It’s hard to express just how much I love Mally Beauty’s newest blush, Mallywood Highlighting Blush. I have worn it continuously since I got it. Every other blush is totally ignored, even products I’ve bought since I got this. Everything about this Mallywood blush screams my name and refuses to allow me to wear anything else.sample, affiliate link
One reason this is so unusual is that I’m a huge fan of cream blushes and actually don’t wear powder ones that often. But Mally changed my mind with the perfect pink blush. With 4 blush shades and 2 soft highlighter shades it is perfection for my cool toned fair skin. Mallywood though isn’t just for pale princesses since it can be built up, it’s appropriate for just about every one.
The best way for me to use Mallywood Highlighting Blush is to swirl a blush brush around the entire surface of it. It has a unique “wave” pressing technology that allows for all the shades to blend seamlessly together for a perfect blush shade. With all but the purple shade I can use these with a smaller brush on my eyes too. The purple doesn’t seem to pick up much color individually though but it adds to the overall effect.
While the delightful packaging screams glitz, there’s nothing glitzy about this. The highlighters are subtle, the only glitter is the embossed glitter on the compact. These are more iridescent. I take a medium size eyeshadow brush and pick those up to highlight on the top of my cheekbones. This is so perfectly multi-purpose!
This Ulta only blush is part of a great looking collection but most of the collection is limited edition so you don’t want to lose out by hesitating. The blush will be the best $28 you’ll spend all summer. This is holy grail territory for me! — Marcia
