Black Girl Magic with Black Radiance

Disclaimer: Photos are not mine
Fall must the season for jewel tones! Cosmetic lines are debuting jewel tones to welcome in everyone's favorite season.
Black Radiance Cosmetics has decided to join in on the fun by debuting four limited edition jewel tones liquid lipsticks, expanding their "Perfect Tone" matte lip creme line (in my opinion is the BEST drugstore liquid lipsticks besides NYX cosmetics now).
The liquid lipsticks again are limited edition and is out now. They are definitely perfect for dark to deep dark skintones. Their lip cremes are very pigmented and long lasting. The only con I have with them is that they can be very drying on the lip so I do suggest moisturizing your lips. The lip cremes are stay proof. My favorite colors are "Matte Bright" and the purple one! They just make your lips pop!
I can not wait to try these on myself and on my clients!!! Which ones are you getting? Are you getting the entire collection? What do you think about the Black Radiance lip cremes? Leave your thoughts in the comment section below.

Simple and bold all summer ’17

Hello!! Louisiana tends to get extremely hot so I decided my signature look will be a simple face and a bold lip. Summer is the PERFECT time to go bold. Yesterday I decided to try my sample of the Lancôme Teint Idole foundation I gotten from Dillard’s about a month ago. I am in the market of expanding my foundation line and I want to start buying more “higher end” foundations and since I have heard rave reviews why start with Lancôme?? My first impression is that it’s very comfortable on the face for me a little went along way I just added more where I needed the coverage and that was in my t zone. The Foundation lasted even through the heat and I sweated lol. This is now on my buy list. 

The very bold orange lip I am rocking is “Matte Bright” by Black Radiance Cosmetics. This liquid matte lipstick is very bright, I actually built it up bc I wanted to blind the people, but a little goes a long way for this as well. The lippie can be drying but applying a lip balm, wipe, then apply the lippie you should be fine. This lipstick does has lasting powers so you won’t be reapplying as much. This lippie works great with medium to deep skin tones. Though Black Radiance is catered to Women or Men of color (it is NOT black owned) the liquid lipsticks can work for ALL skin tones! 

If you are not already, please follow me on Snapchat at CreatingCanvasesMakeup there I am giving my opinion on this lippie and I talk about a blinding highlight you won’t believe from…and it cost me only $1.99
