This is great for neutralizing my ruddy complexion. I mix the tiniest amount in with my foundation and it's good for all-day coverage.

I have been using this concealer for almost half a year and I love this stuff. I got this along with the free sample kit and I haven't even used up half of it...so yeah it lasts long also.
I just apply this on my blemishes and anywhere else I need coverage on and it works great. Although you can't put as much or else it'd turn gray on you. Overall I wear this alone since I don't own a foundation and I love this and will be repurchasing this again.

The first time I tried this I must have applied too much because there were light patches underneath my foundation where I put this but now that I've had it for 2 weeks I learnt how to use it properly and it's made such a difference. My blemishes are quite red when I get them and this really does neutralise the colour. Being mineral has really helped my skin as well because in the past concealers have made my spots worse whilst this covers it up and actually seems to help it heal. I wouldn't purchase this again because it's not a HG and I want to try other products.

This is my favorite concealer!! At first I thought it would leave big green patches on my face but I was wrong. It works wonders covering red spots, pimples, etc. If you have redness you need to try this!

The mint concealer does an excellent job of combatting my red pimples. I apply concealer over the mint powder. I still need to master how to apply though b/c sometimes if I apply too much, it leaves a noticeable green sheen.

Wow, this stuff is remarkable. I've been using EM for over a year, but just recently ordered a sample of the mint. I was afraid to try it, I tried a green concealer once a long, long time ago, and it just made me look green. But this EM stuff is completely different. I haven't really tried it applied directly to blemishes, but I lightly brush it over my cheeks with the long handled kabuki in between 2 layers of foundation, and I swear it looks like I'm just brushing the redness off my face, not adding any weird green color. I will absolutely buy a full size when this sample runs out.

After reading the revies and seeinf before and after pics on a blog that I freqeunt, I chose this corrector in my mini custom kit and am loving it so much that I order a bigger one. My cheeks are really red and 2 fine layers of the mint corrector softens the redness and a layer of MMU, makes the redness dissappear! Will def repurchase over and over again

Although I´m not impressed with the coverage on my often red nose, I have found this to work quite nicely to blend my custom foundation shade with EMs olive light in semi matte. Will repurchase.

Love this stuff! I got it in my free sample kit a while back, but liked it so much I ordered a bigger size. I have slight rosacea on my cheeks (So slight I'm not sure if it's rosacea, but my cheeks are pretty red) and when I put this on, it totally neutralizes the color. I haven't heard of mixing it with concealer and/or foundation to avoid a Frankenstein-pale look, but I'm just careful to not overdo it and it's been fine for me. Would definitely repurchase.

I think Mint is generally recommendable for anyone who wants to neutralize skin redness and has the patience to make it work. It did the job effectively but I had to be careful in order to not overdo it and leave myself with whitish/green patches.
This is also good as a tint for lightening and dulling down red/orange tones in mineral makeup. Backstory - I've been using skin care products to fade melasma and in the process my skin has lightened. Before I was using Olive Fair and it matched but now I'm paler and this shade was looking too dark and a bit orangey on me. On a whim I mixed the Olive Fair with some of the Mint and the shade lightened and became less 'colorful' - and it matches perfectly now. :)

this is a very good concealer. it neutralizes my red (and sometimes very red) skin. i've also tried what some other MUAs have suggested, putting in some multi-task concealer into the mix and applying them on so it wouldn't look as chalky. i use this everyday on my irritated, sensitive, eczema, and acne prone skin and it makes my skin look "normal".

This stuff is awesome! I have very white Scandinavian skin with red Irish undertones and have tried several green products to tame the red mask on my face. (Murad green redness concealing lotion with spf 30 is great as well).
To apply, I dab a kabuki brush directly into the loose minerals and then dab and swirl the brush slightly on the reddest areas of my face (nose, chin, cheeks). I apply this after silk dust but before my concealer (intensive fair) and foundation (cool fair).
The result? I can finally wear blush without my red cheeks showing through!

I got this as a sample a couple of weeks ago and used it. It did not cover as much but as I played around with the technique, this stuff is amazing. I discovered that if you mix it with concealer and buff it on before the foundation it covers quite well. Amazing stuff!
EDIT: Staying power is not that great. 1 lippie off.

I just got my sample kit today and I have to say, this stuff is amazing. I have never ever used a green concealer that worked this well! It doesn't cover much, but the redness is GONE. Completely GONE. It's crazy. I love this stuff. I will be buying more.

Who would have thought that something green would make your redness go away? I sure didn't but thought i would give this a try in a sample kit that I bought. Like other people have said, you can't use a ton of this at a time b/c you'll turn out looking like a green monster. I mainly use this on my cheeks since they get red sometimes and I use it on my occasional blemish. I covers/conceals very well. I've been using the sample jar for a month now and I still have about 3/4 of the jar left. When I run out, I will re order for sure!

This concealer is great at masking redness, but I agree with other posters that it's a bit hard to get it to go on right and blend well. I'm still working on my technique; I'll update when I have it down!
Age: 25-29 Skin: Acne-prone, Fair Hair: Black Eyes: Brown
This product is brilliant at neutralizing ruddiness and post-acne red marks. It doesn't *cover*, per se, so I still need another concealer for larger blemishes. As many others have said, a little bit goes a loooong way, and you have to blend, blend, blend if you don't want to end up with a weird greenish cast to your finished face. (I once made the mistake of applying this product right after blowdrying my hair upside-down, while my face was still flushed from the heat and all the blood rushing to my head, and I looked like an alien.) Also, I have fallen asleep in my makeup (something I never, ever do!), and I was sure that my already broken-out skin would respond with a new crop of nasty zits, but I was wrong--it didn't react at all. Good stuff, a small jar will last forever, and it's dirt cheap!

I just got a sample of this in the free sample kit a few weeks ago and I love it. I don't have much acne but I do have red cheeks and a red nose! I generally apply a light layer of foundation, then, using my kabuki brush (I'm using the Essence of Beauty kabuki, but thinking of buying EDM'S), take a VERY VERY SMALL amount and buff it over my cheeks. For the nose I use Essence of Beauty's Face Blender brush, which is basically just a small flat-top brush, and do the same. I really use basically no product at all but it neutralizes the red wonderfully, and any ashiness left by the green vanishes under another layer of foundation. It really makes my face look a lot more even-toned. But I would agree with others-- use a very light hand! A little goes a long way, and I think the sample jar alone will last me forever!

DON'T use this product STRAIGHT-UP! I mix mine 50/50 with multi-tasking concealer.
The coverage is awesome and you don't look like Frankenstein. Covers redness and any other skin discolorations.
I apply my mix with the new flat-top EDM brush underneath my mu.

This works really well if you use a light hand and are very careful to get everything. I know this because the first time I tried it everyone was looking at me--not in a good way either--so I popped into the bathroom to check myself out in the mirror and my nose and chin were this really pale neutral color, while my cheeks etc were red--the inverse of normal.
Suffice to say: check yourself out in NATURAL LIGHT before going out.
