Colourpop’s Yes Please palette won Nylon’s 2017 Beauty Award for best eyeshadow palette and the love of countless fans, including me, for good reason. It comes as no surprise that I fell for this palette as I’ve professed my love for Colourpop before on this blog. This one of the many things I generously gifted myself for Christmas. What can I say? No one knows me better.
The creaminess, blendability, and pigmentation is insane for the price. For $16 you get 12 gorgeous high quality extremely wearable eyeshadows. You really can’t lose.
All the shades are warm and in the red, brown, orange family and though there are a lot of palettes out with this shade range I still think this one is unique for it’s quality and the individual shades, which are outstanding.
The shades are described as being inspired by the golden hour of the day and they definitely do it justice. Both the matte and metallic shades are gorgeous. You almost can’t help but dip into it. You can do both natural and glam looks and go from day to night easily. I did a sunset smoky eye and can’t wait to do more with it.
To start off I primed my eyes as usual with concealer. I used Wet n Wild’s Photo Focus concealer. I then dusted the first color in the palette, the matte warm ivory color, Full Zip, on the lids to set them. I also used it to highlight my brow bone and it worked perfect for that.
The first color I used as transition was Champs, a matte pale peachy nude. This shade reminds me of Magical in the Dream St. Palette. That shade is more orangey yellow though while this one’s pinkier. I love both as I love using peachy shades in the crease. I then intensified the entire crease and outer v with the matte caramel color, Note to Self. I am a sucker for colors like these. They’re so wearable and useful.
I used Mischief, the matte yellow, in the inner half of the eye and packed it on with a flat brush then went in again with my finger for more intensity. I used Gno, the matte burnt orange and French Kiss, to further smoke out and define the outer v. I also used those shades on the lower lash line.
I also used the matte brick red shade, Spoiled, to transition out of the yellow shade into the browns. The only color I used that isn’t in this palette is Colourpop’s Super Shock shadow, Telepathy, a collab with Kathleen Lights, on the inner corner and inner bottom lash line. It is a gorgeous super metallic chartreuse golden shade.
The super shock shadow formula is like nothing else I’ve ever tried. It’s like a cushion and I’m so in love with this shade. As an added bonus, if you’re clumsy like me and prone to dropping shadows, these don’t break due to the putty like formula. For lashes I used They’re Real by Benefit.
For lips I’m wearing Aquarius Lippie Stix and Moonchild Ultra Glossy Lip also by Kathleen. Love both and I’ve been wearing them on repeat.
I love that both of these formulas are moisturizing and don’t create flakes on your lips unlike a lot of other brands do. I’ve tried tons of lippies and I love the look of matte lips but I can only wear it if I load on lip balm beforehand. I have extremely dry lips so I think it’s awesome that the lippie stix creme formula has moisturizing ingredients like she’s butter and vitamin E.
On a side note, I tried Wet n Wild’s brow pencil for the first time and it actually worked great! The pigment is intense with one swipe and creamy, which I liked, and the spoolie worked well. I can’t say I’m surprised because Wet n Wild is outstanding, but for $2, all I can say is how do they do it?
I love you guys and I hope you enjoyed this tutorial and review of Yes Please. What palette have you been lusting after?
Hope you all had a fabulous New Year’s Eve and a fantastic start to the new year.
