Urban Decay Oz Theodora palette

Next up: Theodora ($49, Darker, moodier artwork decorates the tin inspired by Mila Kunis’ soon-to-be-Wicked Witch of the West, and as such, the shades inside are darker and moodier as well. The eight shades include Broken (cream), Beware (warm brown), Bewitch (dark charcoal brown), West (metallic brown shimmer), Spell (one of the two duo-shades in black with green and gold shimmer and gold with tonal glitter), and Jealous (the second duo-shade in pale green and dark green—it’s the Wicked Witch of the West, so there’s got to be green somewhere!). The 24/7 Glide-On pencil here comes in black, and the Super-Saturated High Gloss Lip Color stick in Theodora is a bright, bold red.

As was the case with the Glinda how-to, the Theodora one is a little involved, but totally worth it in the end. It makes one heck of a smoky eye that’s dramatic without being overwhelming. If the Glinda look is perfect for day, the Theodora one is made for night, whether you’re hitting the dance floor or grabbing drinks at the trendiest spot in town. This look uses only four of the shadows—the browns and creams—so there’s plenty of room to play with the remaining four shades. I was fond of brushing the light green shade of Jealous across my lids, smoothing the dark green shade in the crease, and using the sparkly black Spell shade as eye liner. The bright red Theodora lip color stick plays up the drama, though happily, it’s the type of red that anyone can wear, no matter what their coloring is like.

As an added bonus, both palettes incorporate Urban Decay’s Build Your Own Palette format for total versatility. When you finish the original shades, just pop them out and pop your favorite Urban Decay shadows into the tin—so you can bring the magic of Oz to any and all of your fave looks.

The Glinda and Theodora palettes are available for $49 at,,,, and, as well as at Sephora, Ulta, and select Macy’s stores nationwide. Snap yours up while you can, and be sure to catch Oz the Great and Powerful in cinemas now!
