Urban Decay’s The Glinda Palette

Urban Decay has partnered with Disney to create two limited edition palettes inspired by characters from the movie Oz The Great and Powerful.  Each palette feature eight new shades (two are duo-shades; four full-sized single), a travel-size eye liner and a full-sized Super-Saturated High Gloss lip color pencil.  The palette retails for $49 and can be purchased at Sephora, Urban Decay counters and UrbanDecay.com.

Tornado is a semi-dark purple with a shimmer finish.

Illusion is dark cream shade with peach undertones with a satin finish.

Aura (duo shade) is an iridescent white with a blue shift and an iridescent white with a red shift.

Oz (duo shade) is silver and yellow gold with corresponding glitter.

Magic is a medium pink with golden shimmer.

South is a taupe with slight brown undertone with silver glitter.

Rockstar Eye Pencil is a deep eggplant and is in the permanent range.

Glinda Lip Color is light beige with peach undertones.

The shadows are in the new formula which means the shadow has a smooth texture, great pigmentation and blends easily.  This is true for all of the shades except for Oz.  Oz has heavy glitter with a lot of fallout and wandering glitter particles.  It applies better when used wet.  I found Aura slightly powdery, but the iridescent shift shows up nicely when used dry, more so when used wet or over a dark base (part of the arm swatch is over Rockstar pencil).  South is a shade we have seen before from Urban Decay (looking at you Vice Palette).  This shade performs better from its previously released ‘cousins’.

I’m a huge fan of Urban Decay pencil liners and love Rockstar.  It’s a nice alternative to brown or black for a neutral eye look.  I had never tried Urban Decay’s Lip Color pencils before and this isn’t the best shade to start.  Glinda is too pale for my skintone, but still very pigmented.  I did find the formula sticky, but the color lasted for several hours.
