I can’t believe it has been 20 years since the release of Pulp Fiction and the beginning of my love affair with Quentin Tarantino. Well with his movies… Even more shocking to me was the realization that despite my love for this movie that, until this week, it had been probably 15 years since I’d seen it! (Yes, I’m old) To celebrate the 20th Anniversary Urban Decay has curated a limited edition Pulp Fiction makeup collection inspired by the badass Mrs. Mia Wallace. Is the collection as good as the movie. I would have to say YES!
You can recreate the dark, edgy look that is quintessentially Mai using the Urban Decay Pulp Fiction Eyeshadow Palette ($40 CAD). There are five shades (three of which are new) which all contain the Urban Decay Pigment Infusion System. These eyeshadows are absolutely incredible. So pigmented and smooth. They almost feel creamy. They blend beautifully and they are really long lasting. I actually had trouble removing the eyeshadow swatches on my arm and that is not a problem I usually have with powder eyeshadows. Even the mattes are absolute perfection. While the colours may not be what some may consider “exciting” they are a perfectly formulated collection of neutral eyeshadows that anyone can use.
The limited edition palette shades are:
- Righteous – light cream matte
- Tyranny – warm brown matte
- Vengeance – deep taupe-brown matte-satin
- Furious – white satin
- Anger – black satin with slight tonal sparkle
The Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick in Mrs. Mia Wallace ($26 CAD) gives you deep blood red lips with insane pigment and a creamy shine. The formula contains nourishing oils to leave lips soft and hydrated and Maxi-Lip plumps. The lipstick is packaged in a limited edition jet-black case. The Urban Decay 24/7 Lip Pencil in Mrs. Mia Wallace ($24 CAD) is the perfect creamy, long-wearing companion to the lipstick. I have never tried these lip liners before and I’m really impressed. I will have to check out the other shades available. Vitamin E, jojoba oil, and cottonseed oil nourish skin and give a smooth application while the waterproof formula prevents feathering and lasts like crazy.
The Urban Decay Nail Colour in Mrs. Mia Wallace ($18 CAD) is an intense deep blood red inspired by Mia’s look in the film. Urban Decay’s nail polish formula is 3-free. The limited edition jet black cap with adorable skull tops this full sized 10ml bottle.
While Mia didn’t actually sport any glitter liner in the 90’s Urban Decay thinks she’d look hot in this black with black and silver sparkle Heavy Metal Glitter Eyeliner in Gunmetal ($23 CAD). I think I’d have to agree. The glitter is in a clear base and easily buildable. It is very smudge and budge proof and soothes skin with peach and cucumber extract.
The limited edition Urban Decay Pulp Fiction Collection will be available at Sephora and select Shoppers Drug Mart locations August 2014.
