Mally Volumizing Mascara

Mally Roncal is the brains and beauty behind Mally Beauty, where she has taken her knowledge as a celebrity makeup artist and created products for everyone that will last all day and make you look your best.  Every time she's on QVC I watch her - she's so bubbly, passionate, and adorable!  I've been eyeing the Mally Volumizing Mascara on QVC for months,  and after reading numerous fantastic reviews I finally took the plunge.  Here's what makes this different:

"The combination of natural waxes and carefully-chosen powders gives lashes an instant boost. The plush combing brush works with the powders in the formula to help thicken lashes without clumping, giving you gorgeous volume that lasts and lasts."

The formula is very nice.  It is thick, but not gloppy.  The brush is quite substantial - it has tons of thick bristles that hold the mascara and help coat your lashes.  Also, the tip of the wand is fashioned so that you can use it to reach and coat individual lashes, especially those hard to reach ones on the inner corner and lower lashline.  Although this is a volumizing mascara, I found that it lengthens extremely well too.  

Below is a "before" and "after" side by side.  I used two coats of Mally, no curling of the lashes or primer.  The color is a great rich black, and makes the lashes so thick and long.  She does have an eyelash curler that has won numerous consumer awards that I really have wanted to try - it has a patented design that eliminates pinching and pulled lashes.  I may have to treat myself to that...

Now that I've tried Mally's mascara, I'm pretty sure I'll be going back for more to try out other products.  Have you tried any of their cosmetics?  I'd love to hear what you thought!
