Hi everyone! Today I also have the Pahlish The Life Aquatic Collection to share with you. This is something we haven't seen from Pahlish in awhile, a whole foil flake collection! Per Shannon, this collection was inspired by The Life Aquatic Studio Sessions featuring Seu Jorge, which is a collection of David Bowie songs that Jorge covered in Portuguese for The Life Aquatic Soundtrack. The Life Aquatic Collection launches tomorrow (January 22nd) at 7 PM Central time in the Pahlish shop.
I'll start off with the formula of these because it was consistent across the board. The base of these is jelly, but they are packed with the foil flakes so they build up really easily to opacity in 2 coats. Formula spreads really nicely and is easy to control, so the need for clean-up was very minimal for me. I love a no-nonsense formula! The foil flakes are so reflective and really catch the light nicely. These are my kind of metallic polishes (I still can't get behind the smooth brushstrokey metallics except for stamping purposes).
Team Zissou is a turquoise jelly filled with foil flakes (shown here at 2 coats). This is such a striking shade and I think it will be a very popular one in this collection and it's one of my favorites!
Life on Mars is a copper jelly filled with foil flakes (shown here at 2 coats). This is coppery perfection! Another favorite of mine!
Space Oddity is an pale lilac jelly filled with foil flakes (shown here at 2 coats). Shannon describes this one as an iced lilac, and I think that description fits it perfectly. It's definitely a blue-leaning and cool toned lilac (important to note in comparison to the other purple in this collection).
Rebel Rebel is a soft olive jelly filled with foil flakes (shown here at 2 coats). This is a brighter olive shade and not a dirty olive, and I adore it! Another favorite for me...you know I love my greens!
Lady Stardust is an amethyst purple jelly filled with foil flakes (shown here at 2 coats). This is a warm grapey purple and is the richest shade in the collection. Definitely a contrast to the silvery lilac Space Oddity.
Quicksand is a rose pink jelly filled with foil flakes (shown here at two coats). This one is so shiny and girly! Definitely one that you pink lovers will want to grab!
