A close up of the ColourPop Element of Surprise Palette. How gorgeous are these colors?!

Check out the swatches of the ColourPop Element Of Surprise Palette Palette below!



I think the Element of Surprise is a nice palette to add to your eyeshadow palette collection. I would definitely say it's not a must-have though, at least not compared to the other palettes ColourPop has to offer. I found some of the eyeshadows that were a matte or satin finish to be a bit on the chalkier side. The metallic and the duo-chrome finishes are the stars of this palette!

Ellarie x ColourPop was a matching Lippie Pencil and Lippie Stix for the first collab. For the second collab there are 2 lipglosses and 4 liquid lipsticks. I only ended up purchasing four out of the six lip products.
