Translucent Powder for WOC- Black Opal Invisible Oil blocking powder

I have been on the hunt for a translucent powder that is not white for a while. I have tried the ELF HD powder which is good but if you use the slightest bit too much will leave you with a ghostly white cast.
Black Opal is a cosmetic brand made with women of color in mind. This translucent powder is a dark beige color and does not leave a white cast on the skin. It also doubles as a good oil control powder and does not build up on the skin.
I highly recommend this product for all WOC looking for a good setting powder and any MUAs that have culturally diverse clientele.
It's a bargain at £6.99 for 28g of product!

What are your thoughts on translucent powders?
Have you tried this one?
