As i mentioned before , i'm the proud owner of some new Urban Decay palettes :D
Urban Decay is still one of my favorite HE brands and when i saw the new limited edition palettes , inspired by the upcoming movie "Oz - The Great and Powerful" , i could not wait to have these !
Theodora is based on the bad witch and Glinda on the good witch . Are you a good witch or a bad witch ? I'm a bit of both i think , because i like both palettes a lot !
I like the new style of these palettes . It's the "Build Your Own Palette" system , which i really can appreciate. You can pull out the eyeshadow and replace it when it's empty or if it's a color you don't like.
Also new in these palettes are 2 pans with a duo color . All the other colors are exclusive to the palettes and are full size . Not the big boxes like the book of shadows. They took a lot of space in my stash , so i ended up with depotting all of my BoS's. I prefer the palettes like 'the vice palette" or the "build your own" systems. Much more handy and classy :)
Both palettes comes with a travel size 24/7 eyeliner pencil . "Rockstar" in the Glinda (which was missing in my palette unfortunately ) palette and "Zero" in the Theodora palette and a full size Super Saturated High Gloss Lip Pencil . A bright , true red for the Theodora palette and a light sheer nude color for the Glinda palette. I like the formula of these pencils , they really glide on and gives my lips a nice healthy gloss , without being sticky . It's between a gloss and a lipstick , i would say :D . I think i need more of these lippencils !
Each palette contains a "Get the Look" card . I paid 40,97€ for each .
A Bargain if you ask me ! 6 full size pans including 2 duo's , a full size lippencil and a travel size eyeliner ( +/- 3/4 of a normal pencil ) : a quick calculation told me that each palette has a value of 125€ . Not bad if you ask me , well done UD !
As usual from UD , some colors are with the wellknown chunky glitter :D . Although i don't mind , some of you do . But let me tell you , since UD reformulated their eyeshadows , you have less fallout from the glitter. But it's still a glitter eyeshadow of course .
So i hope that UD will release more of these kind of palettes , or like "The vice" palette in the future . They are much more handy !
Okay , i think the mainthing is said :D , on to the swatches!
First : The Theodora palette :
