First, just wanted to let you guys know that I added an email subscription option on the sidebar!
As promised, here are the swatches for the True Collection by Zoya. I was so excited to see a Zoya box on my front porch when I got home from work. At first I thought it was my textbook order from Amazon so I took my sweet time getting out of the car. But when I noticed the huge "Zoya" printed on the side of the box I ran out of the car so fast that I forgot to turn off the car! LOL! It felt like I couldn't get the box open fast enough. I hadn't blogged in so long that I forgot how exciting it was to receive new collections for review. So let's get started! As a side note, I like to post Zoya's official description of the color instead of only posting my own take on it. Personally, I feel that Zoya is one of the few companies that has the skill of describing their colors down to a science! What they describe is always what you get!
Cho - Zoya describes this as an opaque yellow-toned light soft peachy beige with a hint of ultra fine silver shimmer. Spot on description! The shimmer is super ultra fine. Very subtle. So subtle that I don't think this picture even captures it enough to do it any justice. But trust me, its there! Application was great. I thought it was going to be super sheer but all you need is 2 coats for full coverage.
Lotus - Zoya describes this as a very soft, dusty blue-toned amethyst purple with colorful shimmer that reflects pink, red and gold. The shimmer in this color is gorgeous! Not so red but not so pink. I wish I had swatched this during the day so I could see it under the sun. Application was great. 2 coats for full coverage.
Overall, I love this collection. Shockingly, a purple has taken the #1 spot for me: Tru. So much prettier on the nail than I thought it was going to be based on what I saw in the bottle. Goes to show you that you can't always rely on what you see in the bottle. Bottles lie! The #2 spot goes to Skylar. I love blue and I love that name! The #3 spot goes to Lotus (love that name too). #4 goes to Bevin. I don't care much for Cho and Farah. But thats only because I'm not a neutral type of girl. With that said, there is no way that you can't find something to like from this collection. It has colors and types that appeal to different likes and preferences. Application for all of them were great. No complaints.
So what do you gals think? Which ones will you be getting?
Also, I will be swatching the Flecks Effect Collection this weekend and posting that first thing Monday morning (if not sooner). So be sure to check back.
