Mii Cosmetics are a brand that I have never heard of before so I was excited to try out their new AW 2017 Supernova Collection which is launching in September. This new collection doesn’t instantly scream A/W to me but I guess that is the beauty of makeup, anything goes and collections don’t have to be restricted by certain colours or what we expect from a season.
This collection for me is easy to wear makeup that has a subtle edge. The lip products are matte which is great for getting that long wear lip look and the eyeliner is my ideal shade. The liquid liner is perfect for adding a touch of glitter to your eye look and dare I say it, for the party season (Christmas isn’t too far away).
Mii Power Matte Lip Créme
These are available in 4 wearable shades which can take you from day to night. They have a matte formula packed with sweet almond and jojoba oils to help keep lips soft. They apply like a cream but dry down matte, once on the lip they look vibrant and have fantastic staying power. If you’re not a fan of how matte finishes can feel on the lips then these might not be for you as they are quite dry, but you do get a lip colour that is long wearing.
These have the nicest, sweetest scent and the doe foot applicator makes it easy to outline the lips with the edge then use the flat side to fill them in.
This is a gorgeous everyday peachy nude shade. It does apply a little patchy but if you wait for the first coat to dry and apply a second it evens out the coverage. I have also used a lip liner under this shade too and that can help it apply more smoothly and more evenly. I really like this shade and have been keeping it in my car for any occasion, it’s a colour that makes it look like I’ve made more of an effort than I have.
This is a vibrant fuchsia pink and it is seriously bright. It is the type of shade that brightens up any makeup look and makes you look instantly awake. I would say this was more of a Summer shade but it is always nice to have a pretty pink in your collection no matter what season it is. This applies so well and doesn’t bleed at all.
Perfect Christmas party red! Yep that is what I thought as soon as I applied this, it’s a stunning bold red that makes your makeup look pop. Christmas is the perfect excuse to work that red lip and this Mii one is just beautiful, it applies the best out of the four shades I have tried and I would use a lip liner just so you can get that really sharp defined edge and fill your lips in without making a mess.
Berries / plum shades are my favourite to wear in the colder months and I think they’re the shades that suit me best. Supreme is the perfect Winter berry, vampy shade but it takes a little patience to get the finish right, make sure you let the first coat dry before applying a second otherwise it just moves about and the finish is a little off.

Mii Show Stopping – Eyeliner
I love jumbo pen eyeliners and this new release from Mii is exactly that, it has a junky nib with a very precise tip so you can get both a thick, chunky line as well as a neat precise flick. This is an intense black shade but I did find it a little watery, however it was still quite a bold black. It isn’t the best liner I have used but I liked how easy and smoothly it applies and it is long wearing. If you have the time to apply two layers you will get your liner to be very bold and black.
Mii Glitter Glam Liner
I used to be obsessed with this kind of liner back in the late 90’s and I’m quite excited to have this in my collection. It is a mix of iridescent green, red, blue and silver micro flecks of glitter in a clear base, you can build this up to be quite intense or wear just one coat for a more subtle pop of glitter. I like to add this over my black liner so it looks bolder. This would have been fab for festival makeup looks, but I’m going to rock it anyway.
Let me know if you have tried anything from Mii Cosmetics and give me your recommendations.
