Colour Pop Uh-Huh Honey 9-Pan Pressed Powder Palette ($12.00 for 0.36 oz.) is a yellow-themed palette, and as it is monochromatic, it’s not the most versatile palette on its own but should be a great complement to adding pops of yellow to any looks when paired with other palettes in your stash.

I did purposefully omit Palooza, which is a Pressed Glitter and isn’t approved for usage on the immediate eye area, from consideration in the combos!

About This Series

Each look idea is centered around a “quad” of four shades with the expectation that one might bring in the appropriate brow bone or additional transitional shade based on skin tone. I know that I tend to use more like five or six shades in a typical look, but I think that four is a happy medium to give a good idea of the “core” color scheme of a look while giving you the ability to lighten/darken as desired. I have listed the colors in this order: inner lid, middle of lid, outer lid/crease, and crease/above crease.

You might see combinations that seem slightly repeated but placement will vary (e.g. a halo placement where the lightest and more shimmery shade is placed on the center) as placement can also create a different effect/look! You might also want to consider incorporating your favorite matte/shimmer shades (as applicable) to increase the versatility of certain palettes. Consider these ideas a jumping off point!

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.

Sunburst

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.

Sweet Spot

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.

Dandy

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.

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!

Queen B

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.

Totally Buggin’

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.

Oh Beehave

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.

Buzz Kill

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.

ColourPop Uh-Huh Honey Eyeshadow Palette launched earlier this week, and it’s their take on a monochromatic yellow palette. It includes a mix of matte and shimmer shades along with a pressed glitter (which is “not intended for use in the immediate eye area”). Here are swatches!

Warm Honey

Cover FX Warm Honey Monochromatic Blush Duo ($38.00 for 0.51 oz.) contains a satiny, medium brown blush with a more shimmery, peachy-brown blush. The two worked well together with the right side adding shine and luminosity without lightening the left side much. Both shades had good pigmentation, were blendable and easy to use, and lasted for nine hours on me–another winner!

Warm Honey (Left)

Warm Honey (Left) is a muted, medium brown with warm, reddish undertones–more rust than rose–and a satin-matte finish. The consistency was incredibly silky and smooth without having any powderiness, yet was yielding and easy to pick up with a brush. The pigmentation was opaque in one layer, though it was easy to spread and diffuse for less coverage if preferred. It wore well for nine hours on me before fading slightly.

Warm Honey (Right)

Warm Honey (Right) is a soft, peachy brown with warm undertones and a luminous sheen. It’s interesting how shimmery they appear swatched, but the shimmer softens and seems to “melt” when applied and blended out as a cheek color. The blush was smooth to the touch, dense without being too firmly pressed in the pan, and had sat beautifully on my skin without emphasizing my natural texture. It had rich color coverage that adhered well for nine hours on me before showing signs of wear.
