Mally Blush - pics, swatches, review of two shades

Hello, Beautiful!

I own two of Mally's blush singles, which I've swatched & reviewed in the past. I wanted to update the swatch photos of these blushes. For me, Mally's blushes are now one of the least used products from her line that I own. It's not that they're awful blushes, because they're good blushes, but they aren't amazing either only because after using her Effortless Airbrush Highlighter & Blush compact I know she can make a better blush; I love the formula of that blush and find myself using it more and more.

Check out my pics, swatches, stats and review...

Mally Blush
Shade: Mally's Glow
Shade Description: A warm bright pink with a satin finish.

Mally Blush
Shade: Plum Pretty
Shade Description: A rosy plum with a satin finish. This shade goes on much lighter than it looks in the compact. In person, this looks more plum.


Both Shades:

Basic stats for Mally's Blush:
Formula: pressed powder
Coverage: buildable
Wear: average
Shade Range: available on Mally's website in 9 shades 
Container: square metal pink compact; mirror on one side, refillable blush compact on the other 
Cost/Availability: $18 each (full sized - 0.13 oz). Available on Mally's website and on QVC's website.
My Rating: 3 out 5 kisses

These are pressed-powder blushes.

You'll get sheer to medium coverage, but you can build to the color level you desire. For me, Plum Pretty had less pigmentation than Mally's Glow.

Average blush wear.

Shade Range:
Nine shades available on Mally's website.

A square pink metal compact. One side has a mirror and the other is a replacement blush pan.

Each blush costs $18 and is available on Mally's website or on QVC's website.

Mally Blush Singles Review:
Don't get me wrong, I love Mally, but these blushes don't stand out like her Effortless Airbrush Highlighter & Blush Compact does.

The shade Mally's Glow is a better blush as far as pigmentation goes. Plum Pretty doesn't have much pigmentation, which is good if you like a sheer blush. Mally's Glow is actually a pretty color, but for some reason I never use it.

I would not recommend these blushes only because I would recommend her Effortless Airbrush Highlighter & Blush Compact instead.

Now let me know what you think...
Do you own one of her blushes? If not, is this something you'd want to own? What shade do you like best? Discuss below in the comments. You can also email me with any questions/comments.


  1. very beautiful color
    Thank you for the review

  2. First of all LOVE your blog! I am a polish addicit and found your blog while looking at your wonderful mani's saw this post on Mally blush. I just recently started using Mally products, and I adore them! The only blush I use is Mally's Baby-it was in the perfect pallete compact. I love it compared to other brands.But the Effortless Airbrush sounds Great. Keep up the great posts :)

  3. @ Auntheathee: Welcome to my blog! If you like Mally's regular blushes (the ones in this post) you'd probably adore her Effortless Airbrush Blush & Highlighter duo. Seriously is one of my favorite blushes ever! You just need to feel them to see how luxe they are. She also just came out with new blushes (based on her face defender); I haven't tried them out (yet) but I'm sure they rock!
