REVIEW || BLACK OPAL

Wednesday, June 17

Hey lovies!! I know I have been away for a while and I haven't posted as much as I should, but I am trying to develop a schedule for posting. I am thinking two or three days out of the week including Monday and Friday. Those are not the official dates, but I will update you guys on the dates that I have chosen. Please comment down below if you guys have any thoughts or recommendations.

If you guys have not heard about Black Opal, then continue reading my review all about it.
Black Opal is a brand which specializes in makeup for darker skin tones like myself. Since I leave in the Caribbean I haven't experienced a problem in finding the right shade of foundation but finding a good quality foundation is a much larger task. Black Opal's products are very affordable in St. Lucia and you can find it at numerous beauty supply stores.


On another note, I tried a little bit of blogger type photography. I am not a professional at all and you guys know that I am a new blogger (noob lol), so I'm still getting used to this new blogger lifestyle. I'm not to sure if I did great a job or not or if I have succeeded, but at least I tried and did a little something. "Practice makes perfect", so I guess I'm gonna keep on trying. If you guys like the pictures please let me know in a comment down below.



I've been wearing makeup for almost two years now, and I remember the first foundation that I used, my mom bought it for me and it was Black Opal Creme To Powder Foundation. I remember how smooth and airbrushed my skin looked and the first time I ever wore it to go outside, I remember getting a lot of compliments from my cousins and neighbours. To this day, I haven't repurchased it because my shade "Beautiful Bronze", seems to be the most common shade in my country, which means they run out of it very quickly. Instead, I decided to buy the Black Opal True Color Creme Stick Foundation, and I haven't been its biggest fan. The foundation is great, but I just don't like it as a stick. For me, it was hard to blend it out into my hairline and my neck using my beauty blender. I don't use it anymore but my mother uses it and she seems to like it more than I do. I'm happy with the coverage and it does remind me of the Creme To Powder Foundation.



Please note that a lot of these products are not in my correct shade. The Black Opal Even True Concealer was actually on sale when I bought it (lucky me). Mahogany was the lightest shade that was available at the time so I had to get it, and did I mention that it was on sale? As a concealer, I would not rate it a ten or anything close to a ten. If you're seeking for a light coverage foundation then this product is a great replacement for your foundation. One of the things that I am not a fan of was the roller ball application (I think that is what it's called), where you press the ball onto your skin as you roll it all over where you are applying the concealer. Sometimes you have to press really hard for the concealer to come out, which hurts (ouch!!). This product also has a very watery consistency which makes it very easy to blend but after a few hours the concealer seems to disappear, not literally disappear, but it doesn't appear as prominent as it should.



The last Black Opal product that I own is the Black Opal Oil-Absorbing Pressed Powder. This product actually belongs to my mother hence the reason why it is in the shade "Truffle" (which is not my correct shade). Although it is a bit dark for me, you can't really tell when I apply it very lightly over the Black Opal True Color Creme Stick Foundation. Overall this is my favourite Black Opal product because it does exactly what it is meant to do -which is to absorb oil- and it lasts for a very long time. By the end of the day, when I need to freshen up my makeup, just a few dabs of this product and I honestly look brand new. This product is definitely up for a repurchase but in my correct shade of course. 

Thank you all for reading my posts and for all of my 60 followers on Bloglovin'. Air hugs and kisses to you all!!
