Prestige is one of those brands that you happen to run into. It just happens to be at one drugstore over the other or one Ulta versus the next. It’s kinda all over the place. It’s the kind of brand that if you don’t see it enough, you forget about it unless you’re a die hard fan out here in these streets repping that prestige life. If you’re not, then you’ll probably be just as surprised as we were to find that Prestige Total Intensity Mascara is just a little bit more than fabulous.

Drugstore mascaras that make your eyes pop like Rimmel and classic cult brands like Maybelline have a new rival. This stuff goes on like Dior, separates like Est?e Lauder and costs as much as L’Oreal. The brand says it’s jet black and we can confirm that yes, it is jet black and not that in-between black that you can sometimes get with makeup that claims to be jet black. The consistency is not too thick or thin and it does not flake, clump nor has it irritated any of us who have sensitive eyes. It also lasts all day long and makes it home with you after the club, still in the place you put it–on your lashes and not running down your cheeks. It stays put but comes off easily with an oil-based remover (we were rubbing a little bit extra hard with water-based and oil free removers). That brush is the stand out though. It comes across as a remixed mix between Dior Show’s brush and Maybelline’s Great Lash. It works like crazy to give you length and falsie looking lashes.

Prestige Beyond Lashes Mascara really snuck up on us, like seriously snuck up on us and we just had to tell you because anything else would just be too selfish. Try this one out, ladies.
