Urban Decay Theodora Palette: Swatches and Review

Here's my swatches and review for the Theodora Palette inspired by the movie, Oz The Great and Powerful coming out in March 2013. Theodora is the good witch of the west in the movie, and she is played by Mila Kunis. She has an older, and extremely protective sister named Evanora who is played by Rachel Weisz. In the Wizard of Oz, the witch of the west is wicked, so this is the story before they became wicked. 

 Unlike the Glinda palette which is all bright and whimsical, Theodora is has a dark, sultry look to it. Now this palette is definitely my favorite between the two because I'm a neutral color, sultry look kinda gal lol. Now onto the palette itself with swatches of each color.

Again you get 6 full-sized shadows and 2 are duos, along with a travel-sized eyeliner pencil, and a full-sized Super Saturated Lip Color.

Broken: A pale cream satin finish eyeshadow. This would make a great inner tear duct color for that pop of brightness to open up the eyes.

Beware: A warm brown matte eyeshadow. This would be a great to use in the crease as a transitional color or just to give some nice definition to it. 

Bewitch: A dark charcoal brown satin finish eyeshadow. Another great crease color and a great way to darken up the outer V for some dimension. 

West: A deep metallic red brown eyeshadow. Another great crease color or a great lid color and blend out with Beware. 

Spell: First shades is a black satin finish with green and gold shimmer. Second shade is a gold metallic shade with tonal glitter. Now the gold in this palette is definitely better than the gold in the Glendora palette. 

Jealous: First shade is a dark green with a pearl finish. Second shade is a light green with a pearl finish. These could both be great lid colors, and crease colors or pop these on the lower lash line with a neutral lid for a nice pop of color. 

Now onto the eyeliner and lip color. Everyone who knows their UD would know about Zero. It is a black eyeliner pencil that is pretty creamy but Perversion is definitely 100x better! Now the lip color is in Theodora which is a bright red cream color. 

Like I said this one is my favorite out of the two, only complaints are the inability for the mirror to stand on its own and the fact that it comes with Zero as the eyeliner. I think they could have thrown in a whole different color or even a travel-sized Perversion would've been better. Overall I love this palette, and the fact that all the shades in both palettes are completely new! This also retails for $49 at www.sephora.com, www.ulta.com, and of course www.urbandecay.com
