Miss Claire Soft Matte Lip Creams were all the rage a year ago! Things went viral because they are a truly affordable dupe for the super popular NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams. Before this fact blew up on the internet I had never heard of the brand, so curiosity took over.
When Makeup Revolution officially launched in India around a year ago, I was eager to checkout their offerings since they are known for their affordable prices and shades that are dupes for many high-end colour cosmetic brands. I was in the market for a Nude Lipstick (let’s be real, when am I not! LOL) so I went for the shade Treat from their Amazing Lipstick Range.
MAC’s Extra Dimension Skin finishes are some of the best highlighters around. Shaft of Gold was a part of MAC’s Magic of the Night 2015 holiday collection. I am not sure if its still available but if you like the colour a good dupe is Bae Area by Colourpop. MAC describes it as a “deep bronze.” It’s a medium, orange-brown with warm undertones and a gold shimmer finish. Looks great on deeper Indian Skin Tones. It also makes for a nice day time eye-shadow.
Sometime ago I won a giveaway held by NYX Cosmetics in collaboration with Youtuber- Tshering Yangzom. Yeyy! I won a bunch of NYX products and one among them was this Highlighter/ Illuminator in shade Magnetic. NYX describes this shade as Peachy Pink with Gold Sheen and glitter.
Maybelline keeps reinventing its very popular and much-loved “Baby Lips” franchise with new packaging/ colour/ formula etc. at a pace that no one can keep up! Also goes out to show the present beauty-consumer’s insatiable appetite for the “New & Improved”! Admittedly I am also one of those consumer’s so I checked out the Grape Fruit variety of the Baby Lips Candy Wow.
This product has a mousse consistency and goes on the lips smooth and sets matte. It is quite pigmented and if one intends to use it on their cheeks; little will go a long way. The shade Burgundy Lush is great Red that will suit the Indian Skin Tone.
Paint Pot Eye Shadow’s from MAC’s Pro Long wear range are known to go-on creamy and give an intense finish. Indianwood is a metallic antique bronze colour.
