|Fly my pretties, fly|
So when I saw that Urban Decay had released two limited edition palettes one called Theodora, one called Glinda I knew I had to get my hands on one.
At £35 a palette this was definitely a splurge and after much umming and arhing I opted for the Theodora palette simply because the colours were a lot more wearable for me.
|Off to see the wizard|
First things first, when it arrived I did do a little jig at how pretty the packaging is. Both the outer box and the tin the make up is contained is features the picture from the film poster. On the back is a picture of Mila Kunis as Theodora looking all lovely and vampy as well as the names of the eye shadows contained which are :
Broken-a creamy white colour (matte)
beware-a toffee coloured brown (matte)
Bewitch-A medium cappuccino brown (matte)
West-A darker brown with a slight aubergine tint (slight sparkle)
Spell-Which is a split pan with a mustard gold yellow and glittery black
Jealous-A split pan with a sparkly light and dark green
As well as the eyeshadow palette you also get a black glide on eye pencil and a super saturated high gloss lip colour.My slight criticism is that the inside packaging looks quite plasticy and a bit "girls world" but the outer tin does compensate for this.
Inside the box there is also a guide for recreating the Theodora eye make up.
I did follow this slightly but ultimately wanted to put the colours through there paces so created a classic neutral smoke with the browns and a vampy look using the greens and black. I used Too faced lid primer for both of these looks.
The eye shadows are fairly pigmented as you would expect from Urban Decay. I didn't find they quite performed as well as my naked palette which surprised me as I assumed they would be exactly the same. I found particularly with the green shades I had to really build up the colour but I did achieve a nice depth and to be fair the pigment is still so much better than the average shadow.
Look #1-neutral Smoke
|The neutral smoke|
Here I used shade "broken" on the lid, "beware" on the socket bone "bewitch" and "West" at the outer corners.
|The three neutrals-daylight, no flash|
|Lovely mix of creams and browns-very wearable for day|
|Shades used-broken, Bewtich and West|
Look #2-green Eyed Monster
|The ladies a vamp|
|the glide on eyeliner is gorgeous|
|Loving these tigerish shades|
|The high gloss lip colour was a surprise hit|
