ZA Skin Beauty Workshop - Unveiling a new Queen in foundation

HM & I attended this ZA introductory workshop where they unveiled the new Queen in foundation! How exciting, isn't it? Knowing that most of us grew up using ZA.
And my first foundation & pressed powder were both from ZA!

And because the consumers have grown up, ZA also decided to have a name change from just ZA to ZA-cosmetics. It's like symbolic to showing how the brand has also grown and matured over the years along with it's faithful fans.

I know there are many fans out there using their current foundation in the blue casing (I'm using it too!):

My review on the blue casing foundation can be found HERE

But fret not. It's not like it's gonna be discontinued or what.
They have simply revamped the whole product and now, it is new and improved foundation. Isn't that cool!?

Presenting the new Queen in foundation:

We got to try it on for ourselves but we had to remove our makeup first.
So they had us try out the Cleansemax MU remover which I already have from the previous Glow Magazine review buy yet to use.

You could either rinse it off or just clean off with tissue or cotton pads.
Surprisingly, it left my skin feeling soft after that. Not what I had expected out of a makeup remover.

Next, we got to try their ZA Dewy Effect Lotion & Emulsion.
I personally bought the ZA Dewy Effect Creamy Gel but have yet to start on that too.
(Urghhh... I'm a skincare hoarder and you can read all about it HERE) I also have the trial sized for the above two of which I hope to finish sampling before I can blog about it.

By the way, did you know that the emulsion was for day use while the creamy gel was more for night usage? No?? Haha, well, I didn't have a clue either but you check my previous blog post on that too over HERE

OK, enough of side-tracking and back to the foundation...
Personally, I find it more natural-looking then the previous one. It goes on smoothly just like the blue one. However, if you have marks to conceal, you may wanna cover then use the ZA concealer before applying the powder. Because I think the coverage is not that heavy; hence, as mentioned, it gives a very natural finish.

I think the ZA concealer is really good; it's reasonably-priced, handy and works well for me! You can check out my review HERE In fact, I bought it after trying it out at a ZA workshop!

As you can see below, the new foundation will still have the same 8 shades to pick from. I'm like an in between shade #21 and #22. #22 is alil too dark for me while #21 may be alil light but I took #21 anyway. I rather look slightly fairer than darker.
It makes no sense to have a darker face than neck, right?

On top of the skin-loving properties that the previous foundation had like the SPF20 PA++, vitamin E etc... This one boasts of newly-added properties!

I had gotten the following information from ZA cosmetic's Facebook page.

1) Luminous Powder

A plate-like powder that helps to reflect light from your skin at all angles, just like a mirror! The result: Radiant, glowing skin!

2) Poreless Powder

Aspherically-shaped powder to instantly smoothen uneven areas and open pores for a smooth and flawless complexion!

3) Hyaluronic Acid

A strong moisturising ingredient to plump up skin and keep it hydrated. (A well-hydrated skin is key to a successful base makeup!)luminous powder.

Anyway, if you can't wait to get your hands on this new foundation.
It'll be launched in Watsons islandwide on 25th Feb 2010.
So do remember to mark your calendar!

Retail prices as follows:

Skin Beauty 2-way foundation case : $9.90
Skin Beauty 2-way foundation refill: $20.50

Yup, instead of selling the case with the refill included as previously.
They are now selling the case and refill separately.

Oops and I forgot to mention that we each got to bring home one to try out in this ultra funky hot pink pouch!
