We all have our cosmetic vices. Mine happens to be concealer. I swear I’m utterly obsessed with concealer. More so than anything else in the makeup world. I’m always looking for the next big thing to hit the concealer scene. As passionate as I am about color cosmetics you can take that and double it and you’ll see how crazed I am about concealer.
I’ve found a few concealers that are my absolute holy grail but even I admit I’m known for cheating and trying out new stuff. Which is what recently led me on my merry chase to get some Mally Beauty 24/7 Professional Full-Coverage Concealer System. I brought it, I used it, and now here’s the review.
Check it after this jump.
What is the Mally Beauty 24/7 Professional Full-Coverage Concealer System?
It’s a two step concealing system that comes housed in a cute little pink pouch. For some odd reason I thought this was a dual ended product actually it’s not. It’s two products, one concealer stick and a powder stick, separate, not together. The creamy concealer is good for covering up blemishes, skin woes, and dark circles and the powder works at setting the concealer for long wear.
Presentation and packaging is always a key benefit of Mally’s products and this doesn’t fail in that department from the pouch that holds the concealing system to the pink packaging of the tubes and the innovative design of the powder.
The powder itself has a very cool design which I found both interesting and annoying. The powder itself is loose inside the tube and the cap has a small sponge embedded in the lid. Sounds awesome right? I liked the idea of patting the powder into place with a small sponge…..but…doesn’t work. It creates a bit of a pale ghostly look when applied with the sponge and manages to crease into fine lines. Now this isn’t to say it won’t work like an utter dream on blemishes but I don’t normally use concealer in any other place aside from my under eyes and my experience so far with the powder isn’t a good one. After a little struggling I found that patting the powder into place works a bit better and even gives an almost airbrushed finish, quite nice. But 4 times out of 5 I end up with a weird white cast and plenty of creasing due to my dry eyes.
Now the concealer itself is pretty decent. As I’ve mentioned in the past I’m not a lover of stick concealers but this manages to have a good moisturizing formula. It fails in the pigmentation department for me. It is pigmented but not enough to cover up majorly tired eyes or dark circles.
The kit was $31 bucks and some change plus the shipping you can go and round it off to $40. Bit pricey considering I didn’t love it.
All in all if I’m successful at application I’m happy with the results but most times I’m left looking more tired and older than when I originally started out. Honestly, concealer is supposed to refresh and wake up tired eyes right?
No likey. Love you Mally but this one was a fail for the Muse.
