Urban Decay Pulp Fiction Palette

Wearing Urban Decay’s Pulp Fiction Palette on my eyes (just call me Mrs. Mia “Karen” Wallace)

If…

  • You like carrying on entire conversations with friends and family via Pulp Fiction movie quotes (“Bring out the gimp!” “I love you, Honey Bunny.” “All right, everybody be cool. This is a robbery!”).
  • Your Urban Decay cup runneth over, and yet despite owning all three Naked palettes, you still want more, more, MORE!
  • You dream of wearing brown, black and/or beige eyeshadow while doing the twist with John Travolta at a 1950s diner.
  • You don’t mind a little fallout.

Then you might want to say “What happened to my Honda?”

Wait — that’s from the movie. :)

Let’s try that again…

You might want to say “I do” to the new $34 Urban Decay Pulp Fiction Palette.

Urban Decay Pulp Fiction Palette

Mmm, French fries with mayo…

Inspired by Mrs. Mia Wallace herself, Uma Thurman’s character from the movie, this five-piece (three new shadows and two re-promotes) limited edition palette, which is part of UD’s fall collection, is all about the Mrs. and recreating her look.

Inside the palette…

I’ve found that when I wear the shadows in this palette — Righteous (a matte light cream), Tyranny (a matte warm brown), Vengeance (a deep, satiny matte taupe-brown), Furious (a satiny white) and Anger (a satiny black with a slight sparkle) — things get very dark, very quickly, just like they do in the movie.

The fall launch commemorates the 20-year anniversary of the movie that gave us phrases like, “Bring out the gimp,” and the products are all designed around one of the flick’s iconic characters, Mrs. Mia Wallace (played by the gorgeous Uma Thurman).

“I do believe Marsellus Wallace, my husband, your boss, told you to take ME out and do WHATEVER I WANTED. Now I wanna dance, I wanna win. I want that trophy, so dance good.”

– Mrs. Mia Wallace

Try Urban Decay Perversion Mascara for Lascivious Lash Love With Major Thickness at the Base

Published in: Eyes, Makeup, Product Reviews, Urban Decay

Wearing the new Urban Decay Perversion Mascara on my upper lashes

It would have been oddly poetic had I been wearing Urban Decay Perversion Mascara ($22) on one of the times (yes, it happened more than once) I was flashed on the sidewalks of downtown San Francisco.

It happened, not once, but twice, walking to and from work. Naughty bits and all, and both times within a six-month period.

Ewww…

I’m just saying that I think I would have appreciated the irony, is all. Witnessing an act of perversion while actually wearing a mascara called Perversion.

Or maybe that’s just me and my strange sense of humor. :)

The latest lash-loving mascara from Urban Decay, Perversion is supposed to be blacker than black (wait — is that even possible?), with the deepest, darkest pigments imaginable.

Lash roots like WHOA!

Urban Decay Perversion Mascara Before and After

I’ve been using it for a couple weeks so far, and it’s weird — in a way, Perversion makes me feel like a gardener.

Wait — that didn’t come out right.

I mean, this stuff is like Miracle Grow for lash roots. It’s really great at building up thickness around the base.

But that’s not all. It also doesn’t flake or smudge, and it’s easy to remove.

One coat of Perversion, and my lashes look thick and lush, as long as I follow the right procedure…

First, I position the brush at the roots, and then really slowly (like s-l-o-w-l-y) wiggle the wand back and forth as I comb through to the ends, concentrating more of the product at the base.

Urban Decay’s New Clothing-Optional Naked Flushed Palettes in Native, Streak and Strip Make It Easy To Bring Your Highlighter, Bronzer and Blush With You

Coming at ‘cha! — riding on a wave of nakedness, three new ways to strip down for summer from Urban Decay.

Yup, I think it’s safe to say that UD is on something of a naked streak (get it, streak?) based on their three latest Naked Flushed Palettes ($30 each).

Native, Strip and Streak arrive to the party with a disrobed desire to enhance skin, diffuse light and give a fresh glow to yo’ face, baby cakes.

Each one comes with one powder bronzer, a highlighter and a blush.

UD bestowed a satiny bronze bronzer upon Native, the palette I’m wearing in these pics, as well as a frosty pinkish beige highlighter and a matte hot pink blush.

The second palette, Streak, is ready for a warm roll in the haaay!. It comes with a warm, matte bronzer; a frosty peach highlighter; and a matte coral blush.

And Strip, the third palette, glimmers with a frosty golden tan bronzer (so shiny!), a gold highlighter and a matte mauve blush.

The new Urban Decay Naked Flushed Bronzer/Highlighter/Blush Trios…

  • Micronized, jet-milled powder formula free of parabens, fragrances, alcohol and mineral oil
  • The bronzer, highlighter and blush are all full size
  • UD designed them to work with all skin tones
  • New to the UD permanent line for summer 2014

I wear bronzer, blush and highlighter on a pretty much daily basis, so I like the idea of these, especially late in the week, when my brain is usually so fried that small decisions like which bronzer/blush/highlighter to wear is more than I can take, haha.

I think all three color combinations are super flattering, but my favorites are probably Native and Streak. For uber-natural looks, I like those two the most.

The Urban Decay Summer 2014 Collection Puts on the Glitz With Majorly Blinged-Out Loose Glitter

Published in: Collections, Makeup, Urban Decay

Urban Decay Summer 2014

Summer, summer, summertime! — even though it’s only the first day of spring.

If I can’t come back in my next life as Wonder Woman, I’m sure as hell coming back as a Vegas showgirl. ‘Cause it ain’t happening in this lifetime, that’s for damned sure. I’ve got the flexibility of a concrete pretzel and a high kick that barely clears the height of a footstool.

But you know what? Even though I will (probably) never don a big feathered headdress and dance around in a sparkly outfit on a Vegas stage, at least I can say that in this life, in the summer of 2014, I will have glittered and sparkled, and for that, I gotta give big ups to Urban Decay.

The Heavy Metal Loose Glitters in their new summer collection are so bling, so BAM! — that you sparkle all day and night LIKE YOU FRICKIN’ MEAN IT, MAN, when you wear them on your eyes.

They’re coming soon to UD counters but glittering now online with the rest of the summer collection.

Lots of fun things to play with here. Along with the six loose glitters, there’s also a weightless liquid glitter glue (to keep your glitter in place), a crop of several new liners for smokey eye looks and two new polishes (there’s also a small polish kit not shown here).

Are you ready for a quick tour? Here, take my hand… :)

Heavy Metal Loose Glitters ($12 each)

The new Urban Decay Heavy Metal Loose Glitters ($12 each)

These are my favorite things in the launch! Even if you don’t fancy yourself as a glitter gal/guy, you still may want to boogie down with these.

They’re just so fun and sparkly! — and guaranteed to put a smile on your face. :)

The flecks of glitter are bigger than the flecks in Urban Decay’s Heavy Metal Glitter Eyeliners, so I’m warning you — brace yourself for major glitz.

Here’s the idea: you’re supposed to apply a small amount of Urban Decay’s clear Bondage makeup adhesive ($14) to your lids (or wherever else you’d like to wear loose glitter) first, and then pack your choice of glitters on top.

Once the glue dries, that glitter isn’t going anywhere.

I appreciate the sifter caps, too, which make it easy to regulate how much glitter I’m using. Don’t forget to remove the tape that covers the holes the first time you open it, though, because I didn’t see it at first and kept wondering, “Hmm… Why isn’t the glitter coming out?” I was just about to bite the sifter when I noticed the tape, haha! #schoolforthegifted

Also, if you plan to line your eyes with one of the new liners in the launch, you may want to do your liner before applying your glitter.

Why? Oh, because I think it’s just a really, REALLY big pain to apply liner on top of glitter. I’m just sayin’… Save yourself the drama by lining first.
