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:
Like the name states, this color is everything bronze and more. Just pigmented and beautiful.
I was amazed at how beautifully this shade reflected in the light.
This color has gorgeous reddish brown hues that is perfect for the holidays.
This is such a beautiful mauve shade that would compliment most skin tone.
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.
- Weightless and comfortable on the lips
- Long Lasting
- Amazing light reflection
- Dried super fast and did emphasize some of the lines in my lips
