Zoya’s Masquerade collection

Another pack of semisheer polishes, so not something I was originally interested in (though I did go back and forth over Lillith, because just about any duochrome will catch my attention.) I finally decided to get Celeste when I saw Scrangie’s swatches, and decided to add Stella to my hoard. Lilith is gorgeous!! If you’re at all into hot pink polishes, you need this one in your life (trust me.) Celeste is a lovely subtle silver-white that can either be used as an FX topcoat, or by itself…you’ll just need several coats unless you want a French-manicure effect. Stella is a rich pinup red with a high-gloss finish. I don’t know that I’d call it metallic…but Zoya’s always been a bit more liberal with that term than I personally would like. Gabrielle is striking, but not a color that I’d wear. Roxy is a microglitter polish, and a warm purple to boot. I prefer my purples cool! Bebe is nice enough, but…semisheer soft pink? Not all that thrilling to me. I can think of lots of people who would love it, though (any hardcore girly-pink fan will probably enjoy that shade.)

This collection contained:

  • Bebe — semisheer metallic cool pink shimmer
  • Celeste — semisheer silver-white pearl
  • Gabrielle — semisheer golden orange sparkle
  • Lillith — magenta duochrome shimmer
  • Roxy — red-purple sparkle
  • Stella — metallic blue-red shimmer

As of August 2011, all of these colors are still available from Zoya.com. I haven't been able to find out when this collection was released, but I think it must have been before spring 2007, at the latest.
