When it comes to makeup, I’ve been stuck in the dark ages. Though I’m not as bad as my mom (she still wears blue eye shadow – sorry Mom but you do), I have worn the same color palate of eye shadows forever. When mineral makeup first came out years ago, I tried the loose powder foundation and loved it. But for whatever reason, I never tried any other forms mineral cosmetics until now. And you know what? I’ve been missing out!
When the opportunity to try Mia Mariu mineral cosmetics was presented to me, I decided to go out of my comfort zone and try some of the eye makeup. My usual eye makeup consists of a little eye liner, some pressed eye shadow (usually the kind that comes with four different shades in a little container) and some waterproof mascara. My eye makeup never really stayed on for more than a couple of hours and never was that impressive. And now I know why.
This makeup rocks! What I love most about this makeup is that a little bit goes a long way. With my other store bought makeup, I would repeatedly apply and reapply before I even left the house to get a little bit of color. With my Mia Mariu eye shadow, all I have to do is barely dip my makeup brush (I use Mia Mariu’s brush #15) in the powder, apply and I have complete coverage. No double dipping necessary! The colors are also true to what they look like. Have you even bought some eye shadow, applied it and it looks completely different from what you thought it would? I have! You don’t have to worry about that with these eye shadow duos. The colors are true to what they should be. The loose mineral shadow liner is so versatile. You can apply just a little on your lower and upper lids for an every day look or glam it up a bit for those nights out. You can apply it dry or wet it up to use as a liner. They key to using the loose mineral liner is having the right brush so make sure you invest in one.
