Since the Strawberry Lemon Tart is highly recommended by Kai Ling, decided to give it a try! No regrets as the strawberry lemon tart tastes really fresh without being too sweet and with the extra zest. The crust is flaky and buttery with generous fillings on top! Shiok!
Since 1997 (i was only 14!) , ZA has been a well-loved brand among ladies who love affordable, quality and fuss-free skincare and beauty products.. Throughout the years, ZA has obtained numerous awards and recognition, thanks to the support of many!
In 2013, it will be ZA’s 15th anniversary and to celebrate this special occasion, ZA will be introducing a limited edition foundation case to thank all its supporters.. 🙂
Many thanks to the ZA Team for inviting me to this special occasion! My first encounter with ZA products was during my polytechnic days and ZA’s Groovy Smoovy was my first ZA item! Throughout the years, my ZA makeup + skincare collection grew as i always love how affordable yet effective the products are…
To commemorate this special date, ZA has collaborated with Naho Ogawa to come out with a Limited Edition foundation case! Naho Ogawa is a freelance illustrator born in Tokyo and has graduated from New York’s Parsons School of Design in 1998. Her career began while she was still in college and in 1999, she has worked with Anna Sui on T-shirt designs.. Her other designs appeared in Magazines such as Vogue Italia and Vogue Korea.
The inspiration for the case evolved from a ZA lover and lets call this fan ‘the ZA girl’. She is always full of energy and will always be part of all the hottest parties in town… During her favorite brand’s 15th Birthday, she gathers all her girlfriends for a celebratory session whereby they dress up and paint the town red.
To put her best face forward for this anniversary party and to look perfect in pictures, she has turned to ZA Perfect Fit Concealer for help to conceal imperfections.
ZA Perfect Fit Concealer contains real perfect powder and skin fit prescription which targets imperfections and covers them well while imparting a natural looking finish.. During the party, The ZA girl don’t have to worry about cakey patches because the skin fit prescription will enhance the hold of her makeup and the real perfect powder enables the concealer to fit firmly over skin for long-lasting coverage. Most important of all, the concealer contains the ZA’s signature ingredient, Vitamin E derivative to prevent sebum oxidation and to care for her skin…
After concealing is done, The ZA girl turns to her trusty ZA Perfect Fit Foundation next for ‘base-makeup help’.. One of ZA’s best-selling foundation, the 2 way cake is formulated with water holding collagen and hyaluronic acid to plump her skin with moisture keeping it well hydrated throughout the night. Like the concealer, the foundation also contains poreless powder and oil control powder to keep her face matt and fresh while she parties all night long… Comes with SPF20PA++, it helps to protect her skin from harmful sun-rays when she makes her way home during the day..
Thank you ZA for blessing with the limited edition case and perfect fit 2 way foundation! I have reviewed the foundation in my earlier post and if you are interested to know how it fares, click on this link.. 🙂

Before i go, i have something new from ZA to introduce!! At the end of the day, it is important to remove your makeup before heading to bed so that your skin can breathe.. By practicing healthy hygiene skin will stay healthy and breakouts free.. Moreover, you won’t risk staining your pillow case and will feel more at ease while you sleep with clean skin.. 🙂
