This is sort of going to be a Batman and Robin post aka Dynamic Duo. Thanks to the local Max Factor team who invited me to the press launch for their newest product! I’ll be introducing Max Factor’s newest foundation out on the market, which is their Ageless Elixir foundation while somewhat showing how I apply it using my Etude House Babydoll Puff Blending Sponge.
HOW MAX FACTOR AGE ELIXIR WORKS
“The foundation claims to help even your skin tone by not clogging in fine lines and wrinkles, reflecting light to reduce the contrast of uneven skin tone, optically blurring the edges of fine lines and wrinkles while filling and smoothing the skin surface. While the added serum with SPF 15* is said to help protect the skin in order to achieve beautiful looking skin through its moisturising skincare formula, anti-oxidant package, and SPF 15 to ensure daily protection from UV radiation plus help prevent further age spots.”
Max Factor is one of my top preferred drugstore brands available locally and the brand itself been around as far back as the day my older, late grandmother most likely learned how to walk in 1909. Think of their original Pan Stik or Pan Cake makeup, which was the way of the base in Marilyn’s day. Max Factor has been around for over 100 years and back then was eventually acquired by Revlon in 1986 then sold to Procter & Gamble in 1991.

Mentioned in the 90s up ’til today as the “Make-Up of Makeup Artists” I was successfully convinced as a teen when I first started reading magazines that Hollywood makeup artists used mostly Max Factor products on set, oh the wonders of advertising, it was quite true, but more so in the era of vintage beauty at the time. Today Max Factor is one of the best drugstore brands in the consumer market. With Max Factor’s NEW Ageless Elixir Foundation they swing the hefty 2-in-1 product bat at the ladies whose faces crave not only coverage but a helpful helping of integrated skincare.
The serum component of this foundation contains Glycerin, Niacinamide, N-Acetyl Glucosamine and an anti-oxidant package of Vitamin E, Niacinamide, Allantoin, Panthenol, and Green Tea. Ageless Elixir also carries an SPF 15 mark for mild UV protection. I found this official Max Factor Ageless Elixir diagram online as part of the global press release late last year, it was a PDF that I simply found by searching on Google.
