Alice in Wonderland The Book Of Shadows by Urban Decay. Review and Swatches
Looks like everyone is crazy about Alice now. What do we have so far? Alice in Wonderland collection by OPI, Paul and Joe Alice collection (probably I should make a post about it for those of who who don’t know the details) and this Book of Shadows by Urban Decay which is probably the most wanted makeup item lately. Let me remind you that I already made posts about Book of Shadow Volume II and about Alice in Wonderland The Book Of Shadows (how it looks like).
And now it’s time for detailed review and swatches of this palette. Lets me say that I was 100% sure that I will be getting this palette when I first heard about it. Do you want to know why? I absolutely love Urban Decay eye products and it is SUCH a great deal!

What else is there to ask for?
Here is how all the goodies look like
Flipside – bright teal, gorgeous colour which is perfect for summer
Zero -black liner which every girl needs
The shadows are topsy-turvy in Underland but have real-World names 😉 There are no matte shadows plus most of them contain glitter and some contain lots of glitter. So here are the details!
Underland (Flash) – highly pigmented electric purple
Alice (Painkiller)– this is my favourite shade that can be described as very pigmented vibrant shimmering turquoise
Oraculum (Baked) rich cooper
Queen (Last Call) plum with burgundy
Chessur (Chopper) coppery fawn with silver microglitter
White Rabbit (Polyester Bride) it is a pale shade with lots of silver glitter
Wonderland (Maui Wowie) medium gold with silver glitter
Curiouser (Grifter) sheer lavender with lots of silver microglitter
Muchness (X) a absolutely love this “melon” colour which is described as gold with sheer peach tint
Mushroom (Mushroom) neutral taupe, will look great on everyone
Midnight Tea Party (Midnight Cowboy Rides Again) this is my least favourite colour because it has too much shimmer in it which falls all over your face no matter how careful you are. It would be a nice champagne shade without it
Vorapal (S&M) bright metallic silver, very nice shade
Absolem (Homegrown) warm mild green with
Drink Me, Eat Me (Sin) shimmering champagne
Mad Hatter (Twice Baked) brownie brown with gold glitter
Jabberwocky (Oil Slick) black with silver glitter. I have different black shades but didn’t have one with silver glitter so it is nice to have it now!
Zero, Flipside, Jabberwocky, Mad Hatter, Underland the rest goes the way they are in the palette.
My favourite items from this palette are:
Flipside 24/7 liner; Alice, Muchness, Mushroom, Vorpal and Absolem.
And I don’t really like:
White Rabbit, Midnight Tea Party and Curiouser because these shades have too many glitter in them.
And what about you? Did you get this palette already? Do you plan to? Why would you get it? What are your favourite items?
