Black Opal Flawless Perfecting Concealer Swatch


I hope your weekend was awesome just as much as mine! :) 

Today I come to you with a drugstore concealer that I came across on one of my many unplanned strolls through the beauty aisle of CVS.  Luckily for me I was able to find a gem from Black Opal Cosmetics, one my faves when it comes to drugstore brands.  If you know Black Opal then you know that for those of us with more oily skin it can be a pain to use, especially when it comes to their stick foundations. 

Let's rewind a couple of years ago when I was an avid user of the stick foundation and loved the finish it provided but I had to stop using it because it would break me out on the edge of my jaw--no bueno!  I recently started using it again hoping that that breakout from years past was a reaction to something else in my routine at that time--not true, it's official, their stick foundation does not work for me. :(  

Fast forward to a few weeks and I was intrigued to see the concealer.  Although, I haven't tried it yet for a look I will be soon as my normal everyday concealer is almost out and I'll need an alternative.  Rest assured that I will come back and report to you with a full review on its performance. And if I don't remind me on Twitter :)  For now, just take a look. 

I purchased the shade in Mahogany which seems like a pretty good much when I need to cover any blemishes and my dark circles.  The texture is uber creamy which makes for easy application.  As you can tell the packaging resembles a lipstick tube, I quite like that because that means I don't have to dig my fingers for any product.  I'm looking at you MAC Studio Finish Concealer!

Let's cross our fingers and hope that this doesn't break me out!  By the way, have you tried this before?  Did you like it?  Tell me in the comments!


  1. I want it...but I don't need anymore concealer lol

  2. LOL @ "dont remind me on twitter." I need a better concealer myself so i look forward to your update!

  3. It matches your complexion good.Since I finished the MAC SFC,I picked up the BR Perfect Blend Concealer. I've been using it for a wk now.So far, its a keeper ;-)

  4. Black Opal is one of the drugstore's best kept secrets. But I have never seen their concealer in the lipstick packaging. Gotta check it out! I love their stick foundation and powders too.

  5. I need to see if I can find this in my area... I want to try their foundation too! Thanks for sharing!
