I previously wrote about the Urban Decay Theodora palette from their ‘Oz the Great and Powerful’ range with Disney. You could read how much I loved it here, and therefore my need for their ‘Glinda’ palette was quickly solved by purchasing it with my birthday money.
I’ve no need to tell you really how much I love UD, they’re a fantastic brand with amazingly pigmented eyeshadows and produce some of the most well known and sought after palettes on the planet.
On top of this I am a rather large fan of limited edition products particularly with a Disney/Fairytale/Bond theme, hence my obsession with these palettes, OPI Bond polishes and also their Oz collection.
So let’s get to talking about Glinda. Clearly this is a photo heavy post so please be warned!
There are 6 separate eyeshadows in this palette, 2 of which are duos so you get even more for your money!
They are all completely brand new and very pretty, delicate shades.
The palette also contains a 24/7 eye liner in Rockstar and a Super Saturated Lip Colour appropriately named Glinda, as well as a ‘Get the Look’ card detailing how you can recreate the same look as Michelle Williams in the feature film.
So here are the beeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeautiful shades that the palette contains:
Clockwise they are called:
Tornado – a shimmery deep aubergine colour
Aura – one of the duo shades containing a shimmery white and a shimmery pale icy blue
Magic – a beautiful pinky lilac colour
Illusion – peachy shimmery nude
Oz – the second duo eyeshadow contains a shimmery gold and silver
South – a shimmery dirty pewter colour
The photo is the same below but taken in natural light.
The 24/7 Glide On Eye Pencil is in ‘Rockstar’ is described as darkest eggplant, more commonly known as aubergine to us Brits!
This is a super soft pencil that doesn’t drag on the skin but leaves a beautiful clean line with great pigmentation.
Here is a look I created with the palette:
I covered by eye area using Illusion, lightened the inner corner using the white shade from Aura, applied South to the outer corner for definition in the crease area and Tornado to the lash line.
This was a really simple quick look that I applied before work one day as the colours blend easily enough for day wear and the purple adds the definition to make my eyes stand out more.
The Super Saturated High Gloss Lip Color is really natural looking but super glossy.
It’s a great colour for work (when in comparison to the Theodora lip color!) and would suit so many skin tones.
As you can see its so natural but really pretty and feels so hydrating on the lips.
I LOVE these palettes for the range of colours that I wouldn’t try otherwise, the GREAT pigmentation of the shadows, and the fact they come with lip pencils and eye pencils.
I love trying new products and with Urban Decay you know that they will be good value for money so I will continue for a loooooooooooooooong time to buy their new products!
What are your favorite UD products? Have you tried Glinda too?
