I must admit when I saw so many people raving about the Alice in Wonderland eye shadow pallet from Urban Decay, I thought it was all due to the fact it was Disney and people only wanted it because of the brand. I think I was wrong.
When I saw this I had to have it immediately! The packaging is so beautiful, its floral, colourful design is mesmerizing. The top compartment has the mirror and hidden butterfly which you can make fly – its a really cute little extra.
The bottom compartment is where all the real passion is! The colours are immense! There is literally every colour you need, from nude to fresh and bright. The pigments really stand out and some of them have a glittery effect, some are matte. Literally something for every occasion and look.
This pallet is so pretty, almost too pretty to touch! I haven’t used it yet as I haven’t been anywhere that justifies smudging them hahaha!! I have done a little swatch for you guys though so you can see just how beautiful these shades appear on skin.

So yep – I have become yet another Urban Decay Alice in Wonderland fan.
I know who I was when I got up this morning? but I must have changed several times since then.
My favourite shades so far are lily, duchess & royal flush. Yes, they are nudes!!!! But the pigments in them are unreal..! I’m going to try out different looks though with all of the colours and see what I come up with.
Urban Decay you have excelled yourselves, once again.
