I have very sensitive eyes and wear contact lenses for hours and I never had any problems with the I-Divine palettes. I always wear Urban Decay Primer Potion under any eyeshadow and the Sleek ones (both from Garden of Eden and Vintage Romance) last all day long without creasing. There is a bit of fallout when you apply them, but it does not bother me much because I always do the face only after the eyes.
As for Garden of Eden, the shimmery violets, the dark matte brown and green and the shimmery greens (Eve's Kiss, Paradise on Earth, Python, Fiona, Tree of Life, Fig, Evergreen and Fauna) are among my favourite shadows ever, but I am disappointed with Gates of Eden, Entwined, Forbidden and Adam's Apple. You can create an amazing violet/taupe look using only this palette, but for the greens I needed to look elsewhere for a inner lid color.
Anyway, I would absolutely suggest getting this palette because as I said 7 colors out of 12 are gorgeous, pigmented, blendable and long-lasting, the packaging is pretty and practical and the price is great.
As for Vintage Romance, I only bought it because it was cheap and I was really impressed with the Garden of Eden palette. Also, I needed some fuchsia/purple/violet shades and I liked a lot the ones in this palette (A Vow in Venice, Marry in Monte Carlo, Honeymoon in Hollywood, Bliss in Barcelona and Forever in Florence): the fallout is minimal, the pigmentation is amazing and lasts all day with primer. Even so, I had to look elsewhere for a lighter color for the inner lid: I ended up choosing In the Spotlight from MUG, a super shimmery pink champagne.
The problem with this palette is that the pigmentation of the other seven shades, with the possible exception of Love in London, is disappointing, so I suggest you buy this palette only if you need some nice bright fuchsia/violet shades.
