I haven't actually used any Glidden for years, but I thought the color change trick was just for the primers. Sounds like you need to top coat it with something.:)

Jschaben, Valspar & Glidden make ceiling paints that turn from pink/purple to white. I'm guessing here, but, I would say the moisture from the shower is reactivating the pink/purple colorant in the paint. I would recoat with a paint that doesn't have the pink colorant.

Just quite taking showers for about a month, it will then have time to dry properly:yes::laughing:

You really should have something a bit more moisture resistant than a super flat ceiling paint above a shower.
This WILL fail, eventually.

I still like Chris's idea. No showers for a month. The pink indicator in $9 gallon flat ceiling paint is bound to disappear.

Seriously?

Visit a real paint store. Honest to God, I have never painted over one of those indicator ceiling paints---total consumer gimmicks right up there with primer and paint in one.

That was my thinking. I used semi gloss on my recent bathroom build.

SD, I'm with you on this one. Had a customer this summer insist on me using the Valspar ceiling paint they purchased with the PURPLE tint in it that is supposed to allow you to see where you have painted. Long story short, what a freaking mess! It was 95 degrees outside so this stuff dried almost instantly rendering the purple tint useless. Had to keep going over & over spots that I missed......ugh. Never again.
