This is the week of eyeshadow first impressions at Always, Cleia. On Monday I posted my Give It To Me Straight Palette First Impressions and today’s post is a first impressions of the ColourPop Double Entendre Palette. I was obsessed with the idea of owning this palette for months before biting the bullet and ordering it. I hoped it could become my everyday palette with all the warm neutral shades. I’ll post a full review in a few weeks once I’ve had more time to play with it. Here’s my first impressions!
ColourPop Double Entendre Palette First Impressions
Double Entendre is the perfect palette for everyone! Your new go-to, your ride or die, your partner in crime – this palette holds the ultimate everyday, nude neutrals. With 12 shades, ranging from cool to warm, matte to metallic, you and this palette will be inseparable. You can never have too many nudes…
The ColourPop Double Entendre Palette is a ColourPop original (meaning it wasn’t part of a collab). It contains 12 x 0.85g eyeshadow pans in a range of warm neutral shades. Many people believe it’s a dupe for the Tartelette Toasted palette. The shades range from cool to warm nude shades in matte & metallic finishes.

Not including the cardboard packaging the palette came in the Double Entendre has the same palette design as the I Think I Love You Palette (no longer available). It’s a nice design but as a makeup collector I don’t like that I wouldn’t be able to easily distinguish between the two palettes once I discard the cardboard box.
I expected a few more cool neutrals in the DE palette. The product description promised them and the photos of the palette online looked like it had a mix of both. Once I started playing with it I noticed that many of the shades that appeared cool to me (Nip Slip & Send Noodles in the bottom row) had a warm orange undertone. I enjoy wearing orange eyeshadow but I wasn’t counting on most of the browns to pull extra warm.
I love the ratio of mattes to metallics in this palette. The amount of mattes makes the DE palette more wearable for daytime but I can also pull in a metallic gold or bronze for evening. The three metallic shades are beautiful! I really do adore ColourPop’s metallic pressed eyeshadow formula.
There’s one shade that I believe the palette could do without, and that’s Flasher, the ivory shade in the top right hand corner. ColourPop’s Satin pressed eyeshadow shades never seem to be all that pigmented to me and don’t show up very well on my skin compared to their mattes & metallics. The slight shimmer is barely there, even after applying the shade wet. I had the same issue with Babe in the She Palette.
My favourite shades in the palette are Hot Bod (Third Shade – Top Row) for it’s beautiful matte brown base with flecks of gold, Hard (Third Shade – Second Row), Draft (Fourth Shade – Second Row) and Nip Slip (Second Shade – Bottom Row).
