Reveal Your Glamorous Look with Mia Mariu Review + Giveaway


Hello beauty babes and welcome! Today I am sharing a review of Mia Mariu's mineral beauty products. I have photos here for you to get an upclose look as well as a video demo of myself using each product so you can see for yourself how they apply. If you like what you see, you can also enter to win the complete set for yourself! Find the giveaway at the end of this post. The set includes one Mineral Blush or Bronzer (color of choice), one Mineral Shadow Duo (color of choice) or two Mineral Shadow Liners (color of choice), and one Hydrating Stick Gloss (color of choice) along with receiving a Volumizing Black Mascara and an Intense Black Eye Liner Pencil. 

I have reviewed their products before, here, and this is a brand that I really enjoy. Mia Mariu mineral colors contain Vitamin A, C and E providing natural protection from the environment. They are Oil, Talc, Paraben and Fragrance Free and are suitable for all skin types. 
Here are some swatches of the product colors I choose and am using in these photos and video review/demo and a list of the products names:
Blush: Maria Azucena
Eyeshadow Duo: Luna De Miel
Lipstick: Encanto
Black Eye Liner Pencil
Below you can read each product description and price, as well as my thoughts. If you have the time, please also watch the video demo to get a better idea of how they apply and look in the video!

Mineral Blushes ($17): A light velvety powder that sweeps on silky sheer color easily and evenly providing a natural blushed skin tone.  Its light-diffusing quality allows for a mistake-proof, flawless application as well as the color remaining true all day.

My Thoughts: It definitely does have a gorgeous light-diffusing quality! I absolutely love the way it looks on my skin and gives a gorgeous glow! When I wear this, I don't even need to wear a high-light, because it creates such a beautiful look and glow all on its own. You can really get an idea of what I mean in the video below!

Mineral Shadow Liners and Shadow Duos ($14-$19): Made with pure minerals and luxurious color pigments.  Their creamy powder texture provides an immediate release of intense luminous color with superior blending for a long-wearing, crease-resistant application.  When mixed with water, you can use it as a beautiful long wearing eyeliner.

My Thoughts: I choose the shadow duo and am in LOVE with the colors. Very pigmented, in these photos I am using the eye shadows without the aid of a primer. And still they show up very rich in color. They are also very long lasting.

Hydrating Stick Gloss ($15): A revolutionary hydrating product combining color and hydrating gloss in a stick form.  It has a buttery, creamy feel that nourishes your lips while delivering color in a sheer and sophisticated finish.

My Thoughts: I fully agree with the description. The color is sheer but gorgeous. I absolutely love how buttery and moisturizing it feels on my lips.

Intense Black Eye Liner Pencil ($11): A smoothly textured eye pencil that provides precise definition and easy, smooth application.  The pencil applies evenly without "dragging" or pulling the delicate eye area which produces a clean precise line without smudging.

My Thoughts: I personally prefer an automatic eyeliner, because I really don't like having to sharpen. However, that aside this is a really great liner. It certainly does glide on smoothly and easily without any pressure at all! You can see in the video demo how easily it applies without me having to do much work at all. 

Volumizing Mascara ($13): Extends and separates the thinnest, shortest, hard-to-reach lashes by lengthening each lash while delivering just the right amount of mascara without clumping.  The formula contains rich dark pigments to enhance lash color for maximum drama.  It is clump-free, fiber-free and is suitable for contact lens wearers.  Enriched with vitamin B5.

My Thoughts: Of all the products in this set, the mascara is the only one I didn't really enjoy. I didn't find this mascara to be volumizing or lengthening. It really serves to give a very natural look, which some of you may enjoy! My personal preference is for a more dramatic look from my mascara. The formula was very dry, which I dont usually mind, however I found that it was hard to get much product from the brush to my lashes. Again this is personal preference, but I prefer to really coat my lashes with a great amount of product and then work with it to make my lashes look thicker and longer - for a more drastic difference. This mascara made a subtle difference in my lashes for a very natural look. I do encourage you to watch the video demo to really see what I mean here.
