Review: Prestige Cosmetics Valentine's Day Edition

Hello, my Pretties!

Wow! It feels so strange to write a blog post this time around.  It's been so long!  Haha.  But, I received a package, my second to date, from Prestige Cosmetics and I just had to share the goodness with you!

But before I show you the goods, let me wish you all a HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY!  Or, if V-Day isn't your cup of tea and you are opposed to it and it's sappy traditions, well then, CRAPPY STUPID CUPID DAY to you!! Haha.  Me?  I'm not a real fan of V-Day.  Never have been.  I've had the same Valentine for 9 years now and we never ever do the whole fancy date and dinner thing.  Today, I'm walking out the door and I say, "Oh, yeah, happy Valentine's Day," and he responds with, "today's the 14th?"  And then he blows me a kiss.  Yes, that's how we roll.

Anyhow, we only saw each other for about 5 minutes this morning before heading out the doors for our respected jobs so we didn't exchange gifts or anything.  So, I pretended that my Prestige goodies were my gift!  Haha.


Here are my Prestige Cosmetics Valentine's Day inspired picks.
Lip liner, blush, eyeshadow trio, lipstick and sharpener.

I think this sharpener is adorable! It's hot pink and heart shaped!
 You can find this sharpener HERE.


Flawless Touch Blush in Pink Sobet.


Blush comes with it's own brush.

The brush is slightly curved and fits comfortably over my cheekbones
but the bristles are a bit stiff. 

The brush has a notch that latches onto the nub on the blush compact
to hold it into place.  Nifty!

On top the blush is blended out.

My overall thoughts on Pink Sorbet:
I liked it a lot!  I loved the color. This blush blends out very nicely and you are able to build up on the shade intensity.  The texture of the blush itself is somewhat powdery.  If you use the blush brush included, pink powder will fly everywhere.  It's loosely packed.  I loved the concept of the brush latching onto the compact itself so you always have a blush brush on hand but while this blush brush fits nicely over the contours of my cheekbones, the texture of the bristles are a bit stiff.
PRESTIGE COSMETICS FLAWLESS BLUSH in PINK SORBET, $6.95.
You can find Pink Sorbet HERE.

Prestige Cosmetics Skin Loving Minerals
Shimmering Trios Mineral Eyeshadows in Prism.


I thought this was genius!  3 different shadows in one compact
separated in their own compartments!

This is a very pretty sparkly berry shade.

Swatch.  No base, primer, or foundation.  On bare skin.

This one was more matte than shimmery so it was more like a satin
finish in a pinky mauve shade.

Swatch.  No primer, base, or foundation.  On bare skin.

This silver is definitely eye catching.  It is so sparkly and shimmers
beautifully!

Swatch.  No base, primer, or foundation.  On bare skin.



I used all three of the shimmering eyeshadows in this look.  I applied the satin mauve on my lid, the sparkly berry in my crease and the metallic silver in my inner corner and along my lower lash line.

My overall thoughts on Prism:
I am in love once again!  The container is huge coming in at .26 net wt oz.  There is a generous amount of all three shades.  The shades are coordinated nicely.  The lids at the top of each well secures tightly so that the shadows will not spill out and mix.  While the opening to each well is a tad small, my eyeshadow brush still fit.  The shadows wore well, all day for me, without any primer or base.  Their texture is soft and blend-able.  Of the tree shades, the mauve was the harder one to work with but I think it's because it leans more on the matte side.
PRESTIGE COSMETICS SHIMMERING TRIOS MINERAL EYESHADOWS in PRISM, $11.95.
You can find Prism HERE.

Prestige Waterproof Lipliner in True Red.


Swatch.  No base, primer, or foundation.  On bare skin.

My overall thoughts on True Red:
This is a very good lipliner.  It is a really pretty shade of red.  Bright red. TRUE red. It is creamy to apply and doesn't feel too dry on my lips.  I used it to line and fill in my lips the other day and the staying power was amazing!  It lasted for hours.  Even after eating a burger, it was still there.  A little bit faded but that was after hours of wear and lunch.  Yay!
PRESTIGE COSMETICS WATERPROOF LIPLINER in TRUE RED, $3.95.
You can find True Red HERE.


Prestige Color Treat Lipstick.

Romantic Red.

Swatch.

Swatched on my lips.

My overall thoughts on Romantic Red:
Very nice.  First off, I love the packaging.  It's very cute.  It's gray with pink script.  The consistency is very creamy.  Feels like a lip balm.  While the staying power didn't last as long as the True Red lipliner on it's own, if you fill in your lips with True Red and top off with Romantic Red, now that's the way to go!
PRESTIGE COSMETICS COLOR TREAT LIPSTICK in ROMANTIC RED, $5.50.
You can find Romantic Red HERE.

I am honored to have been a part of this Valentine's Day edition review for Prestige Cosmetics.  The products were chosen with a purpose--to give us ladies the perfect look for Valentine's Day!  Of course, these products will look beautiful on anytime of the year.  I look forward to using mine in different looks.  Maybe a nice smokey eye with some red lips??

Any way, thank you to Prestige Cosmetics and Tilson PR for allowing me to be a part of this opportunity!
