Some people just love their nude lip shades and I am one of those highly dedicated to beige.
But times change – I no longer frequently wear deathly nudes that fade into my skintone…no…if one is to do nude it must have some pigment, it must be flattering and juicy.
I have been looking for a Sofia Vergara (from Modern Family!) nude for a while. She rocks browny nudes to well.
Then I get this beautiful lipstick from Mii Cosmetics – the Moisturising Lip Lover Lipstick in Hush.
An example of Sofia’s make up:
Hush is a brownish-rose nude. It is warm and I can see why some people would hate this lip colour but on my skintone which is warm olive – it works like a dream.
I love looking at nude lipsticks in the barrel…to me it is just biteable!
Mii say “our ultra moisturising lipstick’s active ingredients help soften and improve the condition of your lips with every wear. The weightless formula glides on lightly to deliver a long-lasting sheen.”
The formula is delicious. I try a fair few lipsticks and this one made me go ‘ooh’. It is not so creamy that it melts or goes everywhere – it is not fragile in the barrel like some creamy lipsticks. It’s super soft though and glides on feeling almost like an application of lipbalm (chapstick type!) and as it settles, I felt it being even more moisturising and I daresay, plumping.
Swatch – at this point I wondered if it would be too warm:
I found it the perfect nude for me at the moment (with coppery eyes!).
I found the formula to last ok on the lips – 2 hours before reapplication (although that’s with a cup of coffee).
On the lips:
Another view – it makes the lips quite glossy:
LOVE this lipstick, the colour and formula. The full range is here for £14.95 each – there are some nice looking colours so I may get others!
