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.
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 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.
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!
