Careline Liquid Matte Lipsticks Review and Swatches

Happy 2018! Kicking of the new year with another review feels just right to get the blog mojo going. As mentioned in my previous Careline/EB lippie post (here) this particular Careline release is heaps better.

"Better than Basic"

For Php 210 (Some places have them at Php 195), this is a truer 'liquid matte' lipstick that's comfortably lightweight and surprisingly pigmented (not to put the local brand down but it is SUPER good for a Philippine Makeup Brand).

Packaging is A+. Tubes are reminiscent of Colourpop's actually.

The new branding is a much needed facelift for the crowd today. Still targeted towards the youngesters the new look is bolder opting for a more 'Girl Crush' vibe than the 'Tweetums' cutesey one it had before.

The consistency is watery (similar to Colourpop Satin Lips I reviewed here) BUT delivers 100% on pigment —at just one swipe.

Plus it's not scented!

All the matte colours, leaning mostly to 'nude', are all very on trend. There are other 'non-nude' colours like Pop (Bright Fuschia), In Bloom (Bright Cherry Red), Dark Matter (Vampy Eggplant) and Wallflower (Blueish Gray).They also have matte metallic lippies for your more adventurous looks.

I bought Pop, Normcore (Grayish Mauve) and Gotta Go (Warm Peachy Nude) at Watsons for Php 195/each.

If you still haven't tried any good locally available liquid matte lipsticks here is a solid brand to start off with,  good enough to collect even!

Have you tried this yet? What do you think about the Philippine Makeup game lately? I personally think they're killing it. Let me know your thoughts below!
