As you know, because I’ve told you many, many times before, I have dry skin. And as someone with dry skin, I fail to see the appeal of silicone primers. I migrate towards hydrating primers that will create a smooth, well hydrated surface for my foundation to adhere to since I’m not battling oil nor larger, visible pores. What I am seeking, is as much moisture as possible so my foundation looks natural, smooth, and even. I achieve this by using a good moisturizing facial primer. Silicone primer is a bust for me since I don’t have visible pores nor any oil I’m wanting to mattify.
The exception to this rule comes in the form of Mally Poreless Face Defender. Like me, many of you, have discovered this gem of a primer and love it. If you haven’t tried it I highly urge to check it out now since it is $20 with free shipping today only (for Platinum and Diamond Members) during Ulta’s 21 Days of Beauty Event (it’s normally $40).
Why is it so great? Well, I’ve reviewed it fully which you can see by clicking here but I’ll just give you a brief recap here. This is a silicone primer but it’s a solid one. It’s almost as if they melted down a silicone primer and poured it into a compact to set. The idea behind the formula is rather brilliant and works brilliantly which is pretty rare considering we run into so many unique and innovative products that seem awesome in theory but actually fail miserably. POreless Face Defender is not one. It works to smooth your skin, set your makeup, and just give you a perfect, airbrushed appearance.
Unlike regular facial primers you’ll use this as you one a setting powder, after you complete your entire makeup routine. Yes, that’s right is is applied as the last step in your routine over your makeup. You simply smooth the sponge it comes with over the balm and gently pat or smooth into onto your face. It’ll curb oil, set makeup, blur pores, and gives your makeup this perfectly smooth, airbrushed look. Even as a drIER skin user it still works for me. Whenever I use this my makeup looks so incredibly smooth and perfect plus it helps it to stick around a few extra hours.
Needless to say, I can’t rave it enough and I’m always excited when it goes on sale at Ulta.
I highly recommend getting one and trying it out for yourself
