BlackOpal Beauty Invisible Oil Blocking Loose Powder

*Press Sample

There is no denying tab I have been nothing but impressed each time I try a product from this brand. This hypoallergenic invisible, oil control-matte finish loose powder is no exception. 

It can be simple applied with a fluffy face powder brush or dabbing with a face puff. Since it’s an invisible finish, using over a foundation or to be directly applied is a need based choice, which makes it even more versatile. 

I have a normal-dry skin with an oily T-zone. Powders have a tendency to dry patch or settle in my fascial lines. Besides my initial inhibatations, I had nothing more than a healthy matte finish glow. 

Lasting time: I got a great wear time, towards end of 8-10 hours I did need a touch up to freshen up my look (and this happens with pretty much every brand of makeup. A good one lasts me 8 hours of wear.

The swatch shows the powder applied on the skin. The one below is blended. Notice a clear difference in the center of the hand where it’s applies.  Skin looks smoother and powder evens out the fine lines. I get a mattified healthy glow. 


OVERALL: 1oz of loose powder retails at $9.25 USD. Currently BlackOpal Beauty website has a buy one get one free promotion on all products. These loose powders have an amazing shelf life, so this might just be the perfect time to stock up. 

Black OpalBeauty ColorSplurge Eyeshadow Duos 

* Press Sample

This is a relatively new brand for me, but the more I have been exploring it, the more I have been loving it! 

Sharing with you today are the ColorSplurge Eyeshadow Duos, perfectly complementing and contrasting sets of eyeshadow colors. It comes in a super sleek and neat compact with an eyemakeup sponge included. I find the casing sturdy and of a great quality. The eyeshadows are extremely pigmented and finely milled, so working with them needs no effort. Since the duos are complementing, creating a look with them together is not a challenge for a novice like me. 

Using brush applicator or eyeshadow brush, apply color dry for a rich shimmer color or wet for intense pigmented color. To create a natural eye, apply lighter shade all over lid and darker shade in eye crease. To create a smoky eye, apply darker shade all over lid and lighter shade across brow bone as a highlighter. Use the shadows separately or blend to create multiple looks.

Overall: Sold for $6.95 Each, these are easy to carry in your makeup bag and really last all day. The compact once closed doesn’t spill product in the bag, which is a huge plus for me. They can be purchased via company Website directly. This brand is a gem, one after another it’s nothing but amazing products. I most strongly urge you to try the brand and I assure you will be converted.
