I wanted to wait until I actually saw the movie,so that I could get a better perspective of the elements included in the set and I am really glad that I did.
For those of you that dont know, all of the familiar characters are there,and Alice meets up with her dear friend "Hatter" for another courageous adventure.This time though, the sequel was actually better than the first,and had more heart. It was more about love,family and best friends forever. Oh, and forgiveness.. It was a feel good movie and I walked out of the theater with a smile on my face.
The shades in the Urban Decay palette arent pieces of a mirror at all, they are from Alice's tunic that she wore in the film. The lipstick shades are named after the "stars" and of course the beautiful butterfly that appears when you open the box is reminiscent of Absolem,who was a caterpillar in the first film..(get the "time" theme?)and yes, time changes us all.

The lipstick shades are also creative and whimsical. My favorite being Alice,a soft sheer apricot shade. There's Mad Hatter,Time,Mirana,and Iracebeth.
Urban Decay does a wonderful job on creating shades for fair skinned people. I was not able to purchase all of the shades as they were sold out pretty quickly, but I did get to swatch both Alice and Time. ($18.00 at ULTA)
Until next time~
