After seeing the press release for Zoya's summer collection I couldn't wait to get my hands on them. Specifically the cream collection, Tickled. A six piece collection of bright super saturated creams? Yes please! Get your bibs ready because this is picture heavy drool-inducing post folks!
First up is Kitridge, a bright bubble gum or "Barbie" pink. I loves pinks like this but they don't always look that great against my skin tone. Kitridge is an exception- I loved the way it looked against my skin! I did find the formula a bit streaky which isn't that rare with pinks this light. It was also on the sheer side. I used three thin coats for full opacity.
Next up is Rocha, a blazing red orange. Colors like this scream summer to me. This is a color I think looks great on every skin tone and especially great with tans. The formula was great. Two easy and even coats for full opacity.
Ling, is slightly dusky cornflower blue. This colors feels more Spring than Summer to me. I tend to like brighter more indigo-leaning blues for the Summer months, but Ling is a universally flattering shade that would look good on most skin tones. Formula was very similar to Rocha's; I used two coats and had no issues with streaks or patches.
Wendy is a pretty pink-leaning coral shade and one of my favorites from this collection. I love a good coral and I love how soft this one is. The formula was very similar to Kitridge. I used three coats for full opacity.
Tilda is another favorite. First off love the name! Second love the color! The formula was the best of the bunch. Two coats for full opacity and no issues during application.
Last but not least is Rooney. I would characterize this color as a classic Summer pink. The formula was very good no streaks or patches and was opaque in two coats.
Overall I think this is a great collection. Nothing groundbreaking, just really pretty classic Summer colors. I can't wait to do try some nail art with them too! My personal favorites are Kitridge, Wendy and Tilda.
Zoya retails for $9 a bottle and is sold at Ulta as well as directly from their website
