Mii Cosmetics Passion Matte Lip Lover Collection

Mii Cosmetics Passion Matte Lip Lover CollectionI hope everyone's had a wonderful Christmas!  After the hectic (though magical) build-up to the big day, I've been enjoying every last second of post-turkey relaxation.  As others have said, this week before New Year's Day tends to leave you feeling a little lost, so to distract myself from not knowing what day it is and the pile of Roses chocolate wrappers beside me, I've been playing around with some gorgeous new matte shades from Mii Cosmetics.  The Passion Matte Lip Lover collection c/o features four long lasting and richly pigmented shades each promising a 'suede-soft finish'.  So, what do I think of these new releases?

From left to right: Adoration, Sassy, Obsession, Bare

Bare 01 (above far right) - Starting with my absolute favourite, Bare is the pinky-nude of dreams.  Once applied, it shows as a dark, milky nude bordering on brown.  'Barely there' lip shades are no fun if they're literally barely there, whereas Bare is beautifully pigmented and definitely one for my super-pale readers.  Just gorgeous.

Adoration 02 (above far left) - Sadly, this warm aubergine shade hasn't become my best friend.  It's very close to Obsession, which is in my opinion a more flattering alternative for pale skin   

Sassy 03 (above middle left) - Yes!  Perfect!  Having recently fallen in love with the fiery red Moisturising Lip Lover in Fearless, this is such an exciting discovery.  The perfect matte paintbox red and with serious staying power.  My swatches don't do it justice - though you'll no doubt see it in action soon!

Obsession 04 (above middle right) - Like I said, a better alternative to Adoration.  It's vampy, mysterious and a perfect matte shade addition for winter

Four Passion Matte Lip Lover Shades by Mii CosmeticsI'm totally smitten with this new range by Mii Cosmetics; perfectly matte, long-lasting and gorgeously pigmented.  Bare will undoubtedly become one of my daily favourites, Sassy is the perfect sexy shade for winter nights and I can't wait to experiment with the other two shades.  Anyway, let me know if you have a favourite colour from this new collection!

With love,

  1. Loved reading this post! All four lipsticks look so pretty but I think Bare is such a wearable nude colour that lots of people would like! I hope you had a lovely Christmas :)

  2. The shade Sassy looks like it would be right up my street and a lipstick that I would wear all the time. I haven't tried anything from Mii Cosmetics before but I'm so tempted to try them out after reading your post :) I hope you had a lovely Christmas and a very happy New Year! x

  3. Omg these shades are absolutely bold and sexy. I haven't tried none of them before, but I've to surely do. Thanks for sharing, beautiful. Hope you had a lovely Christmas too.

  4. Sick shades! I can't decide which one is my favorite - I think BARE is the most unique one, but I know colors like that don't look good with my skin tone :/

  7. Girl I feel you on the Christmas and New Year front, what day is it again?!

    The lipsticks look so lush, bet they look freaking amazing on you! I rarely wear glossy lipsticks, mainly matte!

  11. Oh, I love the darker colors, they seem so mysterious and cool to me!:D

  12. Playing with lipstick is always a great way to distract yourself! ;)
    The darkest shades would probably be my favorites!

  13. And what better way to distract yourself then playing with new makeup? Sadly I know perfectly well which day it is as I am stuck at work...

  22. stunning pictures. Love the shades of lipstick!!!

  23. These shades are absolutely gorgeous! I remember you featuring some of Mii's other products on your blog, they really seem to have a beautiful selection! I'd have to say my favorites would have to be the deeper plum shades, so pretty and perfect for winter. Plus, I've been a tad bit obsessed with burgundy this season, lol! Thanks so much for sharing, beautiful, and I hope you have a very Happy New Year!



  24. Sassy looks amazing! I haven't actually heard of Mii's before, but then I'm quite clueless when it comes to the wider world of makeup; there's just so much to discover eh? Gorgeous shade, looking forward to seeing you rock some of it soon :-) happy new year! xx

  25. OMg gorgeous shades! I love the idea of a suede-soft finish. My favorite judging from the pictures would be Bare 01 and Obsession 04. :) By the way, flatlay goals here!! :D
    Have a Happy New Year, lovely!!

  26. All of these shades are just stunning! my perfect cup of tea!

  30. It's my first time hearing about this brand! Love the entire range of shades, I am fond of nude lipsticks that I can wear to work, so I think the bare one would be ideal for me!! Thanks for sharing this Gabrielle! Wishing you a lovely new year! :) xo~ Lena

  31. I love the adoration colour! So pretty! They are all really pretty though and I'd wear every one of them. I have never heard of this brand before but these seems like really great lipsticks. I always love your photography girl! So professional and clean. I hope you have an awesome New Year Gabrielle, and you had a great Christmas!


  32. These colors are incredible! Beautiful photographs as well. x

  37. I haven't tried this brand before but now I'm interested. What a gorgeous set of lipstick! I really love the shades! Just looking at the shades I think I'd go with Bare and Adoration. They are both equally stunning and practical.

    Have a happy new year!

  38. Beautiful photos, you always have the best flatlays and photos in general! :) These lipstick shades look lovely! I still haven't tried any of their cosmetics but I know you've mentioned their brand a few times :) xx

  39. What a stunning array of shades! I've not actually heard of Mii before but Sassy is certainly a very 'me' colour! I always look for long lasting products so it's a big tick from me!

    Musings & More

  40. You know any dark colors would do for me! Therefore, 2 of 4 shades here would be great on my lips! The pigment seems nice and I would love to try them all!

  41. Wow, what beautiful colours! They all look really wearable and are perfect for this season.
    I hope you have a very happy new year!

  42. Gabrielle, I am really impressed with this brand. You've featured them before and the quality is really beautiful. Love the lippy shades.

  43. Hope you had a merry Christmas too, Gabrielle! I have never used this brand, but absolutely adore the coral shade. I need to be a bit more daring with my lippy colours, something I may need to explore in the new year! Thanks for sharing,
    Jaz xoxo

  44. Lovely lipsticks! I also like Bare the most. I panicked when I saw that shiny lips have become sort of outdated. I try to use all the volumizing tricks in the book. However, I've recently noticed that lighter (matte) colors also do a great job. Thanks for sharing!

  45. I love matte lipsticks.
    Theses colors are perfect !

  46. Sassy...what a cool name for a lipstick!! Gorgeous colour, too :)


  47. I love the article! Great overview! I adore matte lipsticks, although I haven't tried the dark ones yet. But after your article, I think I'll try one. They are just too pretty :) xoxo Danuta from the recipettes
