Better Late than Never : Urban Decay Alice in Wonderland Eyeshadow Palette

Now, that Urban Decay already released the Naked palette and the NYC Palette and another 4 more palette that isn't really well known to many, I've decided to re-feature my treasured Urban Decay Alice in Wonderland Palette of mine.

Why now? because I was lazy posting about it, that's why...I've had this since last year as a graduation gift to myself. Yes! I've already bought a luxury makeup item in my stash since last year...very surprising to me since I'm not the type of person to burn my money on luxury items of any kind...

...but, I won't lie...I'm planning on purchasing a NARS blush in the near future...hehehehe!

Urban Decay Alice in Wonderland Eyeshadow Palette

I bought it online for P4500...I just forgot if this is free shipping or if I have to add shipping fee for this. Currently, I don't know if the price is still the same because I remember that online prices go up or go down depending on the availability of the product. Since this is limited edition, there's a big chance that prices are jacked up on this depending on the online seller you're ordering from.

Piece of advise:
If you know someone (a relative, close friend, etc.) who lives in the states that is DEPENDABLE, you could ask them to buy this for you and just pay them in return. It's way more cheaper that way.

of course, this is the very famous paper play thingy on top of the palette with a big mirror.

w/ flash:

- the eyeshadows are very pigmented. Just one light swipe is all you need!
- last a long time on me even without an eye primer. I don't really use an eye primer.
- stays true to the color from the palette when you applied it on your eyelids. It does not oxidize (I have acidic type of skin) to another shade by the end of the day.
- the texture of the eyshadows are AMAZING!
-Everything from the details of the packaging down to the actual product is high quality and well-made.
- I tried the eye primer and it's true that my eyeshadows doesn't crease by the end of the day.
- the eyeliners doesn't budge even on a very hot and humid day. Even if it's not that hot, I'm a very sweaty person, I easily sweat like a pig, but this eyeliner is a real trooper when it comes to being sweat resistant.

- not readily available here in the Philippines.
- very expensive.
- some of the eyeshadows (like the "midnight tea party") have chunky glitter on it which is prone to fall outs. I don't like glitters of any kind. 

for a better view of the eyeshadows (you can still click on the images to enlarge)

the eyeliners (black-"zero" and teal-"flipside") are at the bottom.

My favorite out of all the eyeshadows here is
it looks like a duo chrome eyeshadow of peachy gold.

Would I be crazy enough to buy another palette from Urban Decay?
Well, I'm already crazy in the first place...hahaha! yes! I will buy another palette that will suit my fancy in the future!
