Alice Through the Looking Glass – Urban Decay Review

To celebrate the release of Alice Through the Looking Glass, Urban Decay have teamed up with Disney to create a palette fit for a queen (…of hearts) (sorry).

And hidden inside this zany yet gorgeous box are 20 brand-spanking-new shades, all developed with a character in mind, letting you steal their looks or create fabulous styles of your own.

The box itself is already so much fun. It probably shouldn’t be so amusing to a 20 year old, but I’ll embrace it. “We’re all made here”, I see as I look in the mirror. Not wrong. Underneath the mirror are two flaps that open to reveal a butterfly that flaps its wings. I got far too excited. Moving down to the compartment the actual makeup is in, you know, the main point, I open to find a new style brush, unlike the ones I’ve got in my Naked palettes. The longer end doesn’t hold much powder or build much colour, so I tend to use it for base colours like Looking Glass from Alice’s set, while the shorter end is better at building colour, so I use it for the bright colours such as Mad Hatter’s Cake.

Alice

The five columns are Alice, Hatter, Mirana, Iracebeth and Time. Each look also has a matching lipstick, which so sadly, I haven’t got my hands on yet. A travesty.

Hatter

The shades are a nice mix of matte and shimmering colours, with Mad Hatter obviously being my favourite, but Alice and Mirana probably being more office appropriate. Not that I wouldn’t love to walk into work with green and orange lids. Time is perfect for evenings with some dark metallic colours, but Iracebeth is the set I’m finding hardest to wear. Mainly because blue eyeshadow is always a challenge for green-eyed me.

Mirana

Now, my top three shades. Time, Dream On and Hatter. By far. Time is such an elegant navy colour, I absolutely love it. Hatter is a bold green that suits me well because of my eyes and really makes them poppppp. But Dream On is my No.1 favourite shade. I say shade, but it doesn’t actually have a colour, but gives a nice iridescent shimmer over the top of any colour. Super versatile and lovelllly and sparkly.

Iracebeth

Overall, I’m loving the palette, despite being slightly let down by the brush. Urban Decay have done super well, now I just need to get me those lipsticks…
