Since I don’t go through palettes, the size of the pans is just fine for me. As I was swatching, I did notice the wiggle room for easy depotting; and the pans are magentic but do not have info on the back. The only downside is the color scheme. The scheme should have been arranged from light to dark with the coordinating.
Element of Surprise is a great way to play with color. As with most palettes, I find myself having a hard time using all the colors. I feel Silk Street, Blank Canvas, Opulent, and Peace of Mind might look weird on me, but I think I can work with it.
The finger swatches without a base or primer. Blank Canvas, Details, and Silk Street are uneven but the rest swatched smoothly.
Element of Surpise is going to be a match for those who don’t mind the color scheme or selection.
