Swatch Party Friday! | Black Opal Eyeshadows

Hey, it’s payday, and you’re looking to treat yourself after a long week of not flipping every document on your work desk and throwing the computer out of the window. Of course, that treat is going to be makeup (what else would it be), but what do you choose?

Swatch Party Fridays are here to save the day! After watching ThatGirlShaeXO perform dozens (if not hundreds) of live swatches on her face it inspired me to do the same all in the name of helping you find that next holy grail item.

Every week I’ll swatch a product on my arm and respective application site (minus glitters because, at the end of the day, I love myself too much to do that to my face). I hope this growing swatch catalog of my own personal collection will help you decide if it’s meant to have a home in your check out basket.

After all, what better way to celebrate the weekend than with makeup? I’ll wait…

Black Opal

Black Opal is a black owned beauty brand who specialize in cosmetics geared towards people of color. Now, as you can see, I am decidedly NOT a woman of color…however, I’ve found cosmetic brands that have melanin on the mind kick up the pigment to such jaw dropping levels in order to show up on deeper skin. Let’s face it, we love ourselves some bold pigment here at BackPorchPoet. Good makeup is good makeup, regardless of the target audience.

I received these shades at a makeup convention earlier in the year so they are not available individually, however, if you search for the names of these shades you will be able to find the respective palettes they belong to!

Eyeshadow Palettes range from $4-$9USD on the Black Opal Website.
