I hope you’re doing well? I’ve actually had this palette in my collection for nearly 2 months now and only just started playing around with it a few weeks ago. The Colourpop Yes Please palette was my final Ulta purchase whilst in the US. I don’t have another palette like this in my collection but something about the shades was so warm and fun that I wanted it. Frustratingly, this brand is near impossible to get hold of in the UK, if you buy direct from the website you’ll pay a tonne for shipping and risk paying another import fee on its arrival. You can pick this up from Amazon but you’ll be looking at a £40 receipt for a product that is literally $16… If you are desperate enough to pay these prices (I’m not judging) maybe check sites like Gumtree/eBay to see if someone is selling one which is nearly new.
The original packaging for this product included a cardboard sleeve which had the palette name “Yes Please” but on front of the actual product the words “Cute AF” are embossed – this inconsistency in packaging seems a little weird to me and something I straight up didn’t love about the palette. Being negative first, another downside is that the packaging has no mirror making it harder to travel with despite the fact that product is light weight and small which is usually ideal. However, the lack of mirror probably won’t be a deal breaker for most people – so I’m not hating on that to much.
The warm tonnes in this palette are what drew me in particular the orange and yellows which really throw me out of my comfort zone. The packaging doesn’t have shade names on the front but they are printed on the back – looking online some palettes do seem to have the names printed on the front so perhaps I got an old one? The shade names are quite fun and quirky which I think is expected with this palette, the names are as follows (working from left to right); Full Zip, Big Cocktails, Champs, Bling, Louie, Butter Cake, Spoiled, GNO, Mischief, Note To Self, Chauffeur and French Kiss. Within the 12 pan palette there are 8 mattes and 4 shimmers.
Swatches! I decided to just swatch 5 of the shades that really stood out to me being sure there were both matte and shimmer examples. The fiery orange shimmer is so stunning as are the pink tonned mattes. The yellow matte is slightly more disappointing but definitely not bad. Overall I’d say the pigmentation is easily good if not great, better than Drugstore but not quite Highend. They all feel smooth and buttery to when touched with my finger which hopefully means they’ll blend out well and create seamless eye looks.
Here is the first look I created using the palette! I love how this spotlight shimmer, sunset vibe look turned out. It pushed me hard out of my comfort zone as I have never played with bright oranges and yellows before but I think that this is a really cool look. You can see a full look tutorial in my most recent post. Now I just need to work out where/when I could actually wear this, still to daring as an everyday look for me!

Yes Please Bare in mind that this palette is super hard to get hold of in the UK… I’ve found it on Amazon for £40 which is crazy as this usually retails for $16. But you will get free shipping and there is no risk of extra custom charges when it arrives which there could be from sites like Ulta.
