I find that the eyeshadows within the palettes just feel so buttery on the fingers, and apply well to the lids.
The palette contains 12 shadows overall, consisting of 8 metallics, 3 shimmers and 1 matte shade). I love the names of the shades, they really relate well to the palette, but there is (in my opinion) a bit of a hodge podge of colours that don't match well against each other.
|The top row consists of five metallic shimmer shades and one matte shade.|
As you can see I have mostly been sticking to the neutral shades (I've not found a time and place to crack out Romance in Rome). These are lovely shades, but I have found that the lighter shades aren't as pigmented as the rest in the palette (Propose in Prague I am looking at you mister!). The shades are lovely and my favourite has to be Court in Cannes (It must be it has the bigger dent then the rest of them).
|The bottom row consists of 3 metallic shades, and the 3 shimmer shades.|
Out of the shades I find the shimmer shades to be a bit full on in the palette (more glitter then colour it seems). I will admit I do like Marry in Monte Carlo as it is a light shade and not too dark so it is an easy colour to work with.
Overall this is a really nice palette, but I think this is one for the more adventurous of makeup users. I will admit I would repurchase this if something did happen to it (mainly as it is part of my palette collection more then anything), but if it was because of the shades I think I would stay clear.
The palette retails for £7.99 and can be found in most Superdrug and Boots stores (Click on each one to be taken to the page)
