I'm very glad I did wait in the end. My list had originally included Odalisque (teal), Dandizette (Navy blue), Ego (Forest Green) and Noir Plum but when I swatched them I found them to be surprisingly sheer. There is considerable variation in the level of pigmentation and metallic sheen between these eyeshadows. I found that Prance, Dalliance and Centre Stage were more densely pigmented in comparison to the other brighter colours. I'm not sure of the reason for this variation but I would definitely recommend going and looking at this collection in person before buying if you can.

I purchased Prance and Unflappable. Prance is a frosted light pinky-mauve shade and has a beautiful metallic finish. Unflappable is more tricky to describe. It's a bit brown, a bit grey and a bit plum, I think it's a really good colour for a smoky eye look. It's also a good alternative to black for darkening the crease. I find Unflappable is not as pigmented as Prance and I wouldn't describe it as a metallic finish. It's satin with a light shimmer running through it, to my eye anyway.

My apologies for the less than spectacular eye pictures. I took these after several hours wear and there is visible transfer from my eyeliner (Becca Belize). I still think it's useful to see how the colours look when applied. Here, I have Prance applied over the mobile lid and Unflappable along the outer 3/4 of the lashline, smoked out a little at the edges. Looking at the photos, I think Prance would have looked better blended out at the crease edge.
I realised these colours are similar to some others I have in my collection. I have taken some pictures comparing to the lighter colour in the NARS Melusine duo and both colours in the Hourglass Exhibition duo. I'll hopefully have that post up shortly.
