Mii is a cosmetics company owned by Gerrard International; a brand which has a unique outlook on the beauty industry. Their fundamental mantra is to inspire confidence within women. They don’t agree, as a brand, with uploading hugely unattainable images of pretentious beauty. They wish to portray a female reality, and create make-up that accentuates confidence. Wow, like the sound of these guys already. I’m sold!
I’ve been trying a selection from the Mii Cosmetics Supernova Collection, including their liquid lipsticks, liquid pen eyeliner and (hold your breath), their Glitter Glam Liner.
I have to say I am an avid lipstick wearer; I rarely go a day without sporting it. And I am hugely impressed with Mii’s Power Matte Lip Creams. The finish is just right, not too glossy and not so matte that it becomes drying. The colours are on trend, (as seen in swatches), and the packaging is pretty. The optical illusion of the lip cream being a traditional lipstick had me wondering how to open it for the best part of 5 minutes. I adore the packaging, it’s different and it works – just like the brand.
I also trialled the marker pen eyeliner. I must admit I’m not a fan of these pens, I struggle to line my eyes with anything other than liquid eye liner. However, this was super pigmented and relatively (I’ll use the term loosely, due to my lack of skill) easy to use. Given, the marker isn’t thin so you may end up with a slightly thicker wing – but you can use it for your daily wing for sure.
Unfortunately I was slightly disappointed with the Glam Glitter Liner – I would have preferred a thicker, more thorough consistency. The glitter comes out in a translucent way, as you can view in swatches. It would be great for more natural glitter looks, but this isn’t one for your festival faces I’m afraid guys.
Overall, I’m impressed with the quality of the Mii products and really admire what they stand for. My prediction is that this brand will go far! Find the Mii Cosmetics Supernova Collection here from September.
