Zoya Irresistible Summer 2013 Collection: Tinsley

For Summer 2013, in addition to the Pixies, Zoya also introduced a set of 6 cremes - Stunning - and a set of shimmery metallics called the Irresistible collection.

Surprisingly, I was really only interested in one and not surprisingly, it was Tinsley, the rose gold of the crew.

 Let's take a look!

All of the shades, from the photos I have seen, have a similar super golden and bright sheen. Tinsley is the pink tinted polish, and with the rose and gold color mixed together, there is a really sweet rosegold tint to the nail with unbelievable shine!

Out of focus on purpose! See how sparkly it is?

Even without the flash, out of the sunlight, the color is still super vibrant:

The formula required three coats, in my opinion, because it is a thinner formula and it builds up really well. It becomes brighter with every thin layer.

 For me, Zoya's non-cremes, like this one, last longer without chipping while creme polishes seem to chip fairly quickly. I've recently acquired HK Girl Topcoat so maybe that will change!

What do you think of Zoya's Summer 2013 releases? Will you be picking any of these polishes up?

Zoya Sophisticates

The Zoya Sophisticates collection is here! There are two "pearl" shades, two "metallic" shades, and 8 creme shades. Let me show you each one! I am going to lift the description from the site, LOL. #lazyblogger

But first, group shot:


Zoya McKenna: "refined pearl in a soft almond" is the description of this polish. It does have a "pearl" like finish to it, but it is very subtle. Watch those brush strokes though, they can show if you're not careful.


Zoya Tabitha: this is the other "pearl" polish but in a hunter green. I actually liked this shade more than I thought I would! The pearl finish makes it quite unique...but, oh boy, those brush strokes! Two coats shown here.


Zoya Gal: No doubt, this baby is named after Gal Gadot, aka Wonderwoman! I wish they had given her a more powerful color, because this one is lame-o. Zoya describes this as a "smokey, iridescent, peridot gold metallic." Ugly, LOL. My camera didn't like it and…

Lip Slut: F*ck Trump Liquid Lipstick!

Perhaps I will lose a few followers for this, but I am over it. Trump is an awful President. He does not care to unite the country, and, quite the opposite, seeks to divide people from their neighbors and loved ones.

In response to his ridiculous response to the Aug 11-12 events in Charlottesville, Virginia, Lip Slut decided to send some of the proceeds from their now infamous F*ck Trump lipstick to those who suffered.

Honestly, this product has been for sales since November 2016. I didn't buy it then because I hoped (and prayed and hoped and prayed) that, if he were elected, Trump would be great...

So, lemme show ya my new lippie, k?



I wasn't expecting the formula to be great...BUT IT IS!



The color is quite universally flattering, I would think. The formula feels like a Colour Pop matte to me, and the staying powder is great. Win, win!

PS: Fuck Trump!
