The **NEW** Fall/Winter collection from Zoya is so perfectly 90s chic, it's not even funny! Hang on while I take you on a trip to your past or if you are way younger than me, a trip of a fantastic seasonal collection. This collection is made up of 6 colors plus a metallic Holo collection to counter match up with these beauts. They are $10 each or $60 for the entire collection. Let's see what the cremes are serving up!
This is a deep red that is oh so vampy. It leans a little on the dark purple, black side. This is going to be perfect with my flannels this up coming fall season.
I did use 2 coats with this color just for good measure. It has a really great coverage and a super shiny finish. I didn't top coat for any of these pictures so that shine is on it's own. If this doesn't scream fall to you, than I don't know what will.
This is described by Zoya as a mid-range taupe. It definitely leans more towards a grey taupe, but either way it is going to be one awesome Fall nude.
I also used 2 coats for this color. For some reason, it came out super chalky in all of these photos and it looks very similar to Misty just a little bit more warm. These pictures really look like Misty, but it's just the way the color was catching on my camera.
This is a beauuuutiful gray- leaning almost blue color. It is icy and oh so perfect for a Fall to Winter transition.
When I look at this color, I think elephants. Those beautifully cartooned elephants; like Babar. Yup, that's it. The perfect Babar gray!
This polish was super hard to photograph. It is soooo beautiful in real life and these picutes don't do it justice. Greens are so hard to make look great against all skintones. It is a true grass green that has a little blue pigment in it. It is oh so close to turquoise without being there just yet.
It applies so smoothly and actually looks great against my skintone. I have a lighter, colder tone so this colors reflects on that. Either way, it's so worth a try.
Ok... I can't with this color! It is such a beautiful blue. Zoya describes it as a Prussian blue. It is very similar to Sia- which I will be doing a comparison next week. It is a little darker than Sia but it is still very, very similar.
This is one of the brighter colors in collection and I think it's perfect to wrap up all these vamps nicely. The bright blue creme would make a perfect combination with just about any of these colors in the collection.
Tara is a perfect combination of purple and red. Zoya says it's a plum. I agree. This was another color that was really hard to photograph to get the true tone. It is so perfect for the Fall and you best bet this is my favorite out of the collection. Not because I don't love the rest of them but because I am a purple lover and it's almost out of control.... lol
I used to have a hair color close to this and I loved it. I had blue highlights throughout and it was awesome for a Winter color. I won't be going back to that hair color anytime soon, but I will be rocking this on my nails.
Overall, I love this collection. They are all perfect to wear both during the Fall and the Winter. Rock those vamps ladies, rock them!!!
What do you think of these colors? Will you be picking any of these up? Do you like the colors presented to represent the Fall the Winter?

Once again, I have teamed up with some brilliantly talented ladies and we are sooooo excited to bring you some end of the summer goodies!
I am only going to talk a little bit about my prize, but it's a surprise...prize! I have used soooo many fun products this summer and I thought that right before Fall, I give you one last hoorah at my summertime favorites! First up, something that will give you a summer glow all year round! This product is a must have for me! I am also throwing in some shades for your eyes, color for your nails and goodies for your face. Today I've joined up with 16 other beauty bloggers to do a fun blog hop GIVEAWAY! If you are unfamiliar what a blog hop is, it's pretty simple. Each lady in the hop is giving away something (beauty-related) on their own blog and you can click through from one blog to another, entering the giveaways as you go, until you end up back where you started -- right here at my blog. Once you do that…
Today, I am bringing back some oldies and some newbies from Pacifica. I really love this brand. In fact, one of my favorite highlighters is a Pacifica product. You can check it out here. I have had some really great products from Pacifica and I am glad to show you a couple more.
First, I have this awesome palette, Power of Love, from Pacifica. There are 10 different colors in this little flip top beauty. There is matte, satin and pearl finishes which makes it really nice to create a sweet multi-dimensional look. Each of the colors are silky smooth and stay that way throughout application. The colors are packed with pigment.
The shadows are infused with coconut to create a smooth and crease-less application. All of these are made without animal testing, animal ingredients, phthalates, talc, parabens, or petroleum. Another awesome thing is that Pacifica will donate a portion of their sales to support clean water! All packaging is recyclable and the printing is done…
This is my first time using any products from GA-DE Cosmetics, so I was excited to see what they can do. When using a product for the first time, I always like to learn a little bit about the company and then get a really good feel for their products. I was sent a full set of products to create a full face look. GA-DE Cosmetics says to wear their brand is to, "feel beauty of every day life, to feel powerfully feminine and to live for the richest experience life has to offer". Yes! It goes along perfectly with my Make Me Pretty philosophy of using products that make YOU feel good about yourself.
First up, two lipsticks. One in a sultry red color and the other a nude. The Idylic Soft Satin lipstick comes in 12 different colors ranging from the nude above to a deep plum color. Each satiny lipstick is infused with lip care ingredients that include hyaluronic filling spheres to help smooth out those kissers.
When I first tried them on my wrist as a swatch, I loved …
