Mally Volumising Mascara
I was introduced to Mally make-up when watching QVC. My mum is a massive QVC fan and must admit on occasion I do get sucked in! Mally is an american celebrity make-up artist with clients such Beyonce and Mary J Blige so she must be doing something right!
Every day from 12 am QVC offer one item at a low price for 24 hours, this is called 'Todays Special Value' and this is how I came to purchase this mascara! Very glad I did!
* designed to make your lashes look longer and fuller with a water-resistant formula for long-lasting colour.
* They also have a plush brush wand to help create volume for ultimate glamour. Achieve long, gorgeous lashes with Mally make-up.
I was very pleased with this mascara, being a bit of a mascara junkie I've tried a lot of different ones, both from high-end and drug store brands. I like my lashes long, thick and dramatic! I also like them really black. This delivered! My lashes were long and think with no clumps which is also very important! The mascara lasted all day until I removed it in the evening. It didn't flake off during the day so I was very pleased with the results. The wand made it very easy to apply to both the top and bottom lashes. My bottom lashes were very full to! I was also asked by friends what mascara I was wearing...I find this a massive compliment, I recommended it to my friends and they were just as impressed as I was!
The packaging was nice and girly, a white tube with pink writing. Unusual but still nice and simple.
VALUE FOR MONEY:
It's £17.50 for a 10ml tube on the QVC website. However they do deals such as duo's and trio's and sets with other things in aswell. I was very impressed with this mascara and would definately repurchase especially considering it did last such a long time!
Mally Volumizing Waterproof Mascara
I received this mascara along with a matching Mally eye liner for Christmas just gone. Mally was not a brand that I was familiar with until I was bought these products. It is an American brand created by a make-up artist for the stars, Mally Roncal, so far I have only been able to see it/buy it on QVC in the UK. I have to admit I was disappointed with the Mally eye liner that I was given, however I can happily say that the mascara is a much better product in my opinion.
My mascara came without a box, I don't know if this is normal or because mine was given to me in a homemade gift box with lots of other goodies. The mascara is in the typical wand tube shape that most mascara comes in, but is a lot longer than most I have used before, which makes it good for holding and angling when you are applying it to your eyelashes. The mascara is a bright, girly pink colour that is slightly metallic and it has the product name 'Volumizing Waterproof Mascara' and Mally branding across it.
The top of the mascara unscrews and you can then pull out the wand and applicator brush. This stick is again long and thin to match the length of the mascara. The mascara brush itself is made up of thick, spherical bristles that are diagonally patterned. There are a good number of bristles with an approximate 1 mm gap between the bristles diagonal arrangement. I like the look of the brush; it is nice, solid and thick with a good coverage of mascara liquid on it.
My mascara is a black colour, which is my usual mascara colour of choice so I was happy to receive it. As a rule I will put one generous coating of this on my eyelashes, the brush separates my lashes nicely and gives them a really good boost in volume in just a few strokes. I find that it really helps to make my lashes look full and thick. If you want even fuller lashes, you can apply one coat, let it dry and then add another. I do this when I am going on a big night out and it just gives you a really nice bold and defined look.
This mascara is also waterproof, which I really need because my eyes cry easily in the cold wind and with my hay fever in summer. I can vouch that this is a good, strong waterproof mascara.
Overall I'm really impressed with this mascara and will definitely be buying it again, if I can get it! As I have mentioned I can only find this on QVCUK.com where you can buy a duo pack for £24. I think they are well worth the money as I have paid a lot more for a lesser quality mascara.
I have been using mascaras for over 40 years now so must have tried most of them on the market over the decades. In the 1960s and 1970s there was the 'spit & mix' cake type ones with the tacky stiff brushes but thankfully, technology has progressed and there seem to be mascaras on the market that would suit all eyelashes and all price pockets.
My favourite used to be Dior but for the past 2 years I have been using Mally which, I have to truly say, is absollutely ideal for me and I no longer have to search for the perfect mascara. It does exactly what I need it to do - cover my lashes , volumise them with no need to touch up all day and be waterprrof.
I first cames across Mally a few years ago on QVC - she is a zany,but likeable American who is a professional make-up artist 'to the stars'. Whatever... she mmakes good products.
QVC sell 2x 10ml tubes for £20.20 but they last ages so do not be put off by the price. I use mine every day (2 coats) and i wand will last about 8 months.
The mascara itself is a good size with a long handle which enables me to reach awkward eyelashes. The brush is good and thick, again it is just the right size for coating every lash. I use 2 coats - the first to cover my very pale lashes and a second which helps volumise. If I need more volume I just add layers as required.
I have never experienced any irritation nor had stray lashes, any clumping or smudging with this Mally product.
Despite it having great holding power I have not had any problems removing it just using eye make up remover which I pick up from Savers.
I would highly recommend trying this especially as QVC have a 30 day no quibble money back guarantee.
* if you want a giggle have a look at Mally's demo on using mascara on Facebook - hilarious!
Like so many women I have tried and tested countless different mascaras in my time and wouldn't like to think of the amount of money spent along the way. Well I saw this Mally mascara demoed on QVC and the results looked amazing, like what you see on the TV adverts (but without the false lashes on and post-production cheating)!
It cost £20.20 for two full-size 10ml tubes so rather reasonable I thought and not as expensive as the most premium brands. I think QVC is the only stockist here in the UK.
This mascara slicks on like nothing else, it's SO easy to apply and has an absolute top quality applicator brush. The effect is truly fabulous, but the best thing for me personally is the 'holding' effect.
The lashes of my right eye have a lovely natural curl but the ones on my left are POKER STRAIGHT, they have been the bane of my life for years! I have the best eyelash curler on the market but the curl just wouldn't stay. Well this mascara fixes all that - my eyes finally match, and I have long, thick, dark lashes! I will honestly never buy another mascara again.
