Mineral Makeup from Mia Mariu


 I am a woman so of course I love makeup but to be honest, I don't wear it nearly as often as I did before I had children. I used to have a set regimen that I did every morning as soon as I woke up but now that I have four extra little people to get ready in the mornings, I am usually the one that gets the least amount of time to get ready. In addition, I have sensitive skin so it's hard for me to find makeup that doesn't make my skin dry and itchy. I have tried  a couple of different mineral makeups but to be honest, I haven't been really impressed.......until now. I had the chance to do a review for Mia Mariu and I can honestly say without hesitation that it is the best makeup that I have EVER used.



I chose the liquid foundation, eye shadow and blush in the picture above from Mia Mariu. What stood out to me at first was the price.  Most mineral makeups will cost you hundreds and this was not the case with Mia Mariu. The Perfecting Finish Mineral Liquid Foundation in Vainilla is only $25. I also chose the Mineral Eye Shadow Duo Romance de Otono ($18) and the Mineral Blush Maria Azucena. ($17) What I can tell you already is that this makeup is going to last me a long time because a little bit goes a long way. I can cover my entire face with just a small drop of the foundation and it left my skin looking beautiful and flawless. It was so soft and silky feeling and it didn't break me out or dry out my skin. My husband rarely comments on my makeup but when he came home from work the first time I used the Mia Mariu products, he actually commented and told me how pretty I looked that day and asked me what I did different. That is HUGE to me after 12 years of marriage. Most eye shadows wear off by the end of the day but after 8 hours, my eye shadow hadn't smudged and was still as vivid and bright as when I first put it on. I was extremely impressed.

The other thing that I loved about their website was the Shade Finder. This helped me find exactly what shade I needed to get. I have light skin and sometimes it's difficult for me to order makeup online because I can't find the right shade but the one it matched me up with was PERFECT for my skin tone!
