Mally Beauty Ultimate Performance Inner Glow Blush

The Mally Beauty product line offers a unique mutli-tasking blush system that I couldn't wait to try. For those who may not know, Mally Roncal is a celebrity make-up artist who launched her own cosmetic line. She's received a lot of buzz in the media lately --Allure, Marie Claire, Seventeen, and Redbook--among others, spreading the word about her cosmetics.

The product I was really eager to try is called the Ultimate Performance Inner Glow Blush, which is a stacked, two part system of a blendable blush and a shaded setting powder. I always feel like I'm playing a mixing game when I apply my blush and powder to get it to just the right shade. It seemed like Mally's Inner Glow Blush might help me to achieve the look I want in an easier, longer lasting way. 

I was really excited when it arrived in the mail, but a little disappointed to find that there were no application instructions or techniques/tips to help me apply it correctly. I looked on the Mally Beauty website as well, and though there is a tab for application tips, nothing has been published there as of yet.  Luckily, with a little online research, I was able to find some information that explained more clearly how to use the blush to achieve a healthy vibrancy and then use the activating powder to set the cream, which is supposed to last for all-day wear. The powder also doubles as a foundation!

How to use it: 
  1. Begin by unscrewing the bottom of the compact to find the cream blush. Use the orange end of the double-ended brush and apply the cream blush to it. 
  2. Next, gently brush it on to your cheekbones as you would any other blush. Blend it along your cheekbones. 
  3. After that, open the top of the compact that holds the powder. Take the other end of the brush and apply powder to it. Brush the powder over the blush to tone and blend it to the color you prefer. (The powder can also be used as a light foundation, which I found really helpful in achieving an  even skin tone.) 

Overall, the blush and powder have a light feel, which I really like in any make-up that I wear. I really love the way the powder softens the blush color and it looks great all day long. Even in this hot summer weather, it holds up well for me. I also love that they added the compact mirror to this stacked system because it makes it really easy to throw in my little makeup bag and toss in my purse. I'd love it if the applicator brush had a cover for travel as well. It's also worth mentioning that Mally Beauty products offer a 30 day money back guarantee!
