Stageline Professional Make Up Review

Saturday, October 11, 2014 Sidrah!!!! 6 Comments

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 Just4girls.pk as well as Daraz.pk 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.
