Urban Decay: Alice Through The Looking Glass Palette


So after seeing that one of my favourite brands, Urban Decay had teamed up with the new Alice Through The Looking Glass film to create an eyeshadow palette, I was so excited. I already knew that this eyeshadow palette would have the most amazing colours in. As a lover of Urban Decay already, I expected amazing things from this palette and I was definitely not let down by them.


I have owned this palette now fro around a month and I use it most days. You can achieve so many different looks with this palette as it has 20 shadows in it! I can create such a subtle look one day and the most dramatic bright look the next day! I know this palette is a bit on the pricey side but I honestly do believe that you get what you pay for in this circumstance and that this is worth every single penny. Since purchasing this, I have definitely been experimenting with my colour a lot more. A favourite look I like doing is to create a really nude beige/brown look on the lid and add green under the eyes; I find this really makes my blue eyes pop.

As far as pigment goes, you couldn't ask for better. Obviously Urban Decay are well known for their Naked palettes which are all amazingly pigmented and this one is no different. The only colour which I was a bit shocked with the colour was the shade 'Dream On' which is the end purple shade on the second row. I expected this to be a dark shimmery purple but it actually has barely any colour to it and is just really shimmery. However, I do think this is still a really nice shade to work with.

The packaging for this palette is to die for! It is so detailed and beautiful. I love the fact that it has the 3D butterfly in the top section and that you can pull out the eyeshadows. I also love the patterning on the outer part. The only problem with this packaging is how chunky it is! It isn't ideal for travelling which is a bit of an issue but I couldn't find any other faults with it at all.
