Zoya Delight Swatches

I managed to get an entire collection in this past weekend and it just so happens to be from Zoya. I really like these shades a lot as they are very Spring-y and perfect for Easter. In random order, here are swatches for the Zoya Delight Collection.

First up is my favorite, Daisy.

Zoya Daisy

Daisy caught my eye immediately being that it’s a bright yellow shade. This is one of the few yellows I’ve seen done right with a shimmer finish. It is described as “a refreshing lemon merengue yellow metallic with an energizing turquoise metallic flash”. The shimmer looks like it’s a hint of green or silvery green. I find the formula for this really good and it dried pretty fast. Shown is 3 coats with no top coat.

Next we have Lillian.

Zoya Lillian

Lillian is a pastel blue shade that’s a bit light for the Easter theme but works perfectly as a Spring shade. It is described as “a faded aquamarine with a glossy cream finish”. Formula is good and more opaque than I thought. Shown is 2 coats with no top coat.

Then we have Leslie.

Zoya Leslie

Leslie is a pretty purple or lilac shimmer that glows. It has a silvery green shimmer that ends up giving this shade a bit of a duochrome finish. This is described as “a soft spring lavender metallic with an energizing turquoise flash”. Formula is slightly creamier than the others in this collection. Shown is 2 generous coats with no top coat.

Next up is Tiana.

Zoya Tiana

Tiana is the green version of Lillian in color and finish. It is described as “a pistachio gelato green in a glossy cream finish”. I find it to be more sheer than I thought it would be but the formula is self-leveling. Shown is 3 coats with no top coat.

Up next is Rayne.

Zoya Rayne

Rayne is the blue version of Leslie. I am loving the shimmer in this shade. It’s like it has a hint of green in it. It is described as “a dewy, spring blue metallic with an energizing turquoise metallic flash”. Formula is beautiful as with most from this collection. Shown is 2 coats with no top coat.

Last up is Eden.

Zoya Eden

Eden is a bright pink shade that lots of little girls would love in their Easter basket! I love how creamy and glossy this shade looks. It is described as “a classic spring flower pink in a glossy cream finish”. Formula is just like Leslie — really nice and creamy in application. Shown is 2 generous coats with no top coat.

I love all of the shades in this collection. I’m disappointed when companies tend to play it safe and redundant with their Spring collections. The only thing that is possibly redundant in this collection is that there are 2 blues. Maybe they could’ve swapped one for orange but Zoya has several good orange shades already.

    • It’s one of the prettiest yellow shimmers I’ve come across! Usually I prefer yellows in a crème finish, but this one’s a keeper!
