Urban Decay was inspired by the new Disney film, Oz The Great and Powerful to create the Glinda palette. Michelle Williams plays the part of Glinda the Good Witch. (Check out my review of the Theodora the Bad Witch Palette.) This limited edition palette is all about the good witch! This set includes “duo-shades” that are split in half, with a different color on each side of the pan. They also come with a travel-size 24/7 Glide-on Eye Pencil and a Super-Saturated High Gloss Lip Color pencil.
The Glinda palette has a celestial design with dreamy qualities and pretty colors of peach, pink and gold.
Top: Tornado, Aura, Magic, Glinda lip pencil
Middle: Rockstar eyeliner
Bottom: Illusion, Oz, South
All swatches are on my bare skin with no primer.
The Glinda Palette – $49.00
Vibrant deep purple shimmer
Deep purple with hints of pink. I love this sort of purple.
Iridescent white with blue shift/Iridescent white with red shift
Iridescent white with pink shift.
Iridescent white with blue-violet shift.
I love both of these colors! I find colors like this to be a lot of fun as accent colors or to add extra dimension to a look.
Pinkish purple with a golden shimmer
Soft orchid pink with purple undertones and golden shimmer. I love this so much!
Pale peach satin
Pastel peach. I like this shade and find it flattering with my eyes. Also, I like it paired up with Tornado or layered under Aura.
Gold with gold glitter/Silver with silver glitter
Pale beige-gold with tons of gold and silver glitter. Lots and lots of fallout, like the old UD shades. I greatly dislike this shade.
Metallic silver with silver glitter. Slightly less fallout. I like this shade slightly better than the gold side. While I love gold and silver shadows, I absolutely hate glitter fallout.
Warm pale gray shimmer with silver micro-glitter
Shimmery warm grey with silver glitter. I’m a fan of warm greys.
Glinda Super Saturated High Gloss Lip Color (.10 oz)
Light sheer nude
Light seashell pink. I really like this for when I need a neutral lip so it doesn’t compete with everything else I’m wearing. This might actually be the first Super Saturated High Gloss Lip Color pencil that I own.
Rockstar 24/7 Glide-on Eye Pencil (.03 oz, Travel-sized)
Deep, red-based purple. Sometimes I use this pencil shade to fill in my brows when my hair is darker. This is a shade I like.
The eyeshadows total $108 for .05 oz each. The lip pencil is .10 oz for $19. The travel size pencil is .03 for about $14. Typically the Build Your Own Palette costs $18 and comes with the Walk of Shame eyeshadow (a great nude skintone shade for blending out the edges of color; also found in the Naked Basics palette) and a travel size eyeshadow brush. This set doesn’t have WoS or a brush. Depending on the value that you assign the LE palette packaging, the total value for each set is between $141 – $159. To me, this is a great deal for $49, especially if you’re a fan of the Wizard of Oz and love the packaging.
This set also comes with a pretty tutorial to pull off the Glinda the Good Witch look.
Do you need this palette?
If you’re a fan of Urban Decay, of the Wizard of Oz or iridescent colors, you need this palette! The only item I’m not fond of is Oz. I HATE the old style glitter fall out. It’s such a mess. However, I absolutely love the rest of the shades and I really love the neutral lip color. I’m always chasing after shades like Aura, so I really love seeing Urban Decay offer these colors. Additionally, in my opinion, this set is a great value for the price of $49. Of the two palettes – Glinda and Theodora – Glinda is actually my favorite. I love more of the shades in this one, as well as both pencils that were included. Also, I’m very happy that Urban Decay included ‘Get the Look’ cards. I love those!
