Urban Decay Alice Through The Looking Glass Lipsticks

We are taking another trip down the rabbit hold today and taking a closer look at the new Urban Decay Alice Through The Looking Glass Lipsticks. The five shades have all been created to compliment the stunning Alice Through The Looking Glass palette which was on the blog yesterday. As each column in the palette was inspired by a specific character, it was only natural that each look had a lipstick to match. From the sublime to the outlandish, each shade is exactly what you would expect from a collection that is full of mystery and magic. Come along into this magical world and see just what Alice in Wonderland means to Urban Decay.

All five lipsticks in the collection are dressed up in kaleidoscopic patterned cases, that compliment the Alice palette, with boxes to match. Each case has a debossed UD logo on the lid and they are standard lipstick cases in which the lid is pulled off to reveal the lipstick bullet inside. On each lipstick the UD logo is also present and each bullet is of a standard size. Of course the packaging has to be mentioned but it’s the colours of the lipsticks that are the most special thing about this collection. It’s quite rare to see such unconventional shades, especially when they out outweigh the more wearable shades. From the moment I saw the colours, I knew I had to rock these shades in my own way. Each lipstick, regardless of finish has a super creamy feel with great pigmentation.

Alice is a sheer nude with a pink shift. One first swatch, Alice didn’t really make much of an impact with my skin tone yet when I applied it to my lips, it left such a beautiful finish. In some lights, it looks iridescent blue but overall it’s a shimmery peachy pink balm. It would work well over another colour to add depth and dimension.

Mad Hatter is a bright purple shimmer and I loved this from the off. Deeply concentrated, it’s slightly difficult to apply evenly so a lip brush is better than applying from the bullet. It’s quite cool toned, which I found made my teeth look off white but it lasted quite a long time, and was mildly hydrating.

Mirana is a matte berry with a tonal shimmer. Another shade that was difficult to apply evenly, but I loved this one from the word go. I love a deep berry and this one works really well with my warm skin tone. The shimmer can be felt when you press your lips together but it’s not that noticeable on the lip.

Iracebeth is a bright red matte that errs on the pinky side and this is a colour that I would wear every day. It applies evenly, lasts for ages and stains the lips. I have nothing but good things to say about Iracebeth.

Time is the most outstanding shade from the collections as it’s a gunmetal navy with silver shimmer. It’s like denim in a lipstick and it has made me really want to wear blue lipstick. It’s quite emollient in texture and it creates lines when lips are pressed together and it does disappear quickly from the centre of the lips leaving a ring of blue, but I love it.

The whole Urban Decay Alice Through The Looking Glass collection, to me, is simply wonderful. It’s not for the faint of heart but it really makes you jump out of your comfort zone and express yourself with colours that you may never have normally tried. As with the palette, the lipsticks are limited edition and when they are gone, they’re gone. Keep checking back with Urban Decay for a re-stock of these great shades or check at your local Urban Decay counter. Lipsticks are priced at £16 each.

    I read your previous post on the shadows, and it’s seriously given me the hearteyes for the palette. The lipsticks are really outstanding, and even though I can’t see myself wearing most of them, I think I would love the Mirana one. It’s a lovely shade of berry that would be perfect for Autumn and Winter. I would never wear Time, but man, that is such a great shade. Definitely denim in a tube!

  • A very interesting collection of shades. I’ve noticed these colors are trending. This collection reminds me of the new Bite Beauty lipsticks…
