Hello, dear readers! I have something REALLY exciting to show you today, and that’s swatches of the Urban Decay Theodora palette! If you don’t know already, I am a HUGE Wizard of Oz fanatic. I don’t even think words can describe how much I love all things Oz. People who know me or have met me always say they think of me when they see anything Judy Garland or Oz related. I did not know these palettes were coming out, and definitely would have put them on my Project Pan exclusion list (more on that in a different post…I’m doing really well!). It’s just my thing. Enough rambling…onto the palette!
The shadows are housed in a tin that is just like the buildable Urban Decay palettes. It’s very sturdy and has a large mirror inside of it, and it includes six shadows, plus a 24/7 Glide on Eye Pencil in Zero and a Super Saturated High Gloss lip color pencil in Theodora. This palette is $49, but with all that you’re getting, it’s a great deal. UD shadows typically cost $18 a piece, making the retail price of the shadows $108.
The palette also comes with a “get the look” card featuring Mila Kunis as Theodora.
Top row: Broken, Beware, Bewitch. Middle: 24/7 pencil in Zero. Bottom: West, Spell, and Jealous. As you can see, Spell and Jealous include two colors that can be used alone, or swirled together.
Left to right: Theodora lip color, Zero eyeliner, Broken, Beware, Bewitch, West, Spell (each shade swatched individually), Jealous (each shade swatched individually). These swatches were taken in natural sunlight.

I was literally jumping up and down with excitement about these Oz palettes this morning. The shadows are very soft and swatched easily; I’m sure there will be some FOTD looks created with these in the future. 😉 I think Urban Decay did a great job with these colors and keeping with the Oz theme, especially thinking about how the makeup is done in the original movie when it comes to Emerald City; everything is beautifully tied together. If any other Oz buffs remember the makeup on the woman holding the Siamese cat in Emerald City, that is what these shades remind me of as a whole.
What do you think? Did you pick up these palettes? Stay tuned for Glinda!
