The packaging is perfect; small, efficient, and fits effortlessly into your clutch, pocket or cosmetic bag. What makes it even better is that it holds a little over 11 grams of product versus a bulky Milani compact that holds more than 3 grams less product.
It fits me, it actually fits me, the shades presented here are heavenly honey and carob, I use heavenly honey which is a beige-brown as my highlight shade and I use carob as my actual foundation. When I wear this it does not appear that I am wearing anything and yet my face looks flawless. I often wear it by itself but most times I layer it with powder.
I have had this for over three months and I have barely made a dent because a little really does go a long way. The best part is you can apply it with a brush, a puff, a sponge and the finish will still look beautiful and natural. I suggest you use a flat top brush or dampened cosmetic wedge for an even more flawless finish. You do not need a lot of powder with this foundation so apply powder with a light hand or simply use a translucent powder.
It does not oxidize as other Black Opal foundations are known to do (or maybe it didn't on me because I was mostly in an AC environment or because I used milk of magnesia underneath).
I believe it is ideal for me: the shade is on point, it wears well in hot tropical climates, it stays flawless for up to 18 hours, it is very pigmented; a rich yet super lightweight formula, and gives a totally seamless coverage. It's a concealer and a foundation in one!
It does grease up rather quickly (this can be helped by layering on Philips Milk of Magnesia after you apply your moisturizer).
