New Serum Concealers Have Arrived!

Updated: Apr 12, 2018

I mentioned in my previous blog on concealers that Mii Cosmetics were rumoured to be bringing out an amazing new serum concealer... well it's arrived! It came into the salon earlier this month and I purchased one the day it arrived I love it so much!


Double Delight Concealer & Serum £22.00


As the photo above shows, it twists up like a lipstick and this is the concealer. What you can't see from the photo is that if you twist the bottom half, that's the serum part, which is a tinted eye serum. It has an applicator like a lipgloss wand.


You apply the serum first by dabbing it on under the eye with the wand and blend using your ring fingertip outwards from the inner corner of your eye as this stimulates circulation, and allow to dry. Then apply the concealer. When I first looked at it, I didn't realise that it was in two parts so I just used the concealer (the lipstick part) and I bought it on that basis alone! The concealer is really lightweight but with excellent coverage. I have since used the combination of serum and concealer and now I REALLY love it! The serum is tinted and lightweight. You could get away with just using the serum alone.


What's more girls... this Double Delight Concealer does not crease!! Soooo much better than any other concealer I have ever tried.

These new serum concealers, aptly named Double Delight Concealer & Serum, are part of Mii Cosmetics's New Nude Ambition collection for Spring/Summer 2018. Also in the collection is the Illusionist Translucent Powder....



Illusionist Translucent Powder £24.00


I love the fact that this powder is all contained beneath a fine fabric mesh (think fishnet tights!) so as you apply your brush to the powder, it delivers a small amount. So much better than having to tip powder into the lid of the pot. Once you have applied the Illusionist Translucent Powder to your brush and tapped off the excess (Mii recommend their Finishing Brush), then gently sweep under the eye area to set the concealer for long lasting effects.


As a (ahem) slightly more mature lady I'm always a little cautious of adding powder under my eyes as it can sit in the creases so I waited a few mins for the concealer to dry ... if I'm honest, to see if the combination created creases... and guess what - no creasing!! Best results I've seen in a concealer. I then only added the slightest amount of the Illusionist Translucent Powder and was pleased to see that it did not create any creasing either so all good!


You can also use a light dusting of this Illusionist Translucent Powder across your T-zone to prevent shine.


Also in the Nude Ambition Collection is a Double Delight Blush & Bronze set...


Double Delight Blush & Bronze £25.00


I am a big fan of bronzer and have previously purchased Mii Cosmetics's bronzing trio which I use every day... the bronzer in this collection is more subtle and actually more of a contour. Sweep this bronzer across the cheekbone and into the hairline to achieve a soft contour/sun kissed look. Add a pop of peachy colour by brushing across the apples of you cheeks in upward strokes. I am loving this peachy blush!


Our tester stand is all set up so come and have a play and try out these gorgeous new products for yourselves.
