Alice in Wonderland beauty products? Oh yes, indeed! The beloved children's book has come to life in two wonderful ways:
1. The new Disney release, starring Johnny Depp, Helena Bonham Carter, Anne Hathaway, and more from a talented cast, springs into theaters in 3D this friday, March 5th.
2. The other beautiful Alice In Wonderland concept......the makeup. Yes, it's true. Urban Decay and O.P.I. are two cosmetics companies, so far, that we know of, celebrating the wonderful story by Lewis Carroll, and of course, the nostalgic drawings by John Tenniel.
Take a peek at the beauty kits we found:
1. Urban Decay Alice in Wonderland Book of Shadows ($52, Ulta. This makeup kit is so enchanting to look at!
This is how Ulta describes this wonderland book of shadows:
Open the palette to reveal a pop-up scene of Alice in the mushroom forest. Her "drink me" bottle discarded, she staggers past towering mushrooms, only to cross paths with a very peculiar, hookah-smoking caterpillar. A large mirror rests behind the scene - you feel as if you are transported into the film itself. Hidden inside a secret drawer are 16 best-selling Eyeshadows, given topsy-turvy names like White Rabbit, Jabberwocky and Oraculum. Alongside them lie travel sizes of Eyeshadow Primer Potion and two 24/7 Eye Pencils. From smoky neutral eyes to flashes of hallucinogenic green and purple, the looks you can create are as endless as the rabbit hole itself.
And the customer reviews love these shadows. This wonderland makeup kit has been SOLD OUT for weeks at a time. At the moment, the kit is available online at Ulta.
2. O.P.I. Disney's Alice in Wonderland 2010 Collection Mini Nail Lacquer Pack ($9.20, Amazon.com). But hurry!!! Only 4 were left as of this writing.
Again, a lovely makeup tribute to the classic children's tale. This OPI Wonderland mini nail pack is adorable! And these polishes are so pretty:
Off with Her Red! - A glowering, empowering hot red
Absolutely Alice - An absolutely amazing blue glitter
Mad as a Hatter - A madly marvelous black-multi glitter
Thanks So Muchness! - For this "much-have" red shimmer
Fun colors and some glitter, too. The mini pack is great for traveling, too.
Alice in Wonderland is one of our absolutely favorite childhood books. It will be interesting to see how director Tim Burton re-creates this magical story. And Johnny Depp as the Mad Hatter? We can't wait!
