Mally 5-pc Cream Shadow Stick Library (QVC-A226397, $32)
Some of you guys have got to be thinking….what the heck is that? Well let me tell you Mally on QVC likes to keep things interesting. The first time I saw her talk about this I think my mouth was hanging open for a few minutes. This looks more like a little pistol (have I ever told you how many times I was taunted in school-crystal your a pistol! grrrrr) or tool for doing man things like taking out nuts and bolts or bits you know whatever!
But let me tell you if you aren’t good with liquid liner this is a great way to learn. An expensive but great way to learn.
I’m a little crazy about Mally. She rules my TV when she’s on QVC and she urks my husband a bit. Last week is a perfect example of how things go at the house.
Husband/QVC EasyPay Hater: (walks by the room I’m in) “I know that voice.”
Me: MALLY’s on!!!
Husband/QVC EasyPay Hater: “Order whatever you want but NO EASYPAY.”
Me: “She’s got another 10-Piece Library this time its eyeliners instead of lip gloss, I think I want it.”
Husband/QVC EasyPay Hater: “No easypay. I don’t care if it’s $1,000 I would rather feel the pain all at once than get robbed every month slowly.”
Me: “Okay, look at those colors (I point to the TV screen with glee) this is gonna be great to have!”
Husband/QVC EasyPay Hater: (leaves the room with a glass of booze and a grimace)
There’s a new Mally palette called In The Buff available on QVC now. It’s her biggest eyeshadow set ever! There are eleven shades, a creamy shadow base, and a two sided brush in the palette.
I got it a few weeks ago and thought I’d swatch it for you.
Au Natural, Bubbly, Buff, Tiger’s Eye, Cappuccino, and Shimmering Taupe (left to right)
Brownstone, Oak, Egyptian Gold, Toast, and Chocolate Diamond (left to right)
I hope the swatches are okay. I was trying to work fast because of course I get ready to do this and the clouds roll in! I like this palette and had fun playing around with it. I think that the shadows are wearable and pigmented for the most part. I only had issues with Bubbly being a little on the chunky/fallout heavy side and Chocolate Diamond was a miss for me. I feel like so many brands have a color like Chocolate Diamond. The base of the shadow is a nice rich color and then there are glitter flecks thrown in there that are kind of silly and just fall down to your cheeks at some point later in the day. You can see that in my swatch above.
The Shadow Base cream (.1 oz) thats in the palette works but leaves an ivory colored film over my lids which is fine for certain eye looks but I won’t be using it as much as I would if it had a clear colorless finish. I love the shadow colors as much as my Naked Palette but I don’t think anyone needs both.
I think the noticeable differences for me are that the Mally shadows have less fallout and I like the pigmentation a little better. But the Urban Decay Naked Palette appeals to me more because of the color variety. There is a much wider range of color. Mally’s palette is super NUDE if that makes sense. Like the difference between being in your underwear (Naked Palette) or being completely naked (In The Buff Palette) hee hee!
The colors are lighter for the most part making this a much better pick for someone that really lives in very nude eye looks. I like some variety and deeper shades in the mix so if you made me choose based on which I’d personally prefer it’s the Urban Decay Naked Palette.
I’m still very happy and will use this palette gladly since I’m crazy about Mally and her products never let me down!
I like brights. When I saw the QVC presentation for these lip sets on TV I took notice. One of Mally’s models was wearing the Bright Pink combo and it practically was glowing at me through the screen. I added this to my shopping cart before they even got to the up close lip shots. If it glows, it’s gonna be mine.
There are three sets available and they retail for $30 each. I got the Bright Pink.
From the QVC website:
- Includes 0.009-oz Evercolor Shaping Lip Liner, 0.11-oz Evercolor Satin Lipstick, and 0.12-oz High Shine Liquid Lipstick
- Classic Pink: includes warm pink shades
- Soft Pink: includes nude pink shades
- Bright Pink: includes cool pink shades
I must say the liner and lipstick are good but the lip gloss is GREAT. Check this out at QVC if you’d like to get your perfect pink. The Classic Pink and Soft Pink sets look great too. And they don’t glow so if Bright Pink is too much for you and you don’t like literally being a loud mouth (hee hee) check them out.
I’ve become a sucker for Mally shadows, all of them. I love the texture and the way my lids feel while wearing them. They explain it best on QVC.com in the product description for Beach Bombshell ($50) which I’ll share:
The Effortless Airbrush Eye Shadow formula isn’t a powder; it’s not a cream; it’s the most beautiful marriage of hydrating and comforting ingredients that give you a soft, radiant glow and that perfect look of airbrushing.
I am the farthest thing from a Beach Bombshell but I feel like a sexy babe when I wear this! I really like all three shades. But my favorite has to be Wine Me, Dine Me the deep burgundy in this kit. It’s a beautiful deep color that looks pretty on my eyes along with the bronze/golds that are also in the trio. I swatched all three shades on my hand for you. I wish there was some way you could feel these shades too! They are so buttery and light.
Beach Bombshell was sent to me for review but I liked it so much I purchased the other trio Earth Angel from QVC recently. I couldn’t help myself! It just came in the mail a few days ago so I’m still playing with it but I hope to swatch and review it for you soon. Check out either trio from Mally on QVC.com.
Nobody does it like Mally. I have tried so many creamy shadow sticks hoping that they wouldn’t crease on me and this is the only brand I’ve found that delivers on its promise when it comes to lasting color on your lids! From the Mally website:
Evercolor Shadow Stick is the perfect solution for a quick, long wearing eye that looks incredible all day. It won’t come off until you take it off!
I can co-sign on all of that. This beautiful Deep Plum shade stays on all day. I always use primer on my lids but with all the other creamy eye products I’ve tried that doesn’t matter. Creasing is something that happens regardless which is a huge pain. Who wants to look like they have drunk been up all night creasing makeup at 11am? Not me! Thats how I looked unfortunately after using products for my lids from Revlon, Almay, and Covergirl just to name a few. At $25 a pop Mally’s Evercolor sticks aren’t cheap but if you get a color you like and don’t have to worry about it looking like crap after a few hours I say its worth it!
On the first day trying this color out I kept looking in the mirror every few hours to make sure I didn’t look like a funky raccoon. But by mid-day I figured I was all set. Sure enough this stayed on all day and looked the same in the evening when I removed it. Now I know why its called bulletproof! Of course now I’m obsessed with these shades and I need all the colors. You know me…a little is never enough. I need it ALL!
You can pick up single shadow stick shades for $25 each on mallybeauty.com there are 20 colors available, so something for everyone. But I highly recommend checking out sets of Mally products on QVC. Usually you can find a set/kit of items with a Shadow Stick included and get more for your money. Check these out guys because the colors are gorgeous and the staying power is amazing!
