Urban Decay Alice in Wonderland

Urban Decay Alice in Wonderland.

So you know that I am a fan of Urban Decay, Love the vibrant colours, out there names but most of all the quality of the products. I have to say that I mostly only own their eye products and when you see something like their Book of Shadows, or Alice in Wonderland you will be immediately drawn to them.
Firstly the the design of the box is beautiful and interesting, the lid can be lifted to reveal a Alice in Wonderland scene with a mirror (quite disturbingly you can stick your face into Wonderland...have I been playing with it for too long???). Its really pretty, there is no real function to this part of the product, you wouldn't really use the mirror but it is very nice to look at.
When the drawer is pulled out there are 16 eyeshadows. The eyeshadows are really beautiful and range from neutral to vibrant. Usually with Urban Decay I dive straight into the vibrant colours as they are too hard to resist, but I have found that some of their neutrals are really beautiful and its easy to achieve a wearable everyday look with this set as well as crazy looks. Now beware there are some glittery little fellas in there. These are not new Urban Decay colours they are existing colours that have been renamed for the Alice set.
There are also two mini (but not tiny) 24/7 Glide on Pencils and a Mini Urban Decay Primer Potion. While I LOVE Urban Decays eyeshadows I ADORE their 24/7 Glide on Pencils. They are rich and creamy, they last all day but you can also smudge them out. My favourite new thing to do with them is to use them as a primer. I promise you, if you put eyeshadow on top of these it will not budge. The colours you get are Zero which is a pitch black colour and Flipside which is a rich turquoise. These are really smooth and easy to use on the waterline.
Why I love it:
The packaging is cute, it makes you reach for it and the fact that I love the shadows and they were well makes this an excellent set. To have all these colours in one set is brilliant, this is also a much more affordable way to collect a lot of colours. I am a fan of the Book of Shadows and from now on I will be buying these instead of individual shadows.
Why I don't love it:
Well its limited, so its probably gone out of the shops already, plus they didn't come up with new colours so I will have some duplicates.
If you can get your hands on this go for it, although any of the Book of Shadows are great value.
