In May I ordered the Mally The Good Life Collection. It was the TSV on QVC and I was still so happy and excited about the first collection I’d bought and reviewed, The Barely There Collection, that I couldn’t help myself.
4K Ultra HD Fantasy Foundation
New Foundation Brush
Perfect Prep Neutralizing Primer
I’ve found that I’m currently running low on this Primer and the one I got in the Barely There Collection. I wear them both with every other foundation and bb cream I have.
This feels lovely on the skin, almost like a gel moisturiser, and helps to even things out a bit before applying any base or concealer. Making it easier and take less effort to cover up any redness or dark circles.
I’m not a fan of silicone and oily feeling primers and neither of the Primers that I’ve tried from Mally are. They feel like skin care rather than makeup and make the application process afterwards easier and look better.
I’m always looking to repurchase this when it’s empty.
I like a mascara to give me both length and volume and this one is my favourite for that. As it’s not waterproof I do apply a thin coat of a great waterproof mascara first as a primer. Then I apply two or three coats of this on top and love the length it gives my lashes.
They look natural and fluttery. Like the lashes, I wish I had naturally.
I’d love to try Mally’s waterproof version of this mascara in the future. As the plush brush doesn’t leave me with any clumps so I’m hoping that would give me the same effect without having to use a primer first.
I tried this in my previous Mally review without a primer and it lasted really well. So, if you aren’t like and have to use waterproof mascara to not look like a panda five minutes after applying my makeup this might be really great for you.
Evercolor Starlight Waterproof Eyeliner
Eyeliner is another area where I struggle for longevity. Even when they’ve said waterproof I’ve had some smudge on me all day. So, I wasn’t sure what to expect with this.
But I was pleasantly surprised. I use this a lot with a fine brush to line my eyes and not only is the colour gorgeous, but it sets really quickly and lasts all day until I choose to remove it. It’s brilliant! They say on the website that it sets in 30 seconds and I can believe that.
The reason I was pleasantly surprised, was because the formula is really creamy and smooth. Which makes it really easy to use and I wondered if that might mean that it would smudge on my oily skin. But it hasn’t smudged on me once.
It’s incredibly pigmented and a little goes a long way. So, I can’t see this running out very soon.
Shadow Stick Extra
Available in 15 shades you could create so many different eye looks with these. Including these two, I now have three and use them all for one eye look or just one of them all over the lid.
They’re smooth, long-wearing and you get a load of product for your money. I’ve not had any of them break or snap on me and the packaging not only looks very elegant but is functional. Making these great for travel or just keeping in your bag for a day to night look.
With my skin type, I like to wear a primer underneath to prolong the look and wear of them. They do set quickly and wear well. I ‘ve not had them smudge on me, I just like the safeguard of a primer with my oily skin.
Ultimate Performance Shellac
I am not a lover of lip glosses or some liquid lipsticks. I got fed up with the stickiness of them and I found them uncomfortable to wear. Some liquid lipsticks would be too liquidy and smear or bleed. So, I wasn’t sure how I’d respond to this.
It’s a game changer!
I love how well this wears and how comfortable it is to wear. But it’s also incredibly shiny and easy to apply. The first time I wore it I admittedly applied too much. You only need to apply a thin layer as it’s so opaque and pigmented.
It feels really moisturising and even after eating and drinking it hasn’t smudged or moved on me. The wear is even and the flat wand makes it easy to apply a thin layer.
I paid over £40 for it but the Foundation is now on QVC’s site for £29 and the Primer is currently £27 to buy alone. So, I thought it was a great deal and opportunity to try more of Mally’s products.
