ZA Summer 2020 White Protector and Coming Journey Collections

ZA Coming Journey Lipsticks (Limited Edition)
Cosmetic giant Shiseido's drugstore line ZA is best known for its popular foundation and brow products. This year though, they've expanded the True White Protector primer line to include color correcting versions as well as a color-correcting finishing powder.

ZA True White Protector range
Priced at S$15.90 per 35g tube (about 1.2oz), the primer range is formulated with Hyaluronic Acid and vitamins C and E for smoothing antioxidant protection, so they are multi-tasking moisturizers, sunscreens and color correcting primers in one. I do have to say these were more pigmented than I expected as I'm used to tinted or "tone up" primers rubbing out to near-invisibility most of the time. 

This means though, that if you have a medium to deeper skin tone, I would stick with the classic brightening formula or the more universal luminizing pink Glowing Protector as the lavender and mint shades will likely give you an ashy cast.

Again, please remember that like concealers, deeper skintones require corresponding stronger tones of green/purple/orange color correctors to neutralize discolorations appropriately, so do not expect a pale green corrector made for light skins to work well on a deeper complexion. Sadly, Asian brands still only cater to one generic light skin range.

These have a non-greasy light-creme texture typical to Japanese and Korean primers. If you hate the feel of slippery silicone-heavy primers, these are a nice alternative. While they do include an SPF33, PA++ in the formula, I would definitely NOT rely on these as my main sun protection product. A PA rating of ++++ is the gold standard for protection against wrinkle-, pigmentation- and cancer-causing UVA rays.

As for the cute little Color Blend Finishing Powder (S$25.90) compact which contains a blend of all 4 protector shades, this is a nice soft mattifying powder that adequately blurs texture and reduces shine. There is a teeny-tiny trace of pearl (courtesy of the pearlescent pink patches) but the overall effect on a fair to medium-light skin is that of an invisible powder. Hence no swatches from me.

ZA Color Blend Finishing Powder
It's pretty to look at but any "brightening" effect is incredibly subtle unless you really pack the product on, which I don't recommend with ANY powder. You'll just make your face look dusty and cakey, through no fault of the product. 

Again, I do not recommend this for very deep complexions. It's not that this is not wearable, but that you'll need to control the amount you dust on in order to avoid an ashy cast over your face. I'm just not sure it's worth the hassle when there are other translucent or tan-skin appropriate options around.

 As for the limited edition Coming Journey Lipsticks, there are 5 shades available in Singapore at S$19.90 each but do look out for periodical discounts and promotions at Watson's.

These come in 2 textures; Semi Matte and Super Matte. Semi Matte is what I'd call a traditional satin finish. Creamy and opaque, with a low sheen. The Super Mattes are a suede-like powdery texture which is semi-opaque and great for the "blurry lip" look.

I liked the lightweight Super Matte formula a lot, so I wish they had more shades. Currently there are only 2. This pink and a red-orange. Which is a pity since the powdery matte texture is so popular and not something we've seen from ZA, so more people would be curious to try the line if there were more color options. However I understand this is a limited edition capsule collection, so that's probably asking too much.

The Semi Mattes are no slouch either. They look deceptively creamy but the formula has a density to it as well and clings very well to skin. Even though they are not transfer proof, the color does last through drinking and light snacking.

RD460 Semi Matte Orange

PK458 Super Matte Pink

Besides these, ZA also launched Wake Up Morning Primer Masks which are $14.90 per pack of 5. I have not had the time to test these yet so I'm not including a review here!

All in all, I think it's a fun and aesthetically attractive release overall. I'm biased towards the lipsticks simply because they are fun and the formulations are stellar as well.

As for the True White Protectors, the sun protection is too low when compared to similar products like the Skin Aqua Tone Up UV Essences which also come in mint and lavender but rock an SPF50+ PA++++ with photo-stable UVA filters. While the ZA formula is a much better-performing corrective makeup base due to the higher levels of pigments, I personally prioritize the skincare aspect over the color correction, and it's too much of a hassle to layer two products when they're meant to be an all-in-one.

And that's just my take on the new releases!


    Am so happy to testify about a great spell caster that helped me when all hope was lost for me to unite with my ex-girlfriend that I love so much. I had a girlfriend that love me so much but something terrible happen to our relationship one afternoon when her friend that was always trying to get to me was trying to force me to make love to her just because she was been jealous of her friend that i was dating and on the scene my girlfriend just walk in and she thought we had something special doing together, i tried to explain things to her that her friend always do this whenever she is not with me and i always refuse her but i never told her because i did not want the both of them to be enemies to each other but she never believed me. She broke up with me and I tried times without numbers to make her believe me but she never believed me until one day i heard about the DR. EMU and I emailed him and he replied to me so kindly and helped me get back my lovely relationship that was already gone for two months.

  6. Acquisition of a residence permit based on business investment is most suitable for those who wish to establish or develop their business within the European Union, while taking advantage of the benefits of having legal residency within the EU - with all the convenience that it brings in terms of travel. Statistics show that business investment is a less popular way to obtain a residence permit compared to purchasing real estate, however, there are several peculiarities that make this option the best solution for some investors.
