Sleek Vintage Romance Eyeshadow Palette Review & Swatches



Most of companies have launched some new fall palettes recently since everyone started switch new makeup looks for the season changing. Sleek launched this new eyeshadow palette called Vintage Romance.
Neutrals, purples, and also some other dark shades in the palette, most of them are shimmery or glittery with one warm toned matte color. I really fell in love with this palette at the first sight, and think these colors are gorgeous to create fall makeup looks...


Sleek Vintage Romance Palette
The packaging is the same as their other eyeshadow palettes (and most of their other products as well). Clean, sleek and classic. I remember I used to think Sleek is an high end brand when I first saw their products, doesn't their packaging remind you of NARS? But opposite to this Sleek is actually a super affordable UK based brand, drugstore price that comes with high quality products. 


Here is the close-up photo of all 12 eyeshadow colors:
Sleek Vintage Romance Palette

Here are the swatches of each row:

Row 1:

Sleek Vintage Romance Swatches
Pretty in Paris, Meet in Madrid, Court in Cannes, Lust in LA, Romance in Rome, Propose in Prague
Pretty in Paris is a metallic silver shimmer
Meet in Madrid is a soft gold shimmer
Court in Cannes is a cool-toned medium bronze shimmer
Lust in LA is a cool-toned olive brown shimmer
Romance in Rome is a dark navy blue shimmer with a slightly purple shift
Propose in Prague is a dusty red-ish chopper matte (sorry spelt shade name wrong in picture)



Row 2:
Sleek Vintage Romance Swatches
A Vow in Venice, Marry in Monte Carlo, Honeymoon in Hollywood, Bliss in Barcelona, Forever in Florence, Love in London
A Vow in Venice is a pink/purple berry-toned shimmer with a deeper berry shift
Marry in Monte Carlo is a metallic deep pink shimmer with pink micro-glitter  (SUPER CREAMY!)
Honeymoon in Hollywood is a medium berry satin with iridescent micro-sparkle
Bliss in Barcelona is a metallic purple shimmer with a more neon purple shift  (SO CREMY AGAIN!)
Forever in Florence is a brown-toned deep berry shimmer with iridescent micro-sparkle
Love in London is a dark silver/black shimmer with iridescent micro-sparkle


Pros:

- super affordable price for a 12 color eyeshadow palette
- most of color are super pigmented, 3 shades (Romance in Rome, Marry in Monte Carlo, Bliss in Barcelona) have similar formula to the new Urban Decay Vice 2 Palette
- beautiful colors for the season of fall
- classic and clean looking packaging just like other Sleek products

Cons:

- only contains one matte color
- doesn't have a browbone highlight shade
- would be better if all shade name is printed under each eyeshadow instead of on a clear film (same as other Sleek eyeshadow palettes)

Conclusion:
This is the 7th Sleek eyeshadow palette that I own. After purchasing 6 of them and saw this new one coming out, I knew I have to get it. I'm really impressed with this palette. The pigmentation is just as excellent as other Sleek eyeshadow palettes, and some shades have new formula that is even close to the Urban Decay Vice 2 Palette

I loooooove the 3 golden and bronzed color in first row (Meet in Madrid, Court in Cannes, Lust in LA), and also these 3 super creamy shade (Romance in Rome, Marry in Monte Carlo, Bliss in Barcelona). These color are amazingly gorgeous, not the color you would expect from a affordable palette like this!
Apart from not enough matte shades for crease blending and matte highlight color for browbone, this is an excellent product to add to your fall/holiday collection. Especially with such an affordable price, I highly recommend you to try it out!

Price: $9.99
