Very good powder for the $$. Provides a flawless finish over foundation or just apply a primer and this powder and you will look great. Do not sleep on Black Opal Cosmetics. This line could give MAC some competition for WOC!
This product is great. I'm sorry I didn't find it earlier.
Pros: excellent coverage, soft matte finish, great color selection, very long wearing, reasonable price
Con(s): transfers easily (but only if worn alone)
Good for wearing over light foundations. Will definitely repurchase.
A WINNER!! I have a short budget so why not try this Black Opal is known to be an ok to good brand when it comes to black skin make up.. So there I go after purchasing n falling in love with the invisible oil blocking powder from the same brand I'm trying this cause I also wanted a free powder. I absolutely fell in love with it it's fine milled, easy to kabuki on, amazing matte finish great color (got this in medium) very good for a light cover up gives GREAT GLOW to ur face n does not make u look gray another good news is that it stays I touch it up mid day n eventually when i finish work round 9 pm with the invisible oil blocking PP n that's IT!!a little goes along way!!! other wise i use it over my dream matte mousse from maybelline n fix the whole thing with the invisible oil blocking PP I'm telling u this is my winner perfect face always pitcure ready combination!!
In terms of results I have nothing to envy to the departement store make up results I tried it cause I thought the more expensive the better I was wrong!! I rather this DELUXE powder than the MAC free powder !! Too bad it's not known n recognize enough, more for the addicts!! I would definitely buy again when it's ready to finish looks like it lasts a looooooong time!!
I am truly stunned that this product does not have more reviews. I think that many people are unaware of how wonderful this product is because it is a drugstore product. I will willingly admit that I am quite a drugstore makeup snob-- I always go for high end makeup with the exception of mascara. Ventured into using drugstore foundation once or twice but always went back to department store foundation. Anyway, I bought this on a whim because I had forgotten all of my makeup at home (I'm a college student) and needed something to tide me over for a bit. I bought this in neutral light and I was stunned at how beautiful the finish was--luminescent without looking oily or greasy. Perfect coverage. I now only use this over concealer. No liquid foundation which used to be a MUST. This is not even marketed as a powder foundation, but it works just as well if not better than powder foundations I have tried. Gives the look of perfect skin.
i liked this when i was younger (probably didnt kno any better) and used it until finished.
repurchased years later..because...i dont even kno why
and i hate it....i feel it makes me look ashy...and...i jus hate it
I took a chance and purchased this powder. I was looking for the perfect powder; not too yellow, but a little red, not too dark or light. Turns out it was a winner for me. I have dark-brown skin with yellow & red undertones(BO Nutmeg/Hazelnut or HIP #818). And this powder in 'Medium' is perfect for me. It is a medium-brown with yellow & red undertones. Very finely milled powder. Blends well with a good powder brush. Highly pigmented so don't need much. Comes in a good sized shaker jar that only dispenses a small amount of powder. Cost $9 bucks from CVS, or $7 at Walmart. ***** Update 1/27/07 *****Bought Iman drugstore powder at ULTA. They are they most beautiful powders. So will not repurchase. continued >>
