Urban Decay Oz the Great & Powerful Palette

Recommended Posts

!I love the idea of them, but I'm not sure if I really need one... BUT I know I'm getting an Ulta gift card for my birthday on Sunday plus I have a friends and family 20% off postcard that starts on the 27th SO it is going to be really hard to resist!

Yeah I expected one of the pallets to have crazy vivid colors and the other one to just have pretty girly colors. I love urban decay but I think I may pass on this one...not what I expected.

I need to see swatches!  Some photos of the palettes look unremarkable, but others look super interesting and unlike anything I have.  The Glinda palette looks like a better original Feminine palette... springy and light.

I adore Urban Decay palettes. I have read a press releases on these from various beauty bloggers. Even though the colors are not as wild or interesting as I might like I am definitely going to get a close look at these and sad to say, I will probably be sucked in to purchasing both due to packaging and the fact that I love, love, love limited edition palettes for some reason. They know my weaknesses :)

Boy.. this kind of sucks. I wish they would have made an "Oz" palette similar to that of their Alice In Wonderland palette they put out a few years ago with an Emerald city pop up ect. and tons of rainbow "Oz inspired" eyeshadow colors. That would have been awesome and so much fun. Instead they give people this? it's alright, but I expect more presentation and imagination from a hip funky brand like Urban Decay.

i really like it.. considering that we get a REUSABLE beautiful PALETTE, POP OUT EYE SHADOWS (which you can switch it around if you have Urban Decay's newer eyeshadow packaging), an eyeliner, and a lip pencil.. the value is way beyond amazing! count me in to get both of these limited edition sets!!

This didn't pop to me at all. Where is the red ruby slippers and the bright colors from munchkinland? As someone who owns the Alice palette, this really lacks to me.

That's how I feel too. It's a great value and all, but if the colors aren't too appealing, there's no point in spending money on something that you probably won't use. I wish UD would have released bright colors for this collection.

I totally agree. I know the colors aren't super 'poppy,' but I'm still kind of in to them. If nothing else, they're nice neutral colors and you can always fill the palette up with other colors. 
Since they're based on the witches makeup in the film itself, I can kind of see why they're not the usual fun colors from UD. I do agree that they could have added another palette based on another facet of the movie with more 'fun' colors, but I don't think that this is the worst. 
That's just my opinion, though. To each their own :).

These palettes make no sense to me. They really should have gone more fun and vivid with the colors. I know it's supposed to be geared to the Witch's makeup, but I'm not even seeing that in this collection, and wasn't she a bit green and sickly looking? Who want's to look like that? lol. Not one of their best ideas. But you can't win them all.

I've never had any products from UD, and I REALLY wish I'd bought the Alice in Wonderland Book of Shadows a few years back, but I wasn't in the know until it was too late. Anyway, I am really excited about these palettes. I'll only be able to afford one, since they're $50 each, so I've decided to purchase Glinda when it comes out. I hope it lives up to all the hype I've heard about UD (mainly via the Naked Palettes).

I'm wondering if the palettes aren't more pop color filled because of the semi recently released vice palette which has a lot of pop colors. I purchased the Vice palette and I have to say I haven't used it all that much. The colors that are super bright and pigmented and some of them really have massive fallout which for me is a bummer as I have to apply foundation and all that before I do my eyes or I just feel confused.

Be careful!  I got into Urban Decay last year and I've been addicted ever since! :-)  You may want to wait for Temptalia's reviews and swatches so you can see which palette would suit you best.  That's what I'm doing, anyway.  I keep going back and forth!
