Has anyone noticed the pink shimmer?
I was looking at these powders at Sephora the other day and swatched my shade, medium dark, on the back of my hand and noticed a slight pink sheen. It's very slight but it was enough to put me off the powder, as my only complaint for the otherwise flawless Naked Skin Liquid Foundation is that it's just not yellow enough for my skin. It shows up too pink, especially against my decollate, so any more pink tint added to the mix will make the situation worse.
I'm curious to know if anyone's noticed the pink sheen and how it affects how the powder performs in terms of making the skin look flawless. I know that pink light can diffuse and blur imperfections, so that's maybe why the pink sheen is there. I just think it's interesting that there has been no review so far that covers this pink sheen.
Or maybe I'm just going insane and there is just no pink sheen at all?

on Naked Skin Ultra Definition Pressed Finishing Powder
I bought the medium dark and LOVED it. I don't notice the pink sheen in the compact or on my face. Perhaps you're right and there is a little bit added to help with blurring imperfections. But the undertone itself is more yellow.
I bought this powder for my 20 year old daughter who is a bit fairer than me. My skin has a mild olive/sallow tone without makeup. She does not notice a pink sheen to this powder. I have also tried it and did not notice it, either. I think it's a pretty good powder and I normally use Chanel. It gives the skin almost an airbrushed feel. Also wanted to let you know I bought her the light-medium color and it works well with both of our skin tones. Best wishes!

I haven't noticed a pink undertone, though I am very pale with a more pink undertone for my skin than any another color. Mine appears to be very much a foundation color. It's possible that if you have a more yellow undertone that there could be a pink shimmer that some of us aren't noticing...I believe you can return it if it's not satisfactory for store credit/online credit though I am not positive.
