Sparkle and Avoid Shine with the Mia Mariu Deluxe Touch Up Kit! #Review + #Giveaway #HolidayGiftGuide

I feel like I am simply glowing these days, and it's all thanks to some wonderful new cosmetics I was recently given the opportunity to try out. I'll be honest with you, there are a lot of days where I wind up sans make up. When I was younger, I wouldn't be caught dead out running around without make up on. I had terrible skin as a kid, and was so self conscious about it that make up sort of became my best friend. As I got older, my skin started clearing up, and now, I'm blessed with a pretty nice complexion, or at least I receive a lot of nice comments about it. 

Though I may not need to wear a lot of make up these days, I do aim to look my best when I'm out of the house, and care to use cosmetics that make me look and feel good, and are also non skin-wrecking. That's why I was so excited to team up with the lovely ladies at Mia Mariu this holiday season. Mia Mariu stands for beauty and health in harmony. Mia Mariu Cosmetics are designed to illuminate your natural beauty- inside and out!

I received the Deluxe Touch Up Kit with applicator brush, and three Hydrating Sticks

Each product came individually wrapped or boxed, and I also received a Mia Mariu catalog, filled with wonderful beauty products.

Pretty little catalog!

I was sent a Deluxe Touch Up Kit for review, and I couldn't wait to see what types of cosmetics came with the kit. Everything was wrapped up, so I opened up the small black compact to find some dazzling, colorful squares on the pallett. The compact also housed a large square mirror, perfect for touch ups on the go! The top of the make up within the compact, was covered by a thin tissue sheet, to keep the make up from smudging during shipping.

Deluxe Touch Up Kit

Gorgeous colors- powder, blush, and a trio of eyeshadows.

Just look at the shimmering tones in these colors!

The Deluxe Touch Up Kit by Mia Mariu retails for $46.00 and is a limited edition set. This lovely compact is the perfect size to toss into your purse, gym bag, tote, and take it on the go! The compact features the Mia Mariu signature Magic Satin Mineral Pressed Powder, which is so silky! I love the way it just glides right on, and makes your skin glow! It has unique gold tones that allow you to dramatically play up your look, or keep it simple, giving you that healthy 'summer glow' all year long! Also included is the Blushing Blush, which glides onto the cheeks effortlessly and gives them a radiant glow, as well. The Luxe Eyeshadow Trio features flirty, sexy and savvy- three long lasting colors that won't melt off, crinkle or smudge, They are all day wearing mineral eye shadows that will make your eyes pop!

I love both the powder and the blush in this set! They make my skin look and feel amazing! The eyeshadows are beautiful, too! I love combining the purple and silver tones when I wear black or gray. The silver is my secret weapon for mixing with another color I have to create a stunning highlight for the brow line, as well as around the corners of my eyes for a dramatic look!

I was also sent some beautiful Hydrating Stick Gloss colors! These lip stick-like colors glide on smoothly, just like a lip gloss, and offer a bit of shine, too! I am a big fan of lip gloss, so I am definitely loving these colors! I tend to go for pinks and neutrals, and I was pleased to see that Mia Mariu offers a lot of neutral tones, for a more natural look. If you like to go big and bold, there are lots of gorgeous pink, red and even golden toned glosses! These lovelies retail for $15.00 each. Each gloss contains vitamins A, C, and E, which nourish your lips as you wear them. The gloss is buttery and creamy, and won't feather, like so many lip sticks do. This will give your lips a little glow, and you'll love how soft they remain as you wear the gloss.




Mia Mariu has an incredible line of cosmetics and beauty products that would make wonderful holiday gifts, or would be perfect to add to your make up counter, or daily routine!

Now that I have experienced the luxe richness of these beautiful cosemtics by Mia Mariu, I may not be able to go back to what I was wearing before! I just love that they go on so beautifully, make my skin look and feel beautiful, they're a great value, and they are long-lasting! I don't have time to be re-touching my make up all day, but the Deluxe Touch Up Kit makes it easy for me to do a quick check and retouch if needed before I head to a meeting, a rehearsal, when I'm volunteering, or just out with the family. I highly recommend giving these products a try, and think that they would make wonderful stocking stuffers! I'd love to find a touch up kit or some of the hydrating stick glosses in my stocking, or wrapped up under the tree!
