Never heard of Mii Cosmetics? Here's a bit of background..
Mii recently launched in the UK and was developed with one idea in mind. That women shouldn't constantly feel the pressure of having to live up to the high standards we've all set for ourselves nowadays. Instead of trying to transform yourself into something you're not, the main focus is to be happy with who you are and to be content with yourself instead of crumbling to the pressure of 'being beautiful'. Having confidence in yourself is alone, beautiful so feel free to create an image that is entirely you - not based on someone else.
I was offered the chance to try two products from their range and after a long browse on their website I settled on the Glamorous Trio Bronzing Face Finish and their Moisturising Lip Lover Lipstick in 'Express'.
Glamorous Trio Bronzing Face Finish in 'Treasure - 01'.
Price: £23.50 for 10g
Only available in this shade
This gorgeous product contains two different shades of bronzer as well as a highlighter. I love products like this because they can be extremely versatile! For me, this wouldn't just be a bronzer this could also be used as an eyeshadow trio and the highlighter could be used all over the face.
Swirled together you achieve a beautiful bronzed glow that warms up the face and add a pretty sheen to the skin. I'm quite fussy about shimmer in products, any chunky glitter or a frosty finish enhances pores and I don't think it looks flattering on ANY skin tone so I was happy when I saw the shimmer in this was subtle. The pale, golden highlighter strip has a gorgeous pearlescent sheen to it and the two bronze shades have subtle shimmer running through them - combined creating the perfect bronzed glow.
The price might seem slightly steep for a brand that's not as well known but the quality is amazing. The Bronzing Face Finish is finely milled, buttery and creamy making it easy to blend, it's pigmented, with a gorgeous finish to each shade and the packaging is simplistic and sleek, as well as very sturdy with a large compact mirror.
Moisturising Lip Lover Lipstick in 'Express - 06'
£14.95 for 3.5g
Available in 12 shades
I went for Express because it looked like a beautiful variation of the classic red lip. Instead of a matte red you get a subtle, pale red with a slight golden shimmer which applies as a sheer wash of colour and can be built up for a more intense look. As the name suggests, this leaves lips nicely moisturised and doesn't highlight any dry areas - always a plus for colder months! I found this lasted a good few hours on my lips before I had to touch up and at no point did I get the dry, tight feeling some other red lipsticks leave you with.
For me, this is a great reminder that you don't have to stick to the usual large brands dotted around your local Debenhams. There are fantastic cosmetic companies about that are just as amazing! You can really see the care that's gone into the products, and the quality is fantastic. I'll definitely be purchasing a few of their eye shadows and I really want to try the Flawless Face Base too!
