Pink Week: Pahlish Sugar Venom

Continuing this week on behalf of Breast Cancer Awareness, I have swatches of a fabulously fun pink, Pahlish Sugar Venom, from the Pahlish Coney Island Queen Collection.

I knew I was going to like Pahlish Sugar Venom, but I had no idea how much! The metallic red glitter is wonderfully suspended in the bright pink base, and the formula layers up very well. After a somewhat patchy first coat, the second actually built to plenty of opacity for daily wear, but I hit it with a third for the camera. I'm also impressed that while building so well, the crelly base still manages to allow the bits of glitter to peek through the coat above, giving it all a gorgeously rich density without getting even the slightest bit chunky. It's quite a balancing act, and Pahlish has pulled it off beautifully.

This is actually an interesting shade of pink to try to nail down. It's bright as bubblegum but with a hint of softness. Neon-adjacent without going garish, and while it's nowhere near pastel it still manages to make me think of smoothies and strawberry yogurt. Based on how very happy I am with Pahlish Sugar Venom, I'm definitely going to look into more of the Coney Islands!

Pahlish can be purchased at Pahlish.com and Llarowe.


As I mentioned, several bloggers have joined together for this Pink Week, hoping to encourage breast cancer awareness and to share information. One staggering breast cancer statistic is that 1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with this disease. However, the "1 in 8" refers to a woman's risk over the course of her entire lifetime--her later years contain that highest risk. In her 20s, the figure will be much lower than that, but it can and does strike women of all ages. Please talk to your physician about your risk factors and what early detection screening approach she recommends.
