If you haven’t seen this collection yet, where have you been?! It has been all over the internet lately, and rightly so, as it’s stunning. Urban Decay have created this collection in partnership with Disney to mark the release of Tim Burton’s Alice Through The Looking Glass; the sequel to his 2010 hit Alice In Wonderland. I wanted to share my review of the palette and the five lipsticks in this collection with you.
The Urban Decay Alice Through The Looking Glass Lipsticks* (£16 each but currently out of stock from Urban Decay) are limited edition and come in five different quirky shades named after different characters in the film. The formula of all five is so creamy, long-lasting and pigmented. Time is a gunmetal navy with silver shimmer- there is visible glitter in this and I need to find a way to be brave enough to wear it as it’s amazing! Mad Hatter is a bright purple shimmer that has a slight metallic look to it- I would definitely wear this as it’s not too far from fuschia. Iracebeth is a bright red matte and is the most wearable shade of the five- it looks so eye-catching and classic and it isn’t at all drying on the lips. Mirana is a matte berry with tonal shimmer- I think this will be an amazing lipstick in autumn for me as the shimmer in this one is quite subtle and the shade just screams Fall. Finally, Alice is a sheer nude with a pink shift- basically it looks nude but when you turn it towards the light it has an irridescent pink shimmer, just like their recent Fireball highlighter (which I reviewed here). The Alice lipstick is a bit too yellow in tone for me, but I’m going to look online to find some tutorials on the different ways people are wearing it as I love the look of the pink shift.
Now, brace yourself for the sight that is the eyeshadow palette. The Urban Decay Alice Through The Looking Glass Eyeshadow Palette* (£45 but currently out of stock from Urban Decay) has 20 completely new shades that are arranged in column by character. You can stick to the one column to create a look inspired by that character, or mix and match as you please.
All of the shades are velvety soft and incredibly pigmented, but as is usually the case, the shimmery and metallic shades give the best pay-off. The first column is the Alice column- Looking Glass is a pale pink demi-matte, Reflection is a soft peach matte, Dormouse is a warm brown matte with gold micro-sparkle and Metamorphosis is a bright periwinkle blue with micro-sparkle.
The next column is the Mad Hatter’s- Hatter is a vibrant green with tonal micro-sparkle, Gone Mad is an aubergine with pink iridescence, Paradox is a vibrant orange with gold pearlescence and Cake is a bright pink with silver micro-shimmer.
The middle column in the palette is the Mirama (The White Queen) column- Lily is an opal pink pearl, Duchess is peach with a pink shift and micro-sparkle, Kingsom is a copper bronze pearl and Chessboard is a medium brown matte.
The next column belongs to The Red Queen, Iracebeth- Heads Will Roll is a vibrant turquoise with gold micro-sparkle, Bandersnatch is a teal matte, Salazen Grum is a metallic crimson and Royal Flush is a pale beige shimmer.
Finally, the last column (and also my favourite column) is Time- my favourite shade is the whole palette is the incredible Time, which is a black-navy satin with irridescent micro-sparkle. Next down is Dream On- a metallic purple-silver, then Chronosphere is a metallic deep bronze and Mirror is a grey-taupe satin.
