This stuff rocks so hard its not even funny!! I have psoriasis, which if you've never seen is like the most unattractive patchy flakey red skin, in differnt spots from tiny as a zit to the whole back of my arm. i know i know, im suicidal for sure. Not s much anymore, because of this. I have been struggling with dry reddish patches on my face for months. When I use this on the red spots they are barely visible. Without it i look like sh*t. Also i got a small jar and it will last forever. love love love this.

I love this product. I cannot tell you how long I've been waiting for something this great, my face has always been permanently flushed, since I was a kid. I have always had to pile on foundation to cover it up, so I looked fake, and by the end of the day it had all worn off anyway, leaving me looking sunburnt. However, this works just as promised! At first, it admittedly makes me look a little grey. But when I buff on sandy fair semi-matte over it, I magically turn slightly glowy and completely flawless. It also really tones down blemishes, which helps me quite a lot. My love for this knows no bounds, so if anyone struggles with facial redness or blemishes, GET THIS. One other use for this, I've found if I use too much it doesn't make me look green, but it does make me look generally lighter than I am. I'm really pale, and I actually like my stark whiteness, but if your tan is fading and your summer foundation is suddenly too dark or something along those lines, a little mint under the foundation or even dusted over it with a fluffy brush might tone down the darkness for you. I just love it:)

Completely agree that this takes some getting used to. Agree that concealer brush is too stiff for this product (you'll end up applying way too much). For individual blemishes, I use a bobbi brown mini eye concealer brush and dab it on and blend before applying foundation. Then I apply foundation, and if anything is still visible, I go over it either with the mint concealer and then intensive medium, or just intensive medium (depending on how much is still apparent). To conceal redness around my nose (so my beautiful lumiere blushes aren't competing with my retinoid-flushed skin), I swirl the soft twirly end of the dual-sided bobbi brown concealer brush and tap of the excess and build the coverage. Because it can look bluish/ashy. I have golden/olive skin (wear mix of golden medium and golden light in EM). My husband complemented me several times today and this is what I did different... thus prompting a positive review! Would repurchase, although I'm still on the sample size.

So this takes some practice. I found it made me look pale and blue (not green) if it wasn't used properly. I found it helped me to stop using the brush and use my finger for a bit more control. But once I did, rosacea gone! Well almost. But compared to the green tinted foundations I've tried, this was much better. I like it, just difficult to use. Thus the four stars instead of five.

I didn't like this at first, but I gave it another try. You can't put too much on or it will be hard to blend in! I use an eyeshadow brush instead of the concealer brush because it softens the color and doesn't apply TOO much on my skin at one time. I take just a little of this and dab it on, and rub it in my skin. I also use MINT concealer around my nose, my mouth, and above my eyes to cover redness. I then use my "Sunkissed Fair" matte foundation and buff it in, blending it very well. It brightens up my face and I think it even brightens up my foundation, which I needed anyway. I will try some other tips to make this work even better...I think some lady a couple comments below me made some really great suggestions. Anyways, I will continue to buy this. I used to use the "Sunlight" concealer around my nose and such, but it was way too yellow. The "mint" looked much better on my skin.

I have been using this for about 2 weeks. I hated it the first time I tried it, but I decided to try again when I got a large zit. I have normal to dry acne prone skin. I have dark discolorations from acne. I use a concealer brush to dab it onto the zits/discolorations and then I blend it in, especially right around it. Then I pat on medium intensive concealer on it (patting it on worked better than blending it in by twirling for me). It helps my concealer look less obvious. It won't necessarily work for ALL your blemishes, but it has been a great help. Some days I mix it with my foundation before dusting on. The sample jar was very generous, but I decided to order a large one anyway because I really like it! It's not a product that everyone will love, so definitely try it first. I wear Buttered Tan. You can't see any sign of the mint once I put on my foundation.
Update: I found that this works great dusted all over before my foundation. Also, instead of putting mint directly on my blemishes, I load my concealer brush with mint, and then with the medium intensive concealer. It doesn't come out as ashy that way and it tones down the pink in the concealer for me.

This product is a good one. I have a sample size and I use my BE Baby Buki brush and it works out perfectly. I can spot conceal all the red spots all over my face, and then blend it all in with a larger brush. I personally have to use so much that I couldn't go without foundation over it though. With as much as I use to completely rid myself of redness my face looks pretty green, but it completely disappears under foundation.

This is a good idea to begin with: a pigmented minty green concealer to cover up redness. If only it wasn't such a pain to get right! Applied too heavily you end up looking, that's right, green! Applied too lightly it really doesn't make any difference. However, once you master this it can be quite useful. I use it at the sides of my nose to even out redness and occasionally lightly, very lightly, dust it all over my face before foundation to get a really even result. Nothing I take my time to use everyday though, it's just too hard to get right.

This is a great concealer, especially for people who may suffer from breakouts. I have fair skin so my cheeks tend to get very very red. I like to lightly brush this concealer over my cheeks to minimize some of the redness. I also suffer from the occasional breakout and this product definitely covers them. When I use this product to cover a blemish I use a very very tiny amount on the tip of my concealer brush and I only add more if I see redness. I also apply this concealer prior to putting on my foundation. I find that if you use too much of this product it will show through your foundation, that is why it is very important to use it sparingly. I hope this review helps!

I find that a very little of this goes a long way! When I'm looking particularly red, I dust this over my entire face, blend on my foundation and- Voila- no more red and I look presentable. If I just apply it to the area around broken capillaries, it's a little too green.

I really like this product. I have redness sort of along the sides of my jawline that this stuff completely covers, and without making me look like the wicked witch. It is very natural looking. I just applied it lightly with a big blush type brush and it neutralized the red immediately. Very awesome stuff.

Would not go out in public with out using this on my red nose and acne scars. A little goes a very long way! My skin has never looked better since using Everyday Minerals.

This stuff is AMAZING! You would never think that the green wouldn't show up on your face, but it doesn't. It gets rid of all the redness, and if that's your only reason for foundation you could even go without foundation with this stuff. And it doesn't look like you are wearing anything, but the redness is gone. I only just got this in a sample kit and already I had to come rave about it.

Love this product. I have almost rosacea like redness across my cheeks and nose and it does a great job of covering it up. I will continue to buy this product over and over agin.

Never tried a green concealer before but pleasantly surprised.
For my daily application: Moisturize (though I'm thinking of switching to a Primer), Wait 5 minutes, Using a concealer brush apply 1 or 2 light layers of the green over blemishes plus around any other red areas e.g. the nose, blend each light layer a little with finger, buff on foundation (I was skeptical but it really does completely de-green-ifiy it), add a little sunlight mixed with winged butter to the original areas for true seamless coverage.
This seems like a lot of steps but it's becoming automatic for me to the point it's about 5 minutes in the morning and perfect coverage ALL day! (Though oily which I hope to combat when my Tinted & Summer Silk Dusts come.)
As a side note: I have noticed that by the end of the day my blemishes are still invisible from about 1 foot away but up close they seem to be drying up? Weird but awesome. With my old cream Alexis Vogel concealer, by the end of the day the blemishes were kind of shiny and would need to be repowdered to blend in again. This reverses that in a good way. Almost, dare I say it, like the concealer is treating the spots!

I finally figure out how to use this product. (picked up the idea from another discussion board) Mix a little of the mint w/ regular concealer to cover the red. This way, the green won't show up as grey, and the red on the face still covered. Just tried this morning and it's so easy than just dabbing the green and covering w/ foundation.
Updated!! Another way to use this is to mix with Silk Dust and use as primer! I usually just prime my T zones w/ mint+silk then dust on the foundation will get rid of the grey!! Perfect blend!
A sample jar will last forever!!

I absolutely adore this product. I have a very ruddy complexion, so it's a god-send. I do have some issues getting it applied well on my nose, but that's mostly due to my technique, I think, and not the product. The powder does show up as very green on my skin if I'm to use enough to actually cover all my redness, but as long as I put foundation over it there's no problem. I would definitely buy again, should I have to - which I doubt, since 6 grams of this stuff will likely last me a lifetime.

Great for covering up red blemishes and zits. Apply before your foundation and they are drastically reduced. It is very green, but the trick is in applying it correctly. Don't over apply, blend well, and make sure you are covering it with foundation. Its the green that makes it work so well!
I thankfully don't have to use this often, but when i do its a godsend.

This covers all my acne scars and blemishes. I'm amazed by its coverage! I have to be careful not to use too much of it, though; if I do, I'll end up having green streaks on my t-zone (that are easy enough to cover with foundation).

I got this as part of my free samples kit, and I love it: it's perfect for anyone with really ruddy cheeks! It does a great job of really subtly toning down the red without shouting GREEN at you like many green concealers do, I think b/c it's a powder. I need to cover it with foundation to make it look natural, but that's it.
However, this *really* doesn't last as long as I need it to :( I definitely need to try it with a primer (if I ever get myself a primer) because I love the effect it has, but I really depend on it if I want to be able to wear blush without layering foundation on and it just doesn't have enough staying power for me. I'd give it 3.5 lippies because of that.
