Comments about It Cosmetics Celebration Foundation Illumination:

I am a diehard bare minerals fan but tried this when they were out of my shade. I loved the coverage of the 'normal' it cosmetic but I personally have too much acne for the shiny one since my face looks oily when I apply the needed amount for coverage.
I would recommend the regular it cosmetic for full coverage but love the idea of this and with the right person I think it would look amazing.

          game changer

          By makeupjunkie92

          from Texas

          Comments about It Cosmetics Celebration Foundation Illumination:

          I've been using Tarte Amazonian Clay foundation for a few years. I still like that foundation, but this one is definitely a game changer. I did my makeup in about 30 minutes. It usually takes an hour because I'm blending foundation, taking a beauty blender to make sure it doesn't look Cakey, and applying concealer under my eyes takes a long time to blend. With this foundation I used my sigma f80 and buffed it into my skin. The foundation looked okay it covered up my redness and dark circles but I thought eh. Once I got into my bathroom and looked into the mirror my face looks flawless! I am battling some acne around my chin now and it's barely noticeable unless you're right on top my face. I've never seen my face look so glowy and perfect. I was skeptical because this is a powder foundation, but it's now my new favorite.

                Was really looking forward to using this foundation as it claims to be full coverage. It accentuated my lines and my pores, it also caused my skin to break out.

                  • Q:

                    I've been loving this product so far and have used it for a fuller coverage setting powder over my bb cream. I've currently been using a basic fluffy powder brush but want to invest in one of the It Brushes for Ulta to use with it. Which one do you recommend to use with this product that doesn't cake it on but still gives extra coverage?

                      Hi!
                      You would choose a foundation shade depending on the color of your skin.

                      Fair porcelain
                      Light (Ultra Fair Skintones)
                      Medium (Light to Medium Skintones – Most Popular Shade – 70%)
                      Tan (Warm Medium)
                      Rich (Deep Tan)

                      We hope this helps!! XOXO
