Hey makeup nerds, Punk here with some Try it Tuesday fun, let’s go. After trying out the IT Cosmetics Celebration Foundation Illumination in Fair for some time I’ve got a mini review for y’all.
For being a pressed powder foundation, this stuff is incredibly full coverage and not cakey at all, it feels like it turns into a cream product on the face. On “no makeup” days I use this with primer, mascara and some brow gel and call it good. This foundation keeps my oiliness at bay and doesn’t cling to my dry patches.
Today I used my Smashbox primer and the Pore-fessional in my t-zone and applied the foundation over top with the IT Brushes for Ulta Live Beauty Fully All Over Powder Brush #211. I will say honestly, this brush and foundation are pricey, and you don’t need a $40 brush to make it work. I’m just excessive.
On an all out makeup day I like using this over my concealer and BB cream after I set everything with my Airspun for some extra coverage and a slight glow, as it is an illuminating powder foundation.
Final thoughts: I love this foundation, I use it all the time, can you live without it? Yeah. Unless you are a die hard powder foundation user, you can get away without this step. The formula and finish are incredibly unique, and for that reason I think it’s worth the price, however, if you’re on a budget the slight boost in coverage is probably not worth it.
Thanks for hanging out, stay gold.
