Mally Beauty Cancellation Concealer System Review

The Muse has grown quite attached and fond of her Bobbi Brown Concealer Palette since hauling it many, many, many months ago. At first I wasn't sure I loved it but now I have unquestionable admiration for it. I have many, many, many concealers and the one I reach for daily is the Bobbi Brown Concealer Palette. The combination of concealer and finishing powder makes my woes into smiles! It conceals dark circles, fine lines, and all my other problems with a quick swipe of my brush! Loves it!

Recently I came across the Mally Beauty Cancellation Concealer System on QVC for $35 USD and it's quickly become holy grail material.

Make the jump read on about the greatness of this three piece kit!

Mally Beauty Cancellation Concealer System excels and appeals in just about every way imagination. Fab packaging, amazing price, and awesome quality. What more could a girl want?

First of all let's dig on the price.

For $35 USD you'll get one cream concealer, one setting powder, one dual ended brush (full size), and a pink pouch to store it all in. I spent over $60 USD on the Bobbi Brown Concealer Compact and I'll repurchase once it's gone however if you really can't afford $60 bucks at the moment or don't even want to consider shelling that much over for concealer I do so highly suggest nabbing one of these kits! You get much more product plus a full size brush and a cute carrying case...hello cheap anyone?

The packaging is absolutely adorable and appeals to my girlish good nature. The pink pooch has a velvet like feel and a snap closure. Snap it open to reveal a loop for holding your brush and two pouches to store each compact. Sweet! The compacts are metal and come in silver and pink colors, one of each. The brush matches with the cream concealer as these are both pink in color where as the powder has a silver compact. I thought it was rather strange and felt like the silver compact somehow didn't match with the rest of the theme but I got over it.

The entire trio works virtually the same way Bobbi Brown's Concealer Palette does aside from the fact that Bobbi's version has three separate concealers for mixing and matching. Brush a bit of the cream concealer on and pat your powder on to set! Simple, done, and just as you would with your BB version. I love having three color options to cocktail with my Bobbi Brown version but I honestly don't mind in the least this has one color option. That's perfectly fine as it does the job well enough with any other colors available.

The cream concealer is lovely. It's creamy, moisturizing, and conceals well without being heavy, creasing, fading, or causing a major mess. It does not have the same consistency as Bobbi's version however. I noticed it was lighter and actually blended a bit better because it didn't have that ooeey gooey formula that Bobbi's sports. I got the lightest option available however there are four shade choices in total so I do believe you're bound to find a suitable match for your skin type. I actually felt like the light version was too light but I don't mind as I like my concealer to be a shade down from my skin tone to brighten my eyes up. I don't have severe dark circles but I do have puffy eyes and a bit of a tired look and I felt this was plenty of coverage for those problems. In regards to darker circles you may or may not need something more....I think it'll do just fine with darker circles as it is quite pigmented but results vary from person to person.

The powder this comes with isn't quite as silky as the one that Bobbi Brown's compact comes with but that doesn't make it any less of a good product. It goes on well, brightens the eye area up beautifully, and doesn't crease or age my eyes. I find applying powder under my eyes makes me look decades older this does not do that. I like that it not only sets my concealer for all day coverage but also offers a brightening around my eye area.

Finally the brush included is ideal for application. It's a dual ended brush which has a blending style brush on one end for the powder application and a concealer brush on the other. Both work great at performing the duty of applying the powder and concealer. Bobbi has the same style brush although this concealer brush is a bit bigger and more dome shaped. I like the blending brush for applying powder...this was a trick I learned with the BB palette and have really embraced. I find a bushy, full blending brush is ideal for picking up powder and applying a thin layer to eyes without making a mess or applying too much.

The concealer lasts pretty much all day without creasing, fading, or creeping into fine lines. It offers fantastic coverage, gives me a flawless look, and creates the illusion of plenty of sleep. I did a little test and wet my arm and proceeded to rub it with a washcloth, you can see the results below and the concealer actually held up very well!

All in all I think the Mally Beauty Cancellation Concealer System is a fabulous find and I'm Muse Approving it for purchase. I highly suggest grabbing one for yourself! It has a 4 out 5 rating on QVC and just general does what it promises with a really nice price tag to match!

Count the Muse impressed! I love it and think it could be holy grail material, have to use it a bit more before I decide but it's well on it's way there!

You are such a sweetie! Thanks a lot, but I´ll stay with BB concealer for now, but I hope I can still take you up on that offer of a cp when the need arises (and it will sooner rather than later).
Hugs and Kisses,

I have really dark under eye circles, would this cover them without being too heavy? Have you ever tried the Eve Pearl Salmon concealer? I've heard good things about it and was thinking about ordering it online 'cause they have 20% off and free shipping on internet orders. What do you think/recommend?

hi c

I honestly can't say. I don't have heavy duty dark circles so I'm not sure. I can say it's pretty nicely pigmented. I haven't tried eve pearl salmon concealer....if I get one I'll review it here ;)

for heavier coverage see some of my other reviews as I def did a ton of reviews for concealers :)

hope this helps!
