Mía Mariú {Giveaway} – CLOSED

Disclosure: This could be a sponsored post or contain affiliate links (which means I earn a percentage of the sale), but all opinions are strictly my own.

I remember my first experience buying real make-up.  It was for my junior high showchoir, and we each had to buy the same colors of eyeshadow, liner, and lipstick so that we would all match on stage.  Before that, I would pick up cheap make-up at walmart, or I am embarrased to admit, even the dollar store.  With my new compact of high-end, (expensive), and shimmery make-up, my eyes were opened into the world of good quality make-up!  I started to see what makes the difference between excellent and poor cosmetics.  Based on my experience with some good and some pretty bad, I can give my Dandy stamp of approval on a new line of make-up called Mía Mariú!

mia-mariu-logo-300x180Mía Mariú focuses on healthy products that reflect themselves through youthful, beautiful, glowing skin and renewed energy and vitality.  Each product combines the highest quality botanicals, antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, and peptides.  A far cry from the el cheapo stuff you find at the dollar store (cringe!).

Every product Mía Mariú sells looks like it would become a favorite in my makeup bag.  I was attracted to the mineral foundations, eye shadow duos, intense eye liner, and luminous lip glosses.  I picked out three products, and am so pleased with each of them.  First, I was sent a sample of hydrating moisturizer to apply before the foundation.  I thought it had a great consistency, and a nice light feel.  It wasn’t greasy and it didn’t take a lot of rubbing to massage it in to my face.  The first product I tried out was some PERFECTING FINISH Mineral Loose Powder Foundation in Savanna.


It has a great amount of coverage, and doesn’t look clumpy at all in the container.  I appreciate the holed cover on top, since butterfingers over here has a tendency to drop her makeup all over the carpet.  I loved how it melted into my skin!  It glides on smooth and actually contains Vitamin A, C and E.  Next, I tried out a Loose Mineral Shadow Liner in Rosa.  I was attracted to the color as one that wouldn’t be obnoxiously noticeable at first glance–something I could wear on a daily basis and not look like date night.


It has a great shimmer to it, but nothing sparkly.  It is silky to apply and lasted all day.  My old makeup tends to slip into the creases of my eyes over time, and I sport a nice dark line above my lid.  Not my favorite look.  This liner was great, and stayed where applied, highlighting the upper accents of the space under my eyebrows.  This liner can also be used wet, and I’m excited to try that out for a thicker look.  The lid with holes on this little jar were a little too small for my liking.  I’m afraid to take it off because, again, I’m prone to dropping precious jars of cosmetics, but I think it might be necessary to get enough on my makeup brush in the amount of time I’d like.  To go with my liner, I also tried out Mineral Eye Shadow Duo in Luna de Miel!

141These eye shadows are made from pure minerals and luxurious color pigments.  Again, I was looking for a duo that would look natural and nothing too drastic for an everyday where.  This was perfect.  I’m planning on leaving it out on my makeup table as my stable until its gone!  It slides on with ease, blends well, and stays on for hours!  At the end of the day, my face looked like I had just done it.


The thought that kept entering my mind all day was, “Wow, it feels like I’m not wearing any makeup at all!”  I hate that ‘masked’ feeling of a thick, painted products that you feel every time you change your facial expression.  No clogged pores with Mía Mariú.  Behold the beauty of healthy products!

    This would be awesome to win. I can never justify to myself spending money on good make-up, so it would be great to be able to try some out.
