Theodora

When I saw that Urban Decay were releasing two Oz themed palettes, I was so excited to see what they would look like. The Glinda palette is based on Michelle William's make up in the film and consists of paler, more pastel colour. The Theodora palette is based on Mila Kunis' make up and has darker more earthy shades and a red lip colour- right up my street!

Of course I went for the Theodora palette as I knew I would wear all of the colours more than the Glinda palette. What's really great about these palettes is that you get six full sized eye shadows (two of which are duo colours) and you can pop the eye-shadows out of the tin when they are done or if you want to add different colours and buy a single eye shadow to put into the palette instead. You also get a travel sized 24/7 Glide On Eye Pencil in Zero and a full sized Super Saturated High Gloss Lip Color in F-Bomb

Products Used:

Monu Illuminating Primer (Review coming soon)
Urban Decay Broken Eye Shadow
Urban Decay 24/7 Glide On Eye Pencil in Zero
Urban Decay Super Saturated High Gloss Lip Colour in F-Bomb


I decided to so something a bit different with the palette because any of the blog posts I had seen of this were using the 'Get the Look' card that is included with the palette. I wanted to create a simple look based on this Guide to Grungey Eye Make-up video by Lisa Eldridge that I watched recently just using the Eye Pencil and the Lip Colour. I wanted my skin to look quite fresh and illuminated so I used my new Monu primer and kept rosy, highlighted cheeks with the Estée Lauder cream blush and High Beam. I used a very small amount of powder as Double Wear Light doesn't really need to be powdered anyway. I added the last photo of me wearing the olive/golden colour from the duo Spell eye shadow almost as a liner beneath my eyes just to show the versatility of this palette.

I had been wanting to try the Glide On eye liners for a long time and I wasn't disappointed, they really do glide on and they are so easy to blend. The Super Saturated Lip Colours were another Urban Decay release I had been wanting to try out for a long time. It is so easy to use and feels very comfortable to wear. I love the glossy finish too. I'm definitely going to have to get another one of these. All of the eye shadows are velvety, highly pigmented and easy to work with and blend.

I added everything up and you actually get over €160 worth of products here, whereas I paid €36. I think that's a pretty good deal.

Once again , I'm so impressed with the quality of this Urban Decay palette. They always make great gifts or just a great addition to any make-up collection and such value for money. I can't wait to use it some more!

  1. Honestly Emma, your photos were breath taking! Your skin is perfect and the makeup so perfectly applied. I love seeing this set, I wonder if it is sold in the US. I am fond of the old name "Theodora". I read your list of cosmetics and am anxious to read your future review of the latest Maybelline mascara. Thank you, Emma, hope things are going well with you all! ♥
