So you want to try Mally Beauty?

Hello my friends! Ever since posting my video where I got to meet Mally Roncal, a celebrity makeup artist with her own FIERCE brand, I've gotten tons of questions from those of you who are new to Mally Beauty & want to know- what's the best way to jump in & try something?

I'll continue doing some blogs here & there highlighting various products I like, but I think this little kit is a great way for you to test some things out. I can safely say, I enjoy every single part of this set! This 5-piece color collection is called "Get the Look"- and it's based on Mally's own signature look! Personally, I think the $40 pricetag from QVC.com is a steal... you also get a cute little python print bag and an instruction pamphlet. This kit was also a QVC 2011 Customer Choice Award Winner- I believe the category was "best kit". For a video presentation on this kit and more pics- check out the QVC website. Right now I'm sitting here in my PJ's and hair towel, but at some point I'll post a pic or wear this kit in a video so you can see it on me.

left to right: eyeliner, lip color, blush, eyeshadow

The kit contains...
  • Volumizing Mascara... One of my top favorite mascaras!! Makes lashes full & thick without feeling hard or brittle. Great formula, great brush.
  • Evercolor Starlight Waterproof Liner in Midnight... a classic black liner, this is basically the same formula as Mally's automatic pencils that I rave about- only it's in traditional pencil form. Unlike the Black Cherry liner in the most recent Today's Special Value- which was more of a soft liner color- this is a rich, inky black. For me, this had great staying power on the lashline or the waterline and glides on every bit as easily as Urban Decay 24/7 pencils.
  • High Shine Liquid Lip Color in Mally's Glow... Perfect pink! It's totally creamy, opaque, and fabulous. I have quite a few of these Liquid Lip Colors and this is probably one of my favorites.
  • Blush in Mally's Glow... FYI- if you own the More Perfect Palette- this blush is in there, as is the eyeshadow in this kit. This is a great fresh pink blush with just the slightest glow. Totally wearable... I think everyone can use a pink blush!
  • Eyeshadow in Mally's Glow... Ever since trying this shade in my More Perfect Palette, I became a big believer in the wearability of bronzey-brown eyeshadows. The other day I wore this on its own- no other shades needed. The slightly metallic texture of this shadow makes it catch the light in some areas, and recede in the crease- practically serving 2 functions in one. I LOVE THAT! A really great shade for all eye colors.
Again- I spent $40 on this kit... and it's worth even more. All of the products are full-size and fantastic quality! I'll probably purchase this as a gift for friends & family because the colors are so universal & you don't have to worry about choosing the right concealer or foundation shade. Definitely appropriate for all ages, and I think the instruction booklet is super useful for those who are new to makeup. Anyway, I'm enjoying this kit so much- I just had to share! Have a great rest of the week everyone!! :)

  3. Dear Emily:
    I love your blog and your videos on youtube. I have learned so much about applying makeup from you and I have gotten so many beauty products following your advices.
    I got my first Mally kit from QVC. It was the last everyday value and I love it. The Face Defender in a miracle on the face. I was very curious about these products after listening to you talking about them and given them great reviews. I am so happy I got them!

  10. I have been thinking about trying her products but concerned about them being a match with my complexion. I am African American with a similar complexion as Halle Berry but no, we don't look alike.

  11. It's so weird that you happened to post this today cos there was a Mally repeat on QVC beauty here in the UK and although I loved pretty much every single product I actually had no idea where to start! :)

    The kit seems like the best value, not least of all cos the colours are those perfect-for-everyone shades! ♥

  17. Thanks for posting this because I really want to try this make up but not sure what to get. I love eye shadows, so your suggestion offers a little bit of everything. It's on my shopping list.

    Also, question about your hair towel (not sure what they call it) but where did you get yours? do you like it? I've seen several but unsure if they really work.

  19. Thank you Emily for turning me on to Mally. I was watching last night also and yes I also like the way she talks "luv ya girl". Lol. And I made another order for Christmas gifts for myself and my daughter. Thanks again for turning me on to her beauty line. I'm addicted! !
