One of the challenges with having dry skin is finding a cosmetic product that sets makeup without leaving your face feeling dehydrated.
However, Mikayla Nogueira might've found the perfect product for this skin type. In a TikTok video, the influencer tested out the Mally Beauty Face Defender. The unique product looks like a clear pomade, but it sets the makeup in place while keeping the skin hydrated.
When Nogueira tested out the viral item, she explained to followers that she isn't a fan of powder because of her dry skin. But after applying the Face Defender, her skin looked smooth and almost airbrushed, leaving her in awe.
“Shortly after I had my twins, I was watching a red carpet on television and everyone looked white and dry like Casper the Friendly Ghost. I couldn’t stand it, so I created the first-ever clear formula that didn’t look thick or cover up skin," Mally's founder Mally Roncal shared on the brand's site. "I’ve used Poreless Face Defender on every celebrity client I’ve ever worked on, especially those known for their natural glow like Alicia Keys and Jennifer Lopez because it eliminates oil without caking. RuPaul is a big fan, too. He uses it all over—even on his bald head! This product is truly universal.”
This unique product builds the bridge between beauty and technology. It's designed as an alternative to traditional setting powder, locks in the product and diffuses the appearance of pores and fine lines. It shouldn't come as a surprise that this innovative item was designed by Roncal, who is considered both a veteran and an icon in the industry.
Prior to launching her eponymous brand, Roncal was best known for working with celebrities such as Beyoncé and Lopez. Along with having a celebrity clientele, she was as a spokesperson for Sephora before launching Mally Beauty in 2005. Her products provide full coverage and help beauty lovers achieve a red carpet-worthy look from the comfort of their own homes.
