Earlier today I blogged about the Urban Decay The Great and Powerful Oz Glinda palette and promised a review of the Theodora one. So here I am!
The Theodora Palette
Theodora’s palette is edgier and more sultry than the Glinda. The packaging is moody and colourful. The shades inside really surprised me – not what I expected at all.
Swatches – Row 1
The palette includes:
- Broken – pale cream satin
- Beware – Warm chocolate matte
- Bewitch – dark charcoal brown satin
- West – deep metallic brown shimmer
- Spell – 2 shades in 1 – black satin with green and gold shimmer/gold metallic with tonal glitter
- Jealous – 2 shades in 1 – pale green pearl / dark green pearl.
- Super Saturated High Gloss Lip Color in Theodora – bright red cream
- Travel 24/7 Glide-on Eye Pencil in Black
What surprised me about this palette was the neutral matte shades. They are gorgeous! That being said the dark green pearl shade is my absolute favourite.
And the Super-Saturated Lip Gloss…
As I mentioned in my previous post aach palette comes with a tutorial showing you how to re-create the look step-by-step. Of course you can free-style it and create your own look, which is what I tend to do. The palettes incorporate Urban Decays Build Your Own format so if there is a shade that you don’t fancy you can just pop it out and add in another.
I should also point out (in case you didn’t read my Glina palette review) that the eyeshadows are made using the new formula rather than the old. This means less chance of fall-out and a more pigmented look all round. I find a flat shader brush is perfect for these shadows with a clean fluffy brush to blend.
The price really impressed me. At €40/£35 these are cheaper than I would have imagined. Considering the number of shades, the Build Your Own tin, the 24/7 liner and the High Gloss Lip Color this is a steal. They are available from House of Fraser and Debenhams.
Love the neutrals!
