Happy Monday! And it is Christmas week! Is anyone excited? I know I am so looking forward to the party tomorrow with my family and relatives at my cousin’s house. There will be a sumptuous meal and the exchanges of presents! As much as how commercialised and cliché it is, who doesn’t love receiving presents?
Pahlish is a new-to-me brand that took me a while to buy and try. I am apprehensive about trying new-to-me brands especially if they are new in the market for fear that the formula may not be great and I may end up wasting money on it. I am glad that I took the leap of faith and try out Pahlish as they are pretty much established in the indie market and their products are well made.
I have two colours that are well suited for Fall and the holidays to show you – Blood Of The Mountain and El Topo Petit.
Blood Of The Mountain is a garnet red holo base with micro flakes. Application was a breeze and only needed 2 coats. I don’t normally go for red but if I have to garnet red would be my favourite choice. This is so gorgeous that I couldn’t stop staring at it.
El Topo Petit is a dusty taupe with coppery red micro flakes. Taupe is an intriguing colour. Sometimes you think it is grey, sometimes it is brown or it could be mistaken for a greyish purple too. Formula is great with 2 flawless coats. I really love the subtle micro flakes peeking through the dusty base. It kinda reminds me of the fallen leaves during the Fall. The micro flakes glisten more in the sunlight.
I really love these and can’t wait to swatch the rest of my Pahlish stash to show you.
