It has an SPF of 15 and you get 0.50oz of product which is equal to 14.2g.
I have to give Black Opal props for the packaging since it looks very sleek and feels very sturdy but isn't bulky and is quite a neat fit into a cosmetic pouch or hand bag. It twists up like a lipstick which takes the guess work and the mess out of the application process. You can apply directly to the skin then blend it out with a brush, cosmetic sponge or your fingers. I feel like it is best applied with a damp cosmetic wedge since that illuminates some of the shine caused by the fact that this is a oil based product-which brings me to the point that it may not be ideal for persons with problematic skin types (oily, combination). It may be very commendable for dry skin types since it gives a dewy finish when applied. I suggest however that you moisturize and remove makeup thoroughly after wear so that it does not clog your pores.
In comparison to Black Opal Liquid foundation it is not as pigmented and you will have to build it up to full coverage if you have a lot of skin blemishes or hyper-pigmentation. I strongly advise that you dissist in doing so, instead use a finishing powder with enough pigment to set it so that you get better coverage then compliment it with a setting spray so that you skin does not appear unnaturally matte or dry. You can also get better coverage if you apply with a damp cosmetic sponge or beauty blender.

I have been told that this product oxidizes and yes it does oxidize (change colour with exposure to heat/sunlight). I have also been told that it transfers a great deal and it does-all of this can be helped by priming with milk of magnesia - link and using a good translucent setting powder to set everything - link.
You can also get it in a shade lighter than your actual shade so that when it oxidizes it is not too dark on your skin (only do this if you have to be in the sun and cannot avoid constant contact with sunlight).
