Zoya True Swatches
Today’s post features swatches from one of Zoya’s latest collection, True. This 6-piece collection has some great and not so great shades according to my taste. I’ll be showing the swatches according to the order of the press release.
First up is Cho.
When I think of the name Cho, I think of the character Cho Chang from the Harry Potter series and this shade doesn’t describe her to me. It just doesn’t look like a Cho really, but the slight shimmer in this was a pleasant surprise. I enjoyed it so much that even when the clouds moved in to block the sunlight when taking pictures didn’t bother me at all. Formula was pleasant to work with. Shown is 2 coats with no top coat.
Next up is Farah.
Described as a “full coverage, latte beige cream”, I like Farah the least from all 6 in this collection. It’s very plain and I’m not a huge fan of nude shades in general. And this doesn’t have that shimmer Cho has! This one behaved relatively well during application. Shown is 2 coats with no top coat.
Then we have Bevin.
I’ve never met a Bevin yet, but the name makes me think of a guy rather than a girl. But there are a lot of names like that these days. This shade is not one of my favorites from this collection and formula was a bit trickier to work with for me, at least compared to all 5 other shades. Shown is 2 coats with no top coat.
Next up is my favorite in the collection, Skylar.
O HAI! Wow! What a beauty! I am absolutely head over heels in love with this shade! Now we’re talking Zoya! This shade is described as a “full coverage, silvered slate blue metallic” and that’s pretty close. The finish is quite mesmerizing really. Skykar is a blue shade with silver shimmer. Simply gorgeous. Formula was great and self-leveling. Any patchy spots evened out with the second coat. Shown is 2 coats with no top coat.
Then we have a shade called Tru.
Tru is described as a “full coverage, gilded purple orchid metallic” and “orchid” is definitely the perfect word to describe this shade. Tru is vibrant and a very feminine shade. The shimmer in it is like reddish gold. This one’s self-leveling too during application. Shown is 2 coats with no top coat.
Last, we have Lotus.
I find Lotus to be the dusty version of Tru. I don’t like it as much simply for the fact that the shimmer is less visible and it’s smokier. I like my shimmers really visible or else what’s the point? It’s a muted purple with shimmer that looks pink and shows up better under sunlight. Formula is good to work with. Shown is 2 coats with no top coat.
Not bad overall. If I had to pick 2, it’d be Sylar and Tru. Which ones are you guys getting?
