I've been using this corrector for years now as a mineral veil to hide redness. This looks amazing after I dust a single layer over my foundation. I really believe that this sticks so well to foundation, and for anyone who has redness they know that the more yellow the better! I've had a really hard time finding something that is as yellow as this and I will splurge without hesitation on high end brands such as Dior, Ellis Faas etc. I buy the sample size on their website because I like to travel light and hate walking around with a heavy bag. Again I use as a finishing dust on my fountation and blush I am astonished at the way it sets my makeup and blush. Even if I wear cheap garish blush this improves the look!

I like this product. It works well with my skin tone and, when used with a light hand and ever-so-slightly damp brush, applies well and looks natural.
Although this product works great with my skin, it wouldn't work for someone with more pink skin, I don't think. On me, it blends in quite well with my neutral/yellow complexion rather than contrasting harshly with pink tones. It is very densely pigmented, so attempting to blend it into pink skin might be quite difficult.
While I would purchase this product again, I don't use it all the time, so I would purchase it very rarely. I like it, but I wouldn't say its an essential (or even daily) part of my routine.

This stuff is fantastic! If you have a warm skintone with yellow undertones, this will banish redness like nothing else. And unlike traditional concealers, you can use just a few specks of this, and its invisible on your skin - no cakiness, no color mismatch. Make sure you have a really good detail brush and use just a tiny bit on a red blemish spot, and blend it in - voila, magically no more redness! If you want to cover a red nose or red cheeks, just use a bit of this stuff with a fluffy brush and it'll reduce it greatly. This has been a treasure product for covering active pimples and the red marks they leave behind.

I've had this for awhile, but almost never reach for it because it is horrible. It is very chalky and doesn't blend well. It doesn't do anything for my undereye circles. Every so often I try to see if I can make this work, but it doesn't.

I'm undecided as to whether or not I'll repurchase this product. Since I'm so pale, this light yellow shade is very versatile for me because it helps to add a bit more yellow to foundations that aren't quite golden toned enough.
How I've been using it is I apply it over my moisturizer in a light layer all over my face with my long handled EDM flat top kabuki to calm down the ruddiness in my skin prior to using concealer and foundation. Then I take a concealer brush and use it to cover my under eye circles. I've found that it doesn't "cover" the circles, but it does create the illusion that they're less obvious because it makes them more neutralized, which I suppose is the ultimate purpose of the product. But, I don't know if this step is really necessary because I feel like a good coverage foundation has the same effect, if not better (because it actually covers the under eye circles) on it's own. With this product, it just kind of adds another stop and I'm not sure it's worth the extra time.
I've had the same results with using it to tone down blemishes, as well. It just adds another step in my foundation process, without strong enough results to really be deemed worth while.
So, although I don't feel it's a bad product, it's not really a "must have" item, either. I may play around with it some more and see if I can learn how to better use it.

I love this product. I've repurchased this a few times now. I apply it with my EDM flat top brush. The reason why I love this stuff is because it lets me fake having nice clear skin and it looks really natural. I have been complimented a countless number of times on how great my skin looks when I have this on (and believe me, I have really bad skin.).
It works wonderfully as a colour corrector for me and I use it to reduce the redness on my face. It doesn't hide my acne scars /spots as well as I would like but that's not what I use this for (I use a diff. concealer for spots). I use this to even my skin tone and it works wonderfully. I've tried a lot of different shades from different products for my skin and this is the only one that sort of highlights my face and adds a 'glow'.
I also love using it as a concealer for my under-eye area and to highlight the area under my brows. I apply it with my ring finger. It makes me look a lot more refreshed and 'awake'.
The only con is that because it's a powder, sometimes it gets a bit cakey on my face if I'm not careful and use too much. Having said that, all of the other foundations/ bb creams I've used cake a lot more.

This is great for neutralizing the color of dark under eye circles! I just brush on a tiny bit with my MAC 217 brush and the discolorations are practically gone :) I've been SO impressed with everything I've gotten from this brand. I got this in a tiny sample container and it has lasted me nearly a year despite daily use. I will definitely repurchase.

put price as 1 because i RIS and don't know how much it cost.
this was so-so for me.it really covers dark circles well but settles into my lovely undereye lines.i don't find it very effective at concealing blemishes or redness.it's great when applied with a light hand to even out/brighten skintone on my eyelids if i'm not wearing shadow.right now i'm just using it to set my WnW coverstick,which i don't find very effective.the two together are better than nothing.on the positive side,i really do like the yellow tone,it's surprisingly wearable on my skin,though i'm very yellow-olive to start with.cool toned girls might have a problem.
overall it's not bad but i wouldn't buy it.it *was* a really fun swap extra to play with,though!

This just doesn't work for me. It just looks like I dabbed a bright yellow dot on whatever raging zit I'm trying to cover. It doesn't blend well and it's bright yellow. I find BE bisque works much better for me. Oh well, at least the EM is super cheap!

This is one of my favorite EDM products. I use it to conceal redness and blemishes, it has good, buildable coverage. It looks a lot more natural than the green concealer, and is more forgiving if you apply too much. If it's used sparingly, it can be used on its own, but I usually use my regular EDM foundation after. Sometimes I apply too much and it wipes out so much red in my face that I look ghostly! Haha, so this would definitely be better for pale skin tones. It's a really really light powder.

RIS BN in a swap and I love this! It covers my circles better than anything else I've tried.I apply a liquid concealer first then set with this and the circles have gone!!! Perfect!

I think this is amazing! It covers my dark circles really well and brightens up my under-eyes. I put it over pimples too and it seems to cover them pretty well for me. I would definitely buy this again if I ever run out. You definitely get your money's worth when you buy this, it seems like it could last forever.

I was skeptical that yellow would conceal redness but OH MY GOODNESS! It is amazing. Covers redness better than mint (a 50/50 mix of the two seems to work well) and eliminates the hassle of a green cast.
*Other EDM users prefer Pick Me Up Pink as the ultimate redness concealer. Whichever one works best for you will probably depend on your undertone. Since I am olive toned, Sunlight works best.
I've applied Sunlight four ways:
spot concealed and then lightly buffed out before applying foundation,
mixed foundation and sunlight evenly in lid then buffed on together,
lightly dusted on with EcoTools kabuki (an extremely fluffy, non-dense brush) after foundation,
buffed on by itself
Each method worked fine and provided good results.
I like mixing my base w/ concealer and applying together because I end up using less to achieve the same results.
For example: if the final face result is a mix of several things applied individually, it's easy to over apply at each individual step because you're trying to perfectly cover at each step. Evenly mixing the ingredients first in a lid or bowl and then applying uses less product overall and gives me the desired coverage=achieving a more natural look and saving money.
Tweak the ratio to find what works for you.

I think powder concealer is too cakey around the eye area due to the lack of oil glands. I like using powder foundation from this brand and liquid concealer around the eye. This does not work well for me even though I like a lot of products from Everyday Minerals overall.

I think of all the EM concealers I've used, this one is my favorite. I'm still using the sample I received of this, but will repurchase when I run out. This is a yellowish white, which is great for both neutralizing redness of pimples and for covering up the purple in undereye circles and acne scars. I really love this because it buffs out really well so you don't see a white cast on your face and it's also light. You only need to use a tiny bit to cover up any imperfections. I haven't tried this yet in the pearl formulation but will sample that in my next buy.

I wear Sunlight Color Corrector under my EDM Buff Fairly light neutral foundation. I lightly apply Sunlight Color Corrector all over my face with my Sonia Kashuk Highlighting Brush. Then I go back over any areas that may need a little more coverage. It helps to even out my skintone, conceals redness and blemishes. This product works better for me than the Mint Color Corrector.

Doesn't do a thing for me, unless looking crepe-y means doing something. Using it under my eyes it's a horrible mess, shows every little crease and wrinkle...ones that you don't normally even see! It finds them. YUCK. Doesn't work well as a blemish cover up either, IMO. Hmmm I can use it for an eyeshadow base though, so it won't go to waste..but as a concealer? no go!
Age: 19-24 Skin: Very Oily, Fair-Medium Hair: Black Eyes: Black
I got a sample size of this but since I use very little each time, I think it can last me a very long time. I use this as a setting powder together with aussie perk up concealer after my cream concealer for my undereyes- yes my eye circles are pretty bad. This combo works wonders and erase my circles and make me look very awake.
This is basically yellow powder and yellow is suppose to help with dark circles. I don't have problems with it being chalky or looking too light/yellow because I'm asian so I typically have yellow undertones.

I have to say, this concealer does not work for my dark circle. Chalky on my wrinkle, make my look horrible.

If your bags have any yellow in them, this probably isn't your best bet. Made my olive skin look sickly under the eyes. Sigh. It was worth a shot, at least.
I might try adding some of my lavender to this to see what I come up with.
It's significantly lighter than abbott's blend though, so if you tried that and it didn't work due to darkness, this might be option #2. Hope that's helpful for someone out there.
