Eyeliner -Black Radiance -Continuous Creme Eyeliner

on 9/5/2018 8:17:00 PM


mac fluidline is the best but if you're looking for an affordable gel pot eyeliner, get this and the elf angled eyeliner brush. i included a picture of br vs mac and you can't tell the difference. in person the mac's more black and applies easier, even after 4+ years of having it while i've had the br for half a year and it is drying up, like it's foamy or spongey. just takes a little more time to apply. i recommend this drugstore find, no question.

Lip Gloss -Black Radiance -Perfect Tone Lip Gloss in Blackberry

on 9/3/2018 1:37:00 AM

I am not a woman of color, but I was really drawn to this product because of its deep, almost black appearance in the tube. I love really dark colors that "transform" on application, and it's always a bit of a surprise whether they're going to look more brown, red, or plum. Blackberry is pure PURPLE! And it's very pigmented-- so much so that I squeeze out a tiny micro-dot of product and that's enough to provide a wash of purple stain to my lips. Luckily this is a squeeze tube with a slanted applicator tip so I just use the tip to blend it into my lips. Even that tiny amount is very long-lasting on the lips. If I had a deeper skin tone, I'd probably apply a more opaque layer for a really deep plum effect. This is more of a liquid lipstick than a gloss; great value and looks beautiful on!

Eye Shadow -Black Radiance -Urban Identity Shadow Trio in Charm

This eyeshadow trio costs $2.99 at my local Walgreens and Rite Aid (not all of their brick-and-mortar stores sell Black Radiance). The 3 colors are: a dark glittery silver (my least favorite as it is not as smooth and kind of patchy), a matte dark teal (leans more green than blue), and a blackened teal with subtle micro-shimmer (it applied more like a satin eyeshadow). The dark teal and blackened-teal colors are blendable and can be layered for more intensity.

Packaging is bulky with the plastic, see-through cover/top of the eyeshadow trio (unnecessary space).

Black Radiance is owned by the same company that sells Wet n Wild and is also cruelty free.

Blush -Black Radiance -Artisan Color Baked Blush in Warm Berry


Black Radiance is quickly becoming a household name among w.o.c(women of color) and for good reason. It's often hard to find cosmetics that work for different skintones and complexions. This shade in particular is amazing!! It's the perfect compliment of red and would flatter any skintones. The application is smooth as silk. Because it is a baked blush it is highly pigmented a little goes a long way. I have purchased three other bakes from Black Radiance( rich peach, toasted almond and flawless) and love them. The price is unbelievable ($5). Plus,the packaging is neat and clean so it won't take up a lot of space.

Liquid -Black Radiance -Color Perfect Liquid Make Up Oil-Free Foundation

on 4/3/2018 6:06:00 PM


I bought this foundation in Brownie and the color matches perfectly but after five hours I was very oily even though I primed my face, used setting powder, and used matte setting spray and my oil still came through. After using blotting paper the foundation looked good again.The price is great and it does dry very quickly so work in small sections. It comes with a spatula applicator but I wish it had a pump.
