Urban Decay Alice in Wonderland Palette – UK’s First Look

Posted by Lipglossiping On January - 24 - 2010

This is Part 1 of a 3 Part UD Alice Extravaganza!  Click here for Part 2 and Part 3!

After my not so subtle hint-dropping yesterday, I’m sure that most of you have figured out that I took delivery of Urban Decay’s heavily anticipated Alice in Wonderland Palette (yay!).

I’m feeling priviledged to have been chosen to ‘unveil’ this to you wonderful UK beauty addicts as only one sample box was released to the UK blogging community.  Forgive me just a teeny bit of smugness, but if it gets too much, feel free to slap me.  I’d do the same to you.

Anyway… I’m going to break the ‘unveiling’ into 3 posts… I’m not falsely modest and know that photos are what I do best.  So you can expect each post to be picture heavy (which I am hoping, is a good thing).  This first post will focus on that wonderful pop-up scene.  The artistry that’s gone into the palette is breathtaking and a large part of the overall appeal for many of us.

So, without further ado (or let’s be frank… rambling)… I bring you, Urban Decay’s Alice in Wonderland Book of Shadows.

Open the palette to reveal a pop-up scene of Alice in the mushroom forest. Her “drink me” bottle discarded, she staggers past towering mushrooms, only to cross paths with a very peculiar, hookah-smoking caterpillar. A large mirror rests behind the scene – you feel as if you are transported into the film itself.

The Alice in Wonderland palette is due to be released in the UK on the 22nd February online with a store-wide release set for the 28th February.  It will be a Debenhams exclusive.

    They have chosen the best blogger I know to do this. I am over the moon! Your photos are just insane and hands on heart no one can do justice to the product as you. Such a lovely post. How bloody annoying the palette is released on a Monday!!! what are the chances anyway that the debenhams in preston would have this palette in store. They will probably choose just a few selected stores, that information I would kill to have in advance xx

    I’m totally jealous! The palette looks gorgeous. Thanks for the amazing close up pictures.
    I think I’m giving up trying to get my hands on this palette. firstly, I’m not even in a country that has Urban Decay and the urge to get it is making me restless. Especially when I missed the last one from the website by 5 minutes because I was creating a new “US” pay pal account to buy it… *sighs*

  31. Hello June, I’m afraid as far as I can tell, that’s it. It was last seen back in stock around the 24th Feb for a few more days, but I think you’d be very hard pushed to find one now apart from on eBay where they’re reaching silly money.

    I don’t know if you’re interested, but another piece of Limited Edition AiW beauty memorabilia that is still currently available (although not quite as collectable imo) are these limited edition sets from Japanese cosmetics company Paul & Joe:

    http://www.asos.com/Women/Features/Alice-In-Wonderland/Alice-In-Wonderland/Cat/pgecategory.aspx?cid=10218&sh=0&pge=0&pgesize=-1&sort=-1#state=Rf-100%3DColour%2BCollections&parentID=Rf-100&pge=0&pgeSize=-1&sort=-1

    They are exclusive to ASOS in the UK.
