Think of the characters in your childhood stories. Who did you relate to the most? Or want to be like? Sure, there were moments where you'd have said Jem and the Holograms or She-Ra Princess of Power. But when pressed to think of someone more timeless, Alice in Wonderland always seems to come to the top of the list.
Alice is curious and brave, defiant but polite, and meets characters and has adventures far more amazing than most other childhood heroines. Old enough now to grasp the edgy side of Alice (the drug allusions, twisted logic and double entendres), I like her even more. She's sweet and pure, sure... but is also fearless and handles the surreal world in stride.
Makeup brand Goldie is uniquely edgy/sweet, with gorgeous shades and packaging decorated with an urban sort of scribble. Now Goldie is now celebrating both sides of Alice in a collection of cosmetics that are decorated with early Disney sketches of Alice and her friends "down the rabbit hole".
Check out the two beautiful face palettes, for example. Both include two shades for your eyes, lips and cheeks. The "Alice Silhouette
" version shown here features pinky shades and the "A Monogram
" version has warmer pink tones. The cases have sketches of Alice that spark the imagination, without being saccharine sweet.
The lip glosses
and tinted lip balms
are gorgeous, both in the variety of shades and the packaging. The caps are high-quality metal with a lacquered "A" monogram. The Cheshire Cat's smile on the balm makes me
smile when I pull it out of my bag.
The collection is available at Bath & Body Works
. Use them to get ready, for adventure is just around the corner.
