How Badass is the Pulp Fiction Makeup Collection?

Urban Decay's Pulp Fiction Makeup Collection!

Urban Decay’s Pulp Fiction Collection!

I can’t even describe how excited I was to see that Sephora package arrive today (more excited than usual even) because I knew it contained the items I’d ordered from the Urban Decay Pulp Fiction makeup collection. I am a huge Tarantino fan and have seen Pulp Fiction about a million times and have even been Mrs. Mia Wallace for Halloween. This collection did not disappoint.

My most favourite details about this collection? 1. The iconic “path of the righteous man” quote is printed on the eyeshadow palette. 2. The quote is even written inside the boxes containing the lipstick and nail polish, and 3. The lipstick and nail polish shades are both named “Mrs. Mia Wallace”! This is seriously the coolest packaging ever.

Let’s start with the amazing Stay Cool Honey Bunny eyeshadow palette. The shadows are the buttery soft, pigmented goodness you’d expect from Urban Decay. And love the names!

These are shades I would gravitate to anyway – very neutral, cool toned browns and creams.

Then there’s the beautiful deep red lipstick. I love how the Revolution lipstick tube is black (although it isn’t reading as quite as black in this photo).

I wasn’t in love with the Revolution Lipstick I bought in “Liar”. I didn’t think the formula worked for a nude lipstick (too opaque and matte) but I think it works better in this vampy red. It went on extremely smooth and stayed on for hours and surprisingly didn’t feel drying. It’s a deep, cool-toned red. Definitely very Mia Wallace.

I also got the nail polish in “Mrs. Mia Wallace”, although Uma Thurman famously wore Chanel “Vamp” nail polish in the original film. Urban Decay’s version is similar (a dark, blood red) but not the same as the shade she wore in the film. Vamp was more of a blackened plum. I love the Urban Decay nail polish bottle with the black skull on the top though!

    You should really consider picking up the lip liner too, it’s so perfect with the lipstick and it stays put really well! Love this collection!
