Hey everyone!

Being oily skinned all round the year, a compact is my most trusted friend! I really cannot leave home without a compact in my purse! Today I am going to review the ZA True White Plus Two Way Foundation for you guys. Read on to know more about this product!

The ZA India PR team sent me a customised case with my name engraved on the case, which is quite cute! Oh, the perks of being a blogger! <3

Packaging: The case is a sturdy white one with a silver flip-top that has a mirror on the inside. There’s a separate section for the compact and the sponge applicator inside. The area under the sponge applicator is perforated, so you need to be careful while travelling.

My take on ZA True White Plus Two Way Foundation: The powder is very finely milled and has a smooth texture. It is best applied with a fluffy powder brush in my experience. Applies well, and keeps my skin matte for around 3 hours at the most. I like how this powder does not clog my pores (yeah, seeing some around the nose lately!) and keeps my skin looking fresh. It gives sheer coverage with a brush, which can be slightly built upon when used with the sponge applicator. It has an SPF of 20 in it, so I avoid wearing it for parties or events where camera flash could be used, since titanium dioxide/ sunscreen agents tend to reflect light and make your skin appear white in pictures. It is a decent option for everyday college/ office wear.

Shade #22 is a yellow-toned powder is a tad light for my medium/ MAC- NC42/ Bobbi Brown- Honey complexion, but it doesn’t look too light on the skin, especially when coupled with the right foundation underneath. #22 is the darkest shade with yellow undertone 😐

As for the brightening claim, I do not personally think a compact can do that, but this one boasts of ‘skincare’ properties, which would be good for the skin on prolonged use.

However, the lack of shade selection (only 4 shades, some have pink undertone too) bothers me a little since the shades seem to be quite light for the average olive-skinned Indian women.
