Zoya Flair Collection, Fall 2015

Today I have the second half of the fall collection by Zoya.  Flair consists of six jewel toned liquid metal shades.  First the swatches and then more information at the end.

Tris: a blackened, brushed nickel liquid metal.  Three coats.
Zoya Tris

Cinnamon:  a classic bronze liquid metal, originally designed for Zang Toi NYFW F/W15.  Three coats.
Zoya Cinnamon

Aggie: a gold liquid metal with bronze micro glitter. Sheer enough for layering with one coat or fully opaque in three coats.  Three coats.
Zoya Aggie

Ember: a deep, fiery red liquid metal with enough blue to be wearable for all skin tones.  Two coats.
Zoya Ember

Giada: a purple liquid metal with a hint of fuchsia pearl.  Two coats.
Zoya Giada

Estelle: a blue on blue liquid metal with a blackened base.  Two coats.
Zoya Estelle

The formula on these were okay, definitely thinner than the creams (Zoya Focus, Fall 2015.  I painted thin coats, so many of them looked better with three coats as indicated above.

My opinions of these.  Well, they're alright.  I'm more of a cream kinda gal, so the Focus collection made my heart sing.  These didn't really blow me away.  For example, Aggie looks awful on my skin tone.  I'm a very fair bordering albino complexion and it's severely not flattering.  While I like darker colors and red, Tris and Ember aren't my thing.  I did like Giada and Estelle somewhat.  Will I wear them again?  Probably not.  So, that makes Cinnamon my favorite.  I will wear this again, several times.  I have a cream sweater coat that I plan on pairing this with a lot.  That's going to be a great combination.  Cinnamon also makes me excited for fall.  When I started applying it, No Noggin' popped in my head and I added it to Netflix Instant Que.  (High five to all the moms out there that get that reference).

  2. I'm pretty excited about this collection. The cremes are lovely - but being a creme lover myself, I already have polishes really close to all of those and feel pretty meh about them. I absolutely adore Aggie (which I think looks good with your skin tone) and Cinnamon. The only one I really feel Meh about is Aggie. It reminds me a bit of Claudine, which I have but almost never reach for.

    1. Thanks, Jen and you're right about Tris and Claudine. When I saw Tris that's the first thing that came to my mind.

  3. I love this collection, even though I'm usually a creme girl myself. And I think you make Aggie look good, which is hard for us pale skinned girls to do! Beautiful swatches!

    1. Thanks Polish and Paws! These are great for metallics. They don't show a lot of brush strokes. I'm just not a fan of any metallics other than the basic silver metallic.
