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.
Cinnamon: a classic bronze liquid metal, originally designed for Zang Toi NYFW F/W15. Three coats.
Aggie: a gold liquid metal with bronze micro glitter. Sheer enough for layering with one coat or fully opaque in three coats. Three coats.
Ember: a deep, fiery red liquid metal with enough blue to be wearable for all skin tones. Two coats.
Giada: a purple liquid metal with a hint of fuchsia pearl. Two coats.
Estelle: a blue on blue liquid metal with a blackened base. Two coats.
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).
