Sleek Palette Review Vintage Romance

I 'm a big fan of Sleek's idivine eyeshadow palettes because of their price and pigmentation and this one doesn't disappoint. I love the colour combination in this palette, in fact this may be my favourite (after the storm palette of course.)  There are nine satin/metallic shades, one matte (Propose in Prague) and last two on the bottom row contain glitter (Forever in Florence and Love In London,)
There's a real mix between dark, bright and light colours in the palette both warm and cool. Pretty in Paris would be a good inner eye highlighter while Forever in Florence and Love In London would be great for a smoky eye. Packaging is standard for Sleek, a black matte case with a big mirror. I do love the whole romance theme though the names must be the longest Sleek has ever created! The high quality and longevity are what you expect from other sleek palettes, the colours wear about 7 or 8 hours.

L-R Top Row(Pretty In Paris, Meet in Madrid, Court in Cannes, Lust in L.A. , Romance in Rome, Propose in Prague)

L-R Bottom Row (A vow in Venice, Marry in Monte Carlo, Honeymoon in Hollywood, Bliss in Barcelona Forever in Florence, Love in London)

Pretty in Paris and Propose in Prague were harder to swatch, apart from that they were buttery and easy to use although there was a lot of fall out when swatching them.

I've swatched the glitter shades against Sleek's Limited Edition Sparkle 2 palette and Forever In Florence (left) is very similar to illusion(right) in that palette except Forever in Florence is a little lighter in colour.

(L-R) Love in London, Creep, Oil slick, Glitz and Glamour Starry Night)

Love in London is similar to Urban decay's Creep (creep is greyer) and Oil Slick (oil slick has more glitter.) Love in London is also similar to Sparkle2' Glitz and Glamour. (when swatched looks the same but Glitz and Glamour is actually dark brown not black.)  and Starry night (starry night is darker.)

Romance in Rome is a dupe for Candied Violet in Too Faced's Chocolate Bar Palette. 

 Verdict Definitely a keeper. Excellent value for money. I feel this palette will become a classic (at least for me) some of Sleeks palettes get forgotten or only a few colours get used but I feel all the colours here make the palette stand on it's own and will be used a lot.
You might like it are on a budget. If you love golds, burgundys and purples or are a romantic look fan.
You might not like it hate purples, burgandys and golds, if you prefer matte colours or if you can't stand fall-out.

Available from sleek & Superdrug £7.99
