I asked on instagram if you guys would like to read my first impressions on the ColourPop Give It To Me Straight, Double Entendre & Juvia’s Place Nubian 2 Palettes. I got a very positive response so I decided to write them all! The Give It To Me Straight Palette from my Recent ColourPop Haul was requested first so today’s post is an abbreviated first impressions/review on the GITMS. I will be posting an in-depth review once I’ve had more time to play with it.
ColourPop Give It To Me Straight Palette
At A Glance
We’ll be frank, this is our favorite palette yet. Full of warm coppers and rich, romantic mauves, it complements multiple skin tones and satisfies all your moods. Includes 7 buttery mattes and 5 intense metallics that can be used wet or dry.
The Give It To Me Straight Palette by ColourPop contains 12 x 0.85g shades in a selection of copper and mauve mattes and metallics.
The ColourPop Give It To Me Straight palette has light pink packaging so it’s going to get dirty fast. On the other hand I love that ColourPop has started printing shade names directly below the pans in addition to the back of the palette. I’m actually remembering the names of each shade now!
The pressed formula hasn’t changed, I’m still loving ColourPop’s matte & metallic shades. The quality is honestly so good! I’m happy that the GITMS palette has more mattes than previous CP palettes I own. I can create an all matte look with the shades provided or play with the metallics.
Give It To Me Straight is marketed as a mauve toned palette, but now that I’ve played around with it a bit more I’m noticing that there are almost as many coppery/bronze shades as mauves. It’s kind of like a combination of the Fem Rosa SHE Palette and the Double Entendre. I wish that the lightest shade in the palette was a white to set my primer, but it’s got a very noticeable pink undertone.
All these shades are swatched without a primer. I will go into full detail about each shade when I post my review. My Favourite shades in the ColourPop Give It To Me Straight Palette are Straight Up (Third Shade – Top Row), Downright (Last Shade – Middle Row), Be Blunt (Second Shade – Bottom Row) and TMI (Third Shade – Bottom Row).
