ColourPop Proceed with Caution Eyeshadow Palette Review & Swatches

Proceed with Caution

Colour Pop Proceed with Caution 9-Pan Eyeshadow Palette includes an array of neutrals with a pop of yellow. There is a mix of shimmers and mattes and a good range of depth, so it should be a versatile palette. The shimmers were more loosely-pressed, which can give them a drier feel and need to be pressed and patted onto the lid or else applied with a fingertip or wet brush to maximize coverage and minimize fallout. The mattes performed well, except for the yellow shade which was decent but as most matte yellow eyeshadows, it did need a primer to perform well.

Proceed

Proceed is a soft, pale yellow with warm undertones and a matte finish. The pigmentation was opaque in a single layer, while the eyeshadow had a smooth, velvety texture that blendable and easy to work with. There was a touch of powderiness in the pan, but it applied evenly and didn’t sheer out too quickly. It lasted well for eight hours before showing signs of fading on me.

Maintenance

Maintenance is a medium-dark burgundy with strong, warm undertones and a matte finish. It was richly pigmented with a soft, velvety texture that was a smidgen powdery in the pan but applied well to bare skin without sheering out. It stayed on nicely for eight and a half hours before fading a bit.

 

Colour Pop Dead End Pressed Powder Shadow

Dead End

Dead End is a medium gold with strong, warm undertones and a sparkling, frosted finish. It had good color coverage in a single layer but was best applied with fingertips or a dampened brush in order to get maximum sparkle, shine, and depth. On its own with a dry brush, there was some fallout during application and took longer to get it to adhere evenly to my lid. The consistency was more softly pressed and felt a touch dry to me (which may have owed to the amount of larger sparkles in it). The color wore well for eight hours on me but had slight fallout over time.

Warning

Warning is a medium orange with warm undertones and a sparkling, metallic finish. The color payoff was nearly opaque in one layer, while the texture was softer but more textured from the sparkles, so there was a little bit of fallout during application. I would recommend applying this shade with a fingertip or a wet brush to help the product adhere smoothly and avoid fallout, though. It lasted for just over eight hours on me before I noticed any fading.

HZRD

HZRD is a deep, taupe brown with subtle, cool undertones and warmer flecks of shimmer. It had semi-opaque pigmentation with a more softly pressed texture that felt drier and worked best when applied with fingertips or a wet brush. The skin on my arm is drier, and I had trouble with the product adhering as well, whereas my lid is more normal and the product applied better there. It stayed on well for eight hours on me before I noticed fading.

 

Caution

Caution is a rich, medium-dark yellow with moderate, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had good pigmentation but had a more powdery, slightly chalky consistency that caused it to sheer out to more semi-opaque coverage on bare skin. Over more silicone-based primer, it performed decently and was buildable, but for a real pop of yellow, I’d recommend a slightly tacky base or a white base. It wore well for eight hours on me before fading noticeably.

Drill

Drill is a medium-dark copper with warm undertones and a pearly sheen. The color payoff was fantastic, while the eyeshadow had a smooth, lightly creamy texture that wasn’t too softly nor too firmly pressed. It lasted well for eight and a half hours before showing signs of fading.

Culture

Culture is a soft brown with moderate, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had good color coverage that adhered evenly to bare skin and blended out nicely. The consistency was soft, silky, and a smidgen powdery in the pan but not prone to sheering out or having fallout during application. It stayed on well for eight hours before fading a bit on me.

Gloves On

Gloves On is a blackened brown with subtle, warm undertones and flecks of red micro-shimmer strewn throughout. It appeared more matte in person than satiny, but the fine shimmer seemed to ensure blendability. It was intensely pigmented where a little went a very long way, so I highly recommend using a lighter hand with this shade to avoid over-application. The consistency soft and silky, but if I wasn’t careful to pick up less, there was some fallout (again, almost “too” pigmented in that way!). It wore nicely for eight hours before fading slightly on my skin.
