Well im positively and utterly nearly squeeling whilst writing this as i have been wanting and camping by my postbox since i ordered these bad-boys at the weekend. Now i have to say we were all lead to believe that the release was today and well it was as i saw them "Publically" be released last night. Now im a die hard omg if i want something i will not rest till i get it fan. I will tell you i waited 6 hours on google seeing all the hype from the USA and some deep feeling in me was like "be patient" a uk link will come soon..... and like the karate kid on a mediation with his sensai well "BINGO......HOUSE............WE HAVE A WINNER"
Deadication pays off if you believe, in the spirit of this palatte review.
So dispatched and arrived today.. yay !! sorry lol Review right lol
Prettiness needs no words so il just show you the amazement that is Glinda and then when i come to the swatches you can read the shade, feel and colour pay-off thoughts i had.
- Glinda (she is my sparkly ball of yummy, now if i had not turned down the sparkle... believe me i tried and failed i was just blinded lol )
Inside .... Card on how to achieve the perfect Glinda and the super saturated Glinda Gloss
(Sorry its Glitter-rific !! )
So Swatches and firstly the Pencil in Rockstar
Now im not sure as ive seen reviews and i think you need to see this in the flesh or go on the website to get a true reflection of how purpley this pencil actually is .... its like tornado a colour below in pencil form as ive seen said this is uttterly true !! Its smooth and lush. I love my kohl and i tend to be a total black (perversion) sticker ... i dont know why i havent moved to other colours as you would think hey this girl loves her makeup come on move on to a few colours you know will suit your eyes. meh ... but no longer... ive already been on urban decays suppliers in the Uk and have a list as long as my arm now ..... Its a bad move when i find a brand i love as i will buy it out like i need carribean chicken lol (Fav meal incase your wondering)
Now with shimmer ive used so many brands and this micro-glitter you can sometimes feel it being scratchy on the eye and also fall all over your face and ruin your facial makeup. I will post my tips for eye looks later if you suffer from this as i do and even with fine milled shimmer still need help. Sharing is caring !
Anyway this Buttery lush shimmer goes on to swatch like paper and pen were married and made little babies and this is a grandchild. It sits doesnt move....you just rub and blend out and your left with this amazing colour.
Urban decay are brand leaders for a reason and this shade as first is prime example why ! Your bored of smokey "black" jazz up up with some tornado .. hell yes i can live with that statement.
Fellow green eyed babes ... purpley shades and green eyes are marriage in heaven so go mental with this colour. I am going to be later in my pic up load of the looks i achieve.
Illusion and Magic (Magic is the Pinky and Illusion is the more Yellowy toned one)
Again im stumped .... I was i must admit worried i would love the other palatte more as im more of a neutral gal...Stop, rewind, erase im not i love glinda and these colours as i go down you will see why as i swatched them i was giddy, Like its infused with glittery laughing dust of glee. Its glinda it could very well be ?? Lol
Magic ... ooo its like a buttery, light shimmer to satiny feel. See the shimmer can be so irridesent to look at you can really not assume one shimmer is like another in this palatte. I just trust my pics are good enough to show you how the shimmers differ. Its a pinky lovely girly stroke of colour to a dull and depressing world. Really it is .... I cant wait to use this and honestly ive seen a look im dying to use this for as ive seen a look where theres a neutral undertone and this colour catch just as a swipe to pop the eye. Its amazing and if i cant pull it off i will post the pic so anyone with more experience can try or if it suits your eye colour better.
Illusion.... Can i just take a minute to pick myself up and really just smack myself lol Perfect all round as a highlight for the brow bone, undertone to blend any look, just as a quick off and go colour on the lid.... you name a use .. this baby does the job.
Again a buttery lovely swatch and not as shimmered hence why you can multi use it .... dont worry you wont look like a 80's flash dance dress up with this as a highlight ... i promise. lol
Aura (Duo )
Now this i will admit is the crappest picture ever of this shade ... I could not get it to focus with the shimmer at all so please trust me youtube this colour for a intime review. If your in anyway confused if youd like this palatte as this colour alone (its a duo) will make you go "I need this palatte"
If urban decay fairies can hear me ... make these 2 colours please i beg you as i will cry when these are finished with ... im no lie considering getting another palatte just for this colour in the dire mentalness in my head that they wont. Crazy i know
Now the Aura lightest blue on the left ... it looks white but it has a hint of like a baby blue its stunning and i cant explain it any more. We know all these are buttery lushiness that Urban decay are known for but these shade are beyond OZ there heaven.
The pinky side again its beautiful but the blue is the one that makes this Duo special. I would not on my life circular rub this colour as god help me il be struck down lol to ruin this would just be like dropping it. By all means if you want to then do as im sure the little baby born from this Duo being swirrled is like a fluffly OZ cloud. Marshmallow !!
Best Glinda shades by far out a mile !!
OZ (Second Duo)
Now i have seen people say the gold of this duo is like flecked old formula Urban decays and i didnt want to agree but you can feel it... swatch it and feel it on your finger you can feel it instantly. Not to say i wouldnt use this as i think with some hints and tips you could use this as an amazing over glitter. One tip i heard was use a clear eye gel liner or a mascara on your brush and apply this after to make it stick and not fall over your face. I will be using these tips if i use this colour. I think i would use this under eye as a amazing popper colour. Jazz your waterline Kohl add this underneath.
The silver is in a totally different league and how they differ so has i admit baffled me ? The silver i can only describe it like eye shadow formed liquid metal.....Its that amazing and pigmented plus the colour payoff. Its just like it now i think of my liquid metals. It doesnt feel like the old style like the gold... this is as smooth as a babies botty !! Trust me this silver is a totally different feel, you wont feel the glitters like the gold. Plus i doubt i will get the drop off like the golds been making people think either so we will see when i use it.
Now i struggled to find a word to describe this as to me its like a greeny,goldy and brown all mixed in together. Pewter is what ive come to think now. However that name sounds dirty and i dont like it lol so South is amazing if you didnt want to risk the Gold in OZ then south is the go to colour. Its less in your face with none of the issues. So south would also be excellent alone on your eye. Again butter like texture and amazing.
Glinda - Super saturated Lip Pencil
I dont know why my camera is being a total cow today lets be honest lol As this is beautiful , its a nudey rudey colour ... Are we sure Glinda is good ??? As this colour is naughty in the sense it is rich, colour pay-off amazing and your lips go from chapped to like a models in a space of seconds.
This is not glittered as my camera makes out. Its not tacky gloss either. Its like lip buttery goodness...No other words.
So in review glinda is amazing and i cannot wait to use this tonight and upload pictures.
Its an amazing offering for Urban decay and i bow down your stars. No wonder movies want you to make ranges as you make them special in everway,shape and form.
Its unique with the colours and formulas in the shadows. Your getting a huge value for money with these palatte believe me. It may seem expensive but il do the math in a bit and update its not.. infact its an investment and it makes you feel all warm and gooey inside.
Ive felt it since i got them and blown away with the quality all in the same time.
If your sick of neutrals and want a change then spice up your life with glinda.... simples.
Urban decay is a genius like the wizard of OZ x
