Here is the other half of Zoya's Summer 2015 Collections. This is the Paradise Sun collection and this one is some beautiful metallics! I love these new summer colors!!!
Fully saturated with a gorgeous micronized metallic sheen, these shimmering beauties are much like sunshine sparkling onwater. Meant to be used as an independent color, these shades feature afull-coverage, densely pigmented formula.
Genesis is a crystalline white with a micronized metallic pearl finish. Designed to look like micro-fine diamond dust! I like a good white but I am really not sure of how I like the metallic white. It might take me a little getting used to but overall I was pleased with the performance of this one.
Selene is a true teal with a micronized metallic pearl finish. A unique shade with an aqua fleck that resembles deeper layers of ocean water. It is really more of a teal in person but my pictures turned out with it looking more green than anything. I wish I could have gotten pictures that are more true to color but my camera just wouldn't cooperate.
Oceane is a true turquoise with a micronized metallic pearl finish that reflects the clearest blue ocean waters. This blue is breathtaking! I was completely blown away by this one.
Isa is a deep blue-based purple with a micronized metallic pearl finish and an aqua flash that embodies the beauty of exotic island flowers. This purple is more of a blurple (blue/purple) and I really liked it. Purple is another one of my favorite colors.
Mae is a warm magenta pink with a micronized metallic pearl finish, reminiscent of vibrant Mediterranean flowers. This is one of my favorites from this part of the collection. I always love a good pink!
Aphrodite is a vibrant summer red with a micronized pearl metallic finish and multi-hued flash that brings it to life. I had heard from other bloggers that the label on this one was misspelled so I was curious to see if mine was too. When I got my package and I looked, sure enough the label is misspelled but this one is called Aphrodite. Again, my camera didn't cooperate with the pictures for this one but it is more red in person.
I had no issues with any of these in this collection. The only one that went on a little streaky was Genesis but I think that was just because it was a white. Once I put the second coat on it was all good!! I used 2 coats for all of these and pictures were all taken indoors with artificial lighting. Overall I am very pleased with the performance of all of these in this collection. They had a great formula and all went on pretty smoothly, they weren't thick or goopy. I did not use a topcoat on any of these for my swatch pictures.
These are available at Zoya.com and retail for $9 each. You should be able to get them at select salons and Ulta stores in the near future.
