ColourPop Give It To Me Straight Eyeshadow Palette!

Purchased by me

 

ColourPop launched a new palette earlier this year and it’s been so popular every time I tried to order it, it was sold out but I FINALLY got my hands on it! The ColourPop Give It To Me Straight eyeshadow palette ($16) is full of warm coppers and rich mauves. I certainly have enough warm browns and coppers so what intrigued me about this palette is the mauves. I’m really getting tired of warm orangey palettes but I thought Forthright, Downright and Be Blunt were different enough to warrant purchasing the palette.

The palette consists of 12 shadows: 7 mattes and 5 shimmers:

Matter of Fact: matte pale pink
Up Front: metallic pale gold with a silvery sheen
Straight Up: metallic warm gold
BS: matte orangey terracotta


Frank: matte warm brown
Candid: metallic bright copper
Forthright: neutral metallic rose
Downright: matte soft pinky beige


Truth Hurts: matte peachy beige
Be Blunt: metallic rich raspberry
TMI: matte dusty burgundy
Actually...: matte deepened chocolate brown

All the shades perform well although they are somewhat powdery. Luckily I didn’t have any fallout when applying. The mattes in this are impressive–they are very smooth and blendable and the metallics are pretty and bright. All the shades are really pigmented (make sure to tap off your brush) and the ratio of matte to metallic is just right! The mix allows for lots of options and a complete look with just this palette. ColourPop calls the shimmery shades metallic and I agree–they are brighter than a shimmer but do not have any glitter in them.

Like most ColourPop palettes, this one is made of heavy cardboard with a magnetic closure. There is no mirror or brush neither of which I mind, after all it is priced at $16. I was surprised though at the size-it’s 4″ x 41/2″ only a few inches bigger than my IPhone. The shade names are on the back of the palette as well as under each pan, thank you for listening ColourPop, I appreciate it!

Standout shades for me are: Up Front for it’s brightening effect, Candid, Forthright is beautiful and unique, Downright is pretty for a soft look, Truth Hurts is so versatile, Be Blunt is a stunning burgundy and TMI is pretty too. Honestly, there is not a bad shade in the whole palette!

I tried two eye looks: one using the mauve shades and one with the copper shades. For this first eye look I used Downright in the crease, Forthright on the lid, and Actually in the outer corner and Up Front on the inner corner. I used Actually again on the upper and lower lash line.

For the copper look I used Downright in the lower crease, Truth Hurts in the upper crease, Up Front on the lid, TMI in the outer corner and Matter of Fact on the brow bone. I used Actually as a liner on the upper lash line and the outer corner of the lower lash line along with Truth Hurts smudged under the lower lash line.

The palette allows for both dramatic and soft looks. Overall, I’m really impressed with quality and performance of the ColourPop ColourPop Give It To Me Straight palette. I think I’ll be reaching for it often!
