Black Opal New Product Launch [WIN]

Another beautiful Friday morning in the mother city, the perfect setting for the new look launch of Black Opal cosmetics. (Coming soon – these products will phase into stores from February to June)


The brand has been around since 1994, when three creative forces combined their passion for beauty to create a ground-breaking range specifically for skin of color. Since launching in South Africa in 2008, Black Opal has been a game-changer in the cosmetics market.


This year they have launched their new logo (BLK/OPL) as well as bold, edgy new packaging.

Invisible Oil blocking powder, one of their most well-known products, is still the same trusted formula, but now with an edgier, bolder look.

There were two new products that caught our little ‘ruby-eye’, one was the new Color Splurge Risqué Lipstick, and the other was the Ultra Matte Foundation.

The Color Splurge Risqué Lipstick is a creamy, hydrating formula which glides onto your lips. We were blown away by the color pigment which also nourishes and conditions your lips, (Bonus!) keeping them soft and ultra kissable. This lipstick range is available in a matte and crème finish –  (which we just love!) and comes in 7 beautiful shades.

The second new product to the Black Opal range is the Ultra Matte Foundation. This little power-pack comes in a beautifully modern square design, includes a bigger mirror as well as a separate compartment for the sponge (bye-bye bacteria) as well as air ventilation holes in the sponge compartment to allow air flow. (what more can a girl ask for?)

This new addition foundation comes in 9 shades and has a buildable formula so that you can achieve light cover, medium or full coverage by simply applying a small amount of water to the sponge before application. The make-up artist demonstrated the product on a model (who had no make-up on and an oily skin completion) As she glided the sponge across the model’s face you could instantly see the mattifying affect. This new wonder product (don’t you agree) is suited for all skin types, and has a built in formula which hydrates your skin once applied – but still gives the matte affect.


The new Black Opal range will be in-store and available to purchase around May this year. If you just can’t wait to get your hands on these new goodies then read below how you can WIN a Black Opal goodie bag!
