Comments about Mally Beauty Face Defender BB Cream Foundation:

For a BB cream this is more than decent, a little over price but it does have extra ingredients in it if you're about spf. I only use this in the winter time as it doesn't hold well in spring and summer. It does offer a clean effortless complexion which I love but it's not long lasting as it'll run oily through out they day. If I could make it stay all day, this could be my go too because it's a very light foundation. A little does go along way so I can say you are getting your money's worth. If it could only be longer lasting this would be my go too! :)

    Comments about Mally Beauty Face Defender BB Cream Foundation:

    I have been using this Mally foundation, concealer, and powder for 3 years. I am writing a review because I noticed this awesome product is not getting all the raves it should! I've searched and searched for the perfect fit to my caramel complexion. I don't use primer and I only need just two "little half inch lines" of product on my finger and it's not too much and not too little.. I look flawless. People constantly compliment my "perfect skin" but they don't know that I give this foundation most of the credit. I am so glad I found this. I almost had a meltdown when I found out my local store stopped carrying it...and now I have to buy online..but that is fine as long as this product does not go away. I am a budget buyer and I used Loreal True-Match years ago and it was almost perfect...but this right here IS perfect and absolutely worth it! If you use a good lotion under the foundation, then a little bit of the powder on top....this product is NOT drying or cakey. You don't need a lot. I wear makeup almost every day and this bottle lasts me about 4-months. I also finish my look with NYX Matte Finish Spray.

      Comments about Mally Beauty Face Defender BB Cream Foundation:

      I am in my upper 40's and have winter dry skin. Mally has great products ( eye liner, concealer) especially this foundation that goes on so smooth , stays for hours and hours and the color match is perfect. I wear the light color which has enough coverage without looking like I am wearing too much & it does not settle in the annoying wrinkles around my eyes !!

              Comments about Mally Beauty Face Defender BB Cream Foundation:

              I apply with a foundation brush and this goes on smoothly and covers evenly. The past foundations I have used seem to be too thick or the converse, too liquid-y. This is a great combination of both. Just been using it about a week now and it is doing great. Long-term performance will be the key to ordering again, as price is pretty hefty, but you do get more in the tube than most other brands of the same range.

                  I happened to try a Mally concealer that I had been given as a free gift with a previous purchase a while ago, and was amazed by how well it worked! The very next day I went to my local Ulta in hopes to find one of her foundations with that same consistency that made me fall in love with the product, and I did! Face Defender BB Cream Foundation by Mally is an AMAZING product especially for aged dry skin like my own! This foundation will not settle in the fine lines, and wrinkles as it is very hydrating, and glides on ever so smoothly creating that flawless airbrushed look! It will last all day over one of her primers.

                      A:

                      Face Defender BB Cream Foundation has built-in priming and hydrating benefits, so many use it as an all-in-one product! If you have a dry skin type, you may prefer to use an additional moisturizer and then layer BB Cream over top.

                      We have received no complaints that Face Defender BB Cream Foundation causes a "flashback" effect - it should perform perfectly in flash photography! Use of a primer is optional, since it features built-in priming benefits.
