I picked up the Mally 24/7 Professional Blush in the shade Pink Satin in a recent Mally kit from QVC. It also came with a duo-ended brush, but I forgot to photograph it.
Check out my pics, swatches, stats, and review...

Basic stats for Mally's 24/7 Professional Blush:

Shade Range: available in several shade duos
Container: pink metal compact; mirror on one side, two color replacement compartments on the other

My Rating: 4 out 5 Kisses
This product contains both a pressed-powder blush and a cream blush/highlighter. The cream side is just that; very creamy and smooth. The shade I have is more of a highlight shade but they do some in deeper tones to be used as a cream blush. The pressed-powder side is a silky blush that goes on easily. You're supposed to first apply the cream shade and top it with the powder shade to form a long-lasting dewy blush.
This blush duo allows you to have decent control over how opaque you go. I'm able to apply this blush rather sheer or build to make the color more vibrant.
When used properly (cream first, then powder) this blush is supposed to form a long-lasting bond. I personally haven't tested this product out yet so I can't speak on its staying power, however, considering Mally makes it I can pretty much be sure that it will last and last!
Currently you can purchase four different shade duo's on Mally's website and on QVC's website. They don't have the Pink Satin shade listed just yet.
The usual pink metal compact from Mally. You open it up and on one side is a nice mirror and the other side has the blush duo. Each blush has its own pan/compartment that is replaceable.
Each 24/7 Professional Blush compact costs $35 and includes a duo-ended brush. You can buy it on Mally's website or on QVC's website.
Mally 24/7 Professional Blush Review:
I have to admit that I haven't used this compact just yet; mostly because I have some breakouts on my cheeks right now and just don't like to wear blush when that happens. Plus, I've been using her other blush pretty often and just didn't get around to this.
I do plan to try it out in the future but I'm not sure if it's the right product for me. I'm really not a cream blush person. However, this compact is more usable for me due to the cream shade being light enough to use as a highlight shade on my cheeks instead of a cream blush and then the powder side is pretty enough to use on its own.
I really do like Mally's products but I'll have to wait and see what I think of this one.
Now let me know what you think...
Do you own this blush duo? If so, what are your thoughts? If not, is this something you'd want to own?
