If you have been living under a beauty rock then you may not know much about Mally.
Mally Beauty, founded by the owner Mally Roncal, was started because of her love affair with makeup. This is something that I can say I connect with as well. I have always loved makeup, even if I wasn't so great at understanding the concept of applying it perfectly when I was younger.YIKES!
After attending Cosmetology classes and reading tons of magazines; I started reproducing looks found in magazines with crazy eyeliner and fun colours.
As I got older I learned what worked well and what didn't and I wanted to try all the products I could get my hands on! I started getting even more creative and creating crazy looks just for fun. I literally spent 2 hours applying a sugar skull makeup only to take a photo and take it back off. Makeup is about art and expression just as much as it is about making you feel good.
The products I was able to try from Mally really fit the bill of making me feel good!
The Evercolor Poreless Face Defender is one of those products that really help you out where you need it most. Sometimes you can't help having pores you need a little help minimizing, but not only that it works to minimize fine lines, and gives your makeup staying power needed to last all day and night.
When you apply this over your makeup in lieu of powder it will set your makeup without making your skin look cake-y, dry, or ashy. This is amazing for me because if you just touch this product it feels silky smooth to the touch and with skin as dry as mine, applying any kind of powder over my foundation spells disaster for my makeup application!
There really is no such thing as "translucent powder", but with this you will have a matte, flawless finish without that horrible cake-y look to your face. I absolutely love this stuff!
The next product I tried was the Evercolor Shadow Stick in gunmetal. Not only is this product going to glide on smoothly, it's going to stay where you put it!
It is very rare to find cream shadows that do not crease, and I have trouble finding powder shadows that don't sometimes. You can apply the shadow stick easily all over the lid and blend out and wear as is, or pair with another colour shadow stick or even use this as a base! I love the gunmetal as a simple all over colour but you can really punch it up by adding more or wearing it sheer. After swatching it on my hand, it took a fair amount of scrubbing to get it to come off completely. The very best part? There is no sharpening needed and there is actually quite a bit of product in the tube!

When I look for a mascara, I am looking for something that will enhance the lashes I have. Isn't that what all girls want? The applicator on the Ginormous Mascara has a cut-out reservoir on each side that your lashes will be exposed to. Each lash will get an extra boost to achieve the fullest coverage and most volume possible.
After applying one coat I noticed that the formula leans more toward the wet side but it applied easily and added some nice volume to my lashes. After letting the first coat dry I applied a second and noticed a little more volume and length. If you aren't careful though you can easily clump and get spider lashes. You always want to be super careful when layering and comb through them.You can really see the difference in the photo from no mascara to two coats! This is definitely going to be one of my new favorite mascaras!
