A hero can take many forms: your amazing mom, that tough-but-effective teacher who got you to actually do your homework, or this fearless finishing product that goes by the name of Evercolor Poreless Face Defender (although we think we’ll now just refer to it as “The Defender”). This lightweight formula minimizes the look of pores and fine lines, leaving you with a long-lasting, flawless finish. It also expertly sets makeup, saving you the hassle of reapplying throughout the day.
I'm 61 years old, and while I do wear eye makeup, I rarely wear foundation. By using Mally Evercolor Pore Defender I get a silky, smooth complexion, and a very soft, shine free complexion, in lieu of using foundation. I'm fortunate that I don't have bad looking skin (age spots, etc.) as I'm aware this product is transparent. It fulfills my needs though, and worth every penny to me!5
This was a pretty expensive buy and for the money, I expected a whole lot more. After watching the video of Mally's creator talking about this product and watching her apply it, I rushed out and bought it, expecting great things. This was supposed to replace translucent finishing powder to set foundation. I didn't find it did that. I still needed the translucent powder and setting spray to have my makeup look good all day. Also, I found that I can't use it right under my eyes or it seems to make the fine lines look even more pronounced. You also need to be careful not to accidentally get any of this in your eyebrows. It just looks gross.
If this cost about a quarter of its normal price I might consider buying it again because I do feel like it cut down on shine in my T zone, but the little benefit it provides is not worth the full retail price to me.
This left my face silky smooth and locked in my make-up. I personally hate the massive sponge and recommend you buy wedges instead. Plus you absolutely cannot swipe this on your face, you must blot!!! Otherwise it will leave streaks that you cannot get rid of without washing your face.3
This stuff is amazing! I have an oily T zone and have tried everything, this is the only product that truly works wonders. It is a very unique texture you just wipe the clear compact and dan it on your face. Simply fabulous worth the money!5
This does work, but it just feels like those little taps you do with your poof don't really do anything....until you touch your face! That oil slick that was trying to jeopardize your highlight and contour will be a thing of the past with this stuff!3
I was so excited to try this product because I really love Mally's products, but this left my face looking a bit cakey.3
I love this silicone shine reducer. It takes a simple dab to apply and lasts way longer than I expect! I have combo skin, that errs more to the oily side as my day goes on. Best to not rub it on, just dab - makes all the difference in the world!
I ditched the chunky sponge applicator that came with the product as it was too big, unruly, ugly & didn't fit inside the compact either! Instead I bought disposable sponge applicators that are thinner and less obnoxious. I also depotted the product (no, it wasn't easy either and I depot a bunch of products routinely) and put it in a thinner compact that allowed room for the sponge applicator to fit inside as well.
I don't find the silicone to occlude my pores or irritate my skin in the least. It simply leaves a matte finish. I also only apply to my t-zone as I like a little glow to my cheeks. Well done Mally, except the packaging. Ugh the packaging!
This really does remove oily shine and it lasts pretty much all day. However, I didn't like the feel of the powdery texture that much and didn't see any difference in pores or fine lines. Applying more of the powder to cover the pores did not help at all - it caused my makeup underneath to have a weird blotchy texture. Otherwise, I found it very effective and lasting for removing shine. Just don't use too much - one or two pats on each area of the face should do the job.3
I have never tried anything like this. It seems to work well but I notice that my pores look clogged if I am not careful. I think it is better to use when you are going to be in dim lighting.4
I absolutely love this product. I use it as a face mattifier - anti shine product. Instead of powdering and then powdering again later, I use this! It leaves no traces and takes away the shine. I use it with the sponge in a blotting motion. You can use it over makeup or under makeup - doesn't matter. Works great on any skin color as it is clear.5
