A few years ago, when Urban Decay teamed up with Disney to produce an eyeshadow palette, they created one of those products which go completely viral. A jewel box of colour had everyone (myself included) clamouring for one, and they’re still selling for hundreds on Ebay. So, with the new release of the sequel Alice Through the Looking Glass, Urban Decay got busy, and not only is there a dreamy new palette (review to come) but five somewhat trippy lipsticks too!
Packaged in keliedoscope-esque tubes, the shades run the gamut from creamy neutrals to full on blue. So no matter how subtle or crazy your look is, there’s going to be something you love!
The shade Alice is undoubtedly the most wearable out of the five, and is described as a sheer nude with a pink shift. On the lips it gives a beautiful peachy hue with a subtle sheen. The pink micro glitter in the formula add a little warmth and interest to the formula. I can almost guarantee that you don’t have a nude shade quite like this one!
Iracebeth is possibly my favourite colour from the collection and has been labelled as a bright matte red. Blue undertones in the formula keep teeth looking pearly white, and I just love the pop of colour against tanned skin during the summer. If you’re after a true-red lip, you should definitely check this one out! I got four hours of wear before I felt the need to touch up, and despite the matte formula, it didn’t feel at all drying.
Mirana is one of those colours that I feel like every girl should own. It’s a stunningly vampy burgundy shade, which I am dying to wear throughout the winter. The formula has the most beautiful berry undertones which keep the shade looking fresh. It feels surprisingly balm-like, and I just love the subtle sheen that it has on the lips.
Mad Hatter is definitely one of the most eye-catching shades I’ve ever tried, and I have to say, as unlikely as it is that I’m going to be popping into Waitrose rocking a purple sparkly lip, I kind of love it! The formula is so pretty and shiny, and on the lips it turns into an almost magenta-toned purple. I think this would be absolutely incredible on darker and richer skin tones than mine, so if you’re looking for a shade which is something a little different and crazy, this one’s for you!
Of course I had to save the craziest shade for last! Time is described as a gunmetal navy with a silver finish. Honestly, this one is just so pretty, I’m keeping it as something of a collectable. On the lips it’s a true blue, and again, I’m thinking that a deeper skin tone would make this shade really come alive. Honestly, I’ve not worn this one enough to comment on wearability, but it’s just such a fun addition, I’m kind of in love!
