Looking for a way to fight the signs of aging just by wearing makeup? Later this month, Peter Thomas Roth will launch a pressed powder ($35) in its popular Un-Wrinkle range. Inside the shiny black compact is a sheer powder that contains a synthetic ingredient called SYN-AKE, which is also in some of Gwyneth Paltrow's favorite skin care. The ingredient acts as a muscle relaxer, similar to the paralyzing effects of snake venom. It also contains peptides and neuropeptides, two antiaging powerhouse ingredients.
The texture is extremely silky and smooth, and when it's on, you can barely feel it (which I love). Something worthy of mention is that the powder claims to be translucent, but I see a slight tint and a definite luminosity when I wear it.
The powder has a bit of product placement coming up. If you're planning on seeing the movie Get Smart (which comes out on June 20, as does the powder), look for a glimpse of Agent 99 (aka Anne Hathaway) holding Un-Wrinkle Pressed Powder on the big screen.
