Miss Claire Lip Cream 08 Review & Swatches

Why dupes are famous splurge vs steal
Makeup is a woman’s best friend ! Be it moms, daughters, sisters or wives, all of them love it when they are given make up product as gifts ! This Mother’s day make sure you gift your mom a best make up products that suit her skin tone , its definite to put a smile on her face ! It can be a bold shade ;lipstick or a simple long staying kajalSmile Make up makes for the best gifts for moms ! :D
Now now not all of us have the money to spend huge amounts of money to spend on make up we want from high end brands. Either be a NARS blush or NYX lip cream, its hard to buy a beauty product that costs a huge sum, hence comes the entry of DUPES! There are plenty of  cosmetic brands out there that perform just as well as pricier versions in fancier packaging, and the savings can be significant.

Who wouldn’t love a splurged look on a splashed budget ? Affordable makeup is one thing we all look out for!

Why buy dupes?

I have often found myself falling in love with a product every time I read a beautiful review on beauty blogs , only to realise its too expensive or not available in my country! This is when the dupe of that particular beauty product makes life just a little easier 7 fun!
A dupe or an alternative option is a amazing thing for all makeup lovers ! Whether the original has long been discontinued, sold out (Happens every time you visit the Sephora counter and find the only shade you wanted labeled SOLD OUT!), or you can’t spend so much on makeup , dupes are here to save your day !

Miss Claire LipCream review


The come in a very light weight plastic bottle which are similar to NYX lip cream packaging! easier to carry while travelling and the applicator is a perfect one for it allows us easy and even application! I am a fan of the doe-footed applicator which allows precise application.I don’t need a mirror to apply these , it scores a ten on ten when it comes to packaging!


Creamy texture that glides smoothly on lips and settles into matte finish after a couple of minutes.


Single swipe gives good pigmentation

Staying Power:

Stays for 4 hours without fading with light non oily meals in between.

Shade/ Colour: 

A perfect pink which can be worn daily. All those who have a crush on pinks this is your perfect pink for daily wear!
Miss Claire LipCream review

My experience:

When NYX lippies were launched i was all gaga over them but then everytime I wanted to buy my favorite shade was either out of stock or sellers selling online hiked the prices of these lip creams hence when i heard about dupes of Nyx lip creams I was excited to try them and once I have used the Miss Claire Lip Creams I simply cannot resist buying all of the shades in Miss Claire Lip creams ! Love the whole package which includes excellent packaging, affordable(VERY) pricing, beautiful shades and fantabulous texture !


This is a issue for its always OOS on flipkart and Amazon and other sellers on Ebay and Shopc;lues sell them at double the prices hence one can buy them from Instagram sellers via Neft . I bought it from @Instamakeupdeal for INR199 and @Glam__it_up for INR 159 !

In a Nutshell:

If you are  fan of lip creams this is a MUST BUY ! Go buy them like NOW !

Pros :

  • Excellent staying power Lasts for about 5-6 hours easily!
  • Single swipe gives good pigmentation. Hides pigmentation of lips in one single swipe!
  • Matte texture
  • Feels lightweight on lips
  • Very good pricing !
  • Travel friendly packaging
  • Is available in many other shades
  • Has creamy texture that settles down with a nice matte finish.
  • Is a dupe of NYX Lip cream Addis Ababa which costs around INR 750

Cons :

  • Transfers a little
  • Needs exfoliated lips!
  • Availability an issue for not available online at the correct price!
BlingSparkle Rating: 4.8/5
BS Tip :
Exfoliate lips and buy them from a good seller instagram and stay away from sellers who sell fakes!

Nyx Lip cream Dupe v/s Miss Claire Lip creams

So my today’s review is on a dupe of a well known brand which unfortunately many cannot afford in India as the sellers selling them out charge double the price for they label them as ‘imported’, and imported stuff is always expensive here. Coming to the review I am reviewing Miss Claire 08 which is a dupe of the famous NYX Lip creams San Paulo !Read on to know more about the similarities and differences between both the brands !
The Similarities: Miss Claire Lip creams are one of the most popular Lip cream dupes out there and for good reason. It has the same applicator, packaging and formula along with texture!
Main Difference: Nyx lip cream doesn’t dry out lips and has strong staying power upto 7 hours with light meals in between. While Miss Claire lip creams are a lil more dry when applied and have less staying power. Both lip creams look totally indistinguishable when applied on lips. Also Miss Claire has a lot more shades than Nyx lip creams !
The Verdict: Save your money , don’t buy Nyx first copies instead buy original miss Claire Lip creams !
You save: A lot of money!
Best Part: So the next time you walk into Sephora and find out your favorite lip product is out of stock , go buy a inexpensive dupe which is easy on your pocket , no more sad face !
Instead of spending INR 1250 on a Nyx Lip cream (sold on amazon & flipkart), spend less than INR200 on NYX’s dupe
