Forever 21, American-based fashion retailer, together with Japanese hottest cosmetic brand, ZA has collaborates to show-cast their latest range – Forever 21’s Back to School 2013: Undeclared!’ collection and ZA’s ‘Impact Full Eyes’ Range.
First up, the ZA’s ‘Impact Full Eyes’ Range is developed to allow easy application of eyeshadow to create different looks with just a single palette. This new range features a quad palette with for colors for variety (colors are carefully chosen for easy mix and match) and the pigments are highly blend-ability for easy usage. If you are not very confident with the application of eyeshadow ,not to worry as the new ZA’s ‘Impact Full Eyes’ Range will make it easy for you.
The pigments of the ZA’s ‘Impact Full Eyes’ Range are highly blendable + easy to use as it contains the new pigment technology that will give your eyelids the exact brilliance and brightness as what you see on the palette (true colors). The eyeshadow is so user-friendly as it also contains highlighting Pearls which will shine well on concave surfaces to make eyes brighter and wider at the same time. Lastly, the silky textured pigments will be long-lasting on the eyelids as it is sebum resistant so you can save the hassle of reapplying it from time to time.

Impact Full Eyes Gradation – A combination of similar tones in the palette for easy and effortless blending. The pigments are pearly in texture and extremely fine to help achieve the highly adored wide eyes look.

Here’s some guidelines on how you can create a variety of looks using the ZA’s ‘Impact Full Eyes’ Range!
Following the success of the ZA’s Killer volume Mascara, ZA has introduced another two Mascara made for the busy modern-day women in mind. With 101 tasks to be completed daily and yet we have to ensure that we look good, we will tend to zoom in on products that will shave time off daily routine.
Hence, ZA came out with a multi-tasking mascara that will do double the work with one single wand to cover length, definition and volume. Known as the ZA Perfect Action Mascara, it is available in 2 formulation, Smudge-proof (can be easily removed with warm water) and Waterproof (Super long-lasting).
With the newly launched mascara, it serves as a great multi-tasking product and also works wonders to perk up your eyes.
For those who dislike the process of removing makeup or for people with brittle lashes, ZA Perfect Action Mascara (Smudgeproof) comes with a film type formula that dissolves and slips away from your lashes with just warm water (no tugging is needed!). Before you wash it off, this mascara will length your lashes to give it a falsies effect.
The ZA Perfect Action Mascara (Waterproof) is a must have item for the ultimate busy woman. It gives extreme volume to lashes and curls it up without clumping and separate your lashes for well-defined lashes. Beside giving lashes the volume up false lash effect, the mascara is very long-lasting as it won’t smudge, droop or budge even under ‘extreme condition’
The success behind the Perfect Action Mascara lies with its brush and formulation:
Both mascara contains two types of long stretch fibers (long & short) that will give lashes beautiful lengthening effect along the curves of the lashes.
The wand of both mascaras has a wide volume brush with a Flat Top and Tapered Side for volume + separation effect. The flat top (Volume Effect) will ensure that the lashes are coated evenly with the mascara thus giving it maximum volume. The wide brush will also give a snug fit against the width of the eye to cover all the lashes. The tapered side (Separation Effect) has a comb on the sides of the brush to separate the lashes to give it a wonderful wide-eyed look.
To achieve the optimal effect, first use the flat top of the brush and comb it upwards in a zig zag motion to deposit more mascara + fibers (especially to the roots) for voluminious / lengthening effects. Next, use the tapered side of the brush to comb through lashes to separate it for better definition.
