Prestige Total Intensity Eyeliners

So, I was just going through the questions you all asked me in my survey from earlier this summer and in your giveaway entries, and it didn't take me long to realize that what most of you want to know from me is what my favorite products are, across the board. Well, I could tell you that right now, but I'd feel like a real schmuck doing that when I haven't even posted swatches of most of them yet. How could I tease you like that?! So what I'm going to do is keep posting as often as possible to try to get as many of my favorites as I can out in the open, in my usual way. (Because of this, you may see a slight imbalance in my reviews - lots of positive ones, all back-to-back - so don't take that as a sign that I'm turning into one of those bloggers who just raves about everything!) When I'm done, I'll make a super-awesome post listing all of my favorites with links to the posts about them so you guys can see them for yourselves! :)

With that out of the way, I suppose I don't need to tell you that Prestige Total Intensity eyeliners are one of my favorites. (Just in case I'm wrong: Prestige Total Intensity eyeliners are one of my favorites.) They rock. They're the cool hipster kids in the cafeteria that Urban Decay 24/7s, Clinique Cream Shapers, and MAC Powerpoints would give their right arms to sit with. Sadly, only L'Oreal Extra-Intense eyeliners get that honor. More on those later. :)

These have deep, intense color; they are COMPLETELY waterproof and smudge-proof on me once they set, which takes about one minute; they make for a smolderingly hot smokey eye; they're just fine for use on the waterline; they're $5-6 in most drugstores, but most reliably at Rite Aid and Ulta; and they're not for the faint of heart, as they're difficult to remove, even with a good waterproof eye makeup remover (see Example A just above...). And I LOVE THEM. That is all.

Total Intensity Eyeliner: Deepest Black, Bold Brown, Daring Green, Fierce Blue, Intense Olive, Powerful Purple


  1. Ooooooh, these look amazing, esp the green, blue and olive!

  2. hmmm wondering how are these different from the regular prestige waterproof eyeliners? thanks :)

  3. 7_victoria: in my opinion, they're nicer colors, and the formulation is way longer-lasting on me. My eyes water a lot, and these don't smear when my eyes water like the others can.

  4. Hi Kristina,

    I am living in Mass, I tried almost all of the Rite-Aids looking for it. Unfortunately, I didn't find any. Would you please tell me where you bought the total intensity line?

    Thank you!

  5. Hi Qin,

    My Rite Aid stores still have them, but you could also try Ulta or online. Hope that helps!
