Miss Claire Soft Matte Lip Creams in shade 12, 31 and 42- Review and Swatches
Hello My Angels 🙂
I hope you all are enjoying the weekend. Its been close to 3 weeks since I posted anything on this blog and I really missed writing and interacting with you all. I was super busy due to the New Job I got recently, the good thing is it is very close to my home and I get all the Saturdays off …yayy 🙂
More to this…later on. Today I am going to review the most talked about Budget Lipsticks in India. Indian Beauty bloggers are talking and raving about these Miss Claire Soft Matte Lip Creams which actually are dupe of NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams. I have reviewed three shades from NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams, mentioning the link below:
I too joined the bandwagon and bought three shades. Lets jump to the details and My Review 🙂
MRP: They retail between Rs. 200 to Rs. 250. I got them from Rs. 200 from a nearby cosmetics store called Venus. However they are available online at Habbana for Rs. 250. I am mentioning the link below in case you want to check the whole range:
Description by Miss Claire:
It’s not lipstick, nor is it gloss. It’s like nothing you’ve experienced before. It is a lipstick cream that goes on silky but looks soft matte.
They have 43 Shades on Habbana: 01, 03, 05, 06, 07, 08, 10, 11, 12, 15A, 16A, 17A, 18A, 20, 23, 24, 25, 26, 27, 28, 29, 30, 31, 32, 33, 34, 35, 36, 37, 38, 39, 40, 41, 42, 43, 44, 45, 46, 47, 48, 49, 50, 51
True to Brand’s claim, these lipsticks are super matte. They go soft and creamy on lips and sets into Matte finish quickly; same as NYX Matte Lip Creams. The texture is not smooth and lightweight as NYX ones but it is very close. The formula is drying matte hence It is advisable to properly exfoliate and moisturise the lips before applying them.
The packaging is ditto copy of NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams, the slight difference i see is that Miss Claire Lip creams have Shiney black Cap and NYX ones have Matte black Cap but then it is hardly noticeable. They even have the same fragrance as NYX ones, I mean they have literally copied each and every aspect…wow…and that too at such an affordable price. The shade numbers are written at the bottom of the lip creams.
All the three shades are nicely pigmented and shows on the lips in one swipe. You just need second swipe to even out the coverage.
The one negative aspect is the “Wear time”, Miss Claire ones have the wear time of 4-5 hours only. They do not survive full meal, the color fades(totally) from the middle and corner of the lips and you definitely need to do the touch-up. The good thing is that the touch-up is easy unlike many other liquid lipsticks where you have to scrape the whole lipstick and then apply it again. With Miss Claire ones, the touch-up is very easy, you can fill in the gaps with the wand or layer the Lippie.
I am summing up the Pros and Cons for a Quick Review:
- Sleek Packaging which is easy to carry and colored tube helps in Easy Recognition of Color.
- Large Selection of Colors- 43 shades are available online at Habbana.
- Lightweight and Creamy Texture.
- Glides Smoothly on Lips.
- The applicator provides a precise finish and is very easy to use.
- Highly Pigmented, one swipe covers the lip perfectly.
- 4-5 hours of wear time.
- Touch-up and Re-application is easy as these does not get patchy.
- The Formula is not immensely dry.
- Does not Transfer on Cups/glasses.
- Does not survive meals as the color fades(totally) from the middle and corner of the lips.
- Not an ideal formula and texture for Severe dry lips. You need to exfoliate your lips and moisturize them before the application.
- Accentuates the Lip Lines after few hours of Wear time.
