Hey there! I hope your Monday is going well! I’m gearing up for a busy week, but I’m super glad that this collection came in early so I could knock out my swatches this past weekend. In fact, tracking was showing that I would get this package on Tuesday so imagine my surprise when I got it on Saturday. Sweet! The Zoya Element Collection for Fall 2018 is just the type of collection that I like. On the heels of a disappointing experience with China Glaze’s Fall Collection, I’m really satisfied with these shades. Let’s take a look at my swatches below.
A full-coverage mauve taupe with a subtle shimmer – a perfect classic shade for Fall.
A full-coverage dusty rose pink cream with blue undertones.
A full-coverage raspberry rose cream.
A full-coverage pink-toned rose with soft glowing shimmer.
A beautiful full-coverage marsala cream.
A full-coverage red-toned purple cranberry cream.
A full-coverage purple-toned sangria cream.
A full-coverage concord grape cream.
A full-coverage mulberry berry cream.
A deeply saturated blackened aubergine cream.
A steel blue with hints of multicolored shimmer in a dense foil finish.
A deep periwinkle with a vibrant magenta shimmer in a dense foil finish.
I know that the first thing you’re going to notice is that this collection is very heavy on the berry/red/purple tones, but I love it. The darker shades are the type of shades that I think of when it comes to Fall collections. I do think that there was a lost opportunity for a little more diversity in the shades/finishes, though, and there are a lot of light shades that seem more fitting in a Spring collection. If you are a polish collector, you may have many similar shades so you can be selective in your purchasing. This is a very creme finish heavy collection so it may not be for everybody. The formula on all of the shades was very nice–all shades required 2 coats for my swatches and they covered nicely. While this collection is not unique by any stretch of the imagination, the dependable Zoya quality is there.
For a limited time as a pre-order special, you can purchase both samplers for the price of 1 and it will include free shipping. Click here to take advantage of this special.
