Black Opal makeup: a staple for years
I’ve known Black Opal makeup for years because of their foundations but never ever did I know they also sell lipsticks, lipgloss and eyeshadow. I live in the Netherlands, Europe and over here Black Opal foundations have been a staple for years.
Black Opal lipsticks
The lipsticks and lipgloss I received are:
- Black Opal Color Splurge Patent Lips: Impassioned Pink (Black Beauty Awards 2014)
- Black Opal Color Splurge Luxe Matte Lipstick: Vampy Red (free from parabens)
- Black Opal Color Splurge Luxury Creme lipstick: Tropica (free from parabens)
This Black Opal lipgloss is definitely a bestseller. It even received an award. I absolutely understand why! It’s highly pigmented and very beautiful in a glamour way. A big plus is the finish which is non sticky. I really love this!
I’m bumped out I wasn’t able to capture the immense gloss on camera. In reality it shines bright like a diamond which is really really beautiful.
Shine bright like a diamond
This lipgloss is sold by the name Black Opal Color Splurge Patent Lips and is available in 14 shades.
When I had a glance at the package I didn’t think I would be impressed as much by this Black Opal lipgloss. But I made a mistake. You know how the saying goes: don’t judge a book by its cover. So don’t be fooled by simple look of this lipgloss and the rest of the Black Opal products in the Color Splurge collection.
Vampy Red matte lips without drying out your lips
I also tried other Black Opal products like Vampy Red, a beautiful matte red lipstick. It’s not as matte as MAC Russian Red for instance , but the result is very nice like you can see in the picture below.
I’m happy to report this Black Opal lipstick stays on for more than a few hours. So I think this is a pretty lipstick for a VERY decent price. And more important, this matte lipstick from Black Opal will not dry your lips. It’s also paraben free.
Tropica: bright orange lipstick
Black Opal Tropica is a perfect summer lipstick, don’t you think so? In my opinion it’s a striking orange lipstick with a cream finish. It definitely doesn’t dry out my lips and stays on for more than a few hours.
