Press Sample of the Pahlish
Mukashi Mukashi Collection

Okay so this is about a week late, but I had the initial collection done and swatched on time… and I decided to redo the photos. I wasn’t happy with how they had come out. My hands shake a bit, and the night I did the initial swatches was a particularly bad night and only a few photos came out decently enough to post. So I redid them and I cropped them all yesterday, so here we are with photos that I feel more comfortable posting.

So finally – we’re looking at my swatches and review of the Pahlish Mukashi Mukashi Collection!

The Pahlish Mukashi Mukashi Collection is inspired by Japanese Folklore and Fairytales. I’m sincerely hoping in typing this post I don’t muck up the names.

This set has an assortment of finishes and colors to choose from – and overall they will be around a bit EXCEPT three shades. Shortly after launch, pigments used in 3 of the shades were discontinued. They are still available as of now, but they will not be available as long as the rest. I will mention in each listing for those 3 so you know if they are on your list to grab them.

Okay enough delaying – onto the swatches!

All 10 shades applied beautifully and I love that they all have a certain delicate nature to them.
