Why did I consider getting the Urban Decay Glinda Palette?
I love Urban Decay eyeshadows and ever since they announced this palette, I’ve been wanting to see it in person and try it out. I also got the Theodora palette and even though I love it, I think the colors on this palette are more unique and difficult to find dupes for. By the way, Urban Decay created these two limited edition palettes inspired by Disney’s Oz The Great And Powerful movie.
Where can you get it?
You can get the Urban Decay Glinda Palette online at Sephora.com
What did I find in the package?
This palette comes in a tin container that flips open and which contains a full-sized mirror. One complaint I have is that the mirror doesn’t stay up.. makes it kind of useless since you have to be constantly holding it. Inside, you find six removable eye shadow pans (0.05 oz) and a travel size Rockstar eyeliner pencil. There’s also a super saturated lip color (0.10 oz) but it doesn’t fit inside the actual palette. Glinda feels very portable and easy to travel with.
Time to try it. What did it do for me?
This is a super fun palette for Spring and Summer. The colors go from light to neutral to deep. I find all of the shades to be very wearable, and to compliment a wide range of skin tones and eye colors. There are so many looks that can be created with this palette!. All of the shadows are very creamy and pigmented, and their lasting power is amazing. They blend in a breeze and feel buttery to the touch. I only had a little bit of fall out with the glittery shades in the OZ pan, but that’s it. If you want to see all the dupes I found for it watch the YouTube video above.
The Super Saturated High Gloss Color in Glinda is a muted mauve pink lip product. It has a shiny finish, close to a lipgloss but without the stickiness. Surprisingly, it lasted about 2 hours on my lips. I tried to look for something similar to this in my collection but couldn’t find anything (score!). I love the color so much because it’s a perfect nude color for my lips. This is the first time I’ve tried the super saturated lip product from Urban Decay, and the pigmentation is spot on! Good job UD!
The 24/7 Glide on Eye Pencil in Rockstar is a deep purple eyeliner. It’s one of my favorite Urban Decay eyeliners because of the intense purple color which makes it perfect for a smokey eye look with just a pop of color. I love to smudge it on the upper and lower lashlines!! It looks so beautiful :) The only drawback? It doesn’t stay in my waterline at all :( Can’t a girl have it all?!?

What is my Verdict?
Urban Decay Glinda is a beautiful palette overall and I happily recommend it to anyone. Urban Decay is pretty consistent with the super pigmented, velvety shadows, and this is no exception.
