Miss Claire Soft Matte Lip Cream 17 A Review & FOTD!

Hello Sunshine,

Miss Claire Soft Matte Lip Cream 17 A Review & FOTD!
Miss Claire Soft Matte Lip Cream 17 A Review & FOTD!

So yesterday I went for the Organic Harvest event in Juhu for their store launch. On my way back home I thought I’ll visit the Beauty centre Khar as I haven’t been there from a long long time. I went along with my blogger friend Natasha as she wanted to shop too. I was clear in my mind that I am not splurging more on make-up. I was simply going to accompany my friend. But I also knew that I will not come out empty-hand 😛 I decided I’ll buy some minor stuff like a lip pencil. So we directly went to the Miss Claire section, I saw my friend picking this shade and was very keen to try it out. I thought I’ll pick this for myself too. Also, I bought a Party queen colour elixir lipencil and unique style lip pencil. Natasha mentioned that the shade 17A is a closer dupe of Kylie lip kit range. I am sure it is now..17A is such a gorgeous everyday shade. I couldn’t wait to review the shade that I bought yesterday. And here I am…Mind you! I have started using Miss Claire in the year 2011. Where everyone use to buy Lakme. My first products were VOV, Miss Claire and INCOLOR Cosmetics. That time they weren’t so famous. But now they are all over the blogosphere.

Product 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.

Price – I got mine for Rs. 180 for 6.5gms but the price varies from Rs. 120 to 300 depending on the place.  Its easily available in Mumbai stores. Instagram stores have also started selling it.

Ingredients –

Packaging –  The packaging is exactly like NYX lip crème’s. It comes with a wand for easy application in a tube form of packaging. It is travel friendly and light-weight. The lip cream being thick in consistency doesn’t drip. The packaging supposed to display the shade in the tube. However, I feel the shade is pretty different when swatched or applied on lips. One has to check a tester before buying.

My Experience with Miss Claire Soft Matte Lip Cream 17A

The shade 17 A is a beautiful peachy browny pink kinda shade which makes it a perfect daily wear. The texture of this lip creams are soft and smooth. The only criteria would be to exfoliate your lips before application. It doesn’t accentuate fine lines and looks very pretty on the lips. It is wet on application which settles into a soft matte texture.  These are thoroughly pigmented. Two swipes is more than enough for medium to full coverage. It hides pigmented lips and doesn’t give a patchy look. My lipsticks usually transfer a lot but with this on my lips I can sip as much as coffee as I want. It doesn’t transfer and stay true to its base. This shade has been compared to Kylie’s lip collection repeatedly. I am so impressed with this shade that I want to get a back up of this so that I never run out of it. This shade will suit fair to medium-dark skintones the most. It has a pleasant vanilla fragrance. It doesn’t feel heavy on the lips. The lip creams survive lighter meals but tends to fade away a bit if you consume oily food. This stays for around 6hrs on my lips which is pretty long lasting. There is variety of shades to pick from this range. I already have 4 shades but this is my cult favourite.

The only thing I don’t like about the Miss Claire lip cream is the different price range everywhere. If you can buy it in the right price frame then this is a steal. I am getting a back up for this soon.

 

Colourpop Ultra matte Liquid Lipstick Avenue Review & FOTD!

Hello ladies,

Colourpop Ultra matte Liquid Lipstick Avenue Review & FOTD!
Colourpop Ultra matte Liquid Lipstick Avenue Review & FOTD!

Few weeks back I gave a treat to myself by buying Colourpop Ultra matte lip liquid lipsticks. These were in my wishlist from quite a long time and finally I gave in and bought three shades Avenue, Scrooge, Bad habit. I am so glad I purchased them and wish to get few more in my bucket. However, this time I am really hoping any of my friends bring it to me from abroad. Because sellers in India charge double the price for this product. I got it at a very reasonable price though from an Instagram seller named Nowandwowchennai. Everything came faster and intact and the product was absolutely original. From the time I have got these ones, all my other lipsticks feel abandoned. Read on to know why… Product Description – Step 1: Make sure your lips are bare and dry! Step 2: Apply matching lip pencil for a precise and perfected application. Step 3: Apply Ultra Matte Lip with the applicator or your favorite lip brush. **For smoothest finish always exfoliate your lips first! This thin and lightweight formula glides onto the lips smoothly and leaves SUPER intense pigment-rich colour with a bold, ultra matte look. It’s very long wearing and completely kiss proof! We suggest storing these babies upright and shaking before application!

Price – on website $6.00 USD (I got it for Rs. 625 from Nowandwowchennai + shipping) Packaging – The packaging is cute and classy. The branding is done in multi-colours and the liquid lipstick comes in a transparent lip gloss form with an applicator. Be very careful while removing the product and try to remove only as much as you need. Remember less is more!

My Experience with Colourpop Ultra matte Liquid Lipstick Avenue – I always thought NYX makes the best set of lip crèmes but Colourpop has totally changed my opinion. I am absolutely in love with these liquid lipsticks. I wish I can own all the shades from this range. The liquid lipstick is wet on application and settles down into an ultra matte shade. The shade is a deep brown red which looks classic. One of the shades that I’ve been always looking for in Indian brands but never found one. All the shades in this range are so unique and worth a try. The application could be tricky so make sure you are careful with lining your lips. If you are good at it you won’t even need a lip liner. First go with the natural lines of your lips and then fill the center. It stays on forever and therefore only a make up remover can remove it completely. Avoid eating oily food while you wear this or it can make your lips look messy. This is such a beautiful shade for the one who admire darker shades. Your lips look fuller and so pouty all the time. This lipstick brightens up my complexion alone and I don’t feel the need to put any make up. It comes with a word of caution though; exfoliate your lips thoroughly before application. These have a tendency to show your flaky lips. Overall I totally recommend this shade from the range. You are going to enjoy the smooth application.
