Black Radiance Downtown Browns Swatches

When I saw this product on Nouveau Cheap I thought it was by wet n wild but actually its Black Radiance. I have never tried Black Radiance before but I have been really loving wet n wild eyeshadows for their amazing texture, pigmentation, and lasting power. I found that these eyeshadows are exactly like the same as the wet n wild eyeshadows but are different colors. I actually prefer these colors since they are neutral browns and suited everyday use.

This palette looks like Wet N Wild's Comfort Zone because of appearance, however the colors are not the same at all. The colors look like purples and greens but however when swatched and worn they look brow.n I really love how richly pigmented the colors in this palette are, the only shade that I did not find as pigmented is the crease color on the left side, however when worn in my crease I noticed that this one gave me the least fallout while applying.


I would have to say that this palette has some MAC dupes. The left eyelid color looks like Satin Taupe, the right eyelid color like MAC Sketch and right crease color like MAC Beauty Marked. My favorite colors are both of the browbone and accent colors.

Price wise, the cost was $7.49 at Duane Reade. There were $1 off coupons next to the displays but valid for Walgreens, however the cashier accepted it. Wet N Wild's Comfort Zone costs $5, however I feel that this Black Radiance palette is a little bit more pigmented than the Wet N Wild.

Overall, I think this eye shadow palette is good for its pigmentation, colors, value, and longevity. The only issue I had with this palatte was the fall out I got while applying the eyeshadows on my eyes. I see this palette as more as a smokey brown look than the nude browns but it stll is very versatile.

I hope this review was helpful. :)
