Mia Mariu Mineral Cosmetics (review & giveaway) US 11/4

I am pretty picky about my makeup. I do not put things on my face that make me look like I am wearing a lot of makeup. I like my makeup to be light, natural and easy to get off.

I had the opportunity to review a few makeup products from Mia Mariu. Here is a list of products I chose to review:

Let's start with the Lip Gloss. It is a pretty natural shade of pink and is very shiny. It lasts for about an hour but does leave a bit of stickiness behind. I really like that it lasts that long. Most of my lip glosses need to be reapplied every 30 minutes to stay shiny.

The Eye Shadow is also a natural shade. I am not too big on the bright colors because they just don't look good on me anymore. I love all of the color options for eye shadows offered at Mia Mariu. The eye shadow is very light weight. I had to apply a couple coats to get the look I was aiming for.

The Mineral Cream Concealer is similar to the product I have been using the past couple months, except it is in the container, not the stick form. I thought it did a great job evening out my skin tone and lightening up my dark under eye circles. A little of this goes a long way. I also used this one my nose, to lighten up some of my freckles.

The Volumizing and Lengthening Mascara is by far, my favorite product! This is the best mascara I have ever used! I experienced NO CLUMPS, whatsoever. This mascara really looks natural and lasts all day. I normally do not use black mascara (I prefer brown), but there is only the option for black. I would love to see them offer a brown mascara!

Over all, my experience with Mia Mariu was a pleasant one. I love the makeup and still use it. The prices are a little higher than what I am used to spending...but I know the mascara is definitely worth the extra few bucks! Of the 4 products, that is one I will most likely purchase in the future!

Here is a before picture and an after picture.
