          I am a foundation junkie and always avoided powders because my cheeks are dry and sensitive. This for not feel like a dry powder, it feels smooth and soft on my skin. I love how it covers. And I love the illumination it gives my skin.

                  Comments about It Cosmetics Celebration Foundation Illumination:

                  This powder didn't play well with my oily T-zone. It covered well, but was a bit drying. After a few hours it really accentuated my pores, and my pores aren't even that noticeable. I've tried with three different primers and I still have the same result. It's so bad that I'm embarrassed. I'll keep this and use it as a highlighter, but not for everyday wear. It reacts very strangely to my oily areas and creates an almost two-toned look that in natural light is horrifying. It's really easy to apply too much and it becomes cake very easily. For the price of this this product, I am extremely let down.

                      Hi!! Thank you for your question and for being an IT Girl!!! We absolutely recommend using a brush!!! And we recommend either the Dual Foundation Brush or the Flat Top Brush!!! Both are amazing and apply the foundation flawlessly. With the Flat Top you simply buff the foundation on in a circular motion and with the dual foundation, you can use the larger end for all over and the smaller end for those harder to reach places! Hope this helps!!! XOXO

                  • Q:

                    There is no mention of SPF with this foundation. But I noticed titanium dioxide in the list of ingredients. So it is enough to be an SPF factor?

                      A:

                      Although this product does contain Titanium Dioxide and Zinc Oxide, IT Cosmetics cannot advertise that it contains SPF. Due to the new FDA monograph regulations, powder foundations no longer register an SPF even though they may contain a physical sunscreen, so IT Cosmetics does not state how much is in it.

                    I have very oily skin which is prone to breakouts. I also have large pores. Will this product work for me or can you recommend another foundation? I start my day early and by mid morning my make up is almost non existent.

                      A:

                      We recommend testing both Fair and Light shades at your nearest ULTA store to determine your best match:
                      http://www.ulta.com/ulta/stores/storelocator.jsp

                      Fair works best for porcelain to fair skin tones with pink undertones, while Light works best for light skin tones with neutral to golden undertones.

                      The Celebration Foundation Illumination typically lasts for 90 days if you use it everyday, though this may vary due to frequency of use and amount applied.
