Prestige Cosmetics recently released a new line of products called Total Intensity, a huge collection of super pigmented products perfect for more dramatic looks. They offered to send me a selection to try out, and I jumped at the chance! I've seen this line in my local ULTA and while I've been curious about them, I haven't purchased anything yet.
After using some of the Total Intensity products, I'm definitely going to be making a point of using more Prestige! These products were all very pigmented, applied easily, blended exactly how I wanted them to blend and even stuck around all day without any creasing or fading. The eye makeup remover made everything just melt right off (amazing, I had been expecting a lot of scrubbing at the end of the day), and the lip crayon lasts a good 3-4 hours with minimal fading. I have my eye on their eye liners and shadow trios to try out next!
These shadows are swatched without any primer, somewhat on accident but then when I saw how intense the colors were and how easy they were to swatch I didn't bother to start over with a primer underneath. The shadows come in two groups, the Color Rush and True Metals (I have 2 of each here). I think the color payoff with these shadows is pretty amazing! I think that Pewter is the easiest to incorporate into an every day look, but I want to try and work Makeup UR Mind into a smoky eye sometime soon.
The colors of the Eyeshadow Crayons remind me quite of bit of NARS Eye Paints, though in a slightly easier to use format. Just draw on the pencil, then you can blend with a brush or a fingertip (I recommend a brush if you want any precision). You have roughly 30-60 seconds to blend, so you need to do it fast! After that the crayon sets and I swear, this stuff won't move. You'll want a good eye makeup remover to take it off later (just grab the Prestige one when you buy the crayons).
Finally, the Lip Crayon. I was pretty happy with this, though I was a bit surprised just how much shimmer there was in it. It isn't subtle shimmer, it's definitely present. The color is super pigmented, so you really just need to fill in your lips once and the lippie stays put without feathering or fading for hours. I want to try out the bright pink for summer, it's called Party Shine.
