I was not the only one that got overly excited when I saw that Colourpop released their first proper eyeshadow palette. The smaller shadow palettes with four shades in each was always too bulky for my taste, and I would just have popped the eyeshadows out an put them in a pan. But Colourpop decided to finally make a proper palettes and release “Yes Please” and off course they sold out very quickly. I managed to get my hands on one eventually (I collected all three palettes they released actually) and I am sure it will be back in stock again eventually for all of you waiting for it.
The matte shades are really smooth and buttery and in terms of quality I think they are a bit better than the metallic shades. The metallics are not bad either, they are just a bit chunky and I found that they apply best with the fingers or a damp brush. Then they really pack a punch!
I did this summery cut-crease using this palette alone. It has a very good composition of colors with base shades, crease shades and pretty lid shades. As always I miss a really dark matte when the palette does not have any like this, but to be honest I don’t really need a dark matte for every look and I got plenty of them in my collection anyways so no hard feelings!
For this look I used Full Zip as a base color to set my eyeshadow primer and even out the skin tone of my lid, then I used Big Cocktails in the crease and blended it out with Champs. French kiss was used to define the cut crease and I also smudged it on my lower lashline. Butter Cake (this one I found easier to tap on with my finger) is the lid color and Chauffeur is used to bling up the inner corner. The rest of the makeup for this look is Makeupgeek gel liner “Immortal”, Anastasia dipbrow in “Medium Brown” and a bronze eyeliner pencil from KIKO Glamorous Eye Pencil in 403.
This is a great palette if you want something to create those summery sunset looks you find everywhere during summer. or just a happy cut-create like this. And nothing beats the 16 $ price tag!
