Urban Decay Alice Through the Looking Glass Eyeshadow Palette*

Urban Decay Alice in Wonderland Palette

So yesterday I shared the rather stunning collection of lipsticks that Urban Decay had released to celebrate the new Alice Through the Looking Glass movie, but I think that the piece-de-resistance has to be the rather stunning eyeshadow palette.

Urban Decay Alice in Wonderland Palette 1

I kind of feel like calling this an eyeshadow palette is kind of like calling a Rolls Royce a run-around. There’s just something so special about this, and it’s the perfect mix of whimsy and much loved colours, and the packaging really is jus to die for!

Urban Decay Alice in Wonderland Butterfly

Absolutely every inch has been covered in triply, kaleidoscope-esque images and quotes from the book. It does feel a touch magical! Also, the absolute clincher for me was the rather magical 3-D butterfly which pops up under the mirror. I don’t think I’ve seen anything quite like it in a makeup product before.

Urban Decay Alice in Wonderland Palette Detail

It seems to right that Urban Decay have aligned themselves with a film all about the odd, and not-quite-right. They are such an inclusive and forward-thinking brand, it seems like a wonderfully natural fit!

When I realised how in love I was with the packaging, I was skeptical about how much I would like the palette. By nature, I’m rather boring when it comes to makeup. I can’t tell you how many brown and beige shadows I have, so I was so happy to see a great balance of neutrals alongside some really rather stunning colours.

Urban Decay Alice in Wonderland Palette review

Each column is designed to represent a character from the book, from left to right, they’re Alice, The Mad Hatter, Mirana, Iracebeth, and Time. It’s just such a novel little palette, I’m completely smitten! For daily use, I’ve been sweeping a light dusting of Reflection (a warm apricot) over my lids for a touch of definition, smudging Chronosphere (a warm, very metallic chestnut) into my lash line, and dotting Royal Flush (perhaps the most beautiful champagne shimmer highlight) into my inner eyes.

Urban Decay Alice in Wonderland shadow palette

As we’ve all come to expect from Urban Decay, the formulation of the shadows is pretty wonderful. They’re super smooth and creamy, with the most wonderful colour payoff. Shades like Dormouse and Chessboard are the perfect daily browns for me, and I wish I could buy a backup Royal Flush as it’s jus the most divine silky-smooth highlight. There are some surprises too! Lily looks like it should be a basic slightly yellow toned beige, but it’s shot through with pink micro-shimmer which gives the shade a beautiful fairy-dust quality. Dream On is another surprise – in the pan it looks like a deep cool toned shimmer mauve, but on the eyes it’s a wash of sheer sparkle. It’s stunning! The brighter colours are just dreamy too! I’m waiting for colder weather to rock the ultra pigmented and shimmering  Salanzan Grum, whilst I’m currently working up enough courage to wear the inky Time as an alternative to black liner.

The palette also comes with a double ended brush tucked in amongst the shadows. It’s decorated with the same colourful patterning as the palette. I’ve not really tried it out too heavily yet, but it’s lovely and soft and is a great little blender!

Urban Decay Alice Through the Looking Glass Lipstick Collection*

Urban Decay Alice in Wonderland Lipstick Collection

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!

Urban Decay Alice in Wonderland Lipstick packaging

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!

Urban Decay Alice

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!

Urban Decay Iracebeth

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.

Urban Decay MiranaMirana 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.

Urban Decay Mad Hatter Lipstick

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!

Urban Decay TimeOf 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!

Urban Decay’s Alice in Wonderland Lipstick Collection is priced at £16 per lipstick and you can find them here (UK) and here (US)
