This product provides great coverage and is so versatile! I love that there are different shades of green, which is helpful for me because sometimes I just get slight redness but other times a zit is bright red! The powder is great if you use a pressed powder foundation or a liquid - it sets and stays on either one. I would so buy this again!
The only thing it doesn't blend with well is mineral makeup - I have BareMinerals and I cannot use this concealer with that (even though I use the big-ass concealer brush from BareMinerals to apply this). The mineral powder just doesn't cling to this concealer - I suppose you would use a different concealer, maybe a green concealer stick or something creamier when using mineral makeup.
My second, and only other qualm with this product is that some of the pigments are shimmery. Shimmery? Why would they ever make concealer like that? I don't know. But it is such a small amount that it doesn't really matter - and regardless you have to cover it up with foundation and maybe a skin-colored concealer too, depending on what you're trying to cover.
I picked this up at Walgreens when they were having a 40% off sale. My skin had been red for the past few days so I decided to give it a whirl. This powder does cancel out some redness however it also gives a green sickly color this is very unnattractive. Using a Mac 187 I was careful of how much powder I applied but still, it looked unnatural. The powder just sits on my face. It isn't anything special.
The compact has a mirror & a brush & the mosaic of the powder is pretty. It blends well & works great at making the redness go away without turning you green.
This stuff is amazing! I have always had trouble with the green concealer and even after blending it like crazy it still just looked green. This stuff blew me away. I used my Mac 187 brush and dusted a small amount to my red areas and it was like magic. The red was gone. I leaned up to the mirror to see if it looked green or powdery and it wasn't. It just looked like skin (no longer red) yay! So happy. Wish I had found this stuff years ago.
I have red irritated skin thanks to the crazy winter weather.
I saw a tester for this and was curious so I tried some on my hand, and surprisingly the green cast disappeared into my skin leaving a luminous finish behind.
I bought it, and am happy with the results as a finishing powder. Overall, it doesn't really take the red "completely" out of my skin, but somewhat tones it down.
It doesn't stay on very long, even when set with fix+.
The packaging is nifty. I think PF is overpriced in general, I only buy their products when on sale.
I won't repurchase this because there is talc in it, I would like to find something talc-free.
Fantastic stuff - horrible redness is visibly reduced, perfect for people prone to red noses, cheeks or red-coloured skin in general. Just be sure not to put too much on, or the green will make you look ill. I use this almost every day to finish off my makeup to tone down the redness on my nose.
The only drawback is that it's not sold in the UK! I buy these in bulk off of Ebay from the US instead. I don't understand why PF isn't sold here, as it's so effective.
I love this stuff! I buy it at Wal Greens and they always have some kind of sale, so it's only like $8!! I've used this one for almost a year and have barely touched it! I don't know if it would cover up anything heavy duty, but for evening out redness (& even some hyper pigmentation) it's pretty great!
It also helps with the "shiney" zone. Yes, the brush is a waste of time, so the compact is too bulky because they left room for it...but I'm sold on this.
I have been using this powder for years, and I still love it. It definately helps with my redness. I have a large red patch on my cheek, and I have a lot of pink in my skin. I am very sensitive and fair. I finish my makeup everyday with this, and I am always surprised at how much red it neutralizes. However, I use my own powder brush. I don't think I have ever bothered with the small brush that comes with it!
Not bad of a powder, but i find the coverage too sheer. possibly because the brush sucks. i still prefer their green cover stick over this :)
At an Ulta one day, during the reddest of my red Retin-A phase, I noticed how closely I resembled a tomato. I was thus shamed by their bright lights into buying this, and I am happy that it did. While I will echo other reviewers and say that the results do not last very long, I did find that it very perceptibly evened out my skin tone. Even at my reddest, I had to learn to use a light hand with this stuff; I would go into the office bathroom two hours after application and find that this product and my oily skin had conspired to leave a sickly, greenish-gray patina on my face. That was when I was a total novice to makeup brushes - I used a sponge to apply it. But I learned to love the brush, as cheap, small, and stiff-bristled as it is. It's convenient; eminently portable; I use it for other products as well, and thus I give this chunky compact a 5. Besides, who doesn't love an extra mirror in the purse? I won't complain about that.
As with all powders, it will accentuate flakiness, and for best results, let it settle. I did not usually use other makeup over this, and I can't remember what I thought about the results the few times that I did. Nor can I remember the last time that I actually used this corrector - a month ago? more? - because my face is no longer red from the retin-a. So I don't know if I'll purchase it again, due to lack of need. But I'd recommend anyone else purchase it.
