Colourpop’s YES PLEASE! Palette
Colourpop has always been on top of my most loved (and part of the budget) makeup brands of ALL time in terms of eyeshadow palettes. And I’m very pleased to announce that I’m just starting to get all obsessed over the YES PLEASE! Palette ( a whole year after it was officially released to the market). That’s how late I am to this beauty game.
This darling right here has the almost-perfect size to be travel-friendly. Packaging is definitely CUTE AF (see what I did there?). It’s not flimsy at all and I love the texture of this pan. But it would’ve been awesome if it has a mirror attached inside or a brush. One of the things that annoy me is an eyeshadow palette with no mirror. It would’ve been easier to apply eyeshadow without fumbling to look for a mirror.
In terms of pigmentation, these 12 shades of warm neutrals in a mix of mattes and shimmers didn’t disappoint. It definitely reminds me so much of the Morphe 35O palette. But this one looks like it has all the good shades from the 35 O. It is highly pigmented, super blendable and feels ultra silky/buttery smooth despite being a pressed powder. PLUS, no fallouts and doesn’t budge upon application. I only noticed that using your fingers to apply the shimmers are much better and would look more foiled than using a brush. But if you’re not comfortable with that, you can spritz some setting spray on your brush to have the same result.
I’m currently going gaga over makeup looks that have more reds, oranges and yellows. I think it compliments my eyes and my skin tone so much. I used to feel so intimidated on these range of colours because I always stick to something simple like the brown hues. So, having these shades on the palette is crazy good because I am able to experiment more on colours. And it’s so fun to play around with. I love mixing and matching French Kiss, Note to Self, Spoiled, and Butter Cake together. They’re the perfect shades to use especially during fall and I’m totally be using them more for fun Halloween makeup looks soon.
Also, I love that it has all the shades you need to create simple everyday makeup looks to fun, glamorous fall looks. It’s definitely a palette that you’d see yourself picking up almost too often because it has almost everything (except for a highlighter).
Is it worth the buck? For 16 dollars, absolutely!
