I wanted to make sure I got my review of the Mally Beauty Evercolor Poreless Face Defender up ASAP because it’s one of the featured products today, March 22, on Ulta’s 21 Days of Beauty. Regularly priced at $40, for today only, Mally Face Defender is priced at $25!! Act fast on this one 🙂
Mally Face Defender has a clear, light, waxy (?) balm consistency (not sure which word would really capture it) that softens on contact and covers pores and skin imperfections leaving a poreless, flawless complexion. It is very lightweight, and I don’t feel it once it’s on. It not only minimizes pores, but it also helps minimize the look of fine lines. In addition, it sets makeup so that it lasts all day. Plus it leaves a natural-looking, invisible, smooth, matte finish that is much lighter than setting powder.
It comes with a triangular sponge applicator that you use as a blending sponge to apply the Face Defender. You bounce or lightly dab the sponge to cover. The triangular shape lets you apply easily around the nose and eyes. Here’s a link to a product demo on the Mally website that shows how to apply it.
Mally Face Defender is very similar to Yves St. Laurent Touche Eclat Blur Perfector that I received a few months ago.
Both are dimethicone-based, and that’s why they leave such a soft, smooth finish on the skin. While the YSL compact is so girly and pretty, the YSL compact comes with a fabric applicator pad that’s impossible to clean, and a couple of months later, the pad is really ratty looking. Furthermore, the YSL compact contains much less product for a much higher price: YSL $55 for 0.33 oz. vs Mally’s 0.46 oz. for $40 or $25 today only. IMHO, both products work exactly the same.
If you are looking for a product to minimize pores and fine lines as well as to set your makeup, look no further. Take advantage of the Ulta sale and buy practical but pretty Mally Beauty Face Defender today! This is a great deal! (There’s nothing in it for me, but if this awesome product interests you, Ulta’s sale price can’t be beat!)
