Review Overview

This fragrance-free stick concealer is great for covering up dark undereye circles. It provides full coverage without the heavy, greasy, texture that commonly occurs with similar products.

For a stick concealer, the texture is surprisingly lightweight and creamy, allowing it to blend well. It sheers out easily if lighter coverage is desired and the soft satin finish looks like skin. The shade range isn't extensive, but there are suitable options for light to deep skin tones.

  • Fragrance-free.
  • Versatile, full to sheer coverage.
  • Blendable, lightweight texture.
  • Suitable options for light to deep skin tones.
  • None.
Brand Overview

Mally Beauty At-A-Glance

Strengths: Impressive concealers; the City Chick Smokey Eye Kit performs beautifully; Evercolor Poreless Face Defender is an excellent alternative to traditional face powder; some good lip color options; Volumizing Mascara; Evercolor Lasting Eyeliner goes beyond typical liquid eyeliners with outstanding staying power; good brow products.

Weaknesses: Couture Color Custom Blush and powder foundation can be difficult to use; potentially irritating makeup remover; the Perfect Prep Soothing Eye Gel is disappointing.

Mally Roncal is a celebrity makeup artist who has worked on some of the most famous faces in Hollywood, not to mention numerous spreads in fashion magazines. After much success as a makeup artist, Roncal launched Mally Beauty—her namesake line of makeup and limited skin-care products—with the guiding philosophy that "the things that make us different are the qualities that make us beautiful." That’s a great philosophy, but the question is: Are these quality products with a difference that will help you look and feel more beautiful?

As might be expected, Mally Roncal's celebrity cache created buzz when her line launched, and the chatter has led to a strong following on the QVC shopping channel, which is the primary home of her products. While Roncal knows how to sell a product (She is quite the cheerleader on air!) and she has worked with celebrities, that doesn't automatically mean all the Mally Beauty products are worth buying.

Although there are some well-formulated and innovative products to be found, Mally Beauty has a few misses. The majority of Mally Beauty's eye makeup and eyebrow products perform quite well, they feature a spectacular concealer with sunscreen and there are some good lip color options as well. Mally's Cancellation Conditioning Concealer and Evercolor Poreless Face Defender are top notch worthy of special mention.

On the flipside, Mally Beauty misses the mark with a few of the foundations, primers, and blushes we tried. The foundation we experimented with was especially disappointing because Mally Roncal is known for creating the illusion of perfect, dewy-looking skin, which her Ultimate Performance Professional Foundation didn't accomplish with our team.

We have to give Mally Beauty praise for including helpful application tips, demonstration videos, and full ingredient lists on the company website, and for their wonderful team who was more than helpful in sending products for The Paula's Choice Research Team to experiment with. There are some strong options to be found here, as well as others we would recommend skipping and our reviews will steer you toward what’s worth your time and money.

Not for dry skin

I have dry skin at 42 (and since 35) due to pain medications causing hormonal changes (loss of estrogen), and thus dry skin. I LOVE Mally, and own almost everything she shows on QVC (on air). The age rebel line, meaning her eye shadow and now the concealer too are much too drying. Her Age Rebel Concealer goes right my fine lines, accenting them,and it is so drying that it tugs on my delicate under-eye skin. I wish it was a creamier product since it's convenient + anti-aging! Too bad.

not so creamy or long lasting

I bought this product because it had a high review AND bc mally beauty does not test on animals. I really wanted to like it. However, it was not creamy, it was drying and it was not long lasting. I was gone after about two hours. I have vitiligo, and have no skin pigment, so my under eye circles are fairly dark. I purchased the fair. This product did not work well for me.
