Zoya Fall 2014: Naturel Deux (2) Collection Swatches, Review

Press sample


Zoya Naturel Deux (2) Collection L-R: Spencer, Chanelle, Emilia, Madeline, Aubrey, Marney

Fall is almost here!  As much as I love wearing neon and bright and pastel colors that herald spring and summer, I miss wearing dark, neutral, vampy shades that all scream fall and winter.  I've posted swatches of the first Zoya Naturel collection that came out late last year, but this time, Zoya comes up with more varied shades of browns, berries and dark chocolate brown to celebrate the coming of cooler weather.

Here are my swatches of the Zoya Naturel Deux (2) collection, and my thoughts on them.

Zoya Spencer

Zoya Spencer is a camel cream which is fully opaque in two coats.  I love how clean this looks on the nails.  Looks very professional and classy.  Definitely a perfect office color.




Zoya Chanelle

Zoya Chanelle is a milk chocolate cream that is also opaque in two coats.  On my skin tone, this stands out better than Zoya Spencer.  This is also an office-friendly color, and if you think browns are boring, you can always spruce it up with a glitter topper or nail stamp art.



Zoya Madeline

Zoya Madeline is described as a muted rose cream.  This is what some people may think of as a "mom color" or "old lady color", but I actually find it really pretty and is one of my favorites from this collection.



Zoya Aubrey

Zoya Aubrey is described as a mid-tone mauve, but almost a berry to my eyes.  It is also fully opaque in two coats.  It is semi-vampy to me, so I am also liking this color.



Zoya Marney

Zoya Marney (or Marnie) is a deep warm plum.  It is almost like a raisin color in the shade.  It is also a full-coverage cream.




Zoya Emilia

Zoya Emilia







Zoya Emilia is a dark chocolate cream with a full coverage formula.  It kinda looks greenish grey under certain lighting conditions.  I love how edgy and vampy it looks.

All in all, I think I am liking the color choices in the Zoya Naturel (2) color compared to the first Naturel collection.  My favorites are definitely Chanelle, Emilia and Madeline.

What are your favorite colors from this collection?

The Zoya Naturel Deux (2) collection is now available on www.zoya.com and retails for $9 each.
