Prestige Cosmetics Sweet Treats for Valentine's Day, or Any Day! Swatches & Review!

Prestige Cosmetics offers some of the highest quality affordable makeup on the market today, and I have never been disappointed with a single product that I have tried! Their Valentine's Day offerings are sure to tickle you pink!

Left to Right (and top to bottom):
1) Flawless Touch Blush in Pink Sorbet ($6.95): Pink Sorbet is a gorgeous pink with just a hint of peach. It is super soft and finely milled with lovely pigmentation.

Ingredients: Mica, Lauroyl Lysine, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Sodium Dehydroacetate, Phenoxyethanol, Sorbic Acid. May Contain [+/-]: Mica CI 77019, Titanium Dioxide CI 77891, Iron Oxides CI 77491/CI 77492/CI 77499, Manganese Violet CI 77742, Red 7 Lake CI 15850:1.

2) Shimmering Trios Mineral Eyeshadow in Prism ($11.95): Prism offers high shimmer super pigmented mineral shadows that can be used wet or dry.  The color is long wearing as well as crease resistant with or without primer on my eyelids, but if you have oily eyelids you probably will want to use a primer. The colors can be sheered out or built up to a high degree of intensity. Prism features a high shimmer silver, a high shimmer deepened wine with multicolor pearl, and a mid-tone pink (that could double as a blush).

Ingredients: Contains Carmine as a Color Additive. Ingredients: Mica, Ascorbyl Palmitate, Retinyl Palmitate, Tocopherol, Tourmaline, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter), Anthemis Nobilis Flower Extract, Sodium Dehydroacetate, Copper Powder, Silica. May Contain [+/-]: Mica CI 77019, Titanium Dioxide CI 77891, Iron Oxides CI 77491 / CI 77492 / CI 77499, Copper Powder CI 77400, Chromium Oxide Greens CI 77288, Bismuth Oxychloride CI 77163, Ultramarines CI 77077, Manganese Violet CI 77742, Carmine CI 75470, Aluminum CI 77000, Ferric Ferrocyanide CI 77510.

3) Classic Lipliner in Love ($3.95): Love is a gorgeous mid-tone pink. Prestige suggests that it glides on smoothly, won't smudge or budge, and that it offers easy application. All true, and at an unbelievable price at that!

Ingredients: Contains Carmine as a Color Additive. Ingredients: Stearic Acid , Hydrogenated Vegetable Oil, Cetyl Palmitate, Mica, Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Hydrogenated Coco-Glycerides, Rhus Succedanea Fruit Wax, Mineral Oil (Paraffinum Liquidum), Butyl Stearate, Talc, Tristearin, Stearyl Heptanoate, Synthetic Wax, Stearyl Caprylate, Methylparaben , Propylparaben, BHT. May Contain[+/-]: Mica CI 77019, Titanium Dioxide CI 77891, Iron Oxides CI 77491/CI 77492/CI 77499, Carmine CI 75470, Manganese Violet CI 77742, Bismuth Oxychloride CI 77163, Blue 1 Lake CI 42090, Red 6 CI 15850, Red 7 Lake CI 15850, Red 21 Lake CI 45380, Red 22 Lake CI 45380, Red 27 Lake CI 45410, Red 28 Lake CI 45410, Red 30 CI 73360 , Yellow 5 Lake CI 19140, Yellow 6 Lake CI 15985, Yellow 10 Lake CI 47005, Orange 5 Lake CI 45370.

4) Color Lipstick in Pink Diamond ($6.50): Pink Diamond is a very pretty and infinitely wearable mid-tone pink with nearly a frosted finish. The formula is said to hydrate and contour lips, and that it employs anti-aging technology. I find that it is long-wearing and comfortable on the lips. It is a bit hydrating, but not to the extent that you might find in a lip balm.

Ingredients: Ricinus Communis (Castor Seed) Oil (Castor), Diisostearyl Dimer Dilinoleate, Euphorbia Cerifera (Candelilla Cera) Wax (Candelilla), Bis Diglyceryl Polyacyladipate 2, Octyldodecanol, Bis-Hydroxylauryl Dimethicone IPDI Copolymer, Myristyl Lactate, Phenyl Trimethicone, Pentaerythrityl Tetraisostearate, Microcrystalline Wax (Cera Microcristallina), C10 30 Cholesterol/Lanosterol Esters, Adipic Acid Neopentyl Glycol Copolymer, Ozokerite, Copernicia Cerifera Wax Cera Carnauba (Carnauba), Mica, Hydrolyzed Hyaluronic Acid, Tribehenin, Palmitoyl Oligopeptide, Synthetic Fluorphlogopite, Ethylhexyl Palmitate, Phenoxyethanol, Ascorbyl Palmitate (Vitamin C), Capric/Caprylic Triglyceride, Caprylyl Glycol, Hexylene Glycol, Ethylhexl Glycerin, Fragrance (Parfum), Citral, Limonene, Silica, Tin Oxide, May Contain (+/-):, Titanium Dioxide CI 77891, Iron Oxides CI 77491 CI 77492 CI 77499, Ultramarines CI 77007, Carmine (CI 75470), Bismuth Oxychloride (CI 77163), Blue 1 Lake (CI 42090), Red 6 CI 15850, Red 6 Lake (CI 15850), Red 7 Lake (CI 15850), Red 22 Lake (CI 45380), Red 27 Lake (CI 45410), Red 33 (CI 17200), Red 40 Lake (CI 16035), Yellow 5 Lake CI 19140

5) Heart Shaped Sharpener ($2.95): This is the most cute pencil sharpener I have ever seen-- I love it!
