See what I did there? Anyway, if you hadn’t already guessed, this post is going to be all about a new addition to my makeup collection, the ColourPop Cosmetics Uh-Huh Honey 9 pan pressed pigment palette. If you want to know all the tea on this palette, then keep on reading!
About The Palette
This beautiful monochromatic yellow palette just screams summer to me. You obviously get 9 shades; 5 mattes, 3 shimmers and 1 glitter. A quick side note, the glitter is marked as ‘unsafe to use on eyes’ which is pretty standard for all glitters. It is up to you on whether you heed that warning or not. For testing purposes I did use it on my eyes, but I will talk more about that later. It can be purchased on the ColourPop website for $12 USD (approx. $16 AUD), which means you are only paying about $1.80 AUD per pan!
Similar to other 9 pan palettes, this one comes in a sturdy and adorably designed plastic case with just the name printed on the front. Not as cute as others, but simple is always appreciated. On the inside, I am so happy to say that there is a large, high-quality mirror and the shade names are also printed underneath each shade AND on the back of the palette itself. This makes it perfect for travel, if only having yellow shades is your type of thing. I love that all their 9 pan palettes are including these much appreciated details.
Stinger is a matte pastel yellow shade.
Sunburst is a metallic golden yellow shade.
Sweet Spot is a true yellow shade with a matte finish.
Dandy is a bright golden yellow with a metallic finish.
Palooza is a yellow/green glitter shade.
Queen B is a rich gold shade with a metallic finish.
Totally Buggin’ is a light yellow/orange shade with a matte finish.
Oh Beehave is a deep matte yellow shade.
Buzz Kill is a deep mustard yellow shade with a matte finish.
I really do love the idea of these 9 pan monochromatic palettes. If you have one colour that you absolutely love wearing, then pick that one up and boom, you have everything you need. ColourPop eyeshadows are also some of my favourites, formula wise that it. They really know how to get a stunning smooth shimmer/metallic shade and their matte formula has improved so much over the years. Their mattes generally aren’t too dry and they blend very nicely over the eye without skipping or fading into nothing. My favourite shade in this palette would have to be Sunburst. It is the most beautiful metallic I have seen, and it works great all over the lid or as an inner corner highlight.
Would I change anything about this palette? Yeah, there are a few things actually. The shades Stringer and Totally Buggin’ are super similar when swatched, as well as Sweet Spot and Oh Behave. Also, the shade Buzz Kill is well, a bit of a buzz kill. I find it too light to deepen any of the shades up, so perhaps a deeper shade would have been better off in its place. Now let’s have a quick chat about the glitter shade in this palette. I am not the biggest fan of pressed glitters, or glitters in general. I find them to be super hard to work with and pretty damn messy. Palooza is a beautiful shade, there is no doubting that. However, it is so chunky that I was a little worried about using it on my eye area (and yes, I know they say ‘not eye safe’ but come on, how else would you use it?). This is a shade that I will probably never get any use out of so it may have been nice for a yellow duochrome or another complimentary shade to take its place. But hey, that’s just me.
What do you think about the ColourPop Uh-Huh Honey palette? Have you tried any of the other 9 pan monochromatic palettes? Make sure you leave me a comment and let me know 🙂
That’s all for now Beauties!
