Zoya Focus Swatches

Hey Guys! Happy Tuesday!Hope the week is going by smoothly for you. The cooler weather is definitely here to stay now and I’ve finally broken out my gloves for it. In random order for today’s post, here are swatches for the Zoya Focus Collection.

First up is Janel.

Zoya Janel

Janel is a pretty red crème. It is described as “a deep red cream that has a warm undertone”. Formula is very nice and creamy. Shown is 2 coats with no top coat.

Next up is Charli.

Zoya Charli

Charli is a greyish green crème to me. It is described as “a dusty taupe cream that has a hint of green, but is still a perfect neutral”. It’s very pigmented that I could’ve just used one coat. Shown is 2 coats with no top coat.

Then we have Lidia.

Zoya Lidia

Lidia is a purple crème that makes me think of eggplants. I surprisingly liked this more than I thought I would. It is described as “a rich eggplant cream that has a blackened purple base and just a hint of red to make it more wearable for all skin tones”. It is a pigmented dark shade but not opaque with just one coat. Shown is 2 coats with no top coat.

Next is Desiree.

Zoya Desiree

Desiree is a pretty brown crème that suits Fall very well. This is described as “a classic sable brown cream that has just enough gray to keep it cool in tone”. Formula is smooth and one coat is enough but I used more. Shown is 2 coats with no top coat.

Up next is Sia.

Zoya Sia

Sia is a very pigmented blue crème. It is described as “a true, royal blue cream. Please note: This is a highly pigmented shade”. This one has a warning for being a stainer according to the website. Shown is one coat with no top coat.

This Fall collection is outstanding for Zoya in my opinion. I’ve rarely liked their creme collection for Fall the past few years but this one is the best one yet to me!
