New! The Reformulated Mally Evercolor Shadow Sticks

Reformulations. They can either have you jumping for joy or shaking your head in bewilderment. As a fan of Mally Beauty, I’ve always been extremely impressed with each product I’ve tried. And I wondered if the reformulated Mally Evercolor Shadow Sticks, $25, could live up to the quality of the original.

Would the shadow sticks work even better? Would the reformulation make any difference? Would I wish I had hoarded the old sticks?

First, I’m curious as to the reason behind the change. According to the limited information I received, the reformulation was meant to provide more hydration. This would also mean the sticks would have additional anti-aging benefits. If my eye makeup can keep my eyes feeling hydrated and looking younger, I’m on board.

As much as I love the new addition to the formulation, would it have any affect on the smudge-proof, transfer-proof, crease-proof or bullet-proof qualities of the Evercolor Shadow Sticks? I’m happy to report, it had no effect. These shadows still perform beautifully. The only change is that instead of having 45 seconds of playtime to blend or blur, you now have only 30 seconds before the color is locked in place.

Out of the ten shadows in the collection, I was sent two to review, Shimmering Mauve and Champagne. Champagne is a shimmery pale gold while Shimmering Mauve is a shimmery bronze. They both glide on like butter and are easy to build or smudge out. They also have great lasting power and don’t crease or transfer, with or without primer.

Of the two colors, I would say Champagne is my favorite. I like how I can quickly run it over my lids or in my inner corners to brighten my eyes, especially on more minimal or natural makeup days.

I was curious to see what the other shadows in the line looked like, since both Shimmering Mauve and Champagne have shimmer in their formulation. I couldn’t really find anything online, so I visited my local Ulta. I stealthily took a picture of the display on my phone and swatched a few of the other shades. It does seem that the other shadows in the collection also have some type of shimmer to them, but nothing too overpowering.

Overall: The newly reformulated Mally Evercolor Shadow Sticks, $25, is an improvement on the old formulation. The shadows are creamy, long-lasting, and easy to use. They keep your eyes feeling hydrated, without any irritation. They are definitely worth checking out, even at $25 a piece. My only complaint is with the packaging, for the price, it feels a bit cheap. I prefer the old packaging, which felt more substantial and didn’t show every little finger print like the new chrome look.

    Let’s see. I think I like the Mauve a little better. That would be more my tone. Either one looks great though!

  2. TheNewClassy says:

    These are some really gorgeous colors. I might have to try some of these out for spring! Thanks!

  3. I always get scared when companies change a product that I love! I’ve never a shadow stick before, but I’ll have to pick one of these up.

  4. I picked up the new Mally set from QVC, and it had two of the shadow sticks – Moonlight and Quartz. I didn’t even realize they were a new formulation! I only swatched them on my hand, though – very shimmery, also, but I like that. I thought the chrome packaging was just something for this set. Good to know!

  5. These do not budge!

  6. I don’t really use eyeshadow pens or sticks, but it’s definitely convenient and efficient. The colors are nice and I’m glad they improved the quality of their product.

  7. I didn’t knwo they made these changes. They’re very pretty and it’s nice that they’re so long-lasting.
