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
Price: The first time, you need to buy the compact case and refill separately. Any subsequent purchases can be just the refill. You can buy the refill alone too (comes in a transparent packaging which you can travel with).
- Compact case: Rs. 400
- Refill: Rs. 550 for 9g (comes with a sponge applicator)
Availability: Most lifestyle stores like NewU, Shoppers Stop, etc.
About ZA True White Plus Two Way Foundation: Virtues of Skincare in Make-Up…Now a Possibility. Get a natural glow with the Benefits of Skincare, and flawless cover with the Finish of Make-up.
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.
Ingredients: Mentioned below 🙂
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.
Pros of ZA True White Plus Two Way Foundation:
- Smooth, finely milled powder
- Blends easily
- Keeps the skin shine-free for upto 3 hours
- Hasn’t broken me out
- Contains SPF, so good for day-time wear
- The packaging is cute!
- You can buy the refill alone, and that way the product is budget friendly! Comes with an applicator too!
Cons of ZA True White Plus Two Way Foundation:
- Contains talc. Some people tend to breakout with it.
- Buuying refill and compact case separately can be a hassle sometimes (unless you own a magnetic palette)
Verdict: ZA True White Plus Two Way Foundation is a good everyday wear compact which offers light to medium coverage depending on how you use it.
