Product 411: ColourPop Yes, Please! and She Pressed Powder Shadow Palettes

I've already expressed my affection for the ColourPop Pressed Powder Shadows so I was pretty excited when they came out with larger shadow palettes that contained 12 shadows.

There's not much point in a doing a full blown review of these palettes, though, because the shadow formula is essentially the same as the single shadows, but I did think it might help folks who are on the fence about them to do a quick little rundown with some swatches.

At the moment, both the Yes, Please! and She Palettes are out of stock, but ColourPop has been restocking them pretty regularly, so if you're interested, keep an eye out.

Both palettes come in sturdy cardboard packaging without a mirror on the inside.

Yes, Please! comes in white packaging with yellow and orange details, though the artwork is pretty minimalist.

Its color range is all warm yellows, golds, reds, and orange tones.

The shades include: Full-Zip, a matte warm ivory; Big Cocktails, a matte orange; Champs, a matte pale peach; Bling, a metallic rust; Louis, a metallic duochrome red with gold shift; Butter Cake, a metallic light yellow gold; Spoiled, matte brick; Gno, a matte burnt orange; Mischief, a matte warm yellow; Note to Self, a matte warm caramel; Chauffeur, a metallic duochrome bright orange with gold shift; and French Kiss, a matte dark reddish brown.

The color range for this palette is also pretty warm, but the tones are more pink, mauve, plum, and peachy shades.

The shadows include: Ladylike, a metallic ivory; Babe, a light peachy pink satin; Dainty, a metallic pinky taupe; Chick, a metallic soft gold; Mademoiselle, a metallic rose gold; Gal, a metallic red with copper shift; Empress, a metallic mid-tone pink plum; Filly, a metallic rusty orange; Dear, a matte warm rose; Missy, a matte deep burgundy; Damsel, a matte smokey violet; and Duchess, a matte dusty coral.

Personally, I think both palettes are stunning. All of the warm tones have been lovely for summer, but they'll be just as pretty in fall and winter.

As I mentioned, the shadows are easy to work with, just like ColourPop's single pressed shadows -- and the palettes retail for just $16, which is a real bargain, if you ask me.

(Though I will point out that the pans in these palettes are smaller than the single shadow pans.)

I would recommend either (or both!), depending on which color range speaks to you more.

For me, the She Palette feels a bit more wearable, but I enjoy the Yes, Please! Palette plenty too.

You can get both on the ColourPop website (when they're in stock).

Have you tried the ColourPop Yes, Please! and/or She Pressed Powder Shadow Palette? Are you a fan?
