best handbag touch up powder with some coverage?

I bought a Chanel pressed powder, but the coverage is too light. I need something to correct pinkness in the middle of a night out.

Any recommendations please?

I have a yellow powder from Benefit, but it's loose. But the yellow real works against pinkness, so I'd see if a yellow pressed powder exists. Or failing that, try the loose stuff - you might not need the coverage.

Just had a little google, and my one doesn't seem to exist. But Clinique, amongst others, do a yellow pressed powder.

yellow eh? I thought it was green for pink?? or is it purple? confused I'll have a look though thank you!

I used to have a Bourjois retractable brush thing that had powder in the handle, which was perfect. It's been discontinued for years though.

Maxfactor FaceFinity is a lovely little gold compact with pressed powder in that has a bit of coverage, I think it's actually marketed as a foundation in itself but I use it as a setting powder sometimes for liquid foundation. The one I have is pinky but they might do more yellowy ones maybe?

brill, thanks! And an easily accessible option too.

Try a concealer instead to correct pinkness, especially if it's limited to a specific area. Bobbi brown does a great one for using on the go, called Face Touch Up Stick.

thanks violet. I'm looking something for when, in the middle of a night out, some of my makeup has slid off my face, usually exposing pink nose and cheeks IYSWIM. Would the BB product be suitable for this do you think?

Max factor creme puff compact is great. It's supposed to be an all in one so it has coverage but it feels like a regular powder.
