ZA Full Eyes Impact Groovy in BL 731 | Witty

If BL 731 is a girl, I bet she will be a happy-go-lucky kind of girl. Just take a look at it's uber cute pastel colors

Agar penulisan ini lebih ekspresif, maka untuk verdict kali ini saya akan menggunakan Bahasa Indonesia EYD. Jarang sekali saya membeli eyeshadow dengan spektrum warna yang dingin aka. cool spectrum karena tone kulit saya ini cenderung 'hangat' <<<bakpao donk :( >>> sehingga kurang cocok dengan warna dingin seperti Biru, Ungu, etc yang membuat wajah saya terlihat sembap dll. Namun, kali ini Saya mencoba untuk menantang diri saya sendiri dengan mencoba tone dingin pada mata. Kali ini pilihan saya jatuh kepada ZA Full-Impact Eyes Groovy in BL 731 (IDR 142.000,-) yang terdiri dari 4 warna di dalamnya: 1. Frosty Baby-Blue with Shimmer; 2. Soft Pink with Shimmer; 3. Frosty Mint Green with shimmer; and 4. Glisten Navy with Shimmer.

Merupakan salah satu pallete dari rangkaian produk ZA Full-Impact Eyes Groovy yang cenderung memiliki rangkaian warna yang saling kontras satu sama lain namun terlihat harmonis saat dipadu padankan dengan 1 rangkaian warna lain untuk beragam variasi. Pallete ini memiliki tekstur eyeshadow yang powdery tapi tidak meninggalkan banyak bubuk yang berjatuhan disekitarnya. Lebih shimmering dan glisten dari Gradation series dengan intensitas glitter yang sedang-berat namun diimbangin dengan warna yang cenderung tipis aka sheer. 

Dari segi kemasan, Groovy series memiliki pan atau wadah yang berbeda dari Gradation; berbentuk asymmetrical quarterly-round atau seperempat lingkaran yang asimetris (waduh, saya juga bingung membahasakannya) dengan wadah yang lebih kecil untuk warna yang lebih gelap (Navy). Bergaya neo-retro dengan casing lacquer berwarna Hitam dan disertai sponge hitam didalamnya. Tidak ada kaca, namun penutup depannya memiliki plastik tembus pandang sehingga kita dapat mudah melihat rangkaian warna didalamnya. Kemasannya cukup ringan dan compact sehingga mudah dibawa kemana-mana dengan isi bersih 3gr. Buatan China; errr lebih tepatnya Taiwan.

Formulanya cenderung tahan lama namun saya lebih memilih menggunakannya sebatas lipatan mata saya atau sebagai eyeliner untuk mengurangi kehebohan glitter bubuknya. Acapkali untuk tekstur eyeshadow seperti ini lebih baik menggunakan Rias Dasar atau Eye Primer untuk mencegah glitternya bertaburan kemana-mana dan agar warnanya lebih keluar. Saya pribadi lebih suka menggunakan jari tangan karena kehangatan jari tangan membantu membaurkan bubuknya lebih merata ketimbang kuas.Tetapi, yang sangat disayangkan, setelah beberapa kali aplikasi tekstur eye shadow di wadahnya tidak berbentuk seperti kipas lagi -,- (red. gak penting)

My Verdict?
Overall, Groovy Eyes ini memiliki rangkaian warna yang sangat playful; warna di dalamnya sangat ceria namun lembut dengan variasi warna pastel Pink, Baby Blue, Mint dan Navy. Cocok untuk tampilan wajah yang playful, segar atau informal. Untuk tampilan yang lebih formal, Anda dapat mencoba untuk menggunakan 1 warna saja sebagai pengganti eye liner atau aksentuasi.

Groovy series ini sangat cocok untuk tampilan wajah saat date atau hang-out dengan teman; namun tidak mengurangi kemungkinan untuk tampilan sehari-hari atau profesional di kantor selama anda tepat dan tidak berlebihan mengaplikasikannya karena tekstur glitter cenderung memberikan impresi "santai" dan "heboh" kepada orang yang melihatnya. Total satisfaction dengan packaging, tekstur, warna dan hasil yang memuaskan. Hanya saja rangkaian ini lebih cocok untuk dipadankan dengan Primer atau Liquid Foundation sebagai sahabat setianya. Semoga post kali ini informatif yah :) Have a nice day fellas~

ZA Full-Impact Eyes Gradation PK 271 | Modest

It's another ZA Full-Impact review. Why? Simply because ZA Full-Impact Eyes series got me head over heel. Let's see what's my 2nd baby got, shall we?

My retail therapy instinct led me to buy a massive haul of ZA Make-up products in last ZA workshop; shopping is the best (retail) theraphy, isn't it?. I ended up frivolously bought several items with another Full-Impact Gradation series in PK 271 even though I already had BR 261. Why? I love how ZA Full Impact Eyes Series delivers a demure, buttery pigmentation without being overly decorated. For more details about ZA, you can read it here.

ZA Full-Impact Gradation in PK 271 cost for about IDR 142.000 in ZA counter, but in certain program or occasion they will give you 20% off. The color itself is predominantly in Pink spectrum palette with shimmering dark-Brown as it's dark color. It has 3 gr Net. pan and made in PRC or precisely Taiwan.

Same verdicts with BR 261: ZA Full-Impact Eyes packaging is surprisingly chic and artsy with minimalist L-style pan for each color. There's also application guide in the back side of the outer packaging for easy how-to.

Full-Impact Eyes series Gradation finishing is consistently shimmering and buttery pigmented.

The color for BR271 is warm pan with Pinkish and Brown spectrum. Great option for feminine and girly look. Starting from the upper pan (1): Champagne tone for highlighting; (2) Light Pink for base of your lids or medium shade; (3) Darker Pink for your lids also; and (4) Dark Brown for contouring your crease.

Primer might be needed as Pink color might ends up bluntly blended. However, ZA Full-Impact Gradation is build-able whilst the color consistency is the main formula of the pan that helps you to create gradient shade. It stays for hours (if you put primer in advance, roger that), doesn't leave any fall out and fragrance free formula.

It's kinda tricky if you're going to apply Pink as your shade since Pink sometime means "childish", "too girly" etc, therefore neutral color might applied to counteract the softness of Pink like strong-defined brow, brown lips, or contoured-cheek. Just remember, to balance everything with it's contrast ♥

Too bad that the lightning during the photos shoot was very cloudy and dark so the color didn't deliver nicely. However, ZA totally amazes us with it's new enhanced formula and packaging. It should be listed as must-have item if you are into girly style look or just want to try subtle and modest style for daily or even special occasion ahead ;) I think I have to stop craving other ZA Full-Impact colors since it's all super-duper enchanting! The only thing difference is the color selection, ever since all the formulas and textures has same result. Therefore, I'm going to offer you selection of ZA Full-Impact Eyes reviews from other lovely Beauty Bloggers for your references below. Stay fabulous and be happy, lovely readers~! ;D

ZA Haulage

ZA had been kind enough for inviting me to their Beauty Class and latest product "Collagen Skin Care" release at the Beginning of March.

So, after purchased Full Impact Eyes Gradation for my first trial (read), I got a Beauty Class invitation as a compliment and media to promote their new Collagen skin care series. Nevertheless, I was so stupid to arrive sooo late than the scheduled time. Stupid Me.

Therefore, I ended up cleaning my face in a rush since they already moved to phase 2: Make-up. FYI, the phase was divided into 2 sections: Skin care phase and Make-up phase. For Make-up, Mbak Dian was ultimately guided us from casual to special occasion look. After finished with our quick course, the ZA Sales Lady tried to promote us with 20% off price and latest Perfect Solution skin care series. *LOL*

A glimpse of information: I believe their latest Skin care series is actually already released outside of Indonesia (let's say Thailand). However, this range is a newcomer in Indonesia thus they're trying to promote it through workshop like Beauty Class gathering & promo for Indonesian market target.

But.....again, I was so fool to forget documenting the class session until my bestie, Tar, said: "Why don't you take a photo of the model?" Duh! I was too focusing to catch up the Make-up phase until I forgot to make documentation. Therefore I ended up took snaps of the ZA counter only. Despite the blizzard moment during the Beauty class, I went home with a little goodies that I bought with special 20% off; ZA Full Impact Eyes Gradation & Groovy plus Plumper Lips in Ruby 08. Woohoo! Once again, I'm not affiliated with the brand whatsoever, it's just my personal opinion as an Indonesian Make-up lover. Note: This post is dedicated to my Om Yanto & Tante Maria who had given me supports to broaden my writing skill and creative side of Make-up art. Danke.

Curiosity kills the cat. Check out my photos below for more info.

I should say that ZA Indonesia is less interactive to promote their latest products IMO. When I browsed slightly to neighborhood country, ehem, they even invited special butler to promote their product's release. *__* Indonesia PR should do better, I guess.
