I've been a big fan of Mia Mariu every since I first tried some of their amazing skin care products a few years back, as well as some of their lovely scented perfume (see my review on the the Magia perfume by Mia Mariu here).
Mia Mariu carries a full line of health and beauty products made from high quality botanical ingredients. Mia Mariu believes that health and beauty go hand in hand, so they strive to make the best products possible to give women healthy, innovative, and effective skincare and cosmetics that will really illuminate every woman's beauty from the inside out. Mia Mariu offers their customer beauty, balance and harmony.
I was thrilled to try out the Mia Mariu mineral cosmetics line. I've loved using their skincare so much, I knew that I would become a big fan of their cosmetics as well. I also have really loved using mineral cosmetics as I feel they give skin a more natural coverage, as well as seems to be healthier for my skin.
The Mia Mariu mineral cosmetics are made using Vitamins A, C, and E, to provide natural protection from the sun and environment. You also won't find any talc, oil, parabens, or fragrances in these fine cosmetics. This line is also suitable for all skin types!
When my Mia Mariu products arrived, I was so excited. I got to try out their mineral blush in Maria Bonita, the Mineral Eye Shadow Duo in Noche de Amor, black intense eyeliner, volumizing mascara and the Beso Hydrating lip gloss.
I applied my base as usual then pulled out my blush brush and applied the Mia Mariu Mineral blush in Bonita to my cheeks. What I first noticed was how highly pigmented this blush is. And the color is fabulous! It only takes a little bit of blush to deliver rich, velvety color to your cheeks. I love the pretty soft dewy pinky-coral this color leaves on my skin. It gave my skin an instant lift and made my skin look perkier and more illuminated. I love how completely natural this color looks with my natural beige skin.
In fact, I've previously been using a very popular blush before trying this Mia Mariu blush, and I was instantly won over by the Mia Mariu. The color is so much richer and the shade looks so much more natural on my skin tone, and totally makes my skin look healthy and happy. I've happily not gone back to my other brand since using this blush. I'm completely in love with this shade and how easily and quick it is to apply, because only a little bit of color goes a long way!
Next up, I tried the eyeshadow duo in Noche de Amor. I didn't realize when I ordered this that it's a purple and pink, I thought it was more of a grey and beige, but I was actually very pleased. I normally use a lot of pink on my eyelids anyway, but I found this shade of purple to be really great at making my blue eyes pop. The color looks very natural, which I love, but also gives my eyelids just enough definition to really make my eyes stand out.
Like the mineral blush, these mineral eyeshadows are very pigmented and a little goes a long way. I love that you barely have to get any on your brush and it will cover your eye completely, saving you lots of time when doing your makeup in the morning!
I don't normally use black eye liner because I find that they can be too harsh for my eyes, but this lovely kohl eyeliner provides just enough color without being over bearing. I found I could easily apply it lightly for less color, but if I wanted a more intense look, it was also easy to glide across the eye lid, leaving a fabulously intense black behind. I grabbed a q-tip and smudged around my eyeliner really well so I didn't have a harsh line. I love this for a more natural effect. The eyeliner also has great lasting power and doesn't smudge either, if you don't want it to! It stays put really well all day long too!
I was expecting a lip gloss since this is called the hydrating lip gloss, but it's actually in lip stick form, which I was really excited about. It is super hydrating like it says but it is easy to apply like a lip gloss but looks more like a lipstick, once on. Plus you don't get that stickiness like you would with a lip gloss.
I loved the shade I chose, beso. It's a soft pale pink, which I love on my lips. It looks completely natural and is super soothing to the lips. I love that it felt more like I was applying a rich lip balm to my lips then a lipstick. It's not drying at all. It feels rich and creamy and smooth once on your lips and has great staying power! It absolutely won't dry your lips out either and you don't need to reapply for a long time!
Last up was the Volumizing Mascara. This mascara is enriched with Vitamin B5 to give your lashes incredible volume and length, as well as intense color. This mascara is a little different then most I've used in the past. It's really lightweight and feels like it's not going to be thick and heavy enough to get the job done, but it does! You have to apply a couple of coats but the mascara really gave my lashes great volume and length! It also doesn't clump at all! Even on the second coat! I'm a big fan of this mascara and could certainly see myself using it for years to come!
Here is my complete look using my Mia Mariu Products. Here I have on the Mineral eyeshadow duo, black intense eyeliner, and volumizing mascara.
