Zoya Winter 2014 Wishes Holiday Collection5:00 AM
Today I have some swatches of the 2014 Holiday Collection from Zoya for you! It's Called Wishes and it's made up of two shimmers, one cream and three "magical" pixies. The pixies to me are more like the ultra pixie colors than the standard ones. They have large holographic hexes rather than just the standard smaller glitter. I found this to be a pretty solid holiday collection. The black threw me off a little but it's a great time of year for darker shades. So let's check them out!! Pixies are up first!
This one is Imogen, described as a black crystal Magical PixieDust with holographic hex glitter. Pretty straight forward as you can tell. These pixies were all easy to work with and all are swatched with two coats. They also weren't especially lumpy when they dry so while they are textured it's not super noticeable.
Here is Nori, described as a sapphire blue Magical PixieDust with holographic hex glitter. Nori was my favorite of the Pixie's.
Last is Thea, a deep amethyst Magical PixieDust with an orchid flash, packed full of party-ready holographic hex glitter. The description has her as a purple but I found this one to be very pink, more so than just a "flash".
Then we have the shimmers! This one is Haven. These are the standout's to me. I found both to be a touch streaky but it wasn't super noticeable after they dried. The shimmer and depth to them is just gorgeous. Haven is described as a true holiday plum liquid metal with a thin vein of orchid to ensure brilliance. It's just very slightly duo-chrome.
Then there's Prim. You can see that Prim looks a bit streaky here too. Again, this wasn't as noticable in person and in natural light it's not noticeable at all but I wanted to show her in full sun so be forewarned, there IS a bit of streakiness there. It's not unexpected with a metallic shimmer though. Prim is a velvet blue metallic with a full coverage according to Zoya. I felt she was a cornflower blue, she leans just ever so slightly purple. Stunning shade though. Perfect for winter.
Last is Willa. This is a throwaway to me. A straight up cream black. That being said her application is flawless and I've been DYING for Zoya to release a flat cream black so I'm in love with her regardless of how boring she is! Which is your favorite shade?
