Zoya Summer 2017 Wanderlust Collection Swatches and Reviews: The Cremes Part I

*press samples*

Hi guys! How has your week been? I'm really looking forward to my long weekend, despite not having too many plans. I believe I have to go to a cookout on Saturday, but that's about it. We always go to the neighboring town's fireworks because they're just better. Other than that, I think I'll be laying low. Tonight I have the first set of cremes from the Zoya Wanderlust collection (there are 8 in total). I would have preferred 6 shimmers and 6 cremes, but that's just me. Shall we see what the first set has in store for us?

Zoya Arbor (2 coats)

Squee, we're starting off with the interesting one! Arbor is a mossy olive green creme that isn't your typical summery green. It's the less yellow sister of Scout from Monday. All of the cremes were extremely pigmented and required 2 coats for full coverage. I had no issues with the formula - they weren't too thin or thick.

Zoya Byrdie (2 coats)

Warning, you're going to see a few pinks in this collection. I do love my pinks, but they could have removed one of them and it wouldn't break my heart. Byrdie is a medium bubblegum pink creme that has some blue undertones. It's a nice, bright color that is definitely wearable. Pictures show 2 simple coats. 

Zoya Cora (2 coats)

Next, we have Cora which is in my top 3 for the collection. It's a bright orange creme leaning towards a coral. I've worn it a couple times already, and I think that trend is going to continue for the next month or so. I also think this color would look gorgeous on any skintone. Swatches above show 2 coats.

Zoya Etsy (2 coats)

Didn't we already see this color? Oh wait, that was Byrdie and this is Etsy. I mean, they're pretty close to be in the same collection. If you look closely at the bottle, you can see some subtle shimmer, but that does not translate on the nail. It's also slightly warmer and dustier than Byrdie. This is 2 easy coats with topcoat. 

What do you think so far? Like I said, there are 3 pinks in the collection, and they could have given me a second blue instead. Or a grey. Or purple. You get the point. Zoya polishes retail for $10 and you can find out more about them on their websiteFacebookTwitter, or Instagram pages. Keep an eye out for them in your local Ulta store if you want to see the bottles in person before you buy.

Oh yeah, and Zoya has a buy 3 get 3 free sale going on with the code 3COLOR (plus free shipping) through July 7, 2017.
