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!
