Urban Decay’s Book of Shadows Alice In Wonderland Set

Hey beauties and my Urban Decay lovers out there! I just had to blog really quick and let you know that the Urban Decay’s Book of Shadows Alice In Wonderland Set is available at Ulta and Sephora also have the Urban Decay Disney Alice In Wonderland Palette available online too. I have to say many of the stores are sold out already and I can’t believe it.

I got a chance to view the palette, but I personally decided not to purchase it. Not because I did not like because I LOVE it, but the colors in the palette I already own. So, my point is that if you have missed out on the book of shadows during this past holiday get it today because this is limited edition and it will be gone. You will love how pigmented and soft Urban Decay’s shadows are. I like them even better than MAC shadows!!

Info about this Limited Edition Set:
Tim Burton, Urban Decay, and Alice in Wonderland?! Together, the result is a breathtaking Book of Shadows worthy of collector status.

What it does:
When Disney called to ask if Urban Decay would design a product for the launch of Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland, they were like, “Um….yes!” The result is this truly amazing (and seriously collectible) Book of Shadows. Tucked inside a hidden drawer are 16 best-selling Eyeshadows, given topsy-turvy names like White Rabbit, Jabberwocky, and Oraculum. Alongside them lie travel sizes of Eyeshadow Primer Potion and two 24/7 Eye Pencils. From smoky neutral eyes to flashes of hallucinogenic green and purple, the looks you can create are as endless as the rabbit hole itself. The top opens to reveal a pop-up scene of Alice in the mushroom forest. Her “drink me” bottle discarded, she staggers past towering mushrooms, only to cross paths with a very peculiar, hookah-smoking caterpillar. A large mirror rests behind the scene, making you feel as if you are transported into the film itself. Anyone who loves Urban Decay, Tim Burton, Disney, or Alice in Wonderland absolutely MUST have this palette. Even the Mad Hatter would say this Book of Shadows delivers it all.

This set contains:
(16) Eyeshadows:
-Underland (Flash)
-Alice (Painkiller)
-Oraculum (Baked)
-Queen (Last Call)
-Chessur (Chopper)
-White Rabbit (Polyester Bride)
-Wonderland (Maui Wowie)
-Curiouser (Grifter)
-Muchness (X)
-Mushroom (Mushroom)
-Midnight Tea Party (Midnight Cowboy Rides Again)
-Vorpal (S&M)
-Absolem (Homegrown)
-Drink Me Eat Me (Sin)
-Mad Hatter (Twice Baked)
-Jabberwocky (Oil Slick)
-Travel-size 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Zero and Flipside
-Eyeshadow Primer Potion in Sin

What it is formulated WITHOUT:
– Sulfates

Stay tuned I will post swatches of the colors too!
