Zoya MatteVelvet Collection

Good evening!  I'm very happy to share this post with you because I think the Zoya MatteVelvet Collection consists of the sexiest polishes ever!  The colors are fantastic, the formula is perfect and the finish is amazing.  I am personally very excited that Zoya re-released this collection because I spent a good amount of time last year scouring through beauty supply stores looking for them (I'm sure many others did the same).  I have each polish from this collection shown in their regular matte finish and then with topcoat - they are all stunning both ways.  The MatteVelvet Collection is currently available for purchase and each bottle is $9 USD.  There is also a MatteVelvet Top Coat for $10 and a MatteVelvet red lipstick for $12.   Buy all the MatteVelvet things!

Dovima is a "smokey charcoal-black with strong silver shimmer and a velvety MATTEVELVET finish."  It's a wearable black that anyone can rock!  The silver shimmer is lovely.  I reached full opacity and perfect coverage in 2 coats of Dovima.

Loredana is a "medium gunmetal grey, packed with silvery shimmer and a velvety MATTEVELVET finish."  It looks like brushed metal and it's so cool!  Loredana had an awesome formula and applied perfectly.  I used 2 coats of Loredana for full coverage.

Posh is hands down my favorite of the 6-piece collection.  It's a gorgeous "medium cool-toned wine red with metallic red shimmer and a velvety MATTEVELVET finish."  Posh is such a luxurious color and definitely makes me feel sexy when I have it on.  I used 2 coats of Posh for full coverage.  Formula and application were both perfect.

Verushka is my second favorite in the collection.  Verushka is a "deep evergreen garnished with strong metallic shimmer in a velvety MATTEVELVET finish."  This screams Christmas to me.  Much like the previous shades, the formula and application are both wonderful.  No issues to report.  I used 2 coats of Verushka for perfect coverage.

Savita is a "bold, vibrant medium purple with strong red and gold shimmer with a velvet MATTEVELVET finish."  Such a pretty purple.  And the way that red shimmer shines through the base?  WOW!  Savita had a perfect formula and applied like a dream.  I used 2 coats of Savita to reach full opacity.

I saved Harlow for last because it was on my wish list for so long, I still can't believe that I own it.  Harlow is a "rich, saturated rose plum packed with sparkling metallic shimmer in a velvety MATTEVELVET finish."  The shimmer in Harlow seems to be in larger pieces, or possibly a higher quantity of shimmer?  But it totally works for this shade.  It's truly gorgeous and feminine and sexy at the same time.  Formula and application were both fabulous.  I used 2 coats of Harlow for full coverage.
