Mia Mariu Mineral Cosmetics

I love wearing makeup but don’t like to LOOK like I’m wearing a lot of makeup.  I want my skin to look flawless.  I hate when I put anything on my face that feels heavy or looks flaky.  I was introduced to mia mariu makeup and couldn’t wait to try it out and see how this mineral make up compared to the others I use.  I was asked to pick out $60 in product to try out.  Being my thrifty self, I had to make sure I got the best value for that $60.  Here’s what I got:

Perfecting Finishing Mineral Loose Powder Foundation 

I am very picky when it comes to foundation/powder.  I don’t like my face to look powdery and I don’t like when I can actually feel the powder on my face.  I want it to help my skin look clear, but don’t want anyone to know it’s there….if that makes sense.

The Mia Mariu powder didn’t only meet my expectations, but exceeded them! It goes on easily, you don’t notice it, but it covers all of my little freckles and dark spots that my face has.  I really love it.

It keeps my skin looking clear, fresh and oil free without me feeling it at all.  It doesn’t look flaky or powdery, just natural and perfect.

You will need a good brush for this.  I already had a kabuki brush that worked great, but if you don’t have one….be sure to get one!

Perfecting Finish Mineral Cream Concealer

There are times I get break outs or need to cover something on my face, so I need a concealer.  I haven’t used one in a long time, but always seem to need one.

The Mia Mariu concealer is in a cream form.  I did learn that less is more.  When I first tried it, I used too much and my skin looked like it was cracked and gross.  As I kept trying it, I learned that if I just put a tiny bit, less than I think I need, it works great.

Mineral Powder Bronzer

With my skin tone, I have found that bronzer looks better as a blush than a pinky blush.  I like the color of the bronzer across my cheeks and it seems to look like a more natural glow than pink.

The Mia Mariu bronzer is light and shimmery.  When I swept it across my cheeks you can see a little color, a little shimmer and I loooove it.  It is by far my favorite bronzer that I’ve tried yet.  I love the dewy look it gives my cheeks.

Intense Eye Liner

I always wear black eye liner.  I have for, uuumm…..ever.  I have been on the search for an eye liner that actually stays on me all day long.  I think my eye lids must get oily or something because it always wears off within a few hours.

I can’t say at the Mia Mariu is the perfect answer to my problem, but it did work longer than many other eye liners have.  It gives a nice, solid black line and stays put for several hours.

I do wish it was retractable, because I hate having to sharpen, although I also hate the blunt tip that many retractable pencils get.  I guess it’s no-win.  This one works well, isn’t hard and even better, it didn’t break when I sharpened it.
