Zoya Fall 2018 Element Collection Swatches and Reviews: Part I

*press samples*

Hi guys! I've been meaning to get this post out forever, and I'm glad it's finally happening. I decided to break up the Zoya Elemental Collection into 2 parts because I feel like some colors get lost when there are a million photos. It's a 12-piece collection featuring lots of pinks and purples in a variety of finishes. These are available now for $10 each in the Zoya store, or at your local Ulta. Shall we get to some swatches? 

Zoya Alyssa (2 coats)

We're starting off a more traditional fall shade. Alyssa is a deep cranberry red creme that has some berry undertones. It applied well in just 2 coats. 

Zoya Devin (2 coats)

You guys know me, of course Devin is a top pick in the collection. It is reminiscent of some of my favorite Zoya shades like Hazel and Crystal. Devin is a steely blue foil with a strong shimmer finish. This feels more like a winter color, but I love it anyway. This is 2 easy coats. 

Zoya Donnie (2 coats)

Donnie is warm berry purple creme. This is another shade that isn't winning any awards for originality, but it's a great fall polish. It applied well (like most Zoya cremes) in just 2 coats. 

Zoya Gardner (2 coats)

Gardner is a blurple foil with a magenta shimmer finish. Zoya describes it as a periwinkle color, but I think the foil finish is throwing the color off for my eye. You guys are going to be tired of me saying it, but this was another 2-coater with an easy formula to work with. 

Zoya Jenna (2 coats)

I hope you're ready for more pinks because there are many more to come in Part II. Jenna is dusty rose creme with blue undertones. It dried with a shiny finish in 2 simple coats. 

Zoya Kendra (2 coats)

Last, but not least, we have Kendra, which is a deep marsala creme. I didn't 100% know what color marsala was, but apparently is a little red, brown, and purple. It dried with a shiny finish and barely needed a second coat. If you are heavy-handed, you may get away with 1. 

There you have it! What's your favorite so far? Stop back tomorrow (Wednesday at the latest) for the final 6. 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.
