Look of the Day with Mally Beauty

 Look of the Day with Mally Beauty: Earth Duo Matte Palette 
*Stay tuned for my Mally Valentine's giveaway to start soon!
"Earth" includes Earth a chocolate brown shade, and Sky, a vibrant blue shade

Product Information:

A duo of wearable and brightening matte eye shadows. The aerated texture of these eye shadows lies down a smooth film of luminous, stunning color, and stays weightless, flexible, and flawless over time. Wear the shadows alone or take the lighter shade and apply all over the lid from lash line to crease. Then, take the darker shade and apply it in the crease for beautiful definition. Retails $29.98 on

Includes 0.18-oz Modern Matte Eye Shadow Duo and brush applicator
Also comes in:
Sage: includes Fresh Meadow, a pale green shade, and Ivy, a hunter green shade
Sunset: includes Purple Haze, a lavender shade, and Pink Horizon, a peachy pink shade

The directions for these duos are to apply the lightest shade all over the lid with the darker shade used as a liner and crease shade. Since the blue isn't the best color on me, I switched it up a bit. These shades are versatile so you can use them in the way that best suits you. I found the brown to work best for me as a crease shade when paired with a complimentary shimmery taupe. I found the blue color to work best for me as a liner shade as you can see in the picture above. 
With just the duo matte shades
This is just one of those palettes that was frustrating to photograph alone. It appeared much better in person and was blended much better than it appears. But I still wanted to show you how the matte shades look alone. Again since I don't think the blue color is as flattering with my eyecolor, I applied it as a liner/crease shade while playing around instead of all over the lid. I will be pairing this with shimmery shadows as a personal preference. 

The brown matte in this palette is one that I know I will get a lot of use out of. It is a perfect brown matte color to act as a crease shade. This really deepened the appearance of my eyes and gave them an automatic more dramatic look. I'm not a huge fan of matte shades and I know Mally isn't either which is why she created these versatile duos. I found these to be really creamy for matte shades and the thing I was the most impressed with was how the brush picked up product. The dual ended brush is super soft and durable. It barely took a quick swipe to pick up the right amount of product. There was some minimal fall out. Longevity was really good and I think this will last you throughout the day no problem.

Yours In Trubeauty, 



  1. Not sure I could pull off blue but they both look so pretty!

  2. I am never dissapointed when I purchase Mally's products!

  3. I love those colors... The brown looks like it blended smoothly.

  4. I love how you found a way to make the blue shade work for you!

  5. Also just want to let you know I received an error message when trying to get my pre-entry to go through "Aw, shucks. We didn't get your entry. Plz try again." It didn't work a second time either.

  6. I think they look great!

  7. Awesome. It's always nice to find some soft and buttery matte shades. These don't look powdery at all :)

  8. They really aren't powdery which is refreshing for a matte shade.

  9. I really love how you ended up using that blue shade - since it can be harder to wear. Very creative! :)

  10. I saw you on LC forum so I came to see your blog, let me tell you that you´ve done a great job with it, please come visit and if you like it it would be great if we could follow each other there on LC, here on GFC or socials, what do you think? To support each other… let me know ok!

  11. Jeannie, I added an entry in for you since it didn't show up. Thanks for letting me know.
