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:

    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.

      Comments about Mally Beauty Poreless Face Defender:

      I have used this product for several years and I always keep it in stock. You have to remember to "pat" it on to set it as rubbing will remove your makeup. I have switched from powder to this after I started noticing in photos that I looked like a ghost while wearing powder. I saw a demo with Mally where she explained that powder contains talc which was causing the unnatural pale look so I tried this product and fell in LOVE! It's kind of expensive BUT will last a long time!

            I watched a video of Malloy applying this to see how it was supposed to be done since it's unlike anything I had ever seen. You don't swipe and pick up obvious product onto the sponge. And you just pat onto your skin - no swiping. You really think "I've been taken - I'm not applying anything to my face". But I have never been shine free all day until I used this.

                    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!!

                          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

                          Is the Evercolor Face Defender in the Mally's Beauty Favorites the same as this Poreless Face Defender? They look the same, but I noticed the word Pore in not in the beauty favorite one. Thanks!

                            A:

                            It works essentially the same way, except that the Evercolor Face Defender provides a warm tint, while this one is colorless. We hope this helps!
