Urban Decay’s Alice Through The Looking Glass Event

Recently myself and a friend were invited to attend Urban Decay’s Alice Through The Looking Glass tea party, and makeup master class, so I thought I’d bring you guys along, and let you know how it went!

When we arrived, we saw that the usual Urban Decay counter was decorated aptly, in a tea party, Alice in Wonderland theme. There was fake moss, cake stands (with cakes of course, Urban Decay knows the ways to our hearts!) along with their limited edition makeup items displayed in cute tea cups and tree stumps. IMG_2334There was also a makeup tutorial that featured most of the products. The makeup artist talked us through a half ‘natural’ daytime look, and half ‘edgy’ night-time look.

The daytime look featured the ‘Alice‘ shades from the limited edition palette, with their new ‘Beached‘ bronzer, and the lipstick in the shade ‘Alice‘ from the limited edition lipsticks in tribute to the film.

The night-time look featured a mix of some of the ‘Iracebeth‘ and ‘Time‘ shades, to create a really deep and smoky eye, along with the lipstick in the shade ‘Time‘ on the lips.IMG_2324I personally really loved the formula of the lipsticks, like most Urban Decay lipsticks, they are creamy and feel lovely on the lips, and I was actually really tempted by the colour ‘Mirana‘, but I stopped myself from buying it because I realised that the reason I loved it so much was that it reminded me of MAC’s Ariana Grande Viva Glam lipstick, (it’s matte too!), which I already own.

The other lipsticks really are quite unique and pretty, ‘Alice‘ is a beautifully shimmery pale nude, ‘Mad Hatter‘ is a heavenly pigmented shimmery purple, ‘Time‘ is an unusual and metallic-looking blue, and ‘Iracebeth‘ is a pinky-red matte fused shade.

Unfortunately all of the lipsticks are now sold out, and I don’t know if they are going to be restocked or if that’s it because they are limited edition, but you can keep an eye on them on Urban Decay’s site.IMG_2328I knew as soon as I was invited to this event that I wanted the eyeshadow palette. There was no doubt in my mind that even before I had seen it in the flesh, that I wanted it. When we first got to see it though, I was sold, purely by the shades ‘Gone Mad’, ‘Paradox’ and ‘Dream On’. I’ve really been loving orange eyeshadow shades lately, as they really compliment my eyes and skin tone, and the rest of the palette is just so unique, and insanely pigmented.

I won’t go too into detail on the palette because I do have a separate post going up after this one, so be sure to look out for that one!


That’s it for Urban Decay’s Alice Through The Looking Glass Event, I really enjoyed the event, and was so happy to be invited. I loved the makeup tips that we were taught, and I can’t wait to attend more makeup and blogger events.

I hope you guys enjoyed this post! Let me know if you’ve got any of the lipsticks, or if like me, you couldn’t wait to get the palette!

Just add some fake spider webs to some existing decoration in the area, like I have here with the lanterns. Then add some Halloween-themed tea light candle holders, and a sign, maybe that says ‘Happy Halloween’ or something spooky.Guide To Halloween Decor Guide To Halloween Decor Guide To Halloween Decor Halloween Bunting | If you’ve got the room for it, I’d definitely recommend having Halloween-themed bunting up. This is because it brings the whole room together, and it can be one of the only pieces of decoration you have up, but it’s plenty to bring a Halloween vibe.

Eerie Balloon | I little trick I’ve picked up is, if you use double-sided tape and put it on the back of a balloon, you can stick it up anywhere, and it looks really creepy, as if it’s floating in mid air, on its own.Guide To Halloween Decor Pumpkins | If nothing else, you should at least have carved a pumpkin!Guide To Halloween Decor Fairy Lights | If you’re into super cute and reasonably girly things like I am, fairy lights are suitable for almost every holiday and event; trust me.
