Sophisticates Collection by Zoya

Press Sample

Good evening everyone!  I hope you area all having a wonderful day!  Tonight I am dropping in to share the latest new collection from Zoya.  The new Sophisticates Collection consists of 12 amazing shades that are perfect for transitioning into Fall weather.  You have a great mix of cremes, shimmers, and even one that would make for a great glitter topper.  Today’s post is VERY picture heavy so let’s dive on in to some new Zoya!

First up we have Padma.  This is a rich, deep, vermillion cream that has a great berry twist.  This lacquer was a bit on the thick side so it was a little “lumpy” to apply.  Personally I would add some thinner to get to a smoother and easier to work with formula.  In my photos I am wearing three coats of Padma, two would have been plenty had it applied smoother.

Next up we have Mckenna.  This is a pearly almond shade that is a nice twist on your standard nude creme.  Again this formula had a little to be desired.  I’m not sure if it’s the weather or what but again I felt the need to add thinner to perfect the formula.  In my photos I am wearing two coats of Mckenna.

Next up we have Hera.  This is a muted, red mauve creme that just seems perfect for Fall!  Once again though, wasn’t a huge fan of the formula, better but still a bit tricky to apply.  In my photos I am wearing two coats of Hera.

Now for a favorite from the collection.  Beth is a soft sandy gold metallic lacquer with a hint of rose gold.  Application and formula were perfection!!!  In my photos I am wearing two coats of Beth.

Now for a glitter jelly.  Gal is a smokey, iridescent, peridot gold metallic.  This lacquer is certainly on the sheer side so you could layer, or you could use as a topper to add some extra sparkle to those Fall cremes.  In my photos I am wearing three coats of Gal.

Now for another love in the collection.  Joni is a rich deep, dusty plum creme that is just perfection.  This formula was much easier to work with a left me with a great finish.  In my photos I am wearing three coats of Joni.

Yep, another love here!  Mona is a deep, burgundy plum creme that reminds me of rich fall foliage.  The formula was easy to work with and had great coverage.  In my photos I am wearing just two coats of Mona.

Next up we have Presley.  This is a smokey, mauve taupe cream that has the perfect purple and smoke undertones.  This formula was a bit thicker and again I felt the need to add some thinner.  In my photos I am wearing two coats of Presley.

Now for some vibrant green, those last few leaves holding on to summer.  Tabitha is a deep hunter green pearl with an amazing finish.  Formula, application, and coverage were all perfect.  In my photos I am wearing two coats of Tabitha.

Next up we have Yvonne.  This is a rich, Bordeaux red cream that is perfect for Fall and Winter!  I loved everything about this lacquer, perfection!  In my photos I am wearing two coats of Yvonne.

Now for sadly, the only blue in the collection.  Hadley is a smokey, midnight blue that has the right amount of cool tones.  Formula, application, and coverage were once again perfect.  In my photos I am wearing two coats of Hadley.

Lastly we have Elaine.  This is a dark, umber brown creme.  I just loved this shade and its smokey feel.  In my photos I am wearing two coats of Elaine.

So what do you guys think of the new Sophisticates Collection by Zoya?  Overall, there are few must haves and few eh.  I wish there had been a few less pink/red/mauve shades and a few more blues and maybe even an orange creme.  Please take a moment to check out all the amazing lacquers Zoya has to offer and please give them a follow on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram for up to date info.  Thank you so much for stopping by tonight and I will see you all again soon!

    Did you find Presley to have a particularly strong odor? I opened my bottle and it was KAPOW, definitely more than the usual smell I get from Zoya.

    I wonder why they are so all over the place with this collection as far as formula goes. I haven’t bought in a long time but I do really like several of these.
