I wanted a bold colour and it was on sale at London drugs...
Price: $5.58 CAD
Pkg: clear-top lid
Colour: (Berry Fantasy) plummy berry-like fuchsia

I love how smoothly it goes on my lips. The sheen it gives off is natural and very flattering. Wears for a decent amount of time too.

I think this may be the worst lipstick I hve ever tried! I dug 2 of these out of the ulta clearance section thinking 2 bucks for a lipstick um yes please! I wish I had saved my $4 and bought a frappuccino instead. This stuff is terrible. The packaging has a supposed representation of the color on the bottom, it does not look anything like a swatch. The peachy color is swimming in chunky frosty glitter and the red I bought because it looked burgundy but on it looks like a hooker dips her lips on a newly painted fire hydrant. They are super drying. Now I live in a desert so take that for what its worth but I've never had this kind of trouble with a drying formula. I tried these like twice so there has not been a lot of wear and tear but the packaging is falling apart on both of them and the lid comes loose. Don't purchase, get some cotton balls or something instead.

I found plenty of Prestige lipsticks on a clearence box in Big Lots for 2 dollars, i bought the Naked shade, that nobody here has reviewed.
I didnt knew Prestige lipsticks, i just read some good reviews about that brand, and i liked the package and i didnt had a nude lipstick, so i taked this :)
Is a very matte lipstick, not super pigmented, i neeed to apply this like 4 times to get a nude lip. i used this over a balm, because if you dont do it your lip lines will look more obvious with this:P, then i put a clear, pink or peach gloss for a shimmer!
I dont think i will re buy it, i found this on cleareance and bought because it was nude, and they are plenty of more quality nude lipsticks!!

Does anybody know what is happening to the Prestige Lipstick line? I've written the company via their website, but I haven't received even so much as an auto-responder confirming that my correspondence has been received. The reason I ask? Prestige lipsticks are on clearance at Rite-Aid stores, and beyond that nobody else stocks this brand (not anything resembling a complete collection, anyhow).
The unusually high ratings among those who have tried Prestige lipsticks testifies to the fact that these are (or were) some of the best lipcolor values on the market. They are among the best quality because the tubes are constructed of sleek frosted silver metal that is not prone to loosening or cracking like the plastic lippies. This brand also offers the best color indicators. There is no need look at an inaccurate color sticker or squint down the barrel through a clear plastic window to see what is inside. Rather, what looks to be the actual lipstick is packed under clear plastic at the base of each Prestige tube. As such, there is no need for a tester to get a good idea of the color inside. This makes Prestige brand lipcolors exceptionally easy to shop for as drugstore brands go.
All but one of my Prestige Lip Colors is from the Classic matte/creme series (designated as "CL-ID#"). The "newer" colors are mostly pearlized designated by the "PL-ID#" and among them there are a lot of unique color choices (or at least there were before the displays started going empty). Prestige also offers a decent assortment of red, plum and wine colors deeply pigmented lipsticks you actually want to wear. (My favorite red was "Garnet", a medium-dark velvet red-plum shade that is misleadingly portrayed online as dark yellow brown.)
Many of the original Classic Prestige shades included dusty mauves, natural nudes, brown pinks, red browns, tawny copper corals, purple-reds, brown-purples and a host of other hues that were shockingly flattering and exceptionally well thought out. Each Classic shade always had enough pink/peach/brown/red in them so that they were neither dull and lifeless like so many nudes these days, or garishly unnatural as is the case with many more lipsticks. The result was a very sophisticated color pallet from an unusually opaque peach matte tone called "Hope" (now discontinued), to the pleasingly neutral mauve/coral/nude "Petulant Rose", to the medium deep mauve/plum/brown "Rosewood" to the striking red/wine Garnet. The result was a variety of shades to flatter a variety of skin types and a look that conveyed they belonged alongside one's natural complexion, no mixing or blotting required.
The entire line of Prestige Classic Lipcolors are high quality and inexpensive at the same time. And they don't exude perfumy or waxy fragrances, either. But above all other drugstore brands, the classic matte/creme formulations wore like real lipsticks do: less like slick tints or sticky glosses and more like lip stains/waxes. (And yes, that means that lipsticks are supposed to feel a tad more "heavy" or "drying", but certainly nothing a touch of gloss couldn't fix if one were willing to sacrifice a bit of wear time to obtain the desired lip balm feel.)
Prestige Lipcolor's matte shades remain in place hour, after hour after hour. Sure you have to reapply every now and then, but they do not slip off in mere minutes, and when they do fade it is evenly and gradually so that one's lips are never entirely naked after a sip of coffee or a meal, for example. I, for one, am sad to see these leave the US market seemingly so and hope that the Prestige Cosmetics brand will continue to survive in other markets.
Having sung their praises, I suspect I know why Prestige lipcolor is being sold off in the few local stores that carry it. A few years ago I bought what I thought was a replacement for my classic peach creme/matte shade called Hope which I adore because it was neither sheer nor muddy orange beige and to my utter disappointment it had been reformulated with a pearl finish (PL-25A, discontinued too). This shade just doesn't look natural even alongside a fair complexion. The light, bright pink-orange pigment and the silvery white frost blends poorly and competes for attention. And because of its lighter moisturizing texture, the PL-series Prestige lipsticks, in general, float on top of the lips waiting to slip off. It's a sub par formula all the way around, but because I am adverse to waste Hope is now my "highlighter" for lipsticks that impart more pigment and wax (grip).
Overall, I don't care for Prestige's current lipcolor formula, most of which are waaay too frosty. Even though the PL-series goes on easily with a moisture feel, most of the colors are just too off-the-wall and slip too quick, which is why one lippie is missing from my rating. Even by L'Oreal or Revlon's standards even by pricey department store standards Prestige hit upon a good thing when they released their first "classic" lipsticks. I suspect that the day that Prestige Cosmetics buckled to the pressure to have their lipsticks feel like the rest of the lightweights on the market which is when they also discontinued much of the nude/neutral/classic color pallet that had just begun to come into its own popularity wise they lost their edge. If PC has any sense, they will bring back more finishes and colors so that those who loved this brand early on for its wearing power and complexion-flattering shades will have something to repurchase time and time again, while those who loved this brand for its funky frost colors will still have something distinctive to shop for by drugstore standards. Discontinuing the lip line entirely which is what retailers appear to be doing isn't the answer, but it may already be too late for Prestige Cosmetics. If you're a fan of these lippies or their cosmetics in general, buy them while they last! And shake 'em up with an email too: www.prestigecosmetics.com.

I got these for an excellent deal. $1.20 each! I got Madrid and Slipper. Slipper is a gorgeous champagne color thats super moisturizing and unscented, where as madrid is a to-bright-for-words color that dries out and smells like rotton eggs. I think it just depends on which one you get, i love slipper but hate madrid, Oh, and how they show a little circle of "the color" on the bottom? Yeah, thats not the color. Madrid looked like a gorgeous gold pink (kinda like nars orgasm) and slipper looked like a nude pink. when madrid is a fugly barbie pink and slipper is a peachy color!

Color: CL-98A Hanna was much better than Prestige's Spunky color. It's a lightly frosted neutral beige that goes on creamy, not too sheer, but not highly pigmented, either. The color on the bottom of the tube you see before buying does not accurately reflect the light frost - it looks unfrosted until you put it on. All the same, the frost is so similar to the base color it isn't garish. The last tube of Prestige lipstick I purchased did not fit well - the top kept sliding off and made a horrible mess in my bag. This tube fit much better and hasn't come loose. Not bad quality, nice creamy texture, but the color was a bit too sheer compared to what I was looking for. It's just sort of blah. I'm still on the hunt for the perfect nudie color with less sheer.

Wellllll....I can only comment upon the Cyber formulation of this lipstick. I love this color, it is entirely unique and probably the closest to Prouenza Pink (which I have) that I have found. If you're looking for a very pale, very sheer pink, this is it. My HG lipstick, with the exception that it doesn't last long and appears (from Prestige web site) to be d/c'd. If you find it, snatch it up!!!

Love "Electra" - HG status. Get this BOGO at Walgreen's - 2 for under $5.00. Cool, shimmery MLBB shade that is subtle and sophisticated; wear day or night. It looks like they may have discontinued this shade though, (check their web site) so if you like it, stock up now. Prestige has a US color chart posted that looks intriguing, but I have not yet been able to find these latest shades anywhere (Lolita, Lisa, Heather) - wish their merchandisers would stock current product.

Found this in Pinot Noir, the perfect deep wine. Blends fantastically and lasts well. Great find for $3.
Age: 30-35 Skin: Combination Hair: Black Eyes: Brown
Tried this based on reviews - Walgreens had a buy 1, get 1 half off, so both lipsticks cost me about $7. I bought Spark & Garnet but I like Garnet much better (Asian, NC37) - Garnet goes on deep reddish/brown on me, very pretty, esp when you add a light layer of gloss. I think it might be a bit drying, but regardless of any brand of lipstick I wear I always layer some Dessert Sun shea butter lip balm b/c my lips are always dry. Spark turns out to be a pretty shimmery brown but I don't think it does much for me - it did not have as as much pink as I'd like so I might exhange that out for something else. I really like this lipstick as it has no awful smell (like L'Oreal). EDIT: Still love Prestige lipsticks. I did switch out the Spark for Raisin, which shows up a very pretty purple, very much like one of my fave Clinique's "Different Grape" l/s so I won't be purchasing that one anytime soon. Another update: found Pinot Noir in a Walgreens discount basket for $1. Looked super dark but I really wanted to try it so what the heck if I waste a buck? Well, surprise surprise - it's a beautiful deep wine purple shade that did not turn vampy on me. It's quite pigmented so while I can wear it full strength, I love to put in on and rub it into my lips with my fingers for a nice stain. Very pretty esp with a dab of gloss on top.

I have bought and thrown away so many drug store lipsticks, that I don't even remember when (or why) I bought this. I had it for months before I tried it and now I love it. I bought it in Spark and the color is perfect for me. I hate putting stuff on my lips, but this goes on smoothly and is so creamy, I forget it's there.

I purchased these in several colors. Classic Lipstick Formula(Matte): Snob, Raven, Catwalk, Pudding, Beet. Satin Pearl Lipstick Formula(Frost): Hazelnut, Brown Sugar, Antique, Copper, Bronzeberry. My favorites so far is Pinot Noir. A dark wine shade. Nice smooth texture, rich beautiful color & last most of day. Can't beat the price $4. I will repurchase.

This may be my favorite lipstick. I have 'glitz' and it has such a pretty dusty pink sheen. The texture is amazing and it smells great.

I absolutely love this lipstick. I don't remember what colour I purchased it in- but I have the hardest time finding a colour that looks good on me.
This lipstick stays on, and I can choose how much I put on, a lot or a little.
100% will buy again.

This line is becoming a favorite. I have the l/s in Pout and Sand. Both go well with almost any makeup, are creamy and last a while. Pout is a fleshy beige, which I liven up with clear gloss, while Sand is a light pinkish brown, perfect for the office. I got these from a friend, so can't beat "free", but I'll repurchase because they're also affordable.

This lipstick is great! Cheap, nice texture and pretty colors. I have Mojave, Spark, Cork, Luster, Fire and Sand. All beautiful shades for my warm/fair coloring. The packaging is a cute sleek silver tube. Recommended!
Age: 30-35 Skin: Combination Hair: Brown Eyes: Brown
I have it in VIP and the color is absolutely perfect YLBB for me. Not too pink, not too brown, just wonderful.
Staying power is great, but i find it a bit drying.
Age: 44-55 Skin: Dry Hair: Brown Eyes: Hazel
Prestige's lipsticks feel good on and have no objectionable smell. They go on smoothly and the colors stay true. There are a lot of colors to choose from too.
I've tried tons of more expensive brands, and keep coming back to my Prestige lipsticks. I hate lipstick that feels heavy, greasy or waxy and don't want to have to smell a perfume-y lipstick right under my nose all day.
For the $3.oo (US) or so they cost, they're a total beauty steal. BTW, my sister used to work for Prestige and she tells me that they manufacture a number of the more expensive department-store cosmetics. According to her, many of their formulas are identical to makeup that costs a heck of a lot more in a designer package...

I really like the color selection and I like the packaging too. I just wish this had more staying power. I hate the long lasting lipsticks because they tend to dry my lips out. This one disappears really fast. Where is the happy medium, I digress. Honestly though, for the price who cares if you have to constantly reapply?
Age: 18 & Under Skin: Dry Hair: Brunette Eyes: Violet
I love the color Spark. I was wasting my money buying the exact same lipstick (Cliniques Lipstick in Surprise) The red with the brown undertones with a brownish gold shimmer didn't overwhelm my pale skin or large lips. It also doesn't dry out my lips or look cakey. The color would be perfect for anyone, especially for those who want to try reds but are afarid of looking silly.
