Hi I got this in hope of a foundation that evened out my skin tone, made it look brighter and controlled oil over my moisturizer.I got this on discount- there was a limited edition one for the 2-way true white version and it came in this gorgeous silver packaging.It goes on smoothly, I didn't have a kabuki at the time so i'm not sure how that would have went- but I did use the sponge and it went okay. I liked it better wet because it just felt a bit fresher. It looks okay but after a while the powder settles into your poors and makes them look bigger than ever, also it feels a bit heavy (possibly due to its heavy coverage) and begins to look cakey after a few hours.Also, I wore this for about a wekk and I think it may have clogged my pores or something because I got several break outs- but it might have just been my period or something so I'm not going to put all the blame on this product.The one good thing though is the SPF which is fantabulous, although not entirely reliable because powder comes off really quickly but its always nice to have an extra layer. It is also fairly cheap.Definitely not repurchasing

My first foundation and it felt great when i first used it. Nice coverage and reasonable price. However i would recommend a better brand if you have the cash. Every cents does counts.

This is 1 of my fave drugstore brand's compact powder. It got good coverage and my t-zone shine only after few hours. It's quite lasting! BUT if piled up too much, it will look cakey!

Used ZA 2-way for few years (since i started putting makeup) until i changed to another brand recently.And i would say that it gives good coverage, powder is very fine, affordable and has many shades to choose from. However i realise that it kinda oxidises on my oily skin and make me look tad darker at the end of the day. It also doesn't control oil that well (have to blot at least twice a day) so i need something that has better oil control.

i felt this is just okay.i know there are many raves.but to me,coverage is decent but tends to cake up after sometime.it can be used wet for heavier coverage or if you prefer a sheer look,use your powder brush to sweep on this 2 way cake.

This is an okay product. It provides decent, matte coverage, and the sponge that comes with it is pretty good. I love the packaging, it is a nice blue colour, it is sturdy, and it doesn't look old even after years of owning it.However, I noticed that I looked horrendous in photos with flash when I was using this. My face was so white in photos, like I used the wrong shade of foundation in large quantities even though I looked okay in person. I also didn't like it because it was too matte. I prefer foundations with a natural, dewy finish. I still use this around my eyes after concealer though. My circles need that much coverage.

I thought i should give this product a try since there have been many good reviews out there about this 2waycake and since my silkygirl's 2way cake is almost reaching the bottom.so i got this and the refill pack back as it's on promotion.Well this foundation provides rather medium coverage i'd say. but it'll turn cakey after awhile. i think it doesn't suit those with dry skin because it really turns flaky and cakey on me unless u moisturise and prime it well. it oxidizes slightly on me and also i'm suspecting this foundation actually clogged up my pores!!!You see, my skin seldom breakout on me and after using this foundation for one day, my skin started breaking out on the 3rd day. 2 pimples!! And my blackheads on the nose started to increase tremendously. .

This foundation comes with its own reputation, since it keeps getting voted best foundation of the year by local beauty mags. I do like it because it covers very well, even with a dry sponge, and the sponge does not die before you finish the powder foundation, Also, I like the fact that the powder is very fine, and is quite smooth, and is good value for money. However, I use this over moisturizer and foundation so it can end up looking quite cakey on me, which is the largest gripe I have with it, and quite a major one too. I mean, who likes cakey skin!? I have found liquid foundation to look more natural, but it's so much more convenient to use a powder foundation.Would probably rebuy, but would like to try other brands before rebuying first.

I've been using this ever since I started applying make-up. So I'd say, 6 or 7 years now? I haven't tried any other 2-way so I can't compare.But it's great for me. It covers well, & it makes my skin looks smooth. I have large pores but the 2-way covers that well.I usually use it dry, & it's good enough. Although my face does get oily after like 3 or 4 hours, I would usually blot with tissue.It doesn't oxidise as much, so it's really value for money!Also, ZA keeps coming up with limited edition casings. So far, I've had the usual blue, the sparkly pink, the sparkly purple, the squarish green one with flowers, & I just bought a new one today!It's gold, & comes with gems for you to stick on. Gorgeous.
