Zoya Focus Collection - Fall 2015

*Press Sample*

Hey y'all!  Today I have swatches of the Fall collection named Focus.  This half of the releases for this season are all cream finishes.  Super easy to apply and opaque in 1-2 coats.  As usual, I'll have the other collection up in a day or two, but for now lets get to the pics and info.

For all of these I applied 2 coats along with top coat.

Janel - Can be best described as a deep red cream that has a warm undertone.  I noted this as kind of a cranberry cream.  It's great for fall and to transition into the winter season.  Who am I kidding?  This shade is great year round.

Charli - Can be best described as a dusty taupe cream that has a hint of green.  I legit wrote down "medium gray cream with a slight green tinge".

Sia - Can be best described as a true, royal blue cream.  I noted this as being like a cobalt/royal blue.  I can't actually pick a fav, for once, but this is right up there on the top. I didn't experience any staining, but because of this being a highly pigmented blue Zoya does suggest using a base coat.  I'd suggest doubling up on a base coat.

Desiree - Can be best described as a classic sable brown cream that has just enough gray to keep it a cool tone.  To me this is slightly darker and more chocolate-y than sable, or at least the sable that I found when using Google for paint images of that shade.

Lidia - Can be best described as a rich eggplant cream that has a blackened purple base.  Pretty much what I wrote in my notes as well.  I did notice, and you probably won't unless you enlarge and REALLY look, while editing the pics that there were a few streaky spots.  It wasn't noticeable to the naked eye, so I wouldn't worry about it too much.

Hannah - Can be best described as a clear, classic red cream with a balanced (neutral) undertone.  It's a gorgeous basic red.  Unlike any of the other reds I own from Zoya, which is a lot of them.  


Like I said, I honestly can't pick a favorite.  Though I don't feel like there needed to be 2 reds, I like them both.  I would have maybe swapped one for like a burnt orange or something.  


These are now currently available on Zoya.com for $9ea. or $54 for the entire sampler set.  They also have mini sets.
