Mally Ultimate Performance Brightening 2-in-1 Eye Shadow

Mally Ultimate Performance Brightening 2-in-1  Eye Shadow ($26 USD)

What is it: A 2-in-1 eye shadow, with water built right into the formula, designed to be incredibly hydrating and long lasting. It creates gorgeous luminosity on the lid and can be built for more intensity and blended together seamlessly. The rollerball end contains a soft highlighter that has many great uses. It can also be worn on top of cream shadow for that extra glow.

Who is it for: Women who want a beautiful, bulletproof eye shadow that doesn’t crease, fade, or smudge.

Why is it different: This two-step eye shadow system allows you to create a beautiful eye look. How do I use it: First, take the cream shadow and apply it all over the lid, from lash line to crease and blend gently with your finger. Or, you can run it along the upper lash line for a great pop of brightening color. The beautiful formula is going to lay smoothly on the eye, hovering over any fine lines and wrinkles. It blends seamlessly to create a fabulous wash of color. Now, take the Highlighter and just pop it right into the inner corners of the eyes to instantly make you look awakened and refreshed. You can also take a little and apply it right in the center of each eyelid to make your eyes look wider..

Includes:

  • 0.1-fl oz cream shadow
  • 0.02-oz highlighter

What I think:  This product comes in 3 shades for the cream shadow — bronze, lilac and mint cream.  I have the lilac and bronze.  I like the lilac color the best, but it doesn’t have much staying power.  It starts off as a bright shimmery lilac, and fades to a softer matte color in a couple of hours.  Still, it’s pretty.  The bronze does last longer, but it is a bit dark for me.

The highlighting powder is pretty, but very sparkly.  It works well at the inner corners of the eye.

I say this may be a good product for you if you like sparkly, shimmery shadows and can reapply if needed.

Enjoy!

I have decided to split this up and give it away to THREE lucky winners!  To win, please be from the United States or Canada, and leave me a comment.  Once I announce the winners, I will ask you your first and second choices for the shades of Shadow Stick, Eyeliner and High Shine Liquid Lipstick.  I will make a little goodie bag and include one of each of those, plus a fabulous mascara.

I have tried all of these products and I LOVE them.  The mascara is one of my all time faves (like Mally)!  It gives length and fullness and is SO black.  I have black lashes and this even darkens them.

The lip color is also one of my favorites.  It is super shiny and moisturizing, not sticky at all.  It is a combo lipstick (for coverage) and gloss (for shine).

The liner and eyeshadow last all day.  Mally calls it “bulletproof”, and the shades are beautiful.

If you have already entered, I will include your entry and I will draw next Friday, January 20, 2012.  Good luck!

You can learn more and purchase this on www.qvc.com.  This would make great Valentine’s or Mother’s Day gifts for the fab ladies in your life!

Does Your Makeup Fade Easily? Try Mally’s Bulletproof Beauty!

Celebrity makeup artist Mally Roncal creates beautiful cosmetics that enhance a women’s beauty while lasting all day. This is perfect for all of us busy women, whether we are spouses, mothers, hold full-time jobs, make time for hobbies (like beauty blogging) or a combo of these. It is wonderful to try a line that includes wearable shades that won’t fall down my face at noon! Lately, I have tried the following fabulous products:
 
Mally Beauty 24/7 Professional Blush System ($35.00 QVC) This 24/7 blush is made using two new technologies that activate one another for long-lasting results. It gives a beautiful, natural blush that lasts with a cream and a powder blush that you layer for an all day glow. Together, these two products create the perfect bond, locking in a long-wearing, fresh, dewy color that won’t budge.

Includes:

  • 0.26 oz blush compact
  • Dual-ended brush

Mally Evercolor Long-Wear Shadow Stick Duo ($31.92 QVC) —  These shadow sticks in beautiful shades bring out the white in your eyes and catch highlights when you bat your lashes. The bulletproof formula glides on, sets, and wears for hours–all you need are these sticks and a finger to smudge and soften. I love the shimmer and the fact that they only come off when you take them off! So pretty! 

Includes:

  • Includes two 0.06 oz Evercolor shadow sticks — the colors combinations are:
  • Foxy: includes Rosy Taupe and Saddle Shimmer, both brown shades
  • Starlet: includes Dusk, a shimmery rose and Platinum, a metallic shimmer
  • Showstopper: includes Plum, a deep purple and Champagne, a shimmery beige

Mally “Rise & Shine” Long Wear 9-pc Brightening Collection ($67.00 QVC) —  The best of Mally’s high-performance products in a total face collection that helps you refresh and recharge your looks–so you feel your best.

Includes:

  • 0.3 fl oz Cancellation Conditioning Concealer in Fair, Light, Medium, Tan, or Rich
  • 0.18 oz Rise & Shine eye shadow duo with eye shadow brush in Coffee and Mocha
  • 0.13 oz Rise & Shine brightening blush
  • 0.39 fl oz volumizing mascara in Black
  • 0.04 oz Evercolor Starlight liner in Kona
  • 0.10 oz luminizer in Heavenly
  • 0.10 oz Highshine lip pen in Southern Peach
  • 0.044 oz Brow Beauty Brow Boost in Taupe
  • Cosmetic pouch

Some of the highlights of this collection is the Cancellation Conditioning Concealer — a long-wearing, full-coverage, SPF 25 concealer to be used under and around eyes, all over face or on body. Cover anything you want to conceal; Volumizing mascara captures Mally’s time-tested method of building incredible lashes. The formula won’t budge, but comes off with soap and water; Evercolor Starlight liner in a long-wearing deep brown called Kona, perfect to brighten and define eyes when you need performance; The Highshine lip pen creates Mally’s signature super-shiny lip by delivering a primer, lipstick, and gloss in one. The Southern Peach is a really pretty neutral

My least favorite was the eye shadow only because it both the shades are a deep brown. A lighter color would have made a more complete eye look.

Tips to used the kit: Apply concealer under eyes and on lids; dab and blend gently. Also add to any spots that need concealment. Apply luminizer with fingers on lid and cheekbones. Dust eye shadow across lids, lash line to crease. Use eye liner on top and/or bottom lash line and in inner rims for a more smoky look. Stroke on two coats of mascara on top lashes, one on bottom. Using short, feathery upward strokes, apply Brow Boost. Smile and apply blush on apples of cheeks, blending up towards cheekbones. Finish with a gorgeous glossy lip.

What is it: Mally Ultimate Performance Lipcolor System ($25.00 QVC) is the last word in glossy, full-color lip color that shines and lasts. The Lip Lacquer and Lip Liner work together to deliver a gorgeous, shiny full-color lip look that lasts and won’t travel. The Lip Liner works all over the lip to prep and grab, while the Lip Lacquer goes on ultra smooth, unbelievably shiny, and stays put.

Includes:

  • 0.17 fl oz Lip Lacquer
  • 0.01 oz Lip Liner
