Beauty File: Urban Decay Pulp Fiction Collection

Playing with makeup can either make me feel excited or anxious...depending of the degree of difficulty.  I love makeup as much as any woman but do tend to sway toward the more natural looking makeup. When ever I am given the opportunity to preview and sample new makeup I'm like a kid in a candy store...I want to try it out right away and all at once.  So I was especially excited to sample the new Urban Decay Pulp Fiction collection.  Pulp Fiction is a cult classic movie with so many great characters and lines we all probably know. One of the most memorable characters is Mrs. Mia Wallace played by Uma Thurman.

The Urban Decay Pulp Fiction Collections is based on Mrs. Mia Wallace and her unique, yet classic look. The black bob hair style to the crisp white shirt and the iconic red lipstick is a signature look of Mia Wallace.   With the 20th year anniversary of the movie this year Urban Decay co-founder and Chief Creative Office Wende Zomnir wanted to commemorate this occasion the best she knows how...with makeup!  The collection started off with a simple lipstick and nail polish, quickly morphed into a full collection of makeup.

My attempt at following the directions on the "get the look" card from the eye palette
I only previewed the eye palette and lipstick from this collection, since those are the make up items I tend to use more frequently. Having used the Naked eye palette from Urban Decay almost on a daily basis, I really wanted to try out the Pulp Fiction Palette. The colors are classic shades that will compliment almost any one and comes with a easy to follow step by step card on how to recreate Mia Wallace's dark edgy look from the movie. I really enjoy the how-to step by step instructions as my makeup skills aren't as great I would like. My makeup skills are very basic so any help I can get is welcomed. The eye palette includes 5 different shades with names from frequently used words in the movie Pulp Fiction such as Righteous (light cream matte), Tyranny (warm brown matte), Vengeance (deep taupe-brown matte-satin), Furious (white satin) and Anger (black satin w/slight tonal sparkle). All comes in a cool compact with mirror and small double edged brush.

Final outcome of eyes and lips using the Pulp Fiction Collection - I'm not the best at makeup application so don't judge! LOL 

The Revolution Lipstick is a blood red shade to give you that bad-ass pout just like Mia Wallace in the Pulp Fiction.  In fact the red shade its self is called Mrs. Mia Wallace and its a great classic red lipstick.  The lipstick is smooth and velvety and is long lasting, which doesn't dry out your lips.  I have recently discovered the Revolution lipstick by UD and love their formula, which makes your lips plump and leaves them looking cushiony soft while also moisturizing.


Overall I liked this collection, my favorite is the lipstick, which looks best when you line your lips with a lip pencil.  The eye palette is nice too but the colors a little too muted and powdery, the small brush is not the greatest for application due to its size.  If you are fan of the movie and Urban Decay then you should definitely go out and get the collection.  I checked the website today and the eye palette is now on sale for only $16!

  2. The steel Daytona has not only been a rare bird that replica watches has often made extremely difficult to obtain, but also an icon among luxury chronographs. I had hublot replica around for a couple of weeks and, not too long after starting to wear it. Has it retained its magic, or has its fame made it let its guard down as competition became fiercer every year. Lots of questions on my mind, so I set off seeking answers. Although, come to think of it, I am tag heuer replica quite sure how this scientifically questionable saying caught on, the Daytona history at this fake rolex sale may very well be coming out your elbow too you have heard it so many times. But these shall already suffice to keep decent and fun human beings from spending too much time around you, should you talk about these frequently. The emphasis is on not calling everything by its reference all the replica watches sale like a total douche and not on being ignorant about watch history.
