You can only imagine my surprise and excitement when I received my first box of products to review for Blinging Beauty, and the Black Opal True Color Crème-to-Powder Foundation in Heavenly Honey matched my skin tone to a “T”!
Combining the benefits of medium coverage with sun protection, this hypoallergenic, dual finish formula delivers a flawless finish while also working to safeguard skin from UV damage. It's PABA-free, non-comedogenic and is designed with unique color-balancing pigments to help create a natural-looking finish that is never dull or ashy. Medium coverage. For normal to dry skin. Matte finish.
In the past, I’ve often run into the issue of a foundation color looking either ashy or too orangey on my toffee colored brown skin.
Black Opal's Heavenly Honey Foundation was not only a perfect match, it also gave me the right amount of coverage without looking caked-on or leaving my skin feeling heavy and weighted.
Another bonus was its great wearability! The foundation lasted the entire day and I only had to touch up with my translucent powder once to tone down the shine.
To ensure an even and smooth coverage, I choose to use my foundation brush instead of the handy little sponge stored conveniently in a compartment below the compact. My skin can sometimes be a little sensitive to new foundations, as well as the sponge applicators, resulting in clogged pores, breakouts, and blemishes.
Luckily I haven't had that problem with Black Opal Crème-to-Powder Foundation. This foundation also provides built-in sun protection with SPF 8, which is a huge plus in my beauty book. I really like this foundation and I’d say it’s definitely a keeper! As a result of this review, I’ve decided to add it to my beauty arsenal and I’m giving it 4.5 Blings.
Pro: A perfect match for my skin tone! Smooth, even coverage without buildup.
