This cream foundation is packaged conveniently in a stick format that can be applied directly on to the skin and then blended out with a brush, your fingers or a sponge.
It gives a full coverage and gives you an absolutely flawless finish. While not a matte finish, it didn’t sabotage my oil control primer. The velvet finish looks very skin like which is neither matte nor dewy.
The price on Black Opal Products is vary but is usually around 24 Barbados dollars and it is available island wide at various beauty supplies.
However beware of telephones, white shirts,white paper and your hands. This foundation transfers onto everything. I find myself having to wipe down a significant amount of foundation from my telephone at the end of the day.
It was also most distressing to find out that if you touch your face you may move the foundation and worse leave fingerprints!
Because it’s a full coverage foundation in stick form, its easy to think that you should cover your face in stripes and then start to blend. In truth you only need about three stripes of strategically placed foundation to get a full face covered.
In dimly lit areas such as a bathroom, don’t be surprised if you look a little green. Weird right? Some foundations do contain a little green/yellow pigment which helps to counteract any redness from acne or rosacea. This probably accounts for this weird cast.
Around mid day it started to gather into the laugh lines around my mouth if applied heavily,some thing to be weary of if you have mature skin with some lines and wrinkles.
There is so much to love about this foundation particularly the price which is why I will continue to buy this product. The issues above can be avoided by using powerful and good setting products. At the price point and for the finish this foundation is hard to beat!
Until next post.
