Black Opal launches a brand new look

Wednesday, 29 March 2017

Black Opal make-up is known for its intensity and bold colours – if you were looking for an electric purple or a fire engine red lippie – then this was probably your go-to brand. They’re also one of the most globally conscious cosmetic lines and have created quality, affordable products for all women since 1994.

As the brand continues to evolve, Black Opal is reaching out to the next generation of beauties with a new look this year to celebrate. The complete brand refresh includes a sharp, stylish take on the BLK/OPL logo and modernised packaging. Featuring bold square compacts, bottles and tubes that are emblazoned with the BLK/OPL logo, they’ve definitely gone for a sleeker, more sophisticated look.

Don’t panic, your fave foundation isn’t going to be discontinued, the products will remain true to their iconic formulations and an extensive array of shades. The face make-up category will remain a growing focus for the brand and the products will continue to emphasise darker tones but will also introduce a broader range of skin tones in key products.

To coincide with the re-launch, Black Opal has introduced the latest innovation in its line of skin tone perfecting makeup, True Color Ultra Matte Foundation Powder, R295. Silky smooth with a matte finish, this one-step dual active powder and foundation glides effortlessly onto the skin, providing a lightweight buildable coverage and is available in 12 unique shades.

The struggle is real for a lot of our readers to find the perfect lip colour in darker shades. So the product that really caught our attention was the BLK/OPL Color Splurge Risque Lipstick, R160. Available in matte and crème finishes, it really does glide on effortlessly and comes in seven fabulous shades. The best bit is that it actually hydrates as promised, so say goodbye to chapped lips caused by dry Highveld air or air-conditioned environments.

Black Opal is available in selected Clicks, Edgars, Foschini, Red Square and Truworths stores nationwide.

    :( So sad I missed this competition. I use the foundation stick as well as the cream foundation in truly topaz. I actually use this as a basic cover when i am lazy to do full makeup. Full coverage and a great match to my complexion. The foundation stick I actually use to contour with. Great brand!
