Winner has been notified—congrats to Carol Sue!
I never wore much makeup when I was younger. I still don’t really, but I do wear more than I used to. Chris always says he prefers me without makeup, but the older I’ve gotten I like to wear more because it makes me feel better and I feel like I look more professional as well. Generally I wear a bit of foundation, powder, eyeliner, and mascara. If I’m really getting fancy I’ll add eyeshadow, blush, and something on my lips.
(Me, fancy. Hey, I’m still a newlywed, I can post wedding pictures for at least the rest of this year, right?)
When Mia Mariu asked if I would review a couple of their products, I said sure. They sent a few things, including an anti-aging serum and a lip gloss. Now, I can’t properly review the anti-aging serum after using it for just a week or so, because I don’t know how well (or poorly) it is keeping me from aging, but I’ll say that it is a very nice texture, feels great going on, and has a nice neutral smell. It seems to moisturize well, and I don’t feel that I’ve gotten too much more visibly older yet. So far I like it, and I’ll keep using it (at least until the bottle runs out!)
The lip gloss is in lipstick form, which I am absolutely terrible at applying. I know as a “27 year old” woman (that was something we decided on at my party last night, I am not actually 27) I should be able to apply lipstick, but I can’t. The color looks bright red, but is actually really subtle.
Anyway, I should tell you, yes, I got these products for free to review, but I do like them, especially the “Anti-Aging Brightening Serum.” I also liked the little sample packs.
