Review: Za-Cosmetics True White Plus Two-Way Foundation

Setting your base makeup is really important so as to make sure that your skin would look flawless throughout the day. Since it is the last step in attaining a good base, I am into powder foundations that could give a good coverage and leave a radiant look but should still look natural on me. Good thing I found Za-Cosmetics True White Plus Two-Way Foundation in 21. Just like the Majolica Majorca Skin Remaker Pore Cover, it comes with a case and a refill. I like products that have refills since it can save you more money in the long run. 🙂

There are two regular powder foundation cases of Za-Cosmetics…

for True White Plus Two-Way Foundation

However, when Za-Cosmetics released their limited edition foundation case (designed  by Japanese illustrator, Naho Ogawa), of course, I chose that case over their regular ones. 😉

Who wouldn’t love its cute and super chic design?!? I believe every makeup enthusiast would fix their eyes on this if they see it for the first time. Haha! 😀

On the inside, it has a mirror and two compartments. The left compartment is for the foundation refill and the other one is for the powder sponge included in the refill.

So, this is where you would place the foundation refill and powder sponge in the foundation case.

There is a double-sided adhesive at the back part of the foundation refill pan that you could use to stick it to the case. This is to secure the foundation refill inside the case.

This is how it looks like at the back.

I still prefer using a powder brush over the powder sponge to set my makeup. However, this could come in handy in case of needed retouch wherein you don’t have to bring a separate brush with you.

When I first used this powder foundation, I thought the shade was too light for me. The finish ended up too white for my skin tone. I consulted Arlene (Za-Cosmetics and Majolica Majorca’s beauty consultant at Watsons in SM Makati) regarding my concern. She advised me to lessen the amount of the liquid foundation (Za-Cosmetics True White Plus Liquid Foundation in OC20) that I use. True enough, it did work. Haha! Thanks Arlene! 😉

As for the overall effect, this powder foundation could give a nice and flawless finish. My skin really looked radiant after setting my makeup with this product. It is stated in the product description that this could cover all imperfections on your skin. In my case, it did not totally cover up all the imperfections but it lessened the visibility of the dark spots in my face.

The Za x Naho Ogawa Limited Edition Foundation Case is priced at Php325 while the Za-Cosmetics True White Plus Two-Way Foundation refill is priced at Php545. In my case, I was able to avail of their previous promo which is to buy two foundation refills to get the foundation case for free. Also, I got an additional 10% discount during the Watsons sale so I only paid Php981! 😉

LIKES:

  • cute and chic design details of the foundation case
  • The powder sponge comes in handy for needed retouch.
  • gives a nice and flawless finish
  • lessened the visibility of my skin imperfections
  • has SPF20 and PA++

NEUTRAL TAKE:

  • Don’t put too much liquid foundation so as not make the finish too light for your skin tone.
  • does not totally cover up all skin imperfections

DISLIKES:

None. 😀

There are four available shades of this powder foundation.
