Mia Mariu Mineral Powder Bronzer in South Beach Review and Swatches

I've never been a big fan of bronzer. So many of them look orange, unnatural, or just plain dirty on my pale complexion. However, thanks to Mia Mariu Mineral Powder Bronzer in South Beach ($16), you can finally count me among the legions of bronzer devotees.

For the uninitiated, Mia Mariu is a direct selling botanical makeup company based in Dallas. Mia Mariu Mineral Powder Bronzer in South Beach is the first product I've tried from this brand and I am very impressed. 

Mia Mariu Mineral Powder Bronzer in South Beach is so subtle and natural that I find myself reaching for it every day to add instant radiance to my look. This silky-smooth loose powder is a rosy gold bronze shade with shimmer that blends exceptionally well with my light skin, and it lasts for about six hours before starting to fade.

I typically brush Mia Mariu Mineral Powder Bronzer in South Beach on my forehead, nose, chin and into the hollows of my cheeks. I use such a small amount that it doesn't look like I'm wearing bronzer -- my face just looks healthy, well-rested and glowing. However, I applied much more product than usual all over my cheeks so you could get an idea of the color in this photo.

Mia Mariu Mineral Powder Bronzer in South Beach is so decidedly not orange that I could see someone wearing it as a blush.

I am so happy to have finally found a bronzer that works with my skin tone. The natural glow I get from Mia Mariu Mineral Powder Bronzer in South Beach is better than any other bronzer I've tried. This product is a wonderful choice for pale girls!

Mia Mariu products are available from brand representatives or online. Stay tuned, because I will be hosting a giveaway of a Mia Mariu Mineral Powder Bronzer and Kabuki Brush soon!
