Mally Beauty Complexion Perfection Soft Focus Foundation

Press Sample


Sometime this summer my beloved Estee Lauder Double Wear foundation failed me. It seemed overnight it started looking thick and emphasized my dry skin and every line on my face, even with primer. No Bueno. So I was excited when the Mally Beauty Complexion Perfection Soft Focus Foundation ($38) arrived BUT I was skeptical because Mally foundations haven’t worked for me in the past and I hadn’t much about this one.

I’m happy to report my skepticism was unwarranted because I’m loving this foundation! Put Mally Beauty Complexion Perfection Soft Focus Foundation on your radar over 40 gals! It’s so featherweight it feels like a second skin yet provides medium to full coverage AND has an immediate skin smoothing effect!

This oil-free foundation glides on skin smoothly erasing all my age spots, fine lines, and wrinkles leaving my skin looking younger. The finish is as Mally would say ‘gorgois’. Now that I’m into my 6th decade (shhh don’t tell) I can no longer wear matte foundations, they highlight my dry skin and wrinkles but ‘dewy’ foundations can look greasy and wet. Mally Beauty Complexion Perfection Soft Focus Foundation has the most flattering finish!  It doesn’t settle into fine lines and wrinkles, yet is extremely moisturizing and has great coverage. This foundation combined with Mally’s Perfect Prep Neutralizing Primer (reviewed here) provides a nearly flawless complexion even for us waaay over 40 ladies. I use my beauty blender to apply– fingers would work too.

Available in five shades: Fair, Light, Medium, Tan and Rich. Light is a great match for me, Medium was a tad too dark. Soft Focus Foundation is housed in a pump tube. While I appreciate the pump, the tube is not optimal–it makes it hard to mix the foundation. The medium shade has separated somewhat and I found you can’t really shake it and you can’t mix by squeezing or you will waste product. The light shade didn’t do this so it wasn’t a problem but I thought I needed to mention it. The got 8-10 hours of wear out of it easily without a setting powder. It’s super easy to remove with Paula’s Choice Perfect Cleansing Oil (review coming soon).

For this look I used Mally Beauty Complexion Perfection Soft Focus Foundation in Light, and three products from the Mally Carefree 3-Pc. Set: Mally’s Perfect Prep Neutralizing Primer, Evercolor Shadow Stick Extra in Bliss and Blushing Brilliance Blush & Highlighter Wand in Fiesty/Fierce. I also used Soap & Glory Supercat black liquid eyeliner and Soap & Glory Thick & Fast Mascara. Lips are Mally H3 lipgloss in Tea Rose.

Have you tried any Mally Beauty foundations?

  • Kansas Bonanno

    Looks like it goes on so smooth! I don’t usually wear foundation because of the chunks but this looks like they have solved the problem, going to have to invest in this for sure!!

    • This is a very smooth foundation, it really smooths out lines and wrinkles.

  • Allison @neversaydiebeauty

    It looks great on you. I was just at Ulta checking out the BECCA full coverage foundation. Wish I had known about these so I could check ’em out as well. Next trip!

  • Kristina

    This looks like a great foundation and matches your skin perfectly! I sometimes have a hard time finding foundation to match my brown skin with yellow undertones.

  • Amy Downs

    I think you must have made a mistake when you said you’re in your sixth decade! I assumed you were around my age (47) from the way you look in your pictures! Whatever you’re doing is working, you look years younger!

  • I’ve never tried Mally foundation, but I think I need too. I looks lovely on you! It looks like it provides good coverage without looking cakey. You have that glow from within look that everyone wants!

    • I’m very impressed with this foundation!

  • Arlene

    Looks like this is a nice coverage and is smooth. It looks great on you, very natural looking!

  • Cassie Liz

    Love that bliss colour on you – your eyes look amazing! Well Mally is another brand I haven’t heard of before but I’m going to have to go on the hunt and see if I can find it here in Australia

    • They sell it on QVC, I think they have a UK version?

  • marciaf

    I don’t have this one but one of my favorite foundations is a discontinued Mally Mousse one. I was so sad not to find it again. This is a great match for you. The look is so pretty.

  • Shelley Polarbelle

    When I look at you, I see a firey 16 year old about to have a really good time. Your eyes dance and your skin just looks so amazing and soft.

  • I don’t think it would be enough coverage for me but I do think it would be lovely on my mom, who has amazing skin.

  • Dawn Rhodes Molero

    This looks so good on you! I don’t know if it’s the foundation or the blush shade….but it definitely works. It’s a fresh healthy look. I wouldn’t have even thought twice about these products but now I’m definitely going to look into them.

    • Everything is from Mally–check it out on QVC they have awesome deals on the kits.

  • I used to wear foundation everywhere. I’m amazed that I took it off to go to the gym. But I don’t wear it anymore, and I’m really happy now with my natural skin. But I can definitely remember what a great find it was to discover a foundation that made you feel really good. Glad you found one that works really well for you.

    • You are so lucky you can go without foundation!!

  • Jeanine @

    Oh I like it! I need to get a new foundation. I dont usually wear make up but I’m having girls nights more often that I think its time. I like this one!

    • Give it a try, you won’t be disappointed.

  • It looks great on you!!!

  • Emily Eileen

    This make up looks really nice and natural on you. I will have to check them out next time I am in the market for foundation.

  • Kelly Hutchinson

    I was surprised the light was such a close match to your skin tone! I am over 40, so I think the Mally Beauty Complexion Perfection Soft Focus Foundation would be great for me to try out.

  • Carolyn

    I am going to have to get some new foundation for the winter. I always change from summer to winter since my skin changes texture and color. I’ll keep this one in mind.

    • I do too, I think most people experience changed in their skin with the seasons.

  • The foundation looks great on you! It adds a touch of that youthful dewy glow and looks super flattering 🙂

  • Yasmin Ali

    Love it on you! I haven’t but I dont’ use foundation as much due to the fact that I have clear skin (thank god), but I do need to play more with eyeshadows

    • It’s great that you don’t have to wear foundation!

    I haven’t—I’ve actually been cutting back quite a bit on the makeup lately. This looks great on your skin, though! 🙂
