Pink because If you get a really faint line on a blue test it's hard to distinguish from a line or an evap.

Pink, they have less evap lines than blue ones.

Only ever used pink due to the higher incidence of evap lines with blue.

my test was positive almost immediately, the test line showed first followed by the control line, just to be on the safe side ill go pick up a first response in a few

If it showed that fast you're probably fine. My first test was a blue dye test, and it showed basically instantly for me. I retested with a pink, only  because my friend brought me over 2 more a pink and  another blue with the reasoning "3 positives, go to the doctor. you aren't getting three false positives if they all show up positive."

If you read it within the time frame it says on the box, you should be fine. Personally, I prefer pink because the blue has a tendency to have an evaporation line after the allotted time, and a lot of women think it's positive when it's not. So basically, don't pee on it and then keep digging it out of the trash to see if it turned lol.

If it showed up that fast, it's likely a true positive. The concern with evaps on blue dyes and faint positives would be the ones that take a while to show up.
