ColourPop Element of Surprise 12-Pan Pressed Shadow Palette ($16.00 for 0.36 oz.) is a mix of warm neutrals, reds, and berries with both mattes and shimmers. It's another winning palette from the brand if the types of shades appeal to you, and the quality rivals many palettes I've tested this holiday season at double and triple the price.

I really enjoy ColourPop products overall, and their pressed eyeshadow formula is hard to beat at the price, but I really wish they would make it clearer when they include shades that are "not intended for use in the immediate eye area" or exclude them from palettes that look like eyeshadow palettes in all the meaningful ways. These shades are listed as "not intended for use in the immediate eye area" per the ingredient lists found on their website: Silk Street, Opulent, and Blank Canvas. Other brands also sell products that look like eyeshadows but carry the same warning, and it is often related to the pigments used in them and in the case of some instances, those warnings aren't necessary in places like Canada or the EU (as they are safe for using on the eye under those regulations), but it's hard to know without really diving deep into the ingredient list each and every time.

Highly pigmented shadow that applies evenly and feels ultra-velvety and silky. This long wearing formula contains a unique combination of softer powders which adheres easily to the eyes, gives a soft focus effect, and blends smoothly and evenly.

Not a horrible palette, but not one I find myself reaching for very often - this palette looked gorgeous in swatches/photos, but once I got it I was unimpressed. I find it very difficult to create eye looks using only this palette, and that I only use about half of the shades in the palette. The pigmentation could be better on 3-4 shades, and while I like the colour selection the palette is not very cohesive overall. Also, there's something about the packaging of this particular Colour Pop palette that I don't find very appealing. Knowing what I know now, I don't think I would purchase it/repurchase it.
