Colourpop Double Entendre Palette Review

Sooo I made an impulse purchase. I typically never buy anything without reading or watching reviews but when Colourpop had one of their recent sales the Double Entendre palette was just $12.80 with free shipping. This palette is typically $16.00. I actually don’t have a lot of neutrals in my collection so I took a chance and bought the palette. The only other Colourpop palette I own is the Yes Please and I wasn’t wild about it. The mattes in it were great but the shimmers were unusable for me without a wet brush. The Double Entendre is made up of mostly mattes. There is eight mattes, three shimmers and one odd shade that is like a matte but with chunky glitter. I’ll give you all the pros and cons for the palette and then show you three looks I put together using it.

Pros:

  • This palette is filled with warm neutrals that will look good on most skin tones.
  • This palette is perfect for creating everyday, neutral looks or more intense looks.
  • All the shades, except three, are creamy and super pigmented.
  • The shimmers go on perfectly with one swipe and have an almost wet look. Big improvement from the Yes Please palette.
  • Most of the shades were very easy to blend.
  • Little fallout or kick up.
  • You can create complete looks just using this palette.

Cons:

  • The shades Hot Bod (matte brown with gold flecks on the top row, second from the right), Hard (burgundy on the middle row, second from the right) and Teddy Bare (matte brown on the bottom row, end right) are all on the drier side, can be patchy and hard to blend.
  • Hot Bod also has a ton of fallout. The gold glitter just goes everywhere.
  • Uninhibited (metallic gold on the top row, second from the left) and Draft (rose gold on the middle row, end right) look almost the same on the eyes. You will see this below in my pictures.

*I am not the best at doing eyeshadow. I do what looks good to me. These are not tutorials in any way. They are just so you can see the shadows on my eyes and the color combos I put together. I didn’t use any of the deeper shades in the palette. I tried once, they wouldn’t blend, and I got frustrated so these are all pretty neutral.

This is the most neutral look I made with the palette. It literally took no time but I was satisfied with it.

  1. I used Flasher (top row, end right) all over the lid and up to the brow bone.
  2. I used Send Noodles (bottom row, second from the right) all over the lid and into the crease.
  3. I used Keep it PG (bottom row, end left) on the lid.
  4. I used Nip Slip (bottom row, second from the left) in my crease and to darken the outer part of the lid.

I really, really loved this look.

  1. I used Locked & Loaded (top row, end left) all over my lid and up to my brow bone.
  2. I used Draft (middle row, end right) on the majority of my lid.
  3. I used Extra Curricular (middle row, second from the left) in my crease.
  4. I used Teddy Bare (bottom row, end right) to line my lashes.
  5. I used I used Keep it PG (bottom row, end left) in my inner corner.

I also thought this look was very pretty but it came out so similar to the one above because most of these shades look orange.

  1. I used Flasher (top row, end right) all over the lid and up to the brow bone.
  2. I used Uninhibited (top row, second from the left) all over the lid.
  3. I used Nip Slip (bottom row, second from the left) in the crease.
  4. I used I used Keep it PG (bottom row, end left) in my inner corner.

Overall, I do recommend this palette. Are you going to get the most creative looks? Probably not since it’s just a basic, warm neutral palette but sometimes that’s all you need. I’ve saw reviews comparing this to the Tarte Toasted palette. I don’t own that palette but if you would like to see a review and comparison of the two a youtuber called Makeup.Just.For.Fun has a great video. Do you own this palette? Have you been thinking about getting it? Let me know! Thanks for reading and have a great day!
