Mii Cosmetics 'Ethereal Collection': Lips

Mii Cosmetics Ethereal Collection
You may remember that at the beginning of this month I reviewed two Moisturising Lip Lover shades by Mii Cosmetics (spoiler: I adored them).  Well, just when I thought it would be impossible to love the brand even more, I was very kindly sent the stunning new Ethereal Collection c/o by Mii Cosmetics.  The collection consists of two 'Celestial Skin Shimmers', three 'Enchanting Eye Colours' and two 'Molten Lip Sheens'.  I'll be dividing the reviews into three parts: lips, eyes and cheeks.  So, without further ado.. let's talk lip sheens!          

Mii Cosmetics Ethereal Collection

Mii Cosmetics Ethereal Collection

The entire collection is ulta-feminine and glossy, with each and every item exuding summer vibes.  This couldn't have come at a better time for me as I'm currently looking to freshen up my makeup in preparation for the warmer months ahead.  I've been pushing aside my berry lip shades and 2D skin to welcome with open arms all nude, light or pretty colours!

Out of the two Molten Lip Sheens*, my vote undoubtedly goes to the Topaz shade.  Although the high-gloss qualities of Moonstone had me twirling the applicator in my hand for what seemed like an eternity, I found that I was still simply too pale to pull it off.  I would suggest the shade requires a contrast and so until I develop some sort of a tan, I'm just not going to be able to do it justice.

On the other hand, Mii Cosmetics' Topaz tells an entirely different story.  Since receiving the Molten Lip Sheen in Topaz, I've been wearing it every day as I'm really pleased by how well it matches both my skin tone and hair colour!  The creamy lip sheen really does give an 'exquisite iridescence to the lips' and I was hugely impressed by the coverage.  The photos below show Topaz after just one application and although ordinarily I wear lipgloss over lipstick, I've found the lip sheens by Mii Cosmetics are enough on their own - I honestly can't remember the last time applying a lip product was so simple!

I really can't praise the Molten Lip Sheen in Topaz enough.  It's such a radiant, warm and summery shade, so much so in fact, it's even tempted me into optimistically changing over my wardrobe to reunite with my summer clothing!  Ah, hello again spaghetti-strap dresses and patterned shorts..

  1. I like those lipglosses they're really shiny and the coverage is quite good!

    1. When it comes to lipglosses it's a case of the shinier, the better.. right!? ;)

  2. This sounds amazing however, I checked the site and I can purchase this brand through Gerrad Cosmetics and I have a feeling that shipping will be very expensive. I hate shipping fee, it's the reason why I never buy online. :-/

    1. That's a shame for you Shireen! There seems to be an expanding amount of destinations stocking Mii Cosmetics, hopefully it'll make it's way over to Canada for you to buy there one day!

  10. This shade looks so beautiful on you and compliments your skin-tone beautifully. It's really nice when you find a gloss that you can wear over again in the summer months ahead. I love looking for new shades to add to my collection, so thanks so much for sharing. Even though I am more of a lipstick girl, I still wear lip gloss occasionally. AND hello ms full, gorgeous lips! Have a great weekend:-).

    Great review xoxo
