This was my very first local "true" liquid lipstick (Pink Sugar's Sugartint not included) and it definitely was not my last! I got it at their introductory price of 195 and in three shades: Gotta Go, Normcore and In Bloom. Off the bat, all I can say is that they are the perfect Colourpop dupes! From their packaging to their formula, Careline delivers gorgeous pigment packaged in sleek silver capped transparent tubes with fool-proof doe foot applicators. The formula goes on nice and opaque, with occasional streaks depending of what shade you get. Gotta Go, a nice burnt peachy shade perfect for all skin tones, is my favorite. It's a really natural looking nude that gives me what I call "French Girl" vibes. Normcore is significantly darker compared to Gotta Go and applies as a subtle griege. It's definitely a dupe for Colourpop's Beeper. In Bloom is a gorgeous retro red that leans towards the warmer side. It actually reminds me of Pennywise the Clown's red makeup LOL! This one is the most pigmented of the 3 shades. Longevitywise, these are relatively long-lasting as long as you stay away from the oilies. As with Colourpop, the product isn't exactly moisturizing so better to hydrate and exfoliate first. In terms of scent, it hardly has any in my opinion. All in all, it's an awesome local product that surely deserves global acclaim.
