Hello lovely reader! Today I am reviewing the new Charming Spring 2017 collection from Zoya.
This collection features 3 cremes and 3 shimmers in mostly pastel shades. It also features 3 complementary lipstick shades.
Let's take a closer look!
This is a pastel lavender creme. This polish had a great formula, and one generous coat may be enough for self-leveling and opacity when applied carefully. Shown are two coats plus top coat.
This is a creme polish in a classic bubble gum pink shade. I found that I needed two coats for self-leveling and full opacity. Shown are two coats plus top coat. NOTE: My camera really disliked this shade and I was not able to fully correct the color on my PC. This shade is a bit darker in person.
This creme is described as an medium amethyst shade. Like Abby, one generous coat may be sufficient for self-leveling and opacity when applied carefully. Shown below are two coats plus top coat.
This is a light blue polish with blue and gold microsparkle (ie, shimmer and micro glass flecks). The Polish is packed with the microsparkles, which makes the formula a bit thick. I found that applying thin layers and waiting at least 5 minutes in between coats worked best for this formula. Shown are two coats plus top coat.
This is cantaloupe green polish packed with green and gold microsparkle. The same was very similar to Amira. Shown are two coats plus top coat.
This is a violet polish with red and blue microsparkle. This one had the best formula out of the three microsparkles, and it self-leveled and became opaque with two easy coats. Shown are two coats plus top coat.
This new lipstick shade featuring a medium wear cream formula. The formula is creamy without being greasy or heavy and glides nicely, even on my chopped lips. I didn't find it to wear for 4-6 hours as the website described, though. Below is a swatch of Violette on my forearm. I have medium tan olive skin, for reference.
Overall, I really love the pastels cremes. I liked the shimmers as well, but I feel like the formula wasn't all there and Zoya Lacey clashes against my skin tone.
Zoya Violette is beautiful and an super easy shade to wear on most skin tones. It has become my go-to lipstick, along with Zoya Paisley.
The polishes retail for $10 US and lipstick retails for $12 US. These items can be purchased at Zoya.com and at beauty retailers nationwide.
