Makeup Inspired by “Alice in Wonderland”

urbandecayaliceinwonderland.jpg

What a dream come true! When Disney called to ask if Urban Decay would design a product for the launch of Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland, they were like, “Um…. Yes!” The result is this truly amazing (and seriously collectible) Book of Shadows.

Open the palette to reveal a pop-up scene of Alice in the mushroom forest. Her “drink me” bottle discarded, she staggers past towering mushrooms, only to cross paths with a very peculiar, hookah-smoking caterpillar. A large mirror rests behind the scene – you feel as if you are transported into the film itself.

Hidden inside a secret drawer are 16 best-selling Eyeshadows, given topsy-turvy names like White Rabbit, Jabberwocky and Oraculum. Alongside them lie travel sizes of Eyeshadow Primer Potion and two 24/7 Eye Pencils. From smoky neutral eyes to flashes of hallucinogenic green and purple, the looks you can create are as endless as the rabbit hole itself. Anyone who loves Urban Decay, Tim Burton, Disney, or Alice in Wonderland absolutely MUST have this palette. Even the Mad Hatter would say this Book of Shadows delivers it all.

Fill Weight: Eyeshadows: 16 x 0.8 g e 16 x 0.03 US oz; Eyeshadow Primer Potion: 3.7ml e 0.13 US fl oz; 24/7 Eye Pencils: 2 x 0.8g e 2 x 0.03 US oz

Smashbox’s Eye Shadow Trios in Twilight and Panorama ($28 at www.smashbox.com) are perfect. Twilight consists of shimmering white, silver and black; Panorama has pearl, purple taupe, and eggplant shades. Whether you want dramatic or subtle, you’re set.

I am obsessed with Smashbox’s eye trios! I  was just sent some color samples of the Smashbox eyeshadow trios and I have been using them daily I think my other eyeshadows are getting jealous! My favorite has to be Microfilm I’m actually excited to get up each day and try a new look. The coordinated shades make experimenting a breeze I started this week using the matte brown as my base color with a green accent and am now using the gold and metallic green together with a hint of the brown. Every combo I try looks great and really opens my eyes. On top of truly vibrant colors the colors stay true all day!

Smashbox also helps you grab this look with its Waterproof Shadow Liner Duo in Smolder and Slate ($25). The cream shadow glides on smoothly and evenly, giving you the power to create soft, smoky definition in one quick step. The waterproof, crease-proof formula is the modern way to emphasize your eyes!

Yeah for Smashbox! I have always loved their gel liner and have found another eyeliner to covet with Smashbox Waterproof  Shadow Liner Duo.  When the sample showed up on my door I jumped at the chance to try it.  The cream is so smooth and glides on so easy it makes application a snap the color duo is all you need for a sexy smoky eye. If you have days that seem to never end this is the eyeliner for you! This stuff does not move, your eyes will look as great at bedtime as they did when you left the house in the morning.

Instant Definition Eye Shadow Palettes from Sally Hansen Natural Beauty Inspired by Carmindy ($7.95 at drugstores nationwide) also let you to play up your eyes. Whether it’s the Storm Eye Palette, Ocean Eye Palette, or the Mountain Eye Palette, you can get that smoky eye in no time.

Quick tip from Carmindy: Simply apply the highlight shade under the brow and on the inner corners of the eyes. Sweep on the smoldering lid shade across the lid from the lash line to the crease and smudge a bit under the lower lash line. Finish off by applying the contour shade across the crease.

I have been really impressed with the new Sally Hansen Natural Beauty inspired by Carmindy. I have found some drugstore lines either irritate my skin or having no staying power. All of the Sally Hansen by Carmindy items I have had the luck of sampling have stood out from the rest. With great colors that stay vibrant all day and absolutely no eye irritation. The Sally Hansen eye trios are an affordable eyeshadow product that makes great looking eyes affordable at every price point.
