Zoya Whispers Collection Swatch & Review

*Press Sample*

Hello loves, welcome back. If you're like me then you're getting a little burnt out with all the sparkly, jewel toned and vampy shades for the holidays and winter. While I'm ready for the bright shades of summer and spring some are not. Enter Zoya with their transitional shades, the Whispers collection.
The formula on these are not the smooth cremes we've come to expect from Zoya, they are more of a crelly. That's not to say they are bad, most cover in two coats and while streaky on the first coat they do self-level nicely. All swatches show Revlon Gel Shine topcoat.

April: described as a light, rosey toned neutral that is a modern take on blush. I really didn't expect to like this one at all. I found myself quite liking the pink tinge that it has. Of course it doesn't hurt that it bears my wife's name. Two coats.

Cala: described as a soft nude with a kiss of warmth that will flatter most skin tones. This one really reminded me of a pair of nude Louboutins. This one was a little thin but didn't run or pool. Three coats.

Misty: described as an easy to wear taupe that is an updated version of gray with just a touch of green to make it daring. Two coats.

Eastyn: described as a subtle grayed grape that is more interesting than mauve and gives a modern alternative that is ever so wearable. I liked this one more than I thought I would. Two coats.

Lake: described as a softened blue that gives the effect of serene water with just a hint of vibrancy to preserve its luminosity. This one ended up being my favorite. Two coats but I could see some needing three. 

Ireland: described as a uniquely wearable green that is muted enough to make it subtle yet still interesting. This green is well balanced between blue & yellow so its flattering in all skin tones. I was hoping to like this more. Two coats.

Overall I like this collection more than I was expecting to but I can't wait for their spring and summer collections. My picks from this one would have to be April, Eastyn and Lake. I can't find these on Zoyas site at the moment, but keep checking back, they aren't gone for good I'm sure. What do you ladies think? As always, thanks for stopping by, and I hope you enjoyed :)
