Do you want to avoid shine on your face? Go for the powder compact. It sets, mattifies and balances the complexion for a smooth and silky finish. Note that all of our powders are free from talc and nanoparticles.
Instructions for use: Compact powder is an 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 matte 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.
ZAO Beauty Tip: Always remember to dust your eyes before applying mascara and eyeliner, to set your eye makeup and prevent it smudging by the end of a long day. Looking for a darker shade? Go for the mineral cooked powder no. 344 (chocolate) – this is a matt cooked powder that is not only used for a bronzing effect but also as an everyday powder to mattify the full face or as a blush for darker skin.

I received the compact powder re-fill and I am very happy with quality and shade which I was a bit hesitant about, but I found the matching chart quite helpful. I was also very pleased how little packaging is used. This was my first product from Zao and I'm definitely going to get new refill of this product and try the other ones.
Doesn't irritate my sensitive skin. Sets my base without being too powdery. Very skin like finish.
Love the fact that it's roughly half the price for a refill, as I've already got the holder. Thank you so much for allowing me to be environmentally friendly <3
