ColourPop Uh-Huh Honey Eyeshadow Palette Review & Swatches

Uh-Huh Honey

Colour Pop Uh-Huh Honey 9-Pan Pressed Powder Palette ($12.00 for 0.36 oz.) is the newest addition to the brand’s monochromatic palettes, and is–you guessed it–all about yellow. The eyeshadows performed well across the board with Stinger being slightly chalky and taking more effort to work with; the rest were pigmented, long-wearing, and blendable. Palooza (Pressed Glitter) is consistent with other shades in the formula, but it wasn’t impervious to fallout.

I actually think they missed some takes on yellow, like a soft, buttery yellow; cooler, highlighter yellow; and a deeper, more olive/yellow-leaning brown (almost between mustard yellow and ochre). For me, Sweet Spot and Oh Beehave are a little too close; I get the subtle differences, but I’d rather one swapped for something more dissimilar.

Stinger

Stinger is a medium yellow with strong, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had nearly opaque pigmentation in a single layer, which was buildable over primer but not over bare skin. The texture was soft, lightly powdery, and seemed a touch chalky when I worked with it–the powder didn’t go on as evenly and as seamlessly initially. I was able to get it to sit right on my skin with enough blending. The eyeshadow wore nicely for eight hours on me before fading noticeably.

Formula Overview

$4.50/0.05 oz. – $90.00 Per Ounce

The new Pressed Powder Shadow formula is supposed to be “highly pigmented” with an “ultra-velvety and silky” texture that is “long-wearing” and “adheres easily to the eyes.” Most of the shades have semi-opaque to opaque pigmentation that applies well to bare skin, blends out without issue, and lasts for seven to eight hours. The matte eyeshadows tend to be a little more powdery, though soft and finely-milled, in the pan, while the shimmers have a creamier, dense consistency. Occasionally, the more sparkly or metallic shades apply better with fingertips or a dampened brush.

Sunburst is a bright, golden yellow base with blue-green sparkle over a metallic finish. The eyeshadow had rich pigmentation in a single stroke, which adhered evenly and smoothly to my skin.

Colour Pop Palooza Pressed Glitter

Colour Pop Palooza Pressed Glitter Colour

Palooza

Palooza has a translucent base with an assortment of hexagon-shaped glitter particles that shifted from copper and yellow to yellow and green. I find it’s the exact same color as Puffin, which I was able to catch the shift to copper a bit better. It was loosely-pressed in the pan, and it was easy to pick up more product than desired as a result, so I’d recommend using a lighter hand. It had good adhesion on its own, and it had light fallout over eight hours but was certainly impressive for a glitter-packed product on its own. The product dispersed fairly evenly, too, without dropping fallout.

This product is not intended for use around the immediate eye area, per the brand; when I wear these types of products on my lid, they can cause irritation for me, so I wore this on my lower lash line, which helped prevent fallout into my eye. Most of the product removes with just water, but I find that, as with more glitter, flecks remain here and there even with very, very vigilant removal!
