Urban Decay Alice Through the Looking Glass Eyeshadow Palette: Review and Swatches

Disclaimer: This post contains affiliate links and the products featured were provided for review.
The new Disney Alice in Wonderland movie adaptation, Alice Through the Looking Glass, is about to drop soon (May 27th) and Urban Decay has an exciting new collection based on the film. Years back Urban Decay released an Alice in Wonderland palette and it sold out almost instantaneously so I was pretty darn excited to get my hands on the new Urban Decay Alice Through the Looking Glass Eyeshadow Palette ($75 CAD). Today I have all the swatches and my reviews on the blog. To read on, click........

Packaging:
Urban Decay is going back to the basics with this cardboard palette. I've really come to enjoy the recent plastic/metal compacts so I am not loving the fact that this is cardboard (they dent and wear a lot faster), but the design is certainly very pretty. The entire palette is covered in a beautiful psychedelic kaleidoscope pattern and when you lift the lid, you get a pretty framed mirror and a double-flapped door that opens to reveal a beautiful 3D butterfly. Additionally, quotes from the story are embossed in gold all around the palette, great for serious lovers of the original book.

Included is a double-ended shader and blender shadow brush. The palette holds 20 shadows and each is 1.3 grams. The insert that holds the shadows is removable for easy access.

Formulation:
The color selection of the Alice Through the Looking Glass palette is quite unique; there are a lot of brights but you still get a handful of easy-to-wear neutrals. The majority of shades are all very nice but the dark metallics and shimmers are definitely far superior compared to the others.

Looking Glass: Soft satin pink cream.
Hatter: Fresh grass green satin with silver sparkles; this one is slightly sheer.
Lily: Shimmery iridescent pink-white.
Heads Will Roll: Bright aquamarine with golden sparkles. The pigmentation is decent on this one.
Time: Dark navy blue with silvery blue shimmers. This one is super rich and buttery.
