Zoya Paradise Sun Collection ~ Summer 2015

Yesterday I had the Island Fun Collection to show you, the Paradise Sun are their metallic shimmery counterparts. I’m usually all about cremes, so these were a bit outside my typical box. But stepping outside your box never killed anybody.. Let’s take a look at these!


Genesis is described as a crystalline white with a micronized metallic pearl finish. Designed to look like micro-fine diamond dust. Genesis is a little watery, and required 3 full coats for opacity, but once you get there she is beautiful. I think she is worth the extra time.

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. The swatches below are 2 smooth coats with OTD top coat. A tad bit of staining, but nothing a couple minutes with a scrub brush can’t fix.

Oceane is described as a true turquoise with a micronized metallic pearl finish that reflects the clearest blue ocean waters. Oceane was very difficult to capture the true color, so if my skin looks a little green it’s because I had to adjust my photos a little to reflect the true color. 2 coats plus OTD top coat.

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. I really don’t see very much purple, I would describe it as a blurple leaning blue. It’s a pretty shade either way though, with a nice easy formula. 2 coats with OTD top coat.

Mae is described as a warm magenta pink with a micronized metallic pearl finish, reminiscent of vibrant Mediterranean flowers. Again, 2 easy coats with OTD top coat.

Aphrodite is described as a vibrant summer red with a micronized pearl metallic finish and multi-hued flash that brings it to life. I see a bit of an orange hue in this one, but very pretty color. 3 coats for full opacity, you might be able to get away with 2 thick coats. OTD top coat.

Overall, I like this collection. Nothing truly groundbreaking, but it doesn’t disappoint either. For favorites on this one I would say Oceane and Aphrodite.
Now, I bet you’re wondering how these compare to some of our other beloved Zoya colors. I will be back tomorrow with some more color comparison swatches for you!
