Urban Decay Oz the Great and Powerful Glinda Swatches


Yesterday was Theodora, today is Glinda! In my opinion, this palette is more unique between the two. The Theodora palette has pretty classic colors and neutrals, while Glinda’s palette has the most ‘interesting’ shade: Aura.


Isn’t the tin beautiful? These are also reusable when the makeup runs out, or you can simply refill it with more UD shadows.



Top row: Tornado, Aura, Magic. Middle: 24/7 Glide On Pencil in Rockstar. Bottom row: Illusion, Oz, and South.

Aura has a light blue side and a light pink side. Each color is pretty on its own, but mixed together it has so much dimension (and of course I didn’t think of mixing them while swatching…). South is an amazing taupe shade. Both shades in Oz are glittery, but not messy like UD Midnight Cowboy.




Left to right: Glinda lip color, Rockstar eyeliner, Tornado, Aura (each shade swatched individually), Magic, Illusion, Oz (each shade swatched individually), South. Indoors, natural light. These swatches aren’t really giving these shades justice. If you have to see one palette in person, make it this one!


Swatches in sunlight. You can see more of how pretty Aura is here, but the Glinda lip color is looking way more orange in photos than it does in person. It is a true pink, not orange.

I mentioned this in the Theodora swatches post, but the value of these palettes is excellent. Urban Decay single eyeshadows typically cost $18 each, and here you are getting six shadows, the lip pencil, and the eyeliner for $49. I am not a makeup collector, as I like to use my makeup, but I am an Oz collector of sorts. If it’s something useful, even better! Because of that, I really feel like these palettes are worth every penny, as the shadows are pigmented, smooth, and everything you would expect from UD.
