ColourPop Proceed with Caution Palette Makeup Look Ideas (x10)

Colour Pop Proceed with Caution 9-Pan Eyeshadow Palette ($12.00 for 0.36 oz.) includes an array of neutrals with a pop of yellow. I think you can get several distinct looks out of it, but the secret to getting more out of this palette is layering the shimmers and mattes together to create more variation–like Caution with Dead End or Drill with Maintenance.

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!

ColourPop Main Squeeze Eyeshadow Palette Review & Swatches

Main Squeeze

Colour Pop Main Squeeze 9-Pan Pressed Powder Palette ($12.00 for 0.36 oz.) is the newest in ColourPop’s monochromatic series. The palette includes three true shimmers, one satin, and five mattes. Most of the eyeshadows were very pigmented, blendable, and long-wearing. The shades ran together a little more than in past palettes, and I think the palette would benefit from being paired with some brighter, lighter shimmers or a matte black or blackened burgundy.

As a FYI, Home Slice and Like It’s Hot are “not intended for use in the immediate eye area.”

Frose

Frose is a rich, pink-coral with warm undertones and a matte finish. I found that it went on a bit darker and warmer compared to the way it appeared in the palette. The texture was soft, lightly dusty in the pan, but it applied well and blended out nicely without losing its intensity on my lid. It had opaque color coverage that stayed on well for eight and a half hours before fading visibly.

Formula Overview

$4.50/0.05 oz. - $90.00 Per Ounce

The new Pressed Powder Shadow formula is supposed to be “highly pigmented” with an “ultra-velvety and silky” texture that is “long-wearing” and “adheres easily to the eyes.” Most of the shades have semi-opaque to opaque pigmentation that applies well to bare skin, blends out without issue, and lasts for seven to eight hours. The matte eyeshadows tend to be a little more powdery, though soft and finely-milled, in the pan, while the shimmers have a creamier, dense consistency. Occasionally, the more sparkly or metallic shades apply better with fingertips or a dampened brush.

Home Slice is a bright, medium red with subtle, warm undertones and a satin sheen. The color coverage was opaque in one layer, which applied evenly to bare skin but took a little bit of extra care to diffuse along the edges.

Like It's Hot

Like It’s Hot is deep, coral-red with warm undertones and a matte finish. The color payoff was opaque in one pass, which adhered well to bare skin and blended out easily along the edges. The texture was soft, a touch drier and thinner, but it wasn’t grainy as some reds can be. It stayed on well for eight and a half hours before I noticed any fading, though it did leave a slight stain behind.

Maraschino

Maraschino is a medium red with warm undertones and warmer, golden-peach sparkle. It had medium pigmentation and was best applied with a fingertip or a dampened brush for better adhesion, pigmentation, and to help minimize fallout. The texture was drier and more loosely-pressed, and there was fallout when applied with a dry brush. It lasted for just over eight hours on me before I saw fading, and there was a touch of fallout over time (used dry).

Big Gulp

Big Gulp is a deep orange with warm, red undertones and a matte finish. The pigmentation was nearly opaque one layer, which was easily built up to full coverage with less than half of a layer on top. The texture was soft without being powdery, blendable, and adhered well without darkening or becoming patchy. It wore well for eight and a half hours on me before fading slightly.

Seed Money is a medium-dark, coppery orange with warm, red undertones and a matte finish. It had nearly opaque color payoff that applied well to bare skin, as it went on evenly and didn’t sheer out too readily. The texture was soft, blendable, and easy to work with and wasn’t too powdery nor too firmly pressed in the pan. It stayed on well for eight and a half hours before showing signs of fading.

Hourglass Canvas, Cosmic, Horizon Unreal High Shine Volumizing Lip Glosses Review & Swatches

Canvas

Hourglass Canvas Unreal High Shine Volumizing Lip Gloss ($30.00 for 0.2 oz.) is a medium, rosy pink with warm undertones and a cream finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation in one layer, which adhered decently but there was slight streaking along the edges (and if I pressed my lips together, I could see where I did so) with slight product that sank into my lip lines. It had a moderate shine and was comfortable to wear, and the settling didn’t worsen over time. The texture was lightweight, smooth, and creamy without being thick nor was it sticky. It stayed on well for four hours and was hydrating over time.

Formula Overview

$30.00/0.2 oz. - $150.00 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to have "instant hydration and long-lasting volume" without the "sting of traditional lip plumpers." The texture is described as "silky, cushiony lip gloss ... without the sticky feel." Based on the brand's promotional swatches, the cream-based shades offer higher coverage while the sparkly/shimmery shades have less coverage, which was in line with what I experienced with the select shades I tried. There are also two more metallic shades, which seemed to be higher coverage per the brand's swatches as compared to the sparkly glosses that were more semi-sheer to medium.

The texture of the formula is lightweight, smooth, and cream-like with a non-sticky texture that wasn't too thick or too thin. Some shades applied evenly and smoothly, while a few shades showed lines along the edges or if I pressed my lips together, which seemed more likely with the cream finishes with the shimmery shades being more smoothing. They were very comfortable to wear and had solid wear at three to five hours with a hydrating formula. They have a larger, more curved doe-foot style applicator that is less flocked than the standard doe-foot applicator, which did hug the curve of my lips a bit better.

The formula had a sweet, minty scent (I thought I caught taste of mint occasionally but didn't feel confident that I did) and had a cooling sensation on my lips--definitely not "stinging," but it felt "minty fresh."

Cosmic

Hourglass Cosmic Unreal High Shine Volumizing Lip Gloss ($30.00 for 0.2 oz.) is a light-medium pink with cool undertones and a moderate sparkle. It had sheer coverage but helped smooth out my lip lines, which gave my lips a smoother, plumper appearance overall. The shimmer dispersed well across my lips, and the more gel-cream consistency of the gloss made it so I couldn’t feel the shimmers/sparkles at all. The gloss lasted well for three hours and was moisturizing while worn.

Tom Ford Flicker Skin Illuminating Duo Review & Swatches

Flicker

Tom Ford Beauty Flicker Skin Illuminating Duo ($80.00 for 0.42 oz.) includes a light-medium gold and a deep, chocolatly brown–both with more shimmery finishes. This is the deeper duo that’s been released to-date, and I could really see this working well on deeper skin tones well, particularly the darker shade, which may give a very my-skin-but-better effect on those skin tones. Both shades were pigmented, blendable, and long-wearing; they have that hybrid powder-gelee kind of formula, so the texture is a bit denser/firmer than some blushes (but have no powderiness) and have a more “melted” appearance applied.


Flicker (Top)

Flicker (Top) is a light-medium gold with strong, warm undertones and a soft, metallic sheen. It had opaque color coverage that adhered evenly to bare skin and blended out easily without emphasizing my skin’s natural texture. The powder had a firmer consistency that was smooth to the touch without any powderiness, but it was still easy to use with a brush and remained blendable (not stiff) on my skin. It lasted well for eight and a half hours on me before there was visible fading.

Flicker (Bottom)

Flicker (Bottom) is a rich brown with subtle, warmer rosy undertones and a luminous sheen. It was intensely pigmented with a smooth, firmer consistency that was dense but not stiff to work with (no powderiness!). The powder applied well to bare skin and blended out with little effort and yielded a luminous finish that didn’t emphasize my skin’s natural texture. For lighter skin tones, it might be a more contour-like hue, though it definitely has shimmer and contour powders tend to be more matte. For tan to deepest dark skin tones, this could work as a blush, bronze, or my-skin-but-better highlighter (depending on skin tone depth). It wore well for nine hours before fading noticeably on me.

What’s a better value to you: palettes or singles? Why?

Don’t get me wrong, I love singles, and I think if I was just a consumer, I’d get equal value out of palettes and singles because I enjoy mixing and matching a lot… but when I have that rare moment where I’m picking and choosing what to wear from ALL THE THINGS (not just what needs to be...

ColourPop Birthday Treat Super Shock Pressed Pigment Review & Swatches

Birthday Treat

Colour Pop Birthday Treat Super Shock Pressed Pigment ( for oz.) is a brighter, light-medium orange with warm red undertones and flecks of pink and gold glitter. It had good color coverage that was buildable to full opacity with two layers. The texture was smooth, creamy with moderate slip, and sponge-like (as the formula typically is!) and felt more powder-like as soon as it came into contact with my skin. It wore well for 10 hours without creasing or fading but had slight fallout over time.

Note, this particular shade is “not for eye area,” and it is/was included a gift with purchase on ColourPop orders to celebrate their 5th birthday, which seems to have run through supplies.
