Being a massive fan of the film Pulp Fiction, I was so excited to try out the Urban Decay Limited Edition Pulp Fiction Range which was released this summer to celebrate the 20th Anniversary of the film (can’t believe it has been 20 years). Never have I been more excited to review a collection. Its gorgeous & I love (almost) every product which is unusual for me because many ltd edition collections are often a little gimmicky or out there in terms of colours & after you buy them they’re put into your collection and then overlooked, but I can see this collection being reached for a lot!
It’s a 6 piece collection & the packaging is black & yellow in keeping with the movie poster (its so iconic). The attention to detail on the packaging is so on point and Urban Decay have added lots of fun touches that die hard Pulp Fiction fabs will appreciate. I know I won’t be able to throw it away!
The collection features a 5 Shadow Palette, Revolution Lipstick, 24/7 Glide on Lip Pencil, Nail Varnish and a Heavy Metal Glitter Liner. The idea is that you use the collection to create your own take on the iconic Miss Mia Wallace look, using the handy step by step card that you get in the eyeshadow palette.
The Pulp Fiction Palette* £17.50 comes in black & yellow packaging & has the famous Ezekiel passage on the top written in red. The packaging is cardboard but its very sturdy and it comes with a large mirror in the lid. This palette has 5 shadows & they’re a mixture of mattes & satin finishes. This palette features 3 new colours from Urban Decay
- Righteous – Light cream matte
- Tyranny – Warm brown matte
- Vengeance – Deep taupe brown matte
- Furious – Pearly white satin
- Anger – Black satin with a hint of sparkle
The shadows are pigmented & easy to blend they are all beautiful and colours that I would pick out of my collection to wear all the time. I think they’re also perfect colours for Autumn, I love wearing a warm brown smokey eye. The only shade in this palette that I didn’t like too much was Anger, I thought it was more of a grey than a black and it was a little chalky and harder to work with. You also get a double ended brush in the palette & I usually throw away the brushes you get free but I used this one & its great for taking the shadow under the eye & I even packed the colour on to the lid using it, it wasn’t great at blending but if you needed to you could make it work & I love that its red.
The Mrs Mia Wallace Revolution Lipstick* £15.00 This lipstick is utterly gorgeous & its my favourite piece from the whole Pulp Fiction Collection. It’s a deep cherry red shade with a beautiful glossy finish. This colour is so rich on the lips and it feels comfortable to wear. If you have tried any of the Urban Decay Revolution Lipsticks you will know how creamy and pigmented they are & the this one doesn’t disappoint.
This colour is such a good match to the lipstick Mrs Mia Wallace wears in the film and I felt a little bad ass wearing it. Its quite dark and not something I would normally wear but I fell in love with the colour & I know I will get so much wear from it. I do need a little practise applying it & I’m not that skilled in applying lip pencil as you can see in the photos below but you can get an idea of how bold & vibrant the colour is. Also it applies smoothly on your lips and it lasted a good 6 hours on me which I was so pleased with.
Mrs Mia Wallace 24/7 Glide on Lip Pencil* £13.50 – I only have one other lip pencil so they’re not something I tend to use but the Mrs Mia Wallace lipstick is very pigmented & I think in order to get a good finish & stop it bleeding throughout the day the lip pencil is a must & they make a good duo. The liner is quite creamy but easy to use & although I need more practise applying it I do love the colour and think it made a big difference to how long the lipstick lasted. Its a matte finish & I would describe it as a blood red.
Mrs Mia Wallace Nail Colour* £10.00 the packaging on the nail polish is cool, it has a skull on the lid & the colour is coordinated with the lipstick and is a gorgeous deep cherry red shade with a touch of shimmer. It wears really well on my nails & I had it on for 5 days before taking it off. The brush is nice and it applied the polish really evenly and despite it being a dark shade I managed to apply it with minimal mess. A gorgeous polish but I wouldn’t say a must have unless you’re a nail polish addict.
Gunmetal Heavy Metal Glitter Eyeliner* £14.00 – I’ve tried a few of these glitter liners over the years & I love the brush as it is so easy to use & you can achieve a thin precise line or build it up to create a more dramatic look. The glitter doesn’t transfer, once it has dried it stays in place until you remove it. This has silver and black glitter and looks great on, although I’m not too sure it is in keeping with the Pulp Fiction Mia Wallace look but I guess it could be a more modern take on an edgy look. I used my Urban Decay Ink For Eyes in this look.
Let me know if you have tried anything from this Pulp Fiction collection & if not the good news is it is still available from Debenhams although it is limited edition so be quick.
