Circa 2004-2005, I remember the day that I walked into Bendel’s on 5th Ave. and became mesmerized by all the glamorous beauty lines. It was different than the experience I got when I scoured the retail beauty departments. I also clearly remember a product line that was displayed in the center beauty aisle…it was Mally Roncal Beauty. Fast forward years later, I was mesmerized by Mally herself, this time when I saw her live on QVC. I had never tried her line before but couldn’t resist getting the “Share the Love” collection because it offered a great variety of Mally products. Here’s a brief roundup along with my beauty bit on each product:
Eye Amplifying Shadow Liner in Chestnut
I love the beautiful bronze shade but would recommend using it as a liner rather than eyeshadow because it truly is bulletproof which made the smudging a little challenging.
Starlight Automatic Waterproof Eyeliner in Deepest Brown
Although I lean more towards kohl eyeliner, the color of this one is beautiful and doesn’t run or smear like my usual eyeliner. I can also use this to line my inner rim to take my look from day to night.
(2) Volumizing Mascaras in Black
Wow, talk about sharing the love! This kit includes two full size Volumizing mascaras. The definition is amazing and it doesn’t clump!
24/7 Professional Illuminating Blush System
For those of you who know me well know that I’m a sucker for anything that makes me “glow!” This is how you apply: first apply the glow on the apples of the cheeks and then apply blush powder on top for a sun-kissed effect!
Poreless Perfection Skin Finisher
If you’re struggling with large pores, you should try this product. This finisher is perfect for the summer heat because it’s matte without being drying.
(2) Lip Magnifiers in Blush
Perhaps one of the best lip gloss + lipstick combinations I’ve ever tried. The colors are soft without being sheer and luminous without being sticky.
For those of you who are curious, adding the suffix -ista to the end of a word such as fashionista means one who follows a principle or philosophy. Mally’s loyal fans AKA “Mallynistas” understand the benefits of the technology in these products and now I do too. These smudge-proof, bulletproof and long-wearing products will definitely be in my summer makeup bag, ready to help me survive the scorching summer heat here in Vegas.
