I have been looking for a full coverage foundation for awhile now. In the summer I mostly use tinted moisturizers but in the winter I like a little more coverage. However, I don't like that cakey look or anything too heavy. This seems to be a little difficult with full covearge foundations. I recently was given a chance to try out a couple of products from Mia Mariu. I have read many wonderful reviews about this company so, of course, I jumped at the chance. Mia Mariu sales high quality, Botanical based Skin Care Treatment, Nutritional Supplements, Mineral Make-Up, Hand crafted make-up application tools, and fragrances. With all the awesome products to choose from, this was a very hard decision but I decided to try a couple products from their make-up line. My first choice, of course, was the foundation. They have three different types of foundation: Mineral liquid Foundation, Mineral cream foundation, and Mineral loose foundation. They all look incredible but I went with Cream foundation. I couldn't wait to try it out, hoping this would become my new favorite (winter) foundation. Guess what? Yay!! This is it!! This is everything I was looking for! It is very light, It doesn't even feel like I have on make-up when I am wearing it. It certainly doesn't look cakey at all and the coverage is flawless!!
As you can see the Mia Mariu Mineral Cream Foundation is a very generous size (10g) and I love the compact, It is so easy to just toss in my bag and go. This oil-free hydrating formula provides long wear, is water resistant and has luminous buildable covearge with perfectly balanced color pigments proven to meet skin tones without ash tones, opaqueness, or mask-like effect, just a natural perfectly matched rediant tone. Helps improve the look of problem skin like rosacea, acne, and discoloration. Contains green tea extract, vitamin A, C and E
*** The cost of the Cream mineral foundation is $23
It comes with it's own applicator and a fabulous mirror to make your on-the-go application a snap. It glides on effortlessly and covers all my imperfections with no problem and like I stated before it is so light on my face. It makes my skin feel super soft and it doesn't have all those nasty chemicals clogging up my pores. My search is defintely over. This is everything I have been looking for in a foundation. I do want to try out the loose foundation , Concealer, and Mineral Primer ( I am hoping Santa reads my blog too!) I am also dying to try out their Bronzer and Blush. I know, I know....I have a long wish list, but you will too after you try out these amazing products!
OK now, I also got to choose another fabulous product from Mia Mariu to try out. This was another very hard choice, with my long wishlist I have and all but.... I decided to go with the Mineral Loose Shadow. They have soooo many amazing colors to choose from but I went with Mora. I thought this would be the perfect color for a smokey eye and boy was I right!!
**** The cost of this Mineral loose shadow is $14
There was just no way to take a picture that would do this justice! It is incredible and is the perfect color for a beautiful smokey eye. It's made with pure minerals and super lux color pigments. The thin silky formula provides long lasting coverage while gliding on softly and easily. Build color intensity and blend effortlessly. Apply as an eye shadow, Use a petite brush, like Mia Mariu's petite detail eyebrush #18, to highlight your accents. You can also use wet to create your own custom liner, Mia Mariu's precision eyeliner brush #25 would be perfect for this!
I love this color. I have had so much fun creating different looks with it. I think this is a perfect neutral color for all skin tones!! If you want to try out their loose shadows, this would be a perfect one to try!
Verdict: I love both of these products! I defintely made the perfect decision with them both. The foundation is everything I hoped it would be. They have a large selection of colors sure to match every skin tone and the price is compariable to other foundations that itsn't near the quality of this one. The eye shadow is perfect. Highly pigmented and will last along time. Again, there is a large selection of colors with this one and the price is very good for the quality and amount of product you get. I highly recommend this to all of you guys and can gurantee you will fall in love with Mia Mariu just as I have!
