          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 .

          Comments about Mally Beauty Face Defender BB Cream Foundation:

          I was kind of disappointed with this BB cream as I did some research and watch reviews over it. As it wears out throughout the day, my face looks likes its melting and I'm constantly patting oil off my skin, I have normal skin and I think this cream would work better for dry skin. Def not worth the money. I'll be going back to my old bb cream.

                    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.
