Zoya Lovely Collection for Spring 2013 Swatches and Review

 Zoya's Spring collection, Lovely, is your typical set of spring colors.  Think easter eggs, flowers, frilly dresses, that sort of thing.  Very subdued, demure, typically 'feminine'/girly delicate spring colors. As usual, it's half cremes, half shimmers.  The colors are:



Zoya Blu.  A light baby blue pastel creme.  Has a distinct white opaque base that makes the color very dense.


 Zoya Gei Gei.  A light warm pink with a good amount of flaky/chunky/irregular-shaped iridescent silver shimmer.


Zoya Jacqueline.  Another dense/opaque white-based creme that's somewhere in between pale custard yellow and sandy light beige.


 Zoya Julie.  A light lilac purple with the same irregular-shaped large silver shimmer as Gei Gei.  Strong blue tones in this one.



Zoya Neely.  A light minty seafoam green pastel creme.  Has a slight warm undertone to it that keeps it from being too blue-green/turquoise and makes it more of a jade-like green.


 Zoya Piaf.  A light golden yellow shimmer.  The same type of shimmer that's in Gei Gei and Julie.  This one makes me think of Marshmallow Peeps!

The formula on these was good.  The shimmers have a thicker texture than the cremes, but they all applied pretty much the same.  I found that I liked all the colors best at three coats, so that's what I'm wearing here.  Dry time is about average.

Nothing new or exciting in this collection.  Like I said, it's your typical spring color collection, very traditional. Not much else to say about it! All of the colors are light, "springy", and delicate, though the creme shades tend to induce lobster claw hands on my fair, cool-toned skin.  All of the colors seem to be geared toward skin with warmer undertones, so if that's what you have, you'll probably find all of these quite flattering on you.

The Zoya Lovely collection is available now on zoya.com.

  1. while all very beautiful colour/finishes, I have to agree that these have all been seen before. I like Jacqueline for its uniquness, but its not really the right shade for me to wear. I have OPI My Vampire Is Buff, which is more flattering (I would guess bc I've never worn Jacqueline)

  2. I just saw these at Ulta and wasn't that impressed (though that might have been due to the lighting). Blu looks really nice.

  4. Not impressed at all by these. Neely is the only one I would consider buying.

  5. Decent (though not unique) collection. At least Zoya included TWO yellows! I have my eye on Piaf...

  10. Have you tried Nails Inc. Feathers Effect Nail Polish? I'm looking at the pictures, and they look really cool, and I'm suspecting they're dense bar glitter, but I'm not sure

  17. I thought they have already used the name Neely, but I love the color. And the pale yellow, that's the perfect yellow for me. I've been looking for a color like that for a whil.

  19. I didn't order any of the spring colors either. I did like the shimmer in Piaf, GeiGei and Julie, but nothing worth jumping over.

    I did order the summer Pixie Dust though, those were super-cute! And I plan on ordering from their new summer collection, "Stunning & Irresistable".
    Stunning is creams (including an emerald/jade color called 'Josie' that I'm really psyched about!) while Irresistable is metallics (this one has a fire-like color called "Amy" that I'm really loving!)

    But the best part (or worst part, depending on if your asking me or my depleting bank account! lol) is that the shades correspond together. They each have 2 pinks, one yellow, one orange, one blue, and one green. They're the same shade, just different finishes. I personlly love a good accent nail and ombre effect, and they'd be perfect for it :)

    I hope you'll be reviewing them! I've become totally dependent on your swatches to see what the colors look like in true form!

    Gotta love my Scrangie swatches! :) lol!
