Throwback Thursday :Urban Decay’s Oz the Great and Powerful Palettes

I’m off to see the wizard, the wonderful wizard of Urban Decay! I love all things Wizard of Oz. Thus, I’ve always loved the movie, I’m obsessed with Wicked the musical and now the world has granted us all the pleasure of seeing another part of the story in Disney’s upcoming film Oz The Great and Powerful (set to release Mar.8/13). Based on L. Frank Baum’s 1900 novel The Wonderful Wizard of Ozthe film precedes the novel and 1939 movie The Wizard of Oz. As if this movie, packed with some of the biggest stars like Michelle Williams, James Franco and Mila Kunis, wasn’t enough, the beauty world is taking this movie and running with it by creating must-have products that us die-hard fans will run out and purchase, stat!

Featuring eight new, never before seen exclusive shadows, Urban Decay’s Oz the Great and Powerful Palettes let you choose between good witch and bad witch by picking a palette designed for Glinda or a palette based on Theodora. Confused why there is only six spots in the palette but eight shadows? Each palette features two “duo-shades.”

Glinda’s palette features soft, ethereal shadow tones, a purple waterproof eyeshadow pencil and a pink-nude lip gloss pencil. The epitome of all things feminine, Glinda’s palette will magically highlight your peepers with shades like “Tornado,” a vibrant deep purple shimmer or “Magic,” a pinkish purple with a golden shimmer.

In the mood for a darker, edgier look like Theodora? The Theodora palette features deep earthy tones, that if you ask me are shades reminiscent of what one might see in Emerald City. With black eyeliner, a red lip-gloss pencil and “duo-shades” like “Spell,” a black satin with green and gold shimmer/gold metallic with tonal glitter and “Jealous,” a pale green pearl/dark green pearl, you can embrace your inner bad witch—minus the inflicting evil part.

Both limited edition palettes will be released tomorrow, January.25/13, and will be available at Sephora, sephora.com and urbandecay.com.

Which palette do you like best? In other words, are you feeling a little good, or a little evil?
