On Monday I had the chance to attend an early screening of Alice Through The Looking Glass, and its safe to say although I was excited to go my expectations were very very low. The first film was kind of a dud for me, but I always attributed this to the fact that I loved the cartoon and the comparison was just trying too hard in my mind.
Long story short, I loved this one! And I think its because I had little to no expectations going in.
The “Time” character (Sacha Baron Cohen) was so well done, and I really enjoyed seeing Alice as a strong female character fighting for her independence. The scenes were bold enough, bright enough, but not forced like they were in the first one. My only word of caution, is to not see it in 3D.
Overall, worth seeing! It comes into theaters today.
Disney was kind enough to send the palette over along with the O.P.I nail polish collection, so to celebrate the films release I will be sharing my thoughts and giving some of these goodies away!
The palette is so gorgeous and has a ton of hidden features and nods to the film. One of my favorites is the quote along the drawer and the purely decorative butterfly door. There is a ton of brown, tan, and grey within the shadows which made me so excited because the green, purple, and pink colors are just a little less practical.
My favorite colors are:
My initial thoughts were that this was something to use on special occasions, but I have been integrating the colors into my usual makeup routine and I now think that its a perfect investment piece in terms of everyday makeup. The fact that its also Disney themed, just a bonus in my book!
My favorite thing is 100% the crease brush they include with the shadows. I have a hard time finding a great crease brush and the one they provide is one notch above the usual sponge applicators you normally receive with these things. Such a practical and useful inclusion!
Overall, 9/10 would recommend! I will be giving away some stuff on Snapchat, Instagram, and Twitter so follow along to win some “Through The Looking Glass” makeup and other goodies. Leave a comment below for an extra entry.
