Oz the Great and Powerful Theodora palette

The Wizard of Oz. Wicked. Oz the Great and Powerful. I love it all. (I’ve seen Wicked twice, and would see it again in a heartbeat.)

Needless to say, I’ve had my eye on the Theodora Urban Decay palette since it came out. I ordered it from Sephora last week, and it finally came in the mail today!

I also got a bunch of samples, including six perfumes. Sometimes it pays to sign up for a store’s reward program or search for coupons. (I did both.) Sephora’s Beauty Insider rewards program allows you to get points for every dollar spent and then cash in on sample sizes of high-end products. Pretty awesome.

The container is metal, much like Urban Decay's Naked 2 palette.

The palette comes with eight different eyeshadows—Broken, Bewitch, Beware, West, Spell (black/gold) and Jealous (green/light green)—black eyeliner and red lip liner. There’s also a tutorial card that you can follow, or fly by the seat of your pants and come up with your own look. (I did follow the tutorial, just because I didn’t want to have to take my makeup off again if I messed up.)

It is $49, but you could get so many different looks out of this one palette. And you would definitely be paying more for eight eyeshadows bought individually.

Urban Decay also has a Glinda palette—the colors are a light brighter and shimmery, much like the Good Fairy of the North herself. I’m more apt to wear neutrals than I am light colors, so that’s why I went with the Theodora.

And of course, I had to take off my eye makeup and redo it using the palette. What I have on is more of an everyday look, but you could definitely do a great smokey eye for a dramatic nighttime look too.
