Mia Mariu Sponsor Spotlight Review

I have such a great Makeup and Skincare company to tell you about today called Mia Mariu! They were so kind to send me 3 products to review:

1.) Perfecting Finish Mineral Foundation Primer

2.) Perfecting Finish Mineral Foundation (vanilla)

3.) Anti-Aging Brightening Serum

You are gonna love this light awesome powered Brightening Serum! It goes on smoothly and is not thick at all so you won't feel like you have on a ton of heavy face serums/creams and I love that. I had used face serums/creams in the past that I felt like I was wearing a ton, especially at night.

This is an anti-aging serum that targets sun spots and pigmentation while brightening overall skin clarity. This serum contains anti-aging peptides, skin-brightening botanicals, Aloe and Vitamin B5 Complex to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Suitable for all skin types, non-irritating, oil-free.

You can use this serum during the day and at night. Also, put this on first at night before your nighttime moisturizer and the same for the daytime moisturizer.
I found out about Primers a few years back and have loved them ever since. However, lately I had run across several that for some bizarre reason, would roll when I went to put on my liquid foundation. Don't know which one was the culprit but I then switched to mineral makeup and don't seem to have any problems.

My thought is maybe those others had creams or butters that were too heavy because Mia Mariu's Perfecting Finish Primer is absolutely awesome! What I really liked about it was that it goes on smoothly and feels like silk instead of being thick. It is almost like it is a serum instead of a primer. My skin drank it up and loved it!

It's rich in antioxidants and botanicals and has created a smooth face allowing the foundation to glide on without any problems. It leaves a fresh natural look that lasts all day. The Mineral Primer is power packed with antioxidants and will offer you the healthy benefits of Lycii Fruit, Aloe, Milk Thistle Extract, White Tea and Vitamin A and E.

Apply after moisturizer and before concealer and foundation. Suitable for all skin types, non-irritating and oil free!
This Perfecting Finish Mineral Foundation is one of the best I have ever used! And I don't say that lightly. Before I put it on my face, I did the hand test with the serum, primer then the foundation and the Vanilla foundation went on like silk gliding across the back of my hand, but what was even more amazing is that it made the back of the one hand look smoother, more even and no splotches! You definitely need to try these yourself on the back of your hand! If it can do that on your hand, think of the magic it will do on your face.

The Vanilla Foundation is oil free but it is hydrating makeup with luminous all day coverage. You will enjoy the additional treatment benefits of natural Minerals, Green Tea, Lecithin, Vitamins A & E. The end result is an age-minimizing foundation that leaves the complexion with an even skin tone and a flawless all-day refined finish even in hot temperatures and humidity. It is suitable for all skin types. I love it!

Mia Mariu was even nice enough to enclose a makeup wedge for me to use for patting the liquid mineral makeup on my face ensuring that I got a clean, nice and even coverage. I also liked the fact that they included 3 samples in my box, even though I was getting the stuff to review. I like knowing that they will give you samples when you order so that you can try different products.

I think they must have a Microdermabrasion Scrub because my samples were the activator, refinisher cream and then the moisturizer with SPF30 for the face. I like knowing that also. I have become more conscious of seeing which products carry SPF and which ones don't. At my age, I don't need the added stress of making my face age faster than it needs to! But, I can tell you honestly, that I really am impressed with this company and will keep them in mind for future makeup when mine runs out!

I also saw that they have a signature fragrance called Adorame Eau de Parfum and it sounds awesome! It says that it has these notes: Juicy Nectarine, White Violet, Tropical Orchid, Mirabelle Plum, Egyptian Jasmine, Turkish Rose, Blackberry Musk, Vanilla Absolute and Cashmere Woods. Sounds very romantic and sexy!
I also found out that this is one of those businesses like Mary Kay, Avon, etc where you can become an advisor and make extra money selling their products. So, if any of you are interested, give them a shout or an email. I wish I could make some extra money but because of the SSN Disability rules, any money I make, they can take out of my monthly SSN check so I am stuck but wanted to pass the info onto you if you think this might be something that you would like to do.
