Zoya Fall 2015 Flair Collection Swatches & Review

Happy Saturday!! I have the second Fall 2015 collection from Zoya today, called Flair; I showed you the Focus collection of crèmes yesterday. This half is the flirty, more sassy side of their Fall shades. We've got six beautiful "liquid metals" to check out, so let's get started!

First is Aggie describes as a gold "holo-flip", which I'm guessing means duochrome, liquid metal with bronze microglitter. It is similar to, but not a dupe for, Chanel's Peridot. This was thinner than the others in the collection and there were slight brushstrokes but nothing terrible. I used two coats here but you may need three if you do thinner coats.

Cinnamon is a brown bronze-y liquid metal that was originally designed for Zang Toi NYFW F/W15. It was a little thicker and flowed on the nail like a dream. The brushstrokes in this one were a bit more apparent. Two coats.

This is Ember, a fiery orangey red liquid metal. I'm not usually a fan of colors like this in a metallic finish, and Zoya has plenty of them, but I enjoyed this one a bit more for some reason. I had some staining on my skin after removal though, so be mindful of that. This is two coats.

Estelle is a stunning "blue on blue" liquid metal. This has a real vibrancy to it, very striking. Great formula, two coats for opacity.

Here we have Giada, a lovely purple liquid metal with the slightest touch of pearlescence in fuchsia. The metallic finish in this one seemed finer ground than the others, like the particles were smaller. Easy to apply, neither thick nor thin. Two coats.

Tris is last, with a name I'm loving because I'm a fan of the Divergent book series and that is the main character. This is described as a blackened, brushed nickel liquid metal. I think this is such a great Fall color, very edgy but still wearable. Brushstrokey, opaque in two coats.

You can purchase these now on the Zoya website for $9 each, $54 for the full size set, or $30 for a mini set. All in all, I think the Fall selection from Zoya this year is really great. I don't dislike any of the colors and I really enjoyed most of them. Which of their two Fall collections is your favorite? Are you more into crèmes or metallics?
