ZAO Compact Foundation meets the requirements of those who want a natural complexion with full coverage. Its creamy and smooth texture makes it easy to apply and smooth into skin, with a mattifying effect to cancel out shiny areas. ZAO Compact Foundation is a true skin care product, containing silica powder, bamboo powder and bamboo rhizome oil, all of which are rich in silica and so regenerate skin.
Coverage: Build-able, from light to strong
Packaged in a unique, varnished bamboo case and attractively presented in a bamboo pouch with drawstring, ZAO makeup is both a beautiful gift and an item to treasure.
This product, as with all ZAO products, is free from talc and parabens (synthetic preservatives), using instead micronised silver as an effective and non-toxic preservative. ZAO does not use nanoparticles in their products, with the micronised silver being larger than nanoparticle size, making ZAO products safe and free from toxic chemical preservatives.
Instructions for use: Easy to apply and smooth into skin, ZAO compact foundation is offered with a round sponge. It is also very convenient for an application with fingers or ZAO's foundation brush.
ZAO Beauty tip: Choose the colour that matches the colour of your skin. Neither too bright nor too dark to avoid contrast with the natural complexion of the neck. For a medium coverage, you can apply directly with fingers. The foundation is applied from the centre to the outside, without forgetting the nose.

Really enjoying the foundation. I bought a tester before purchasing the full size and I'm glad I did. It's a shame there is no option to add/remove the applicator sponge that comes with the foundation. Other than that, I have no qualms! Very smooth and soft finish, and lasts all day!
This is a gorgeous product! Lovely coverage, more natural looking. A lovely dewy finish leaving a sophisticated look. Very pleased.
This is shade for me. I am pale with freckles and this hint of pink tone in foundation is very pleasant for my skin color.Texture is pleasant too,sponge is needed when applying. I tried just with fingers but it's not as good as with sponge. I am giving 4 stars,because coverage is medium.
I got a sample, thanks Goddess for them. Ivory shade is ok for me, but I prefer shade 729 as I have pale skin with freckles. I like creamy,nice texture. Coverage is medium,I would say. I need more time to get used to compact foundation,because I usually use only liquid ones. Apply with sponge,because fingers are not the best ones for this type of foundation
Goes on smoothly with creamy consistency. Perfect colouring for my skin and blends in and hides all imperfections.
I ordered a sample of this in 729: Very Light Pink Ivory. In the container it looked as though it would be too dark but actually it is a really good match for my fair, rather translucent-esque skin. It feels and smells lovely and is long-lasting. I would recommend ordering samples to find the right match for you, but I highly recommend the quality.
This is the only foundation I've used that hasn't caused breakouts to my sensitive, combination skin. It gives a natural finish and is easy to apply and blend into the skin. I highly recommend it.
