As of 2014, Max Factor Pan-Cake makeup is available through private sellers on retail websites such as Amazon and eBay. It is also available through international vendors that ship worldwide. The entire Max Factor product line, owned by Procter & Gamble, was discontinued in the United States in 2010.
Due to high demand for the discontinued Pan-Cake makeup, prices for the product currently range from $20 to over $80, depending on the seller. Max Factor products, including Pan-Stik makeup, are available exclusively through Drugstore.com.
Initially developed for use in the film industry, Pan-Cake makeup was released for public sale in 1937 and became an almost instant success. Pan-Cake makeup, which is applied with a moistened sponge, is an extremely effective cosmetic tool for creating flawless, matte-finished skin.
