Fight The Powder Event With Mally Roncal On May 8, 2012

Mally Poreless Face Defender Compact with Sponge

Mally Roncal, celebrity makeup artist and president of Mally Beauty, has one nemesis— translucent powder! It does everything it’s not supposed to—highlights lines and wrinkles, dulls your complexion and leaves you looking lackluster. That’s why she has declared a war against translucent powder and developed a life-changing alternative: Face Defender. A high-performance, completely clear antidote to old-fashioned powder, the revolutionary formula has inspired legions of women to throw away their old compacts and change the way they apply makeup forever.

As the leader of the war on powder, Mally is issuing a battle cry, encouraging women to take a pledge to “Fight the Powder.” Beginning early May, you can take the “Fight The Powder” pledge on Mally Beauty’s Facebook page.

And, if you are going to be in the New York City-area on Tuesday, May 8th, Mally and her “Fight the Powder” squad are encouraging women to take a stand against translucent powder by trading in their old compact for Face Defender. The event is taking place outside of Grand Central Terminal, where Mally and her beauty team will encourage commuters to participate in a makeup trade-up. The first 50 women to take the pledge will receive Mally’s Face Defender ($40 USD).

Here are the details:

Where:                Outside of Grand Central Terminal

I do not live in New York City, so will unable to attend the event.  But I have recently received a sample of the product and love it!

The Face Defender is a clear solid product that almost looks like wax.  But when patted on the skin with the enclosed sponge (in a compartment under the compact with a mirror), pores and fine lines melt away!  Well, not really, but it appears as so.  Even the wrinkles under my eyes that are from seasonal allergies smooth out instantly with this product.  So nice!

Please let me know if you attend the event.  I want to hear all about it!

  1. I really like the Poreless Face Defender… I think it’s a great product. But I don’t totally buy the translucent powder is evil thing. I think it has its place– it *can* get cakey if overapplied, but in light touches it adds a beautiful diffusion softness and light to the skin that I don’t think the PFD does at all. To me, they are just two different products with two different uses.

    1. I agree. The Poreless Face Defender leaves a matte finish that I love, but I still wear translucent powder. I especially love It Cosmetics Bye Bye Pores. It isn’t cakey at all and smooths away pores and wrinkles.

      What powder do you like?
