If you’ve been a regular reader of my posts, you’d be aware about my long ongoing hunt for Miss Claire Soft Matte Lip Creams. I had looked up for these in all local cosmetics store and had made plans of going to Impressions Store (Karol Bagh, Delhi) for the same. But then, all of my summer holidays went by and I found none of my friend who could accompany me for buying makeup. Life’s cool with guy friends but sometimes they cannot be your buddies in girly things; not that I don’t have a best friend who amazingly selects the same lipstick colours for me on which I lose my heart. *LOL* Also, this review was to be uploaded a little earlier but the gloomy weather made it tough for the natural light to seep in between the thick layers of the clouds.
Miss Claire Soft Matte Lip Creams are definitely not one of those excessively drying liquid lipsticks but instead are quite soft and settles into matte finish within 2 to 3 minutes. On drying, the formulation does not emphasize upon the creases or lines of the lips. It does not feel heavy but light and is completely smudge or transfer proof. To an extent, it has the potentials of resisting water but after coming in contact with H2O, and then rubbing, the lipstick does smudge out. It can survive meals but post meals the colour intensity does lighten a little. It stays for more than 4 hours and the application too is hassle free due to its convenient wand that has a slant tip.
Shade 15A is a mute soft light pink which is appropriate for daily basis and goes well with heavy eye makeup. It will be suitable on fair to medium skin tone and would unfortunately wash away olive skin tone.While the shade 17A is more towards a darker pink in comparison to the 15A. It successfully adds a pop of subtle colour. These two shades can be categorized as n*de shades and my personal favorite is 15A.
(Excuse my loud tee :'-D Its one of those you buy when you are little and later think does it sting other people's eyes? Well, I was sold on seeing a yellow bow onto it which I later ended up removing hahaha)
I bought these matte lip creams from an online website known as- ohcutebox.com. My last post was on a mini haul which you can read here. They came along with a hand written letter and a 10% off coupon code for my next purchase. Overall, I really liked the Miss Claire Lip Creams and I intend to buy more shades. The only downside being that these aren’t easily available but you can buy these from various Insta stores or the website ohcutebox.com. This retails for INR 199 (Shipping Price: Rs 39) but the prices do vary since there is no fixed rate printed onto the pack.
