Colour Pop Uh-Huh Honey 9-Pan Pressed Powder Palette 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.
Colour Pop Stinger Pressed Powder Shadow
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.
Colour Pop Sunburst Pressed Powder Shadow
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. The consistency was soft, blendable, and creamy enough to melt on my skin but wasn’t too dense or thick. It stayed on well for eight hours on me before it creased slightly.
Colour Pop Sweet Spot Pressed Powder Shadow
Sweet Spot is a medium-dark yellow with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had opaque color coverage that adhered well to bare skin with a smooth, even application of color. The consistency was soft to the touch, smooth without becoming powdery, and remained blendable on my skin. It lasted well for eight and a half hours on me before I noticed fading.
Colour Pop Dandy Pressed Powder Shadow
Dandy is a bright, golden yellow with strong, warm undertones and a metallic finish. It had rich color payoff with a creamy, smooth, and blendable texture that felt like it melted against my lid–it was one of the better eyeshadows ColourPop has produced. The eyeshadow wore well for eight hours on me before creasing faintly.
Colour Pop Palooza Pressed Glitter Colour
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!
Colour Pop Queen B Pressed Powder Shadow
Queen B is a rich, deeper gold with strong,w arm undertones and a metallic finish. It had an incredibly creamy, smooth consistency that was rich without being too thick on my skin. The pigmentation was opaque in a single layer, and it stayed on nicely for eight hours before creasing slightly.
Colour Pop Totally Buggin’ Pressed Powder Shadow
Totally Buggin’ is light, yellowed orange with warm undertones and a mostly matte finish. The color payoff was nearly opaque in one layer, while the texture was soft, lightly powdery in the pan, but blendable and not prone to sheering out or having fallout during application. It lasted well for eight hours on me before fading visibly.
Colour Pop Oh Beehave Pressed Powder Shadow
Oh Beehave is a medium-dark yellow with stronger, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had nearly opaque pigmentation with a soft, blendable texture that wasn’t too powdery nor too firmly pressed in the pan. This shade lasted well for eight and a half hours on me before fading noticeably.
Colour Pop Buzz Kill Pressed Powder Shadow
Buzz Kill is a deep, mustardy yellow with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had excellent pigmentation with a soft, slightly thinner consistency that wasn’t too powdery nor too firmly pressed in the pan. The eyeshadow applied well to bare skin and stayed on well for eight hours on me.
