I told you I was hunting for a lipstick exactly like Maybelline Touch Of Toffee Color Sensational Lipgloss in my Most Used Beauty Products post. Then reader Aparna (Hello! Thank You!) told me to try Maybelline Totally Toffee Color Sensational Lipstick. I had seen swatches of it before, but somehow I thought it wasn't launched in India (like Born With It). I decided to pick it up 2 weeks back, with Colorbar Passionate Crème Touch Lipstick (and another lipstick, which has another story with an unhappy ending), and......
.....Oh My Bows! Look-at-that! How have I lived without it?! I mean, it's so my type of nude lippie! I think it's a more pigmented sister of Touch Of Toffee. It's perfect for my lips, coz the undertone is neither too pink nor too peach & neither too warm nor too cool. It's a neutral nude lippie. If, God forbid, my favorite nude lippie MAC Patisserie were ever discontinued, Totally Toffee could easily replace it. Not that they're the same, Patisserie is much lighter and glossier.
I prefer it to My Mahogany, simply because I think it suits my skin tone better.

That's how it looks on me. It's the same look as the one with L'Oreal Infallible Eyeshadows. Please ignore the shine, it was so hot!
I feel I've seen a similar lipstick in MAC, which I was attracted to & almost bought once. Umm....Modesty? Let me check on that.
If you love Color Sensational Lipsticks & almost-mlbb shades, Totally Toffee is one lipstick to own. Wearable. Nicely packaged. Affordable. Totally loving it!
Price ~ Rs.299 ($5.35)
My Rating ~ ♥♥♥♥♥ 4.8/5
What do you think? Totally Toffee or No Toffee for you?
P.S. By the time you read this, I'll be on the way to Shimla (known as 'Queen Of The Hills' in India). By car, starting at 5 am, 8 hour journey.... and I couldn't sleep a wink last night! ('If-I- fall-asleep-now-I'll-get-only-1-hour-sleep-so-no-point' situation.) What an ironic start to a relaxing/refreshing weekend getaway with the fam, haha! Hey, if you know of any good shops that you think I'd like (jewelry, chic clothes, etc), please do tell! =D My first time there. I will post pics if hotel wi-fi isn't slow.
Hope you're all participating in my 3rd Blog Anniversary Giveaway!
