So for the comparison, it is clear that Urban Decay's staying power is stronger. However, Urban Decay labeled theirs waterproof, which makes sense that it would stay around and theBalm's did not label theirs waterproof. I like the matte finish of Schwing, but since I have very watery eyes, and my eyes get watery throughout the day, I think Schwing would not last long on me. This is my second Urban Decay liner because the first one I had, it stung my eyes when I had it on. Maybe the first one I had was a bad batch because the second one I got a tried did not burn my eyes like the first one I got. I would recommend theBalm's Schwing liner for someone who does not have watery eyes. Both of these liquid liners contain 1.7mL of product. theBalm's Schwing liner retails for $17 and Urban Decay's 24/7 liner retails for $19. What do you think of Schwing? Own it? Like it? Let me know! :)

Overall, I like how easy it was to apply Flirty Tankini and I like the color, but Flirty Tankini stained! Even though I used two coats of base coat and waited until it was completely dry, Flirty Tankini stained my nails into a bright pink, which was very unflattering. Orly's Glowstick did not stain my nails at all, which was surprising since it was a yellow, I kind of expected it to stain. Glowstick required four coats for me because it was on the sheer side, but taking it off was easier than Flirty Tankini was as well. Although I like Flirty Tankini, I do not like the staining, which may keep me from wearing it as much. I kind of wish I used Glowstick for the rest of my fingers and Flirty Tankini as an accent, but now, I know that I should probably use another color under Firty Tankini to try to prevent it from staining.

Overall, I do not think this collection is bad at all. Cream finishes are one of my favorite finishes as well, which is probably why I like it. Unlike other cream finish nail polishes I have tried, I did not feel like these were hard to apply. The formula on these were smooth & consistent. Besides Rekha, I used two coats for the rest of the collection. A lot of these probably would not need more than that. This was also the first time where I felt like some Zoya's dried faster on me. Maybe since it required less coats, the drying time was faster? These dry glossier than the Diva collection, but less glossy than the Gloss collection.
These are available for purchase on Zoya.com now, and they retail for $8 per 0.5oz bottle.
