Guess what I have today for you? One of Zoya’s new collections for fall 2010 called Wicked. This is a collection of 6 new amazing glittery, metallic colors that I think will knock your socks off! And let me first tell you the hell I went through before swatching these.
I left work at 3:25 to take the company bus to the BART train station, which is what I do every day. I found out that there were no trains running to my side of the Bay though because of an accident. Well it so happens that Mr. VV drove into the city, so he came by the BART station to pick me up. He got there at 3:50. We were stuck in GRIDLOCK traffic all the way home. I got home at 6:50!! So I spent 3 hours and 25 minutes trying to get home. All because of a stupid Giants game that just let out at rush hour. Ridiculous; I have never been in traffic like that. We lierally could have been in Lake Tahoe or Reno in a hotel room relaxing by the time we got home!
So I get home, am starving, but then see I got the Wicked collection delivered. The sun was disappearing, I was in the middle of cooking dinner, yet I swatched! I’m a multi-tasker at heart 🙂 I even stood in the middle of the lawn while the sprinklers were going off to take these pics, so I hope you enjoy them! Bear in mind these were taken at 7:15 so the sun was going down.
The formula on these was really great I didn’t have any issues whatsoever.They were all opaque in two coats.
Edyta is a fern green with multi-colored shimmer. This is totally stunning in person, this pic doesn’t do it justice at all. The green is a deep greyish/green, and all the green, gold and other colored shimmer is just fantastic! LOVE IT and don’t have anything like it.
JulieAnne is a deep royal purple with light purple shimmer. It’s AMAZING. Just the purple base alone is spectacular but then you add all that shimmer and it glows. Really that’s what I love about it is the lit-from-within glow it has!
Karina is a deep garnet red with red and gold shimmer. This is a very pretty color, reminds me of Christmas actually!
Cheryl is a chocolate brown color with bronze shimmer. This is another one that blows me away. I really love brown shimmers, they are some of my favorite colors actually, but this has got to be one of the best I’ve seen. This one also totally glows, it’s just so pretty! I know I am going to be wearing this a lot.
Kym is a red/mauve with gold and red shimmer. It’s really pretty but not a color I personally think I would wear a lot.
Carrie Ann is a bright, warm red with red and gold shimmer. This is a beauty also, I like it a lot!
Overall I think Zoya did an excellent job with this collection. There are a few that I think are total must haves though which are Edyta, JulieAnne and Cheryl. I think the others are nice also, but not quite as unique. One of my favorite things about this collection is that all the colors look like they are glowing.
These should be available now on Zoya’s site!
Ok tell me true, which ones are you drooling over?
