The 12 eyeshadows in the Sleek Vintage Romance palette are named:
- Pretty in Paris
- Meet in Madrid
- Court in Cannes
- Lust in LA
- Romance in Rome
- Propose in Prague
- A Vow in Venice
- Marry in Monte Carlo
- Honeymoon in Hollywood
- Bliss in Barcelona
- Forever in Florence
- Love in London
Pretty in Paris and Meet in Madrid are good for the inner corners. A tad too sparkly - and silver and gold - for my liking, so I might skive off the inner corners altogether with this palette, although Meet in Madrid blends in very nicely.
Court in Cannes, Lust in LA and the only matte eyeshadow in this palette - Propose in Prague, a red-brown - are great for lid-wear. The other shades will suit the crease.
I love Romance in Rome. It is a deep denim blue, although it happens to be the least pigmented colour in this palette. But the swatches are coming up, so you can see for yourself.
Bliss in Barcelona is a stunning neither-purple-nor-violet shade. Forever in Florence and Love in London finish more matte as well, though they have the odd sparkle.
Now for the swatches, with and without flash, and one in artificial light. Love in London and Forever in Florence are at the right extreme; and then we have the shades from the palette's top left corner towards the right, and the second row. Pardon my appalling photography skills. Photographing your left hand with a Canon 500D in your right hand leads to blurring if your hands aren't very steady.
