Miss Claire Soft Matte Lip Cream 01 Review and Swatch
I love matte finishes when it comes to lip colours these days and my NYX Amsterdam was getting over, i wanted to repurchase it and couldn't find it anywhere at a reasonable price. Finally Sephora launched its first store in Bangalore. I was planning to visit Sephora just to stock up on NYX, when I read about these budget friendly dupes from Mehak (at peachesandblush.com) and i decided to give these a try before restocking on NYX lip creams.
Price: Depends on where you are buying from, I got for 180 INR
Quantity: 6.5 g

Shade being reviewed : 01
The texture is again similar to NYX lip cream . It is creamy, feel light on the lips and sets down to give a semi matte finish in like 60 seconds after application. It is matte and lightly drying on lips so I properly moisturize and exfoliate my lips before applying this. These lip creams do transfer a wee bit and stay for about 4 hours with light snacks in between.
The shade 01 is warm red with orange undertones . I love shades like these which brighten up my face and suit most Indian skin tones. This is a sort of red every one can carry off without coming across as over the top. the pigmentation is amazing and with 3 swipes you get amazing coverage on pigmented lips. The Miss Claire Soft Matte Lip Cream shade 01 is red but it isn't anywhere close to NYX Amstredam which a true red with no undertones
Why I am currently obsessed with Miss Clarie Soft Matte Lip Creams?
- Super affordable
- Semi matte finish
- Stays for 4 hours easily
- Travel friendly packaging
- Highly pigmented
- Nice useful doe foot applicator
- Easy to apply unlike matte lipsticks which need to be applied with a lip brush
- Nice wearable red with orange undertone
- not too drying despite being matte
What could be better?
- Availability is a BIG issue
- shades have numbers not names
- settles on fine line if you don't exfoliate lips
Despite all its cons i love these lip creams deeply.
BlingSparkle Rating: 6/5 (Yes. That awesome)
Overall These are absolute must haves and if you love mate lip colours you should actually get more than one shade form this range. I already have 3 shades and i will soon be adding more to my collection. They are affordable, matte and stay for a decently long time, whats not to love? Go get them.
