I’m back with another post for you! I am continuing the Urban Decay Oz segment with the next palette, Theodora.
Quick brush up on who Theodora is — she is the Wicked Witch of the West (sometimes referred to as Elphaba – if you saw the musical Wicked). She is very cunning, yet charismatic. Manipulative, yet alluring. And the colors in this palette are very fitting for her character.
The differences in the packaging between the Glinda palette and this one are almost light vs dark, which I love. When a brand releases more than one version of a product/theme in a collection, then I definitely can appreciate the contrast and am more willing to buy all of the sets. MAC should take a lesson! (Don’t get me wrong, I love MAC…)
Anyhoo, the beautiful browns and greens are so great! Reminds me of a mysterious, enchanted forest. If anyone remembers, the Wicked Witch of the West is green in the original Wizard of Oz and in Wicked. So since Mila Kunis isn’t donning the green makeup (at least not in the above photo), Urban Decay decided (cleverly so) to pay homage to that by giving us some green in this palette! Let’s get to the shadows & swatches!
Notice the names? How clever! Especially the name Jealous and how it’s green! I love it. Same application and quality as the Glinda palette. Very smooth, creamy, buttery. And extremely pigmented, as the swatches below demonstrate:
This palette also comes with a black eye pencil called Zero (pictured above, swatched below), a high gloss lip color called Theodora (swatched & pictured below), and a “Get the Look” card (pictured below).
This is the palette that I initially assumed would work best for me, because I gravitate toward darker eyeshadow. But, believe it or not, while I am excited about this palette, I am more excited for Glinda due to the challenge it will bring me in deciding how to wear the shades.
Either way, I am about to have a fun couple of weeks as I explore this palette and all of its possibilities!
The palette is $49 and can be purchased at Sephora, ULTA, and UrbanDecay.com. There are 6 shadows, but 8 shades. That breaks down to an estimated $6/shadow and even less per shade since there are 8. Definitely an affordable palette. Good on Urban Decay, especially since you get a lip color AND an eye liner!
What do you think of the Theodora palette? Have you purchased it? Will you be purchasing it? Let me know!
Until next time. Stay lovely,
P.S. Here’s the “Get the Look” card:
