A Review of Mía Mariú Cosmetics and a Give Away, Too

Mía Mariú Brings Vibrant Beauty Inside and Out!

Mía Mariú is a direct sales company that offers cosmetics, skin care, and supplements to help women achieve healthy and vibrant beauty.

These natural health and beauty products are not available in stores.  They can only be purchased from Mia's  Independent Advisers or online.  By using social media and the power of ecommerce, the company allows women an opportunity to earn income, help others achieve their beauty goals, and still stay at home.  This is a nice arrangement for those looking to work from home, do something fun and stylish, and organize their work schedule so that it doesn't interfere with their family obligations.  

I just had an opportunity to try the cosmetic items you see below.

There is an eyeliner pencil, a mascara, some loose mineral powder for the face, and a mineral powder blush. I was very happy with all of the products.  The eyeliner went on easily in a smooth, unbroken line, and it stayed in place without smudging.  The loose powder helped to even out the areas where my skin has uneven tone, and also hid the wrinkles a bit.  I like to use powder because it feels light on my skin, and won't settle into the fine lines on my face.  The blush was a good color for me, and also went on easily and blended nicely.

Here is my face with just the powder and the eyeliner, so that you can see the smoothing of my skin tone and the way that the eyeliner left a fine and even line.

The mascara goes on without clumping.  The look is natural.  Here in black and white you can really see the mascara.

Here in color you can tell that although it gives my lashes definition, one coat is great for daytime lashes.

Last week we went out to celebrate our wedding anniversary.  I added a second coat and my lashes took on a more dramatic night time look.  (Of course, I didn't think to take a photo!)

I used a flash so this photo is a little washed out, but the makeup is smooth, my skin tone is even and the blusher looks very natural.

I have had nothing but compliments since using the Mía Mariú products and I am very happy with them.
