ZOYA - Stunning and Irresistible

**Press Sample**

Hi!!
Today I have for you swatches and review from the Summer Collection from ZOYA, this Collection include six cremes and six metallic shades.

Let's start with the Stunning Collection, six vibrant creme shades with excellent formula and great pigmentation. These were opaque in two easy coats. I used base and top coat for all my swatches below.

Darcy can be best described as a full-coverage, sunny yellow cream. This has hidden shimmer that it's only visible on the bottle.

 Micky is a full-coverage pink/coral cream.

Rocky is a medium creme blue.

Josie can be best described as a full-coverage grassy green cream. 

Yana is a bright Geranium pink cream. 

Thandie can be best described as a full-coverage, citrus orange cream.

Now, these are the six shades from the Irresistible Collection, these have a shinny foil metallic finish.
I've combined each metallic shade with the cremes to show you the contrast between the two finishes.


Kerry is a yellow gold foil metallic.

Amy is an orange foil metallic with gold undertone.

Tinsley is a rose gold foil metallic.

Bobbi is a hot magenta pink foil metallic.

Hazel is a steel blue with silver and green glass flecks.

Rikki is green metallic foil with silver and copper glass flecks.

I love how they look together, I prefer the cremes but the foil metallic shades are very appropriate for summer too.
As always the formula on these were great, they applied smoothly with no issues.
These are available at www.zoya.com and retails for $8 each bottle.

Do you have any favorites from this collection? Do you like the cremes or the foils?

Thank you very much for reading!
