New and Exclusive Limited Edition Collection: MALLYWOOD at Ulta

What a wonderfully fun Limited Edition collection from the delightfully charismatic make up artist to the stars, Mally Roncal. Mally has made it easy for us to look fresh faced and glowing by using these four products below.

Welcome to Mallywood! This is the place where all things are fun, sassy, gorgois and of course… PINK! The new Mallywood Collection will make you feel and look like a Hollywood star. 

Inspired by Mally’s life as a celebrity makeup artist, the new collection infuses her knowledge, expertise, and skills into every product, allowing all Mallynistas to achieve the perfois red carpet glam look!



Each item in the collection truly embodies Mally’s persona- dazzling, bold, and vivacious. In a sea of black compacts, the pop of pink packaging stands out amongst the rest. 


Available exclusively at Ulta, the Mallywood Collection includes:

Mallywood Eyeshadow Palette: This perfect mix of shades combines velvety smooth texture pops of color with everyday shimmer, glitter, and mattes for a fun-take on Mally’s hero Muted Muse palette. Create any number of looks and go as bold with color as you dare!

MALLY TIP: Starting with a clean lid, use an Eyeshadow brush and take the shadow of your choice and lightly dust onto your lid. Blend shadow from lash line to crease. To create a look using more than one eye shadow shade, apply the lightest shade directly onto your lid. Then, take the deeper shade and apply it to your lash line and crease. Blend to soften any harsh lines.

PRICE: $29

Smoky Mama! Mascara: This must-have mascara is essential for creating Mally’s signature no-fuss natural smoky eye. Teeny, tiny bristles reach every lash, root to tip, and the soft, black formula blends out easily for an effortless look.

MALLY TIP: Apply on the top lash line as usual. As you apply to your bottom lashes, gently press the wand softly from side to side and barely touch the skin beneath them.

PRICE: $20

"You know that amazing look you get the next morning when you accidentally sleep in your makeup? (I know, you would NEVER do that!) As a celebrity makeup artist, I have always been known to create my own products on set to create the look that I want. It was always so hard to replicate that smoky look and make it look believable. I created a way with something you would never expect: Mallywood Smoky Mama! Mascara! My secret is to take a regular mascara wand and trim the bristles down so far that you could barely see them." – Mally

Wazza Wassup! Ombre Highlighting Trio: This ombre palette will help you create the perfect, streak-free highlight for a flawless and natural look with every use. Each palette includes: Opaque Cream Soft Gold Highlight, Mid-Tone Champagne Highlight, Intense Silver Pop Highlight.

MALLY TIP: First, take the creamy low level shimmer and apply it on your cheekbones and anywhere you want a natural glow. Next, take the medium highlight and apply that on top of the cream. Finally, take the strong pop and tap that on the highest points of the ombré.

PRICE: $32

"How do you create a truly natural highlight like you just "woke up like this?" and say "Wazza wazzup!?" like my daughters do? I call it the Mallywood Wazza Wazzup! Ombre Highlighting Trio and it's super easy to build this modern look to lift the face and create a dewy complexion!" – Mally

Mallywood Highlighting Blush: Mally’s go-to blush- this soft pink blush and highlighter in one provides a buildable flush of color with iridescent shimmer. The compact’s unique “wave” pressing technology allows for all shades to blend seamlessly together, creating one perfect, universal tone.

MALLY TIP: Swirl your brush all over the highlighting blush and apply from the apples of your cheek to the highest point of your face.

PRICE: $28

A Favorite of Mine: Parisian Cult Product Collosol

Are you a fan of Collosol? I am in LOVE with this product. It leaves my skin looking both radiant and super clean. I can't get enough of it. I would bathe in it, if possible.

If you are a fan of Westworld as I am – I have to admit last Sunday’s episode left me feeling bemused.

One thing I know for sure is their skin looked clean and radiant! Westworld makeup artist Rachel Hoke has been using Parisian cult product Collosol everyday on set.

Collosol has been a cast favorite on Westworld season 2. The shows shooting locations often contain elements such as dirt, wind, heat along with character makeup. Collosol has been the product in the makeup trailer that the cast asks for at the beginning day for makeup prep along with the end of the day for clean up. Evan Rachel Wood and Thandie Newton use the product every day they work. It’s a perfect cleanser for mid day makeup removal for touch ups.”




So now is the daughter a host too? If is she is perhaps all the hosts have made a recent trip to Paris to for skin programming… I guarantee it is not only a memory!
