It was black card member Sephora sales when I got this.. still a lil pricey for me. The case is beautiful and looks classy, the powder had very fine shimmer. Thats what I was looking for!!I tried it the very next day. There was a small brush within the case. When I swipe the brush onto the compact powder, veryyyyy fine particles came off. My face felt so smooth when applied. It also lasted a few hours (on bare skin) before I needed some touch up. With some foundation beneath, my skin is almost flawless!

I bought this, along with IT's flat top buffing foundation brush, at the recommendation of a makeup artist friend. It has a matte base that provides sheer to medium coverage, and leaves skin with a subtle sheen. It makes my skin look perfect and airbrushed. This is, by far, the very best powder I've ever used.

*whispers: HGHGHGHG!* Why am I not shouting this from the rooftops you might ask?? Well because I'm sooooo afraid to jinx this. I have found a powder foundation I adore which means that sometime in the near future, it will stop being as magical as unicorn tears and fairy dust: it will stop covering EVERYTHING including mild rosacea, mild melasma; it will stop feeling rather creamy on my face; it will stop applying like a dream (over either a sticky type primer and a siloconey type primer); it will stop lasting 10+ hours (with MU setting spray like UD or Skindinavia that some of my other foundations still evaporate when using); it will stop making my 50 year old skin w/ few wrinkles, but a few under my eyes look smooth and even; it will stop NOT settling in said fine lines; the company will decide to d/c it.So, to keep any jinxing from happening, I will just continue to whisper HGHGHG!The shade Fair is perfect for me. Light ended up being 1 shade too dark. For reference, I am: MAC = NC15; EM (semi-matte) = Fairly Light; Rimmel Lasting Finish 25 hour = #100 Ivory; Revlon ColorStay = #150 Buff; Avon Smooth Minerals Pressed Foundation = T04 Nude; EL Double Wear = Desert Beige; Jane Iredale = pressed base in Bisque; Lumene CC Cream = Fair; Smashbox Camera Ready CC = Fair; IT Cosmetics CC + = Light; Diorskin Forever Flawless Perfection Wear in 020 light beige; Lancome Teint Idole Ultra 24H in 210N Buff; CG Outlast 3 in 1 in Classic Ivory 810; Holika Holika Petit BB Moisturizing (formerly moist); NYX HD Studio Photogenic Nude 101; NARS All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation in Deauville; Giorgio Armani Lasting Silk Foundation = 5.5; Urban Decay All Nighter = 1.0;

Trying to figure out how to repurpose this product so that it totally doesn't go to waste. This is a powder, but it feels goopy and cloying on the skin. It illuminates my problem spots instead of concealing them. It was just a bad, bad purchase on my part. Usually I love It Cosmetic products. This one just isn't for me.Maybe as a nude eye shadow?

In order to be actually benefited by sunscreens, you need to put a lot product and also have to keep re-applying throughout the day. So some people say that keeping a thin layer of powder product on your face is more effective to protect your skin. I am not sure if this opinion is accurate, but I did try numerous powder foundations.For a pressed powder foundation, I have used Guerlain, Christian Dior, YSL, Lancome, MAC, Benefit, Body Shop, Sephora, Shiseido, Kanebo, IT Cosmetics, you name what. Honestly, I like IT Cosmetics Celebration Illumination the best. It is is silky, smooth, moist, and does illuminate your skin softly and beautifully. However, if you apply it on a moisturized face, it clings to pores and lines. So, you should use it over a mattifying primer.

Not good. I am very disappointed. I had tried this powder foundation at Ulta twice. Yes, those Ulta lights can certainly be deceiving! I tried the second lightest shade and it looked fine! It was a *bit* darker than my natural skin shade, but it is the dead of summer and I get a bit darker in the face this time of year. I was hesitant to spend $36 on this tiny compact, but I had heard such wonderful things about it (mostly) and wanted to splurge on a good foundation. I brought it home, bought two nice brushes, and did the whole "apply in circular motions" thing. Ugh.Orange. Just NOT the right undertones. For the record I am a MAC NW20, Revlon Colorstay Buff, and Maybelline Fit Me 115. The color is so off putting, it looks like I applied a bad fake tanner to my facial skin. Yes, orange. Also I need to use concealer, it is a must under my eyes as there is really no coverage there. When I apply it the powder simply does EVERYWHERE. I have to wear a "bib" to avoid powder all over my dress/shirt. I hear some girls say that it accents pores, lines, etc. I do see a greater instance of this compared to my oldies but goodies, like MAC Studio Fix, Fit Me, Colorstay, and L'Oreal Infallible. I also have oily skin (especially in summer!) so perhaps I should have gone with the OG formula? I also find it difficult to achieve the perfect coverage. The compact itself is lovely, sturdy and shiny, but frankly there is not a lot of product. I bought it in late June and already am showing quite a bit of pan. It's pretty pricey so it is not a good deal. I also had a "orange" let down with Clinique matte makeup in the tube. I think I am more of a drugstore foundation girl. Might be good for younger girls (I am 42, but my face is in pretty good shape...but still noticing fine lines here and there) and those with a much different skin tone!

My mom bought this on QVC in light but it was a little too light for her so she gave it to me. I tried using it on it's own but unless I pile it on (which results in a nasty cakey dry look that accentuates every pore on my face) it does not provide enough coverage. I can get away with using it by itself on a great skin day which doesn't happen often. Doesn't break me out or oxidize and doesn't make my skin more oily than it already is. I LOVE using it as a finishing powder! Dusting a light layer over a light layer of maybelines matte and poreless foundation makes my skin look flawless. Nice satin finish,seems to help with staying power. I don't think I would buy it myself but will gladly use it up. Should last me forever since I only use a tiny bit each day. Also noticed when using on it's own it sometimes looked patchy.

Love how this makes my face look flawless. I have acne scarring and on days when I don't want to wear liquid foundation, this covers them up all by itself. It didn't last as long as other powders but will repurchase!

Skin: Acne-prone, Fair, Not Sure
Love love love! I was tired of getting breakouts after trying bare minerals and other foundations and finally stumbled on this. Y'all, I can't tell you how great this foundation is. I have very yellow undertones and have very fair skin and the FAIR shade was a perfect match. My makeup at the end of the day looks as good as it does right after I put it on. It covers up my acne and it has really great coverage without drying out. I love that this is an all-in-one product (not like bare minerals where you need a foundation then a mineral veil). It looks really pretty on, not matte and not shiny, more of like an airbrushed look. I never write reviews, but I was so exhausted with shopping for foundations and when I found this, I just had to tell people about it. Love love love this stuff!

My sister had bought this on QVC in the Super Size amount with the brush that it came with; once her delivery came i was eager to see how it performed and looked on her.. i had seen Jamie before on QVC but always held back from buying from the line.. My sister got the Meduim shade at which at first i was shocked since we are both fair skinned.. Once she put on it matched her face perfectly.. Only took less than a minute to put on and she was done.. out the door~ i immediately got on the QVC website and ordered the same Medium shade that came with the brush... It matched me skin tone great as well.. wore it for the last few days and i do have to say that i like it a lot.. easy to put on and has covered my redness fairly well.. I am not used to just wearing a powder foundation on its own.. my skin is very sensitive and am allergic to Talc and this has not bothered me at all.. Although at the end of the day its does start to separate and i can see my redness coming through and it does itch a little but thats only at the end of a 10 hour day... I just reviewed the Matte Sweet Apple Blush if you would like to read that and I just ordered the CC Cream and Illumination in Medium for both me and my sister... i am now a IT Girl! love this line!
