Side note: I’m not reviewing Zoya Anne.
Why would I mention such a thing? Because I keep trying to. Anne has been, thus far, such an exquisitely balanced mix of promising color and horrid formula that I end up doing this Sisyphean thing with it. And this week (or possibly quarter or more), I do not have the patience for that kind of diva behavior. I’ve started and stripped it at least three times, maybe four.
Today was less panicked and more mildly grumpy. Mr. Fix-it’s out of town all week on business, and it definitely reduces my Fun Human Quotient. A lot.
ANYway. Please meet Anne’s actual well-behaved sister, Zoya Shawn:
It’s an interesting chameleon. Unquestionably muted army-olive in some lights, obviously green in others, oddly in-between and grayer or browner in yet others. But every single one of the color variations suited my fishbelly-white complexion. -_< ?
And, as usual, after a day of looking at it I was bored, so glitter happened.
Pure Ice Saddle Me Up.
Still boring. It’s too close, color-wise! But to repeat: Every single shade of Zoya Shawn on my pasty engineer skin was amazing.
Direct-sunlight pix are worse, FWIW.
Summary! Zoya Shawn is very well-behaved, excellent beside Autumn/Winter colors; Saddle Me Up is a very close match for it and reasonably opaque in 2 coats.
