Zoya Fall 2017 Lipstick Swatches and Reviews

*press samples*

Hi guys! Tonight I have swatches of the latest 7 Zoya lipsticks. There's a BOGO Free sale going on for the next few hours, so I wanted to get this out ASAP. Yup, you'll get 2 Zoya lipsticks for just $12 with free shipping on orders over $25 until midnight (EST) tonight! I was going to post these reviews with the lipsticks on my lips, but I happened to have an allergic reaction to something I ate so my lips are a swollen painful mess right now. I will mention that I've found all Zoya lipsticks to be moisturizing (even their matte finishes) and last around 3-5 hours depending on the color. Swatch time!

L-R Addie, Bristol, Izzy

Addie: a nude cream with some pink undertones. It was the lightest of the shades and was also one of the more pigmented colors.
Bristol: a medium wine cream. It looks more intimidating in the tube, but I think this will be a wearable color for the fall. 
Izzy: an opaque fuchsia cream. It has a bit more red in it to my eye. 

L-R Layne, Lucky, Maggie, Tommy

Layne: a dusty rose/mauve cream. This is my favorite from the collection and it was really pigmented. 
Lucky: a bright, cool-toned pink cream. It's a fun burst of color for a fall set. 
Maggie: a medium berry cream. Once applied it looks a little like Layne, but it's definitely more red. 
Tommy: a deep blue/purple cream. Whoa, what an intense color! It's outside of their "normal" colors, but I'm glad to see they're looking outside the box. 

Natural Light Shade (3 swipes of color)

Natural Light Direct Sunlight (3 swipes of color)

Well there you have it! I hope this gives you a chance to pick up any colors you're interested in before the sale goes away. These retail for $12, which is a fair price, but you can get these for $6 using the code ZLIP now. What do you think? You can find out more about Zoya and their lipsticks on their websiteFacebookTwitter, or Instagram pages.

Zoya Fall 2017 Sophisticates Collection Swatches and Reviews Part II

*press samples*

Hi guys! Not much is going on around here. I'm not traveling for a couple more weeks, and I'm super happy about that. Dancing With the Stars was good last night. Jordan and Lindsey seem to be the front-runners, but I'm rooting for Frankie Muniz. Tonight I'll be finishing up the first half of the Sophisticates collection from Zoya. Let's get to some swatches!

Zoya Fall 2017 Sophisticates Collection Swatches and Reviews Part I

*press samples*

Hi guys! Dancing With the Stars is back on tonight, and you know I'll be watching. Watching from the beginning is the best so you can watch the good and the bad. Tonight I have the first 3 polishes from the Zoya 2017 Sophisticates Collection. The days are getting shorter and the weather is slowly getting cooler. Well, ever-so-slightly cooler here in NC. And with the changing weather we get some new transitional colors to get us through the early fall months. This is a 12-piece collection with a mix of cremes, shimmers, and pearls, so we need to get into some swatches.

Lollipop Posse Lacquer Summer 2017 Mix Tape: Overdrive Edition: But My Hands are Busy in the Air and She Lives On the Borderline

Hi guys! Tonight I have a new brand on the blog, and I've been meaning to try them for months. When I saw swatches from the Lollipop Posse Lacquer Summer 2017 collection I knew I had to get a couple. I ordered on August 8th and received my shipping notice on the 13th. When the package didn't move for over a week I went ahead and e-mailed them. Apparently three labels were misplaced and mine was one of them. Karen shipped the items the next day and gave me a 20% discount on my next order to make up for the delay. I must say, it was all handled quickly and professionally and I'll definitely be back to order more items. A+ for customer service. Now how are the polishes?

More Zoya Swatches and Reviews: Flynn, Josie, Lotus

Hi guys! I was traveling for work again this past week and I'm still feeling the exhaustion. This time I was in Texas and I was lucky enough to see my mother and sister-in-law! I don't get to see them often, so it was great to visit with them after work. Oh, and I hope all my readers in Texas and the Southeast are safe and sound from the recent hurricanes. My thoughts are with you during this tough time. On a lighter note, I have a few more random swatches from classic collections from Zoya. I'm still working my way through the latest Sophisticates Collection for Fall 2017, but it will be up in a week or 2. Shall we get to some reviews?
