I have block paving on my driveway, it's about 10 years old and was originally brindle colour, over the years it's lost its colour and is very dull.
Is there a paint I can use on it that does not make it look like a gloss or matt painted garage floor, am after a paint that will change the colour but still keeps the new block look.

no paint that will look good. try pressure washing a patch and applying a wet look block paving sealer on a small patch, might deepen the colour you already have

If you were prepared to experiment, you could try mixing cement, SBR and cement dye together and applying that
