Mia Mariu: Natural Beauty and Skin Care Products (Review and Giveaway, Rafflecopter, US, 10/15)


A few years ago, I was introduced to mineral makeup, and became a HUGE fan!  I found it to blend well and work well with my skin.  Additionally, as it is made from minerals, I feel great not putting a ton of chemicals onto my skin, and therefor into my person.

I was really excited when I got to try two eye shadows and a facial cleanser as part of a Karma Media Campaign, and I can't wait to tell you about my experience.

So, I'll start with the cleanser.  I have been using Mia Mariu's Refreshing Foaming Cleanser.  It is primarily aloe and sea kelp, so it is gently, but still works.  I'm loving it, but I should note it makes more of a lather than a foam, which is just fine for me.  The description says it is good for all skin types, and that it is gentle enough for people with skin problems including rosacea.

I also received two eye shadows (which they let me pick out), and I chose a sparkly blackish color called Azabache, and a warm pinky peach color called Durazno.  I love both, and can do some pretty neat things with them when you combine dry and wet shadow together.  I like to brush my entire eyelid with Durazno, then go back and darken the outer corner with Azabache, then use a wet liner brush and use the Azabache to line my lids.

Sorry - the picture to the left is horrible, do you have any idea how hard it is to take a picture of your eye makeup with no one home to help out???  Well, the color is off, and my face looks funny, but I wanted to show you how nicely the mineral makeup blends.    The next picture is a MUCH better representation of the beauty of these two colors.

I am absolutely in love with these two colors and what I can accomplish with them.  I put each color on dry with a medium brush, then took a liner brush and got it wet, doing a wet liner stroke at the inner edge of each color (so the wet liner lines are both in the middle, the dark on the bottom, the light on the top).
