The Prestige Total Intensity Long Term Relationship Eyeshadows I own, Hocus Pocus and Bewitched, are fantastic duochrome eyeshadows with a far-better-than-average eyeshadow formula for the price point. These don't crease on me (though I will say I have non-oily lids and eyeshadow's gotta be really oily to crease on me.) They are far silkier and smoother than any other drugstore eyeshadow I've tried, well pigmented, and have less powder kickback than Wet and Wild. My favorite metallic eyeshadow formulations have barely any powder dust, so I wouldn't rate this as well as my Shu or RBR. But still: these are good and at this point well worth having in my collection. Bewitched is, to a neutral hoor, the standout in the eight-piece eyeshadow collection. In the pain, it looks quite taupe. Once applied, the warmth of the base color becomes more apparent: a light (but not pale) golden brown with a hint of ruddiness. On top of this is a gorgeous, strong green hit of iridescence. It's frosty, but the visual interest of the green/teal hit keeps it from looking dated. I have Fyrinnae Envy Me and other complex neutrals with green, but I don't have any dupe for this. It looks great with Hocus Pocus in the crease; it looks great over a black base; it looks great paired with teal.

Pleasant Surprise! In Ulta, they had a new display in the Prestige Cosmetics section that caught my eye. New shadows called Total Intensity in these cute little square cubes. All shades are duochrome and I took a shot in the dark because of no testers so I picked up Bewitched and Addiction. In this line, there are 6 shades total and I plan on getting the remaining shades this week! Lets first talk about the color. Bewitched has a taupe base with green, gold and brown duochrome effects. It's like a party on my lids. The shade is so pretty, you really don't need any other shadow to pair it with unless you just wanted to add a matte light beige highlight shade near the browbone. Now, the formula. The formula was surprisingly good, not like Prestige's other shadows. These shadows are pigmented and blend so easily. To compare them to other shadows, these shadows are better than MAC Veluxe Pearl but similar to the formula with the Urban Decay Naked palette shadows. One of my best buys on the season. I definitely recommend these shadows and will buy again.

I picked this eyeshadow up at Ulta for $6.50. Whoa Nelly is this a beautiful taupe/olive green/gold duochrome. If you have green eyes, you're going to shoot laser beams from your eyes with this shadow.

I can't speak for all the shadows in this line, but Bewitched is a stunning metallic. It has a unique taupe tone. Like a mix of Le Metier Jojo/Corinthian with Urban Decay Suspect. You could definitely call it a duochrome. The texture is beyond any other drugstore eyeshadow! I have tried many dry, dusty, chalky shadows, and this is like butter. Since I was in Ulta, I could only compare it to Bare Minerals Ready shadows (the shimmer shades), or Urban Decay's new revamped formula. You could not tell the difference! I was stunned at the quality. Only this has less fallout than UD. It's under $9, buttery smooth, pigmented, and long wearing. I have to give it a 5. I just wish there were more shades in the line, it seemed like there was less than 10.
