Zoya Naturel Deux (2) Collection - Swatches, Review and Some Nail Art

*These products are Cruelty Free 


Remember when I said the Zoya Naturel Collection was one of my favorites Zoya ever did just because they're awesome neutral-ish cremes? Well they've taken it a step further with the release of the Zoya Naturel Deux (2) Collection!

Zoya Naturel 2 Collection



These are a bit darker than the first Naturel Collection and just perfect for my skin tone even though a couple of them are warm shades. These are meant to transition from late summer to early fall.

Before I swatched them though I had to play around with them a bit! So I did a toothpick marble. Naturally.

I used Emilia, Spencer and Aubrey with a coat of top coat.





Swatches and Review after the jump...




There are 3 "brown" shades and 3 "mauve" shades in this collection. All had the same great formula. Two coats and no top coat for all the swatches. No issues to report at all.  I've done two in artificial lighting and two in indirect natural lighting for each one. We'll start with the browns.

The darkest is Emilia. It's a dark Van Dyke brown that reads cool-toned against my skin.






-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Chanelle is the next one. It's a nice caramel macchiato - warm and toasty.






---------------------------------------------------------------------------------

And the lightest of "the browns" is Spencer. It's a creamy camel shade that can suit most any skin tone.






--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The darkest of the "mauves" is Marnie (my bottle actually says Marney) and it's a deep warm-toned brown-based mauve/plum.






---------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Aubrey is a dusty, medium mauve creme.







And finally, the lightest of the "mauves" is Madeline. It's a dusty antique rose shade that seems to be neutral in tone - neither too warm nor too cool.







-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

What do you think? Favorites? If you're a fan of cremes and especially neutral cremes, this collection is a home run. My favorites are the 3 browns.

  4. Was waiting for you to do these! I love the mauves but can't help but think they are close to a Chanel or two. Am I nuts?
