My Review: Miss Claire Soft Matte Lip Creams

My Review: Miss Claire Soft Matte Lip Creams :

Hello Girls,

As it is said " Start each day with your favorite lipstick and a beautiful smile"....For me both things definitely add a spark to a regular monotonous day!!

So, Today its all about my favorite makeup product "Lipsticks"!!! I would be reviewing very much loved and appreciated Miss Claire Soft Matte Lip Creams...
I have two shades No. 30 and No.52



Miss Claire soft matte lip creams are very famous these days and considered as a perfect dupe of NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams. Even the names are similar...



About the Product:
  • It says: It's not a lipstick nor is it a gloss. It's nothing like you have experienced before. It's a lipstick that goes on smoothly but looks matte.
  • Affordable Pricing 
  • Large Color range to choose from.
  • Smooth & Creamy texture
  • soft and comfortable on lips
  • No chapping of lips from its use
  • Beautiful matte finish
  • Long staying power
  • Travel Friendly 
  • Vanilla kind of  soft fragrance
  • Basic Oval Applicator 
  • Great Pigmentation. However, it does vary from shade to shade.


My Experience:

Miss Claire Soft Matte Lip Creams are loved so much...Specially all the beauty bloggers have been raving about them. These are not new in the market, have been there from quite some years now...But these are definitely one of the most loved affordable lipsticks!!!

The main attraction being Miss Claire Lip creams are considered perfect dupes for the NYX Soft Matte Lip creams and yet there is a huge difference in the pricing of both the brands.



The Pigmentation of the lip creams are really good. However I would like to add that pigmentation tends to differ sometimes from shade to shade. The application is smooth and creamy and it dries out to be matte. Very comfortable on lips. It stayed on me for around 4-5 hours. The formula of these are really good and sits quite comfortably on the lips without feeling stretchy or dry feeling. I would say it is a perfect formula for a matte lipsticks!!!!

I have two shades. Number 30 and Number 52.

Number 30 is a mixture of Pink, Red with little bit of Neon Orange undertones. Its a very trendy Bright Pinkish Orange Color.
Number 52 is a absolutely a stunner!! I am sure I am going to wear this shade a lot. It is a beautiful Mauvish Pink.. 


Downsides of these Lip Creams would be, first of all the Pigmentation is not uniform throughout. Number 52 is much more pigmented and opaque than Number 30. I have inserted swatches of both the colors.

Secondly, Its availability & Pricing: Still availability is an issue. You cannot find them everywhere like Lakme or Maybelline. You can find them here and there on local cosmetics shops or on some websites like Amazon, Habbana etc. Now a days there are few Instagram pages, which sell these.
Also, the pricing is not uniform. They may vary from INR 190- 300, which is little bit annoying.

But if you can get your hands on these, these are just worth all the praise... Within few uses, it has already become my absolute favorite!! :)

Here is the Amazon Link from where you can buy these. There are bunch of shades available:



Rating-4.5/5

Totally Love them. Highly Recommended!!!! :)

Review:

The narration style of the author is very easy and interesting. The pace of the story is fast and in a comfortable language. No big and complicated jargons used. The book is apt, if you are looking for quick yet interesting read. If you are travelling, you can carry it and enjoy!

It a story about a business tycoon who is super successful and is blinded by money and its power. His way of looking at life is totally materialistic with no emotions and humbleness. All he wants is fast success. After multiple warnings from the "City of Justice", he continues his way of life by insulting people and using them for his own benefit. Until one day he is dead and taken to the City of Justice, where he is shown his whole life and his deeds.

Will he realize his mistakes and wrong doings? Will he want to correct them if given a second chance? Will he get a second chance....

Do read the book if these questions interests you.....What will this Egoistic Man will do?

The book has a simple story yet a powerful message!! It tells although we all are running for success, sometimes it is important to stop and look back and see if ours deeds are correct. Basically, It revolves around the concept of Karma and tells that a man needs to face the consequences of his deeds eventually!

I personally really like books which are interesting to read, yet have some meaningful message attached!! It just make reading a better experience for me....

You can buy this from Amazon: Here is the link for your help:
I am sure you will get some amazing discount.


Rating- 4/5

I really like the book and is a light read. The message of Karma is powerful..

Till my next post, Happy Reading!!! :)

My Review: Coconex Coconut Oil

My Review: Coconex Coconut Oil:

Hi Friends,

Hope everyone is doing great and enjoying the festive season!! :-)

Coconut Oil is something which is not new in my skincare and hair care regime.I have been using Coconut Oil for my hairs since many years now or I may say since my childhood. Also, during the winters when skin becomes too much dry, I have used Coconut oil.
Not only this, Coconut Oil has way too many uses apart from these basic uses. I have already done an article on this telling Great Uses of the Coconut Oil

Recently, I was introduced to a new brand of Coconut Oil called as Coconex. It is a Pure virgin Cold Pressed Oil, suitable for hairs and skin. I have used it many times now and here is everything about the product you guys need to know and how was my experience using it.




Coconex have their own website from where you can purchase and also the brand is quite present and active on the social media platforms. Here are the links, where you can check the brand.

Facebook: @cococnexoil 


About the Product:
  • It is a Pure Virgin Cold Pressed Coconut Oil
  • Ideal for Skin and Hair Use
  • Ingredients include Virgin Coconut Oil, Aloe Vera, Jojoba Oil, Vitamin E and Vitamin A
  • Coconut Oil helps to moisturize hairs as well as skin. Helps to improve the texture of the damaged hairs.
  • Aloe Vera is very beneficial specially for skin, as it helps to remove sun tan, heals Sun Burns and helps to remove stretch marks. Aloe Vera also reduces dandruff as it has anti bacterial properties in it.
  • Jojoba Oil works as an excellent Hair Conditioner. It also helps to reduce hair fall. Jojoba oil is also known to reduce acne and considered to be good for Oily skin. It is also beneficial in reducing the effects of sunburn.
  • Vitamin E works extremely well as a moisturizer and also helps to control premature aging and lighten the dark spots. Vitamin E work equally good for hairs as it will nourish the hairs and control split ends. Also, it will help to stimulates the hair growth. 
  • Vitamin A protects the skin from the UV rays. It also helps to reduce pimple, acne etc and hence helps to clear out and glow beautifully.
  • Comes in a light blue colored bottle.
  • Retails for INR 180 for 60ml of product
  • You can get this from their website  coconex.com. Make sure to use special coupon code "SH20" to get 20% discount.
  • Light weight texture
  • Has a mild fruity fragrance
  • Works as a natural sunscreen
 Also, I would like to take a moment to explain what exactly " Pure Virgin Cold Pressed" Coconut Oil means: It means that the oil has been extracted by pressing the coconut milk out of the Coconut, at quite a low temperatures. This way it is ensured that all the Nutrients and the Antioxidants, Minerals remain intact. So, If an Oil is extracted through this method, it obviously makes it more effective and pure.


My Experience:

Firstly, the quality is really amazing. Cold pressed oils are always better than the normal refined oil. So, it is always great to get a product which have awesome ingredients and more importantly the method used to manufacture it ensures that the nutrients are intact and users can get maximum benefits from the same.




The texture is quite thin and get absorbed into the scalp or skin instantly. For my hairs I generally applied this oil overnight and washed it off next morning. I could definitely feel my hairs to be more shiny and manageable. They were bouncy and not at all sticky..




Currently I am not experiencing any hair fall problem, so could not comment how much will it work to control hair fall. Also, the fruity fragrance mixed with that coconut oil could be annoying to some people. I personally would have preferred it to smell like just authentic coconut oil and not a mix of strawberry\vanilla and coconut.

Shelf Life is 2 years, which I think is pretty decent.

But the quality this Brand is offering is really commendable. It is very safe to be used on skin. My friend is using this oil to treat her cracked heals and it is working pretty good. It do provide ample amount of moisturisation and keep the skin nourished.




I would suggest that if you are looking for a new Coconut Oil to try and specially when winters will be approaching soon, you should give it a try.It will work great as a body lotion too. It is of INR180. But I have a special coupon code of 20% off specially for my readers. Make sure you take full advantage of it . It is "SH20". Buy here

Rating- 3.5/5

My Review: Epigamia Greek Yogurts

My Review: Epigamia Greek Yogurts:

Hello Friends,

Hope you all are doing great and staying Fit!!

Having a bowl of Curd everyday is nothing new specially in our Indian homes. It is something which our mothers had taught us to do since childhood. But sometime back Yogurts have become really popular in the market. The first time I heard about it, my first question was - What is the difference between Curd and Yogurt?
So, Both Curd and Yogurt are very similar kind of Dairy Products. The method of preparation is also quite similar, however the major difference being is the strain of Bacteria present in them.
Curd has only one strain of Bacteria named as Lactobacillus whereas Yogurt is made with two strain of Bacteria named as Lactobacillus Bulgaris and Streptococcus Thermophilus. Also, Yogurt will always taste little sour as compared to the basic Curd.Lets just say Yogurt is little more healthier version of plain curd. It has many Vitamins, Calcium, Protein and other minerals. Yogurt is an excellent thing to include in your daily diet. It helps to boost up the immune system of the body. Yogurt is good for digestion and also might help in weight loss.

With all those amazing benefits being said, my next question was If it is that healthy, is it tasty?? Again, one another thing we are used to, is Healthy Food means Boring & Tasteless.. :)

The answer to this question is Yes!! Flavored Yogurts taste delicious....

Recently I got to try few variants of Floured Yogurts of a brand called as Epigamia. They are so amazing!!




Basically, Epigamia make Greek Yogurts. These are prepared through ancient Greek process of straining which makes them more creamier and thicker!! They have lot of flavors to choose from.. You can get these at grocery stores.

In India, we still do not have many Brands providing the Greek Yogurt. Definitely you should give this one a try.

About the Products:

  • Made from Pure Cow's milk  
  • 100% Vegetarian 
  • Great for weight loss OR Muscle gain 
  • Good Source of Calcium
  • Low Fat
  • High in Protein
  • Probiotics helps in digestion and lower bad cholestrol
  • Neatly packed in Colourful Cup
  • Appealing yummy flavors  
  • No added preservatives
  • No artificial colors added 
  • Price varies from INR 30 to INR 50 according to the variant
  • They have 2 types of Yogurt. One is simple flavored Yogurt and other one comes with the snack pack.
 It is not necessary to eat Yogurt only with the meals. These tasty Yogurts can be eaten as an evening snack too, when your stomach is feeling a little hungry and the dinner is still far away. This is an excellent healthy option specially in the summer times. It is also a brilliant snack to have in a breakfast. The different fruity flavors helps to feel refreshed instantly. It fills up your stomach and you end up getting loads of Nutrients!




If you are diet conscious then this thing will surely help you and it is also something which you will enjoy eating.




I tried some of the variants like Natural, Green Apple, Mango, Blueberry, Strawberry, Vanilla Bean, Wild Raspberry, Honey Banana. Some of them came with crispy snacks. Most of them were pretty delicious. The consistency is quite thick. The manufacturing and the expiry date are mentioned on the lid, which helps to know till when to consume these

Overall I think the quality and taste is really good. My personal favorite will be Mango and Strawberry! One should always incorporate healthy food like Yogurt in the daily regime to stay fit. Just start with your favorite Flavor.

Overall Rating- 4/5
