With Halloween fast approaching it’s time to rock a red lip, smoke up the eyes and don your disguise, which makes it pretty much prime time to get a piece of the Pulp Fiction collection from Urban Decay. This super sexy five set is the most exciting thing to come out of the big UD since our beloved Naked Palettes (dun dun duuuun) and is a true ode to the iconic film’s 20th Anniversary. The products are all inspired by Pulp Fiction’s heroine, Mrs Mia Wallace. If you’ve seen the film you’ll know there are many things we probably shouldn’t idolise about her, but when it comes to rocking a bold hair and make up look (and flared ankle swingers) she’s pretty up there and this is the best way to get her signature look.
I actually fell in love with it all before I’d even touched anything because the packaging is seriously cool. Covered in delicate details, classic quotes and little trinkets from the film, it’s a true collectors dream and be warned, you may deem this too attractive to use. However, if you do decided to dig your brushes and fingers into it, you’ll most likely love the products too. The eyeshadows, although not made for everyday/travelling, are of the pigmented, long lasting quality you’d expect from Urban Decay, as is the amazing gunmetal glitter which I’ve used a surprising amount already- casual glitter Tuesdays anyone? The lipstick and liner are a match made in statement lip heaven that can be used together or alone and will most likely be firm favourites over the festive season. With quite a glossy finish the lipstick isn’t the best at staying put though, so let’s just say there ain’t no hiding who you’ve been under the mistletoe with… The nail polish is the only thing I really have a love hate relationship with- I’m convinced the colour is my perfect Autumn vampy shade with an amazing glazed and slightly glittery finish. However, it chips like no tomorrow and I’ve yet to find a top coat that’ll keep it on more than a couple of days so do let me know if you have miracle products for this problem. All in all it’s a fabulous collection and one that I’ll be reaching for an awful lot this week. Even if it also makes me want to reach for a Royale with cheese and 5$ shake.
