The falling Rupee has ruined my life. No, Im not exaggerating..ever since the Rupee hit a new low at 51 to a dollar , all sort of complications are coming up in my life. For example, any talk about the honeymoon with the boy, and he says ‘Lets just talk about it when the Rupee returns to sane levels ok’. Ugh!  I look through online shopping websites, and the dollar rates are just staring at my face, screaming 51 ! 51 ! 51 !  So yes, no honeymoon talks, no international makeup brands..for now i have to stick to my humble Maybelline lipsticks like Maybelline Color Sensational in Autumn Rush to keep me satisfied.

Maybelline Autumn Rush Lipstick

Okay, i know what you are thinking. Usually, brown lipstick totally equates to Indian Aunty-ness but Maybelline Autumn Rush doesn’t. If i had to wear brown, i would pick a subtle, lighter brown like Maybelline Autumn Rush- it looks polished , understated and young! For a lot of darker girls with pigmented lips, i can imagine this being one of the most perfect everyday lipsticks : my lips, but a lot better! I am not surprised why its got such a fan following in India- im sure it sets off all our warm, dusky  complexions to perfection. Plus with brown lipsticks, i feel i become more sensible- no jokes, it just has that sophisticated grown up quality to it that makes me take sensible decisions.I just need to make sure im not posed with a life changing decision while wearing hot pink lipstick ! Who knows what effect that would have?!

General Thoughts on Colorsensational Lipsticks
In my opinion, the Maybelline Color Sensational Range provide great value for your buck. They are super pigmented,non drying and comfortable to wear. They smell of sweet cocount , come in a range of flattering colors and generally get about 4 hours of wear.They are not as creamy and soft as some of the high end ranged brands (think MAC Amplified Creams), and they do have just a slightly waxy texture but for the money you spend on them, its hard to find a better lipstick.
