Lovin it!!: My Miss Claire Eyeshadow Collection


Eyeshadows have become my latest obsession. From cheap local brands to MAC I want to try them all. Recently while shopping for shoes from a local shoe and bag shop, I spotted some eyeshadow singles in a box. I was instantly drawn to these Miss Claire eyeshadows singles and ended up not buying bags or shoes but picking up three of these beauties. Later when I researched on the net, I found out that a lot of people have been getting these amazing eyeshadows which are made in Korea. The rave reviews on the net are certainly justified because these are some of the best eyeshadows I have judging by quality and the cheap price tag. Of course I went back and picked a lot of other colors as well. Now my collection has swelled up to around seven Miss Claire eyeshadows




Price and Packaging: They are priced at just Rs 95 for 2 grams!!!!! J J How cool is that. I think I am going to pick all the colors. The packaging is super cute. These round black “dibbis” with plastic see through covers are my absolute favorite. The shades do not have names but numbers which along with the list of ingredients and other details is written on the bottom of the “dibbi”. I can plop it into my purse and carry it anywhere.



Texture: The eyeshadows have a satin finish with a slight sheen. Blending is super easy as the eyeshadows are extremely smooth and do not have any fallout. They have matt finish eyeshadows and shimmery eyeshadows as well. The dark blue eyeshadow I have is a matt finish one. I think I also spotted a matt brown and an extremely shimmery silver gray as well in that huge collection.

Pigmentation: Pigmentation and the color payoff is awesome and one swipe gives you amazing color. There is no problem with creasing and even without a primer it stays on and on. With MAC Groundwork paint pot as base I think this lasted for more than seven to eight hours once!!!

0723: Simmery Olive Green and 0901: Golden Brown

0113: Metallic pink and 0951: Metallic brown 

0315: Cranberry, 0451: Matt Dark blue and 0418: Metallic Blue


What Do I Not Like

  • Names people..someone give these beautiful eyeshadows some names. I get so muddled when I am searching for something.
  • Availability is the biggest issue. I think you can find this easily in Pune and Mumbai. I don’t know about other places.
  • Most shops having these do not have testers so it is a hit or miss. 
Go run and get this if you know where you can find it. You will certainly not be disappointed. I am collecting all of these:)
