Comments about Mally Beauty Face Defender BB Cream Foundation:

Wanted a lightweight BB cream for summer. Recomnended by store personnel and applied with stippling brush. Looked ok, but was mostly checking for color match as I am fair neutral with dry skin. After a few hours I was concerned about oxidation as it got too warm. Next day applued with fingers as that is my preference for quick out the door summer BB cream. This resulted in heavy coverage, more like a full coverage foundation, too matte and drying. Next day, damp beauty blender, better, but still dry feeling after a few hours with oxidation.

This us nit a BB cream, but a matte full coverage foundation with SPF. Be careful if you are looking fir a lightweight warm weather BB cream.

    I have light skin but find the medium light in this product works well in the summer months - gives me a little warmth.

      Best coverage foundation I've ever used. Yet isn't heavy nor pore clogging. Never creases in wrinkles. Leaves a smooth matte finish.

                  Comments about Mally Beauty Face Defender BB Cream Foundation:

                  First off, this product's name is misleading, as it really is too thick to be a BB cream - it coats like a medium weight foundation. That said, I rather liked it at first. I bought this foundation for a wedding, applied it with a damp sponge and it looked amazing in photos. After a month or so, however, I started to notice that it was settling into every tiny line, pore, and dry patch on my face. As the day went on, it would break down, go patchy, and slip. My skin is combo, very fair, with small pores and hardly any wrinkles. I tried pairing this foundation with various different combinations of moisturizers, primers, etc and even on bare skin. Same result every time. I've only had this happen with drugstore brands (namely Rimmel), but never with a high end foundation. Dissapointing.

                  Comments about Mally Beauty Face Defender BB Cream Foundation:

                  This may be a decent option for those with normal or oily skin, but if you have any dry patches, you may want to skip on this product. I have combo/dry skin, and this foundation did not blend well, even when I used a primer. Since it is a BB foundation, I expected it to be more hydrating. I tried mixing it with a moisturizer, but it was still too cakey looking. The pigmentation is good, but the product just stuck to my skin in an unflattering way.

                  Specifically asked for full coverage long lasting foundation. This definatlely does not match that request.
                  Lasts about 4 hours -- then need to re apply .
                  Doesn't cover blemishes well .

                      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.
