Black Radiance Liquid Lip Color Review & Swatches

Black Radiance Liquid Lip Color

On a bit of a budget? Check out Black Radiance Liquid Lip Color! For a mere $2.99 these full color lipstick slash lipgloss hybrids are quite a nice treat for lips.

Take a look!

Black Radiance Liquid Lip Color are available in nine full coverage colors. These are a hybrid formula that’s one part gloss, one part lipstick as you get the shine and texture of a gloss but the fuller color of a lipstick.

The texture is considerably thinner compared to your typically liquid lipstick and isn’t velvety but more of a hydrating gloss formula. I think too many times I run across liquid lipsticks that have matte finishes with velvety formulas. This isn’t a bad thing but I always feel they are a bit heavier! This is far glossier with a nice thin, weightless formula. I purchased the shade Sandy Nude which is a dusky peach that offers full opaque color. I think the brand does the user in an injustice because they include a sponge applicator which applies the product dryly and sheerly. A lip brush would be more beneficial in my opinion. The formula wears for around three hours on my lips while providing good color and a hint of glossiness. The initial glossiness does wear away slightly at hour two so you’re left with more of a sheen. They have a fruity perfume flavor that might be appealing to everyone, I didn’t mean but it might prove irritating to those sensitive to fragrance and flavor in their gloss.

At $2.99 each I think they are an utter steal. If you have a thinner lip brush you can dip it in the tube and forgo using the sponge as I felt like that was a minor quirk of the product that took away points from it being a completely brilliant experience. Aside from this I really liked them! The price, the formula, and the great color made Black Radiance Liquid Lip Color a truly great beauty on a budget pick up!

Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model.

    Hi. I love black radiance makeup. I start using the eyeshadow in 1999. I didnt start using the lipstick and lip gloss until 2012. The lipgloss containers, both styles never last. The lipstick always break. I never use my glosses til the end. The colors are beautiful but the packaging sucks. Please assist with this isue because the product is lovely.
