I really haven’t found one brand of skin care and cosmetics that I’m 100% loyal to. I’m always trying new things whenever the mood (or coupon!) strikes me. It’s nice to have a little assortment, right? But, sometimes that means not having that go-to product that you know is going to work for you each and every time. So, I’m still on the hunt for the what works best for me and was really excited to have the opportunity to try Mia Mariu skincare products.
If you’re not familiar with Mia Mariu (I wasn’t either until recently), let me give you a little background. They sell natural skincare and cosmetics both online and through independent advisers. They sell everything from lipstick to moisturizers to vitamins. The whole package to make you shine!
I got to try four Mia Mariu products. The first one that I use each day is the Refreshing Foaming Gel Cleanser. I REALLY like this face wash! A little goes a long way which is great for stretching your dollars. After you rub it into your skin it foams up into a silky lather that really feels like it’s washing away the dirt and oil then it rinses clean, too! No filmy residue left on your face and while I always needed moisturizer after my shower, I wouldn’t say this is a drying cleanser at all. I need moisturizer no matter what face wash I use and my skin never felt tight after I used this.
The next product I used was the Mineral Cream Concealer. This is definitely my favorite of the four products that I tried. It’s a bit heavy, but I think that’s needed to do the job when you’re trying to mask blemishes, age spots (help me, I’m only 34!) and dark circles under your eyes. As with the face wash a little goes a long way. I’ve been using this product for months and haven’t even made a dent in it. I also like that there’s a little mirror in the lid so you can take this on-to-go for quick touch ups. Blot a little on the spots you want to conceal and it covers beautifully! I wore some foundation on top just to even out my entire face but never found the concealer to make me look spotty at all. And it’s oil-free so I never felt like it was too greasy. The other thing I love about Mia Mariu is that they make it easy to find the right shade for your skin with this tool.
The third Mia Mariu product I used was the Volumizing an Lengthening Mascara. This product gets sort of mixed reviews from me. I love how it looks when I first put it on. It really does make my eyes pop by lengthening and darkening my lashes. The brush never gets clumpy and is big enough that I can cover my lashes from one side to the other in only two strokes. So it goes on really well and looks great, but…. It left me with dark smudges under my eyes within an hour or so. Now, I have to note that I seem to have this problem with almost every mascara that I try. Honestly, I’ve found two that don’t cause me smudge issues. So it’s possible that it’s just me, but I didn’t have great luck with the mascara.
The last product that I tried was the Hydrating Stick Gloss. I chose Sedduccion as my color (oohlala!). This is a really nice lipstick! I’d call it a lipstick verses a lip gloss, but it definitely has a silky, glossy feel to it when you put it on. But it’s opaque like a lipstick and not shimmery like you might expect a gloss to be. I love that it’s not drying like so many lipsticks are. It really does feel great to wear, nice and moisturizing. I’m not sure if I picked the best color for me, but that would be my own fault. The color is totally true to what you see on the screen. They’re exactly the same so there are no surprises there.
So of the four products that I got to try I loved three of them and one is just a trouble spot for me anyway. Darn eyes. Mia Mariu definitely makes high quality cosmetics and skin care. I think I finally found some products that I am going to be loyal to and quit shopping around at random. If you choose just one thing to try, I’d recommend the concealer. LOVE that stuff! Here I am using all of my Mia Mariu products!
