Zoya Focus & Flair Collection

I haven’t posted a press release in a while but this one arrived in my inbox and caught my eye. Here’s what Zoya has for this Fall!

Zoya Focus & Flair Collection

Whoa! Coma to momma! I am digging the metallic shades in that shot!

The creme shades are okay (why are there 2 reds yet again?) but the metallics are the ones I’m looking forward to. While they may all seem like there are existing dupes….it still got me excite and now I’m actually looking forward to what they may bring for the Holiday season now (I know, I know….way too early!)! They’re available for pre-order now at $9 each on their website.


Zoya Island Fun Swatches

Thank goodness it’s the weekend! Does anyone else feel like I do today? I got a lot of stuff done at work today and I’m looking forward to just relaxing while squeezing in a few household chores in between. In random order for today’s post, here are swatches for Zoya Island Fun Collection.

First up is Demetria.

Zoya Demetria

Demetria caught my eye immediately being that it’s a red. Red is still my favorite color to date. This is a beautiful crème shade that’s pretty opaque but still needed more than one coat. It is described as “a vibrant poppy red in a full coverage and densely pigmented cream formula”. It applied very nicely for me. Shown is 2 coats with no top coat.

Next up is Jace.

Zoya Jace

Jace is a nice light green crème shade. This is described as “a modern tropical green in a full coverage formula” and “a green that is more muted than lime and surprisingly wearable”. Formula is good and creamy. It evened out really nicely with the second coat. Shown is 2 generous coats with no top coat.

Then we have Talia.

Zoya Talia

Talia is a bright blue crème that brings me back to my vacation back in April. This is surprisingly my favorite from this collection. It is described as ” a true turquoise in a full coverage, densely pigmented cream formula”. The website also makes a note that this is a stainer and I can attest to that (although I didn’t read that first and wish I had!). Formula is buttery and applied beautifully. Shown is one generous coat with no top coat.

Next up is Nana.

Zoya Nana

Nana is a beautiful fuchsia crème. It is described as “a deep summer fuchsia in a full coverage and densely pigmented cream formula”. Formula is comparable to the other shades in this collection. Shown is 2 coats with no top coat.

Up next is Cecilia.

Zoya Cecilia

Cecilia is one that I’m pretty sure will be popular because it’s a teal. It is described as “a classic teal in a full coverage and densely pigmented cream formula”. This one also has a warning for being a stainer according to the website and I experienced that with this as well. Formula is super creamy that it applied like butter. Shown is 2 coats with no top coat.

Last up is Serenity.

Zoya Serenity

Serenity is a purple crème shade. It is described as “a summer purple in a full coverage and densely pigmented cream formula” and “reminiscent of beautiful blooming irises, a harbinger of summer”. This shade is pretty opaque with a nice formula but I still should’ve used at least 2 coats. Shown is one coat with no top coat.

These shades would work well for the summer and look great on toes especially while you’re in your swimwear!

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 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.

Zoya Easter Basket Promo

Still need a small Easter treat for someone you know? I just saw this very cute Easter Basket promo in my email from Zoya.

Zoya Easter Basket Promo

The boxes it will come in are so cute! It’s very Spring-y and Easter-y! The colors they used in this ad suits Spring and Easter as well. 5 minis for $20 with the boxes to match isn’t a bad price at all.
