Miss Claire Soft Matte lip cream in shade no. 42: Price, Review, Swatches & Where to buy!

Hello everyone!

I got up late this morning! There ain’t no possibility that I shall reach to the stop before my college bus comes and picks me up. So what do I do? Get ready in like 5-10 mins? Nah! I shall better utilize this time and upload this post online *wink*. So how is it going on with you guys?


Few weeks back; maybe some months passed away I guess, I purchased few makeup products from Impressions Store (Karol Bagh, Delhi). Plus you know my love for affordable lip lacquers! This gives us ample reasons for a detailed review on Miss Claire Soft Matte Lip cream in the shade ‘42’. Let’s dive in!

Description: It’s not lipstick, nor is it gloss. It’s like nothing you’ve experienced before. It’s lipstick cream that goes on silky but looks soft matte.

Net Weight: 6.5 grams

Price: I bought mine at INR 190. Online prices fluctuate somewhere between INR 280- 325. 

Where to buy! If you wanna buy these at counters and you reside within the heart of India, that is Delhi, then drop down to Impressions Store in Karol Bagh! It’s a Beauty Heaven!! Believe me. Book lovers can associate it like a library wherein they desire to spend all their day, amid those racks of trillions of books that may transport you to a completely different world! Otherwise you can buy these online. Earlier online availability too was an issue, but not anymore! Buy yours from Amazon by clicking here. In case your loyalties are with Flipkart, click here! Another great website being Ohcutebox.com, for which you may click here.


Packaging: If you have ever been glued to NYX store which only recently came to India, then you’d know how it looks an affordable dupe of their Soft Matte Lip cream. It seems the whole Miss Claire lip cream concept is inspired from NYX itself. The packaging is sleek, travel friendly and light weight. It does not leak and is made up of strong plastic; no where does it appear flimsy. Besides, it does not look cheap at all! 

Shade: The shade no. 42 is a soft maroon with very subtle hint of pink; like that pink appears only if it is applied light handedly. It would work so well as a fall lip color and the shade is gonna suit all skin tones alike, especially the Indian skin tone! I am not really a bold lip color fan; I stay away from reds but this shade tempted me and I even ended up wearing this at a skincare brand’s small event. Formal wear or ethnic; it’s gonna go well with all!


Texture: True to its name and description, it glides so smooth onto the lips like a gloss. So not hassle with you dragging the lip color. Within the duration of a minute, it sets into matte finish but the matte isn’t an extreme matte which feels uncomfortable and stretchy. It feels as if you’ve got your favourite lip balm smeared onto the lips thoroughly and the top most finish is kinda matte. In short, it does not have an uncomfortable matte texture. 

My Experience:
It’s not been the first time that I used these! I mean my first year into the blogging-sphere revolved within my quest in finding these Miss Claire Soft Matte Lip Creams. This one I think is my third shade and I still won’t mind buying more because to be honest, I intend to look out for budget friendly options. And if you are getting nice products at such a price range, then why not?

So, these lip creams are definitely long staying due to its matte texture. They have the potential to resist water but are not completely water proof. Drink something, eat a snack, it won’t budge! But in case post drinking it gets wiped by any reasons, it’s gonna come off. Snacking does make the intensity of the lipcolor go low but it leaves off a faint tint. Though, my other shades do not transfer to cups or glasses, somehow, this shade does transfer. Plus, this shade on settling is creamier too. After a proper meal, you would wanna run to a mirror and re-apply.

Also, the wand is dissected at an inclined manner, making it easy for defining the lips. You would not need to use separately a lip liner. It perfectly fits into the cupid bows and corners of the mouth. Earlier, I was hardly away how to work with liquid lipsticks. But applicator like these are so amazing that you don’t really need to start a war while applying a lipstick.

Pros:
   ·    Comfortable matte texture
   ·    Water resistant
   ·     Travel friendly packaging 
   ·     Affordable
   ·     Well designed applicator wand

Cons:
   ·    The color transfers

    This is how it looks on the lips: 

Rating: 4 out of 5.

Until Next Time,

Take Care <3

Jeju Volcanic Lava Self-Heating Clay Mask - Review

Hi Guys, Welcome back to the Glistening Lane ✨

Apparently, there are lots on skincare brands which are available internationally and I’m yet to try them out. Some of these brands, enclosed within my wish list include The Body Shop, The Faces Shop, Clinique, etc. Thankfully, Nykaa was running an offer on The Faces Shop skincare range wherein you could grab a full-sized freebie product. While I was surfing the catalogue, I encountered the “self-heating” mask which kept me intrigued enough to add it to my cart. I kid you not, there have been times when I’ve legit done window shopping online as well! 😃😄 I see trillion of things and later I’m like – “Do I really need this?”
And the mind always answers – “Of course not, girl!” 😂
A lot of the times, I force myself to hear the sensible talk of my mind. But sometimes, the heart takes over and it springs in joy to say “Woah! That’s too pristine to be denied”. This is exactly how I ended up purchasing Jeju Volcanic Lava Self-Heating Clay Mask
So…

My Cutesy Stash - Miniso Haul Unleash!

Hi Guys, Welcome back to the Glistening Lane ✨
Side Story - I intentionally changed the font of this blog post; reason as such is nothing but I decided to break-free from the monotonous font type. But unfortunately, the font decided to bug me later on so I ended up with the same comforting font. 
In today's blog post, I will be sharing with you all my recent haul from the store of Miniso. For people who haven't encountered a Miniso outlet as of yet, Miniso is a well known Japanese brand which brings to you a lot of quirky and cute stuff which is reasonably priced and none of your money will go wasted, trust me! They have an amazing collection of utility products from the genre of beauty, kitchenware, stationery, electronics, accessories, etc. Moreover, the prices of these products start from INR 150 and the maximum, I believe, is around INR 1000, that too for PU bags. 


Recently, I happen to discover another Miniso Delhi store which was mere 2 metro stations away from where I live.…

Surprise is the greatest gift which life can grant us.
Do you like surprises? I bet, you can’t say no to that.
Surprises are one of those quickest means of breaking the monotonous patterns of our lives. When I come back home from work, finding a courier onto my bedside table is what pumps up my excitement level. And this is exactly what happened on the evening of 31st of July. I kinda had a hunch that I’d receive my fab bag earlier this month, but getting it before the month actually starts, feels amazing! So without more jibber-jabber, let’s begin with the Fab BagAugust 2018unboxing.

Theme of the Month: Own the Glam When I think of the phrase “own the glam”, my mind draws an imagery of a glamorous girl. Therefore, I interlinked the theme with my expectations of having makeup products.
The Process of Product Selection: As expected, we have one of star products from the brand Sugar Cosmetics! 😍😍
Few days ago, I was sent a product selection email from the team of Fab Bag. Therein, a tota…
