Shell Yeah

ColourPop Shell Yeah 4-Pan Cheek Palette ($18.00 for 0.3 oz.) is a new, limited edition cheek palette that includes an array of shades and finishes. It’s nice to see one that leans a bit darker and more vivid. All four shades performed as expected for the formula; medium to more opaque, buildable coverage depending in application method, blendable, spreadable, and very long-wearing.

Ingredients

Layin’ Out

Layin’ Out is a light-medium, yellow-leaning gold with a smooth, luminous sheen.

  • Medium coverage with brush, semi-opaque coverage with fingertip
  • Smooth, emollient to touch
  • Dried down to powder-like application
  • Blendable, did not lift base products
  • Longer-wearing (9-10 hours is typical)

Formula Overview

$10.00/0.15 oz. – $66.67 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to have “buildable” coverage and can be applied with fingertips (which will yield “higher coverage”) or a brush (for sheerer coverage). It’s a cream-based product that has a subtle, “wet” feel to it but never has the thickness of a true cream-based blush.

It goes on with the smoothness of a cream formulation but diffuses and blends (without lifting up one’s base) more like a powder product. The product sets to a powder finish, so the product won’t slide around during the day.

On me, the wear tends to be between eight and 10 hours. Most shades have medium, buildable pigmentation with some being semi-opaque to opaque on occasion. They are typically blendable, easy to use, and long-wearing.

With Salt

With Salt is a vivid, medium-dark pink base with subtle, warm undertones paired with lighter, brighter gold shimmer and sparkle. It seemed a bit “too pigmented” compared to how the formula is described (and how it typically performs!), which is likely not a deal-breaker for all.

  • Medium coverage with brush, semi-opaque coverage with fingertip
  • Smooth, emollient to touch
  • Dried down to powder-like application
  • Blendable, did not lift base products
  • Longer-wearing (9-10 hours is typical)
