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:

      I used this product on Thanksgiving Day knowing I would be very busy and didn't want to shine. I felt like the product was hard to apply to the sponge and didn't feel like much got on there but when applied to my face it did look nice. My skin stayed nicely matte throughout the day but the next day I awoke to at least 20 new pimples!! My skin has been pimple free for a while so this was a shock. The product works and does what it says but I won't continue to use as pimples all over my face is much worse than oily skin!

        I love this product! It is so simple to use. Just tap it on and press it into your skin. Great for all skin types because it doesn't leave any residue and it doesn't dry your skin out either. It is very different from anything I've ever used before. I thought it was really subtle until I ran out and didn't use it for a week. I started to notice my skin didn't have that polished, airbrushed look anymore! My face just didn't have that enlivened look. As soon as I could find it, (it had sold out on a shopping show) but this website had a better price and presto! My skin looked great again. I highly recommend this product for a smooth natural face, no powder for this 64 year old's face!

          Being a hairstylist & a makeup artist for 20 years, I use this for both a primer, to fill fine lines & pock marks, Ect.., and I use it at the very end very lightly to set makeup in its place for up to 20 hours. Use on many brides& performers!

          Comments about Mally Beauty Poreless Face Defender:

          I purchased the Boost on a TV shopping network and the sponge was awesome! The product itself was great. I really loved the Boost one so I thought I'd purchase this one here on the Ulta website because of my Platinum status. But I was disappointed with the sponge because it was not the same sponge. It was the same shape and it looked like it was supposed to be the same exact sponge but it was clearly thinner than the one I got on the TV shopping network. It seems like Ulta gets the lower quality product. I love the Mally sponge that comes with this product so I was very disappointed with the sponge I got with this one I bought at Ulta. This would get 5 stars if it had the original sponge.

                I love this product and have been using it for years. I set my makeup with it in the morning and I am shine-free all day. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is bc the case is too big to carry in my purse and there is no way to carry the applicator.
                There used to be a travel version that had almost the same amount of product in a smaller case and the applicator could be carried within the case. I wish they would bring that back.

                  this stuff is just weird and the container is impossible to open with your hands. The rep who recommended this didn't tell me it goes on after your makeup, I thought it was like a primer and went on after. So then I finally read reviews and realized you put it on after foundation but you are dabbing it on on top of your foundation and that process itself removes some of your foundation. I don't like it; I am returning it along with the foundation by the same company

                    If you use this as Mally directs "tap, tap,tap...pat, pat, pat" then this will work well. If you swipe the product it will get gunky. I no longer use powder to set my makeup. Face defender mattifies and blurs. I am 54 years old with normal skin and LOVE this product.

                    • Q:

                      I am 55 yrs old so I try to use very little makeup to minimize look of lines, wrinkles etc. My skin is also very dry. Is ithere a drying product. I can't wear regular powder in a compact because it's drying regardless of the quality of the compact. It seems to just dry out my skin and get into my lines and make them more pronounced. How does this product work for someone my age with dry skin, minimum wrinkles that I want to hide not accentuate. I wear a lot of moisturizers la mer and strivectin and just use tinted moisturizer with Xtra tint under my eyes. Would you suggest this or something different for a quick, natural coverage that will last most of the day. Any suggestions would be great. Thx, Robyn

                    • Q:

                      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.

                        To apply, tap the sponge onto the product, never swipe or rub. The, gently pat the product all over the face. Never swipe or rub. 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
