Swatches and Review--Mirabella Colour Sheer in Posy

As you may have read previously, I really liked my Mirabella Colour Sheer lip color in the shade Daydream, which I received through my ipsy subscription. (Swatches and review are linked here.) I was excited to receive another shade, Posy, in a trade on

Application was smooth and easy to control. Posy applied creamy, but without being slippery, much like Daydream. It felt moisturizing for about four hours without eating or drinking, slightly more moisturizing than Daydream for me. Daydream is a ladylike shade, whereas Posy is a little sassy. I need both to express myself. :)

Posy is very pigmented, but sheer to start, as it is supposed to be.  It is very easy to build, however. Shown below is one swipe on the right, and six swipes on the left.

Alrighty, the before photo with bare lips, natural light indoors: 

And the after photo below, natural light indoors. I am not wearing any lip liner or other lip products for these photos other than Posy.

The photo in which I'm not smiling turned out much better, and is the most true-to-color photo (at least, on my monitor):

The next photo is in artificial light indoors (what am I always looking at off to the side?):

These closeups are outdoors in natural light, but the clouds had rolled in:

Mirabella sells their Colour Sheers for $22.00 each on their Web site, in 14 different shades. I have to be honest and say that I do not pay those type of prices for a lip color, so I am glad that I received my two Colour Sheers through my ipsy subscription and through a trade. As a matter of fact, I can't think of a single beauty product that I pay that much, sales, samples, and trades for me! Otherwise, my 'stash' wouldn't be so large.

In any case, I am very happy with Posy. Moisturizing, colorful, creamy, and flexible enough to be sheer or opaque. What do you think?

  1. Gorgeous! It looks really pretty on you. I also have this color but it doesn't look good on me. I love daydream though :)

    1. Thanks, Souly! I would have thought that Posy would look good on you. We do have completely different skin tones, though, so you can probably rock different colors than I can.
