ColourPop Pressed Palettes | Review and Comparison


It's no secret I'm a huge fan of ColourPop. Their pressed shadow formula is amazing, so good for the price. So when they started releasing Fixed Pressed Shadow palettes needless to say I was excited! I have all 3 that they've launched so far. So I thought it was about time I reviewed them.

All the palettes come in the same sturdy cardboard packaging. They're very compact, light and would be ideal to travel with. 



ColourPop Yes Please | $16

This was the first fixed pan palette to be launched and has caused a bit of stir in the beauty community. It is said this is a dupe of the Natasha Denona Sunset palette which is so expensive! The shades in this palette are quite unique and I don't own a similar palette. The shades are:

Full Zip - which is a matte, creamy off White. It's very pigmented and makes a great highlighter shade.

Big Cocktail - this is a matte, warm Orange. It works really well in the crease. The formula is soft and easy to work with.

Champs - a pale Peach. This makes a good crease shade and adds extra dimension to the over eye look.

Bling - is a warm, Reddish, Copper colour. It feels hard in the pan but translates really well onto the lids, giving a really good colour pay off.

Lourie - this is a warm, shimmery Coral colour that leans slightly Coppery. It works really well as a lid colour and has really good pigmentation.

Butter Cake - this a pale shimmery Gold colour.

Spoiled - is a matte, warm brick Red. This is my favourite kind of shade. It works well in the crease and outer v. It's very pigmented, applies evenly and is easy to blend.

GN0 - This is a matte, warm light Orange. It is rich in pigment and is easy to work with.

Mischief - is a bold, matte Yellow. It is so pigmented! This is a great crease and works well with the warm Oranges for a sunset eye look.

Note To Self - this is a medium, warm matte Brown. It makes a really nice transition shade.

Chauffeur - has a frosted finish and is a light Orange. It works well all over the lid or as a bold highlighter.

French Kiss - this is a matte, dark, warm Brown. It works well in the outer v for creating a smokey look.



All the shades in this palette work really well, all are pigmented and easy to work with. They do have a bit of a kick and little fall out but nothing to complain about really. For just $15 this is brilliant value for money. I will get a lot of use out this in the summer months!



ColourPop Fem Rosa She Palette | $16

I brought the whole Fem Rosa Collection because it looked stunning. This palette is part of the collection and I didn't think I would love it as much as I do. Like the Yes Please Palette it contains 12 fixed pans. Most of them are warm tones, with Peaches and Burgundies. The kind of shades are right up my street. The shades are:

Lady Like - this is a light Champagne shade with a shimmer finish. It's really pigmented and makes a good highlighter shade.

Babe - is a pale Pink with a Pearl shimmer finish. To be honest this isn't a shade I will get much use out of.

Dainty - this is a shimmery, Rosey shade. It works well all over the lid and it is super pigmented.

Chick - is a pale Pink with a shimmer finish. Again, this is another shade I don"t get much use out off.

Mademoiselle - is a warm Pink, Coppery kind of shade. It's really pigmented and works well all over the lid.

Gal - Is a warmed toned, Coppery with a shimmery finish. This is one of my favourite shades, it works well all over the lid and really brings the whole look together.

Empress -  This is a deep Mauvey shade with a shimmery finish. Again, another great lid shade. It's really pigmented.

Filly - is a rich burnt Orange colour, with a shimmer finish. Another one of my favourite lid shades.

Dear - this is a Coral shade, with a matte finish. It works really well in the crease, and blends with ease.

Missy -  is a warm, medium Red with a matte finish. This is one of my favourite crease shades in the palette. It applies really well and is so easy to work whilst offering amazing pigmentation.

Damsel - This is a matte, mid to deep Plum colour. It works really well in the outer v and gives an extra depth to the eye look.

Duchess - is light, matte, warm toned Orange. It makes a good crease shade and the texture is really soft and blend-able.



The shades I do love in this palette I really love and find myself reaching for a lot! I just wish there wasn't so many pale colours, because I don't get a lot of use out of those. But the majority of the shadows perform really well and last all day on me! I actually find myself reaching for this over Yes Please which surprised me because I really thought I'd like Yes Please more, but these shades are more wearable and easier to pair together.



ColourPop I Think I love You Palette | $16

As soon as I saw photos of this palette I knew I needed it. Yes needed. I know I have loads of similar ones but these are warm and natural Browns were calling my name. Plus how stunning is the shinny packing! The shades in this palette are:

Better Bitter - which is a warm pale, Orange Gold colour. It applies really well and really pigmented.

Bel Air - this is a mid to light, matte Brown. It makes a really good crease colour. The lasting power, pigmentation and the blend-ability are all perfect.

Fancy Face - is a lovely warm toned Brown, with a shimmery finish. It works really well all over the lid and lasts really well.

Girls Bite - which is a shimmery, Gold Bronze. Again another great lid shade.

Howdy - is a deep Red toned Brown, which is a soft shimmery finish.

Rowdy - is a pale, off White colour with a satin finish. It makes a nice highlighter or base colour all over the lid.

My Treat - this is a light Peach Pink with a shimmer finish.

Level Up - is a beautiful warm, Orange Copper shade with a shimmer finish. This works really all over the lid and really stands out on the lid. It's one of my favourite shades,

Screw It - this is a soft Rose Gold shade, with a shimmer finish. Another great lid shade.

Let's do this - is a matte Black! It's really pigmented but blends out well. It can be used to create a smokey eye look or to line the lashes. It surprisingly doesn't have a lot of fall out either!

Rule Break - this is a Yellow Gold colour, with a shimmer finish. On me it works well all over the lid but this could make a nice highlighter on darker skin tones.

My type - this is a mid to dark, warm toned Brown. It works really well in the crease or outer v.



I think this might be my favourite palette out of the 3. The shadows all have a consistent formula, it's the best formula out of the 3. The shimmers are highly pigmented, and aren't chunky on the lids. The mattes are creamy, soft and blend-able.  For me this palette is the most wearable. It would also suit all eye colours.. Plus it has a matte Black. I think all palettes should have a matte Black, it's just a handy shade to have. All the shadows in the palette perform really well too. If you have a lot of Brown toned palettes you probably don't need this but I don't regret buying it and it's a welcomed addition to my collection.

If I had to pick just one of these palettes I couldn't. Even though Yes Please isn't the most wearable, it's unique and I don't have anything similar in my collection. The She palette is beautiful and even though I don't get much use out of the paler shades, the shades I do use I love! And the I Think I love You Palette has everything I want from a browned palette! Plus the price of them makes them easy to have in my collection. Maybe if I'd payed £40+ for them I'd feel differently.

Have you tried any of these? Which is your favourite?

Until next time...
