      Comments about Mally Beauty Face Defender BB Cream Foundation:

      The product was a splurge, but worth it. I have dry, sensitive skin and this didn't irritate my skin or emphasize my dryness (except on the lids a bit). Coverage is light/medium, covers small imperfections, and finish was satin (not dewy, not matte). Needs to be set with a powder immediately where creasing may occur (lids, under eyes, laugh lines, etc), but other than that longevity is good (will last all day, but not through much sweating). Overall, a good product.

      I am a total Mallynista! But I do have picky skin. Sometimes I'm dry but mid day I get oily. This product not only is lightweight yet also has great coverage but stays put all day long! Its a little pricy but love it and I'm sure I'll be buying it again!

        Comments about Mally Beauty Face Defender BB Cream Foundation:

        When I first tried this Foundation I fell in love because of the coverage and lightweight texture and that it didn't cause my skin to break out. However, after wearing this all day I found it sliding off of my face even after setting it and using an oil free primer. I would recommend this for someone who might have dry skin and are looking for a sheer coverage foundation as some skin still shows through.

              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.

                  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.

                  A:

                  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.
