I’ve tried all types of makeup, MAC, Cover Fx, Lancôme, Fashion Fair, CoverGirl & the list can go on, but the brand I found that works best for me is Black Opal Beauty. Now Black Opal isn’t anything new. In fact, it was launched in 1997 throughout drugstores & mass merchandisers, but I always had a hard time finding it. It was either sold out or because of the “lack of color” in my community, it wasn’t even sold. So I just gave up completely and tried other brands to compliment my skin tone. I went through countless makeup that was too light and made me look like an ashy ghost, make up that was way too heavy & made me break out like crazy or it was just too expensive & I got tired spending all my hard earned dollars on products I wasn’t completely satisfied with. Now that I rediscovered Black Opal and am able to purchase it online, I’ve found my true love! I’ll share with you some reasons why Black Opal is my new favorite makeup.

This makeup is truly a lifesaver! The coverage is comparable to MAC cosmetics, minus the “Icky, sticky, I feel like I’m wearing waayyyy too much makeup” feeling. I need flawless skin, especially when I’m out all day covering events, and this product definitely delivers! I’ve been using it for a few months now and so far so good. The array of shades are great for any woman of color. But I do have to admit, I didn’t find my EXACT shade. I use both Truly Topaz & Nutmeg to get my skin color. But that doesn’t make it a bad company. I could never find my exact shade anyways, so for only $9.95 each, I don’t mind buying both!! It’s definitely less than $40 per foundation I was buying before. Plus, I get way more compliments on my makeup now.
If you’re having a hard time finding makeup for the right price, I suggest giving Black Opal a try! They offer a wide variety of shades & formulas targeting concerns like hyper pigmentation, dark spots, oil control & pore refining. You can’t beat that!
