Black Opal

In September of 2019, Black Opal shared that it became officially Black-owned after being acquired by Desiree Rogers (CEO) and Cheryl Mayberry McKissack (president). Despite not initially being Black-owned, the company has dedicated more than 20 years to providing makeup and skin-care products specifically for people of color, especially Black women. The brand currently offers an array of complexion products, a few colorful lipsticks, and enough skin-care goodies to supplement your existing routines.

Star product: The creamy True Color Skin Perfecting Stick Foundation SPF 15 glides like butter onto the skin to cover up dark spots and provide a flawless base for the rest of your makeup. These affordable foundation sticks come in 19 shades that can also be used as concealer and contour to sculpt your face.
