Zoya Matte Velvet Collection

Happy Hump Day!

I have a very unique collection to share with you today, I would even call it a bargain!  I must open by admitting that I've never been much of a matte, sparkle, or glitter girl until this past year; I favor more of a cream and opaque formula.  These little gems took me completely by surprise, I fell in love with how quickly they dried and the gorgeous shades of sparkle they produced.

Zoya Entice Collection Fall 2014

Welcome to Monday!

I thought we'd start off with the Zoya Entice collection for Fall 2014, admittedly these excited me in a way that only cream formula Fall shades can.  Each shade is full of it's own deep, rich, pigmented color that is perfect for Fall.

My favorite of the bunch is Ryan, as I love deep Fall navy's, something about them is just perfect and you can get away with so many variations of the shade.  A few other navy's in my collection are: Essie's After school boy blazerL'Oreal's Jet set to ParisEssie's Bobbing for Baubles.  Ryan sets itself apart with being it's own deep blue shade that doesn't pull black at all.  I had some staining on the nails when removing but the color is so beautiful that it's worth it.  Nyssa is a creamy light milk chocolate that fits perfectly with Zoya's Spencer, ChanelleFlynn, and Louise.  Claire is a deep wine Merlot shade and I had a few issues with sheer patches, which you can see in the picture.  Geneviev is a beautiful gray shade that pulls blue and is the non glitter version of Zoya's Yuna, it applied beautifully and I really enjoyed wearing it on my nails; a deeper gray version of Essie's Power Clutch. Swatches and Pictures below, Enjoy!

L'Oreal Colour Riche Glossy Balms & Swatches

This post is a continuation from my Rite Aid haul post last week; the latest additions to my collection all swatched together for your viewing pleasure.  I enjoy the color payoff these balms give and the gloss, they are similar to the Cover Girl lip crayons but with much more pigmentation.  I like how they feel comfortable on my lips and I feel they are the perfect step into Fall for someone like me who doesn't wear too many bold, bright, or deep lip colors.  Enjoy!

Zoya Ignite Collection Fall 2014

Happy Monday!

I'd like to share my pictures and swatches from the Zoya Ignite collection for Fall 2014.  In the bottle each of these is a warm Fall color with beautiful fine glitter running throughout.  Each of these has a beautiful golden shimmer that is extremely fine but adds the most perfect Fall touch to each shade. 

First up is Autumn which is a gorgeous burnt orange, it's name is perfect as it reminds me of a my favorite deep orange Fall leaves.  Next is Teigen, a combination of fuschia and plum; I would say this is the pink of the collection and similar to Zoya Jem but deeper in color. India is deeper than Teigen pulling more of a burgundy tone in it's base and a touch of purple shimmer, this is the only shade that I had a little trouble with as the formula was on the thick side.  Sansa is the name I love out of them all, it's the purple of the group and it somehow reminds me of the Solar System in a bottle.  Remy is a beautiful teal blue and this one wowed me with just one coat and it's sparkle.   Last but definitely not least is Yuna, a beautiful gray with that same gold shimmer that sets it apart from any other shade that I own; the base gray reminds me of a lighter blue gray version of Essie's Power Clutch.  You can find these at Ulta now or through the Zoya website as I have linked below. Enjoy!
