Black Opal Beauty Review

Good morning Ladies, Today's post will be a review on "Black Opal Beauty Cosmetics" I know many of you might already know about this amazing company since they have been around for a really long time. Black Opal Beauty is a company who designed a line of makeup specially designed to address the beauty concerns of women of color. To be quite honest ""Black Opal Beauty" was one of the first companies I noticed when first getting involved in the makeup industry to have such a variety of colors for woman of color. I am puerto rican and have a tan/beige tone to my skin so I was very happy because a lot of the other makeup brands didn't really carry too many options in color for a really long time. Black Opal Beauty" has been around since 1997 when they launched at chain drugstores and mass merchandisers throughout the US. You can find "Black Opal Beauty" at your local Duane Reade store or any other drugstore in your area or you can just shop on their website "Click Here" Did you know that "Black Opal Beauty" also carries a men's shaving line? They do..They have an anti-bump treatment, anti-bump cleanser as well as an anti-bump-gel. How great is that? I was so fortunate to have been sent a few things from "Black Opal Beauty" to try out and review for you ladies. With the skin tone I have I would fall in the tan range which will be the lightest color in the whole collection, being that I have normal/oily skin I was really surprised that the cream to powder foundation worked wonders for my T-zone..which always gets a little shiny through out the day but with the cream to powder foundation and just a little bit of the oil absorbing pressed powder I had shine control longer then any other foundation remedy ever used which I love a lot. The Mascara has to be a heaven sent and is now my favorite mascara because the wand is so fine and such a perfect size that it grabs all of my lashes and makes them look so long and glamorous..(Have to love that too lol). The only con I have is the concealer but technically is really isn't con here is why..I love my concealer to be a little lighter then my foundation so it can give me more of an awake look so this concealer I used was too much of a perfect match to my skin tone but the concealer was AMAZING to use on acne scars and dark spots I had on my face, I only applied a little onto the area then blended and added my powder and "Poof" even skin and a flawless finish. I really enjoy this line because it offers so many options to us women who do have color. Right now "Black Opal Beauty" is having a contest for the new movie "Sparkle" for a chance to win a "A Sparkle Spa and Screening Party" for you and 10 of your friends if you would like to enter please go here Have a wonderful day ladies..Tons and Tons of Moon Love
