Product Review and Giveaway- Mía Mariú’s New Fragrance Magia

 I received a bottle of Mía Mariú’s new fragrance "Magia" to review and I am very happy that I got a chance to review it because it is lovely and I would not have known about it otherwise. Mía Mariú will also be sending one of my lucky readers a full size bottle of 1 of their new fragrances from their "mm" Collection, winner's pick!
Enter below!
Along with the fragrance I received a tube of their hydrating stick gloss and three cream samples.

I grew up around older women and my first job was at a vintage boutique repairing vintage clothing and jewelry. When the talk of perfume came up the women surrounding me always said you pick your scent and you stick with it and make it your own. Due to that I rarely buy new perfume and have been using Ruban d'Orange by L`Occitane since the first time I went to San Francisco in 2006. When Coach launched their Poppy it was instant love for me though. When I was a teen and in my early 20's I wanted something as strong as Ruban d'Orange but now that I'm near 30 I find my self being more feminine and wanting fragrances like Poppy that are more feminine. 
 Magia seems to be a happy medium for me, it has all the fresh sweetness of vanilla and hints of fruits I am currently looking for but still a noticeable scent unlike Poppy which has a very light scent. When I first got the bottle in the mail I was just about to head out for the night so I spritz once and made my way to our car. As soon as I passed my fiance he said I smelled like vanilla and asked what I was wearing because he usually can't tell I have something on till we are in the car with Poppy. Magia is like the fun older sister that gets to go out at night vs. my usual. The scent was strong but not overwhelming and lingered for a few hours just being spritzed once on the base of my throat and in my hair. When I used it with all the “pulse points” the scent carried on for nearly the whole day.

The hydrating stick gloss in the color Amore.
When picking lipstick I always look for a few thing- color, shine, plumpness, staying power, and an affordable price.
The color of this is there, and it is perfect for my lips since it is roughly in the color family of my own lips just a few shade darker and brighter. The shine is there since this is a stick/gloss combo, I also didn't have to prep my lips with my EOS balm or Sugar Rose lip treatment since this is so hydrating, it was very moisturizing on my lips thanks to the Vitamin A, C and E in it. It has a nice sheer creaminess that really adds to the shine. For the plumpness I think since it is a bit creamy and has great shine it did leave my lips looking plump, this does not claim to be a plumper, just commenting on how full I felt my lips looked.
For the staying power I have to say it did a great job though it did not pass the first kiss test pictured above. What came off in the picture is pretty much all that came off, I went out to eat, had a few drinks, watched a movie at home and fell asleep on the couch for a bit. When I woke up it was still on without having to apply more then I put on at the time of these pictures, it reminded me of a lip stain but better. Finally on to the price, this retails for $15. My current favorite lipstick is Carmine by Besame that retails for $22, the staying power and shine do not compare to the hydrating stick gloss so I think the price is great for this. With the color and staying power this tube will last you a while so $15 will go a long way.

Overall, I am very please with both products I got to try and was happy to see that they are made in the US. That means quick shipping for when I order Tango, orange tone hydrating stick gloss. Keep an eye out for the swatch of that and if I get any other products by them if you are interested... they have a lot of goodies.
