I tried ZAO Pearly eye shadow in shade 103 Pearly old pink from ZAO make-up. 103 Pearly old pink is a gorgeous pink shade perfect for making a dramatic pink smokey eyes or just to add a touch of pink to your everyday makeup. I know you are probably thinking: “Pink eye shadow? How can I pull that off?”. Well, let me tell you that it is not as hard as you might think. You can always use it as a base and then add a little bit of black at the outer corner of eyes to tone it down.
ZAO Pearly eye shadow has a great performance, the texture is very soft and silky and it’s very easy to apply. There are 20 pearly shades available and I love every single one of them (from the lightest to the darker shades). All of their products are talc-free, eco-certified, bio, vegan & gluten-free, 100% natural and refillable.
Three of the most important ingredient from ZAO pearly eye shadows are:
- Micronised bamboo stem powder that regenerate epidermis.
A white substance extracted from the nodes of the bamboo. It is mainly composed of pure silica and has been widely used in oriental medicine. Organic silica, which is a component of connective tissue, is present throughout the human body and regenerates the epidermis as it is involved in the synthesis of collagen and elastin. Over time, our capital silica diminishes causing demineralisation and loss of skin elasticity.
- Organic rice powder that softens and matifies skin.
Rice powder is one of the oldest cosmetic ingredients. It has the ability to eliminate fat from the skin without clogging pores by adjusting sebaceous secretion.
- CI77820 micronised silver powder that is a natural preservative.
These micro-particles of pure silver are antiseptic and antibacterial as well, thereby preserving the product and protecting the skin. Microsilver is often used in creams to treat burns. Almost all products in the ZAO range contain micro-particles of pure silver.
