        Comments about Mally Beauty Face Defender BB Cream Foundation:

        After struggling to find a foundation that covered my acne and didn't make me oily, I finally decided to switch over to a prestige brand of makeup, and after the girl at Ulta tried 4 different oil free foundations, we came across this one recommended by another employee who said she swears by it. And I am so thankful! It's easy to use (I put it in with my fingers even) and covers everything I need. It feels so lightweight, and even makes my pores look smaller, it has a slight matte finish which I love. I get so many compliments on my skin now.

          Comments about Mally Beauty Face Defender BB Cream Foundation:

          I tried using BareMinerals complextion rescue but I didn't like the thick heavy feel. It also took a lot time to apply so I didn't find it great for everyday use. I went into Ulta asking for something light and natural-looking and was introduced to this product. I love the results! It's light and easy to apply with the natural-looking finish. It doesn't take much time to apply and blend. It even has SPF and a bit of a shimmer. Every time I use this BB Cream I get comments on how great my skin looks!

            Comments about Mally Beauty Face Defender BB Cream Foundation:

            I was so used to using Mac or benefit for foundation. I haven't completely explored different foundations because I'm afraid of poor results but this BB cream is life. I truly love it. It's perfect for the days I'm not feeling a heavier foundation. It's natural looking and I personally love the slight glitter look it gives. Me being an African American woman, it's hard finding makeup that fits perfectly. I'd suggest this to those brown skin beauties looking to try something new.

              I previously used the ItCosmerics bb cream but later I was intorduced to Mally's bb cream and fell in love. This product doesn't get greasy like the itcosmetics one and its so quick and easy to use.

                    I had never used a product from the Mally brand before. I had actually never heard of it, but it was suggested to me by an employee. I'm very happy with my purchase. It is light but still provides good coverage. I was told that I did not need to use any setting powder or setting spray with this product and I have found that to be true. I'ill probably buy this again.

                          A:

                          Face Defender BB Cream Foundation has built-in priming and hydrating benefits, so many use it as an all-in-one product! If you have a dry skin type, you may prefer to use an additional moisturizer and then layer BB Cream over top.

                          We have received no complaints that Face Defender BB Cream Foundation causes a "flashback" effect - it should perform perfectly in flash photography! Use of a primer is optional, since it features built-in priming benefits.
