Prestige Cosmetics Golden Summer Collection: Golden Luminizer, Golden Summer Bronzer Glow & My Waterproof Lashes Mascara Review & Swatches

Press Samples
Prestige Cosmetics has outdone themselves with their Golden Summer Collection this year. Their well-edited offerings have everything that you could possibly need to get your glow on this summer! What's more, the quality is exquisite and the prices are very reasonable. I am continually impressed that Prestige Cosmetics is able to consistently make amazing quality products at drugstore prices!
Golden Summer Bronzer in Glow ($9.95) "provides natural effects and highlights. Sun-kissed, radiant coverage for a stunning warmth or an instant golden glow." Combined with their Luminizer you can easily achieve the "perfect summer look."
Their Golden Summer Bronzers are available in two shades, Glow and Warmth, "which gives skin a sun-kissed and radiant summer glow. It can be used on face or body."
The gorgeous golden sun is an overspray that promptly disappears after the first application. The texture of the bronzer is silky smooth and creamy, and therefore it applies like a dream. 
The color is a luscious golden copper sheen that is quite buildable, but can easily be sheered out for subtle radiance. It's unbelievably gorgeous! It resides somewhere between a bronzer and a luminizer with respect to the gorgeous ethereal sheen!

Golden Summer Luminizer ($7.95) offers, "sun-kissed, radiant coverage for a stunning warmth or an instant golden glow. Enhance your natural or bronzed skin tone with this liquid sunshine. Give your complexion a subtle sunkissed shimmer with this luminous liquid bronze highlighter."

Golden Summer Luminizer is a "bronzer in liquid form that enhances skins natural tone with a bronze highlight." It is a gagagagorgeous luminizer that can be used all by itself, or can be mixed with your foundation, tinted moisturizer, or BB Cream sparingly. It offers the most beautiful ethereal glow that is utterly swoon-worthy!

My Waterproof Lashes Defining Mascara ($6.95) "The waterproof mascara has a sculpted brush that delivers mascara in a pattern that results in natural length and fullness." Prestige says that this waterproof mascara is "ready for any occasion" and that is no joke. Once this deep and rich black mascara sets it really stays put. You can swim, shower, or cry-- and it will not be seen running down your face. I tried to remove it with a cleansing water and it simply would not comply. My cleansing oil, on the other hand, removed every last bit.
