I was super hesitant about buying this palette and its pair the Glinda when they came out because of pricing, but I realized once I took that leap and bought them that they were great! the colors are perfect, they're super smooth and silky. Plus once the colors run out or can't be used anymore new colors can be bought and popped into this palette! Beats having to buy a whole other palette!
Oh wow the colors I'm in love!
I used to be a devotee of Nars, but I'm switching sides slowly.
I love stories like the Wizard of Oz and Alice in Wonderland, and I've loved all the special edition palettes coming out from various brands, and when I saw this one I loved it immediately. The Glinda pallette didn't entice me because it was bright and sparkly, not really my thing, but this one with the mattes, the smokey colours, and the unexpected brights, I love it. had to have it! I was sure the lipstick would be a flop for me, but I didn't care. I bought it for myself at Sephora for a little treat because I had a bad week.
Oh. My. God.
I used it once and I couldn't stop imagining what I would do next time or the next time, or considering taking everything off to try a new idea. People said they didn't understand why this or that color is in the palette, I disagree, I think they all go together great. I used jealous by blending across the 2 colors and making a line at an angle from the middle of my eye to the outer edge of my brow on top of a smokey base of the matte brown/tan colors, highlighted the outside with the pale shimmery highlighting color, and it looked great. I love a little unexpected pop of color, I think that's great to add as a possibility, and I think it fits the character too.
I have so many ideas on what to do with the palette. Just open your imagination and give it a shot, try anything!
Also, I tried this lipstick, AMAZING! The color is not only vibrant and amazing, it lasted forever basically, and it is gorgeous. It's sold me on their lip pencils, I'm going to pick up another one in their darkest shade (I love dark lips) as soon as I can.
Their eyeliner is amazing. I own literally 9 of them that I use regularly, and I may have more stashed away that I forgot about. I don't need to try it to tell you it rocks. Love that it's in there, I can toss this in my purse and go and have EVERYTHING. I love it. I just get my BB cream and this and go and I'm covered. I'm only scared that it may crack, or something, inside my bag, and then I wouldn't have it anymore! So I am nervous because I love it too much haha. (that's just me being silly, it wont do that ofcourse, UD products are very good)
