Black Radiance is one of those brands that I slept on because I was caught up buying expensive makeup. It happens to the best of us. Now I know there are good products out there for less than 5 bucks and my wallet thanks me for it.

Black Radiance lipsticks are moisturizing and creamy. They’re also really pigmented. I have my darker shades that I want to check out. I also have a gloss that I haven’t got around to messing with yet. Overall, I’m glad I gave BR a shot.
Black Radiance are available at Wal-Mart, Walgreens and other stores. Prices vary per store.
I bought these Maybelline eyeshadow quads with the intention to put them on with the sponge applicator. My motivation was to show that even if you’re at the beginning stages of wearing makeup you can pull off something decent. Unfortunately, that just wasn’t the case.
I started off on the wrong foot with this eyeliner. I meant to buy the Onyx Rush, a black, but I ended up coming home with Charcoal Skies, which is grey. Rather than take it back I thought I’d give it a shot anyway.

“It doesn’t get more major than this multi-faceted mascara wand. With three separate “zones” – one for defining, one for volumizing, one for curling – it gives 360-degree, instant impact.

Milani lipsticks are dope. I keep featuring them on the blog because I like them so much. They come in various finishes and glide on like a dream. You also can’t beat the price for the quality of these lipsticks. With that said this is Violet Volt and Sangria.
