While I love all things that make me look, smell, and feel pretty, I do realize that not all cosmetics are created equal. Not by a long shot, actually. Many cosmetics contain nasty ingredients that I won't name here. (You should thank me, because if you're snacking while you read this, they might just make your stomach turn!) That's why I prefer botanically based or mineral cosmetics. Not only are they better for the environment, they're also better for the skin!
One company I recently became acquainted with is Mia Mariu. This is a great brand that much like Avon or Mary Kay, offers women a chance to start their own home-based businesses while selling high-end, mineral cosmetics and botanical skin care products. These are very similar to those found at upscale boutiques and department stores, but they won't break the bank!
The Mineral Foundation is very creamy and provides a flawless finish. It does not feel cakey at all, and stays put quite well. A little bit goes a long way, so one bottle should last quite a long time. The only thing I did notice is that it does tend to settle a bit and fine lines or creases become visible. This could easily be remedied with a good primer, which Mia Mariu also sells!
You can check out Mia Mariu on their website.
