Mally Evercolor Lip Lacquer Trio

Hi everyone!
About a week and a half ago I was watching Mally on QVC, and something- make that 3 somethings- really caught my eye! These glosses looked absolutely gorgeous and I totally felt compelled to order them. The set is called the Evercolor Lip Lacquer trio, and it costs $36.44. These glosses are said to include a "liner tip paddle" that gives extra precision and control.   

As opposed to being a flexible doe-foot applicator, the tip of this wand is very stiff, which I do believe gives more control when you're applying the product. However like most doe-foot wands, it is rounded at the tip, so I don't necessarily feel like it's giving the precision of a lip liner. Still, I do like the applicator and it made applying shiny, bright colors fairly quick and easy. In the pictures below I am not wearing any lip liner- just the glosses- so I feel like I had a pretty good result!

As far as the formula, these are all creamy and very shiny (no shimmer). If you're familiar with Mally's High Shine Liquid Lipsticks, these seem a bit more thin in consistency and more hydrating. They do feel very comfortable on the lips, but if you're doing a lot of talking or eating and drinking- you'll want to re-apply afterward. It's not a long-wear gloss, but I've had one on for about four hours now with no need to re-apply (I've only been sipping on some water and blogging, no major activity :). I did of course need to re-apply after a visit to a local winery yesterday, as you might expect. I noticed on QVC's website there were a few reviews saying these bled into lines around the lips... while I sometimes have that issue with certain products, I haven't had any problem with these. While I love the feel of these lip lacquers, the best part for me is the color intensity! What you see in the packaging is definitely what you get on your lips, and I love that. 

Pin-Up- a summery, bright red. I definitely felt like I had to be really careful as I applied this (it's pretty easy to tell when you screw up with a red lip product!) But I think the finished look is stunning and just really brightens up the whole face.

Melonista- While I thought the red and pink were going to be my favorite shades of this trio, this has been the one I've been wearing the most! I LOVE this bright coral/orange. I like how you get the orange tone, but it still seems to have a lot of red in it. Love this shade!

Gerbera Daisy- Who can't use a pretty pink lip gloss? While this one is the most subtle of the bunch, I love that it's still a fully opaque gloss- not sheer at all. If you're scared of neon pink, as you can see this isn't incredibly bright. Just a true pink!

Just wanted to share my thoughts on these new lip lacquers with you! If you prefer subtle, sheer glosses... you might find these a little too bold. But if bold is what you want- you'll love these! And while I didn't have issues with feathering, apparently that's something that could become an problem for some people with these, so be aware of that. Have you tried them yet? What did you think? The other big news where Mally is concerned (thanks to everyone who tweeted and emailed me about this!)- the brand is now being sold at Ulta! How exciting is that? :) 

Daily Nuggets...
  • If all goes well, I'm planning to have a video up this evening! 
  • Trying to do a little vlogging for the vlog channel today as well :)
  • Could you BELIEVE Nik Wallenda's tight rope walk last night?! I was so nervous as I watched it! And then had a dream about it last night! In my dream, I was the one in charge of setting up Nik's tight rope, and I had to do it in 10 minutes! I woke up before I found out what happened, which is probably for the best.
  • Speaking of sleeping- don't you love the feel of fresh sheets on the bed?
