Za true white two way foundation (refill) shade 22

Hello beauties,

After using za whitening day cream I visited there counter in Indian beauty center (Mumbai ) for night cream and that’s when I saw this compact/foundation. I dint really need but got it just the same as I was really intrigued by it.
Just like inglot refills we have to buy the refill and its case separately. I only got the refill without its outer case as the plastic packing of the foundation is pretty sturdy and durable. i got shade 22 coz i have yellow undertones and its a perfect fit...

Price: just the refill is for 550 INR  Case + refill is around 900 INR

Quantity: 9 g  

Ingredients and Product description:


It comes in simple plastic box. Box contains a foundation powder and application sponge. Application sponge is packed in separate plastic which becomes pretty useless after you open it. The foundation case is very sturdy and travel friendly and doesn't open easily in commute.
Texture and coverage: it is excellent. The powder is very silky and fine and soft to touch. It gives medium to full coverage in one application. It is a two way foundation which means that you can apply it with wet sponge for heavier coverage or with dry sponge for medium coverage.


My experience:

My skin is acne prone combination type which tends to be on oilier side in summers. It is a 2 way foundation but I usually apply it over my foundation to extend its wear time. However I have tried applying it with wet sponge just once to check out if it is really two way foundation or not and I was really pleasantly surprise that it was!!!

It went on smoothly with no patchiness or giving cakey effect or feel. Plus it stayed on for around 5-7 hours even in Mumbai’s humidity (at night). As a compact powder it stays on for 4 hours which is really a record for any compact in the sweltering heat and humidity of Mumbai in summers. I’m sure its stay time will increase exponentially in winter and in drier climates. I got shade 22 which is perfect match for my skin tone. It has lot of yellow undertones so will be suitable for Indian beauties; it comes in 5 shade so I’m sure all the ladies will find their perfect match.
It blends very easily and doesn't give white cast or chalky effect but matches perfectly with the skin. It has a mild sweet smell but it vanishes after few minutes of application also the smell is not sickling sweet but very pleasant which will mostly not bother any ones sensitive nose.

Also it doesn't easily transfer on your cell phones or shirt collars. It is a wonderful product for ladies with oily skin or oily t zone as it controls the shine very effectively and gives a matte look also it doesn't require frequent touch ups. Dry skinned ladies can use it with moisturizer underneath. I have a huge acne problem and most of the products don’t suit me but this one dint cause any breakout or even mild acne problems for me. Yay!!! Also it has SPF 20 PA++ which mean one really doesn't require sunscreen underneath.

Only thing that I dint like is the applicator. It is not totally useless but not really useful as well. So I mostly just use my powder brush to use it.

Overall I really love this product and at this price it is complete steal away.
