Urban Decay x Alice Through the Looking Glass Lipsticks (Part 2)

Urban Decay Alice Through the Looking Glass Lipstick
Urban Decay Alice Through the Looking Glass Lipstick

Urban Decay Mirana Alice Through the Looking Glass Lipstick ($18.00 for 0.11 oz.) is described as a “matte berry with tonal shimmer.” It’s a deep burgundy with cool undertones and ruby micro-shimmer and sparkle. It had semi-opaque color payoff with a creamy, lightweight texture that had just a bit more slip than I’d think is ideal for such a deep shade. Some color gathered into lip lines, and as it wasn’t totally opaque, it appeared uneven in places. This shade wore well for five hours and was lightly hydrating. Tom Ford Beauty Jon (P, $36.00) is more shimmery, glossier (95% similar). Makeup Geek Acoustic (P, $15.00) is warmer, glossier (90% similar). MAC Jasper (LE, $17.50) is lighter, brighter (90% similar). Urban Decay Double Crossed (P, $17.00) is more shimmery, darker (85% similar). NYX Biker Babe (P, $7.50) is more shimmery, lighter, warmer (85% similar). Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Black Metal Dahlia (P, $18.00) is more shimmery, lighter, brighter (80% similar).

Urban Decay Iracebeth Alice Through the Looking Glass Lipstick ($18.00 for 0.11 oz.) is described as a “bright red matte.” It’s a bold, bright, pinky-red with subtle, cool undertones and a satin finish. It was intensely pigmented with a creamy, lightweight texture that applied smooth, even color without tugging on the lips. This shade wore well for six hours and was lightly hydrating. MAC Damn Glamorous (LE, $17.50) is warmer (95% similar). Makeup Geek Trophy Wife (P, $12.00) is cooler (95% similar). MAC Carmine Rouge (LE, $30.00) is lighter, brighter (90% similar).

Urban Decay x Alice Through the Looking Glass Lipsticks (Part 1)

Urban Decay Alice Through the Looking Glass Lipstick
Urban Decay Alice Through the Looking Glass Lipstick

Urban Decay Alice Alice Through the Looking Glass Lipstick ($18.00 for 0.11 oz.) is described as a “sheer nude with pink shift.” It’s a light-medium peachy-orange with warm undertones and iridescent pink shimmer. The warmer base paired with the finer, cooler shimmer made it harder to dupe, and the sheer coverage will make it one of those shades that can look different from person to person. The texture was creamy, lightweight, and moderately hydrating, though it only lasted for two and a half hours on me. Chanel Jersey Rose (DC, $34.00) is warmer (85% similar). Tarte Bellini (LE, $16.00) is less shimmery, warmer (85% similar). Urban Decay Fever (P, $18.00) is more shimmery (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Urban Decay Mad Hatter Alice Through the Looking Glass Lipstick ($18.00 for 0.11 oz.) is described as a “bright purple shimmer.” It’s a slightly brighter, medium-dark purple with cooler undertones and fine, metallic shimmer. The shimmer wasn’t particularly gritty or noticeable when I pressed my lips together, but I could feel the texture of the shimmer content in the bullet when applying initially. It had semi-opaque color payoff that could have applied a bit more evenly. This shade lasted for five hours and was very lightly hydrating. MAC Model Behavior (P, $17.50) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). MAC Violetta (P, $17.50) is darker, more muted, cooler (85% similar). Urban Decay Mad (P, $17.00) is darker, cooler (90% similar). MAC Foiled Rose (LE, $17.50) is lighter (90% similar). Urban Decay Plague (P, $17.00) is less shimmery, darker, glossier (90% similar). MAC Own the Look (LE, $19.00) is less shimmery, darker (85% similar). Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Alt-Girl (LE, $17.00) is darker, cooler, glossier (85% similar). MAC Royal Hour (LE, $17.50) is more shimmery, darker (85% similar). Urban Decay Flashback (P, $18.00) is darker, cooler, less glossy (85% similar). Urban Decay Mad (P, $18.00) is less shimmery, darker, cooler (90% similar). Urban Decay Backfire (P, $17.00) is lighter, more muted (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Urban Decay Time Alice Through the Looking Glass Lipstick ($18.00 for 0.11 oz.) is described as a “gunmetal navy with silver shimmer.” It’s a deep, purpled-blue with cool undertones and gold micro-shimmer and sparkle. It had semi-sheer to semi-opaque coverage with a thin, emollient consistency that was hard to keep in place as it would create “streaks” if I pressed my lips together, while color gathered in lip lines noticeably within an hour of wearing it. I would recommend wearing a lip liner or primer with this one to help it apply more evenly. It lasted for four hours and feathered very slightly on me. Urban Decay Time (P, $18.00) is more shimmery, darker, less glossy (90% similar). Smashbox Skinny Jeans (P, $21.00) is warmer (90% similar). NARS Unspoken (P, $27.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). Urban Decay Frostbite (LE, $17.00) is warmer (85% similar). Maybelline Midnight Blue (P, $7.49) is darker (85% similar).

Urban Decay Alice Through the Looking Glass Eyeshadow Palette

Urban Decay Alice Through the Looking Glass Eyeshadow Palette
Urban Decay Alice Through the Looking Glass Eyeshadow Palette

Urban Decay Alice Through the Looking Glass Eyeshadow Palette ($60.00 for 0.80 oz.) includes twenty eyeshadows–all “brand new” according to Urban Decay–arranged by character, going down in columns. Visually, it doesn’t seem like an immediately comprehensive palette, but I think you can get a variety of looks out of it afterall, though they will skew warm or otherwise brighter and more colorful. There are a couple of shades that seem more than similar to past shades released by the brand (Duchess is the worst offender). I wish they would have opted for either Looking Glass/Lily/Royal Flush and added a light and more mid-tone beige or taupe shade for transition and highlighting (on different skin tones). The more shimmery shades in the palette were really nice, but the more colorful, more matte shades were dusty and thin and require primer to apply well (personally, I didn’t find UD’s primer sufficient–they needed a stark white base). Worth noting, the colorful mattes have a thinner consistency that makes them less blendable next to the denser shimmers (there’s a disconnect in how they smooth over one another). Dream On really only functions if used with a damp brush or over an adhesive base. The third row is exceptionally good, and I really wish the rest of the palette was that impressive, so it leaves me with a myriad of feelings, because there are some really amazing shades in the palette… and some real misses. The palette will be available at Urban Decay on May 1st and other retailers to follow after that.

Looking Glass is a light pink with a soft, frosted finish. It had good color payoff with a soft, smooth texture that was very slightly dusty but didn’t have any fall out when applied. The color wore well for seven and a half hours on me. MAC Dance Flowers Dance (LE, $23.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). MAC Sweet Lust (P, $16.00) is more shimmery, darker (95% similar). Too Faced Taffy (LE, $16.00) is more shimmery, brighter (95% similar). Dior Trafalgar #1 (P, ) is more shimmery (90% similar). Natasha Denona Juneau (145S) (P, $29.00) is more shimmery, darker (90% similar). Clarins Garden Escape #5 (LE, ) is more shimmery (90% similar). Too Faced Pink Cheeks (LE, $16.00) is warmer (90% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty The Tease #5 (P, ) is more shimmery, darker (90% similar). LORAC Chiffon (LE, $19.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Lilac Dream #1 (P, ) is more shimmery, lighter (85% similar). Dior House of Pinks #1 (LE, ) is less shimmery, lighter (85% similar). MAC Enchanted Beauty (LE, $16.00) is lighter, more muted (85% similar). Dior Blazing Gold #2 (LE, ) is more shimmery, lighter, cooler (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Hatter is a bright, grassy green with subtle, warm undertones and a satin shimmer. It looked more matte applied to the skin than satiny. The texture was soft to the touch but quite dusty and looser overall, which resulted in the color sheering out with something for it to grab onto (like a tacky primer or base). I did not find it sufficient to use Urban Decay’s (Anti-Aging) Primer with it–the color was still faded and somewhat uneven. What color translated to the lid lasted for seven and a half hours. Make Up For Ever S312 Mint Green (P, $21.00) is lighter (95% similar). Colour Pop Cusp (LE, $5.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). MAC Hajar Karim (LE, $16.00) is less shimmery, darker, warmer (85% similar). Urban Decay Lightyear (P, $20.00) is more shimmery (85% similar). Illamasqua Fledgling (P, ) is less shimmery, brighter, warmer (85% similar). NARS Mad Mad World #2 (P, $25.00) is less shimmery, darker (80% similar). Make Up For Ever #53 (DC, $20.00) is darker (80% similar). Inglot #384 (P, $6.00) is less shimmery, darker, warmer (80% similar). BH Cosmetics Club Tropicana #2 (LE, ) is more shimmery, lighter (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Lily is a light, iridescent pinky-beige with subtle, warm undertones and a cooler, frosted sheen. It had semi-opaque pigmentation with a soft, lightly powdery texture that applied decently to the skin. The color wore for seven hours on me. Too Faced Poodle (LE, $16.00) is less shimmery, lighter (95% similar). Sephora Ex-boyfriend (LE, ) is cooler (95% similar). Urban Decay Flatline (LE, $19.00) is darker (95% similar).

Urban Decay Aura #1 (LE, $19.00) is darker (90% similar). Too Faced Delightful (LE, $16.00) is warmer (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Enchanted #1 (LE, ) is less shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Dior Magnify #2 (P, ) is less shimmery, warmer (90% similar). Make Up For Ever I902 Quartz (P, $21.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). MAC Pink Freeze (P, $16.00) is darker, cooler (85% similar). Maybelline Petunia Punk (120) (LE, $6.99) is less shimmery, darker (85% similar). Milani Bella Rose (29) (P, $4.49) is darker (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Heads Will Roll is a bright, medium blue-teal with cool undertones and a gold micro-sparkle over a matte finish. It is mostly matte in reality, as the sparkle gets lost and drops during initial application (or gets stuck between the brush bristles). It is silky and finely-milled but dusty and thin, so the color does sheer out when applied to the skin without a lightly tacky base–again, the brand’s own primer didn’t amplify the color much more than it appeared on bare skin, but it did make it appear more even and less dry on. It lasted for seven and a half hours on me. MAC Robin's Egg (LE, $16.00) is less shimmery, darker, warmer (85% similar). Make Up For Ever S234 Azure Blue (P, $21.00) is less shimmery, darker (95% similar). Colour Pop Ibiza (DC, $5.00) is more shimmery (85% similar). Natasha Denona Powder Blue (84V) (P, $29.00) is less shimmery, darker, more muted (85% similar). Kat Von D Hyperballad (LE, ) is darker, cooler (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Time is a subdued, medium black with cool undertones and fine navy blue and teal micro-shimmer that gives it a lighter, bluer coloring. The texture is soft, smooth, and thin, but it doesn’t sheer out a lot. I did notice, however, that the shimmer often blends beyond the darker base color, so you will want to use this with a tackier base to maintain the intensity of the shimmer. The color lasted for eight hours. Charlotte Tilbury Midnight Seduction (LE, ) is darker (90% similar). Tarte First Impressionism (LE, ) is less shimmery, darker (95% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty The Parisienne #2 (LE, ) is lighter, brighter, cooler (90% similar). Anastasia Denim Smokey (P, $12.00) is lighter, warmer (90% similar).

MAC No Taboos (LE, $22.00) is darker (85% similar). Tarte Riptide (LE, ) is darker, more muted, cooler (85% similar). Anastasia Prussian Blue (P, $12.00) is more shimmery, lighter, warmer (90% similar). bareMinerals Nightfall (LE, ) is lighter, brighter, cooler (85% similar). Sephora Sketch (LE, ) is more shimmery, lighter, warmer (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Reflection is a light-medium peach with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had decent to good color payoff with a soft, silky, and blendable texture that wasn’t too soft or too firm in the pan. This shade was easy to work with and applied well, while the color showed signs of fading after eight hours of wear. Too Faced Reindeer (LE, $16.00) is lighter (95% similar). Kat Von D Fringe (LE, ) is darker (95% similar). Buxom 5" Stiletto (LE, $12.00) is cooler (95% similar). Too Faced Georgia (P, $16.00) is darker, brighter (95% similar).

Smashbox Supermodel (P, ) is darker (85% similar). MAC You're Bluffing (LE, $16.00) is darker, cooler (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Gone Mad is a muted, dark purple with subtle, warm undertones and a smattering of lighter purple micro-sparkle over a primarily matte finish. It was dusty, semi-sheer, and difficult to blend. The color lasted for seven hours before fading. Urban Decay Faded (LE, $19.00) is more shimmery, lighter, brighter (95% similar). MAC Indian Ink (P, $16.00) is brighter (90% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Duchess is a light-medium, yellowed peach base with a warm pink shift paired with a frosted finish. It had good color payoff with a soft, smooth, lightly dense texture that applied well and was easy to blend out. It wore well for eight hours. Makeup Geek Mai Tai (P, $6.00) is less shimmery, darker (95% similar). MAC Motif (P, $16.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). Urban Decay Fireball (P, $19.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar).

Bandersnatch is a subdued, dark blue with cool undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation paired with a very lightly dusty texture, but it wasn’t as hard to work with as some of the other colorful matte shades were. It lasted for eight hours on me. Smashbox Azure (LE, ) is darker (90% similar). Inglot #336 (P, $6.00) is cooler (90% similar). LORAC Navy (P, $19.00) is darker (90% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Dream On is a sheer, medium mauve purple with warm undertones and a glittery finish. It had sheer coverage and resulted in a ton of fall out within the first few hours of wear, while the color itself showed signs of creasing after six hours. I would try patting this over another eyeshadow or else using a glitter adhesive to make it manageable/usable in practice. Buxom Patent Leather (P, $12.00) is darker (90% similar). Too Faced The Strip (LE, $16.00) is less shimmery, lighter (90% similar). MAC Metalmauve (LE, $16.00) is less shimmery, darker (85% similar). Urban Decay Bordello (P, $19.00) is warmer (85% similar).

Ardency Inn Disco (P, $21.00) is less shimmery, darker (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Dormouse is a medium-dark brown with warm, reddish-orange undertones and a mostly matte finish. It had semi-opaque color payoff, which was buildable in practice, paired with a really silky, smooth, and blendable texture. Though the payoff was underwhelming, I didn’t notice it as much when I started applying it on the eye. The color started to fade after eight hours of wear. Viseart Warm Mattes #7 (P, ) is lighter, cooler (95% similar). Makeup Geek Sora (LE, $6.00) is darker (95% similar). Anastasia Bengal (P, $12.00) is darker (95% similar).

Metamorphosis is a medium, periwinkle blue with cool undertones and a satin finish. The shimmer, again, is hard to notice on the lid, and it seemed to help it blend out a bit better and appear less chalk-like on than it would have if it was a pure matte finish. The texture was thin, dusty, and prone to sheering out. It didn’t build-up well, and I could only get semi-opaque coverage out of it if I used a tacky, white base–regular primer didn’t solve all of its issues. Hello Kitty Dear Daniel (LE, ) is darker (95% similar). Buxom Luxe Life (P, $12.00) is darker (95% similar). Colour Pop Piece of Cake (DC, $5.00) is darker, cooler (85% similar).

Cake is a medium-dark, fuchsia pink with cool undertones and a pearly sheen. It had good color payoff with a soft, smooth, and blendable texture that applied well to bare skin. This shade wore well for eight hours. Urban Decay Noise (LE, $19.00) is warmer (95% similar). Too Faced I Love TF (LE, $16.00) is more shimmery, lighter (95% similar).

Chessboard is a muted, medium-dark brown with warm, yellow undertones and a matte finish. It had mostly opaque pigmentation, and the consistency was soft, finely-milled, and blendable on bare skin. The color lasted well for eight hours. MAC Clove (LE, $16.00) is darker (95% similar). Laura Mercier Dune (LE, $23.00) is lighter (95% similar).

See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Royal Flush is a bright, white-peach with subtle, warm undertones and a metallic sheen. It had semi-opaque coverage, which was better applied with a damp brush than alone, as it tended to “thicken” and raise the texture of the lid if I attempted to build up the color. This shade lasted for eight hours before creasing. MAC Smoky Black Friday #1 (LE, ) is more shimmery (95% similar). Kat Von D Skulls (LE, ) is more shimmery (90% similar). Too Faced #selfie (LE, $16.00) is darker (90% similar). MAC Shroom (P, $16.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). Urban Decay Polyester Bride (P, $19.00) is more shimmery (90% similar).

Mirror is a medium-dark taupe with strong, gray tones and a slightly warmer, browner base paired with a pearly sheen.

The Details

Alice Through the Looking Glass Eyeshadow Palette, $60.00 (Limited Edition)

We can definitely relate to the Cheshire Cat’s proclamation, “We’re all mad here.” Urban Decay introduces the Alice Through the Looking Glass Eyeshadow Palette. Inspired by the new fantasy-adventure film release of Disney’s Alice Through the Looking Glass, in theaters May 27th, 2016, this limited-edition, pop-up palette is a trippy tribute to our favorite characters from the film. Using this visually stunning film as our inspiration, we painstakingly created the perfect mix of 20 ALL-NEW shades, then arranged them all in columns by character and put them in an intricately designed, collectible palette. Match up the columns to steal their looks or mix up these shades to create countless others. From softer shades inspired by Alice’s look in the film to bold, bright shades like those seen on the Mad Hatter, it’s all here.

The Best Urban Decay Eyeshadows + Overview

Urban Decay Eyeshadows
Urban Decay Eyeshadows

Urban Decay Eyeshadow ($19.00 for 0.05 oz.) is an extensive range of powder eyeshadows with a variety of finishes from matte to metallic and everything in-between. In general, I would describe the formula has moderately dense, mostly smooth, lightly buttery, and pigmented. Their matte eyeshadows tend to be a little dusty or powdery, but they are usually easy to blend and build-up on the lid (if they aren’t super pigmented).

I believe I have reviewed and rated the majority of the existing range, though there are probably a still a few I haven’t come across. This list will contain some shades found in permanent palettes (unfortunately, at this time, we don’t have anything in the system that distinguishes something available only in a permanent palette vs. permanent single). I hope it helps! (You can see the full list of shades sorted from best to worst here.)

I’d love to hear about your must-have eyeshadows from Urban Decay, and if you’ve tried any, I’d love it if you could take a moment to leave a quick rating or write a review!
