Makeup artist Mally Roncal’s started her career as pre-med, but currently she warms the hearts of beauty lovers, everywhere. Her own love of cosmetics was so strong, she followed her heart and pursued her true passion: beauty. Mally started as a makeup artist at the Shisheido counter at Barneys and ultimately became a makeup artist for private clients including the likes of Beyoncé Knowles, Jennifer Lopez, Mary J. Blige, Rihanna, Teri Hatcher, Celine Dion, Lee Ann Womack, Ashlee Simpson, Angelina Jolie, and Heidi Klum. Despite her glittering client line-up, Mally wants to empower all women with her own makeup line. She created Mally Beauty about seven years ago, and has grown it into a collection of over 1,000 products designed to deliver what Mally calls “bulletproof” beauty: user-friendly, multitasking products that truly stay put all day. Created for the real woman who doesn’t have time to touch up her makeup midday, the high-performance products are developed to offer real results and ultra-glam looks. No wonder Mally Beauty is a very popular line on QVC .
Since we don’t have the time or the space to review 1,000 products, I’m selecting just one very impressive, but still affordable, holiday gift set that is being featured on QVC. T here are a number of Mally Beauty gift sets offered on QVC for the holidays, but the one that is sure to get women licking their lips in anticipation (pun intended) is the Mally 10-Piece Slimline Lip Gloss Library (QVC Item #A228236 $44.00). The set is available now!
What you can’t see in the photo above, that I took at the QVC Holiday launch event for editors, is that this set of 10 gorgeous lip colors have swivel-up pen style cases with all-in-one, brush tip applicators. These are my favorite not just for style and portability, but for precise lip application. These glosses (yes, all 10!) arrive in a nice, hard-sided, cardboard box embossed with a subtle, metallic, gold and silver python skin design. That’s the kind of glamour you get before you even open the box, with magnetic top!
The real prize is inside: The 10 lip colors are mainly in wearable tones of pink, mauve and nude, with a few deeper tins including a peach, deep rose, red, and berry. Some of these have a shimmery formula with light reflecting particles to make lips pouty in a second, some are creamy, and some are more opaque than others. They are called Liquid Lipsticks but most of them are sheer and light glosses. No matter, you will have fun trying them all, and none are duds — Mally has made sure that they are all universally flattering. If you are already familiar with Mally Beauty, here is the list of the colors you’ll receive in this set: .04-oz Liquid Lipstick in Supernatural; Blossom; Pouty Pink; Starburst; Perfois Pink; Orchid; Summer Peach; Heartbreaker; Fuzzy Navel, and; Sweet Berry.
You may be tempted to break up the set and gift each friend with a Liquid Lipstick (or two, or three) but even though just one Mally lip color would be welcome, the set is just so….luxe, I wouldn’t break it up! No matter how you use these, they’re shiny and silky, with a slightly fruity scent.
