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?

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,
