this product is amazing, it covers my acne scars and dry skin

- Ulta User

it stays on about 8 hours, but doesn't cake or look dry

- Ulta User



i'm 40years old skin is maturing slowly , even though it's light coverage, definitely buildable ,but not to full, you do have to use a lot if you want medium coverage, i used sponge, the brush works better,, i got mine at an awesome deal came with brush, eye an face cream an some samples, i was expecting more coverage but overall would recommend, feels like skin on your face and makes you feel good that, your skin is being taking care of by good products:)

pore minimizing

i love this product, has spf 50, evens out my skin tone and stays on pretty well, but i give it time to dry/set before i use the finishing product bye bye pores illumination

- Ulta User

i do however still swear by the best pore filling primer of all time, tarte clean slate timeless smoothing primer, to fill in on the part of my cheeks at the base of my nose and right between my eyebrows and it's a perfect combo

Perfect for late 30's Skin W/ Oily T-Zone!

I am in my late 30's, with medium to tan skin, lots of freckles from my endless tanning days, redness in my cheeks, larger pores around the base of my nose, VERY oily t-zone and sometimes I break out on my chin--I just made myself sound hideous, but I promise I'm not, I just want to be honest! I have been a religious Bare Minerals Original formula advocate since 2004. When I turned 35 I noticed that it just didn't flatter my skin the way it did in my 20's and early 30's. It made me look older, it drew attention to the baby fine lines between my brows, and around my eyes, and made my pores look enormous. It just wasn't working. I tried to be brand-faithful and use their other products including bare skin, and Bare Pro, and neither were a hit. I ordered this off of tv half expecting that it would slide off my face within minutes since I have such an oily t-zone. I was so wrong. This is perfect coverage if you just want to even out your tone but don't want it to be so obvious that you're wearing make up. But here's the trick YOU HAVE TO APPLY IT WITH THE HEAVENLY SKIN BRUSH or it won't work. I've read the reviews about difficult application or that it doesn't stay, you HAVE to use the brush. Using the brush makes a world of difference. You use SO MUCH LESS and it goes on so evenly that but for the fact that it makes my skin look phenomenal, I can hardly tell where it stops and my skin begins. It's blendable, buildable, and so far I've not had any trouble getting it to stay on my super greasy days. I do touch it up towards the middle of the day but again, it takes second and it blends perfectly. I have not been setting it with anything either and for me that seems to work. I do however still swear by the best pore filling primer of all time, Tarte Clean Slate Timeless Smoothing Primer, to fill in on the part of my cheeks at the base of my nose and right between my eyebrows and it's a PERFECT combo. « less

Get it NOW!

I'll get the stereotypical, "I never write reviews" statement out of the way first (seriously, I don't!). When I saw that this product only has 3.6 stars overal I was so SHOCKED that I felt like I had to add my 2 cents. I am a beauty product junkie. I'm 29, work full-time, have an active toddler and another little one on the way. I've been looking for ways to simplify my morning routine because mama ain't got much time these days, which is why I'm so glad I found this product! I'm starting to notice some early signs of aging (say it isn't so!) and I tend to prefer light to medium coverage for my uneven skin. I can't necessarily speak to the anti-aging effects of the Confidence in a Compact, but I can vouch for the beautiful coverage that it provides! A little bit goes a long ways so if you're impatient (i.e., slapping a bunch of product on to get the job done) this can quickly look heavy. BUT, oh my flawless is this beautiful! Personally, I prefer to wear an under eye concealer to brighten my (tired mom) eyes a bit before applying this foundation, but I find that this product doesn't settle into my fine lines as much as other products have. Bonus: there is an unexpected cooling effect when you initially apply the foundation which is quite refreshing. I haven't used the sponge that comes with the compact, but I've found that the brush that is part of this set does the trick perfectly. And to top it all off...THIS HAS SPF!!!All in all I cannot say enough good things about this little multitasker of a product! Take it from someone who has tried dozens of foundations; this one is a no-brainer! « less

Horrible Foundation

I was very excited about IT Cosmetics Confidence in a Compact. It sounded like the perfect foundation for my dry, uneven, 35 yr old skin. At first I ordered Medium, because the color online seemed to match my skin tone best. While waiting for it to arrive, I looked up some skin swatches on the colors offered and realized Medium would be too dark, so I ordered Light the next day. Fortunately, I received both the same day. I didn't open the medium and plan on returning it. The color Light is still very slightly too dark for me, but It wasn't a huge contrast. First off, a little goes a long way. I stippled it on and tried to buff it in w the brush but it was sliding all over the place! I couldn't get it to blend evenly. If I tried to add more, the new layer grabbed on to the first layer and moved it. My first impression was, that this stuff is heavy! VERY greasy-feeling too. Not pleasant at all. It sat on my skin and never set!!! Once I played with it and got it to look halfway decent, I locked it in w setting powder..which did help very slightly but it didn't last. When I got outside into natural light, It was worse! It brought out every pore, every scar, every fine line and uneven texture on my face! It looked horribly cakey too!!! A few hours later, I gave my husband a kiss and noticed this weird film on his lips....I was like, "Where did that come from?!" I was wearing my Lip Sense so it wasn't my lipstick...sure enough! It was the foundation!!! I touched my chin and it was a greasy, slippery mess! Rubbed right off onto my finger! I don't ever have issues with oily skin either so I know it was the foundation. The coverage didn't last only but a few hours. I am returning this asap. I have $4 drugstore foundation that works better than this stuff! Seriously disappointed in this. Would not recommend this to anyone.

Simply THE BEST FOUNDATION (and best deal) EVER!

I cannot say enough good things about the Confidence in a Compact SPF 50 Foundation with the Luxe Brush. First of all, what a phenomenal deal this foundation-plus-brush offer is. You get the Confidence in a Compact foundation PLUS that $48 Luxe brush for a little more than the foundation alone costs. Wow! That is some deal. Now on the subject of the Confidence in a Compact SPF 50 Foundation, it is one of the best foundations I have ever used. I love anything with treatment in it and I also like the fact that it has a high SPF (50!) that is a mineral (Titanium and Zinc) sunscreen/block in it (since I have read so many bad things about chemical SPFs over the past few years). All that coupled with a fabulous, buildable coverage and you have got one amazing foundation. I use several of IT's foundations: CC Cream, CC Powder Foundation, and now the Confidence in a Compact. They all are great, but I think that this is my new favorite one. The CIAC foundation is so natural and it lasts all day. I finish it with the Bye, Bye Pores Powder (in a compact). My skin looks flawless. I also use the Confidence in a Cream moisturizer and the 50 Primer under it. I use the same color in all the It foundations: Fair. It matches my skin perfectly. Whenever possible, I try to take advantage of the QVC IT Special Offers that include brushes. They always turn out to be the right tool for application of product at a great price. Honestly, this foundation looks like my own skin. It is not heavy or cakey. It is a beautiful, natural finish. If you are not getting the results you want, I would suggest making sure you use the right IT brush. They always give me a wonderful, can't miss result. <span class="shop__a pd-reviews__expand-link pd-reviews__translate-span" data-hide="9017767555846380304-full" data-show="9017767555846380304-short" jsaction="pdui.tvc">« less</span>

Unbelievably Amazing Product

I cannot believe how well this product works for me. I am 27 with dry, sensitive skin and some fine lines and wrinkles forming around my eyes, and forehead. I have struggled for years to find a good foundation that gives me full coverage, hydrates my skin, doesn't settle into the fine lines and age me, and also has staying power to last all day. This is hands down THE best foundation I have ever used and I will never use anything else as long as they don't discontinue this product. I have used bare minerals since I started wearing makeup thinking there couldn't possibly be anything better for my skin. Their liquid serum foundation just smeared on my skin and never seemed to absorb. It would rub off on everything, my clothes, my hands, the clothes of people I hugged.... and it would settle in my forehead lines and make me look even dryer and aged despite its description to have hydrating, seamless coverage. I can't believe I wasted so many years thinking there was nothing else. I can't emphasize enough how amazing and life changing it cosmetics confidence in a compact foundation has been for me in just one week of everyday use. It applies so easily, blends well, feels refreshing on my skin and as the day goes on it NEVER settles into my fine lines. It also doesn't look caked on and I don't have to keep going back over it to blend obsessively. I actually like the way I look in pictures now which rarely ever happens. It makes my skin appear healthy, glowing and hydrated and gives me the perfect color. I am fair but I chose the "light" shade, which is the next darkest shade from their fairest shade and surprisingly it doesn't give me that "pink face" appearance and line of demarcation along my neckline like other shades of makeup have in the past. I just want others who struggle as I did to know how amazing this product is and thank you, It Cosmetics, for changing my life.
