Product Review: Black Opal True Color Foundation in Hazelnut

One of the most important things I’ve learnt recently is to buy makeup according to your skin type.

I wish I had known this earlier as it would have saved me a lot of cash, trials, errors and disappointments.

Black Opal True Color Foundation is a pore perfecting liquid foundation. According to them, it helps minimize the appearance of pores. It has a matte finish, light/medium coverage, oil, fragrance and paraben free.

So, I got this because I wanted a full coverage foundation and my MaryKay Timewise wasn’t doing it for me anymore. Lo and behold, I was in for a disappointment.

First of all, I have a dry skin so I’m supposed to stay away from matte products in general. Also, I can’t use a primer because, again dry skin. There’s no oil to control. On so many levels, this isn’t the foundation for my skin type. Regardless, I’ve been using it for a while now in the absence of Revlon Colorstay Foundation. It gives a decent light/medium coverage. The only catch? It needs a good powder to complement it. This is where my Milani Pressed Powder in Pecan comes in handy. It manages to give me decent coverage that lasts for a few hours with or without a primer. But recently, Nivea After Shave Balm was recommended for me as a primer ( more on that later) and the only difference is, it tries to give a flawless finish.

The Black Opal True Foundation has a watery consistency and is best applied with a makeup sponge or beauty blender. The consistency allows for fast and easy absorption by the skin.

All in all, it’s a pretty decent foundation if you’re not a fan of the cakey look and just want an easy everyday foundation.

You can get it here for N4,000. The cheapest ANYWHERE.
