Review & Swatches- Urban Decay Return of Oz Glinda and Theodora Palettes

Hello there,

So I think its that time of the year again where I go into Urban Decay review mode. I’ve purchased quite a few of the newest Urban Decay products and thought it would be a good idea to review and swatch them for you.  Today’s post will focus on both the Glinda and Theodora Palettes from the Oz Great and Powerful Colection and soon to follow will be  the Naked Basics Palette and maybe even the Naked Foundation.

Well lets just get to it then 😀

GlindaPaletteSwatchesLipsEyesGlindaPaletteSwatchesLipsEyesGlinda Super Saturated High Gloss Lip Color: A light sheer nude with a glossy finish. Feels very hydrating and packed full of color and longevity.

 Rockstar 24/7 Glide-on Eye Pencil: A deep eggplant. Very soft water resistant formula.

THE VERDICT:

 9/10 for both of these limited edition beauties.

 Over all the pigmentation, blend-ability and texture of the shadows were impeccable minus one or two of them. One of the biggest perks of these palettes is that they come with water resistant eyeliners and super soft and glossy lip pencils that are sooooo easy to use 😀

 The packaging is wonderful. It’s made from sturdy metal tin, adorned with a super cute image and comes with a big mirror inside.  You also get an idea card showing you how to do a few looks. I also really like that the palette is modeled from their build your own palettes so you can just exchange your shadows out with any other urban decay shadows you might own and customize your own palette 😀

Keep a look out for more reviews from Urban Decay and other brands too.
