Conceal Dark Circles with the Black Opal Even True Conceal & Brighten Under Eye Concealer

Black Opal Even True Under Eye Concealer Tan

Black Opal recently released a brand new foundation as well as a concealer in the Even True line. I am always on the hunt for the perfect product to brighten my under eye area and conceal my bags so I quickly grabbed the concealer when I spotted it to give it a try.



The Black Opal Even True Conceal & Brighten Under Eye Concealer is formulated to help conceal and brighten the under eye area. The metal rollerball applicator is supposed to aid in depuffing and refreshing the eye area. The formula is very lightweight and oil free, hypoallergenic, paraben-free and fragrance-free. To use the concealer you press down on the rollor ball, gently squeeze out the concealer and roll it under your eye to conceal dark circles, fine lines and wrinkles. It comes in 6 shades, I decided on the shade Tan since the next deepest shade seemed to be an exact match for my skin tone and I wanted a shade lighter to aid in brightening my under eye area.

The concealer applies smooth, blends well and dries down to a semi-matte finish. The formula is non -drying which is perfect for the under eye area. The roller ball feels cool and gentle on the skin and actually does feel really refreshing.

The shade in Tan is just a little too light and too yellow for my complexion so I have to alter the way I generally use under eye concealer. To make this work, I apply it under my eye and blend it using my ring finger. I then apply my foundation and blend the edges out into my foundation. Then I apply a light layer of  MAC Studio Finish Concealer in NW45 over the Even True Concealer and blend it out and finish off by setting the area with Ben Nye Banana Powder. This process helps the concealer to match my skin better while still brightening my under eye area. This is the finished result…



Overall I really like this concealer I just wish that it matched my skin tone better. The next shade up is Beautiful Bronze and that’s the shade that I usually use to match my skin tone. There needs to be a shade in between these two shades but I won’t complain too much since I found a way to make it work.

The Black Opal Even True Conceal & Brighten Under Eye Concealer retails at $8.95 and can be purchased at a drugstore near you that carries the brand, or online at Black Opal.

The product(s) in this post was purchased with my own money.  See my Disclosure page for additional information.

When I’m not hunting down the latest and greatest beauty products, beating a face or lacing a do, you can find me roaming the streets of NYC in my stilettos looking for the next best restaurant. Or in the kitchen trying to outdo myself from the last time.

    It’s been a long time since i’ve tried Black Opal, but I’d give this concealer a shot! Love your lip color, too.

    I hear so many positives about Black Opal all of the time, but I have only tried them once. This looks like a product I would definitely be willing to try. In fact, the Tan might fit me. It looks like a nice product though, especially if you are wanting to find some great drugstore products.
