Black Opal, popular makeup brand, now has a new name, BLK/OPL. The brand franchisee in Nigeria, Kudirat Fashola, CEO, Kuddy Cosmetics made this announcement at a brand launch party help at the Lagos Intercontinental Hotel, Victoria Island, in March.
The launch party was put together to celebrate the brand’s transition to a sleeker, more sophisticated look to reach out to the next generation of beauties, featuring bold square compacts, bottles, and tubes that are emblazoned with the BLK/OPL logo. The brand also used the opportunity to introduce the all new true colour ultra-matte foundation powder. This versatile formulation foundation powder can be applied wet or dry and is suitable, for all skin types and its versatile formulation allows for buildable coverage with a matte finish.
Dheshan Naidu a representative of BLK OPL, took us through the transition of the BLK OPL brand through the years and did the honors of introducing the new TRUE COLOR ULTRA MATTE FOUNDATION POWDER with Tolani Artistry, one of the brand ambassadors of BLK OPL in Nigeria on hand to go through a quick demo of how the products work.
10 models with different makeup look put on an amazing display of creativity as they gave a show-stopping catwalk to up-tempo music with Kennis Music’s DJ Butterr on the music deck. The looks were created by the B LK/OPL Nigeria’s official brand ambassadors, Lillian Paul and Tolani Artistry.
On the inspiration behind the looks, Tolani Artistry had this to say, I wanted to showcase the versatility and coverage of the foundation, concealer and powder range. I also paired some of the looks with bold lip colours on the models to illustrate the vibrant colours within the colour splurge lip line. Additionally, I wanted to represent how fantastic the finish of each skin product and powder was especially in the Nigerian climate.
