Let's check out the lipstick first!  I was sent 2 to review...Candy and Mellie.  Both are the cream formula and they are smooth with fantastic pigmentation.

I have from top to bottom Mellie and Candy on my arm in natural light.  Both are lovely colors.

This is Mellie.  It's a cool-toned red-pink cream with medium coverage.  I thought the coverage was perfect actually!

And here is Candy, a cool-toned bright pink cream with medium coverage.  Another great color and I think it'll be perfect for the Summer!

Moving along to the Seashells collection.  I'm so excited that Zoya brought back their original Pixie Dust formula with this collection!  

Levi is a beige-gold full of sparkly holo gold glitters.  It's like a beach sand color and it's perfect.  I used 2 coats for full coverage and no topcoat.

Tilly is a silvery grey Pixie Dust.  Gorgeous color and the holo hexs are fabulous.  Formula and application were stellar.  2 coats and no topcoat used.

Zooey is beautiful coral-pink with gold glitter and holo hexs.  LOVE!  I think this is my favorite of the collection and yes it's because I love coral.  It's soft and sparkly and totally fantastic!  Formula and application were great.  I used 2 coats, no topcoat.

Bay is a sky blue with some green and gold glitter as well as holo hexs.  Love how the gold and green create an aqua effect.  Looks like a cool pool of water.  Great formula and application.   I used 2 coats and no topcoat.

Rounding out the Seashells collection is Linds, a cherry red texture polish with gold and pink glitters.    It's a testament to the fact that red can be work all year round and look amazing.  Wonderful formula and application.  2 coats and no topcoat.

We've now come to the Sunsets Collection.  This is made up of 6 bright cremes that are perfect for a Summer mani or pedi.  These vibrant shades will look fantastic poolside or on vacation!  

Dixie is a watermelon red creme.  It's juicy and the perfect shade of pink/red.  I have a few favorites in this collection and Dixie is one of them.  Formula and application were both perfect - smooth and creamy.  I used 2 coats and no topcoat.

Brynn is a saturated hot pink creme.  Of course this is another of my favorites.  I adore me a perfect pink!  Formula and application were both top notch.  I used 2 coats and no topcoat.

Cam is yet another of my favorites.  It's a tangerine orange that is totally poppin'!  I love rocking orange shades in the Summer and this is going to be in my regular rotation for the next few months (heck it'll be a great Fall/Halloween orange too!).  Buttery formula, but this one was just the tiniest bit streaky when I applied it.  I used 2 coats and no topcoat.

Ness is a dusty jade creme.  It is slightly reminiscent of those milky jade gemstones, which is cool with me because I think those are gorgeous.  Formula and application were aces.  I used 1 coat and no topcoat needed.

Dory is the best name for this blue.  I can only assume that it was inspired by Dory from the Finding Nemo (and upcoming Finding Dory movie).  It's a vibrant cornflower blue (if that's a thing).  Loved the color, the formula and application were both  stellar.  I only needed 1 coat for full coverage and no topcoat used.

Last but not least is Liv, a perfect purple creme.  I find this to lean a little towards the berry family and I totally dig it.  I know this will be a crowd pleaser!  I used 2 coats for full coverage and no topcoat.
