The lovely Carly at Tilson PR was sweet enough to send me a number of samples to try and review! So today I want to go over very quickly what I got and some first impressions I have on the products and the company as a whole. Then in the next couple weeks, I'll share with you my full review on each of the products. So! Let's get started!
Starting from the top left and going around clockwise:
Eyeshadow Duo in Passionfruit ($4.50): Wet or dry formula, no creasing, long wear. I used this a couple time this past week after receiving and I must say it has some of the smoothest application I've ever seen! Not only is it smooth, it's also super blendable. The two shades just compliment each other and since it's purple, it helps my brown eyes pop!;) I've only been wearing it dry so far, but I plan to try a wet application too and see how that works:)
Wonderful Lip Plumping Gloss in Deluxe ($5.95): Bee-stung pout, shiny, refreshing tingle. This is actually one of the products I requested specifically from Carly. First off, I am addicted to lip gloss (this is no secret;) Secondly, I have somewhat thin lips so I am always ready to try a plumping gloss! I've used it for a few days as well, and it's actually pretty powerful stuff! It's a very sticky lip gloss (which I know some people don't like) but because of that, it lasts for a longer time than what I was expecting. Even the "refreshing tingle" lasts! But more on this after I use it more.
Vinylwear Extreme Lipgloss in Intense Blossom ($5.95): Maximum shine, color intense, long lasting. I was honestly a little nervous by this one because the color in the tube is so bright I was afraid it was going to look too bright on my face. I used it for the first time yesterday and it actually blended in really well to my natural lip color! It comes out as a lot softer pink than it looks in the tube and gives a definitely shiny look to my lips. I was studying the packaging, and I don't understand why the applicator part is so long and the product part is so short, lol.
My Biggest Lashes Mascara in Brown-Black ($6.50): Full plush brush, intense color, one coat application. This is another one of the products I requested since we all know what a mascara whore I am and that I'm always looking for a new volumizing type mascara. This definitely has a plush brush which makes application super easy. It also doesn't make my eyelashes crunchy or clumpy, so so far I'm a fan. We'll have to see how I feel after using it a little longer.
Liquid Glitter Eyeliner in Starlit Black and Super Nova ($5.50): Shimmering "micro-glitter," fine line precision, effortless stroke. I had requested the Starlit Black and was surprised when I received Super Nova as well as I've never ever in my whole entire life used a green eyeliner! lol. I've used Starlit Black several times and am very pleased with the quality. Liquid eyeliner is not something I use a lot (because I'm not very good at it haha, I often smear it all over my lid or blink before it's dry.. drama-rama haha). Anyway, I tried Super Nova for the first time yesterday and oh! I absolutely adored it! It's a soft, sparkly lighter green that just puts a little pop on my eye! I can't wait to use both of these more!
So overall, I'm very excited with everything I received and can't wait to continue testing them all! I'm very impressed with Prestige Cosmetics as a whole. The prices are so affordable and the quality doesn't feel "cheap" at all. They don't do animal testing! Which I know is a huge selling point to many of you! They also have a line of mineral makeup, which I am excited to try as well.
Supposedly they are sold at Walmart, Walgreens, Ulta, Rite Aid, etc. Sadly, I haven't been able to find their products at my local Walgreens or Walmart, but I am going to keep looking at other stores too! If not, their website is super easy to navigate and easy to order through there. And right now they are offering free shipping on orders of $50 or more!!:)
Has anyone else tried Prestige Cosmetics? What are your thoughts?? Where do you buy them?
