Zoya Tickled Swatches
Hey guys! I’ve been busily catching up with all the summer collections and this one almost slipped right on by! I didn’t think much of these shades at first, in all honesty, but there are a few surprises in there! In random order, here are swatches for Zoya Tickled Collection.
First up is Wendy.
Wendy has a great formula — one of the best in this collection. It is described as “a juicy summer melon, deep enough to flatter a tan but bright enough to stand out”. Formula is leaning a little to the watery side, but it’s really good even with application of thicker coats. Shown is one thicker coat with no top coat.
Next up is Tilda.
Tilda is the green in this group. It is described as “a warm mantis green cream that is a great alternative to a summer lime”. I love the golden undertone in this shade! Formula is good, just like Wendy with the teeniest difference in that it’s a bit thicker and less watery (I almost can’t say it’s watery at all). And just like Wendy, shown is one thicker coat with no top coat.
Next we have Rocha.
I looked at the bottles and Rocha holds a sweet surprise. This shade is packed with micro shimmer that I’ve seen before in other Zoya shades. It is more evident under direct sunlight. It is described as “a classic folly red cream with warm undertones that enhance a summer glow”. Unlike 2 previous shades above, this one isn’t as opaque and will require more than one coat. It is almost a one coater though. Shown is 2 coats with no top coat.
Then we have a shade called Kitridge.
This is actually the last shade in this collection I took photos of, so my skin tone leans very red in these shots. Kitridge is a light pink crème. It is described as “a classic summer bubblegum pink cream”. It has a special note that “this universally flattering (evenly balanced between cool & warm) has enough white to make it pop against a tan”. Formula is on the sheer side compared with the rest in this collection (it is the sheerest of the 6). Shown is 2 coats with no top coat.
Then we have Ling.
Ling is the lone blue in this collection. It is described as “a vibrant royal blue cream that is evenly balanced to flatter most skin tones”. Formula is good for a crème and this shade is pretty opaque. Shown is one generous coat with no top coat.
Lastly, here’s Rooney.
Rooney is a shade I knew I’d like right from the start. This is described as “a mid-range magenta pink cream with balanced undertones to flatter most skin tones”. Just like Ling, this one is almost a one coater as well. I didn’t manage to get a direct sunlight shot with this shade though. Boo. Shown is 2 coats with no top coat.
With the exception of Rocha and Ling, these shades all bear this note online: Due to the florescent pigment used, actual shade and photographic reproduction may differ. They’re bright and very summery. I wish they swapped out a pink for a yellow but I can’t complain really. Overall, another win in my book for Zoya!
