More Pictures of the product
My experience using Za True White Plus 2-Way Foundation
Comes in a stunning chrome silver and is a fingerprint magnet – gorgeously packaged product. It wouldn’t be so beautiful if it were matte. The compact is empty- What makes is speacial is that -it has my name engraved on it. I got the True White Plus 2-Way Foundation refill in shade #22. Refill comes with a sponge too. To fit the refill into the compact. Just peel off the sticker underneath the refill plate, and slot it in!
I use my Real Techniques buffing brush or ELF studio powder brush to apply this. he 4 shades available in India- #22 is the only shade with strong yellow tones to it. However, I still feel the shade range is quite bad considering Indian market.
Now, before writing about my experience using it- Let me confess- I use this not as a foundation- But, as a setting powder. The texture of the product is very soft. no gritty or powdery feel upon application. FOr my NC40 skintone- its a right match. though its a little lighter in the case- It blends and helps eliminate shine on my T Zone area. I don’t believe in any brightening claim – so, not commenting on that. I apply my regular foundation and set it using this compact. It has SPF to it. It gives a light-medium coverage. As I use it as a setting compact powder- the staying power is about 6 hours after which one needs to touchup.
See below, how the swatches look in natural daylight.
And here’s me wearing it on top of Za India Foundation.
- Soft and easy to apply
- Eliminates shine on my T Zone area
- no irritation on skin
- Contains SPF, so good for daytime use. I use this as a setting powder.
- Engraving your name on the case is a great and cute idea 🙂 I love it…never seen any other brands offering this.
- product is budget friendly! Will fit shiseido compact refills too
- Comes with an sponge too! Its of no use to me. I prefer using a brush
- Poor shade selection.
Overall, a budget friendly compact. Helps hide minor flaws. You can opt for this if you are looking for a budget friendly day time compact to set your foundation. If you already have a flawless skin and is below NC40. You might love this as a foundation too. A great gift to your loved ones- the option of engraving name on the compact makes it special.
