Urban Decay Alice Through The Looking Glass Collection Review

The stunning Urban Decay Alice Through The Looking Glass collection is finally available in the UK and you can now get your mitts on all of the pieces. The eyeshadow palette is simply gorgeous and the lipsticks are insane! Just look at that packaging! I am in love!

Let's start with the gorgeous Alice Through the Looking Glass Palette*(£43.00), inspired by Disney's new Alice Through The Looking Glass film and it's characters. The packaging is magical and I absolutely love it!

When you open the lid, there are little doors with a quote from the film and when you open these...

A breathtakingly beautiful 3d butterfly pops out and I just want to look at it all day. Sooo gorgeous!

There is also a mirror to help you create your look. 

And to reveal the eyeshadows, you simply pull out the drawer from the bottom of the palette. 

There are 20 all new shades inside, arranged in columns by character. From soft shades for Alice's look, to bolder ones seen on the Mad Hatter. You can mix them all too for your own unique look. The formula features UD's Pigment Infusion System, which makes the eyeshadows super pigmented, easy to blend and long lasting. 

Fun fact: I stupidly swatched the rows from left to right, instead of top to bottom, so I had to re-swatch it all in the right order which delayed my review. Grrr! The things I do for the blog, eh?

The first row 'Alice'
Looking Glass (pale pink demi-matte)
Reflection (soft peach matte)
Dormouse (warm brown matte w/ floating gold micro-sparkle)
Metamorphosis (vibrant periwinkle blue w/micro-sparkle).

The second row 'Mad Hatter'
Hatter (vibrant green w/tonal micro-sparkle)
Gone Mad (aubergine w/pink iridescent pearl)
Paradox (vibrant orange w/gold pearl)
Cake (saturated blue-pink w/silver micro-shimmer)

The third row 'Mirana'
 Lily (opal pink pearl)
Duchess (peach w/pink shift and micro-sparkle)
Kingdom (copper-bronze pearl)
Chessboard (medium brown matte)

The fourth row 'Iracebeth': 
Heads Will Roll (vibrant turquoise w/gold micro-sparkle)
Bandersnatch (deep teal matte)
Salazen Grum (metallic crimson)
Royal Flush (pale beige shimmer)

The fifth row 'Time'
 Time (black-navy satin w/soft iridescent micro-sparkle)
Dream On (metallic purple-silver)
Chronosphere (metallic deep bronze) 
Mirror (gray-taupe satin)
You also get a double ended brush to help you apply and blend the shadows. 

The Lipsticks*(£16.00 each) come in floral packaging and there are five shades in total, each one representing a character from the film: Alice, Mad Hatter, Mirana (the White Queen), Iracebeth (the Red Queen) and Time (a peculiar creature who is part human, part clock).

The formula varies, depending on the shade and there is something for everyone. The lipstick cases are absolutely beautiful too and I would personally buy at least one of the colours just for the packaging :)

From left to right, we have:
Alice (sheer nude with a pink shift)
Iracebeth (bright matte red) 
Mad Hatter (sheer metallized vibrant purple)
Mirana (matte berry with copper shimmer, stunning!)
Time (gunmetal-navy with silver shimmer)

At first, I thought that I will only wear the red and the berry shades, but after trying the colours on my lips, I actually love all of them! The nude, purple and blue are a bit of a pain to apply and you have to put in some work to achieve a good colour payoff, so I would recommend using a liner with these shades.

The two matte shades on the other hand (Mirana and Iracebeth) are a dream to work with and last on the lips for good 5 hours or more. I can't get enough of these! So beautiful!

 If you're a Disney or Alice in Wonderland fan, you need this lovely collection in your life.
