Product Review: Black Opal Stick Foundation

One of the most common things I hear being a makeup artist is women with darker skin tones having limited options of finding products to match. *that and most are in denial of their true complexions*

Black Opal True Color Stick Foundations is a really amazing and budget friendly product with excellent shades for darker skin.

The formula of the Stick Foundation is very pigmented and creamy with a medium to full coverage. The colour matching for darker skin is amazing and blends beautifully. 

I have to say I would not recommend this for lighter-medium skin tones as the lighter colors seem to oxidize and turn orange *hopefully this will be corrected soon*

Bonus on this product? at $10.00 USD this is a steal!!

What They Say:
"Sometimes you do have something to hide and this creme foundation housed in a portable stick, can make camouflaging problem areas on the face that much easier. This PABA-free, hypoallergenic formula protects skin from UV damage, won't clog pores and blends smoothly to give you the flawless face you've always wanted. Full coverage. For all skin types. Velvet finish."

Application Tip: 
-Apply a stroke of foundation on the forehead, chin, down the nose and cheeks then blend with a damp sponge or a foundation brush with a bit of moisturizer to get a natural finish to your makeup.

- I recommend a loose no color translucent powder to set this foundation as the foundation tends to be such a true match any slight color in the powder could alter the shade.
