Zoya is one of my absolute favourite brands for nail polishes, I trust it because they are always making efforts to propose the cleanest ingredients and formulations with high professional quality. That is why I was super excited to learn they have a new lipstick range.

I have received three of the Zoya lipsticks as press-sample and I'm ready to tell you my opinion about them! (On the above picture from left to right: Georgia, Cameron, Paisley)
|(On the above picture from left to right: Georgia, Cameron, Paisley)|
The first one I tried was Cameron. A pale nude creamy lipstick, which truth be told I was convinced it wasn't going to work for me. Usually pale nude lipstick make me look terrible, giving me "ill" appearance. I was already thinking who of my lucky friends was going to be the one I'll pass it on, how SILLY of me! As soon as I tried it I fell for it. I was so wrong, like, am I not old enough to know what colours will flatter me? Well this lipstick taugth me a lesson: do not judge before trying it on!
Cameron is very creamy, and despite it being so pale it looks nice on me, especially with heavy smokey eyes. Check my look here and tell me, isn't this colour perfect for that kind of look? The lpstick applies flawlessly, it is fully opaque and it has a pink undertone which makes it more wearable and super flattering.
The staying power is ok for a cream lipstick, it stays decently put for four hours after which I prefer reapplying. But the brand is not claiming these are long lasting, so that is ok.
Cameron ended up being my favourite of the three!!
Paisley is "MY" shade. Almost every lipstick I use for everyday looks is a variation of this shade. It is a soft rose, that in my opinion, is one of the most flattering on girls with dark hair. Paisley is hydrating, but I love that it doesn't feel too rich or slippery, so it really holds for 5+ hours without needing any touch-up. The colour is fully opaque in one coat and it is a great everyday shade.
I knew this would live in my purse since I first saw it!
Georgia was also quite a surprise for me. On the bullet it looks more like a dark berry or wine shade, but on the lips is a bright raspberry red (well technically raspberry is a berry, only not a "dark" one). This is not a shade I would usually choose for myself, I admit I would have preferred a darker colour for this season. But I cannot deny the WOW effect is quite powerful!
I love the formulation, it applies so flawlessly without lip liner! It doesn't bleed or migrate into fine lines, it feels super comfortable throughout the day and it is pretty glamorous.
The colour lasts well for about 5 hours without touchups.
The complete Zoya Lipstick range is now available in Switzerland at beautykosm.com, each lipstick bullet contains 4.2g of product and retails for 28.00 CHF each.
Paisley went directly to my purse, Cameron became my best ally for deep smokey eyes and I will pass Georgia to my dear auntie who loves these shades. Now I am super intrigued by "Matte Velvet Red" that sounds so lush! What about you? Which of the new Zoya Lipstick would be your perfect colour?
Have a lovely day sweeties!!
