Mia Mariu Makeup Review

by Wren on January 14, 2013

I have never been a girlie girl, but I have wanted to be one. I find that I have a hard time picking out makeup and having it look nice. So I have started in the past few months to attempt to wear makeup when I can to give me that extra feel good. I tend to just feel a bit better about myself when I wear makeup. I have been trying out a lot of makeup products recently and there are a couple of products that stand out above the rest. Recently I was given the chance to review a couple items from Mia Mariu, and I was so excited. I ended up picking a powder foundation, loose powder eyeshadow, and luminous lip gloss.

Perfecting Finish Mineral Loose Powder Foundation Marfil

I have never tried powder foundation before and was sorta skeptical about it covering what I needed to. I am lucky enough to have pretty clear skin, but I tend to always have an uneven tone. Plus with liquid foundation with my glasses after a few hours I would have these obvious spots on my nose. So I was hopeful, when I put the powder on my face I was blown away! It did make my skin look even and after a couple hours I did not have those obvious foundationless spots on my nose. So to me that was a obvious choice. To make things even better, I did not have to use a lot of the product on my face to get good coverage.

Loose Mineral Shadow Liner Azabache

Loose powder eyeshadow is a foreign concept to me, but I was anxious to give it a try. I was surprised with the different ways you could use it, not to mention it did give me better color on my eyes then I have ever had before. I even was able to use some wet and use it as an eyeliner, which I found was amazing. I chose a darker color, I wanted something dramatic to try. I usually go for neutral tones, but I was not disappointed it was great. Plus I know it will last a long time, which is another plus in my book.

Luminous Lip Gloss Dulzura

Never am I without some form of chap stick or lip gloss, so this product was a cinch for me. I loved it and the color I chose was a nice soft color that complimented the look. I figure you have a dark dramatic lip or dark dramatic eyes… to much of either and you got just to much going on, on your face. It glided on nicely and lasted a while, which I was amazed at. Usually lip gloss I am reapplying over and over, but with this I only found myself adding more once in a while.

I went from a girl who shys away from foundations to one that puts it on almost daily when going out! The lip gloss I found to be an everyday item as well! I love the eyeshadow and if I had picked a more neutral color I think that would be a daily thing as well, for now I use it when I am dressing up. I just can not get over the way these products are. I hope that you take the time to go to the Mia Mariu website and see what they have to offer, you won’t be disappointed!

The only loose powder foundation I have ever used was a cheap drugstore brand. This sounds WAY better! I also love lip gloss. :-)

I seldom if ever wear make up but have been trying to more and more. I really need some new stuff.

Ive never had too much luck with any loose powder cosmetic except finishing powder or a bronzer. Loose powder eyeshadow was a a disaster lol, but it’s fun to try new products and practice.

I also fall into the “not girlie, but wanna be” category. I wanted a little girl to put ruffled bloomers onto, instead I got 2 boys with whom I ride 4-wheelers, climb trees, and play lots of video games. It’s awesome, but it’s the exact opposite of girlie. I love makeup that can look good without requiring a Masters Degree in Art. Mia Mariu makes some beautiful products!

I go out in public so little. The high lights of my month are my monthly Dr’s appts and trips to the grocery store or local fast food joint. So I rarely wear makeup at all. However, after reading about Mia Mariu, I would love to try some of their products and maybe start taking better care of myself.

Yes! As of recently, I find I really enjoy wearing foundation and more makeup than I used to. Because my technique has gotten better, I find it so fun to experiment with different eye makeup looks every day! I’ve always loved wearing lip glosses but I’ve gotten more daring by adding deeper, sexier colors to my collection!
