Careline Lipgloss tubes and palettes from Props

If there's anything that I love the most, it's getting good deals out of my hard earned money. I have always believed that there are quality products that wont create dents on your budget, and makeup is no exception to this statement. So whenever I see something that's worth buying and affordable at the same time, I do not think twice. Call me impulsive, but I guess that's me. :)

Props Tools and Cosmetics. Sometime in September or October of this year, Ensogo sold discounted vouchers for Props Tools and Cosmetics. Props is a brand that's new to me, so when I saw this offer on Ensogo, I bought some vouchers and placed an order for 2 of their palettes. I got The Carnival and The Disco Matte palettes.

Let's start with The Carnival palette. Encased in a matte plastic finish, this is very similar, if not the same, with Dollface's Avant Garde palette. Great for everyday and party looks.

Picture with flash. It looks shimmery, but they are highly pigmented, believe me. I was also surprised!

Picture without flash. This palette comes with 88 eye shadows and each pan is about the size of a ten centavo coin. See the vibrant yellows, reds, oranges, blues and neutrals? I'd call this a year-round, all around palette. :)

Swatches. Yes, they're very pigmented baby!

This is the Disco Palette, matte version. Same matte case, but without the Props logo. I wonder what happened to it? Hmmm.

It comes with 32 eye shadows and 10 cheek colors (mix of blushes and bronzers). This palette is not 100% matte, though. I have spotted a few semi shimmery colors in this palette.

Swatches. Not as pigmented as The Carnival palette, but this can be easily fixed with a good primer.

The blush pans is like the size of a 5 peso coin. They matte ones are pigmented, so a light hand is necessary in applying them, and the shimmery ones are nice when applied over the matte ones.

The pink one is gorgeous.

Careline Lipgloss with Vitamin E. I have read reviews about these babies, about them being good substitutes for lipsticks, and since they're only Php 60 per tube, I decided to get some of them. I have tested the shimmery colors and found them to be too shimmery and gritty, so I settled for the matte shades.

From L-R: 107, 101, 111, 102, 110

Swatches: From L-R: 107, 101, 111, 102, 110 (Look how pigmented they are.. these are lipsticks in test tubes!)

Shade 107 for me is a nude,raisin colored lip gloss, while Shade 101 leans towards the nude-beige-y side. Shade 110 comes in a bold red orange-y tint, while Shade 102 is a fun baby pink color. Shade 110 is a brown colored lip gloss that would go great with a smokey eye look, IMO.

Do you like great bargains? Post your thoughts here! ^_^

Love lots,

The Props Carnival palette looks so nice! :) I agree though that it's similar to DollFace's palettes. Maybe they get it from the same manufacturer? Btw, love the Careline lip glosses. They look so pigmented for a lip gloss! Will try to get a hold of the shade 101 soon :)

I love Props. I have their Ultimate Palette Too and have used it for different makeup looks including an 80's one which needs lots and very pigmented colors. It did the job. The carnival palette looks awesome! I'm proud of the brand and proud to be their blogger affiliate. :)
