Urban Decay x Alice in Wonderland

IMG_8316

I was so excited when I got to try out the entire Alice in Wonderland collection from Urban Decay. As many of you know, I’m a beauty and makeup junkie, so I’m totally loving the idea of featuring more of that on the blog (tied in with geekiness, of course)! As long as I can remember, I’ve always lusted over Urban Decay products because they aren’t afraid to be bold and brash. Since I’ve always loved dressing up (whether I knew it was cosplaying at the time or not), their brighter shades always drew me in when trying to make an impact with my costumes. Plus, they are big fans of glitter. And so am I. SO AM I.

This collection, which consists one gorgeous eyeshadow palette and 6 beautiful lipsticks, is limited edition. That means, you better run to your local Sephora, Ulta or online retailer to snag one because the last time I checked at my local Sephora, there were zero of these babies in stock. And it’s easy to see why. The packaging is perfection, with some of my favorite Alice quotes. For an outsider and “weirdo” like myself, I always related with the story’s take on the perception of “being strange.”

Nerdy Must Haves

1. X Files Pin; In a world that is being overrun by enamel pins, it’s nice to see that fandoms are still being represented in popular trends. One of my favorite pin makers, Sweet & Lovely, kills it with this monochrome X-Files one. I personally love that you can put this on your lapel, denim jacket or as flair to your favorite bag, and it is appropriate for so many occasions. Hell, put it on your dress at the next wedding you attend – you simply can’t go wrong with a little paranormal love.

2. Harry Potter Kids Dress; In my constant hunt for all things baby geek, I noticed that one of my favorites, Linda of 1138 Clothing, now offers a Harry Potter-inspired toddler dress! This is also made in big girl sizes, so this means that we can potentially have a little “Mommy and Me” action in the future. The design is so absolutely adorable, complete with a peter pan collar (I’m such a sucker for those), oversized glasses logo and a flared house skirt. You may see me wearing one of these very, very soon. ;)

3. Bookish Dress; Can you tell I’ve been on a girly kick lately? I am absolutely loving this sweet little dress from Jesiiii. She usually is a purveyor of the most kitschy and cute designs (sometimes on wood block, sometimes on pins), but she just released this number for preorder. At $60, it’s not a bad deal for such a unique and custom piece. If Belle is your inner Disney princess, you gotta snag this bookish dress!

4. Covergirl Katy Kat Matte Lipsticks; I found out about Katy Perry’s latest collaboration with Covergirl through YouTube. I saw Tasha Leelyn swatching the entire line, and now I’m super intrigued! Although I haven’t tried any of them out, I decided to add them to this list because they looked so good while swatched. I like that they have some bold colors, which is not the norm for drugstore makeup, and they are a demi-matte, which shouldn’t dry out your lips too bad. The packaging is also so killer – I love the big bold typography on white. As I’m writing this post, I’m already thinking about picking up a few at my Target run later. If I do, I’ll make sure to swatch them for you guys!
