Zoya - Whispers Collection Swatches & Review

14 comments

Hiya guys! I'm currently still snowed in and enjoying my day off work. Kind of feeling stir-crazy from staying in all weekend, but I did make the most of it. I had my first swatch-a-thon of 2016 and it was a great success with almost 20 polishes swatched! Today I am sharing swatches for the Whispers Transitional 2016 Collection from Zoya. Hopefully you aren't too tired of seeing these just yet. Personally, I have been excited about this neutral pastel-y collection since the initial press release last month. Let's jump right in and get started.


The Whispers Transitional 2016 Collection from Zoya is now available for purchase. Each bottle retails for $10.00 each and the full collection retails for $54.00.

Zoya - Cala

Cala can be described as a soft nude with a kiss of warmth that will flatter most skin tones. This reminds me a little of Zoya's two year ago neutral shade Chantal with a bit less yellow undertone. As far as nudes go, I think this one is super flattering against my skin-tone and can see this being my go-to from now on. Shown here in three coats and sealed with a glossy topcoat.


Zoya - April

April can be described as a light, rosy toned neutral that is a modern take on blush. For those with a lighter skin-tone than me who didn't find Cala to suit them might find themselves in better luck with April. It's pink undertones bring out a tad too much warmth for my liking in comparison to Cala. It always irks me when there are two nudes so similar in tone in one collection. Definitely don't think you need to own both, just go with whichever suits your skintone the best. Shown here in three coats and sealed with a glossy topcoat.


Zoya - Eastyn

Eastyn can be described as a subtle grayed grape that is more interesting than mauve and gives a modern alternative that is ever so wearable. This was one of the shades I was most excited about since the promotional hit the web. It has such a unique feel, not too grey and not too lavender. Shown here in two coats and sealed with a glossy topcoat.


Zoya - Misty

Misty can be described as an easy to wear taupe that is an updated version of gray with just a touch of green to make it daring. I honestly don't know how I feel about this shade. I don't love it or hate it. It's definitely a unique shade in my collection, but not necessarily one I would turn to off the top of my head. In comparison to the rest of these it feels easily forgettable. Shown here in two coats and sealed with a glossy topcoat.


Zoya - Ireland

Ireland can be described as a uniquely wearable green that is muted enough to make it subtle yet still interesting. I'm not usually a fan of anything green because more often than not it doesn't suit my skin-tone. In this case I felt like the shade hit that nail on the head. I can see myself turning to this one as my go-to green whenever I want something light. Shown here in two coats and sealed with a glossy topcoat.


Zoya - Lake

Lake can be described as a softened blue that gives the effect of serene water with just a hint of vibrancy to preserve its luminosity. Another favorite for me from this collection. This actually might even trump my long-time favorite light blue shade from Zoya Blu. Shown here in two coats and sealed with a glossy topcoat.


Overall although I have loved prior transitional collections more, this years Whispers collection is still beautiful as a whole. Definitely has a few I love and a few I'd pass on. Throughout my review I purposely skipped over talking about each formula individually because it would of ended up sounding like a broken record. This is one of those rare collections where the formula consistency is almost exact throughout all six. For the most part, these do tend to be on the thin side and flooded my cuticles often when I overloaded the brush. The formula ends up self-leveling really well and for light shades these are surprisingly really opaque. Lake and Cala are my picks for must-haves, which ones are yours?

As I mentioned before, the Whispers Transitional 2016 Collection from Zoya is now available for purchase. Each bottle retails for $10.00 each and the full collection retails for $54.00.

  3. Darn it all. Ireland is exactly the type of color that I see and love and get, and then it looks terrible against my skin. Why, you beautiful muted greens, why?
