Again, I am so sad that there is not an option to say "maybe" on "would you buy again?". I wanted to like this SO much. BE's bisque works wonders on me, and I was thinking this would be a close comparison. Well, unfortunately, I was sorely disappointed in this. I attempted to cover acne, redness, and even out my under eye area, and sadly, this did nothing special for any of the areas. I hate that I am in the minority on this. My complexion is usually a light, but in the summer, I am a tanner light-medium. Maybe that's why. Maybe it is not for lighter complexions, anyway, sorry to be the odd person out.

I purchased this with recommendations on the Everyday Minerals Forum and to be honest, I was skeptical but nonetheless I included this in my free sample kit instead of the Mint Concealer. Again, with the recommendations I sometimes mixed it with Pearl Beige and sometimes without and I LOVE this. I actually prefer this over the foundation I purchased from Everyday Minerals because I'm not sure if it's just me but my Golden Light Semi Matte foundation oxides a LOT during the day to the point where I'm much more yellow than I actually am. This doesn't oxide (or barely) and this doesn't get as cakey as my Golden Light Semi Matte foundation which I love. I think once I get a job, I'm going back for the full size :)

So, I purchased this concealer based mostly on the reviews here. Let me tell you, I was blown out of the water! I can't believe that this light pink powder actually toned down my "big time" redness, and evened out my complexion. It even smoothed out, or "blurred" an area where I had some blemishes that hadn't been concealed yet. I just used a little mineral concealer under my eyes, and I used just a touch of LG balance n brighten fair for a little more coverage. So I see now that this works really well as a primer as well! I stayed fresh and matte with PMUP on as I had no other primer on underneath this time. As for packaging, mine came with an option for a closed sifter attached to it...so that makes it much better than the older version! This powder is not chalky or glittery...but blends into your skin and seems to be really transforming. I would just say to try a sample if you question the full-size! If you have any issues with redness at all....they don't have to be severe, I would recommend this since it will last you a long time and it really is inexpensive for the amount of product you receive.

I have never used anthing pink in color as a primer before applying makeup until I got this product. I take a kabuki brush dip into the powder and then buff it all over my face. This powder somehow helps to not only even my complexion and take away any sallowness or ruddines to it, but it also provides my face with a subtle brightness to it as well.
I love this product and I am glad that I gave it try. As, a full sized container of this product will honestly last a long, long time due to your only having to use a small amount towards priming your face with it.

I absolutely love this as both a primer and a concealer. I have redness in my cheeks and around my nose, and the PMUP works fantastically to correct that. This is probably my HG makeup item.

EDIT - I used this a primer today and HOLY COW. Who knew a pale pink primer would make my skin look so smooth? It cancelled out redness and sallowness at the same time! I'm very fair, but it didn't show up pink at all, just kind of glowy.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Oily, Fair-Medium Hair: Brunette Eyes: Green
Wow. I use it as an undereye brightener, hides my sallow under eye tones, tones down redness and evens my complexion. I use a light dusting of this as a primer, and it lets my MMU set with a flawless finish. Doubles as a flawless cute pink blush for light skintones.
I never would have tried this aside from the glowing reviews and now here I am, glowing too. Will definitely repurchase.

Click "continued" for photos.
Finely milled, smooth application
When used as a finishing powder, it adds a soft-focus glow and makes your complexion look flawlessly even
Used with a heavier hand, can double as a blush, close in shade to Benefit Dandelion
Not really a con, but I'd be thrilled if they came out with a pressed version for the clumsy.
Not exactly a comparison pic of similar shades, just benchmarking it against some more well-known shades:

Seriously amazing! Really, really amazing! I'm really not sure how, or why this pink powder makes my skin look so flawless, all I know is that it works wonders. I have a very uneven skin tone and this seems to cancel all the redness out. I use this over my foundation and it really works like an airbrush over my skin. I use the EM foundation brush to apply (I paint it on but also work it into the skin). And as with all of the EM products I have tried, it is very gentle and has not caused any breakouts. The first time I used it my husband even noticed how clear and fresh my complexion looked! This is now a permanent part of my makeup routine! I don't know what I did without it!

Who would have thought pink could cancel out red? I was a bit skeptical but after reading all these wonderful MUA reviews I decided to add it to my Free Sample Kit (which is awesome!) and I'm glad I did! It really does get rid of the redness in my cheeks and helps diminish the dark circles underneath my eyes. It provides a nice canvas for my foundation, doesn't cake, and blends smoothly. Would I buy this product again? Yes, yes, yes!

This is such a versatile product I use this for concealing redness, as a primer and a highlighter. When I use it under my foundation it gives me that added glow to my face which is beautiful. It's great for concealing some redness on my cheeks but I have to put foundation over this everytime I use it because I'd look really funny with bright pink cheeks. I only have this in a sample size and I am most definitely buying this in a big size!

I added this to my 34 dollar kit because of all the good reviews here. I LOVE this, it is so amazing.
Firstly, I have a serious problem with all kinds of makeup dramatizing my pores and the texture of my skin (post acne). For example,I use the base of EM but only when mixed with moisturizer, otherwise it makes my skin looks just horrible. Pick Me Up Pink, for some reason, I can apply with a brush and blend, and it is okay. So I have been using it as a primer all over, then putting my EM liquid base on top.
Pick Me Up Pink gives my skin a beautiful healthy color, I look years younger, and just, well, better. Maybe like I have been exercising, or have been in the sun, not with a tan, just with that kind of glow. I have light/medium skin, with cool to neutral color (I use Multi-Tasking as my base). For a long time now I have been using blush to give my skin some color, but with this powder, I feel like it is not even necessry.
Seriously, this is a great product if it works with your skin color.

HG product! I use it to neutralize undereye darkness, tone down redness, conceal dark spots, and to brighten up my face. Its so amazing, and only gets more perfect when layered under foundation. I use Joppa Full Coverage foundation sparingly over it, and I look so natural and flawless. Sometimes I forget if I'm wearing makeup :D

This works amazingly well for me as an under-eye color corrector for bluish discoloration (my skin: very fair neutral-toned NC/NW15). PMUP is a warm/neutral light pink that just sort of melts into your skin. I use it sparingly, over liquid concealer or on its own.
Also works as a subtle blush or all-over face brightener, and it does even out a bit of redness, although as someone with rosacea I still need foundation over top. I find if I use this all over my face, I need to use a little on my neck as well so my neck is not a different color, especially in bright natural light.

This is great stuff. I have a tip for those of you who prefer a liquid concealer--I actually mix it with an organic/natural moisturizer (Lavera's Balancing Cream, in my case, but you can probably use just about anything) to create a creamy texture. It goes on really well this way. EDM makes versatile products and I love how we can play around with them to create what's best for us!

This is a wonderful primer. I actually use this on my nw20 skin as an all over color corrector. It evens out my skin tone and I do not have to use any other foundation, just some concealer on my under eye circles and bad blemishes.
I thought it would look bad, but it blends in invisible. Not chalky or anything.
Age: 25-29 Skin: Sensitive, Fair Hair: Other, Straight, Fine Eyes: Grey
On my fair skin this really does do wonders to perk it up and give me a subtle flush. I wish it wasn't quite so chalky but under an illuminating powder that doesn't matter.
Age: 18 & Under Skin: Acne-prone, Fair-Medium Hair: Blond Eyes: Green
This is like.. the best concealer i've ever tried! I use it on my whole face, because i've read somewhere that it works as a primer as well.. And that is true. It does.
If you have like, uhm, a red face, or red spots on your face (like acne-scars) this product will work wonderful!
Maybe you could even use it alone, without foundation, if you don't want to use to much foundation. I would rather use this one alone then just the loose foundation. That is how great it is.
It makes my skin look so much better. :D
I really recommend this one.
Age: 36-43 Skin: Combination Hair: Blond Eyes: Green
I've used this faithfully ever since it came out. It adds a youthful pink hue to my medium cool skin. I've started mixing it with Pick Me Up Pink Pearl - I take a large powder brush and lightly swipe it over my face - it adds a nice dewy glow. Will continue to buy this.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Combination, Fair-Medium Hair: Brunette, Straight, Medium Eyes: Brown
Works nicely for my undereye circles, withstands the heat of the sun and the club, and even reduces redness. YES the PINK reduces the red !!!!! Crazy !!
It looks light and really pink in the jar, but it really blended well with my skin tone. Also my eyelids tend to have really yellow and even brown undertones, so this balances the colour really nicely. But it doesn't last as long as I would want it to.
