Summertime is a disaster for me. I have combooily skin and during the summer months I get so frustrated when doing my makeup. Even when I can tell that my makeup is going to look amazing when I am done I am already sneering at myself because I know the second I walk out my front door that I am going to start looking wet in my t-zone and makeup will start sliding off my face. Don’t get me wrong, I like the dewy look but my oily skin makes me start looking so dewy I get down-right slippery! Mally Beauty has a product called the Evercolor Poreless Face Defender and I am stoked to have it in my arsenal for Summer! It is an innovative no-powder finisher for your makeup.
I bet you are wondering, “What is that thing?” “Is it a powder?” “Is it a primer?” Mally doesn’t believe in finishing powder. She knows that a lot of powders will only add an unnecessary layer of product on your face, can sometimes add color that is incorrect and can also make your face look cake-y! I don’t want cake face!
The Face Defender is a replacement for finishing powder. It 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.
When I am done with my foundation I take the sponge (which is nice and full and awesome), dab it into the product and then dab it onto my face. Much like a powder but completely different. I have noticed that my pores are minimized, almost like I used a filler/primer beforehand. While testing this out this last month I could count on my makeup lasting from 7AM-9:30PM daily. It really surprised me how good my makeup looked after a haggardly-long day! I am assuming that the reason everything smoothes out so nicely is the fact it is full of cones!
Ingredients: Polymethylsilsesquioxane, Dimethicone, Dimethicone Crosspolymer, Dimethicone/Vinyl Dimethicone Crosspolymer, PCA Dimethicone, Silica.
My final thoughts on the Mally Beauty Evercolor Poreless Face Defender are positive. My experience with this product validated their claims. My pores looked smaller (actually completely smooth), my fine lines were diminished and my makeup lasted and lasted! I do need to warn you that if you have a -cone sensitivity that you need to steer clear because that is the main ingredient! You only need a small dab and there is a ton of product so this will ultimately last forever. It retails for $40!
