Zoya Lovely for spring 2013 features six new shades in a shimmery metallic finish and pastel creme finish.
This collection definitely makes me very eager to get warmer weather, sunshine and singing birds here STAT!
Piaf, Gie Gie, Julie
Piaf is a yellow mustard-esque shimmery metallic. This is definitely not a very common yellow, and happily it works on my skin tone! This had a really nice formula; creamy and good coverage with just two coats. It’s kind of unusual, and my favorite one in this collection.
Gie Gie is a light blush pink shimmery metallic. It’s a very soft and feminine shade and very spring-like. Good formula, just two coats.
Julie is a soft lavender shimmery metallic. Gorgeous shade, I really like this one. It’s also extremely feminine and soft looking. This was three thin coats.
Blu, Neely, Jacqueline
Blu is a very pale pastel blue creme. It’s a very whitened blue. It’s not chalky looking, but it was on the slightly streaky side. It did even out really nicely with three thin coats.
Neely is a pale spring green creme. It’s not mint, much softer than mint. Really a pretty shade, it’s my second favorite one here. This one wasn’t as streaky as Blu, but I used three thin coats to get the coverage I wanted.
Jacqueline is a soft yellow/nude creme with just a very slight hint of shimmer. This was the one I had the most issues with formula-wise. It applied pretty uneven, and even after three thin coats you can see some streaky areas where it didn’t completely cover. It’s is still a nice pale shade though and would probably work great with a white under it.
Then I decided to take my two favorite ones and do dots (of course)! So here is Piaf with Neely on top.
Overall: Good solid spring collection. The shades scream spring, and I like that there are two different finishes. In the case of this collection I prefer the shimmery metallics more than the cremes because the formula is just smoother and creamier with them. I think the most unique shades are Piaf, Julie and Neely.
