Ingredients
*The initial production of Confidence in a Foundation incorporated a slightly higher concentration of marine-hydrolyzed collagen, a fish-derived byproduct of the food industry, than subsequent production runs. IT Cosmetics has labeled the limited number of units affected with a warning, so users who may be sensitive to these types of ingredients can make an informed buying decision.

How to Apply

Confidence in a Foundation

How to Apply

  • Start by prepping your skin with your favorite IT Cosmetics moisturizer. If you have normal to dry skin, use Confidence in a Cream Moisturizer. If you have combination to oily skin, use Confidence in a Gel Lotion Moisturizer. For your most flawless foundation application, allow the moisturizer to fully absorb.
  • A little goes a long way! Start by applying 1 pump of Confidence in a Foundation onto the back of your hand.
  • Using your Heavenly Skin Skin-Hugging Foundation Brush #707, swirl brush into foundation and apply in sweeping motions starting in the center of your face and blending outward. For hard-to-reach areas, such as under the eyes and around the nose, use the outer edge of the brush.
  • For more coverage, apply additional product onto the back of your hand, then swirl brush into foundation and stipple (bounce) brush onto skin.
  • As your finishing step, sweep a small amount of Bye Bye Pores Poreless Finish Airbrush Powder all over using your Heavenly Luxe Wand Ball Powder Brush #8 for an ultimate airbrushed effect.

Customer Reviews

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Too Good to Be True First, I love IT Cosmetics and have almost every product. I purchased this foundation based on the "long wear" claim. At first, I thought it was the perfect foundation in the shade Light Natural. Going on, my normal skin type looked flawless. Then a few hours later, the foundation began to separate and look awful. For reference, I used the Confidence in a Gel, Bye Bye Pores Primer, Confidence in a Foundation, and Bye Bye Pores Powder. I reached out to IT Customer Support only to be told that this product may not work for me. With all the claims, this should be the perfect foundation - but it was too good to be true.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not bad! I was skeptical about this foundation because I've seen negative reviews. But honestly, most of the reviewers had combo to oily skin. So, I decided to give it a try because I loved the original cc cream. My first impression was that a little goes a long way. I've been using about half a dime size or less for my entire face with no concealer and I'm able to cover my whole face with little to no scaring peaking through. The color shade (light honey) wasn't too far off (a little light). It faded beautifully too. I also didn't need to set this foundation at all nor did I have to wear primers and it lasted just as long as other foundations (high end and drugstore) with primer. What got me really excited about this foundation was that my large pores on my nose wasn't peeking through nor sliding around. My nose and right below it sweats like crazy that nothing can stay on (you'll see it in my photos). It's stays irritated, dry and patchy for a good 4-5 months from spring to early fall. Now of course this foundation doesn't stay on when it's that wet. However, it doesn't look all weird and broken apart like other foundations. I've worn it daily for a week now and it's been compatible with my skin.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great long wearing product I really love to try foundations, so I have used many. This one goes on so smooth and blends out so easily. I just used one pump and had plenty for my entire face. My skin is super oily, but it held up throughout the day. I am super impressed that it lasted that long. Will definitely purchase this in the future!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice coverage, nice finish. The it cosmetics confidence in a foundation does just that, give me confidence while wearing it. Like how it's described with a velvet-matte finish, it's not too matte but it's also not shiny or dewy. It's full coverage but not cakey or heavy & it feels lightweight & comfortable. It does have a scent but it doesn't linger & it dissipates after application. I use a foundation brush to buff it in & it looks great,

Asked by: karenkk
Hi there! Thank you for reaching out to us. It can be several months before a new product launch amasses reviews, as it takes time for people to discover the product, purchase and review. To mitigate this delay and ensure that shoppers are able to consider the feedback and reviews of their peers prior to purchase, we send free product samples to consumers via a third party. We do not interact directly with these consumers, nor are they in any way required or even incentivized to leave a review. We know how important it is to understand other customers’ experience with a product when considering purchase, so we do this in an effort to help you gather all the information you need to make the best buying decision for you! If you have any further questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to reach out. We are always here for you! XOXO Tina

I wear Light Medium in Bye Bye Foundation what color would I need to get in the new one.

Asked by: Nannyruth
Hi there! Thanks for reaching out to us! Confidence in a Foundation has a much wider shade range than Bye Bye Foundation, so the shades will not have an exact match. Based on the information provided, we recommend trying the shade 135 Light Natural (N) in Confidence in a Foundation. We hope you try IT out! XOXO Tina

I used the light in the IT-O2 ultra repair liquid oxygen foundation.  What shade should I used in this new foundation?

Asked by: ang73
Hi there! Thanks for reaching out to us! We would still recommend taking a look at the Light shade family when selecting your shade in Confidence in a Foundation. For your closest match with this wider shade range, IT is important to keep your undertone in mind! Once you determine your undertone, select the lighter option of any two shades that you are between. We hope this helps, but don't hesitate to reach out to our Customer Care Team at 1.800.356.5120 for further assistance! XOXO Tina

Has anyone else noticed little white specks after applying this foundation? 

Asked by: Anna28
Yes I noticed little white specks  after applying the foundation.  The first bottle I bought had this problem I exchanged it thinking that maybe it was just  that particular bottle .  I am on the second bottle now and I’m still having the same problem.  I really love this foundation I hope I just bought a bad batch.
