Hello beautiful babes! If you are like me and are not always able to splurge on make-up, affordable products are a must, but drugstore products do not always deliver. However, if you know Colourpop, you know they are not only affordable but also have some really great products in their online shop. Today I will talk about a palette of theirs, called Yes Please!, tell you my thoughts and show you a look with it, so keep reading!
Packaging + Price
Colourpop is known for being very affordable. This palette was only 16$ and you get 12 shades of 0.85g, which is a little bit less than average I would say, but still a decent amount. (The shades in most of the palettes I own are around 1g).
As far as the packaging goes, it is really lightweight, compact and made of carton. I prefer that my palettes have little mirrors in them, this one doesn’t, but I guess that is why they can keep the price so low. So, honestly, it doesn’t bother me, because it is an affordable product.
I have played around with this palette a few times now, and all the shades are Colourpop quality, meaning they are pigmented and easy to blend. They are a litte bit powdery, but I do not find that a problem personally. There is a whole variety of shades in here, so you can make really bold looks, but also go for more natural looks. There is a nice amount of matte shades, which is really important because I only want to use shimmer on my lid and not anywhere else. At the same time, the palette also has 4 different shimmer shades, so you can create a whole array of looks, from day time neutral to night time party-ready!
The names of the shades are on the back of the palette. It does confuse me, though, because I am always unsure how to read the shade names. Do they correspond with the color on that spot or do you have to mirror them? (If you understand what I mean). So I would prefer the names under the colors as to not cause confusion.
As far as the longevity of the eyeshadows goes, I have had no problem with it and they seem to stay on very nicely during the day/evening. They also do not have any fall-out, not while applying and also not during the day.
I swatched the colors row by row, and put the photos in order of the rows.
Just look at how gorgeous that shimmer orange-golden shade is though!!
Lastly, I decided to create a look for you guys, to show how they work on the eyes. I only used the mattes of this palette on my eyes, nothing else.
I really recommend this palette. It has such gorgeous colors in there, so you can do a neutral day-time look, but also opt for something more bold. The eyeshadows are of very good quality, they blend nicely and they are pigmented. So, if you are looking for a more affordable eyeshadow palette, but do not want to compromise on quality, go take a look at Colourpop’s range of eyeshadows/eyeshadow palettes.
