Urban Decay Pulp Fiction Palette and Lipstick - Swatches + Looks

By Wednesday, September 24, 2014 , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

With this year marking the twentieth anniversary of the release of the film, we decided to commemorate the occasion the UD way—with an ultra limited-edition “PULP FICTION” collaboration. Our inspiration? None other than the cool (and completely badass) Mrs. Mia Wallace. -urbandecay.com

I doubt I could express this collection any better than what is above. This is a collection that I just had to have after seeing rave reviews on both Liner and Glitter and Gloss and Canadian Fashionista's sites. Needless to say I have not been disappointed with my choices, the palette and the lipstick.
Recreate Mrs. Mia Wallace’s dark, edgy look with this palette from our ultra limited-edition “PULP FICTION” collection. This collection has everything you need to recreate Mia’s dark, edgy look from the film, including this limited-edition palette. It contains five shades of Eyeshadow (three are brand new!). -urbandecay.com
I must say that these shadows are super soft and buttery, no sign of chalkiness at all. They have quickly have become some of my favourite UD shadows.

I find if you touch them with any brush, lots and lots of product will loosen up on the quad, more so than with any other UD palette I own. I think that has to do with most of the shades being matte. But they aren't chalky, they are creamy, blendible heaven,
Recreate Mrs. Mia Wallace’s dark, edgy look with this creamy, badass, blood-red Revolution Lipstick, part of our ultra limited-edition “PULP FICTION” collection. Like every shade of Revolution Lipstick, this shade features our Pigment Infusion System for insane color payoff with creamy shine. This shade comes in a limited-edition, jet-black version of our lipstick case.  -urbandecay.com
First off I love the black packaging. Such a silly thing to love, I know, but it has waves and ridges and is slightly heavy and black, it just screams "take me home". Then inside is a very luxurious blood red lipstick that beacons to be worn. If you can't tell I like this lipstick, and guess what it likes me. It is just the perfect shade of red for my skin tone.
Mrs. Mia Wallace Revolution Lipstick
It goes on smooth and looks divine on, but I would recommend using a lip brush, the shade of it in the tube is just too clumsy for direct application (or at least in my case).

While I wanted the matching liner, I just could not justify the cost of it. Annabelle's Flame lipliner is a perfect match, so I plan on using that with it in the future.
Left to right: Mrs. Mia Wallace lipstick (blood-red lipstick), Righteous (light cream matte), Tyranny (warm brown matte), Vengeance (deep taupe-brown matte-satin),  Anger (black satin w/slight tonal sparkle) and Furious (white satin).
Now, Mrs. Mia Wallace in the movie doesn't portray a mid 90's style but more a mid 60's style. Strangly enough when I put these shadows on I instantly feel like I'm in the mid 90's again. While I love to be trendy, and nothing in makeup is more trendy right now than 90's makeup, I certainly would not intentionally try to pull of a 90's look. I am no 14 any more like I was when this movie was out, and feel quite foolish wearing a look like that. There was a time and place for that in my life, and for me it was 1994 not 2014.

That being said I still don't know what makes this palette so 90's to me. Maybe it is the fact that is mainly matte browns. I just don't know. Maybe it is because I used pencil liner instead of liquid. Still not sure. I seriously used to wear matte brown shadows with pencil liner and nude lips all the time from 1994 until 1998 so maybe that is it. 

So bellow is a FOTD I did using a matte cheek and brown cream lip with the palette. A look far to familiar to my youthful days, and as such I just feel uncomfortable wearing.

After that a look that feels much more current to me, the cheeks with a  bit of shimmer and the lips in the UD Mrs. Mia Wallace lip colour.
