Mally Poreless Face Defender with Sponge
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!
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 :)
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.
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!!!
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!
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!
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.
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
Best beauty product on earth!
Since using it I get told how beautiful my skin is or how beautiful I am! First off I am in my 40's and have scars on my face, fine lines, oily and dry patches AND my pores are huge BUT NOT WHEN I USE THIS OVER MY FOUNDATION! You can use this over liquid or powder foundations. It truly truly is the best make up tool you could own. The trick is circling the sponge around the product and Press it into your skin. Don't rub it or wipe it. I keep the little plastic shield it comes with in it to protect the product. Thank you Mally!
I brought this product to use for my vacation to the Island of Trinidad and Tobago. My makeup #awesomeness... My face maintained the matte yet flawless look. It was so good, people started asking me what brand of makeup I was using. Thanks and keep the great attitude and awesome makeup coming...
Love this product but......
I love this product and have used it for some time, but I wish Mally could fix a problem I have with it. After I use it about a week the Poreless Face Defender splits in the compact and therefore there is less product in the compact from that point on.. I don"t know what causes this but it's almost like the product is so thin in the compact that by rubbing the sponge over it causes it to split. The product is great but I wish this problem could be solved because I don't feel like I'm not getting my moneys worth.
I've purchased this product a few times before and thought it worked great; then one day I had an appointment and did not want to appear dressed up, just casual, after applying makeup everything seemed a little out of place my face seemed a little over done for the occasion, I applied "Poreless Face Defender" and right away I achieve the look I was aiming for. This is the best 'make-up adjuster/corrector' ever. It adjusts your make-up to suit the occasion, whether it's a fancy affair or a casual one. Thank you Mally and QVC.
