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.

 

Tap, tap, tap; then pat, pat, pat for a smooth, shine-free, soft-focus finish! Tap the sponge onto the product. Never swipe or rub. Pat this innovative, sheer formula gently all over your face. Never swipe or rub. 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.

          I was pleasantly surprised with this product. Wasn't expecting to like it as much as I do. I saw Mally demonstrate this on tv and suggested it be used as a primer before your makeup goes on. I have been using it that way and boy does it really control my oily skin. So far, I'm happy with the product. Unfortunately, it is on the pricey side.

                I have rosacea and oily combo skin. By noon most days I look like an oil slick with or with out primer, foundation, powder and oil blotting sheets. I've been using this product over my makeup, over just my primer, and even on bare skin.... it works wonderfully! Better over primer but truly improves the look of pores and controls oil!!

                      I have been using this product for years to control shine in my tzone when I wear full coverage makeup with powder. It not only helps to make my skin look flawless (after makeup), but helps to control the shine for about 4 hours so that I don't have to repowder as frequently.

                        Tried this several years ago, was touted as superior product for oily skin, so I jumped on it. Sooo disappointed! It was easy enough to apply but had no staying power-- areas of my face looked like oil slicks after an hour or two and you could see the product in my pores and lines. I tried w/o moisturizer, over moisturizer, over my mineral makeup. Nothing worked. Then after a week or so I noticed my skin was getting dry and flaky. Discontinued and went back to Prime Time, and even Avon's MagiX face perfector is better.

                            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

                          I have lost the sponge that this originally came with.. what else can I use to apply this product to my face, or can the sponge be bought separately?

                            Hi Love! Take a clean powder brush and swirl into the product. Then pat all over the face to eliminate the look of pores and fine lines and mattify the skin! xox
