Focus & Flair Collections – Zoya Fall/Autumn 2015

FOCUS (creams)

The Zoya Focus Collection features six strong, solid shades that anchor a look for fall as stand-alone shades. The densely pigmented cream formula features a unique, micro-grind pigment that allows for extra-smooth, streak-free application.

  • Charli (ZP807) – a dusty taupe cream with a hint of green, a perfect neutral.
  • Desiree (ZP806) – a classic sable brown cream that has just enough gray to keep it cool in tone.
  • Hannah (ZP805) – a clear, classic red cream with a balanced (neutral) undertone.
  • Janel (ZP804) – a deep red cream with a rich warm undertone.
  • Lidia (ZP803) – a rich eggplant cream with a blackened purple base and just a hint of red resulting in a color that is wearable for most skin tones.
  • Sia (ZP802) – a true, royal blue cream. NOTE: This is a highly pigmented shade – make sure to apply a base coat to prevent staining.

Look out for: GINGER+LIZ colour collection

Hey guys!!!

So I attended some of the festivities during Fashion’s Night Out in NYC.  Could I just say that FNO was just straight insanity!

FNO - Insane!!!

I don’t every remember every seeing that many people on Manhattan Island ever!!! People were just out and about, having a ball! SoHo was unbelievable…People like peas! :-)

One place that I visited was Henri Bendel.  Once inside, I discovered that the GINGER+LIZ counter was offering free polish changes!!! Claro que si, I could not resist!!!!

GINGER+LIZ is a fresh, young, hip , organic nail polish collection and minority-owned business, founded by S. Liz Pickett and H. Ginger Johnson.  It’s luxury on a budget and there is something for everyone.  Personality in a bottle.  So whether you like something bold, chic, sophisticated or laid back, and still grown, G+L’s line totally caters for you.  They are also vegan-friendly and toxin-free (which is becoming more normal nowadays).  They are immensely popular with magazine editors, celebrities and regular folks, and I could absolutely see why!
