Alice in Wonderland has always been one of my favorite Disney movies because I love how whimsical, seemingly dark and adventurous it is! When Tim Burton remade the film into a live-action film, I couldn’t wait because I was excited to see how he made the characters come alive (and gave them a darkness that only he knows all too well). Of course, in the Tim Burton film, my favorite characters were Mad Hatter (played by Johnny Depp) and the Queen of Hearts (played by Helena Bonham Carter). The sequel comes out tonight, and I’m ready to go watch it sometime this long weekend or during the week. Urban Decay came out with a beautifully delightful Alice Through the Looking Glass collection, and I have only picked up the palette so far! So, let’s take a look!
“I know who I was when I got up this morning, but I must have changed several times since then.”
The reason I love Alice in Wonderland is because it really allows you to be yourself and I was thrilled that Urban Decay decided to create this collection because they match beautifully. The packaging is terrific and I love the kaleidoscope aspects to it, which really gives you that dreamlike, euphoric feel.
The palette has two parts to it – one being a pop up butterfly, or Absolem, as you know him, and the palette pulls outs like a drawer to showcase the wondrous 20 shades of buttery and fantastical goodness.
“I’m not strange, weird, off, nor crazy, my reality is just different from yours.”
The “french doors” of the quote open to the charming pop-up butterfly.
The palette pulls out from the black satin ribbon to display the 20 Alice Through the Looking Glass-inspired shades.
L-R: Looking Glass, Reflection, Dormouse, and Metamorphosis
L-R: Hatter, Gone Mad, Paradox, and Cake
L-R: Lily, Duchess, Kingdom, and Chessboard
L-R: Heads Will Roll, Bandersnatch, Salazen Grum, and Royal Flush
L-R: Time, Dream On, Chronosphere, and Mirror
For my look, I used Gone Mad all over the lid, placed Dream On in the center of the lid, and then used Mirror in the crease.
Some of the shades were sheerer than I hoped, and there was a perfect mix of colors that make for a great look for day or night. The shades are rich and pigmented, however, and they have minimal fallout. I also did notice they do have a bit of creasing without primer, and that’s an easy fix. All in all, I found this palette to be really cutesy and lovely, and for the price of $60 – a really good price – $3 per shadow! You can find this palette at Ulta and Sephora.
What do you think of this palette? Will you be seeing Alice Through the Looking Glass soon?
