Review // Claire's Cosmetics Makeup Kit!

Saturday, August 15, 2015





Greetings dear readers!
I hope you had a lovely time celebrating Independence Day! Well, on this Eid, I received a gift from one of my lovely aunts and the present included an eye shadow palette and a makeup kit by Claire’s Cosmetics, which I’m going to review today. I was super excited to try something from Claire’s as this brand was recently launched in Karachi, Pakistan and my fellow bloggers praised the brand for its good quality and affordable products. However, I live in Lahore so going to Karachi to buy Claire’s products was almost impossible for me and thanks to my aunt who gifted me this makeup kit. Now head down to read the rest of my review!


Price:
I am not familiar with the price and I can’t find it anywhere on the Internet.

Packaging:
This makeup kit is entirely made of plastic of black color and the lid is transparent. The packaging feels and looks cheap and I wouldn’t recommend it for travelling as the lid does not shut very tightly.

Kit Information:
This makeup kit contains 13 eye shadows, 3 blushes, 3 lip glosses, 1 deluxe size blush brush, 1 deluxe size black kohl pencil, 1 deluxe size eye shadow applicator and a small mirror. Claire’s Cosmetics is a brand from USA and it does not test on animals. All the ingredients and other information are mentioned on the back of the kit. This makeup kit contains carmine.

Pigmentation:
The eye shadows are very poorly pigmented. The shades need a lot of layering up to show on my eye lids and when they become visible, all the colors look almost alike and somewhat give a whitish cast on my lids. However, the blushes are gorgeously pigmented and only a little amount is needed for application. But the lip glosses are poor in pigmentation and only give a tinge of color which is not enough for me.

Texture:
The shades are very powdery and produce excessive fall out which makes the pan messy. The shades feel dry to the touch and lacks creaminess which helps in spreading and blending an eye shadow nicely on the eye lids. However, the blushes feel soft to the touch and look good on cheeks.

Scent:
They have a weird plastic(y) smell which mostly emits from art crayons.

Longevity:
The eye shades last on the lids for 2 to 3 hours approximately and the same goes for the blushes. The lip glosses remain only for 1 hour without eating/drinking.

My Thoughts:
I have certainly not become impressed with this makeup kit. The kohl pencil is nice for everyday wear but it is definitely not the most blackest black and the brush quality is very poor but I’m not disappointed by it as mostly products contains bad quality brushes. I used the eye shadow sponge tip applicator a lot and it got torn so I didn’t include it in the pictures and the lip glosses have been used a lot of times by me when I was in a hurry that is why you can see empty holes in them. The only thing I liked about this kit is the blushes and the small mirror. I detested the eye shadows because they are very low quality and the lip glosses are way too light and sticky and my exact thoughts go for the pencil and brushes as well. I loved the shade range of this palette but was disappointed when the colors didn’t appear as pretty on the lids as it does in the pan and in my swatches. I am dissatisfied by Claire’s Cosmetics makeup kit and I would give it a rating of 1.5/5.

Recommendation:
To no one

Would I Repurchase?
Never

Swatches:   Eyeshadows, Blushes and Lipglosses with the Kohl Pencil.
