Mia Mariu' Review and Giveaway




 In case you didn't know I love all things to do with makeup. I love trying different brands and products so I'm always searching online for new things to try. I recently found Mia Mariu', a Dallas based health and beauty company. Upon checking out the Mia Mariu' site I found that they had everything from skincare products to cosmetics and even a new fragrance. The folks at Mia Mariu' were kind enough to send me some great products to review plus they are giving one of my readers  a chance to win the same products in your choice of shades! This prize is worth $54!


 Before we get to the makeup I wanted to share with you a little about the company itself.They are a Dallas based social selling company that sells their products exclusively through their Independant Advisers and online.The Founder and CEO of Mia Mariu' ,Jeannie Price,has this to say about the company "Beauty and health go hand in hand and Mia's high performance products,formulated with the most natural ingredients available,help you achieve vibrant beauty and health inside and out. Each unique product fuses nature and technology by combining the highest quality botanicals,antioxidants,vitamins,minerals and peptides. The result? Healthy products that provide a perfect balance that reflects itself through youthful,beautiful,glowing skin and renewed energy and vitality,at an exceptional value. Reveal Your Unique Shade Of Beauty!"


 Now that you know a little about the company lets talk about what I got to review.They allowed me three products for my review,a mineral loose powder foundation,a foundation brush and a loose mineral shadow liner.

                                        Mineral Loose Powder Foundation in Marfil (4.3g) $18
 



I have pretty fair skin so I went with the Mineral Loose Powder in Marfil which is the lightest shade that they offer. I sometimes have a hard time matching my skin but this was a really great match for me.They say that this powder foundation is lightweight,long lasting, and breathable. I would have to say that I agree. I found that it is nice and light and blended into my skin covering it evenly without looking too "cakey".Once it was on it didn't feel heavy on my skin. It doesn't even feel like I have a foundation on, which is nice on those hot days.I don't feel like my makeup is melting off my face! I really like this mineral foundation and it comes in 8 different shades so there should be one that's right for you!



                                             No.22 Perfect Blending/Foundation Brush  $22



 I chose this No.22 Perfect Blending /Foundation Brush to go with the mineral foundation that I got.The brush is of good quality and constructed well but it was a little smaller than I was I used to.I gave it a shot and I found that it was good for applying the powder around and under my eyes and around my nose. It got in those small spaces really good but I found that I need to use one of my other bigger brushes for a better blend. This brush is a good size for your purse or travel bag and is suitable for touch-ups on the go.




                                           Loose Mineral Shadow/Liner in Aguamarina  $14


I chose the Loose Mineral Shadow/Liner in Aguamrina because I have a thing for green shadows and this one really caught my eye.I love this shadow!This is a sea foam green colored shadow. It goes on so nice and the color is nice and rich with a nice shimmer to it that kind of reminded me of a mermaid.A little bit goes a long way with this. It can be used dry as a shadow or you can use it wet as a liner.This is a great shadow/liner and it comes in 8 different colors as well.


                                                             My Look Using Mia Mariu' 



I have to say I really like all the stuff that I tried and look forward to trying some of the other great stuff Mia Mariu' has to offer! The prices are reasonable for the quality and size of the products.

If you would like the chance to try the products I have just reviewed enter for a chance to win.This contest is open to U.S. residents only(sorry). The winner will receive a No.22 brussh a Mineral Loose Powder in your choice of color and a Loose Mineral Shadow/Liner in your choice of color.Good Luck!!
