Warm...Warmer...Disco!


This purchase was entirely enabled by the Wondegondigo herself, Mrs.Bellyhead.

Being a fan of the film, I was excited when I heard Urban Decay was releasing a Pulp Fiction Collection. In high school, the film was a big deal to my best friend, Richard, and I. Minus the bands, my hair was unintentionally cut like hers, Richard dyed his blonde locks black, we would go by the names Mia Wallace and Vincent Vega, quote the movie, and randomly perform the Jack Rabbit Slims Twist Contest throughout our school. However, after seeing it on the brand's website, I decided to pass. During one of my talks with Jane (a.k.a Bellyhead) via the twitter, she asked if I was getting anything from the Pulp Fiction collection. Yup, just that simple innocent question, sparked me to take a second look at the collection that you see before you.

I am so happy with the items I picked up from the collection, especially the eyeshadow palette and lipstick!


In frankness, there is nothing original about the eyeshadow shades, but if you're into makeup, you know that it isn't only the color of the shadows; It's also about their texture, pigmentation, how they blend, finish, etc. At least this is how I justify owning hundreds of the same shade ^-^'

Urban Decay Pulp Fiction Eyeshadow Palette swatches. 

The eye shadows in the Pulp Fiction palette are silky, creamy, pigmented, and blend like a dream! I went on urbandecay.com to see if the palette was still available, and found that it was on sale from $34 to $16. The palette is a bargain at $34, but it's a steal at $16. 


I do love the cool-toned, medium-dark red color of the Pulp Fiction 24/7 Glide-On Lip Pencil in Mrs. Mia Wallace, but there is something about the 24/7 Glide-On Lip Pencil formula that I'm not completely sold on. Yes, the Mrs. Mia Wallace lip pencil is pigmented, applies evenly, is long lasting, and almost smudge proof...ALMOST...and that is were my issue lies. When applying darker lip pencils, especially reds, you do have to be a little more careful. But, with the 24/7 Glide-On formula, you have to be a surgeon in your application. At times, the formula tugs on the lips, causing the slightest error that can easily escalate into a red-stained mess. Don't get me wrong, I really like the  Mrs. Mia Wallace lip pencil (I just need to handle with care), even more so when paired with the lipstick in the collection.


I incessantly wore the Revolution Lipstick in Mrs. Mia Wallace last week, and what a stunner it is! The Revolution Lipstick in Mrs. Mia Wallace is a voluptuous, juicy, gorgeous, deep-blood red. This is my first time trying a Revolution lipstick, and if their formula is as rich, solidly-pigmented, long-wearing, I definitely want to buy more. Mrs. Mia Wallace is a gorgeous red that will look stunning on any skin tone, I heart this lippy.

  1. Liz! I was so bummed that the palette went on sale immediately after I bought it. :( The palette shades look great for a neutral lover. But oh dear, that deep red is amazingly beautiful and really looks spectacular on you! <3

    1. I'm so glad that I have zero will power when it comes to makeup. I would have kicked myself for missing out on this collection.

      Were you able to get your mitts on the lip products? I LOVE them!
