I must admit that I’m a bit of a lip gloss junkie and although I’ve tried many brands I’ve never tried Black Opal. Well I recently received a few press samples of Black Opal – Color Splurge and decided to give them a try.
I must say that I was so pleasantly surprised. The quality of these lip glosses rivals many department store and luxury brands. Let’s take a look at the swatches:
The Patent Color Splurge lip glosses are nicely pigmented giving a rich, true color. What you see in the tube is what you get when you apply it. The Lustre glosses are sheer with a glistening iridescence that I would wear on a night out due to the glitter. I found the lustre glosses had a nice color payoff as well, although the shade “Bliss” is quite sheer. All of the glosses are moisturizing with vitamins A and C and applied smoothly. Overall, I was very impressed with this brand. The glosses are available in several flattering shades which are very affordable at $6.95 a tube.
