Colourpop | Give It To Me Straight Eyeshadow Palette (Review and Swatches)

Colourpop | Give It To Me Straight Eyeshadow Palette (Review and Swatches)

Colourpop is an affordable brand that I really do enjoy. These 12 pan palettes are affordable and cost around 16$. The Give It To Me Straight palette has been out for some time and I ordered it at the beginning of the year. It has a nice range of matte and shimmers and a full look can be completed with this palette without having to pull in a companion palette.

The formula is the same as the other 12 pan palettes and while I like Colourpop's pressed shadows, the mattes do have alot of kickup. If that bothers you, these palettes might not be for you. The shimmer shades are gorgeous and nice to use. They can be a bit crumbly though. I usually spray my brush with a setting brush when using these shimmers. I like the color story of this palette, it's purple but can be worn more natural and neutral.  The mauves and softer colors are great when you want something alittle different but don't want to stray very far.


I've ordered from Colourpop many times before and the shipping to Canada is 9.99$ minimum. If I decide to order one palette, I need to keep in mind the shipping and potential custom fees. When ordering one palette at a time, I don't tend to get hit with customs. When I have a bigger order, I tend to get dinged with the extra fees. However, I do enjoy Colourpop as a brand and keep ordering from them.  They have so many new products that are on trend and tempting when wanting new makeup. At the moment, I still want the Fortune Palette and the Shayla collaboration Persception palette.

  2. The customs fees are what put me off ordering from Colour Pop, but I have one palette, which I received as a gift and I love so I should place an order. The swatches on this one are gorgeous! xx

  3. Custom and shipping sometimes is too much. I never do international shipping. When I visit Seattle I place a few orders. This palette is beautiful but I got the smaller MAR palette in my recent haul. Love your eyeshadow palette collection. :-)
