Zoya Lovely

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

Zoya Piaf

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.

Zoya Gie Gie
Gie Gie

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.

Zoya Julie

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.

Zoya Lovely 2
Blu, Neely, Jacqueline

Zoya Blu

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.

Zoya Neely

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.

Zoya Jacqueline

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.

Zoya Piaf and Neely Dots

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.
