Mally's 5pc High Performance Essentials - Swatches and Pictures


If you have been looking to try some of Mally's products, the Mally 5 Piece High Performance Essentials kit is a great way to try out here favorites, and at under $30!  Right now on QVC it is feature priced at $27.86.


The set consists of her mascara (my favorite), the Cancellation Concealer (another favorite of mine) in your choice of shade, the brush to use with the concealer, Mally's Evercolor Eyeshadow Stick in Taupe, Mally's Evercolor Starlight Liner in Onyx, and her lipgloss in Starburst.


What is it: A must-have essentials kit that is a trial-sized collection with proven bulletproof products. These products are all that you need to create the perfect, professional look that lasts.

Who is it for: Any woman who wants to try Mally's beauty line by using some of her core products that are essential to creating a complete look.

Why is it different: This collection includes trial-sized products to create that flawless, professional look.

How do I use it: Start with the Cancellation Concealer. Use the orange side of the double-ended brush and apply the creamy concealer below the eyes or anywhere you need it. Using your ring finger, gently smoosh the concealer into the skin.

Next, take the fluffy side of the brush and set the concealer with the setting powder.

Use the Evercolor Shadow Stick across the lids and into the crease for a beautiful shadow that will make your eyes pop.

Next, line and define your eyes with the Evercolor Starlight Liner.

Use the Volumizing Mascara to create full and voluminous lashes. Use two coats on the top and one on the bottom.

Lastly, swipe the gorgeous High-Shine Liquid Lipstick all over the lips to create the fullest pout.


First up, the Cancellation Concealer.  I chose the color Fair.  I've actually been using this for several months and love it.  Not only does it blend into the skin very easily, it doesn't settle into lines and I find it actually does cancel out my dark circles!  The setting powder has the slightest shimmer to it to reflect light and brighten the eyes.  Also, using the setting powder makes application of my powder foundation ontop off the concealer a lot easier and less cakey-looking than if I use it (or any other liquid concealer) alone. 


I tend to use my fingers for the application of the concealer, but this brush is very useful when you hit the pan and need to grab the concealer along the side of the pan.  It also helps get the foundation up into the tiny corners around your eyes. 


The other half of the brush is a dense, but fluffy, brush to apply the setting powder ontop of the concealer. 


Up next, the Evercolor Starlight Eyeliner in Onyx.  A truly deep, rich black that actually brightens the whites of your eyes.  I use this on the top and bottom of my lashline, as well as along the waterline without any issues.  I love the fine tip of this particular liner, and it is very smooth and easy to apply without dragging or skipping along the lashline...a definite bonus!  Although this is supposed to be "bullet proof", I tend to see a tiny bit of smudging along my lower lashes by the end of the day, but I'll be honest - I don't think there is a liner that doesn't do that on me!  Compared to most, this definitely lasts and stays put the best.


Up next, my favorite of the collection - the Evercolor Eyeshadow Stick in Taupe.  Now, if you are looking for something bullet-proof, this is the thing!  The  color is beautiful - a silvery, but warm taupe.  Actually, the only part that is really silvery about it is the shimmer.  The base of the shadow is definitely a warm taupe, but the shimmer comes through as a silver/pewter color, allowing it to work both ways.  The tip of the shadow stick is rounded allowing it to be used easily as an eyeshadow.  Work quickly, though, this stuff sets quickly and doesn't move from there! 

The consistency is very smooth and creamy, so it works really well as an eyeliner along the lower lashline too.  I also found that when I put eyeshadow over the top, blending was very easy and it works extremely well as an eyeshadow base.  There are several other shades of these available on QVC as single eyeshadow sticks for $25 or sets of 2 for $35.  Obviously the sets of 2 are a better price, but there are several other colors available in the singles as compared to the sets of 2. 


Mally always has gorgeous lip glosses, and this is no exception.  Mally's Liquid Lipstick in Starbright is a very thick and creamy consistency, with a slight coral color when on the lips.  There is champagne and pink shimmer running through.

  1. I was tempted to pick this up! I just got Mally's "Defend Your Beauty" collection not too long ago. I'm finding that her products are hit and miss for me. The eyeshadow stick creases on me unless I set it with a powder shadow. But I do love her lip products and mascara! I would be interested to see if the concealer set works for me. Thanks so much for your review of this collection!
