Urban Decay | The Glinda Palette

I just couldn't resist this palette from Urban Decay. I was so excited about the release of the Oz The Great and Powerful palettes and decided to order The Glinda Palette, as it was something a little different. As beautiful as the Theodora palette was, I already own umpteen neutral palettes!

Urban Decay Oz The Great And Powerful, The Glinda Palette: £35.00 via Debenhams

Firstly, let me talk about how good value for money this palette is. You get six full sized Urban Decay shadows (two are duos), a mini 24/7 glide on eyeliner in Rockstar, and a full sized super saturated lip colour in Glinda. That's over £100.00 worth of products, for £35.00. Bargain! 

The packaging is also another plus. Its absolutely beautiful, like a glittery cloud. The case is made of the same tin as the Naked 2 palette and the Build Your Own palettes. And guess what? It is a build your own palette, as the eyeshadows inside are removable and can be replaced! 

The six shades in the palette are all very girly (to reflect the good witch Glinda, of course!), and are all up to the usual Urban Decay high quality.

There's Tornado - a dark purple with shimmer. 
Aura - a white duo shade with one side blue iridescent and the other pink iridescent. 
Magic - a pinky purple shade with gold shimmer. 
Illusion - a pale peach with shimmer. 
OZ - The second duo, metallic gold and metallic silver both with that pesky UD chunky glitter! 
South - A taupe/grey with shimmer and fine glitter.

The Super Saturated lip pencil in Glinda is a lovely pinky nude with an almost metallic finish, I really love it! I'm tempted to try more of these pencils from Urban Decay now. 

I should have swatched this and the Rockstar liner, I'll add a pic in at a later date.

The palette also comes with a 'get the look' card. All in all this is a great set, a real hit for Urban Decay. It feels like they've really taken their time with the Oz palettes, they don't feel rushed like some other releases. They seem to have pushed the boat out here, as its such good value for money! Plus you can refill with similar shades when you run out of one! 

Urban Decay gets a 9 out of 10, just get rid of that chunky glitter!
