I’ve written quite a lot about how much I love Black Radiance lipsticks, so I thought it was time that I branched out in to Black Radiance’s other products. Black Radiance is made by Markwins, who makes Wet n Wild, and Wet n Wild’s Color Icon eyeshadow is fabulous, so I was hoping that Black Radiance’s eyeshadow formula would be good as well. I was not disappointed!
First, packaging: this is very basic packaging – a small compact with a mirror on the back, and transparent windows on the front so you can see the eyeshadows. It’s an interesting way to both allow you to see the eyeshadow and include a mirror. However, it seems like the mirror would get damaged if you carried it around with you. But, this is a soft eyeshadow formula though – like Wet n Wild’s formula – and I noticed some broken eyeshadows in store – so I actually would not recommend carrying this eyeshadow with you either on a daily basis or when you travel; it’s best used at home.
This eyeshadow duo contains a pale yellow and a deep army green. The yellow is a touch dry and a bit sheer, but has a lovely iridescence The green is soft, silky, and beautifully rich and pigmented. The texture is just fabulous – it’s like the best of the Wet n Wild Color Icon formula.
Overall, I love the colors in this duo – especially the green! – and I’m really happy with the quality. After swatching this duo, I went back and bought a couple more duos plus one of Black Radiance’s 8-pan palettes; I’ll be reviewing them all soon. If you don’t have Black Radiance in-store near you, you can purchase this duo online for $2.99 at Drugstore.com. Recommended!
