URBAN DECAY ALICE THROUGH THE LOOKING GLASS COLLECTION, REVIEW AND SWATCHES

If there is a brand that knows how to do a showstopper collection, well this is Urban Decay.

Once again, UD has partnered with the worldwide phenomenal production of the year, Alice in Wonderland-Alice Through The Looking Glass, to release a make up collection that is already sold out almost everywhere.

The collection sees a new eyeshadows palette and 5 new lipsticks.




Urban Decay is one of the mostb edgy and experimental brand out there and this collection is the perfect translation of the crazy and adventurous word of Alice in bright and dreamy make up.

The palette is a collector's dream.



 The beautiful coiffret opens up to reveal a mirror, a butterfly and a selection of 20 shadows, matte,  shimmer and metals (whit names clearly inspired by the film) plus a double ended brush (shadow + blending).




Natural and nude shades are paired with bright and colorful hues, pastels and dark ones, it's a great mixed selection with endless possibilities to play with.





Not only this palette is special for being so unique but it's a bloody bargain too, considering that 20 shadows and a double ended brush will cost you £43, so it's £2.15 per shadow, not bad at all.

Fave shades of mine? Well definitely Chronosphere (metalllic brown), Dream on (metallic grey), Reflection (velvety peachy pink) and Paradox (shimmery orange).





The UD lipsticks have had a new packaging, launched with this collection.
These limited edition ones (£16) have the case decorated with a multidimension pattern and there are 5 shades available, with names all taken from the characters of the movie.




Alice: pink nude-sheer
Mad Hatter: Purple-shimmer
Mirana: Berry-matte
Iracebeth: Cherry red-matte
Time: Bluish gunmetal-shimmer 



(Mirana is not in the pictures because I was sent a broken one so I had to swatch it with a brush).

Some are quite peculiar shades to wear but browsing on IG i have discovered unusual lipsticks shades are A THING now so, here we go, served with your new fresh trend!



The buttery texture and the colour payoff are a very appreciated feature of all UD lipsticks and these ones are not any less.



The one I love most is Iracebeth, the most juicy cherry red with a non drying matte finish.

Paired with Dream on on the lids and Reflection on the browbone, I am ready to go.


All the collection is sold out online but I have seen a good stock around the UD counters in Selfridges, Debenhams and House of Fraser (at least in Manchester) so hunt them down until you can.
