I recently came across the brand Mia Mariu and was intrigued by their cosmetics because they were made with high quality natural ingredients. I recently had the opportunity to try out one of their lip glosses, foundations and blushes.
My favorite product so far is their Mineral blush, Maria Bonita ($17). Their blushes are made with natural minerals from the earth and are fortified with vitamins like A,C and E. This blush is full of subtle shimmer (not chunky whatsoever) that will leave your cheeks glowing. The color is a gorgeous Barbie pink that is easily blended into the skin and buildable if needed but I actually love the way it looks on my skin with just one layer. It has recently been my go to pink blush of the month!

Next up is their Luminous Lip Gloss in Dulzura ($13). This lipgloss is the same Barbie Pink color as the blush, although when applied it comes out very sheer. It is also full of shimmer like the blush. Even though the gloss has lots of shimmer the texture is smooth and glides easily on the lips, not a gritty feeling like some shimmer glosses have.
I have heard many great reviews about Mia Mariu’s Perfecting Finish Mineral foundation and was excited to try it out. I however was not as lucky as all the other girls to have fallen in love with this foundation. I am not sure if I got a bad bottle or what but I it just didn’t work for me. The foundation does match my skin perfectly which I was happy about and when first applying it is really nice but after that things go downhill. When blending the foundation into my skin it starts to get really sticky feeling and I have to try really hard to blend it in. Like I said maybe it’s a bad bottle or maybe its my skin (we all know how terrible my skin is) so this foundation may actually work for you but sadly it did not for me. The coverage was medium to full and did hide several of my smaller acne spots but not the larger ones (nothing that I have found really covers that though)

Overall: I really Love the blush and enjoy using the lipgloss. The foundation was a miss for me but all other reviews I read about it had nothing but positive things to say about it, so if you are interested in trying the foundation maybe it will work well for you.
