One of two gorgeous limited-edition palettes inspired by the Disney movie “Oz the Great and Powerful.” Inspired by the Disney film’s theme of good witch vs. bad witch (and the good witch/bad witch dichotomy in all of us), Urban Decay created two collectible palettes loaded with beautiful, never-before-seen shades. Recreate Theodora’s captivating, edgy look with eight all new and exclusive eye shadows in six pans (this set includes two duo-shades that are split in half, with a different color on each side of the pan). Every shade features Urban Decay’s Pigment Infusion System™, the proprietary blend of ingredients that gives each shade its velvety texture, rich color, serious staying power, and blendability.
Urban Decay has created two (2) limited edition palettes inspired by Disney’s Oz The Great And Powerful movie.

This palette comes in a light-weight, tin palette that flips open and contains a full-sized mirror. Inside, you’ll find six (6) removable eye shadow pans and an eye liner pencil. The lip product comes inside the box, but does not fit inside the actual palette.
Super-Saturated High Gloss Color in Theodora is an intensely-pigmented red lip product. It has the shiny finish close to a lipgloss but doesn’t have the same stickiness and glides over the lips more like a creamy lipstick. The product won’t dry out your lips and applies opaquely.
The 24/7 Glide on Eye Pencil in Zero is a great, go-to black eye pencil. The formula is creamy, making it glide onto the skin and waterline without skipping or tugging. The black shade is almost opaque and will last all day without smudging or fading on the lash-line and for a good 3-4 hours on the waterline.
The eye shadows, overall, are very good quality. All of the single-shade pans have a smooth formula that applies evenly and with good pigmentation. The duo-shade pans are not as impressive. In particular, the black shade in Spell is not as buttery or smooth as the other colors in this palette. The gold shade in Spell is also not as smooth as the other shades.
But other than those minor exceptions, this is a solid palette for creating an eye and lip look. I wish, though, that there were more matte shades in Theodora to balance out the rest of the shimmery and frosty shades. Beware is the only matte color offered in this palette.
Ease of Use: 9.5/10
The Super-Saturated High Gloss Color glides over the lips without skipping and its pencil form allows you to apply the super-opaque color in a fairly crisp line.
The 24/7 Glide on Eye Pencil also applies to the skin without extra pressure or skipping.
The eye shadows, with the exception of the shades in Spell, apply to the skin evenly and smoothly and don’t require extra layering to bring out each color’s pigmentation.
For $49.00 you get a total of 0.3 ounces of eye shadow, 0.03 ounces of eye pencil, and 0.1 ounces of lip product. Purchased in single form, Urban Decay’s eye shadows will cost you $18.00 each for 0.05 ounces of product. Even if you ignore the fact that you get both an eye pencil and lip product with the Theodora Palette, you’re getting more product per dollar spent with the six (6) eye shadow pans offered in this palette.
