Welcome to fall 2013 with Zoya Cashmeres and Satins.
This new collection, or rather two collections, feature twelve new shades. Cashmeres features six very fall-like cream shades and Satins features jewel-toned metallics and a gold flake top coat.
Most of these shades had a great full-coverage formula with just two coats. A couple were three-coaters for me. The golden top coat is gorgeous and you only need one coat for major bling.
Channing is a reddish/burnt orange metallic. Very shimmery and glow-y. Excellent coverage with two thin coats.
Mason is a reddish/violet metallic. Ah man, this color is gorgeous! It’s very jewel-like, lit-from-within and sparkly to boot. It’s a little on the more watery side so I used three thin coats here for complete coverage.
Claudine is a deep charcoal grey metallic. The coverage on this one is really thick, I nearly used just one coat. Then I added a way too thick second coat and made it streaky. This isn’t really the polish’s fault, it’s my sloppy application. But you still have to work a little more carefully with it because it is the streakiest one in the collection.
Giovanna is an emerald green metallic. This one is vivid and another great jewel-tone for fall. This was two thin coats.
Neve is a deep sapphire blue metallic with some pink and purple sparkle. It’s definitely a “blurple” shade. So rich and pretty, it’s probably my favorite one. This was two thin coats.
Maria Luisa (over Louise) has a clear base and features warm gold flake glitter. Pretty, perfect for fall, and creates a mess when removing! 😉
Flynn is a camel colored cream. This one starts off rather sheer and a little watery but builds up nicely with three thin coats. I like it because it’s kind of a weird color.
Louise is a deep chocolate brown cream. Looks like melted chocolate doesn’t it? Shiny, rich and lovely with two coats.
Hunter is a deep hunter green cream. I love this shade because I feel like we don’t see a ton of greens in this muted greyish/green color. This was just two coats.
Sailor is a deep muted navy cream. This one, like Hunter, has that greyish toned down look to it which I really like. I don’t have a lot of blue cremes like this. It was two coats.
Livingston is a bright red cream. Nearly a jelly-like finish, it’s a bit sheer and see-through even with three thin coats. It’s SO shiny, bright and cheery though!
Pepper is a brick red cream. Brownish red. I don’t love these types of shades personally, but the polish itself was nice enough and covered in two coats.
Overall: I feel like both of these collections definitely speak to fall with the deep shimmery jewel tones and soft creamy cream shades. Haha, creamy cream. My favorites in terms of originality and just plain awesomeness are Mason, Neve, Flynn and Hunter.
Which of these are you going for?
