Mistura Beauty Solutions Review & Giveaway

I first heard about Mistura on Dragon's Den and you may be familiar with this product from watching the show as well.  That episode was quite a while ago and Mistura has really taken off since then!  I loved the idea of the product since I have virtually no time or motivation to put make up on in the morning.  Mistura requires very little time and yet somehow magically makes a difference.

I also loved watching Andi Marcus sell the product to the "Dragons" and succeed!  She's from Ottawa and it's great to see a Canadian woman do so well with an independent business.  I am still trying to figure out my million dollar idea...I guess I'll stick with teaching until then.

The Review:
Mistura sent me an Essential Kit to try out.  Here's a description of the products from their website: The Essential Kit includes 1/8th ounce jar of our luscious Luminada® illuminating moisturizer, a mini clamshell of the 6-in-1 Beauty Solution® , Vitamin E lip balm and a baby Kabuki travel brush.

Here's a photo of the products I received.
I took before and after photos of myself to show the difference.  The only thing I had one other than the Mistura was some mascara.  I didn't add any lipstick for the photos but I would use my lipstick in addition to the lip balm for daily use.  They have added some lipsticks called Pump and Glow to their product line so that's an option as well.  Honestly, when I was applying the Mistura, it didn't feel like I was really applying anything but it certainly made a difference in the photos!  It's very subtle but the Mistura really seems to even out the skin tone and gives a natural glow.  Also, there is just one product for all skin tones and it is supposed to work with all complexions.  You can view many before and after photos on their website as well.  Here are mine!

Before
After
I've continued to use the products for just over a week now and I predict that I will be purchasing more.  It's really quite nice to apply as the brush is soft and it was kind of relaxing brushing it over my face.  I used the directions from their website but basically you start off with your cheekbones like blusher and then move onto the forehead, nose, eyes, and chin.  Here's more detailed instructions from their website about How to use Mistura.

The Giveaway:
Mistura Beauty Solutions is going to give away 3 Essential Kits like the one I received.  Yes, that's right!  There will be THREE lucky winners for this giveaway.

In addition the the giveaway, Mistura is offering my readers a 25% discount code when you order through their website at www.misturabeauty.com.  The coupon code is: IS25
