Mii Cosmetics | Velvet Radiance Face Base

Mii Cosmetics Velvet Radiance Face Base
Does anyone else find they experiment more with makeup during the warmer months of the year?  I'm definitely guilty of this, which makes discovering this incredible new release by Mii Cosmetics aaaall the more exciting mid-winter.  Introducing the shiny new... Velvet Radiance Face Base!  Available in sixteen shades, the face base matches a wide range of skin tones, meaning you can kiss goodbye to that nearly-but-not-quite colour match.  So the question is, after putting it to the test and wearing it over these past few weeks, how has the Velvet Radiance Face Base performed?

First and foremost, let's start with the most important factor: coverage.  Personally, I adore mid-full coverage with a weightless feel.  What I don't want is to feel as though I'm heading outdoors with a pancake slapped on my face.  With this in mind, Mii Cosmetics' Velvet Radiance Face Base has been a total winter-weather blessing; mid-full coverage with a natural appearance.  I've been wearing Truly 03 and loving it; particularly the yellow undertone that has done a fabulous job at concealing pink tones around my nose!

Pretty good.  Thanks to Mii Cosmetics' focus on natural beauty, the Velvet Radiance Face Base doesn't offer a crazy glow, however it does offer a subtle radiance.  No dull, dehydrated skin here.  My advice?  Add a drop or two of L'Oreal Champagne Highlighting Drops to the face base before applying; it'll provide that extra boost some of you may be wanting on these gloomy winter mornings!

P R I C E

At £28 the price point is fairly average for face bases and foundations.  One thing is for sure, if it's weightless mid-full coverage you're looking for, you won't be disappointed.

  4. Gorgeous! I've never heard of this brand, but the finish and coverage sound perfect for me. I notice they don't seem to be carried in the major beauty stores in the U.S. yet and I like to test my foundations before I buy them (my deathly pale skin is SO hard to match!). Is there a beauty shop in the U.K. that physically carries it? Maybe the next time I pop over, I could add this to my list of things to try.

  8. I've never heard of this brand before but the foundation sounds really good! Winter tends to be when I try new products too, so I might have to give this a try. And I love that it is cruelty free!

  17. I feel like this is a product for me because I like medium coverage and lightweight formulas but I'm only scared that I might have problems with finding an ideal shade.

  22. Adore the chic packaging of this face base, it looks so much more expensive than it actually is! Sounds perfect for me too as I'm quite similar in the respect that I don't like my make-up feeling too heavy but still require some coverage!

  23. The coverage of the foundation sounds great! With finish, it's the two main things I always look at when getting a new foundation. I have to say though, the packaging is also gorgeous and looks very luxurious. Thank you for sharing your thoughts Gabrielle!

  27. While I love a lightweight mid coverage foundation, the glow isn't something I am after, so I don't think it would work for me.
