Zoya MatteVelvet Collection Photos, Swatches, and Review

Zoya brought back the MatteVelvets and I have to say that if you are a fan of mattes/suedes, then these are must haves! I missed them both times they were released, so I was really excited to have these. I remember my first blog post ever was with Mitzi, a Zoya MatteVelvet chartreuse green, so this is also special for me. Shall we take a looksee? Each of them shows 3 coats.

Starting off with Dovima, “a smoky charcoal-black with strong silver shimmer and a velvety MATTEVELVET finish” is definitely a great statement nail for your little black dress if you don’t like IN YOUR FACE sparkle. It kind of reminds me of chalkboard nails, so get your doodling nail art pens handy, if you like to decorate!

Zoya Wishes Collection Photos, Swatches, and Review

Zoya Holiday 2014 collection is called the Zoya Wishes Collection, and there are 2 metallic frosts, 1 creme, and 3 PixieDusts. Let’s jump right into it. Everything is 3 coats.

Starting with the two metallic frosts.

Prim, “described as a velvet blue metallic with a full coverage, high-density pigment and buttery smooth application”. I adore periwinkle shades, and that is how I would describe this shade. I was impressed that it did not show brushstrokes as much as I expected, which is a pleasant surprise since this is a gorgeous shade.

The matte top coat has the same frosted bottle as the matte shades (which are COMING SOON in a post). And, the lipstick was in a very simple packaging. I was actually hoping it would be more chic than this.
