As you age, your skin does change and you will need to switch products to accommodate the changes. It’s no fun when what worked no longer does. The search begins for something new, something different.

I had stopped using powder for several years. One day, while looking at some photos taken with flash, I realized I looked shiny. Really shiny. I used to use pressed powder but it become too drying for my skin. So the search for a new powder began. I didn’t want a product to accent my fine lines or make my skin feel parched. I didn’t want a product that would feel heavy.

Max Factor ColorGenius Pressed PowderAlong comes Max Factor ColorGenius Pressed Powder. Max Factor’s new ColorGenius line had it’s debut at the Spring/Summer 2008 New York Fashion Week so, of course, I had to try it! Initially I used it alone because that is how I used to wear powder. It didn’t give me the coverage I wanted. The next application was over my foundation. I was happy with the results. It gave me a bit of a matte finish without being drying. ColorGenius Pressed Powder combines mineral ingredients that create polished complexions, not heavy, dry complexions.

Now I carry Max Factor ColorGenius Pressed Powder and it’s cute little brush in my purse. It’s the perfect anti-shine solution!
