This is one collection I've been waiting for with much anticipation and as it's limited edition I didn't take a huge amount of time to mull over whether I needed it or not. Plus I only own one of the Urban Decay naked palettes so I kind of owed it to myself. Ahem. Anyway, this collection was brought out for the 20th anniversary of the release of cult classic Pulp Fiction, possibly one of the coolest films of all time with possibly one of the coolest female characters ever, Mrs Mia Wallace, the ever beautiful Uma Thurman.
I picked up the eyeshadow palette and the lipstick and as with all UD products, the quality is superb with these. The packaging is also pretty incredible.
The palette is furnished with the iconic Pulp Fiction font and a quote from Jules Winnfield. Excellent. Inside there's a large mirror, a double ended brush (which is actually pretty decent. No horror-inducing sponges here, that's for sure) and five eyeshadows, three of which are brand new. Designed to create a smoky eye, you also get a super easy step-by-step guide with a helpful drawing of Mrs Wallace there in case you'd forgotten what you're going for:
Righteous is a matte cream shade and although it doesn't show up in the swatch, it works really well as a base shade on the eye. Tyranny again is a matte and is a pure chocolate-y brown while Vengeance is a dark brown satin. These two blend beautifully together and compliment my blue eyes perfectly. Furious is a matte black powder liner and Anger is a pearl frost shade for the inner eye and highlighting the brow bone. Again, Anger doesn't show up hugely well in the swatch photo but it's actually a really good highlighter when on the eye.
Left to right; Anger, Furious, Vengeance, Tyranny, Righteous.
Using all four, as per the guide.
The palette gets a huge thumbs up for me, you could easily wear this in a daytime friendly way and then for night time; smoke it up even more, adding liquid liner as well for added oomph. The shadows are really pigmented, so easy to blend and all work very well together. I can see this taking over as my eyeshadow palette of choice.
The lipstick, in the shade Mrs Mia Wallace (best name for a lipstick ever) is housed in a gunmetal case and twists up to reveal a truly stunning deep red. This, ladies and gents is my kind of colour.
I kind of wish I'd also bought the accompanying lip liner with this as it's a tricky one to apply. I used a nude lip liner as I had it to hand but I also needed a lip brush cause it really needs extra care in applying it- it's seriously pigmented and runs the risk of going all over the shop. It's worth it though because this is just a beautiful rich ruby red with a lovely sheen and is my ideal red for Autumn/Winter.
Longevity is surprisingly good with this too, I needed a top-up after eating but otherwise it didn't budge and even at that there was still a good amount left on my lips after lunch. It's not a drying formula either as it's more of a satin so it'll be good for the upcoming colder months too.
There's also a glitter eyeliner, a nail polish and as I said, a lip liner in the collection. If you're interested I'd get them now as they're limited edition and selling fast.
Have you bought anything from the collection?
