It seems like too long ago I purchased the Mally Cancellation Concealer System! This kit used to come with a single concealer and a transparent pressed silica powder to set the concealer as well as a dual ended brush for application.
Recently I noticed the new Mally Cancellation Concealer Palette on QVC.com and realized she revamped the original set quite nicely. Now the concealer and powder is housed in a single palette where as before it came with two single compacts. I know that most folks hate the idea of powders and cream in one place but I actually felt like this made the compact more travel friendly and I honestly didn’t feel like I was getting powder into the cream concealer at all when using it so I think I’m quite cool with the new packaging! It still comes with the same great double ended brush as well!
Let’s check it out!
If anything at all the Mally Cancellation Concealer most reminds me of Bobbi Brown’s Creamy Concealer Kit but the formula is in no way a dupe just the designs are very much the same.
Not only has the packaging changed on the concealer but also the powder included. She did away with the silica powder and replaced it with a light buttery yellow powder. If you have dark circles the combination of the concealer and powder will help to diffuse them.
I loved the texture of the concealer back in the day and I still love it. It’s a lighter, emollient concealer that blends easily under my drier eyes with a hydrating, creamy texture. It seems to run a touch sheerer compared to the original formula because as I recall I was terribly impressed with the awesome pigment of the original but this version seems to be a little thinner and a little less pigmented. No worries though as it does great diffusing the look of my dark circles, brightening my under eye area up, and creating a nice, flawless finish under my eyes. The formula wears strong for me without creasing or fading easily. I get about six hours of wear if I don’t set it with powder and about eight when I do.

The powder is lovely as well but I wish it was a touch silkier. I thought the powder’s consistency was a bit chalky and as I applied it seemed to want to creep into my finer lines. Thankfully it doesn’t age my eyes but I thought it was a touch difficult to work with. Thankfully Mally includes a dual ended brush which has a bushier blending brush on one end to use with the powder and a flat head concealer brush on the other. The bushier blending bush is ideal for buffing the powder on under eyes.
I remember hailing the original system but I think there’s been a bit of a revamp here that’s not limited to the packaging. It’s still a great product but there are a few hiccups to contend with during use and some might be disappointed that the concealer runs sheerer compared to the older version!
Would I recommend trying it?
It’s a great concealing system regardless of the few problems it has 🙂
