Most Helpful Positive Review Love it!
As a finishing powder all over my face. Just enough glow instead of being too glittery or shimmery.
Most Helpful Critical Review Too glittery for an older gal
Felt good on my skin but looked like straight up shiny glitter. Not a good look on older skin - every wrinkle accentuated. Would probably be nice as a highlighter but not as a setting powder. This went back to the store.

I love love IT! I use their confidence in a cream religiously! I love the foundation in the pump both reg& illumination one! I don't really care to much for the powder in the black compact pores one it is just to "powdery for my type of aging skin" but not to say it's bad so I tried the powder this illumination one and I needed something for under my eyes to set concealer and the big crinkle between the brows etc. I thought this might be great vs the $50+ magic powder I love! The 1st delivery the powder was falling right out of the box it's must've been in a gazillion pieces, I emailed ulta support they were wonderful and sent me a new one! But same concerns w delivery right? I asked to poss exchange In store w Covid not sure the "new protocols" said I can't do that? I opened the 2nd one and powder was not in a bazillion pieces but the round part of powder to component was raised out of the compact.....it's breaking slowly!!!! I'm trying to push it down & it's changing the consistency of the powder, prob from oils or what's on my fingers but I have to say I love the actual product! Just wish it wasn't so easily breakable!
Will definitely buy again !
Dawn from NC
I really like this powder! I use it after using the IT cosmetics CC cream! The only downside is the powder broke soon after opening, so I'm afraid I might lose a few pieces of it!
I will be returning this product
Adair from St Simons
The color is nice but way too powdery. I wanted a pressed to powder to lightly set my under eyes and I could see clumps of this powered in my pores.
Wow!! Beautiful on maturing skin
Stephanie from Ohio
Must buy! Makes my 40 year old skin glow and look so natural and flawless! All you need is a nice light swirl around your face and your all set! Please don't ever discontinue

I am Asian with a lighter skin tone. Before applying, it's important to use a good moisturizer. I use sweet almond oil and a drop of rose essential oil. After gently massaging in, I use a powder puff to apply the product and it glides on and gives a good coverage without any heaviness. Because of the texture, using the sponge absorbs too much product and wastes product, and it tugs the skin and it is harder to apply. The translucent color is perfect for me. It is as if I have perfect skin without appearing to have makeup on. I avoid using too much near the under eyes because it can get too shiny and shows lines.
Like product, but powder was broken in pieces.
JoJo from Northwest Arkansas
When I saw the mess it was in, I pressed it back into place as best I could so I could use it. May have to reconsider if I would purchase again as I would want to use it for traveling and would not want to have that mess if it breaks apart that easily.
Not what it says!
Not good! from Greensboro
I bought this thinking it would minimize my large pores. It did not! In fact, it brought them out. I tried several times and finally threw in the trash because I had passed the 30 day ulta return time. Don't buy if you have large pores!
Not for dark skin!
Nina35 from Canton, mi.
I am a caramel shade black Women, and this literally made me look like Casper. I thought it was suppose to be for every skin tone? It didn't give me any illumination, just white , dry looking powder that didn't blend, and sat on the top of my makeup. I'm definitely returning!

Love the lightness!
Vette Lover from Waukesha, WI
It is especially nice to use working from home whenua want to be fresh and have some make-up on w/o being over done.
Feega from Ravenna ohio
My skin looks amazing when I put this on as a finish, foolproof. Cannot overdo
The. BEST setting powder ever!
Love66 from St George Utah
I use this one and the regular powder everyday to set my makeup perfectly with little to No transfer of makeup. I will use this forever and it's talc free.
I don't think I would buy again.
LeftCat5 from Lafayette, La
I opened my box of pressed powder and it was all crumbled. I really don't like loose powder because it makes a mess. I will bring back and hopefully they will exchange.
Best face powder!
Carrie from Concord, CA
I bought this face powder as I needed a product to set my foundation, but wanted it to be light and help brighten my face. Well, I have say I was NOT disappointed with the results. This is by far the BEST face powder I've tried. It's not too sparkly, but has enough illumination to give my face a boost. Very happy with my purchase!!!
Perfect finishing powder
Trobins from USA
This is the third compact I've used, and it takes a very long time to get through the whole compact. Use it with the large IT powder brush- don't use the sponge that it comes with and you can't make a mistake. Can be used over makeup or on its own. No glitter even though the name says illumination, and that's a good thing. A little goes a long way!
sorry, not for combination skin
Kimmie from PA
I ordered this directly from IT Cosmetics. I was excited to try something from the bye bye pores line. I have combination skin, which also means I have some larger pores in my T zone from acne and being oily. So I am willing to spend the money to try stuff. This did nothing for me except feel like chalk on a chalkboard going onto the brush. then felt dry on my face. It may not be for people like me with combination skin, or sensitive skin. I'm not sure. everyone is different and I also think geographic location affects peoples overall skin and health. The packaging is pretty and the idea behind the product is nice. Overall, it feels chalky to me. I used it for 4 days in a row before making up my mind.
Would not buy again
Maly from NC
My favorite finishing powder is makeup forever, tried this as a cheaper alternative, looks great at first, but the finish doesn't stay but 4 hrs at the most.
Love but won't buy
Tracey from Roanoke VA
Use it everyday helps makeup stay fresh looking. This is the second time I purchased the product and it was broken . It cost too much to continue the risk because it falls all over the place and most of it is wasted. I will go back to Bare Minerals and use mineral veil.
It was all cracked when I opened it .
Phyllis from Forsyth ga
When I recurved it the box looked old and when I opened the powder it was broken and pretty much useless .
If you are over 50 this is the best
4Snowball from NY
If you are over 50 this is great. I have to wear concealer and can not wear it without setting it. This is the only one that does not make me look older. I have tried everything!
I love this product
Casey from Alabama
I have really enjoyed this product. It has stayed solid until the very end (no cracking) and leaves my face looking radiant.
Mel from Utah
I use it as a finishing powder when I'm all done my make up. I really like it. I have sensitive skin & doesn't seem to bother my skin.
I dig it!
Whitbail from Downingtown, Pa
I like this pressed powder. I hated the regular Bye Bye pores loose powder, it was so messy. This is much nicer to use. It gives a subtle glow, not a shimmer or glitter really just a nice brightening of your skin. I dig it!
Great finishing product
Maddy from Mount Laurel, NJ
I use this every day and it gives a nice finish to my makeup
Soft looking skin
Laurie from Westminster, co.
I love the way it makes my face look softer. Minimizing my pores and wrinkles.
