I often heard about the famous NYX lip creams and their amazing quality intrigued me to the core. But I am not quite a fan of the hefty shipping charges and so never got a chance try them out. The other day I went for some regular shopping after my exams and I came across Miss Claire lip creams. The price tag wasn't hurting, so I thought of giving them a try. I chose the safest shade for myself– my favorite MLBB color so that I can use it regularly. Do you think this product can match up to the NYX lip creams? Let's find out.

About Miss Claire Soft Matte Lip Cream 09:

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.

My Experience With Miss Claire Soft Matte Lip Cream 09:

Packaging: The lip cream comes in a transparent cylindrical plastic packaging with an opaque black screw cap that has the doe foot applicator attached to it. The packaging is nothing glorious but is simple for regular usage. It is travel-friendly and easily slips into a wallet or sling.
Shade: The shade 09 is deep beige brown and a perfect MLBB color for Indian skin tones. The color would no way wash out any skin tone. On fair skin, it will look a little brownish whereas on wheatish to dusky skin it will turn out to be an MLBB color. Thankfully, there's no hint of shimmer or glitter in the color. Needless to say, it is perfect for office or soft daytime looks. The color can be worn alone or underneath any lip color as well for a decent mattifying effect.

Texture: The consistency is a light whipped creamy layer and the creaminess remains after application on the lips. After a certain 15-20 minutes, the cream slowly settles as a matte layer without making the lips dry. I do have dry lips problem but the effect is perfect and doesn't hurt at all. It is a yummy vanilla smell, but it is not disturbing at all.
Pigmentation: A single swipe gives a decent color but for a complete opaque finish it requires a double swipe. If it is used on top of any lip color, a single swipe is enough. As a whole, pigmentation is really impressive.

Staying Power: The lip cream feels very creamy on application but dries down to a matte finish soon after. Once it has set into a matte finish, the lip color does not budge or fade for hours! The beauty of this product is that it doesn't budge or transfers at all. I simply adore this quality. On top of lipsticks, it remains for 6 hours or more with meals or snacks as well. I am thoroughly impressed with such staying power.

Final Note:

Apart from the availability issue which is a trivial one, the product is one amazing thing and I didn't feel like deducting any point! I am planning to hoard some more colors for my daily college wear. So if you want a nicely pigmented long lasting lip cream, do give it a try!
