Prestige Cosmetics Bold Trio Eyeshadows in Fantasia & Moonstruck: Review and Swatches

 Press Samples 
Fantasia features a shimmery dark brown with gold pearl, a light  shimmery peach with a touch of pink, an a highly pigmented reddened brown with a pronounced green duochrome (quite reminiscent of MAC Club)

Moonstruck features a cool pale white with a blue/purple duochrome, a gorgeous shade of navy blue and a warm burnished golden orange metallic.
According to Prestige Cosmetics, these gorgeous trios feature "the ultimate range of intense colors."

Three incredibly eye-catching shades combine to create a beautiful fashion look. Long-lasting pigments provide intense color. Each trio combines duo-chrome and highly pigmented shades.

It really is hard to believe that eyeshadows this high in quality can be found at a drugstore. Prestige Cosmetics is proof positive that the gap between drugstore makeup and luxury makeup is quickly diminishing. I am so impressed by the quality of these shadows that I would argue that it actually surpasses that of many found in luxury department stores. The color payoff, the silky texture, the unbelievable pigmentation is breathtaking. Furthermore, the these colors are easy to blend snd produce no fall-out.

I have never been this impressed by affordable eyeshadows, and while these trios are more expensive than most drugstores brand- the quality is so high that the price is justifiable.

  1. Oh, that Fantasia collection looks simply gorgeous!! I love darker browns and these look so beautiful and the blue in the Moonstruck looks divine. Where can I find Prestige cosmetics?

    1. Hi Victoria!! Long time no speak! I hope that you are doing well! Both are even more stunning in person. The quality is amazing in both of these! You can get Prestige through them directly online, but also at Ulta. I have also seen their products carried at Rite Aid, but not everyone has a huge array of their products. Both of these were on sale at Ulta online for a little over $8.00 each when I last checked. I think that you will be quite pleased with the quality. I also really love their eyeliner pencils as well. It's definitely a line worth becoming acquainted with. :D
