Why we love it
This gorgeous natural compact powder helps avoid shine, by setting, mattifying (but not flattifying!) and balancing our complexions for a smooth and silky finish that lasts all day. Our skin feels comfortable and soft when wearing it and breakout-free too! It’s really (really!) good quality, stays compacted and doesn’t crumble unlike lots of other powders.
We absolutely love all the natural ingredients, and that there’s no testing on animals – neither on the finished products nor the ingredients.
It comes packaged in a unique, varnished bamboo case which is great quality and also comes with a drawstring pouch, helping to protect the case in your makeup bag or making it perfect for gifts too.
Globally the cosmetics and personal-care industry racks up some 120.8bn units of packaging a year. It is nearly all the single-use variety too. By swapping to this refillable alternative by ZAO, you’ll significantly reduce the amount of plastic you’d use in traditional alternatives.
Which shade is right for me?
- 302 Beige Orange, suits those with medium complexions and warm undertones
- 305 Milk, suits those with darker complexions and cool undertones
Instructions for use
Compact powder is essential in your makeup bag to maintain a shine-free, even complexion, thanks to its high capacity to absorb sebum (natural facial oils). For a matt effect, apply the compact powder with the Zao Face Brush. To cover problem areas, use a sponge to apply the compact powder, such as ZAO's natural rubber sponge. In both cases, always choose the same shade to your skin tone and use the product immediately after moisturising. To perfect your complexion over foundation, apply compact powder by choosing a tone lighter your skin tone. For a natural look, use a powder brush; for a 'babydoll' effect, use the sponge.
