I am sure we all have heard by now of the Colourpop Yes Please Eyeshadow Palette. I was lucky enough to get my hands on it before it sold out. In a matter of about and hour, even the Colourpop girls said they were not expecting it to sell out so fast.
When I first saw the name on the palettes. The Colourpop Yes Please Eyeshadow palette says ” CUTE AF” we soon found out that those weren’t the official names. So just keep that in mind, ’cause I am sure some are a little confused by that.
Colourpop, released 3 items in what I would call the “neon collection” that is not the official name. But, that is what the packaging reminds me of. They released the Yes Please Eye Shadow Palette, Gimme More Highlight Palette and lastly a Large empty palette. These items are all limited edition, so when they come back in stock. I would grab all 3 of the items.
The re-launch of the Colourpop Yes Please Pressed Powder Shadow Palette, as well as the Gimme More Highlighting Palette will be on the 7th of July 2017.
The Colourpop Yes Please Eyeshadow Palette contains 12 eyeshadows. 10 shadows are brand new while 2 shadows (Note to Self & Full Zip) are available as singles on their website.
The shadows in this palette speak to my warm and fiery soul. To me this is a palette that is amazing for the summer time as well as the winter months. Especially if you are into these types of shades.
These shadows are highly pigmented shadows. They apply evenly feel ultra-velvety and silky. I will say that some of the shadows are a little powdery. Some might have an issue with that, but they apply really well on the eyes.

I love the approach Colourpop took with putting the shadow names on the back of the palette. Which, I thin is a great idea. Especially when palettes insert that sleeve that usually contains the names. 9 times out of 10 we lose. Or they don’t even names printed on the palette. They can take the approach of just putting it on the back.
The swatches I did below I used the Colourpop Flat Shader Brush. The Colourpop brushes aren’t currently in stock on their website. Not sure if they will release these any time soon.
I opted to do brush swatches, because I felt that these eye-shadows apply better with makeup brushes than finger swatches.
If you have seen the Natasha Denona Sunset Palette, you would have seen how similar it looks to the Colourpop Yes Please palette. Natasha Denona, palettes retail for $129.00, where the Colourpop Yes Please palette retails for $16.00.
