I really enjoy this product. It looks flawless, even, and soft. It photographs well and I do not become an oil slick in an hour. (I'm looking at you, Loreal true match pressed powder!) This stuff is luxurious and a little goes a long way.
Overall, I am pleased. If you are looking for a natural matte, polished look in 15 seconds--purchase. <3
I ordered this from ulta.com I would suggest getting it from qvc if you want the brush with it, its much cheaper that way, but I already have a great flat top kabuki I love, so anyways.. I bought the lightest shade which works great for me. I put it on and it was surprisingly easy to cover any of my redness. I used bare minerals for a while, but it wouldnt cover and would crease and I overall hated it. This makes me so happy, I look airbrushed and flawless but not fake! I used liquid foundation a lot as well as it covered more than any powder, until this! I dont have problematic skin, just redness I hate, so this covers so well without making me look or feel like I have a full face of makeup on. The price is ok, not the cheapest but definitely not the most expensive. I'd definitely buy this again. I also got a sample of the bye bye under eye concealer when I bought this and so far thats fantastic as well! Im overall very happy with this purchase!
Amazing! Looks very natural and it doesn't get oily fast. Love this product!
Light to medium coverage. This is a great.. on the go.. out the door foundation. They need more shades.
I purchased the Tan and it was way too light in this foundation. It made my winter complexion look pale.
I also own the IT Cosmetics CC Cream in Tan (Love it). I can also get by with the medium in the CC Cream with a bronzer. However the Celebration Foundation Tan is lighter than the medium CC Cream. The Tan color in all the photos I've looked at do not represent true to color for this foundation. I hope this can help anyone questioning what shade to purchase.
If you read here "IT Cosmetics" please make more shades.
If you find your correct shade it's a winner.
I purchased this from the Shopping Channel and it definitely was not cheap. The powder really does give amazing coverage and looks great, however it can look a little cakey and it gave me a bunch of bumps on my cheeks and chin :(! There's probably at least 20 small bumps on each cheek, and only a couple on my chin but they make my skin look very unhealthy, and putting the powder on top of them just accentuates them even more. I was really disappointed because I loved the way it looked on my skin, but it's not worth the bumps. That being said, I do have very sensitive skin so this might be a great option for someone who doesn't. It may just be made for more mature skin, because my mother uses this powder and has had no problems, she absolutely loves it!
I would also like to add that after some research, I discovered that the anti-aging ingredients in this line become ineffective with exposure to oxygen, so each time you open the compact, its losing its effectiveness as an anti-aging make-up. If you are only considering buying this because it is "anti-aging", I would suggest looking for a different line of make-up.
My Skin Type:

Previous Foundation Used: LM Mineral Powder
I bought this based off comments in the MB and SCB and it is definitely the best coverage powder foundation I have ever tried. My skin has been very acne prone ever since coming off BCP and it's been a struggle finding a foundation to cover any marks without causing new zits to pop up.
I have yet to find a liquid foundation/bb cream that didn't cause me to break out so I've been limiting myself to powder foundations for the most part.
I purchased this powder in Medium/Light and the only thing I wish is that it had more yellow in it. The first time I wore this foundation, I hated it because I felt the color was off and that it settled into any lines on my face and accentuated pores. It also made my face feel a little tight and itchy (sort of like the LM Mineral Powder did) but it went away after a few minutes.
However, I have come to love this foundation after figuring out how best to manipulate it.
1) Always start with moisturized skin. If your skin is on the dry side, you may not do well with this foundation as it is very drying.
2) Apply lightly and build if you need to. This foundation covers very well and can easily get chalky if you apply it too heavily.
3) Set with another powder. I use Coastal Scents Silica Powder that I've had forever to finish my face. I find that if I don't do this step, I get oily pretty quickly in the day.
I bought this with the dual ended powder brush and use the brush to apply it or the Sephora Mineral Make Up brush. Both work equally well but I love the smaller concealer end of the brush it comes with for a little extra coverage where needed.
This is my first review here ever. I've lurked here for years, but finally feel I have to write about this powder foundation! Bottom line, I love it, and I've used it for 2 weeks and now can say I've finally found my hg foundation!
I've used mally poreless perfection powder foundation for two years. Liked/not loved it. I really did not love the price and how much I had to use to get coverage, and the huge price tag. I was going through one full size every 6-8 weeks, and was tied to qvc in order to get it. Enter this new product. New year, thought I'd try something new!
This foundation is perfection! It is full coverage with two swipes of a brush, and lasts all day. It does not make me greasy all day, yet hydrates my 50 year old face. I work outside in extreme weather, and it stays put! Love that it has great ingredients. I feel better putting this on my face.
One important note. This foundation runs extremely light in colors!! I'm a blonde, blue eyed, medium with reddish undertones gal, and I had to try a few until I ended up with the "Rich" color! That color is supposed to be for very dark skinned women, but it works for me. The others were way to light.
I really like that I have purchasing options as well. Instead of being tied to qvc for mally, and paying exorbitant shipping and handling plus tax, plus waiting 10+ days to receive from qvc! I can buy this at my local ulta store for $35, that's about $20 less than buying mally on qvc. Go online and get a coupon and you can save 20%!
If you're on the fence about this one, try it! You can always return it, but I don't think you will!!
I purchased the Celebration Foundation in the Tan shade. I think that the tan shade is a bit lighter than most tan shades in other brands I have tried. I love the application brush that came with it very much. The powder itself is a very creamy type of powder and adheres to the brush without any fallout. The thickness of the brush helps to distribute the powder very well and I feel that only a small amount of the foundation is necessary to cover my whole face. When I have extra time, I do use a very pigmented concealer (Laura Geller's or It Cosmetics) before hand over the spots that are discolored and let that dry. Then, I put the foundation over that. The finish is very nice and I feel lasts on the face most of the day as there is a good adherence to the face, due to the creamy nature of the powder. Whenever I need to do a quick makeup, this is the foundation I go for, since it applies so quickly, and I don't do the concealer tip above.
I bought this at ulta for $30. It worked for a month flawlessly but started to dry my skin out even with a moisturizer. Will use again but will trade off between other foundations so I don't dry out
it Cosmetics Celebration Foundation is a powder foundation. Bought this product from The Shopping Channel in Canada in medium beige. I think medium light would be better for winter.
Now these type of foundations usually do not nothing for those 65 and over. This one is different. It did not settle into the crepey/wrinkled areas. It was easy to apply with the brush that came with it. The coverage is good and buildable.
The issue I have with this, is after a few minutes my skin feels tight/dry. This sensation goes away after about 10 minutes.
I do like this product, but I think at my age I need to stick with the liquid foundations during the winter months and keep this one for the summer.
