Urban Decay Alice in Wonderland Palette - Alice

I was an Alice in Wonderland fan before I was a makeup fan. 

It's true.

It even inspired my blog name, Tiffany in Makeupland, My Life in Makeupland. I consider it a land because my world is consumed with all things makeup and it is such an integral part of my life.

One day, some time back in 2012, I happened to be browsing ebay for Alice in Wonderland items and I stumbled upon the Urban Decay Alice in Wonderland Palette. 

I said hello and convinced myself it would be mine, even if it cost me $200. 

See at this time it was no longer available to purchase anywhere else since it was a limited edition item that came out around the release of the Alice in Wonderland movie with Johnny Depp.

Anyway, I bought it at the time as an avid Alice in Wonderland lover. 

When it arrived something strange happened, I would say it launched my makeup birth. I saw the colors of the shadows with all of the glitter and sparkle glory and I fell in love at first sight.

I knew a transformation had taken place and that great things were going to happen. That day I became obsessed with makeup and since then I have added almost 200 eyeshadow palettes to my collection.

What can I say? I have truly found something that I am passionate about and that makes me happy.

This is truly one of my favorite palettes, but ironically it has only been used twice. I love it so much that I don't want to ruin it. I know it sounds ridiculous. 

I decided to use it recently to create a neutral look with a pop of blue, that I call Alice.

To create this look I applied White Rabbit (white shimmer with silver glitter) to my brow bone and inner corner.

Next I applied Muchness (peach gold shimmer) as a transition shade in my crease.

Then I applied Chessur (beige shimmer with silver glitter) in the right half of my crease.

Next I applied Mad Hatter (brown matte with silver sparkle) to my outer v.

Lastly I patted Alice (vibrant blue shimmer) on my lid.

I lined under my eye with White Rabbit, Alice, and Mad Hatter.

I applied Maybelline Eyestudio Eyeliner in Blackest Black to my top lid, Too Faced Lashgasm mascara to my top lashes, L'Oreal's Lash Out Butterfly mascara on my bottom lashes, and Urban Decay 24/7 Velvet eyeliner in Black Velvet to my waterline.

Have you seen this palette?
