I can’t begin to tell you how absolutely EXCITED I am that I am finally able to get my hands on this Alice in Wonderland Book of Shadows from Urban Decay!!
From the UD website :
“What a dream come true! When Disney called to ask if we would design a product for the launch of Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland, we were like, “Um…. Yes!” The result is this truly amazing (and seriously collectible) Book of Shadows.
Open the palette to reveal a pop-up scene of Alice in the mushroom forest. Her “drink me” bottle discarded, she staggers past towering mushrooms, only to cross paths with a very peculiar, hookah-smoking caterpillar. A large mirror rests behind the scene – you feel as if you are transported into the film itself.
Hidden inside a secret drawer are 16 best-selling Eyeshadows, given topsy-turvy names like White Rabbit, Jabberwocky and Oraculum. Alongside them lie travel sizes of Eyeshadow Primer Potion and two 24/7 Eye Pencils. From smoky neutral eyes to flashes of hallucinogenic green and purple, the looks you can create are as endless as the rabbit hole itself. Anyone who loves Urban Decay, Tim Burton, Disney, or Alice in Wonderland absolutely MUST have this palette. Even the Mad Hatter would say this Book of Shadows delivers it all.”
These colors are just awesome (granted, none of them are NEW, but still!) The pop-up display is uber cute too!
So as you can see from the shades above – they’ve all been given topsy-turvy wonderland names, but in case you’re wondering, here’s the rundown :
Underland is actually Flash // Alice is actually Pain Killer
Oraculum is actually Baked // Queen is actually Last Call
Chessur is actually Chopper // White Rabbit is actually Polyester Bride
Wonderland is actually Mauie Wowie // Curiouser is actually Grifter
Muchness is actually X // Mushroom is actually well, Mushroom lol
Midnight Tea Party is actually Midnight Cowboy
Vorpal is actually S&M // Absolem is actually Homegrown
Drink Me, Eat Me is actually Sin
Mad Hatter is actually Twice Baked // Jabberwocky is actually Oil Slick
Although none of the shadows are new and many can be found in the other Books of Shadows – this is still a great investment if you’re new to UD or just want some from Book I and some from Book II without having to carry them both around.
You also get the Eye Primer Potion and TWO of the 24/7 eyeliner pencils in Zero and Flipside. Anyone who knows me knows that I absolutely ADORE the Eye Primer Potion – besides, the bottle is amazing too!
And, now that this is on its way to me – I can start drooling over the OPI Alice Collection…YUMMMY
With names like Absolutely Alice (blue glitter), Mad as a Hatter (Multi-glitter), Thanks-So-Muchness (shimmery red) and Off With Her Red (Sizzling hot red) – how can you resist??
I’ll add swatches of the eyeshadows later this week!
