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

- 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.

- 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


-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!

    the packaging looks really cute. they look like test tubes. reminds me of physician's formula's packaging XD

    much love,

  2. i'm not crazy about the test tube design but hey you're right! it does look a bit like PF's =))

  3. Wow! That's a lot you got there!... I've seen these before, but I'm not really a lip gloss person. Hehe. But they are super affordable, I might just try and get one! :)

    Btw, thanks for joining my giveaway! :)

  4. i used to be all about lipglosses but became a lipstick convert. i guess I just couldn't resist the low price and raves and got carried away. =))
