Black Radiance Precious Metals Lip Kit

After trying out Fenty Beauty’s Snow Nights collection, I realized that some metallics with very good formula can be very flattering on the lips. I was on a quest to try other brands which brings me to my next metallic lipstick purchase from a Black Radiance.

Black Radiance is the newest brand to my collection. One thing that I always try to incorporate into my makeup collection is newer brands as often times you can find good quality for less than half the price compared to other major brands.

The lipsticks come in a nicely packaged gold box with a bold font.

It then flips open to reveal the three Perfect Tone Metallic Matte Lip Crémes in Bronze, Copper and Rose Gold as well as the hashtag ‘blackgirlmagic’ which I thought was pretty awesome as this is a black owned brand.

I was amazed at how affordable the lipsticks were at less than $10 for the kit. Apart from a few drugstore metallic lipsticks like Wet N Wild, that price was unbeatable, especially for three lipsticks.

Now let’s get into the lipsticks:

Bronze

Like the name states, this color is everything bronze and more. Just pigmented and beautiful.

Metallics are definitely not your everyday lipsticks. We may all know that metallic lipsticks can either be a hit or miss for most of us mostly because they are often not the most flattering on the lips. They can sometimes be very drying which makes for a very unattractive look. Normally wearing a clear gloss on top helps with the dryness.

One thing that you have to keep in mind if you plan on wearing metallic lipsticks is that you have to exfoliate your lips and keep them well hydrated and moisturized as unlike other lipsticks metallics may not be that forgiving.

Overall these were great lipsticks and can be comparable to some higher end brands. The best part about them for me was how complimentary they were to my skin tone. Also the metallics were present but did not overwhelmingly stand out.

Pros:

  • Affordable
  • Weightless and comfortable on the lips
  • Long Lasting
  • Amazing light reflection

Cons:

  • Dried super fast and did emphasize some of the lines in my lips

Pat McGrath Labs Mini MatteTrance Trio

Pat McGrath is one of the most well known makeup artist in the world and her makeup is like a prized possession for many.

When Pat McGrath lipsticks became available in minis I jumped at the opportunity and got myself a pack of the Colour Blitz Mini Matte Trance. One of her lipsticks go for $38 so I was shook when I saw that she had minis available for $25. That was definitely a steal for me.

Lipsticks I Wore in a Week

Lipsticks are one of the biggest selling beauty products of all time. It’s also one of the first things that we notice our mothers wear as kids which is why lipsticks are one of the beauty products that first peeks our interest as teens.

As a young girl, this was one of the things that I noticed my mom would always wear and I know for sure that’s where my obsession first started.

Like many people, you will never catch me without any lip product in my purse. Even if it’s just a lip balm. I notice that I do a pretty good job of switching through my lipsticks. I cycle through long lasting mattes, glosses and creamy lipsticks.

e.l.f. Liquid Matte Lipstick

e.l.f. Liquid Matte – Top Drugstore Lipstick?

I’ve tried quite a few drugstore lipsticks but el.f. wasn’t one of them.

My usual purchases from e.l.f include brushes, contour and blush set as well as their lip balms and lip exfoliators so yeah, I have to admit that to me it’s a decent drugstore brand as I frequently purchase their products.

New to my list of e.l.f products is their liquid matte lipsticks. They come in eleven different shades and I purchased four of them online from Ulta.

Get The most Bang for your Buck with NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams

I thought that there was no drugstore lipstick that could make me feel this way, but after trying these metallic lipsticks from NYX, I was like WHOA!

The power of the pigment in these lip creams had me shook.

Back in the day when my coins were scarce, they’re still scarce now but back then they were a lot more scarce,  NYX was one of my favorite makeup brands but somehow I got into the hype of trying other brands and I slowly forgot about them.

But that’s about to change……Read More »

Anastasia Beverly Hills Matte Lipstick Set

NEW Anastasia Beverly Hills Lipstick Set

The story goes that ABH is on top of the list when it comes to makeup so of course I wanted to investigate for myself.

I have actually tried ABH in the past and I have to admit that their makeup is a force to be reckoned with. I tried their summer lip gloss set and I was very happy with them. The colors were absolutely gorgeous and I still frequently wear them to this day.

I recently picked up the Mini Matte Lipstick Set at Sephora a few weeks back because I wanted to see if they were as good as the lip gloss.
