Achieve your best brows ever with Careline Fiber Brow

Careline Fiber Brow

We all know that kilay is life! But we also know that it usually takes a lot of time and effort to achieve gorgeous, fuller-looking eyebrows, not to mention the money we usually spend on multiple products to get that enviable eyebrow look.

Not to worry! To help you pull off fuller eyebrows, Careline Cosmetics offers a quick and easy guide to get that amazing brow look.

Choose the product that works for you.   Sometimes, all it takes is one great product to achieve gorgeous eyebrows. Luckily, Careline Cosmetics offers Fiber Brow, a brow mascara infused with microfibers that are designed to fill in the sparse parts of the eyebrows to make them look fuller and natural. Aside from the infusion of microfibers, Fiber Brow is specially formulated with a buildable pigment and long-wearing formula. It’s also enriched with hyaluronic acid to boost the growth of your eyebrow hairs, and glycerin to keep them healthy and hydrated.

With eyebrow products, it’s also important to choose the right color. Fiber Brow comes in two colors: soft brown and ash brown. Ash brown is best for black, gray, and dark-colored hair while soft brown is recommended for brown, blonde, and light-colored hair. Makeup experts also recommend mixing colors if you need to get a closer match to your eyebrow hair, and for the affordable price of P195, you can get both shades if you need to. All in the name of beauty!

Be sure to follow the correct technique. Just as important as the eyebrow product is your makeup technique, especially if you want your brows to look natural. Apply the Fiber Brow following the direction of your hair. If you want more coverage and volume, swipe it against your hair’s opposite direction first, then in the natural direction. Either way, it’s best to use small, hair-like flicking motions to apply eyebrow products. Avoid single and long strokes when applying brow makeup.

Blend well. For a perfect finish, don’t forget to blend well. Brush your eyebrows with a spoolie, or spread the mascara with an angled brush. For added convenience, Fiber Brow’s applicator is a spoolie brush that can help blend the product.

Whether you’re a brow makeup expert or a beginner, Careline Fiber Brow can elevate your look while simplifying your brow beauty regimen, making it quick, easy, and affordable.

Careline Fiber Brow is available at Watsons, The SM Store - Beauty Section, Robinsons Department Store - Beauty Section, Puregold, and other retail stores nationwide. It’s also available online at Shopee ( and Lazada  (

How to Make the Most of Galaxy Z Flip4 at Every Angle

Personal needs, styles and preferences constantly evolve in today’s modern world. As such, customers deserve devices that can go with the flow: smart mobile experiences that are as diverse and adaptable as the users themselves. The newly launched Galaxy Z Flip4 is exactly that kind of device, fine-tuned to express its user’s style through its design, features and even angles. Equipped with an iconic form factor that can be positioned at different degrees to unlock a trove of innovative features, this is a smartphone designed to deliver the most personalized experience.

Samsung Newsroom has put together this guide for users, breaking down every angle to showcase how Galaxy Z Flip4’s unique form factor provides tailored user experiences, inside and out.

0 degree: Unlock the Full Potential of the Cover Screen

Galaxy Z Flip4 offers a full smartphone experience that folds into half the size for compact pocketability. Even when folded, it fits smoothly in users’ pockets. What’s more, plenty of its diverse features are even optimized to be used without flipping it open. For instance, with Quick Setting, you can turn on and off airplane mode or flashlight and easily adjust the screen’s brightness. Easily reply to messages, make a call or access your Samsung Wallet — all from Z Flip4’s 1.9-inch Cover Screen. You can even easily pick the widgets you want to use right on the Cover Screen, making the Z Flip series even more convenient and accessible.

By simply pressing the side button twice, you can activate Quick Shot. This feature allows users to take high-resolution selfies by using the main cameras of Z Flip4 right from the Cover Screen. With the enhanced Quick Shot that now supports a preview on the Cover Screen reflecting the actual photo ratio as well as Portrait Mode, you can snap top-quality photos whenever and wherever you are. You can even use the closed Z Flip4 as a mirror to quickly check your look before heading out.

75 degrees: Craft Your Own Photoshoot Experience With FlexCam

Capture photos and videos from different points of view with bolder angles than ever before with Z Flip4. With FlexCam, you can use your Galaxy Z Flip4 cameras at different folded angles, opening up a broad range of new perspectives never before possible on conventional smartphones — giving you more control than ever over your selfies.

The high-resolution main cameras and the Cover Screen photo previews do more than enable great selfies. These features can work together with Z Flip4’s wide spectrum of angles to provide dynamic, full-body shots, transforming your smartphone into an adjustable tripod that fits right in your pocket. Take total control of your image and get stylish, flattering angles without needing to carry around accessories or ask others to take photos for you. You can even angle Z Flip4 at 75 degrees and place it on the ground for bold, stylistic shots that wouldn’t be out of place on the cover of a fashion magazine.

Out with friends and want to take a group photo? With Z Flip4, nobody needs to be left out. Just place your device at the angle you want on a nearby surface and strike your poses. FlexCam lets you trigger the camera by holding up your palm, all without needing to press a button on the camera itself. The shutter sound lets you know your photo has been successfully taken. Take camera timers and random pleas to strangers out of the equation for natural group photos without the hassle.

90 degrees: Camera Features That Power Content Creation and Versatile Photography

Today, more users than ever are creating and enjoying short-form video content, like Instagram Reels and YouTube Shorts, and Galaxy Z Flip4 is the perfect companion for it. Designed with the preferences of Millennials and Generation Z in mind, Z Flip4 allows you to conveniently create online content. For example, you can take a vlog using the high-quality video recording in Quick Shot mode and then seamlessly switch to Flex mode to continue recording hands-free — all without ever stopping the video.

For handheld shots, Galaxy Z Flip4 can be held like a camcorder. Soon, users can also try out bird’s eye view photos by holding up the smartphone while folded at 90 degrees.

Z Flip4 is also perfect for capturing nighttime scenes when out for an atmospheric evening walk. Z Flip4 is equipped with a 65% brighter image sensor than its previous generation, enabling high-quality nighttime photos, even when the sky is pitch-black. The Nightography mode is optimized for using the camera in these conditions and minimizes the washed-out, blurry effect that is used to make nighttime photography harder to achieve. Now you can get bright, sharp photos with less image noise.

115 degrees: Divide Up Your Screen Space to Suit Your Multitasking Needs

With its fourth generation, the Z Flip series has taken its Flex mode to the next level with further enhanced features. Z Flip4 adds a touchpad within Flex mode that lets you control the mouse cursor for pausing, rewinding or playing videos without picking up the device.

Multitasking is also more intuitive and easier to activate, thanks to new swipe gestures. Simply swipe up on the screen with two fingers to split your screen in half or swipe to the middle from top two corners to instantly switch full-screen apps to pop-up windows. With multi-window, you can watch a film on the top screen while taking notes on the bottom screen, all while chatting with friends on a message thread and planning your route to meet them simultaneously.

180 degrees: The Ultimate Self-Expression Tool With an Array of Colors and Combinations

Our smartphones can play a big role in expressing our individuality, and Galaxy Z Flip4 is no exception — you can complement your style with premium design in legacy colors, including Bora Purple, Graphite, Pink Gold and Blue. With the slimmer hinge, refined edges, contrasting haze back glass and glossy metal frames, the new design is our most refined yet.

The Cover Screen is the focal point of Z Flip4’s surface: it is the part of the phone that gets the most exposure and acts as a window into its user’s personality. For instance, comprehensive display customization options include the ability to change the backgrounds in various formats such as images, GIFs and now even video on the Cover Screen. You can take advantage of Z Flip4’s various creative camera features to craft the perfect Cover Screen background, then add the clock style of your choice from the expanded list of clock designs to complete the picture.

From the moment you open up Galaxy Z Flip4, a new experience in mobile technology unfolds right in front of you. From 0 to 180 degrees, it’s a panoramic device designed to fit perfectly with your unique lifestyle.
