Mally's Evercolor Poreless Face Defender is the perfect finishing touch for your makeup. This remarkable technology yields an utterly sheer, featherweight product that diffuses the look of pores, minimizes fine lines, and helps protect your makeup so it lasts from morning to night. Face Defender gives you that flawless matte finish without the dry, ashy look of powder. The result is silky smooth skin and longer-lasting makeup. It comes with a unique buffed-edge Japanese sponge.

Not tested on animals.

 

Swirl the sponge in the Face Defender and softly pat this innovative, sheer formula all over your face. Never swipe or rub as this can move your makeup. Use the rounded corners of the sponge to get into all those hard to reach places, such as side of nose and inner corners of your eyes.

              This product is a really neat finishing powder that is in a balm form. There is no normal powder so it lasts longer. It really sets the foundation and helps to keep in all day.

                          Hi Love! Many women use this product alone to diminish the look of pores and shine. You can wear this as a primer. However, be sure to test this out with your favorite foundation. Different formulas can vary in how they apply and wear over the Face Defender.

                      • Q:

                        While this is meant to replace finishing powder, can it be used with setting powder and setting spray and still perform well? If I used all 3 at once, what order would I apply them in?

                          A:

                          Face Defender performs like a setting powder and a finishing spray in one. It instantly diffuses the look of pores and fine lines, keeps shine under control and helps makeup look fresh all day - and it's more convenient and less mess than loose powders and finishing sprays.
                          Using all three products likely won't give you 3 times better results. The look on the skin could be somewhat flat and dull.
                          If your skin is oily, you could use a light dusting of setting powder first. Then follow directly with Face Defender, patting it gently on the skin (never swipe or rub).
                          If you wish to use a setting spray, apply over makeup and powder, then wait a few minutes to let it dry completely before applying Face Defender. xox

                          The Face Defender can be used over shimmery blushes and highlighters. Make sure to use the Face Defender sparingly over such products so that you are not saturating the areas where the shimmery blushes and highlighters have been applied. We hope this helps!
