This finishing dust really doesn't do anything for me. It's a very fine powder that easily turns into a cloud of dust if you're not careful. It doesn't control shine for very long and it doesn't minimize my pores. I was hoping it would do those things plus "set" my makeup but it really doesn't do that either. Of course I do live in the south so I'm not sure if anything really helps keeping your makeup intact down here. :) I think I will try another finishing powder because I really do love EDM!
Love this blush! It reminds me of Best Friends. I have a mixture of Sunkissed Fair/Medium Beige Neutral skin tone during the summer and it looks great with it. Not too rosy but a nice flushed color.

This thing is HUGE compared to other EDM containers. Once I get my perfect mixture together, I'll up it in the jar but for now, the lid is perfect to apply my foundation.
I also have rosacea and have a problem covering up the red on my face. I received this in a sample kit and it is awesome! It really covers up the red but you do have to blend it a bit more than regular concealers. If you don't, it can make areas of your face look lighter even after you apply your mineral foundation. My husband noticed this on me yesterday but I quickly fixed it with a touch up. I have to admit, I was skeptical because of the GREEN color but it really works!
I received my sample kit with Best Friends blush in it yesterday... I can already say that I LOVE this color! It is a bit more purple in the jar than I expected but it turns into a lovely mauve/rosy shade on the cheeks... very natural.
Didn't like this color at all! It ended up looking too brownish/orange for my skin... not good. A little to dark for me too. I still love this mineral makeup and will keep looking for my ideal color.

Ordered a sample kit with Fair Medium (cool) and Sunkissed Fair (beige)... loved them both! Fair Medium turned out a little darker than Sunkissed but it will be good once a have a light tan. Sunkissed is great for me now. I love it! I love the Intensive formula too - covers nicely without looking cakey. I tried the Semi Matte but it was a little to shiny for me.
Powder -Everyday Minerals - foundation semi-matte formula

I tried this formula in Light Olive with my sample kit. The color was a little too dark and looked a bit yellow on me. This formula is just a bit to shiny for my skin also. I do have some dry patches but it just made the normal areas of my face look oily. I liked the coverage though.... **Now that I have a light tan on my face, the Light Olive color suits my skin tone very well. Still not liking the semi-matte though.

This brush is worth much more than the $10 I paid! It applies my EM makeup wonderfully without shedding.

I had never heard of EM until I read about it on MUA. I LOVE the free sample! So far I've ordered two with pretty good results. I've always wanted to try mineral makeup and now I've found a company that I will stay with for a long time!
Concealers -Everyday Minerals - Multi-tasking Concealer

This concealer was just "okay". I have rosasea on my cheeks and moderate dark circles under my eyes. It didn't cover either of those areas well enough for me to buy again. Back to the liquid/stick concealer! Wish it could have worked....
