Most Helpful Positive Review Fair Light matches me perfectly, medium coverage
First of all I have never tried this before but I'm certainly purchasing this once its gone! It goes on so smooth and matches my skin perfectly, I cannot even tell that it is on. Kind of odd that it looked great before and after my medium color spray tanner, but hey if it works it works. It covers like a foundation but isn't heavy at all like some powders can be. Sometimes I wear liquid foundation but in the summer they are just way too hot and heavy, even the high end brand that I use. This powder foundation is replacing my liquid during these hot and humid months for sure. The only thing that I do not like is that it makes the pores around my nose stand out. Not the pores on my nose, but the pores to the left and right of my nose (about an inch under my eyes). However, I do not cover my entire face in foundation and only use it under my eyes, my T-zone, and any areas that need covering like a left over scar from a pimple or discoloration. I try to wear the least amount of make up possible. Some foundation, blush, mascara, and maybe a setting spray is all I ever need on normal days. On special occasions I'll whip out the liners, shadows, and shading. Anyways, this stays on for hours without a make up setting spray. I used 100% pure rose hydrosol to 'set it' with a fresh glow and feeling and it stayed on for about 3-4 hours looking brand new. Then I used ULTA brand make up setting spray and it stayed on all day, for about 7 hours give or take. I don't use any primer before putting this on (again, just too heavy in the heat) but I do use my vitamin C serum before hand and let it dry completely and then use this Bye Bye Foundation Powder. I will be purchasing for next summer at the very least. Honestly I love the liquid foundation that I use so I'll prob use this during hotter and stickier weather. We'll see what happens when the weather cools down. Overall I believe that IT knocked it out of the park with this one and I'm thoroughly satisfied and happy.
Most Helpful Critical Review Patchiness, large pores, very dark
I am an avid IT Cosmetics Fan, and have been dying to try their Bye Bye Foundation Powder for a little while now! Unfortunately, this product completely missed the mark for me. My facial skin is normal and then oily in my T zones. I will say, the one thing that I did like about this product is that it did conceal my redness, and uneven skin tone. With that being said, let's jump right in: the shade range is lacking. I am never the lightest shade of any powder or foundation, usually 2-4 shades above the lightest- so naturally, I chose one up from the lightest,"Fair-Light". It was definitely a few shades too dark for me, and very orange-y tone. The coverage IS definitely build-able! I did notice though, the more I built, the darker it got. I tried just building it over tiny areas like my pimple, but then I would just have one really orange spot. As far as a powder goes, it did cover my 3 pimples more than any other powder would, but it just wasn't enough, and wasn't comparable to a liquid foundation. I really was also confused as the best way to apply this. I tried a powder foundation brush, fluffy brush, and a puff. None of these provided me with an even coverage, all of those applications were very patchy and powdery. I also tried using this with and without a primer, and it didn't make any difference with the patchiness. The product claims that it won't settle into fine lines, but that wasn't the case for me either. It exaggerated pores and lines that I am usually not even concerned with! I'd Lastly, the product is very, very messy. No matter the applicator I used, the powder was very dusty and got everywhere. I'd also like to mention that I do NOT have sensitive skin, and it made my skin feel itchy. Overall, it just didn't work for my skin, or my needs. I really expected more for the price. I don't think I would purchase this again, but I feel like if you have little to no breakouts, and little to no lines/large pores, this product might be a good match for you.

I so wish I could find the right color. Because the color was off I tried another pricey brand and it just did not make my skin look at fresh, clear and soft. With the Bye Bye, at the end of the day my skin still looked so amazing.
Servingsand from Indiana
I accidentally ordered the wrong product I meant to get the other option which is more of a cream foundation. I was pleasantly surprised how well this covers my face and it's not cake-y or dry.
Great foundation powder
Bell from Pikeville Kentucky
Although the lightest shade is a tad dark on me i really love this powder. Great coverage and lasts for a good while with the right primer and setting spray.
settles into pores and fine lines
Beth from Wisconsin
This stuff is depressing. It makes fine lines and pores I didn't even know I had scream "HERE I AM!", no matter how I tried making it work. This might be great for young, poreless skin...but for my 50 y.o., slightly oily skin with large pores and fine lines, it's just plain gross. I've tried dense and fluffy brushes, sponges, with and without primer/setting spray/finishing powder...used with other IT products and other high-end products...SAME result. It made me blotchy, orangey, and look at least 10 years older. NO THANKS.
Maximum coverage all the way!
Lisa from Connecticut
I use this Bye Bye Foundation either over my normal application of foundation and without. Either way, it's a brilliant development.

Been wearing this product for 2 years now and am very happy with it.

I had never used this product before. I was looking for something that would cover my aging flaws. (Sunspots, discoloring) It works great!
Too shiny and heavy
Villagelady from New York, NY
I am light to medium with neutral undertones. My skin is oily in summer so I was looking for something lightweight with a matte finish. I had been using Milani Conceal + Perfect powder and I liked it a lot but it seemed to be out of stock everywhere so I decided to try this. I bought the shade Neutral Medium because there was only one Light Medium shade and it was described as warm. But the Neutral Medium was quite warm. The finish was slightly shiny and it was obvious that I was wearing makeup. I could see my pores even though I was wearing pore filling primer. I previously tried the IT Cosmetics CC Cream (which I didn't love) and this powder has a similar finish so for those who like the CC Cream, it may be a good choice. However I am not going to keep using it.
would not buy this again
Mari from Florida
I ordered the same color as my 'It' CC cream which I love! but this was a BIG mistake for this powder. As in other reviews, I used two different applicators (this powder does not bring one) but with either one I was a blotchy umpa-lumpa (not a good look). So my problem was mainly a color-match issue! in general I think the coverage looked pretty nice, you do need to apply it on using very little amount and building it up to avoid the blotchiness. But in general I was not a fan, powder is supposed to be an easy application for me and between the awful color and trouble with application this is a no-go for me.
It isn't what I hoped for by IT
Belledajour from IL - Illinois
It Cosmetics take a few tries to get your right one. I tried this after using Clinique which I never tried.On comparison with restrictions for sanitary purposes you can only try when you have bought it. Different texture and light it felt less smooth than Clinique and the color was off. It said full coverage and I needed to use more than I would. I tried it once and I won't say it is bad at all. It just doesn't have a shade for me in this compact that is right.
Full coverage powder foundation
Monica from California
Although this product doesn't come with a sponge applicator, its best applied with a sponge for full coverage. I use my beauty sponge to apply all over the face, it is a matte finish but doesn't feel dry at all.
The only powder foundation I will use
Kalista from WA
I have dry skin, and this is the only powder foundation I can use without completely drying me out. You can build the coverage, which I appreciate! If you have dry skin, this will still work for you, I love it.
Debz916 from Connecticut
It's part of my morning make-up routine, which consists of mascara, foundation and eyebrow pencil. You don't need a ton of make-up to look and feel good about yourself!
