I am a tinted moisturizer girl turned BB cream or CC cream girl of late. However, when I want to spiff it up, I do wear foundation. For me, at 55 years of age, I prefer a foundation that has light to medium coverage and leaves my skin looking fresh and flawless not cakey and completely covered. I also eschew powdery finishes as my skin is dryer in this second half of my life. So, achieving a radiant, almost natural look with my foundation is always my goal.
I was recently sent Mally Beauty Ultimate Performance Professional Foundation in the color tan to try. I have to say I was pleasantly surprised.
Here are the details about Mally Beauty Ultimate Performance Professional Foundation:
Mally’s Ultimate Performance Foundation is professional foundation that delivers long-lasting, perfect coverage that looks and feels natural. This cream foundation smooths on to conceal imperfections, even skin tones and minimize pores. The result is silky, satiny coverage that still looks like your skin, not makeup. It comes with a unique, buffed edge Japanese sponge that allows you to apply and blend perfectly.
I used Mally Beauty Ultimate Performance Professional Foundation both personally and professionally and was very impressed with its versatility from the set for a photoshoot, to the way it performed when I wore it.
I have worn Mally Professional Foundation on several occasions. The first being during New York Fashion Week where I had to look cute and I literally wore the foundation for hours and hours. Since then, I am worn the foundation on several occasions. When I’m out and about in professional capacity and I have to represent myself as a beauty expert in the best possible manner, I wear Mally Professional Foundation. Particularly if there are cameras present…
Mally Beauty Professional Foundation always has my skin looking flawless even if I don’t feel so gorgeois (as Mally herself would say). I like that a small amount of this creamy foundation goes a very long way. It has wonderful level of pigment, so that even when used under my eyes it covers my dark circles. YAY! Over the course of hours, I forget that I have foundation on. So I appreciate that even though this foundation formula covers extremely well doesn’t feel like I’m wearing full-on heavy-duty makeup.
I used this foundation professionally for models in various photoshoots, and for filming for the eHow Style Channel. It wore well under hot lights and the color match was perfect (rich).
I also love the packaging of Mally Beauty Ultimate Performance Professional Foundation. The luxe compact is in Mally’s signature color, pink, with a full-size mirror inside. And in day and age where mirrors in compacts are becoming extinct, or are so small that you can only see one eye at a time, it’s really a blessing to nearly blind 50 somethings like me that Mally Beauty has wonderful, thoughtful packaging. Also included in the package also is a genius applicator sponge. It’s thick and triangular with rounded edges and corners and makes application a breeze.
