Zoya Naturel 5 Collection 2022 Swatches and Reviews

*press samples* 

Hi everyone! How have things been in your world? Welp, it finally happened: my husband caught COVID after 2 and a half years. He started to feel ill on Saturday night, and he has to isolate until at least Friday. So far I've been able to ward it off *fingers crossed* and we've been living in separate parts of the house. Thankfully it has been fairly mild, but I know being completely isolated in 1 small room has been hard for him. Please keep him in your thoughts. On a brighter note, I have the 5-piece Naturel 5 collection from Zoya that tend to be more neutral or nude and are released during that "transitional" period between winter and spring. 

This set features 5 creams - 4 brown/beige shades and a deep plummy purple. These, along with the 4 Naturel collections, are all available now on the Zoya website for $12 each. Make sure to sign up for Zoya's email list or follow them on social media for lots of sales they run. Shall we get to swatches? 

Zoya Chelsea (3 coats)

I'm gonna be honest, when I was looking back at my photos, it was really hard to tell that Chelsea and Sutton were different colors. Yes, they looked that similar. Chelsea has a bit more pink and peach in it and is a bit lighter. This was the only one that needed 3 coats, but that's expected because it was such a light color. 

Zoya Sutton (2 coats)

Sutton is pretty close to Chelsea, right? It's still a light color, but it has more of a beige undertone. I used 2 thicker coats for full opacity, but if you use thin coats, you may need a third. All of these have that perfect Zoya cream formula. 

Zoya Evan (2 coats)

Now we're getting to more medium shades that stand out from my skintone. Zoya calls Evan a "saddle brown," but I'd say it's more of a warm-toned sandy brown color. It reminds me of a coffee with a lot of milk added. Evan was an easy 2-coater. 

Zoya Parker (2 coats)

Parker is the cool-toned sibling to Evan and is a medium greige cream with milk chocolate undertones. Can you tell it's really hard to describe these colors? This is another one that basically applied itself in just 2 coats. 

Zoya Elyse (2 coats)

Last, but not lease we have Elyse which is quite the outlier for the collection. It's a deep dusty plum cream that would look great for a fall manicure. This is the darkest shade from the set, and needed just 2 coats for full opacity. 

There you have it, folks! My top recommendations are Sutton, Parker, and Elyse, but your favorite will depend on your personal skintone. That's just how it goes with these neutral shades. 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. They often have sales, so check their social media pages periodically.
