Well the first I time put this on I noticed my redness completely disappeared... I also noticed the glitter but I am a fan of light glitter on my face... could also be used as an eye shadow... I suggest a new brush... I find the compact hard to open

Does it cover red? Yes. Does it have glitter? Yes. Price: $13.95 @ Rite Aid. Price Per Gram: $1.55. Price per ounce: $46.50. Honestly, I would give this product a try (@ a place that accepts cosmetics returns). If you need something to cover your redness then it may be able to help you. One warning however- it does contain glitter/sparkles for some reason. I found this kind of limits where you can use it on your face- especially if you contour (glitter defeats the purpose of the darker contour shade). This product is also on the more expensive side for a drugstore brand, if that matters to you. Overall, I wouldn't buy it again due to the glitter & price.

This works for my medium-reddish center of face (off sides from the nose). I use the brush it came with and swipe it lightly twice over the whole multi-color surface, over light foundation, under powder. I apply it lightly, only to the red zones.
Considering the other low reviews, maybe a light touch is best, over foundation.

I don't have to much redness on my face on a regular basis but I do some redness. This powder is amazing to my face! It practically makes the redness disappear and lightens my skin subtly. I'm asian, so the lightening is a plus. The brush that comes with it is okay, I only use it for travel. The powder lasts a lifetime. I use it over my mineral foundation to set it since the foundation alone doesnt work and there is still little redness showing. It is amazing for color correction and setting. I love this. I am so glad my friend showed this to me. Each individual color in this is sheer, the white i use sometimes for an eyebrow highlight and it beautiful. The other colors are so sheer they can create a soft glowing eye look so bonus. I love this and I am very surprised at the low reviews this has

I had some doubts about writing this review as I don't have rosacea & am not ideal to judge something designed for over-reddened skin. So I waited for a day when my skin was particularly red and flushed - and after my usual foundation and concealer routine, I applied this sparingly across the areas of redness (deliberately ignored the non-red areas just so that I could test its effectiveness of actual reddened skin) but found that - to my horror - a greenish tint was becoming visible after the 1st layer of powder...I tried doing it again and with the thinnest layer possible...this time there was no Wicked Witch of the West characterization to speak of, but the amount of powder was so minimal that it hardly counts. Nevertheless, I continuously tried different application methods for 3 weeks but found that no matter what, this was a strange, too-green powder that failed to do what it was meant to do.
I wonder if Physicians Formula even TESTED this out before unleashing it out into the cynical & highly demanding beauty market.

This powder is absolutely horrible! I hate it. It not only looks sickly green on the skin even with a light hand, it has glitter in it. Not shimmer, chunks of glitter. It made my pores look so huge and really did look green in any light if you put enough of it on to set your foundation. It also does not hide redness well at all. I am very fair and my nose and cheeks and chin are always red but no matter what I tried with this it just didn't help enough to count for anything let alone the green tint to my face that made me look like I had a disease.

I have issues with a red, oily t zone, and regular powders can control shine, but not the ruddiness. So I bought this in hopes of a miracle.
At first, I had no idea how to use it - the directions on the label are completely useless, as is the brush it comes with. On a side note, the packaging, as everyone else has said, is horrible. The brush is a joke that takes up unnecessary space, the plastic compact is chunky and not durable at all (the lid broke off after I dropped it from a short distance onto carpetted floor), and the mirror is badly placed - who wants to flip back and forth from the mirror to the product when they need to touch up quickly?
But anyway, I found that the best way to apply is to take a bit of the medium green with my finger (the least grey, and most matte shade) and pat it over any place shiny/red. It's immediately toned down and looks great. On many days, I can get away with going foundation free by using this powder instead.
However, the only color I use in this compact is the one shade, of which there are three patches. Once i use them up, the entire compact is useless to me. In spite of this, I would repurchase, because it's the only thing that keeps me from looking like a greasy tomato, especially in the summer.

Probably the worst product from this good company. If you use it lightly it is not enough unless you have very little redness. If you use too much it casts grey shadow on your complection. So do you want to be red or grey? I am not sure which one is worse. The staying power is zero. Not even worth a try!

I got this product because it was on sale and at the time I had some redness issues that I later sorted out. I found that this product did nothing to help correct my redness, in fact it wasn't even good as a setting powder. I don't even want to get into the joke that was the brush they included.

I recieved this as part as my Christmas present from my sister. (I had wanted to buy this before but was too cheap to:p)
I've used it a few times and I honestly just think that it's a waste of money. My $3 ELF powders have done a better job at making my skin look half decent!
It does get rid of shine but it does nothing to get rid of the redness on my nose and surrounding areas! Overall, I will not be repurchasing this product.

I have redness on my cheeks and this did not work. On the packaging it advises you to have a light hand with it and not to use a lot. So I definitely followed the advice and did not use a lot. And it made no difference to the redness at all. I kept just putting a little more on my brush (not the one that comes with it, that one sucks) to layer onto the already-covered red areas but it did not cancel out the redness. So I used more and it just made my face look green. This really does not work to cancel out redness at all and no matter how much or little you use, it does not give the desired effect. Either your face looks the same, or it looks green. I even tested it on a red area on my neck and I kept just lighting applying it to the area and it just did nothing. It's very expensive and a waste of money because I can't think of any way I could possibly use this... It's useless for redness...

This powder makes you look super green, like a comic book character. Yes, I used as little as humanly possible, and yes, I always ended up looking green. Someone else mentioned that it doesn't work well in combination with other mineral makeup -- maybe that's my issue. But it is green, so green. I use a kabuki brush, make a quick, light swipe over the powder, tap it all off the brush, and it is still too green. And my face is still red!

Packaging is horrible-- the brush that comes with it is useless (I tossed it right away), it's heavy, and the palette broke off at the hinge from the first day of usage!! Like what everyone else says, this will make you look sickly green/flakey. Will not buy again.

This does a good job toning down all over redness if you use a light hand. I bought this years ago when I felt like my face needed more color correcting for red pimples, but now that my skin has changed I probably wouldn't buy it again just because I don't feel like I need this type of product anymore. The packaging needs to not include the brush and be a little lighter. Other than that it's a decent buy.

Maybe I'm too pale because this made me look green even though I applied lightly.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Combination, Fair Hair: Black Eyes: Black
It did work for my rosacea face. but I had to swipe it lightly. Little coverage. I hated that it made me look ill

I have major problems with blushing and turning red easily, so I have searched high and low for products that will help combat this. I came across this product at the drugstore and it was pretty pricey, but I bought it on a whim and I'm quite impressed. It does a fine job covering redness, although it doesn't last very long. I must add that less is more, because the first time I used it, I came out with a very odd sickly looking green tinge. Not attractive.
I alternate (sometimes combine) this with Benefit's Bluffdust, and while my redness problems aren't completely eradicated, they do a fine job with concealing it!

I really wish there was a maybe option for the purchasing again question. The packaging wastes a lot of space because the brush it comes with is useless. I do, however, like the product well enough. I am super pasty white and have to use powder foundation (3/4 rice powder with 1/4 physicians formula transleucent) and this helps my powder even out. It also really does cover my redness well. It contains sparkle, though, which looks bad with my pores and oily skin. This powder realy does mattify, though, so I suppose that isn't a big problem. I layer it on, alternating layers of colored foundtion and powder back and forth. Cost-wise it is slightly mrore expensive per oz than clinique's redness correcting powder, which I think might be better for my skintone. It isn't as cheap as you think it is.

I had a laser treatment done to my face a few weeks back and my complexion is on the mend, but still quite red. This powder tones down the peek-a-boo redness quite well and allows me to use my regular foundation. Please be aware, it doesn't totally cancel out redness, but I look glowy rather than sunburned.

This product provides great coverage and is so versatile! I love that there are different shades of green, which is helpful for me because sometimes I just get slight redness but other times a zit is bright red! The powder is great if you use a pressed powder foundation or a liquid - it sets and stays on either one. I would so buy this again!
The only thing it doesn't blend with well is mineral makeup - I have BareMinerals and I cannot use this concealer with that (even though I use the big-ass concealer brush from BareMinerals to apply this). The mineral powder just doesn't cling to this concealer - I suppose you would use a different concealer, maybe a green concealer stick or something creamier when using mineral makeup.
My second, and only other qualm with this product is that some of the pigments are shimmery. Shimmery? Why would they ever make concealer like that? I don't know. But it is such a small amount that it doesn't really matter - and regardless you have to cover it up with foundation and maybe a skin-colored concealer too, depending on what you're trying to cover.
