Mally Beauty Review

Happy Cold and Windy Friday!!! Can you believe it's already February and Valentine's Day is tomorrow? What are your plans for the weekend? Today I will be reviewing Mally Roncal's book Love, Lashes And Lipstick. My Secrets For A gorgeous, Happy Life and Mally Beauty Pro-Tricks Correcting Palette.

Love, Lashes and Lipstick. My Secrets For A Gorgeous, Happy Life

I asked for this book for Christmas and read it in two days!! I couldn't put the book down! This was also the book for the Birchblogger Book Club for January. I opted out of receiving this book again since I already had it. This book is written by Mally Roncal, makeup artist and creator of cosmetic line Mally Beauty. I follow her on Instagram and Twitter and she is just so inspirational all the time and always has an amazing outlook on life. This book took us through her life growing up, how she broke into the industry, how she started Mally Beauty and so many tips and tricks. A quote that had me drawn in from the beginning of the book was "Because beauty isn't just about mascara and concealer; it's about who we are and how we see ourselves". There is always this big debate on why women wear makeup in the first place, why do we wear it so much, we must not like ourselves because we wear it and we should be happy with our natural face. Makeup is an expression of yourself and everyone wears it for a different reason. I really loved reading about her upbringing. Her parents really instilled some amazing values and morals in her life. Her mother had such an amazing outlook on life and taught her so much before she lost her at an early age. That whole chapter about Mally losing her mother and everything had me in tears. I loved how her mother saw the good in everyone and never had a negative thing to say about anyone. I wish more people were like that in this world. Another quote that really stood out to me is "What makes you different makes you beautiful. Embrace who you are, what you are, the gifts that GOD gave you".

I loved how Mally just took chances and followed her passion for makeup. She didn't try to change for anyone and stayed true to herself. I love how she stayed positive and had a great attitude about everything. I had no clue that she did makeup for Beyonce and Jennifer Lopez. She also shares so many makeup tips and tricks like how to get J.Lo's glow and the 5 minute face.

Overall, this is a book that you need to have in your library. It is such an inspirational and positive book. You can learn so much from this book about life and makeup. Mally is such an amazing person and such a good role model for young girls to look up to. Her story shows that being yourself and having a positive outlook on life can take you places and you will have success.

Pro-Tricks Correcting Palette

I was on Twitter one day and saw Mally Beauty was having a giveaway for this palette. You just had the retweet their tweet to enter. I took a chance and was surprised that I won! At the time, I had absolutely no clue how to highlight and contour. You hear that term everywhere and there so many palettes out now just for that! This palette did sit for a while and I watched a lot of YouTube to understand how to use it. I finally got around to using it and I love it.

This palette is to help you highlight and contour like a pro. I got my palette in the shade Deeper and it comes with two colors to highlight and conceal with and one for contouring. This palette contains cream products and here is a picture of the inside of the palette.

This palette is so easy to use and they blend so well. The cream products are so smooth in texture and just glide on your face. I mainly use the middle shade for highlighting and of course the darkest shade for contouring. I really feel more comfortable highlighting and contouring now and can hopefully do it like a pro someday. This palette retails for 40.00 and comes in two shades, lighter and deeper.

So that is it for my Mally Beauty review. Have you read her book? Tried any products from Mally Beauty? What were your thoughts? Comment below and let me know. There will be another post going up after this one with an announcement. Have a great weekend!!

I really feel like a parent now. I was putting Valentine's together for my son's class and going to his party later today! He was so excited this morning!

I'm looking forward to seeing some stuff from the NBA All-Star weekend. Kinda sad that football season is over already.


  1. That looks like a nice contour kit. I really want to try cream contouring products.

    1. It really is Tanya, I really like it. There are so many highlight and contour kits out there! Thanks for stopping by!!

  2. I knew that Mally did Beyonce's makeup once upon a time in her career. I've actually seen her a few times on daytime talk shows like "The Wendy Williams Show" and she does such an unbelievably good job of making makeup application look effortless - like anyone can do it. I like that the book isn't all about makeup and she fused some of her upbringing and back story in it as well. Good review.

Happily Ever Johnson: Registries, Rings and Things

It is crazy how fast this wedding is approaching! I can't believe it is almost February and June will be here before we know it! We have done so much with wedding planning and trying to make sure we have everything covered. First we started with finishing our registries. We started them but it just didn't feel complete. Earlier this month we attended a Sip and Scan event at Macy's. They had representatives from different brands such as Mikasa, Kitchen Aid and All Clad to answer any questions about products and to help you pick out the things you would like to put on your registry. They had a DJ there, passed hors o'derves and mocktails.

Here we are with the scanner having registry fun lol

We didn't have our formal or everyday dinnerware on the registry and finally picked those out. It was hard trying to decide what to go with. For everyday, I was looking for something that was durable since we have a 5 year old and dishware that was going to last. For our formal di…

Book Review: Dreams Are Built Overnight

Can't believe my birthday is next week, next Monday to be exact! I just want to have a nice, relaxing day. Today I am bringing you another book review (I know, two in one week lol)!

I have to say, I really proud of this guy and everything that he is doing now. I actually went to elementary school with David and he was a pretty cool person(and still is lol). Before this book, he started a company called Sleep Is 4 Suckers which sells apparel with a message behind it. David also expanded into motivational speaking and is a pretty dynamic speaker. I really wanted to support him and read this book because I was really drawn to the title of it.

I honestly did not want to put this book down when I started reading it. I read this book every free moment I had because I really wanted this information to sink in. You can really visualize what David is saying in this book and really picture the message he sharing. He really does drop a lot of amazing knowledge, tips and advice in this book.
