This is a very interesting palette – one minute I think I love it, the next I’m scratching my head and don’t quite get it.
Obviously, it’s very pretty with some gorgeous decoration on the product. But, other than the third shade (brown) it’s heavy on sparkle and light on pigment. The palette above is Shade 4 and there is a darker one, Shade 5, which I don’t have.
The first shade bar comes out as a kind of grey-brown, but very, very light in pigment – and very heavy in sparkle. The middle bar looks pinky in colour but goes onto the skin very pale and very light in pigment – again, heavy on the shimmer sparkles.

The final bar is a warm brown colour – again awash with shimmers. I don’t know that this is a workable palette – there isn’t enough colour in the first two bars and while the shimmer is very pretty, it overwhelms the shades. I don’t see what the first two bars are bringing to the party really although I love the chocolate shade with its little twinkles. Art Deco have named the palette Glam Vintage Highlighter and reading the release, it is referred to as Highlighter and Eye Shadow. I don’t think anyone knows quite what to do with this, even Art Deco. It’s £25 and launches this month.
