Mia Mariu Mineral Makeup Review and Giveaway
It's kind of ironic that when I was younger and had that youthful complexion I spent more time thinking about high quality makeup, and since I worked full time, it was rare that I left the house without it. Now, with three boys and living on such a small budget, makeup has kind of been on the back burner for me, but I definitely need it more now than I ever did when I wore it daily.
I was so excited when I was approved to do a review and giveaway of the Mia Mariu products. They have so many beautiful choices in makeup and skincare that I had a very difficult time in choosing. Because of sun spots on my face, I felt like I needed a concealer most of all, and I decided to try the Mineral Cream Concealer in Miel. I love how lightweight and long-lasting it is, and it doesn't take much to even out the tone of my skin.
I also ordered the hydrating stick gloss in Caricia. I was pleasantly surprised by how silky and smooth it feels upon application - and it doesn't dry out my lips like other products often do. This color is more pink than I expected, but I love soft look it creates. The final product I chose is the Mineral Eye Shadow in Rosa Marquesa. I like that the shadow doesn't seem to fade throughout the day - it stays put. The color seems very natural to me, and the best part? It doesn't irritate my sensitive eyes or bother my contact lenses.
Below you can see the before and after pictures. The only product I used besides the Mia Mariu products pictured above was a little mascara. The look itself came together so quickly - it only took me about 3 minutes! I did use my own eye shadow brushes instead of the ones provided. Mia Mariu offers a wide assortment of makeup brushes as well.
Now the best news? One lucky winner will win one of each of the products above! Not only that - but the winner gets her choice of colors as well! If you'd like a chance to win, just enter through the Rafflecopter below. Good luck!
