The Glinda Palette by Urban Decay

As you all may know Disney recently came out with Oz the Great and Powerful featuring an amazing cast (James Franco, Mila Kunis, Michelle Williams, Zach Braff). With the launch of this new movie, Urban Decay has come out with two new limited edition eye shadow palettes based on the two witches of the movie. One of the palettes is based on Theodora and the other is based on Glinda. For my birthday I received the Glinda palette (pictured above) and I am in love. This palette comes with six unique shades, two of which are duo shades so technically it comes with eight amazing and very pretty colors. It also comes with a 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Rockstar and a Super Saturated High Gloss Lip Color in Glinda. The palette retails for $49.

I love the packaging of this palette. The packaging is a tin-like material, it's very thin and easy to store. It's also very cute. My favorite part of this palette is obviously the eye shadows. They are VERY pigmented yet very soft and feminine. The colors are also pretty build-able in pigment, given how pigmented they already are. My favorite colors are Aura (the duo colors in the middle of the first row. They are very iridescent and gorgeous), Magic (the pinkish color) and Illusion (the first color on the second row). If you are looking to buy either the Glinda or Theodora palette, do it now! They are limited edition and usually limited edition palette's sell for WAY more online once they're off the market.

This palette also came with an eye liner and a lip color. The eyeliner, Rockstar, is a very deep eggplant color. It's a very fun color as well as being very wearable. It's long lasting and it glides on smoothly. It has a very subtle shimmery finish without being glittery which I really like. The eyeliner retails for $19.
My least favorite thing about this palette was the Super Saturated High Gloss Lip Color in Glinda. Glinda is a very dark nude shade, that on my lips makes me look like I'm cold and dead. It is also the same color as Naked, just repackaged and renamed. I'm actually jealous of the color in the Theodora palette, I love reds and pinks. The lip pencil retails for $19.

Overall, this is a great product and I'm so happy to own it. It's pretty, feminine and fun. I would recommend both the Glinda and Theodora palettes!
