[REVIEW] Stageline Professional X-FIX Lips

Friday, March 04, 2016 Unknown 4 Comments

The liquid lipstick craze has taken over the makeup world, every brand nowadays whether its high-end or drugstore are releasing their own version of the liquid to matte formula. Stageline Professional is no exception, these recently launched in the market with a total of 6 shades. These are available at if you are interested in purchasing them online. 
Introducing new longer stay lipstick range with matt finish, "X-Fix Lips" which fixates on your lips for upto 12+ hours without letting its actual color fade away.

  • Shade 03 - Cherry - Medium Pink
  • Shade 05 - Chesnut - True Brown

I had to swatch these on my lips with a lip balm (my lips look like the Sahara Desert otherwise), my lips generally have a lot of fine lines that becomes more prominent with liquid matte lipsticks. You can notice on my hand swatch that the thin formula sinks into every little texture on the skin so that doesn't translate well on my lips. The way I wear these comfortably is by layering it on top of a creamy lipstick just so there is a barrier between my lips and the liquid formula. 

03 Cherry is a beautiful medium pink, it swatches really bold on my hand but when mixed with a lip balm it does look a little lighter. It's a classic pink that everyone should have. 
05 Chesnut is a true brown with a peachy tone, this is LOVE. I hate nudes that wash out my complexion so this is ideal for ladies with medium to deep skintones. Its that perfect brown without any rose tone. 
These remind me so much of the ColourPop Ultra Matte Liquid Lipstick formula, it's thin watery consistency dries very quickly. The formula is VERY opaque, I just needed one swipe to achieve full on color, it applies evenly and really beautifully. The flat wand allows you to define your lip line easily. The formula does dry down and sinks into fine lines on the lips, with the flat matte texture I did need to wear it with a lip balm just to make my lips look nice.

These have a fantastic wear time. Even when applied over lipstick it doesn't budge or flake off. I do recommend exfoliating your lips and using a lip balm if you have textured lips like mine. I've worn these out to dinner and it barely broke down with eating and drinking. Both shades do slightly stain the lips. 

Overall I absolutely love these to wear on top of lipsticks to make it last all day. I will definitely be picking up another shade from the range. 

Price: Rs. 995

Jordana Cosmetics Haul + Swatches

Wednesday, March 02, 2016 Unknown 1 Comments

When a really affordable brand launches in Pakistan, you have to try out most of the top rated products. The first product that I ever tried from Jordana was the Best Lash Extreme Mascara (the cult favorite) and I absolutely love it! When I placed this order the mascara was out of stock but I definitely need to get my hands on it again. I ended up hauling a few of their 12hr Made To Last Eyeshadow Pencils and a Blush in Blushing Rose.
12hr Made To Last Eyeshadow Pencils
I've tried the eyeliner version of this long-lasting formula and I loved it! Very smooth and creamy and dries to a budge-proof formula! The Eyeshadow Pencils come in 8 shades and are very similar to the Milani ones but so much cheaper! Milani and Jordana are made from the same factory in the states so the formula is almost the same. These make a great base for shadows as well as liner for the inner waterline.

  • Endless Emerald is a forest green with a shimmer finish.
  • Prolong Purple is a royal purple with a shimmer finish.
  • Stay-On Black is a pitch black with a matte finish.

Price: 442rs
Endless Emerald, Stay-On Black, Prolong Purple Swatch.
Powder Blush
I've been wanting a plummy rose toned blush for ages, Blushing Rose is now one of my most reached for blushes. Its smooth and very pigmented but is easily blended onto the cheeks. Since I have oily skin most blushes don't last that long on me without a setting spray, this one stays put for a good 6 hours!

Price: 561rs.
