Black Opal Haul

Tuesday, March 29, 2011





Since I found out Black Opal stick foundation is Sam Fine's foundation of choice, I decided to check them out.
First I got 3 shades for myself and liked them so I decided to get all 6 shades.

I got them while I was in Lagos. After almost buying the fake version I was saved when I found an official Black Opal distributor: 
Kuddy Cosmetics. They have a bunch of stores in Lagos. I went to the one at 17, Koseh Street, by Bankole Street, Lagos.

I went in to get all the shades of their stick foundation but ended up getting a bit more...*guilty face* I also learnt how to spot a fake but I'll tell u more about that later ;-) Photobucket
I got...
Stick foundation in Hazelnut, Beautiful bronze, Carob, Truly topaz, Nutmeg and Heavenly honey.

Deluxe Finishing Powder in Dark and Neutral light

Eye shadows in 286 (matte dark taupe), 133 (mint green), Grape vine (matte pink, charcoal) and Shimmer dust in Copperlit
Photobucket
Lip palette in Bronzed jewels and Mascara in Classic black  Photobucket
So far I'm really happy with them. Detailed review soon ;-) 
Like I mentioned earlier, there are a lot of fake Black Opal cosmetics out there so know your source!!!

  3. hmm... they have some really nice products but i dont like the stick foundations cos they are very oily. i have normal/combination skin and i use marykay foundation normally and i hardly ever blot my face. but whenever i use black opal, i start blotting from when i finish doing my makeup.

    i like them though cos they have full coverage qualities and when im using them on a client, i usually have to use a really good primer and finish off with an oil control powder.

    apart from the stick foundations, they have really nice products. im wondering how come you didnt buy any of their blushes. i have 2 of them and they are staples in my kit.

  4. Yay Black Opal,My haul includes their Shadows,Blushes,Powders & Stick Foundations.But a hint,it sometimes,leaves an Orangey hue after a few hours,so going a shade lighter in the T-zone should help.

    There's actually another bigger kuddy store right by Apongbo bridge.Hola when next you are in town,so that we can go discovering.Lots of hidden Makeup Providers in Lagos Island.

    Great Post Dear!!

  5. Oh thanks for the tips ladies, now I'm even more excited!
    @Nikkosho I'll post full reviews once I have had a good feel of the products
    @BO I intended to get only the foundations all the other things I got i did because they were in plain sight and I couldn't help myself :-)
    @PrettyK I went to the Apongbo branch too! LOL just to see it though because I had already bought everything in the smaller one.
