Zoya Touch Collection includes three nude shades: Minka (latte beige cream with a metallic kiss), Shay (desert rose sand beige cream with a metallic kiss), and Pandora (mauve beige cream with a metallic kiss).
All three were surprisingly pigmented–Zoya really meant it when they said these were full coverage, because these were nearly opaque in one coat, but I used two for the swatches. I typically get a week’s worth of wear out of Zoya’s formula. The formula on these was on the thicker side, though, so more patience was required than I anticipated, which resulted in messier swatches than I’d like, because it didn’t flow as nicely as it could (my carpal tunnel has been acting up, so my hands are really shaky lately).
Zoya Nail Polish presents 3 new, full coverage nude creams – softly kissed with a bit of metallic to make them ultra wearable. Zoya is the new color of fashion… The Zoya TOUCH collection was designed to recreate the custom looks developed for and inspired by the runways of New York Fashion Week – Spring/Summer and Fall/Winter 2011 collections.
availability: Zoya is taking pre-orders May 25th through May 31st, shipping June 1st, 2011
Wet ‘n’ Wild Sweet As Candy Eyeshadow Trio ($2.99 for 0.12 oz.) is like a palette of Neopolitan ice cream! There is a bright, warm white with a metallic sheen; medium-dark chocolate brown with a metallic sheen; and berry-tinged pink with subtle yellow undertones with a metallic sheen. I found all three shades to have a higher level of sheen, more so than the typical frost.
my thoughts on the formula: Color Icon Eyeshadows are definitely some of the best eyeshadows you’ll find in the drugstore, and this trio is well-pigmented, smooth to the touch, and the colors themselves performed well enough in a wear test, though there was some minor but noticeable fading after eight hours. These seem to work best directly over a base, rather than layered on top of each other–like I layered the eyelid shade over the crease shade, and I felt like I had to pack more of it on to get it to really show.
