Zoya: Magical Pixie, Summer 2014

I have three beautiful Zoya textured glitters to share with you all on this lovely (if somewhat rainy, here in the South at least) weekend! Here is the newest trio of Magical PixieDusts, ready to sparkle up your Summer!

Zoya Arlo

Let's start with the alluring Arlo, probably my favorite of the three! Arlo is a beautiful red-toned pink-y plum with a jelly-like base that's absolutely loaded with holographic glitter, sparkle, and of course, that magic Zoya pixie dust! These glitters dry with a matte, textured finish that give them the appearance of sparkling geode crystals. Arlo was probably the most opaque, and looked perfect in two coats, although I added a third for good measure. The formula was great, and quite easy to manage considering the amount of glitter, and I had no issues achieving an even look. I've also shown it with topcoat, as noted below, which actually made it look even more sparkly! To smooth it out nicely, I used two coats of Gelous and one coat of Seche Vite.

Zoya Bar

Bar was another favorite of mine, and is a beautiful soft, golden beige, also chock-full of that amazing holographic glitter and sparkle. These really are significantly more sparkly in person, too! The formula was also excellent and easy to get nice, even coverage, and was opaque in three coats.

Zoya Ginni

And lastly but not least-ly, here is Ginni, a lovely light rose-pink color just full of holographic glitter and sparkle. Another beautifully delicate and easily wearable color! The formula was wonderful as well, and looked evenly sparkly in 2-3 coats.

The Zoya Magical PixieDusts are rather more textured, or "chunkier," than the Classic PixieDust colors, but are still quite easy to work with to achieve that dazzling, sparkling crystals look. And while textured glitters may not be for everyone, I definitely feel that Zoya knows how to do them right. The formula, coverage, and colors they offer really set the standard as the best textured glitters available.
