Mía Mariú Product Review & $40 Beauty Prize Giveaway! - Ends 10/8/12

As a busy mother of 3 I sometimes find it hard to put myself before everybody else in my crazy little household of fun! But, as the youngest of our brood starts to become a tad more independent, I am finally finding the time to concentrate on myself a little more and to re-discover a trickle of that individuality and personality, which lies in wait screaming out more than just "MOM!"

With this in mind, it is my pleasure to have had the chance over the past week or so to try out some wonderful make-up pieces from the fabulous Mía Mariú - a health and beauty based company with many enticing products to make you look and feel your best at any time - day or night!

The items that I received for review are some of my all time favorite combinations of color and pop, which ultimately include:

Hydrating Stick Gloss, in Beso:

Loose Mineral Shadow Liner, in Aguamarina:

Intense Eye Liner, in Black:

Now, As a huge fan of pink lipstick, who also adores a glossy lip, I feel as though the 'Stick Gloss' and I were just meant to be! The rich shade of pink with a buttery, balmy, delicious feel (and a little twinkle) looks like a lipstick, applies like a lipstick, but feels like a gloss and a regular lipstick rolled into one big happy application of lip heaven! It did not chap my lips, it did not flake and it remained bold and visible throughout the day, which is everything you could ask for in a lip product!

The 'Mineral Shadow Liner' is just as divine and serves a multi-purpose! You can, as I did, lightly dust your eyes with it OR you can wet it ever so slightly and apply it as a liner! It glides on smooth and gives a rather even dusting to your eye with a little sparkle. The color is very subtle with one application but can be very dramatic when applied as a liner too! I paired this with a touch of pink and ivory from another collection for a subtle look with a slight edge.

I then finished off the eye with the 'Intense Eye Liner', which I am incredibly impressed with! The liner glides on smooth and effortlessly, leaving behind a very fluid line and a very crisp, precise, application which only required one slight touch up throughout the day and did not smudge (or run) at all, even through the rain. Wonderful!

My overall impression of Mía Mariú, based on the items in this review, is one of utter adoration! The Aguamarina coloring of the eye pairs exceptionally well with the Beso coloring of the lip, for a light and playful look, which could be worn for almost every occasion. Not too heavy or light, sticky or flaky, patchy or short-lasting, I simply can not find a single fault with these quality products and very much look forward to experimenting with other colors in their range in the near future!

Keeping in mind that I am such a makeup noob, I think the one thing I could not live without would be a large collection of eyeshadows, gives me variety, and you can do a lot with a little eyeshadow! :)
