Southern Magnolia Minerals (SMM) is a family-owned cosmetics company that makes all-natural mineral makeup in the USA. They create their products in small batches using mineral pigments designed to lie gently on the skin’s surface to magically hide dark circles, age spots, uneven skin tone to rosacea, scars and more by reflecting light away from flaws. SMM products are designed to hide your flaws, not your face, helping you to “Live, Love, Laugh, Naturally!”
I have never bare mineral makeup before, so I was eager to try it out! SMM sent me samples of their mineral foundation, concealer, blush and eyeshadows. For me, I have had a lot of trouble finding something easy to use that could give me light coverage, but still was able to hide the redness in my cheeks. One stroke of the mineral foundation and the redness was gone! And I loved how soft my skin it felt, not heavy or cakey at all. Plus it really did make my skin glow, as if I was not wearing any makeup at all. Natural beauty is what I like! To help me in another problem area (dark circles from partying all night with my toddlers), I also tried the appropriately-named Well-Rested Concealer/Eyeshadow. It was an instant perk-me-up and again, felt very light on my skin.
Next I tried the blushes and eyeshadows. The blushes were pretty shades that went on easily while my skin still looked natural. The eye colors were subtle but shimmery when I applied them. And I’m talking about blue and green, which I haven’t used since the 8th grade! So I admit that I was scared at first, but I loved the final result.
SMM carries several kits for all-in-one beauty. Guess which one caught my eye: Mommy’s Morning Makeover Kit! It contains two shades of their Mineral Foundation for you to mix as the seasons change, so you’ll always have a good match to your skin tone. And yes, it does include the multitasking Well-Rested Concealer/Eyeshadow plus their Pro-Vitamin Mineral Mascara to brighten your eyes even more. The Face and Body Bronzer – Brazilian is also included, to give you a sun-kissed look without those harmful rays! And it’s all contained in a pretty zip-top pouch.
SMM also carries a new formula in mineral foundation called Diva Defense Second Skin, which will give you a youthful, glow while being light as air on your skin. It’s great for minimizing pores and controls shine. Like all the mineral makeup by SMM, it’s made of soothing, naturally healing minerals to help calm acne and rosacea. If you have fine lines, this will help soften them. You’ll be left with a dewy, radiant, soft and silky complexion! Diva Defense Second Skin comes in 7 shades for you to choose from.
And I was so surprised to learn that SMM also creates hair products! Their Hair and Skin Tonic is yet another multitasking product that works to soften your hair and skin! Let’s see, what kind of hair do I have – dry, damaged, frizzy. Yep, the Hair and Skin Tonic would be perfect for me!
Plus it’s a non-greasy moisturizer that contains no alcohol so it won’t dry you out either. You may also try this product as a facial cleanser, makeup remover, for shaving, and more.
