No. 252 Bamboo
The use of eyeshadows can change your eye by playing with its shape and size. It is the magic that gets your eyes deeper or more sensual depending on the chosen colour combinations. Match your refills to multiply your options.
A velvety texture with a light powdered finish for a sparkling and colourful effect. The bright colours can be used on their own or combined for an intense effect. Its specific texture allows the ZAO cream eyeshadow to transform into a corrector, lipstick or blush on the go, that''s why we also call it Multi Touch.
Packaged in a unique, varnished bamboo case and attractively presented in a cotton pouch with drawstring, ZAO makeup is both a beautiful gift and an item to treasure.
Suitable for all skin types including the most sensitive ones.
Micronised bamboo stem powder: Regenerates the 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. It is therefore necessary to regularly replenish the skin with transcutaneous supplies.
Gingko biloba leaf extract: Antioxidant
An excellent anti-oxidant and skin-repair aid, ginkgo biloba is an exceptional cosmetic ingredient. Thanks to the ginkgo flavonoids it contains, it is a highly effective shield against free radicals, which are responsible for cells ageing.
Organic yerba mate leaf extract: Antioxidant and toning
Yerba mate is used in healing traditions of South America, particularly as an antioxidant due to the high rate of polyphenols contained in it as well as a stimulant due to its caffeine content.
CI77820 Micronised silver powder: Natural preservative
These micro-particles of pure silver are antiseptic (especially on skin and mucous membranes) 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 (except the two lipbalms) contain micro-particles of pure silver (a natural preservative).
The creamy texture allows it to blend naturally with the skin to give a surprisingly powdery finish. This eyeshadow is applied with the finger. Take a small amount and apply it on the eyelid with little pats. Gently soften with a small brush for a more accurate result, especially at the inner corner of the eye. You can apply just one colour on the eyelid, or combine colours as you wish. For a longer lasting effect, apply it as an eyeshadow powder.
Tip: These four products can also be used in many ways other than an eyeshadow, hence the name 'Multi Touch':
• The 251 (copper) can be used as a blushor a long-wearing lipstick because of its texture.
• The 252 (bamboo) is an ideal corrector to cover redness
• The 253 (Amethyst) as 251, can be used as long-lasting lipstick or blush. It also correct yellow tones.
• The 254 (golden bronze) is the ultimate corrector for purple tone with its yellow hue.
