This limited edition Alice Through The Looking Glass collection from Urban Decay is just insane – the eyeshadow palette is full of bold beautiful shades and the packaging is luxurious and so much fun. The lipsticks are equally as vibrant and bold. I’m not really known for wearing a super bold lip but I’ve promised myself that I’m going to try & be brave enough to wear a few of these out and about.
There are five limited edition lipstick shades which are diverse and bold in colour they range from more wearable red, nude and berry shades to the more vibrant purple shimmer and a stunning blue. They are all very pigmented and feel lovely on the lips.
The packaging is just as eye catching as the lipstick shades themselves, they have a bold bright floral kaleidoscope pattern on both the outer cardboard as well as the actual lipstick packaging. This collection is as you would expect from such a colourful film as Alice Through The Looking Glass, its fun, exciting and a little playful.
The lipsticks are named after key characters from the film and I still can’t decide what my favourite shade is. You will have to let me know what shade is your favourite.
Alice – Sheen Shimmer
This is a beautiful creamy sheer nude with a pink shift which looks gorgeous when the light hits it. This is the least vibrant of the 5 lipsticks but the pink shift in this formula gives it that pop of pink shimmer and makes it just that little more special. Yes its a nude lipstick but as you would expect from Alice its subtle and beautiful with a sparkle running through. This is a very pretty shade indeed and Its so hard to pick up the shimmer in photos.
Mad – Hatter Metallized
This is such a fun intense purple and I so want this to look good on me but I need a little practice in applying it, as It looked a little patchy on the lips. Its so bold and vibrant and although gorgeous the colour intimidates me slightly but Mad Hatter deserves such a quirky shade and I’ve seen this on a few people and it looks incredible, so I’m determined to wear it.
Mirana (White Queen) Metallized
This is a beautiful deep rich berry shade, its quite dark on the lips but I just love these autumnal shades and this is one of my favourites from the collection. It can feel quite dry on the lips & it took a little perseverance to get an even coverage but I think thats quite common with the darker more matte shades.
Iracebeth – (Red Queen) Comfort Matte
This is such beautiful pigmented true red and the colour stays put for hours. This is lovely formula to apply and it dries down to a matte finish and compared to most matte formulas this doesn’t feel to dry on my lips. Its a gorgeous bright red and one that would look good on anyone.
I think this is the quirkiest shade in the collection and it is a gun metal navy with silver shimmer, so it has it all going on! This isn’t a one swipe & you’re done lippie you need to take your time when applying to make sure you get an even application. I salute anyone who is able to wear this out and about, I love this shade but out of the collection I think its the hardest to wear and to apply.
So I would say the Urban Decay Alice Through The Looking Glass Lipsticks* offer something for everyone and invites you to step outside your makeup comfort zone. At first glance you may think the collection is a little off the wall or too quirky maybe, but it wouldn’t be doing the film justice if Urban Decay released a tame, subtle selection of everyday Pinks and Nudes. This is a fitting collection for a visually vibrant film.
My stand out shades are Iracebeth (gorgeous red) and Mirana (deep, rich berry) I think I will wear these two the most.
