Rated 4 out of 5 by cleokizzy It works! This is now a staple in my MU kit
This has been in my wishlist for months and I finally caved in when they offered this with 5mo easy pay ($40 is quite expensive for something that may/may not work). Well let me tell you, this face defender works! It removes oiliness and shine without the white-ish film that a finishing powder does. My only complaint is that the sponge does not have its own container (this came in a mini plastic bag that holds the compact and sponge) thus one star less.
Rated 5 out of 5 by lady jay "absolutely best purchase ever"
I'm a 52-year-old woman of color with very large cheek pores, nose pores and a crease between my brows. This Mally Porless Face Defender erases the pores and crease in these areas of my face without looking dry or ashy. I wear it under my makeup; it makes my makeup look fabulous and in the summer I just were the Poreless Face Defender on its own last all day. "GET IT", "LOVE IT"
Rated 5 out of 5 by Palmajo AMAZING!!
Mally, this is an amazing product! I was on the fence about trying it and am so happy I did!! It makes your skin look flawless after makeup is applied. I learned from other reviews to press and swirl sponge in product and dab on face, otherwise it may take makeup off. After all these years I have flawless looking skin without that drying face powder look. Get this girls!! I'm actually getting one for a friend for her birthday!! It's that good!! FYI....I add non powder blush after this product is applied.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Tahoe61 GREAT product
Mally's Poreless Face Defender is one of the greatest products I've ever used. Takes the shine away without giving you that dry creasing look. I use it around my nose and under my eyes to prevent eyeliner from giving that "racoon eye" look. I love it.
Rated 5 out of 5 by RaineG I've dumped the translucent powder!
I was looking for a finishing layer that didn't settle into my "wisdom lines" (a.k.a. wrinkles). Mally's Face Defender gives your make-up a very finished and matte look. I have even used this product instead of foundation when I'm dashing out the door for a smooth and even complexion. I do periodically wash the sponge as your make-up will transfer to the sponge during application. This is a "wise" lady's must have in her make-up kit!
Rated 4 out of 5 by lamyinheels23 ALMOST Perfect...
Love this as a sealer, leaving a perfect satin finish that's completely unrivaled! I've even used this as a makeup base in a pinch. Smooth application guaranteed! BUT! That GIGANTIC sponge is a big fat ZERO!It's clumsy, unable to get into corners, impossible to travel with, unable to fit into the (or ANY) compact)... I just use an application brush & it's all good. Work on it Mally! A knock out in every other way :)
Rated 4 out of 5 by Mimi3times Like but what changed?
I like this product but what happened to the compact with the sponge applicator in the bottom of the compact? So much more convenient! This product does the trick on my oily t-zone and a very little goes a long way. It works well but I surely miss the old compact. Not sure how to keep this giant sponge from getting gunked up.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Okie from Tulsa Revolutionary!!!
I am 59 years old & powder "sits" in the wrinkles when I use it. This product works wonderfully well & doesn't "sit" anywhere & gives me a flawless, smooth look. My makeup used to smudge on tissues, clothes, etc. Now, it doesn't come off at all. This defender is magic & "seals" my makeup on with the most natural look. Love it!!! Can't wait to use it this summer when the "shine" goes on!!!
Rated 5 out of 5 by tahoegirl14 Love love LOVE this product.
Oh Mally. You have changed my life with this product. I have normal to dry skin and usually don't wear a finishing powder but I had to try this one - and man am I ever glad I did. This product is so unbelievably amazing. It goes on so light but makes your skin SO soft and smooth. I can never believe how soft and smooth my face feels with this on. As an elementary teacher I don't have time to touch up my makeup during they day and I never have to worry about needing to with this product. Simply amazing. I will continue to purchase!
Rated 5 out of 5 by Chiple Great!
I really like this product ... It really works ... It's not cakey or sticky ... I don't know how they do it, but it takes away the shine without feeling yucky ... Great product!
Rated 1 out of 5 by SunMoonStars Not For Me.
I don't get it. It makes my makeup look cakey when I touch up. I've tried it several different times. Maybe it's not meant for oily skin? Who knows, but I'll just stick to Smashbox, oil free primer. At least that works and makes my makeup look flawless all day, even when I'm sweating through my work outs in the elliptical.
Rated 5 out of 5 by electrohouse Where has this product been all of my life!?!?!?
When I wear foundation, coverup, concealer, powder, or bronzer I just look up in the mirror after half the day and I will ALWAYS have a shiny, oily, and greasy appearing complexion. I used to be able to use 3-5 oil absorbing blotter sheets per day, until I found this amazing miracle product from Mally! I love it! It is just so amazing and many days I actually choose not to wear any other makeup b/c this Poreless Face Defender is all I need. I immediately ordered a few more after I received my first container. THANKS MALLY-WE LOVE YOU!!!! -ELECTROHOUSE
