I’ve been testing the Mally Beauty Ultimate Performance See The Light Concealer in Medium. It’s supposed to give you a “baked makeup” look. Does it live up to its claims?
Claims: “Looking to crack the code on baking your makeup to give skin a lifted look while concealing dark circles and spots? Mally created this pre-baked, invisible finish concealer to help you See the Light! Consider it a shortcut to Mally’s best beauty secret: the color correcting formula evens skin tone as the texture blends seamlessly to an invisible finish. And, because Mally believes in doing the heavy lifting for you, she’s formulated this creamy concealer to melt into your skin upon contact – leaving you with a baked makeup look, instantly.”

Disclosure: Press Sample
This concealer has a very creamy consistency, which dries down to a comfortable, natural matte finish. It’s richly pigmented, so a little bit goes a long way. You don’t want to use too much product, or it will look cakey, which is not exactly the “baked” look we’re going for.
It can be tricky to apply, and honestly, I didn’t like it at first because when I tried using my fingers and a soft dome brush, it ended up looking a bit streaky and patchy. But with a damp makeup sponge, it blended beautifully and gave me that baked under eye look that isn’t too harsh or heavy. I just dot it on directly under my eyes, and then blend away in a quick stippling motion.
Overall, I’m happy with its performance and staying power. It definitely lives up to its claims.
