Heads up it Cosmetics Celebration Foundation as a brand new formulation of this beloved powder foundation is a coming! Introducing new It Cosmetics Celebration Foundation Illumination!

Take a peek!
It Cosmetics Celebration Foundation Illumination launches December 28th in the brand new It Cosmetics New Year New You Collection. This isn’t yet available on its own but at some point I’m sure It has plans to make it available as an individual purchase.
Available in five shades It Cosmetics Celebration Foundation Illumination is a matte full coverage powder which is supposed to illuminate skin. It comes housed in a chic white compact which contains a brush in a secondary compartment located above the foundation as well as a generously sized mirror. It Cosmetics actually pairs it with their popular Heavenly Luxe Airbrush Foundation Brush for application which has super soft synthetic bristles and a flat top for buffing product into skin.
This formula is loaded up with peptides, antioxidants, niacin, hyaluronic acid, rose, silk, and aloe for a truly luxurious, anti-aging experience.
Unfortunately my drier skin HATES it. If you like matte, full coverage powders you’ll adore this. In particular if your skin is super oily you’ll love it. However, those of us with drier skin likely won’t get on very well with it. I find the finish unforgivable even when paired up with the brand new It Cosmetics Feel the Moment Serum which is super hydrating and sets the scene for powder application.
Light and Medium
The texture is a drier powdery consistency which buffs on easily but feels a bit scratchy on my skin. It accentuates my drier, patchy areas badly and makes them more visible and obvious. The powder is very heavy on my face so I feel like I’m wearing a bit of a mask. There’s not denying it is very pigmented so if you need extra coverage this will handle the task easily. Personally I desire a more hydrating BB Cream with lighter coverage to perfect but not necessarily conceal since my skin is already fairly perfect and just needs a bit of brightening and evening out.
Confusing to me would be the fact that I expected this to have some sort of shimmer, sparkle, or glow but in fact it seems exactly like the regular It Cosmetics Celebration Foundation. There’s not really an illuminating glow finish here just a matte powder.
If you like the original Celebration Powder you’re bound to enjoy this as they are equally the same formula. This is more of a pick up for those with oily skin that enjoy using powder foundations or minerals.
Unfortunately, as much as I love It, this is NOT on my hit list. It clings to every single flake and dry spot on my face and makes my skin look dull and tired! Props for the pigmentation and excellent coverage but a sad sign for the dryness and lack of illumination! The wear time varies but I can get a solid four to five hours out if without a touch up.
Celebration Foundation Illumination might be a great pick up if you have oily skin as this is bound to suck up excess oil and saving the day! However, those with drier skin should be a bit wary of it!
