Best concealer I have ever come across. I suffer from acne scarring and ocassional breakouts, and this concealer works WONDERS to cover pretty much everything. And it STAYS PUT, isn't cakey and blends in with my skin tone wonderfully. I wear Golden Medium in EM bases, for a reference. If you're looking for a full coverage concealer then I definitely recommend this.

Wow - a concealer that actually conceals! Worx relatively well for my dark undereye circles (EM's Abbott Perk Me up worx the best for this, but if I'm out of that, I use this). When mixed w/ my EM Mint Concealor, this is perfection! It completely eliminates the redness I have on both sides of my nose (broken capillaries), the apples of my cheeks (mild rosacea) and on my chin (mild rosacea) as well as on the occasional pimple. EM Mint turns me too white when used alone.
For lighter discolorations, IC in Medium works well on its own for evening out my skintone. The only negative for me is that on its own, (just like Abbott) this is too drying under my eyes, so I either mix a bit of moisturizer or I use to set my liquid under-eye concealor which bumps up the coverage level.
I use an eyeshadow brush to apply to small areas - coverage is more even and opaque enuf for me that way. Blends w/ my very fair skin seamlessly! For larger areas, I use my EM flat brush. LOVE this stuff!
I use Intensive in Medium during the spring/summer months when I'm a bit darker. I use Intensive in Fair during the fall/witner months when I'm lighter in color. Both work effectively - just depends on the time of year which I use.
HG status for me!

This concealer was one of the products that I ordered from EM. I have another HG here! The Matte foundation is my new HG & so is this AWSOME concealer! A little goes a long way. Extremely pigmented & I have to also ad that all of the EM products that I tried today are very user friendly & clean. The powders don't fly all over the place like some other mineral make-up does. ALL YOU MINERAL MAKE-UP LOVERS, GIVE EM PRODUCTS A TRY!! I consider myself to be a very skeptical cosmetics consumer. I'm the person that you'll find @ the Sephora & M.A.C. stores 3 times a week, & I feel that EM is a truly amazing company! I was just blown away today. Move over BE!

1. Pretty good price for a LOT of product. I bought the full size 5.5g for about $7-8 and it will probably last me until the end of time
2. Super quick shipping, great customer service, and love the free sample options
3. A little dark on me, but matched my yellow skin tone decently
4. Decent in covering up small blemishes and acne marks
1. Basically useless for concealing under-eye bags. This, along with other mineral concealers I have used, usually just ends up accentuating them.
2. Godawful cheap packaging makes a mess of everything. When I carry this in my purse, powder always tends to leak out. The packaging could really be better!
3. Believe it or not, this concealer made me break out a little. I always felt a little itchy upon application. Nothing too disastrous, but I did notice that after I stopped using it my skin did improve.
I feel bad for giving Everyday Minerals a bad review since I like the company, but overall, would not buy again.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Combination, Medium, Warm Hair: Black, Straight, Fine Eyes: Black
My skin: oily-combo, acne, acne scars. Skin tone: warm medium with Asian yellow undertones. I wear everyday minerals colors in Light, Light neutral, Light medium, and Golden medium. Rimmel- Soft Beige, MAC 30-35.
I got this as a sample with 3 other concealers. Intensive medium suits me the most, in terms of color and coverage. I think the sample size is quite a substantial amount especially if it's just for covering small spots, it comes in a 5gm plastic jar if you're just getting the sample.
Texture and color:
I would describe the color as a light beige with yellowy neutral undertones. I do think it is a tad on the light side, so if you're quite tanned, I recommend going with the tan concealer because this might look like chalk on your skin. I think the color is perfect for me since I tend to go for concealers a shade or two lighter than my skin tone.
The texture is quite thick powder, making it very good for concealing scars and red marks. But its still silky smooth to touch, but I would not recommend layering it heavily on, it will get cakey.
I apply using a stiff lip brush, but I guess you can apply using a concealer brush or even your finger. I apply it before I apply my foundation, I don't even blend it in completely because my buffer brush takes care of that when I put on my foundation. I start with spotting it on my blemishes and layer more if needed, then I blend it out a bit.
I love this as a spot concealer, it works great for my acne scars and blemishes, it even pretty descent for current zits. No more redness or unsightly spots. But I hate this for undereye, every time I try to use this as an under eye concealer, it cakes and settles into my lines and that's a pretty scary thought considering I don't have noticeably fine lines. I stick to cream/liquid concealers when it comes to my eyes, maybe my under eyes are just too dry.
I think the staying power is average, it does stay better when I apply it wet and with primer. On my super oily days, this does slip and slide especially if I applied too much. It looks like an awful mess because it cakes and clumps together. But I still really like it as a spot concealer because I know I won't break out from this.
I really like this concealer, I admit its not perfect, but I definitely do not break out from this and I like that it blends in perfectly into my skin leaving me flawless. Most days I just put on some of this stuff and some mineral veil and I'm done.
I would definitely recommend this.

OMG! Best concealer in this world for me! Even though I'm acne-prone, have lots of post acne scars, but didn't really wear concealer, because I could never get it right. I've tried EMD concealer in Light, multitask, Multi-Intensive, but color wasn't exactly right, if not too light.
Intensive Medium concealer just becomes my skin!!! I don't even have to blend it. I just pickup some concealer particle from the jar w/ EDM concealer brush (HG also) and just dab it onto my blemishes. I either blending/buffing, or using EDM eye kabuki brush (which is good for highlighting btw) reveals the blemish I've covered. Just dab-tap and voila! imperfection gone!! :D

good concelar. covers dark circes very well. also good at covering blemishes.

I found this concealer was good for concealing brown spots on my face though this wasn't so good for covering up redness or any blemishes. I found it appears quite ashy and ruddy on the skin if not blended well. I don't think i would repurchase this product.
Age: 25-29 Skin: Normal, Tan Hair: Black Eyes: Brown
Overall, this concealer is a good buy. It can become chalky if applied with a heavy hand. It is perfect underneath a light sweep of EDM sunlight concealer. It does have a tendancy to accumulate in my undereye wrinkles. I have read that adding a little moisturizer may help to make it creamy, I have to try that technique. I received it as a free sample in my sample kit. A little can go a long way.

I have this in medium and I use it over my mac studio finish concealer to set it. I LOVE this powder because it provides the extra coverage I need...but I don't know if it's making my makeup turn orange or it's the mac concealer. Also, this powder tends to make my skin a little itchy.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Combination, Medium Hair: Black Eyes: Black
In my opinion, this doesn't compare to the liquid/cream concealers from drugstore brands because it goes on slightly chalky and doesn't really have wonderful coverage..
I think it would be wonderful if it was cream or liquid-based but I guess most people like the fact that mineral makeup is in powder form?
But didn't really work for me because a natural-looking application didn't cover my dark circles well and a heavy application covered my dark circles but gave it a chalky look. This also didn't cover blemishes around the t-zone well because due to the nature of it being a loose powder, it settled above my blemishes and made it more obvious (despite reducing the redness of it)

I use intensive medium tan and I like this for brightening my under eye and shadowy spot on my face. Do not use this on a birthmark or mole or scar, this concealer will highlight any imperfection. Im glad I only got a sample size of this and not full sized amount.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Combination, Fair-Medium Hair: Black Eyes: Brown
I kind of regret buying the big size of this, because.. after reading reviews i actually thought this concealer would turn out perfect for my asian skin due to all the comments of how it's lighter than it looked in the jar. Well.. that didn't really give me that idea.. this shade was rather a tad darker than my yellow untertone skin, it's great when i mix it with a darker foundation.. however if this was to go with my normal skintone.. i get dark shades in the areas i had concealed. All in all, the coverage it offers is excellent, so one lippie off for just not matching my skintone.. even though i often wear medium shades!
Age: 25-29 Skin: Combination, Fair-Medium Hair: Brown Eyes: Brown
I agree with another reviewer: This is a lighter shade of medium. If you're really tan, you probably want to get one of the darker shades. I'm an NC30 and this covers really well and blends very easily. At first I tried the light shade, which was too light on me. But the medium is just right. I can even use it around my eyes without it being too heavy! However, I find that the I can use the EDM foundation in the intensive formula as my concealer, and it covers and lasts exactly the same as this. IME, it's great for those of you using one of EDM's other formulas who need heavier coverage over the occasional redness or zit. But if you're already using the intensive foundation, I say skip this one altogether!

I don't use concealer very often, but if I need it this is what I use. It does a great job. It has excellent lasting power, stays virtually invisible underneath EDM's semi-matte foundation and covers pimples and other scars excellently. I... don't use much so I'm almost certain my sample jar will last me forever, but if I ever did run out, I would rebuy. I hate the jar, lol, especially since I took the sticker off, but next time I'll be smarter and only poke holes in it.

I got this concealer in a intensive tan. It works great on my skin. I dab a little on with my concealer brush and my dark marks virtually disapear. I use this product mostly on blemishes because under the eye it tends to look a little to cakey. I got this in the free sample kit and it was a good amount, Im sure ill have it for a while.

This concealer does provide pretty good coverage. This is something that's really rare when it comes to powderconcealers. It also doesn't cake up. And, a large container of this stuff will last you a really long time.

I tried the Multi-tasking Concealer and found it to be much too pale for my skin, even though it was advertised as being perfect for any "medium" skin tones. Intensive Concealer in Medium looked too dark from the picture on the website, but it's actually just a tad darker than the Multi-Tasking Concealer, and works absolutely brilliantly on my skin.
This stuff is great for covering up zits or red blotches without further irritating your skin. With liquid or stick coverups, I always felt like it wasn't helping to glob stuff on over pimples, but this mineral concealer seems to let your skin breathe and heal.
It also has fantastic staying power on the greasier areas of my face - I use it on my nose, the parts around my nose that always seem to be a bit red, and just above the cupid's bow on my upper lip. Unlike liquid concealers, this powder stuff doesn't come sliding off.
However, the absolute best part has to be the way this stuff makes my pores disappear. I have large pores on my nose and a few strokes of a brush with this concealer makes my skin look flawless.
It's perfect, my HG concealer for sure.

Fantastic concealer. Perfect for my skin color too.

This product didn't cover my undereye circles at all. It just lightened the skin all around them- made them look worse.
