Mad Hatter: Have I gone mad?
[Alice checks Hatter’s temperature]
Alice: I’m afraid so. You’re entirely bonkers. But I’ll tell you a secret. All the best people are.
Hellooooo! Last night I was able to pick up the Urban Decay Alice Through The Looking Glass Collection lipstick in “Mad Hatter.” I found the Alice Lipsticks at Ulta for $18.00 USD (the eyeshadow palette is here for $60.00 USD). These products have launched early at Ulta; however, if you are a rewards member at Urban Decay or have Flash Shipping at Sephora, from what I understand, they both will be getting the collection fairly soon.
I really love the limited edition packaging. Even the box for the lipsticks is psychedelic, man!
The tube is plastic and feels a bit more lightweight than the regular Revolution Lipstick tubes. That’s ok, because LOOK HOW COOL this packaging is. O_O
I know this is an Alice Through the Looking Glass collection for the upcoming movie, but who else is getting a Price’s Paisley Park video vibe besides me?
Description From the Ulta Site:
Inspired by the fantasy-adventure film release of Disney’s Alice Through the Looking Glass, Urban Decay’s limited-edition shades of Lipstick pay tribute to some of the main characters from the film: Alice, Mad Hatter, Mirana (the White Queen), Iracebeth (the Red Queen) and Time, a peculiar creature who is part human, part clock.
Pair the Lipsticks with the Alice Through the Looking Glass Eyeshadow Palette and you’ll have everything you need to recreate the looks from the film. From sheer nude with a pink shift and bright red matte to gunmetal-navy with silver shimmer, these shades range from classic to edgy. Regardless of the finish (sheer, shimmery or matte), each shade has a super-creamy feel and provides rich payout.
Each Lipstick case features a colorful, kaleidoscopic pattern inspired by the film. Urban Decay debossed the top of the cap and the Lipstick with the UD icon and screened “Urban Decay” on the inside of the case.
My Take On Mad Hatter Lipstick:
Mad Hatter metallic lipstick reminds me a bit of Makeup For Ever’s #15 Pearly Violet lipstick. However, I always found that lipstick to be quite dry and that it tugged on the lips and was uncomfortable to wear. Mad Hatter is a little more sheer; however, that means that it can be changed up with different lip liners and be a bit more versatile. It’s a sort of matte metallic, if that makes sense, and it’s more of a violet purple than a blue purple It’s not drying and does not tug at the lips, which I definitely appreciate as I have dry lips. It’s not particularly hydrating, either. The metallic finish is not the kind that shows every lip imperfection, like some frosts do. I do not feel any glitter particles when I press my lips together (this drives me crazy). It lasts for around 4 hours before I need a touch up and stays on very well when I’m drinking water/coffee.
I loooooooooooooooove this, guys! Check it!! (Worn here with NYX Purple Rain lip liner. Yes, Prince would approve.)
And for fun, here’s a closed eye shot of my eye look, done with Urban Decay Vice 4 palette (Beatdown and 1985 shadows with Grasshopper):
Will you be getting anything from the Alice Through The Looking Glass Collection?
