Mía Maríu Review
I enjoy reviewing various products and bath and beauty products are one of my favorites. When the opportunity to review Mía Maríu came up I eagerly volunteered!
Mía Maríu is a Dallas based company that offers natural health and beauty products available through social selling. You can also purchase the products online.
I was not informed of what I was receiving so I was not sure what to expect when I opened the package. Inside was a full sized foundation sampler (4.3 oz), some skin care samples and a foundation brush. The products were packaged very nicely and there was also a pamphlet about the company.
When I saw that I received a foundation I was concerned that it would not be a match for my skin color and tone but fortunately it was perfect! I am saving the skin care samples for my next trip but tried the base out over the course of 2 weeks. I have to say I absolutely LOVE this base.
I have been using powder mineral makeup for a few years now - since I have oily skin, the mineral makeup foundation seems to help with reducing shine and reducing the appearance of pores more that the liquid bases. I have tried several brands, including some high end and well known ones. What I really loved about the Mía Maríu foundation was 1) the pigmentation and 2) the blend-ability.
Many mineral foundations are too sheer to give full coverage or if you layer enough to do so, it looks cakey. The foundation gave full coverage in one application and, with using the brush (Perfect Blending Brush No. 22), it blended extremely well - with the Mía Maríu there were no patches of excess base. The foundation retails for $18 - higher compared to the cost of drug store brands, but comparable or lower in cost than premium brands.
I looked over the website and there are liquid mineral foundations for those with drier skin or those that prefer a liquid foundation. In addition to the Mía Maríu Mineral Makeup there are also many other items to choose from including Botanical Skin Care and Healthy Nutrition. For more information on the company make sure to visit and see what other types of fantastic products they offer.
If you are looking for a new mineral foundation be sure to check this one out. It is excellent quality, affordable and effective. It definitely surpassed my expectations. I look forward to trying more of their products.
