Zoya Zenith Winter 2013 6 Polish Review!

Oh, Zoya!

This 6 piece winter collection is on fire!!  I am in love with every shade! Zoya did the most amazing job.  Let's check them out.

Top row: Mosheen, Dream, Payton.  Bottom row: Cassedy, Seraphina, Belinda

First up, the silvers!  Here is Cassedy, described as a "Celestial Pewter Metallic."  This is two coats, no topcoat.  I had no issues at all with application, and dry time was normal if not slightly longer than normal.  The formula is great and there are no visible brush strokes, thank goodness!!

I am going to post a comparison of Claudine, a Fall 2013 Satin polish, and Cassedy in the next couple days.  How similar are they? Stay tuned!

Next, the lighter, almost platinum silver polish, Seraphina.  I love the ultra fine particles in here that really give it some depth.  This is three coats as it is more sheer than Cassedy:

Next up is Belinda, which blends right in with the Satin Collection from Fall 2013. This is two coats of Belinda, no topcoat.  It is a full coverage color and performs really well:

HALO POLISHES!!!!!! You have GOT TO SEE Dream.  It is, literally, a dream polish.  BIG pics for this one.  The site describes it as a "Deep Space" blue, and I do agree, it would make a great background for a galaxy mani:

Next up is Payton, a deep cranberry halo.  Look for a comparison/dupe post of Payton v. Aurora..Do you need both? YES, lol.

And, last but not least, glitter topper Mosheen.  Yes, there are mini bars, but the minis are pretty easy to work with and adorable.  My favorite combo was Seraphina topped with Mosheen, two coats of each, no topcoat shown:

This is two coats of Mosheen over black:

Aren't these just gorgeous?!!? My favorite, by far and away, is:

DREAM!!  Oooh, love, love, love this polish!  After I finished swatching, I went back and put this on to wear.  These polishes are available at Zoya.com and will be released October 1.

Thanks for stopping by!

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!

Why? Not only are they 5-free, but every year they do an "earth day" promo, where you can purchase Zoya polish at half price - IF you promise to send them back old bottles of polish to be recycled properly by Zoya.  You can also donate your polishes to a local charity and it still counts as part of their promotion.

Here are the details:
