The Zoya Paradise Sun collection consists of 6 fully saturated micronized metallic sheen shimmers. Each shade retails for $9 and will be available both on the Zoya website and in stores. I used Out The Door top coat for the photos below. Let’s take a look!
Zoya Genesis is described as a crystalline white with a micronized metallic pearl finish. Designed to look like micro-fine diamond dust. Three coats. The formula had a decent consistency (not too thick or thin) but as with most white was a bit streaky.
Zoya Selene is described as a true teal with a micronized metallic pearl finish. A unique shade with an aqua fleck that resembles deeper layers of ocean water. Two coats. The formula was pretty good, a bit on the thin side but no pooling as long as I didn’t overload the brush. This is just a touch darker in person.
Zoya Oceane is described as a true turquoise with a micronized metallic pearl finish that reflects the clearest blue ocean waters. Two coats but you could probably get away with one. The formula was good, a bit on the thick side but still easy to apply. This one is super gorgeous and just a touch brighter in person.
Zoya Isa is described as a deep blue-based purple with a micronized metallic pearl finish and an aqua flash that embodies the beauty of exotic island flowers. Two coats. The formula was okay, a bit on the thin side but I didn’t have any pooling as long as I didn’t overload the brush. This does have that slightly skunky smell that certain blues/purples have but it goes away when it dries. I really liked the look of this one! I did have to color-edit this one to get it to show it’s true blurple self.
Zoya Mae is described as a warm magenta pink with a micronized metallic pearl finish, reminiscent of vibrant Mediterranean flowers. Two coats. The formula on this one was great, not too thick or thin and went on easily. This was definitely another favorite!
Zoya Aphrodite is described as a vibrant summer red with a micronized pearl metallic finish and multi-hued flash that brings it to life. Two coats. The formula was on the thin side, always a bummer with reds since they are such a pain to clean up.
Overall, I think these are all great colors although I’m surprised that I didn’t like these as much as I thought I would- the cream half of the collection (Zoya Island Fun) just has better ‘summer’ colors to me. But overall still a decent collection- a couple misses but some wins, too. These are available now on the Zoya website if you’d like to order any for yourself.
