Mía Mariú & a Giveaway!

Mía Mariú is a direct sales company that offers women the opportunity to have their own health & beauty business. Their products consist of botanical facial care, vitamins & supplements, scents & mineral makeup.

Being new to mineral makeup in general, I was eager to try what the kind folks from Mía Mariú sent me.


First let me say that I was sold on the Uniquely You Deluxe Touch Up Kit itself! The front has what I call "the face of Mía Mariú" & stays shut with a strong magnetic closure. Inside is a mirror that has amazing clarity along with Magic Satin Mineral powder, Mineral Blushing Blush & three Mineral Shadows (Sexy, Flirty & Savvy). I was a bit concerned I wouldn't be able to wear any of it because it seemed too dark for my light complexion, but it was perfect! 


I was amazed at the coverage this mineral makeup offers.Purely flawless. And it was all easy to blend, giving me just the look I was going for. I don't get to do my eye makeup that often since Mom has minimal time to get ready & out the door, but with virtually everything in the palm of my hand it only took 5 min. Maybe 7 min. if I was going for a night look.


Of course my mineral shadow glided on smoothly with the Petite Detail Eye Color Brush (No. 18). I have never used a makeup brush other than a blush brush, so of course I'm going to tell you how much I love this! I have shaky hands & applying eye liner can be so frustrating sometimes. But using the Petite Detail Eye Color Brush, I can take a bit of the Mineral Shadow to my eyes. Especially since it gives me the perfect smudged look I always stick with (of course that was my cover up for my not so straight liner).


 Mía Mariú also has Hydrating Stick Glosses that are out of this world! It looks like a regular tube of lipstick, but has an added hydrating gloss enriched with vitamins & minerals to keep your lips from getting dry. And coming from a bit of a lip balm addict (I can't stand my lips feeling naked), I could definitely feel the difference in softness on my lips. The best part, the gloss is subtle & doesn't have that tacky feel to it that most do.


I got to choose three colors & chose Capricho, Encanto & Amore. Capricho is by far my favorite shade with it's neutral hue. Encanto is more of a pinkish hue without being too much. Amore is the perfect shade of red, a color I have always been cautious of wearing until now. (Sadly I have no swatch for Amore since I seem to have misplaced it & can't remember for the life of me where it is.)


All of this is part of the "Colors for your every mood" campaign from Mía Mariú. 


Which one lucky winner will have the pleasure of receiving. (Don't worry, you can choose your three shades of Hydrating Stick Glosses.) The giveaway will conclude on at 12:00 a.m. est on Wednesday 12/18/13. Winners will be announced via rafflecopter & in a separate blog post which will be published no later than 3:00 p.m. on Wednesday 12/18/13. Winners will also be notified via email & announced on the Smith and Blessings facebook page. Winners will have 48 hours to submit shipping information, which will then be passed on to Mía Mariú for distribution of product. If 48 hours has lapsed, a new winner will be picked & then will also have 48 hours to submit their information. *Giveaway open to U.S. residents only.
