Summer Beauty with Mia Mariu #Review

Nothing says summer like a bit of shimmery makeup fun! Mía Mariu, based out of Dallas, retails natural health and beauty products. Each product is a fusion of botanicals, antioxidants, vitamins, minerals and peptides that are reputed to give you a youthful and beautiful look. I was sent a few product from their mineral makeup line to try out. Mineral makeup is a favorite of mine because it's light weight and enhances your natural beauty.

The first item I was sent included the Hydrating Lip Gloss in Caricia. This product combines color and hydrating gloss in one product that is further enriched by vitamins and minerals. When I first opened this, I thought, "hmm, they sent me something I would never wear." It's much too bright for my tastes and I don't normally wear lipstick either. I was saddened because their lipstick costs $15 and it felt a bit like a waste. But...Weirdly, as time passed, it lightened and I liked the color it changed into. I also notice how moisturizing it felt as it glided onto my lips. The moisturizing effects stayed awhile and the color had lightened to a much nicer color within the hour. LOL, I probably ate it all. ;)
Natural Mineral Makeup Review
The other two products I was sent the Mineral Bronzer in South Beach ($16) and the Mia Kabuki Bronzer Brush ($30). The brush was amazing soft and smaller than I had thought it'd be. It's compact and great for travelling and everyday use. The bronzer in South Beach was a real pretty color, even in the container. It left a nice shimmery powder on my cheeks, adding just a tad of color. I definitely see myself using this. Overall, they have some great products but due to their natural side of things, it's a little more costly than your usual line of makeup. They have an amazing line of products that I would use that I'd love to be able to try more of.

I'm not much of a makeup person either, so I would also think "what a waste" but I'm glad it ended up working out for you!. I've been trying a little bronzer lately as well, but I don't think i have a very good brush. I need a better one.

I've been hearing a lot about this brand but I haven't tried it yet. Might check it out for myself once I need to buy a new set of makeup.

The bronzer makes your skin glow. I'd say that one's a keeper!

I love lip gloss and trying new ones! I might have to try this one! Yes, I might have a bit of an obsession! :)
