I recently purchased this Milea Mineral Swatches. Why swatches? I am a little hesitant and at the same time confuse what mineral makeup to try. I want to try all of them and besides you are not going to use them all at once.
10 sachets costs Php 50.00 they arae about 1/8 teaspoon each.

Who would not be interested after reading the about right? Let me give my observations.
1. Foundation – I got the color FLAX. Other shades are NUDE, BEIGE, ALMOND, TAN, COCOA
I bet I got the wrong shade because it appears to be darker on my skin. I am acidic that is why I need a little lighter shade. When you are acidic powder/foundation that you put on your skin will appear darker after applying it. I should have got Beige instead.
The coverage is LIGHT no matter how many products I applied it can’t cover my dark circles (terrible dark circles) BUT it makes the skin look more fresh and flawless. And yes! It feels very light on skin.
Look at me.
I am wearing the foundation only nothing else. I just woke up when I am inspired to blog about this. So please bear with my good morning face!
2. Blush – I got Peach. Other shades are BERRIES, ROSE, SIENNA
My colleague told me that this shade is not suitable for me. It made me look to have a medium – dark complexion. I should have tried Sienna base on the photo swatches I have.
3. Finishing Powder – I got SHIMMERING. Other shades are BRONZER LIGHT, BRONZER MEDIUM, BRONZER DARK, PINK GLOW, STAR DUST
This is best for highlighting your cheekbone, brow bone, cupid’s bow, and bridge of your nose. It has subtle shimmer that you can still use it during daytime.
4. Eye Shadow – I got ANGEL WHITE, ANGEL VIOLET, GOLD, GOLD OLIVE, MOCHA SPARK, DARK VIOLET, and BLACK STEEL
They have different categories and shades. They have Light Colored, True Colored, Dark Colored, and Metallic.
Here are the swatches.
I include the Peach Blush here but my skin just absorbed it. So you cannot see it that much. As for the others, the pigmentation depends on the color and type. The Angel White and Angel Violet tends to look the same. Gold Olive appears to be more pigmented than the Gold itself. Mocha Spark is my favorite it made my eyes sparkle, you can apply it alone if you are in a hurry. Dark Violet and Black Steel is very pigmented great for smokey eyes.
These swatches told me what to buy next time. So instead of wasting money buying the wrong colors for my skin, I had the chance to test them first.
I am loving it so far.
By the way, Milea also has Bath and Body products as well baby products. I also bought some of them that I will feature on my next post.
