Colourpop Yes Please palette {Review}

Can anybody keep up with the Colourpop palette releases??? My goodness. I can’t wait to get my hand on a few more, including the Kathleen Lights collaboration, Dream St! Kathleen is one of my favourite You Tubers, and I’ve never bought any of her collabs, so I’m hoping I get my hands on this one so I can support her (and my makeup addiction). Win-win right? Anyways…..I was sitting and staring at the Colourpop Yes Please palette a few days ago and it hit me that I have NEVER reviewed it. How is that even possible? So guess what today’s post is about??? Yip, you guessed it…a review of the Yes Please palette 😉 I’ll also include reviews on some of the other items I purchased with the palette.

Yes Please Palette (RSP $16)

Warm toned palettes have been all the rage in recent months, and Colourpop definitely came to the party with this offering. The Yes Please palette has both matte and shimmer/metallic shades and I personally am obsessed with the colour selection. The orange and red tones…and that yellow….I just love the vibrancy of this palette. A run down of the shades, from top row…left to right:

  • Full-Zip: matte warm ivory
  • Big Cocktails: matte orange
  • Champs: matte pale peachy nude
  • Bling: metallic rust
  • Louie: metallic duochrome red with a gold flip
  • Butter Cake: metallic pale yellow gold
  • Spoiled: matte brick red
  • Gno: matte burnt orange
  • Mischief: matte warm yellow
  • Note to Self: matte warm caramel
  • Chauffeur: metallic duochrome bright orange with a gold flip
  • French Kiss: matte medium chocolate brown

I don’t want this post to be too long, so I’m just going to be giving a brief sort of review. I am just going to say that I LOVE this palette. The mattes all blend beautifully and very well with each other. I have not noticed any patchiness. There is a bit of kick up when you dip your brush in, just be sure to knock off the excess before you apply to your eyelid and you should not have an issue with fallout.

The metallic shades are STUNNING! Best applied with your finger and pressed onto the lid. I have not really tried a brush…as with my shimmer shades, I usually use my finger. The shadows last on my eyes ALL DAY and the colours do not lose their vibrancy in my opinion.

Would I recommend this palette? Hell yes! It’s such a good palette…I can’t praise it enough. If you want to buy it locally, Fashion Police Online has stock. I’ve bought from her before, authentic products and at R400, I don’t think it’s badly priced at all!

Ultra Glossy Lip – Curvii (RSP $6)

I also picked up the Ultra Glossy lip from the ILuvSarahii collection, called Curvii. It’s a light peachy nude in a crème finish. I’ve been looking for something peachy for a while now and I think they pairs beautifully with the Yes Please palette. It’s great to wear either on its own, or over a darker colour.

Brow pencil – Black ‘n Brown (RSP $5)

Their brow products also caught my attention, so I popped that into my cart with this order. It’s pretty dark and the formula is quite waxy in my opinion. The pencil feels like it coats my brows and actually adds quite a bit of volume and perhaps sets it a bit. For the price, I won’t complain too much. There’s a spoolie, something my beloved MAC pencil doesn’t even have. I’m not mad at this pencil for the price, but it’s not my first choice, also I need a lighter colour next time.

Brow Boss Gel – (RSP $6)

The clear brow gel confused me. It’s white and gunky? I thought maybe I got a bad batch or something, because it looks like white sticky glue! I then saw Kathleen mention it in one of her videos…she also didn’t quite get the colour of the ‘brow gel’. This definitely does not feel like a gel. That being said, it works really well.

The con is that it leaves a white film on your brows, so just pat that down and it becomes invisible. This adds a lot of texture and it’s good for getting those ‘feathered’ brows that some people like. Due to the consistency of this formula, I’m not sure how long it will last, as it’s not a lot of product (3.1gms), but when you look at the price, I don’t think I can complain much.

Is there anything on your Colourpop wishlist? Please let me know below. I’m planning a Colourpop giveaway soon, so would love input on what you gals would like to win!
