Prestige Total Intensity eyeliners are my absolute favorite eyeliners. I’ve owned Deepest Black and Fierce Blue for a while, and recently bought Intense Olive. Right now, Rite Aide has a good sale on Prestige products, so I decided to pick up the final three of the collection – Bold Brown, Daring Green, and Powerful Purple for about $4 each – a total steal.
Edited: Thanks to a commenter, I realized there were two more shades – Strong Slate and Fearless Teal I didn’t know about. Rite Aide doesn’t carry them, but some other stores do. I bought them and added swatches below! Per the Prestige website, this is all of them, at last!
Edited again: Prestige has released two more shades, Outrageous Emerald and Totally Turquoise. I haven’t decided whether to buy and swatch them yet!
As I said in my Intense Olive review, there are two things I really love about the Total Intensity eyeliner range: the intense pigmentation and the amazing lasting power. The three pencils I’ve owned for while don’t smudge or migrate on me and they last all day – I haven’t tested the three new ones, but the texture seems identical.
The pigmentation of all six eight is fantastic, and the texture is lovely. As you can see, the black and brown are matte, while the green, blue, olive, and purple are shimmery.
In the swatches below, the thin line is one swipe so you can see the pigmentation, and the larger patch is to better show the color. Click to enlarge.
The only downside to these liners is that they are very soft, and thus require frequent sharpening. You do lose some product because of this, but at around $5.50, I don’t mind – they’re still cheaper than even most other drugstore eyeliners. I find that both Urban Decay grindhouse or its Essence dupe do a great job sharpening them.
I also want to show you this picture again, from my black eyeliner comparison post. If you want the blackest eyeliner, Prestige is it – it’s even darker than Urban Decay Perversion or its dupe Milani Liquif’eye.
I know I write about these pencils a lot – I just love them so! Have you tried them? What do you think of them?
