Urban Decay's Oz:The Great & Powerful Palettes - Theodora

Hello everyone,and happy Valentines Day to you! :)

I'm not one for Valentines day in all honesty,but I thought I'd get into the swing of things by making a themed video.You can see my top beauty products for the occasion here - <3 Valentines Day Themed Beauty Products <3

Other than that,my day is free! So I'll get on with the overview/review and stop rambling. :3

Today I'll be showing you the Theodora palette.A look at the inside,the packaging and how well it swatches!

Urban Decay released two themed palettes for the next up and coming Disney movie,Oz The Great & Powerful,centred on a time before the original Wizard of Oz francise.Both palettes are based upon the different shades and colours designed to imply the two Witches in Oz,Theodora (The Wicked Witch of the West) and Glinda (The Good Witch of the South) 

Theodora's palette is much more smokey and rich than it's counterpart.The packaging that it comes in,a hard-wearing clip shut tin is very intricately decorated.I adore the dark wisps of shadow and green tinges.The outside cardboard box that it comes in,mimics the tin itself.The tin has rounded off edges.

On the back of the cardboard packaging,all of the colours and details of the product are listed with pictures.This generally applies to all Urban Decay palettes and I'm pleased that they do! It makes judging colours a lot easier and rounds off the first impression well.

Upon opening the tin,I was greeted with a sight that made my heart flutter a little.Yes,I squealed with happiness.These colours are perfection.

The palette features eyeshadow pans which pop out and are interchangeable with UD's new empty palette system,enabling the user to switch up the colours to preference and add new ones from their permanent lines! The palette sports a ma-hoos-ive mirror at the top too!

In the palette,you receive 6 full pans,with 8 different colours,as two of the pans are dual shades. "Spell" and "Jealous" are combi-shadows.You also get a travel sized 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in the shade "Zero"!

Names,in order from left to right are as followed - Top line : "Broken","Beware","Bewitch"
                                                                            Bottom line : "West","Spell","Jealous"

When opening the box,take care not to throw away the packaging until you've retrieved the included Super Saturated High-Gloss Lip Colour in "Theodora",which is a beautiful,clean red colour.True to it's name,it's amazingly glossy and smooth!

Now on to the swatches of shadows - 


My camera didn't quite pick up the majesty of them,but they are so ultra pigmented!! I can't even tell you how dreamy these were to try out.The shadows were creamy,opaque when they needed to be and smooth as a newborn's skin.The 24/7 liner was awesome too - smudge-proof and easy to glide,as was the pretty Theodora Super Saturated lip pencil! 

The dual colours make the palette more than worth their money..and along with the liner and lip pencil,you've got a bargain. This palette retails for £35.00 from Debenhams and other vendors of UD products vary.I'm in love with this palette,it's everything I want from a product! 

Have you ordered your Oz The Great & Powerful palette yet?
