Prestige Total Intensity 'Against All Odds' Liquid Ink Eyeliner Review

Saturday, 25 October 2014

The second batch of Prestige eyeliners I have to review were a hit! The 'Against All Odds' liquid liners are part of the Total Intensity range and come in an interesting array of colours.

"Total Intensity Liquid Eyeliner adds drama and definition with stunning results in just one stroke! Unique fiber tipped applicator provides maximum control".

Unique fibre tip applicator
Maximum control
One stroke application


From R-L: 
Tattoo- an inky black 
Stuck on You- a red toned dark brown
All Nighter- a bright midnight blue
Stalker- a creamy 'moss' green
BFF- a glittery aqua

You can get Around the Clock, an additional bright purple colour on the website. My favourite colours are Stalker and BFF. Both green shades are so unusual and stunning!

The eyeliners are super cute and miniature. I love that the lids are solid chunks of colour corresponding to the ink, making them easy to spot and grab in a drawer. 


The fibre tip is hard and quite inflexible, similar to the Prestige Intense Liquid Eyeliner Pens I reviewed previously. However the ink in this product is quite runny, so don't worry, application is still quite comfortable!


Here is one stroke of each colour. One of Prestige's claims is 'one stroke application'. I disagree with this claim because as you can see, the tip does not retain enough ink to traverse the entire lash line and the colour runs thin at around 2cm worth of eyeliner. To do my every day cat eye liner I need to redip the liner 2-3 times. This is no big deal to me, but just had to mention the claim does not hold.

The ink dries matte and is waterproof, however will rub off in flakes if you rub the liner. I don't touch my eyes at all during the day so I had no problems!

BFF
Stalker
Look 1- BFF + All Nighter
Look 2- Stalker + Stuck on You
Look 3- Stalker layered on top of brown eye shadow. The liner darkens  when placed over a dark eye shadow and the result ends up being very natural.
Liquid liners are always going to be more challenging to use than pencil or pens, however these were relatively easy to manage compared to other liquid liners. I like that the handle is very short which allows for very precise control of the eyeliner. The fibre tip is better than a hair tip (prone to fraying), however I would prefer it if it had a bit more give in it. The pigmentation is fantastic and 1 coat packs an amazing punch of colour. Importantly, thin lines and sharp wings are definitely achievable with these!

Below you can see the combination of BFF + All Nighter in action. I love this fun 'ocean-inspired' take on the traditional winged eye! From afar it's hard to notice the colours, but up close, they look amazing. I especially love BFF because the more layers you add, the more sparkly it becomes!

I feel odd posting photos without circle lenses and false eyelashes... A bit naked to be honest! I also drew my eye brows arched instead of straight- I don't know what made me do it.


Look 1 with mascara and bottom liner, all from Prestige.

Look 3 in action. It is surprisingly natural and I even wore this look to work!

Look 3- Stalker over brown eye shadow.

These eyeliners retail for $18. For an ordinary black liquid liner I would say that $18 is too expensive and that you can find liners with a better applicator, however these unique colours are not often found in stores (especially BFF and Stalker)! Taking that into consideration, my verdict is that the coloured liners are worth your money, black liners can be found elsewhere.

You can purchase these on the Prestige website, or in selected Priceline stores.

*I was gifted these products for review, my opinions are 100% honest.
