The holiday is upon us!  Once again, Zoya comes up with twelve shades that are just apt for the season.  Here are my thoughts and swatches of the Zoya Holiday 2020 Intriguing Collection.


Zoya Isti

Zoya Isti is this season's Pixie Dust color.  This is Zoya's signature glittery texturized formula.  I have to say I LOVE this new and reformulated Pixie Dust compared to the past formulas.  It is not as textured which I really love, and my makeup does not transfer my nails unlike the past Pixie Dust formula.  This is a beautiful wintery blue shade.

Zoya Avi is described as a smoky-greige cream with a hint of red-brown.  It is a dusty red-based purple under direct sunlight and I love the formula - super smooth and self-levels effortlessly.

Zoya Lottie

Zoya Meredith is hands-down my favorite in the collection.  Absolutely beautiful, breathtaking midnight sapphire blue that reminds me of the dark winter sky.  This is one of the best shimmery blues I own, which says a lot, because I own a ton.

Zoya Nico

Zoya Koley is described as a ruby-pink metallic.  I am not a fan of reds in these kinds of finishes.  Looking at the swatches, though, I'd have to say it is quite gorgeous.

My favorites from this collection is Meredith, followed by Nisha and Regina.  The creams behave very nicely and are not finicky at all.  

The Zoya Holiday 2020 Intriguing collection is now up on Zoya.com and retails for $10 a pop.

Target Affordable Finds: Wild Fable Short Sleeve V-Neck Cropped T-Shirt

I have never ever encountered a 5-dollar shirt at Target until I came upon the Wild Fable Short Sleeve V-Neck Cropped T-shirt.  It was not even on clearance, but regularly-priced at $5.  I got the colors black and white, just very basic tops for casual errand days, or for layering under a cardigan since it is getting a wee bit cooler.  This is the most inexpensive clothing piece I've ever bought at Target, and I of course washed it before wearing; no shrinking whatsoever even after putting it in the dryer.  I love that it doesn't pill, and there is no unraveling at the seams either after washing.  


The only con to this item is that it runs quite small.  I am usually an extra-small when I shop at Target, but I am wearing a medium in the photo.  Also, it is very cropped.  I would advise wearing a high-waisted bottom if you don't want your midriff to show.  There is a non-cropped version of this for $8.  Again, for a Target shirt, that is quite a bargain.
