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 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.
ZAO Beauty Tip: Always remember to dust your eyes before applying mascara and eyeliner, to set your eye makeup and prevent it smudging after 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.

Gorgeous case and the powder gives good coverage and finish. Doesn't get cakey or dry.
The 'colour' is perfect for my very pale skin. It does have a silky feel and improves the look of my wrinkly skin. The magnetic compact is great and you can even fit a small 'touch up' pad in the lid but the powder is long-lasting and I have found no need to replenish it. I am pleased I just need a refill next time. This will be the powder I stick to after a long search.
This powder is perfect. Just the right shade, and feels silky smooth. It goes on brilliantly, and doesn’t clump or cake through the day. It finishes off my look, and I love that it has such beautiful packaging too.
This is such a lovely powder and the case is very good quality. It’s perfect for moving towards a plastic free make up routine!
I am over the moon with this face powder, my first Zao purchase in my quest to go as plastic free as possible. I am so happy I have subsequently bought the eyebrow powder, blusher and mascara. All of them are lovely. The bamboo cases are such good quality and are so beautifully made and also come with a a little drawstring pouch which will help to protect the casing when in my makeup bag. I was a little worried about which shade to buy as it was an online purchase. I just followed the advice on the Zao website. I am fair haired and fair skinned and would normally use a translucent powder from a mid price range UK brand. (My powder compact normally costs me £12). The powder I ordered is a perfect shade for me, very similar to the translucent one I usually order. The Zao compact is obviously more expensive than I would normally pay but for me so worth it to make this initial outlay as I know I will not be throwing anything away and when I buy the refill at £10 it is cheaper than my usual product so happy days! I feel like I have bought a beautiful, quality product and it does just the job for me. So happy I found this range. Two wishes that would make it even more perfect: 1) as the compact is going to be reused again and again I would have loved it if a mirror could have been in the lid which you often find with a compact. I think this would be a really handy addition to the product. 2) I wish I could buy this range in shops rather than online to try and reduce my carbon footprint
Good quality, stays compacted and doesn’t crumble like most other powders. Nice coverage in a great natural tone. Would definite buy again.
Very happy with this powder.Great texture, environmentally friendly packaging, ingredients that are good for skin,suitable for vegans and most importantly -cruelty free....what else I can ask for? Will be buying again.
A really fantastic product & the packaging is so beautiful.
Applies really well (I use a traditional round applicator) and touches up during the day
