This was the raved about product that everyone was wearing and recommending last year and so I used this as my excuse to buy my first products from Colourpop, of course I ended up with a haul of makeup from them but right now I’m giving my review on the Yes, Please! Eyeshadow palette.
As I said, this was very popular when I ordered it, as were many warm toned palettes, however by the time it arrived I was moving on from warm palettes, and found myself more drawn to the My Little Pony palette that I received in the same order. I was so over warm tones that the first time I used this palette to create a makeup look was for the sole purpose of writing this review, however from that moment on I understood why this was such a popular palette.
The packaging of this palette is basic however it’s what I expected from the price that I paid for it, I don’t mind the cardboard packaging with the reduced cost. There is also no mirror included but that’s also not a deal breaker for me. All of the shades are set nicely into the palette, nothing feels loose, it’s just a small and compact palette that is handy to store and travel with.
As for the actual shadows, I can safely say that on average they are all highly pigmented and wear well on my oily, hooded eyelids without creasing or fading for a whole day.
The mattes pack a punch whilst still blending out well and the shimmers I can apply without a glitter glue and still get a nice effect. If I do use a glitter base or add some setting spray to the shimmers then they will gain an almost metallic edge to them so they’re quite versatile to go from day to night looks.
The only negatives that I’ve picked up on so far is that I can experience some fall out in the pans and when I actually apply the shades. However that is also quite common among many other brands so it’s not a deal breaker for me, I just sweep it away at the end of my makeup.
Overall this a great palette, every shade is nicely pigmented and blends well, the shimmers will perform best with a glitter base as all shimmers do. The only downsides are that there is no mirror which might be annoying and that there can be slight fall out on some of the shades, however neither of those are uncommon with eyeshadow palettes and not a big issue for me. If you are a lover of warm toned eyeshadow than Yes, Please! is for you!
