    Comments about Mally Beauty Face Defender BB Cream Foundation:

    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.

          Comments about Mally Beauty Face Defender BB Cream Foundation:

          I bought the medium light - and it is a little too light so I am going to exchange. That being said, I really like this product. It blends well, and my skin still looks like my skin when I wear it.
          I have tried the IT cream as well, and I have to say that I prefer this over IT only because it is more matte. I have oily skin and this is better for all day wear it seems.
          I still wouldn't say it is full coverage, but a good medium coverage.

              This BB Cream is so lightweight. I honestly use my fingers to apply and am able to get full coverage. Only foundation makeup that I've tried that doesn't break me out.

                Comments about Mally Beauty Face Defender BB Cream Foundation:

                For a mattifying BB cream this offers medium coverage that looks natural. Most matte products look flat but this has the tiniest amount of shimmer that makes it look like real skin. I have been using this for a week on my oily skin and have not had any breakouts from it (yay!). I set it with mineral powder foundation for a little more coverage on work days. I still need a bit of powder on my T-zone after lunch but I haven't found anything ever that hides the shine all day without looking dead. So far, so good!

                    I really like this product it is so smooth and glides on perfectly. It does have full coverage for being a bb cream. I didn't really take it serious when it says it's a concealer as well but it really is!!! When u use this product u do not need concealer.

                      I apply with Mally brush but fingers or sponge would also work. I like this better than fancy department store foundations. It is easy to apply, stays on well, covers well, and feels like nothing.

                          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.
