Mii Velvet Radiance Face Base

I have featured Mii Cosmetics on my blog twice now, firstly with Luscious Lip Sheens (here) closely followed by Feature Length Lash Lover Mascara (here). Mii pronounced 'Me', is a brand who believes that beauty is often simply about having the confidence to be yourself. Having taken the feedback from thousands of women who use beauty salons to develop a totally new range of makeup. One that makes you feel beautiful whoever you are. Giving you the confidence to create a look that is unique, completely, unmistakably you.

Today I am sharing with you Mii Velvet Radiance Face Base which is described as being Mii’s weightless perfecting foundation. I am really picky when it comes to liquid foundation, at heart, I am more of a BB or CC cream kind of girl, I hate thick, gloopy liquid foundations which feel caked on and equally, I really dislike that paint like scent a lot of foundations seem to have too. In my lifetime, I have only ever found 2 foundations I quite like wearing and even then I've had to add something to the formula to make it work for me comfortably.

From Mii, we have a foundation which is described as being blendable, buildable and one which gives a satin-matte finish. It also works to soften fine lines, blur imperfections and smooth skin tone. It is available in 16 different shades, each shade is called Truly followed by a series of numbers starting with 00 and ending at 15. I was sent Truly shades 01, 02 and 03. Packaged in glass bottles, there is a pump action dispenser which I was delighted to see. It is lightweight on the skin to the point where you cannot actually feel it is there and whether you use a brush or a Beauty Blender, it blends like an absolute dream, doesn't oxidise and if you use a good primer, it doesn't cling to dry skin, so it definitely ticks those boxes. 

Infused with fresh carrot cells and seaweed extract, this product not only protects and tones but it also boosts hydration too.  I wear shade 01 which is a tad too dark for my skin tone, but, if I mix it with my tinted moisturiser, I can get the shade to work pretty well for me,
Mii Velvet Radiance Face Base Swatches
As you can see from the image above, the swatches are unedited and shown straight from the camera and there is quite a difference between each one of the shades.  At the top is 01 which is quite light, 02 is a just that little bit darker with a warmer undertone, come the Summer time when I have a bit of colour to my cheeks, I think it will work quite well  and shade 03 is much darker than I was expecting it to be and too warm for my skin tone. However, wSummertimeutely do love is the satin-matte finish which gives the skin that healthy radiant glow, something I definitely need thanks to the lack of Vitamin D I am getting.

I am really impressed with Velvet Radiance Face Base, I like how it sits on the skin, I like the finish and I am thankful it comes with a pump dispenser. Priced at £28 you can find Mii Cosmetics Velvet Radiance Face Base via their website here along with the rest of the collection.
