Gem Stone Jewlery Pieces from OMG Jewelz

If you're looking for quality jewelry pieces without breaking the bank, I've found just the place! As an online shopping junkie, it's hard to figure out which stores really are worth spending money over. 

OMG Jewelz is a relatively new online shop dedicated to trendy jewelry pieces that came under my radar recently. I was a bit hesitant to review jewlery since as many of you know I frequently shop from AliExpress for inexpensive jewelry, but once I got these in the mail I don't think I will ever buy cheap jewlery again! Let's take a closer look these pieces.

I'm not huge with necklaces but I must say, this piece is stunning! I wish there was a way to SHOW how heavy this chain is. It's not flimsy at all, I can really compare this to branded pieces since the finishing is smooth and very shiny. Since the chain is quite heavy in weight, the hooks are just as sturdy. The pendant paired with the multicolored gems and stones really makes a trendy piece. This definitely calls for a minimal outfit when wearing this out!

Price: Rs. 1,050.00

I'm in love with this bracelet, just like the necklace this piece has a stunning high quality finish and weight to it. I really like the color combo in this piece since turquoise, green and blue just looks classy. The hook on this bracelet is sturdy and isn't bendable at all. Even the gems are secured so there isn't a chance of them falling out. There is a matching Gem necklace that goes with the bracelet which is just as classy.

Price Rs. 750.00
After trying out these 2 pieces I'm definitely going to be placing an order with them soon! The site is very easy to browse around and there are multiple photos of each item. If you're planning on ordering, rest assure that all of the pieces will be packaged securely in bubble wrap. 

If you're going to purchase something from OMG Jewelz, you can save 5% off your order using the code "sidran" upon checkout to save a little money. The site does provide free cash on delivery across Pakistan and they ship worldwide at a flat rate shipping charge of $5.

Mid-Year 2015 Makeup Favorites

My favorites never really change year around, unless I haul a bunch of products that make it into my favorites. But these products are pure gems in my collection! 

Mid-Year Makeup Favorites

Face Products: 

I can not leave the house without wearing a little bit of concealer, the Maybelline Age Rewind in Medium matches my skintone perfectly. I love how this covers without looking cakey or unatural. If you're nc25-30 this will match your skin, I would go with Light next time for a brightening effect. I always use the Color Studio Concealer Brush paired with this concealer, it gives an airbrushed effect!

Since my skin is oil-combination, the Elf Mineral Primer and CoverGirl Outlast 3-in-1 Foundation is my go to! I love wearing this on a day when I will be out all day, for an evening occasion I will add a few drops of Revlon ColorStay for more coverage.

For cheeks, these 2 shimmery products are amazing! Sleek Blush in Rose Gold and Makeup Revolution Highlighter in Golden Lights both have very fine shimmer and really makes the cheeks glow!

Eye Products
During Black Friday back in december, I picked up the Coastal Scents Fall Festival palete and I never looked back. These shadows are soooo smooth, pigmented and buttery, I love using these for a neutral makeup look. I like the pops of rose and olives in this palette too. I can't wear any eyeshadow without the Luscious Angel Eyes Eye Primer, it cancels out any darkness and works really well to get ride of darkness on your eyes. It makes my shadows last all day!

For brow, the ELF Brow Kit in Medium is perfect for everyday to fill in sparse areas, I do have to set this with a powder since the gel is quite creamy. I've been a lash junkie these days, both of these are amazing on my lashes! The Essence I heart Extreme and Jordana Best Lash Extreme give a lot of volume and length while holding a curl so perfectly! For liner, the Essence Long Lasting Eye Pencil is the perfect black for all day wear. 

Lip Products
I love a good nude, natural lipstick for everyday wear. All of these are perfect shades for medium complexions, these don't wash out your lip color but add the perfect natural lip color. Kat Von D Studded Kiss in Lovecraft is a very warm mauve shade in a matte finish. I got this in the holiday mini lipstick set and this one has been my most reached for! Jordana Matte Lipstick in Terracotta is a coraly nude shade with a matte finish. This doesn't dry out the lips but wear well for quite some hours. Too Faced Melted Nude is very similar to Terracotta but gives a nice satin finish to the lips. Melted Fuschia is my go-to for evening occasions, its a bright bold cool tone pink!

What are some of your favorites that you've been obsessed with lately?!

Bow Tie is my fav out of the shoe collection, the strapy neon yellow flat just screams summer. Made out of comfy leatherite material to keep your feet looking adorable all summer long. 

Coils is the perfect summer flat. The light mint strapy flat is perfect for a day out at a the beach or going out with friends! The style is comfortable and perfect to go with a casual summer outfit.

OPI Gwen Stefani Mini Rock Starlets

It's NO DOUBT how much Gwen has influenced me growing up. She was the epitome of cool-chic punker with class not to mention her solo work is amazing!! With the OPI collaboration I knew her collection would be filled with bold and bright shades just like her style. I'm so thrilled that they came out with a mini set to try out some of the shades. Her collection really reflects her style.

Gwen Stefani for OPI Mini Swatch
OPI joins celebrity partner Gwen Stefani in announcing seven new limited edition nail lacquers for 2014, featuring standout color in breakthrough finishes. Highlights from the collection include a bold red lacquer that pays homage to Gwens signature lipstick, a new semi-matte satin finish in shades of gold and black, and a mirrored chrome paired with a special base coat. Gwen Stefani by OPI nail lacquers contain no DBP, Toluene, or Formaldehyde, and feature OPIs exclusive ProWide Brush for the ultimate in application.
The mini set is called Rock Starlet with are 4 mini polishes - "Hey Baby", "I Sing In Color", "Love.Angel.Music.Baby" and "4 In The Morning".

Hey Baby- Gwen Stefani for OPI Mini Swatch
Hey Baby

A stunning bright cream finish medium pink. It's not too bright or too deep, just a classic medium pink. I really loved the finish of this polish, it goes on super smooth. 

I Sing In Color- Gwen Stefani for OPI Mini Swatch
I Sing In Color

I wasn't expecting a deep berry shade from Gwen since her style is more into bold reds. This is the only shade that was tricky to apply, it went on a bit sheer so it had to be layered a few times. With more coats it starts to look like a vampy burgundy. 
Love.Angel.Music.Baby- Gwen Stefani for OPI Mini Swatch
Love. Angel. Music. Baby.

My favorite from the batch! It's the most unique shade of shimmery gold considering the finish is matte. It's an unconventional finish since shimmery polishes look better with a glossy finish. The shade is soft and applies beautifully with a single coat. 

4 in the Morning- Gwen Stefani for OPI Mini Swatch
4 In The Morning

You can't have a Gwen collection without a dark shade. This one has a deepened charcoal hue, not a straight black. I love the matte finish on this, it's so classy and applies easily with 2 coats.

Stageline Professional Make Up Review

Stageline Professional Cosmetics is a brand that popped out of nowhere for me. I hadn't really heard of the brand before and by the looks of it, they are a brand catering towards makeup artists and high definition makeup. Who doesn't love that? I wanted to give an overview about some of the products that the brand has to offer, they are currently available on as well as and I've seen them in selected stores in Karachi.
Stageline Professional Make Up Review
STAGE LINE PROFESSIONAL MAKE-UP is an extensive range of professional make-up with added skincare benefits. It is complemented by a range of professional skincare products - STAGE LINE PROFESSIONAL CARE - which offers high quality at a good price, and meets all of the needs of make-up professionals, beauticians and hairdressers, while also being very easy for end consumers to use.

STAGE LINE products (foundations, eye make-up, lip make-up, etc.) are made from micronised pigments and active ingredients that benefit the skin. They are mainly characterised by their long-lasting wear that can withstand even the most difficult conditions (heat, sweat, rubbing, etc.).

Stageline Paint Stick in OR Orange
Every professional brand comes out with a foundation stick, these offer more coverage compared to liquid and powder foundations. I wanted to try out the Orange shade since I never got around to trying the Kryolan Orange corrector for my undereyes. The Stageline Paint Stick in Orange is more a peachy tone shade instead of a true orange, which I prefer moreso since the true orange can be hard to blend with your foundation. 
The texture is very creamy and easily blends into the skin, it has a medium but buildable coverage.
Stageline Paint Stick in OR Orange Swatch
It can crease under the eyes if you apply too much so you have to apply it sparingly using your index finger and only concentrate on the discolored area. It blends with other concealers easily to give that brighten under-eye appearance. It works really well to cancel any darkness on the undereye as well as any dark patches around the face.

Stageline High Definition Cover Shade 02

The brand offers a wide range of foundations, the High definition Cover foundation is a cream to powder type formula. I wasn't expecting much from the foundation but the texture of this is so smooth and creamy. It blends into the skin so flawlessly and even covers up any unevenness on the skin because of the added silicone in the foundation. 

Stageline High Definition Cover Shade 02 Swatch
It is an oil based foundation with SPF 15,Vitamin E and barley extract. It doesn't feel heavy on the skin despite the ingredients. I really wish I picked out my perfect shade since shade 02 is a deep tan shade. The swatches and product photos can be a bit misleading online, so I recommend testing out foundations in store for Stageline. 

I did wear this around the house just to see how much coverage I could achieve and this is by far the most high coverage foundation I've ever used. It covered up dark patches on my checks really well without adding additional layers of product. It doesn't look cakey on the skin, but more of a natural smooth appearance. This is one product I'll be repurchasing with my right shade.

Stageline Make-Up Fixer
Makeup setting sprays are a pretty new concept to me, I've never tried any out before so I wasn't sure what to expect as far as long-wearing makeup. The Stageline setting spray is said to finish and seal makeup for prolong hold. It comes in a spray bottle and mists very finely.

I use about 2-3 sprits after I've completed my makeup and it dries into the skin easily. It does take away any powder or cakey appearance that my heavier foundations can leave behind (I'm looking at you Revlon Colorstay). I did notice that my blush and bronzer didn't fade as it normally does after wearing it for 3+ hours. This definitely kept my powder cheek products in place.

Stageline Velvet Blush Shade CC
Blushes are the perfect way to perk up any complexion. The Velvet blush in shade CC is a light matte peachy pink blush, it doesn't show up too well on my medium skin tone even after applying a few layers of product. It has a very stiff and dry texture so it's difficult to pick up on a powder brush, I even tried to scrap off the top layer but it didn't help to make the product workable. 

This blush was such a letdown considering how pretty the color is, maybe for fairer complexions this will work better but with a high price point I was expecting this to be very pigmented on just one swipe.

Stageline Silk Veil Pore Minimizer 
If you're like me and have an oily t-zone, a primer is a must! I do have quite a bit of enlarged pores and a primer tends to fill them in to an extent. The Silk Veil is a silicone based primer so it helps to smooth out the skin before applying foundation. This does contain Hyaluronic acid which has been known to soften the skin and keep it hydrated. 

For my t-zone, I only use the smallest amount just a half of a pea sized and I blend the remaining out onto the rest of my face. This really helps to apply foundation easily and smoothly, it doesn't completely mattify my t-zone but it does minimize any oil that comes throughout the day. After wearing this I don't need to touch up my makeup after about 4 hours. I have definitely noticed that my skin becomes less oily throughout the day. It doesn't fill in my pores 100% but it does minimize it a bit.
