Hello lovely readers! I have Zoya’s Holiday 2020 collection to show you all today! I have to say, this collection really impressed me. The formulas are so spot on, and the overall color palette is very holiday feeling, but also unexpected. Bravo, Zoya! Let’s take a peek!
Lottie: a soft champagne pearl with a hint of glistening shimmer blended in
Swatches show two coats with topcoat. Formula has a bit of squish but applies smooth. I think this might double as a topper, though I’d prefer to wear it alone. This is one that you have to see in person, I love this type of pearly shimmer. You might see a touch of your free edge if you have a prominent one like myself, but I think it’s perfect like that.
Soko: a wintery Poinsettia red cream
Swatches show two coats with topcoat. Formula is crelly like with both a juicy appearance but still very creamy. Last month’s review had a few with this sort of formula and it wasn’t my favorite. This time though, it’s like it has been perfected as this was so satisfying on the brush strokes.
Koley: a ruby pink metallic
Swatches show two coats with topcoat. Formula is creamy and smooth on application.
Beverly: a dark purple-toned red cream
Swatches show two coats with topcoat. Formula is creamy, dense, and strongly self leveling.
Avi: a smoky greige cream with a hint of red-brown
Swatches show one coat with topcoat. Formula is dense, creamy, and strongly self leveling.
Nisha: a deep royal blue-violet metallic
Swatches show two coats with topcoat. This is one of my top picks. It’s very glowy in person.
Brett: a deep charcoal indigo cream
Swatches show one coat with topcoat. Formula is creamy, smooth, and (again) strongly self leveling.
Isti: a wintery steel blue, textured PixieDust with a pop of brilliant royal blue for added vibrancy
Swatches show two coats with Glisten and Glow’s Glitter Grabber and topcoat. I was STOKED to see a new pixie dust, seriously I hope Zoya makes more. This is so lovely and sparkly in person.
Meredith: a twinkling midnight sapphire blue with an icy light blue shimmer
Swatches show two coats with topcoat. Formula is creamy with a bit of squish. This builds up quickly and almost appears like a foil from the larger particle shimmer.
Regina: an alluring dark emerald green metallic
Swatches show two coats with topcoat. Formula is metallic and creamy feeling and easy to build up.
Eunice: a chartreuse metallic green
Swatches show two coats with topcoat. Formula is creamy and smooth. This is one of those very few chartreuses that I think will be universally flattering.
Nico: a celadon-toned pearl with a touch of silver shimmer blended in
Swatches show two coats with topcoat. This is more of a true gold base color, and the shimmer gives a soft sparkle. Reminds me of holiday ornaments.
