Zoya Zara

With Europe’s “The Final Countdown” still playing in my head (the song that Zoya’s Facebook comment triggered at the start of their 20,000 fans promo), I present to you all a wonderful light shade that’s a big favorite among Zoya fans. Part of their Flourish Collection, this shade is beautifully named Zara.

This shade is described as “vivid blue-toned light purple with strong golden duochrome shimmer.” Duochrome isn’t as strong as other duochrome shades they have, but it is evident both in and out of the bottle. The golden shimmer shines through stronger under sunlight. Formula is on the thin side, but application was smooth. Shown is 2 generous coats with no top coat.

See the golden duochrome shimmer? It’s quite stunning. I hope this swatch isn’t going to make the last day of Zoya’s Facebook promo much harder on any of you out there still deciding on what your 3 shades will be. 🙂
