Zoya Summer Collections are Coming! Zoya Island Fun and Paradise Sun

In keeping with my new approach to collection news, I want to share my thoughts on the just-announced Zoya summer Collections, Island Fun and Paradise Sun. As we've come to expect from Zoya, one six-piece collection is cremes and one includes six coordinating shades with a special finish, typically metallic, foil, glitter, etc. I like this approach because there's something for everyone as far as the central color story goes...but it would be fun if Zoya just completely surprised us with something radical. Having said that, these two sets, with their rich pinks and teals, is right up my alley.

First up is Island Fun, the cremes. Zoya says, "Ready for an island vacation, these playful creams embody a tropical getaway! They are strong in color to balance the brilliance of the summer sun, with a flawless cream formula."  Zoya descriptions follow the pics.


  • Demetria - A vibrant poppy red in a full coverage and densely pigmented cream formula.
  • Nana - Deep summer fuchsia in a full coverage and densely pigmented cream formula.
  • Serenity - Summer purple in a full coverage and densely pigmented cream formula. Reminiscent of beautiful blooming irises, a harbinger of summer!
  • Talia - True turquoise in full coverage and densely pigmented cream formula.
  • Cecilia - Classic teal in a full coverage and densely pigmented cream formula.
  • Jace - Modern tropical green in a full coverage and densely pigmented cream formula. A green that is more muted than lime and surprisingly wearable!

The second half, Paradise Fun, includes metallic versions of the shades above. Zoya says, "Fully saturated with a gorgeous micronized metallic sheen, these shimmering beauties are much like sunshine sparkling on water. Meant to be used as an independent color, these shades feature a full-coverage, densely pigmented formula."
 

  • Aphrodite - Vibrant summer red with a micronized pearl metallic finish and multi-hued flash that brings it to life.
  • Mae - Warm magenta pink with a micronized metallic pearl finish, reminiscent of vibrant Mediterranean flowers.
  • Isa - Deep blue-based purple with a micronized metallic pearl finish and an aqua flash that embodies the beauty of exotic island flowers.
  • Isa - Deep blue-based purple with a micronized metallic pearl finish and an aqua flash that embodies the beauty of exotic island flowers.
  • Oceane - True turquoise with a micronized metallic pearl finish that reflects the clearest blue ocean waters.
  • Selene - True teal with a micronized metallic pearl finish. A unique shade with an aqua fleck that resembles deeper layers of ocean water.
  • Genesis - Crystalline white with a micronized metallic pearl finish. Designed to look like micro-fine diamond dust!

Normally I always favor the cremes...but this time, I think I'm more excited for the metallics. They look more summery and fun to me. We shall see. Hopefully there will be swatches on the blog soon. What do you think?
