For Christmas my lovely husband, Antony brought me a Limited Edition Alice Through The Looking Glass Eyeshadow Palette collaboration by one of my favourite cosmetic brands Urban Decay
I absolutely love and always use my other Urban Decay Naked Palettes. I have Naked 3 and the more recent Smoky Eyes palette. I had my eye on this as I love Disney, and the vivid colours of the eyeshadows contained. On the reverse of the outer box, there is a list of the 20 all new colours for 5 of the characters from the latest Disney film -Alice Through The Looking Glass.
- Looking Glass
- Gone Mad
- Heads Will Roll
- Salazen Grum
- Royal Flush
- Dream On
The colours are so vivid, and don’t disappoint on the usual quality of the Urban Decay brand. They blend in beautifully and apply easily. My favourite colours Hatter, Metamorphis, Cake and Dream On. The only downside I found was the Eyeshadows on first look are quite small, but I did think similar with my Naked Palettes and they have lasted me a few years, and still going.
In the lid of the palette is a mirror, and a secret compartment with beautiful typography waiting with a quote from the film “I’m not strange, weird, off, nor crazy, my reality is just different from yours”. When you open the doors you find a 3-D butterfly which flaps it’s wings when you move the secret doors.
The actual eyeshadows are in a draw at the bottom of the palette packaging, which has another quote “I know who I was when I got up this morning, but i must have changed several times since then”. As you pull the draw you see the beautiful array of colourful eyeshadows. You also get an eyeshadow double ended brush. I love Urban Decay Brushes and find they are all different. I use all of the palettes for different techniques. Naked 3 is great for overall applying your base colour, then I use my Smoky Brush for adding fine detail. This brush in the Alice set is perfect for blending.
Overall I am very impressed with this set, and can’t wait to try different looks. This set is good compared to my Naked and Smoky palette as there is many different looks you could achieve with this set. Where as my other palettes are very similar colours which is great for adding depth and tone.
Have you got an Urban Decay obsession too? Have you a recommendation for another palette?
