Find in Store-

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.

    Comments about Mally Beauty Poreless Face Defender:

    This was recommended to me by one of the consultants at Ulta. Once I had it on for a few hours I was hooked and am now looking at more products from this line. (Trust me, I have tried everything!) I have rosecea, overly sensitive red toned skin and seborrheic dermatitis and at 55 to add to my skin craziness it is now dry. This product makes my skin look natural and smooth all day! I can now wear face powders over it but I have not tried liquid foundation. I am also using the Mally powder. This is my line and I am sticking to it. I won't switch brands again. If you have problem skin, I would suggest giving this line a try.

        I really like this so far. Its taken the place of a setting/finishing powder which tends to be dry/old/cakey looking after awhile. This product is a miracle. But follow what it said dab on your face not rub. You will be amazed. It takes the shine away without the heaviness of powder. It does not require alot of product so the compact will last. Only wish it had a travel size and sponge for touch ups. But other then that its great!

                      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.

                            Can you use this over mineral makeup? I use compact Glo Minerals with a primer. Would the Mally produce sub for primer or just go over the powder base? I use a setting spray because I have dry skin and it makes the mineral powder less powdery looking. Not use that spray?

                              Absolutely, you can use Face Defender with powder and liquid/cream formulas of foundation, and yes, Face Defender can replace your setting spray, as it provides the same mattifying and makeup-setting benefits.

The sponge will always pick up a bit of foundation. By using Mally's "Tap,tap, tap. Then pat, pat, pat" pro application technique, you'll minimize any transfer of foundation! xox

                              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.
