Today, I’m going to share my review on a cream eyeliner from this American Drugstore brand Black Radiance. This is one eyeliner where my search ends for a matte finish, smooth, non- tugging, smudge proof eyeliner. Yes, this is my Holy Grail eyeliner. I am not very fond of eyeliners that’s why I use more kohls or pencils. But now I have started using eyeliners, once or twice a week 😛 Courtesy: Beautiful pics on IMBB. Yes, putting an eyeliner correctly, makes a whole lot difference on the face. Let us move on to my experience with it.
Endlessly defines the eyes with either a soft, smoky look or a dramatic, precise finish. The creamy texture lines and contours the eye with a smooth, rich application without tugging or pulling on the lid.
• Highly pigmented to create sharp, defined lines or smooth, refined lines for a smoky, sultry look
• Fast drying and smudge resistant to keep eyes emphasized all day long
• Professional, slanted liner brush included for precision application
• Water resistant
Made in China
Dip liner brush into creme eyeliner. Draw a smooth line as close to upper lash line as possible, starting from the inner to the outer corner of eye. After use, close cap tightly to preserve creme.

My Experience with Black Radiance Classic Black Continuous Creme Eyeliner :
Packaging: It comes in a cute rectangular glass pot with a black lid and an angular brush.
Brush : Small angular brush. Bristles are tightly packed. Does not shed even after multiple washes. Picks up the eyeliner really well. However, sometimes tends to pick more than required, but you can always wipe off the excess from the sides of the jar.:D
Shades: Classic Black and Rustic brown
About the Creme Eyeliner:
• Smoothest and creamiest formula ever tried! Yes, at such a low price, this product is a steal.
• Gives a semi-matte finish
• Does not smudge or irritate my eyes. Good staying power on oily eyelids. Stays evenly on the waterline and does not sting even a bit.
• No tugging required, brush glides very smoothly.
• It dries faster than liquid eyeliner and it is completely waterproof. I washed my face and to my surprise, it was still on my eyelids without giving me racoon eyes :P. However the color lightens a bit but it wasn’t smudged.
• Can be removed easily with any oil-based make up remover. I use my favourite Johnsons baby oil, and it is all gone in a couple of swipes.
• There is a white seal inside the cap, which prevents the product from drying ( I guess) 😀
• I have been using it for a few months now. I have heard that these eyeliners tend to dry fast but I have not seen any such issues in this eyeliner.
• I really want these companies to bring their products to India. It is so reasonable compared to other cream eyeliners or gel eyeliners in India.
