Mii Cosmetics: Full Face

Mii Cosmetics beauty blogger flatlayI've been a megafan of Mii Cosmetics for quite a while - about a year now, come to think of it!  I first came across the brand while on a Champneys spa break last spring, at which point I fell in love with their subtle, flattering lip shades.  Since then, my collection of Mii Cosmetics has grown to the point of every one of my looks featuring at least one of their products.  So, continuing my theme of obsessing over the British brand, I'm taking things to the next level by saying YES to a full-face of Mii Cosmetics!  Featuring products that aim to enhance (rather than hide) natural beauty in a range of soft and feminine shades, this delivery has got me weak at the knees...
Miracle Base brush and foundation by Mii Cosmetics
Mii Cosmetics Miracle Base Brush c/o:  It's fair to say my brush collection has been terrible of late, and so this brush has been such a massive breath of fresh air!  Ten million points to this foundation brush and its super soft synthetic fibres. I've been using it with my favourite foundation for the past week and as a result have seen such a massive difference with regard to blending - it's making me want to upgrade my complete brush collection!

Mii Cosmetics Mineral Irresistible Face Base c/o:  So, this 100% pure mineral foundation promises a luxuriously creamy finish and flawless radiance once the minerals gradually release their colour as they warm to the skin.  Sadly, it just hasn't 'wowed' me and the Precious Nude (04) colour match isn't right for my pale skin; I've been massively distracted by that, and not given it much of a chance.  However I might give it another go later in the season once my complexion warms up a little!  
Base and blush brush mii cosmeticsMii Cosmetics Eye Loving BB Cream c/o:  Gentle yet deeply hydrating, this BB eye cream is the first one in my collection.  It works to revitalise, repair and add radiance to the eye area, all the while protecting thanks to SPF and raspberry stem cells that help to restore skin.  The Gentle Medium (02) shade has been a slight issue on the colour-front too, however once again I'm looking forward to putting it the test later in the season when I've got a little more natural colour in my face.

Mii Cosmetics Eye Colour Crayon c/o:  Is it possible to fall in love with an eyeshadow?!  This has been one of my favourite jaw-dropping discoveries of the year so far, without a doubt.  The texture is gorgeously creamy and glides onto the skin really easily without dragging.  Seriously, the only thing more impressive than the drop dead gorgeous Sorbet shade, is its ability to last for hours and hours and hours and hours...

Brow by Mii Conceal & Contour Duo c/o:  Considering eyebrows tend not to grow back in my family, I've never touched mine. So, I'm 99.9% sure by this point I'm one of those people who has their eyebrows done mentally by strangers while they're in conversation with me.  With this in mind, it all comes down to maintenance and 'making the best of what I've got', so this handy two-in-one pencil has been a godsend.  Designed to create a clean look, the contouring end of the pencil does a brilliant job at lifting the eye area in a subtle, natural way.

Mii Cosmetics Nourishing Lip Sheen c/o:  I've said it before and I'll say it again - I'm a lipgloss fanatic. I adore layering lighter shades over my favourite lip colours to soften them, while adding a glossy sheen.  In fact, I love them so much I even force my obsession on others by giving them as gifts - I featured this lipgloss' long-lost relative in my Christmas Gift Guide for Women last year!

Conceal end of Brow by Mii pencilMii Cosmetics Celestial Skim Shimmer in Rose Quartz c/o:  Love, love, LOVE.  I was introduced to both the Aurora and Rose Quartz Skim Shimmers this time last year.  So, having recently run out of the latter, this pretty-in-pink delivery has put a huge smile on my face; the six-shade design looks like summer in a palette - and it performs like it too!  The combined shades add a feminine glow to the cheeks and in my experience, have worked well with any other colours I've thrown into the mix.  Again, love!

  35. I'm not at all familiar with this brand, but I love the idea behind their products enhancing beauty, rather than masking it. I'd love to give their brushes, eye colour crayons and skin shimmers a try, as they all sound gorgeous! It's just a shame that the base products weren't a good match for your skin-tone.

  48. Ok, that eye crayon looks pretty rad to me and so does that gorgeous golden champagne hue. I don't do much eyeshadow and by that I mean colour. I've stuck to the same Dior Solo shade for nearly ten years now and it's a soft champagne hue. I wouldn't mind amping it up a shade or two though ;o)

  88. ahhh it is always nice to have a beauty brand that you love again and again and will always go back to it, Gabrielle and I can see why you love this brand so much. The colours are actually really gorgeous and would work well with most skin tones, I feel.

    Not to mention, I totally love the packaging of them, even the box details and designed. Totally in love with that caption "live in a dream world where everything is beautifully calm", thanks for capturing small little details like that. I love it. It reflects the thoughts that the brand put into their products and believing that positive words can invoke a positive vibe already just by looking at it or using the product *_^

    That first brush looks really soft and comfortable to use. I wish I have a proper brush collection myself but as of now, it is a culmination of different brands, put together over the years. It is not impressive or near professional looking, but enough for now to get the job done.... I guess.

    Too bad I didn't get an up close look on the lipgloss show here in this collection but I did hop over to your previous Christmas gift blog post and show that shade up close, super gorgeous indeed! Though I am the total opposite of you, I am not a gloss gal, but more of a lipstick gal, I find gloss sticky, and hardly use them, though I have a few which is pretty decent to me, I feel.

    This is such a lovely collection, too bad, one or two of them are not in your matching shades and didn't perfect as good as you had hoped for. But I guess like you said, give them a chance again in summer and see how they fare.

    Same happened to me for a Bobbi Brown new Nourishing Lip Colour. The one I got during their event as a bright pop red shade which I didn't enjoy at all as it enhanced the look of my two-toned lip. but then later the PR send me another much lighter pinkish coral shade from the same range, and guess what, I totally fell in love with it and it got me by surprised! I realised even the shade makes a huge difference on the lips, even though the formulation, texture and exactly the same *_^

    Thanks so much for this! It is such a lovely post with beautiful visuals to get me drool all over the products. haha
