Urban Decay-Oz The Great and Powerful-Glinda Palette

Magic in a Palette!
All shiny & new Urban Decay Glinda Palette
It has been so long since I have gotten anything from Urban Decay I nearly forgot about how much I love their products! Now I just can't get enough after this palette and now the love affair begins again, ha ha! Urban Decay came out with two of these themed on the recent Disney film and boy I am happy. The Glinda Palette I thought was very me with it's pinks/purples and glitter, the Theodora Palette is dark so with the two you have good vs evil! Without a doubt I went with the good witch Glinda :-)


The Urban Decay Oz The Great and Powerful Glinda Palette is so well packaged I nearly didn't want to open it! It also came with a How-to slip which I did follow and I was really pleased with how simple it was. The I really think the palette is versatile that I can come up with a day look and a nighttime look with it and everything else in between. Out of all the palettes I have ever tried this one really made me experiment.


The palette come with 6 full size eyeshadows two are duos! Half size 24/7 eyeliner pencil and Super Saturated high gloss lip colour and I just love it all. The palette also has a massive mirror in it, but some may take issue due to the fact the mirror doesn't stay upright by itself. This is not an issue for me as I usually hold a mirror with one hand when doing my eyes.

My swatches don't do this palette justice at all.
Tornado is a beautiful smokey purple
Aura is an iridescent blue that looks pearly white in the palette
Aura is an iridescent pearly pink.
Magic a gorgeous pastel pink with a blue that is buildable. 


Illusion is what I use as my base colour and is peachy and shimmery.
Oz, glittery gold and there can be some fall out with the glitter so I just use a tissue on my cheek while applying this.
Oz, silver glitter and same applies with the fallout for the glitter need to use that tissue.
South is grey verging on brown with micro glitter with not as much fall out as Oz.


The 24/7 eyeliner pencil in Rockstar is a dark purple with a hint of shimmer, it is one of the easiest eyeliners I have ever ever used and I love it, I will be purchasing more of these in the future!

Finally we have the Super-Saturated Lip Colour in Glinda which ticks all the boxes of being glossy and feels hydrating. The colour just seems to enhance my own lip colour and it has some shimmer!

Overall Verdict:
I absolutely love this palette and I think it was well worth it for my hubby to get this for me :-) I find myself reaching for it anytime I am doing my eyes and forgetting about all the other eyeshadows that I have. The lasting power is fantastic on all the products included and my eye look lasted in the heatwave we had here in Ireland July (with no primer). Other bonus is that I can reuse the palette and refill as I start to use the shadows up :-) Downfall- It's only limited edition! I also thought at €40.00 it was so worth it.

What do you think of the Glinda palette? Is it something on your wishlist? Let me know in the comments below.
