Review of Black Opal True Color Creme To Powder by mljohnson123
Winter has truly come to the east coast and I am using Retin-A products and getting AHA peels. My face is very dry & flaky. So its time to switch to my winter skin regime; Cetaphil cream and a tiny bit of vitamin E oil at night.
Started looking for foundation formulated for dry skin. Always a challenge to find the right shade of medium-dark brown with yellow & red undertones. I tried Loreal HIP#818,820,824 (#820 is my HG perfect color when skin not so dry), MAC NW45 & NC4? mixture, Iman Clay6(original form d/c), Milani CTP(too yellow), Black Radiance CTP & sticks, Prescriptive (CustomBlend, pretty but expensive).
To my surprise, BO CTP foundation in 'Hazelnut' & 'Nutmeg' is a perfect shade/undertones. I have developed a greater respect for BO products. Especially the foundations. They have rich, highly pigmented, true-colors, with a variety of undertones, that look great and wear well. And they are reasonably priced and easy to find (Walmart, CVS, beauty supply stores) in ethnically diverse neighborhoods. You can also find them online; ie www.allurebeautysupply.com or ebay.
