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.

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!
Color Is Off .

Good product not specific color match
Mayra from Colorado
I had to get the lightest one and still not light enough for me and I'm not that light colored skin
Ale from Woodbridge Virginia
I am 33 my skin is mixed and dry, the T zone and my chin has skin from the retinol that I use at night, I like it a lot because this base does not dry my dry skin has good coverage and lasts many hours on my skin I apply it with brush the only bad thing is that it oxidizes to an orange tone
I will definitely buy this again!
FMGirl from Florida
I was looking for something to use everyday in lieu of having to wear liquid foundation and this fits the bill. The coverage is just enough to even out my skin tone without looking to heavy or getting caked up. The coverage also lasts quite a while throughout the day.
Aj from Wisconsin
super orange. I bought the lightest shade and even after using a self tanner it was still too dark and too orange for me.
Th only foundation I woud use!
Judi from Milwaukee, Wi
Use it daily after applying moisturizer. Have no complaints/problems with it.
Angela from Texas
I decided to try this because it was on sale and was also wanting to try something different from my usual powder. This powder does not hold a matte finish and my skin was shiny shortly after applying. The color had a orange undertone.
Best quick application
Sam from Peoria, Az
I love the foundation. It has great coverage and goes on flawlessly.
Not the coverage I was looking for
Maux46 from Morehead, Ky
I thought I could use this alone but the coverage is not the full or buildable coverage I was seeking. I use it over my foundation and it works great.
Great foundation when you use the right brush!
Deena from Virginia
Ok, so at first I really did not like this powder. It was patchy, enhanced texture and basically looked a mess. Using a setting spray helped it look better but it was still just "meh." I really wanted to make it work though, because it does not crack or settle into my fine lines. I went onto the It Cosmetics website and saw that they recommend using a fluffy, not so dense brush with it. I had been using a very dense kabuki brush. I changed my brush and holy cow, it makes all the difference! It's a light-medium coverage, no patchiness with the less dense brush and looks extremely natural!
Lives up to its promises!
Kinda from Wyoming
I was pleasantly surprised at the level of coverage for daily use. This product won't settle into fine lines. I do use a setting spray and this product will not come off in my face mask! My skin looks really great using this 'foundation'.
So far so so good
SouthTXBeautyLover from TX
I've only used it a couple of times so far but no complaints here. The color is a perfect match and it feels nice and smooth when applied.
I think I've found my go-to compact!
ckuz77 from Ohio
Very happy with this purchase. It feel lightweight on my face but provides good coverage.
Melinda from Knoxville TN
I'm 46 years old and have an oily T zone. I normally use the IT CC cream but wanted to try this since it was on sale. So glad I did! This is awesome for summer days! The CC cream is great for winter because of dry air. This powder makes my skin look flawless and I will continue to use on hot and humid days. I've used other powder foundations and they don't compare to the coverage of this one! Highly recommend!
I would buy this again
Sexy from Cincinnati
I use it for touch ups through out the day
great coverage but so much fallout
rose from san leandro,ca
I have oily skin, large pores and dark acne scars. Not to mention uneven skin tone. It cosmetics has never worked for my skin. Always left me cakey, oily and dull looking. I decided to try this product because I really am on the hunt for an easy all in one makeup product. I was extremely happy when the color matched me, didn't leave me looking like a shiny mess and gave awesome coverage. Now my only complaint is the fallout. I've tried lots of ways to use this and each result in me or my bathroom sink covered in powder. Which makes me sad because it's so much expensive product wasted with every use.
SunnySD from San Diego, California
I was surprised by this product. I was hesitant to buy it after I read the reviews but I love it. I am working from home and only wearing make up when we have a groups meeting. This product makes my skin look like I am wearing my IT foundation or even better. Perfect coverage not light but not heavy either. I don't even know if I will go back to my IT foundation. Make sure to get the right tone. I apply it with the IT Buffing Foundation Brush.
Deli from Woodbridge VA
I got light. it is quite dark for a "light". I would exchange for a lighter color but I just feel like it was so chalky so returning.
