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.

    Comments about Mally Beauty Poreless Face Defender:

    I won't lie, not having a place to store the sponge is kinda a hassle, but this product is worth it. Looks so much more natural than a powder and works on every skintone. it sets makeup without disturbing it and manages to minimize pores and wrinkles at the same time. It is pricey but worth it!!

                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.

                          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

                          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.

                        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
