This is the best foundation match of my life. I am not exaggerating. I am often the last shade in any range in the market. It was no different for the True Color Stick Foundation range (shade Carob). However, what Black Opal has gotten right is my neutral undertone. I can barely see the foundation over my skin. This foundation covers dark spots, and blends easily using a kabuki brush or fingers to provide a smooth, even, and flawless finish. The coverage can be buildable from light, medium or heavy, without looking cakey. This foundation gives a satin to dewy finish, so if you have combination to oily skin, I recommend you lock in the goodness with a translucent powder. In addition, this foundation does not oxidize – so you will look exactly the same as you left the house. For those who contour or apply blusher/highlighter, the formula is perfect for that too. The packaging is very practical and good for traveling with. For the affordable price, you actually get a lot of product use. I really urge women with deeper skin tones to give this brand a try.
