Cheap Thrill: Careline Vitamin E Lip Gloss and More Giveaways

When this blog went on hiatus, I had somewhat "quit the internet" as well. I was on lurker mode on the few places I still went to.

But but BUT! I am so glad I went back to GT just in time to read the raves for the Careline Vitamin E Lip Glosses. Otherwise, I would never have given these babies a second look.
L-R: Shade #'s 101, 102, 103, 104, 107, 109, 110
with flash

This comes in 12 shades. I started out with 2, and then each time I pass by a Robinson's Department Store, I couldn't help but get more until I ended up with the collection above. And the two more below.

L-R: 108, 111
with flash


Likes:
- cheap at PHP 60-
- Yummy smell
- can be worn a number of ways: piled on , or thinly as a stain, or over lipstick for extra oomph.

Dislikes:
- flimsy and ordinary-looking packaging
- not widely available (sold exclusively at Robinson's Department Stores)
- staying power when piled on is so-so, but better when used as a stain
- chunky glitters that go (and stay) everywhere on some shades


ETC.

-Some of my personal faves:

104: bright bubblegum pink- one of my faves. it really brightens up the face.
107: mauvey nude with silver glitters (could be a favorite if not for the glitters. Worn on this FOTD
108: deeper blood red- very vampy
111: bright orange red- a hot color these days

Got an unwearable shade? Mix it with another gloss and create a brand new wearable shade!
