Elle 18  was a very average brand when i was in school , but they revamped their range and made their packaging attractive and also changed their marketing strategy (I believe they did, with signing up Anushka Sharma as their Brand Ambassador) . They have a large collection of lipsticks ranging from reds, to muted pinks, to browns, plums and more at a reasonable price tag of Rs 100 to 120. I  have personally used a few shades from this range and I love them. They are affordable, shiny, give medium to full pigmentation in one swipe and wear for a decent amount of time.

Streetwear is marketed by Revlon and this is their affordable range of color cosmetics. I love the revamped look which were belted out in 2014 and I also reviewed three shades from this range Riveting Rouge , Pink Passion and Ruby Riddle . Streetwear lipsticks are really easy to apply. They are creamy and provide good pigmentation and, the best part is that they retail at Rs 180 per shade . The Streetwear Color Rich collection has many shades ranging from bold pinks to hot reds to plums .

If you have grown up in India, then you must have heard about Lakme Enrich Satin Lipsticks or even better, your Mom and your other family members have had at least a few of these in their kitty. Though I feel they  look too Old to fit into a College Girl’s handbag (Packaging Wise) I just heard that Lakme has relaunched them in sleek , new packaging. They have also launched new shades and are now being priced at Rs 260 . I never liked the strong chemical smell of these lipsticks but if you don’t have a sensitive nose try them. Believe me , they have a humungous range of colors and at this price they are worth a try. Look out for the new range which features some bright new shades for college going girls.

Maybelline’s Color Sensational Moisture Extreme Lipstick range is my favorite Budget lipstick range and I have used many shades from this particular range. These retail at Rs 275 per shade and are really buttery and smooth . They have a tendency to melt in hot weather but they are super hydrating and pigmented. Most shades in this range have color coded packaging and are medium to fully pigmented. I loved shades like Cranberry, Coral pink, Bronze Orange etc which have been my makeup box staples. Just last week I repurchased the shade Bronze Orange (My Favorite Coral Orange) , the last time I got it for free on purchase of two Color Sensational Lipsticks .

if you want to know the matte shades I wear more often than others, I’ll surely name these babies. This lipstick range is like my HG matte lipsticks and I have many of them. The lipsticks from these range usually have a creamy to matte texture and very good color payoff. I don’t need to prep my lips for the shades and they usually don’t leave my lips dry. They come in attractive packaging and color coded bottoms. I love the finish as well as the faint vanilla fragrance of these lipsticks. I love the shades Cream Cup (My MLBB) , Peach Crush (my first Peachy Shade) , Hot Hot Hot and Pink Passion . These used to retail at Rs 250 but now they are sold at Rs 299 per shade.
