I have the same problem with UD Naked Skin products. Both the foundation and the concealer. Everyone in Sephora says it gives me a "velvet" matte finish but to my eye and my husbands eye it looks chalky as hell! I'm dry skin and we have very close skin tones. I'm just a bit cooler and darker. The coverage of both was nice but the finish was just chalk city. I felt like it was the 80's all over again!
LOL! Yeah, the finish must be it, because I normally don't have too many problems with slightly pink products.
You got rid of Candy Yum-Yum! I should probably do the same, but I really enjoy it on the three days per year that I wear it, so...
I really had to push myself to do it, but I knew it was necessary. How often do I really wear it, after all?
