Urban Decay Mrs. Mia Wallace Revolution Lipstick
Urban Decay Mrs. Mia Wallace Revolution Lipstick

Urban Decay Mrs. Mia Wallace Revolution Lipstick ($22.00 for 0.09 oz.) is described as a “deep blood red.” It’s a rich, vibrant, medium-dark red with subtle, cool undertones and a soft shine. Urban Decay Gash (LE, $22.00) is more muted, cooler-toned. MAC Just a Bite (LE, $16.00) is more matte. NARS Mascate (P, $26.00) is more matte. MAC Such Flare (LE, $16.00) is more matte, darker. MAC Runaway Red (LE, $16.00) is more matte. MAC Dark Deed (LE, $16.00) is darker, less red. Guerlain Gwen (LE, $51.00) is cooler-toned, lighter. Guerlain Garconne (P, $51.00) is brighter. Giorgio Armani The Red (400) (P, $32.00) is lighter. Dior Diorling (LE, $36.00) is more matte. Chanel Dragon (DC, $32.00) is glossier, shimmery. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

The Revolution Lipstick formula is supposed to be richly pigmented, hydrating, and have a “creamy shine.” Mrs. Mia Wallace was intensely pigmented with mostly opaque color coverage in a single swipe. It was lightly creamy, but it had noticeably less slip compared to other shades in the range. I felt like it was less glossy in finish, though it still had a noticeable shine, so it wasn’t matte. The formula was lightly hydrating and comfortable to wear–long-wearing (seven hours plus a very strong stain) but never clingy or tacky.

Urban Decay Gunmetal Heavy Metal Glitter Eyeliner
Urban Decay Gunmetal Heavy Metal Glitter Eyeliner

Urban Decay Gunmetal Heavy Metal Glitter Eyeliner ($19.00 for 0.25 fl. oz.) is described as a “black with black and silver sparkle.” It’s a mix of black and silver glitter suspended on a clear base. Tarina Tarantino Black Diamond (P, $16.00) has more black in it. NARS 47th Street (LE, $24.00) is a pencil eyeliner with a black base. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Urban Decay’s Heavy Metal Glitter Eyeliner formula is described as a “water-based, buildable formula [that] contains super-fine glitter in a clear base that dries down quickly and stays put.” It had decent color coverage, though it was buildable to semi-opaque coverage — anything more and it was three or four layers and started to actually feel heavy on the skin. The consistency is thin and watery, and it’s best applied in short strokes, which maximizes the payoff but also ensures more even distribution of the glitter. The majority of the glittery bits stayed in place over an eight-hour period, though there were a few stray ones here and there.

Urban Decay Pulp Fiction Makeup Look
Urban Decay Pulp Fiction Makeup Look

Here’s a sneak peek of the upcoming Urban Decay x Pulp Fiction collaboration! :) Stay tuned for full photos, swatches, reviews, and all that good stuff!

Eyes

For the eyes, I used the new, limited edition Urban Decay Pulp Fiction Eyeshadow Palette. I applied Righteous eyeshadow on the inner two-thirds of the lid, and then I blended Tyranny on the outer third and towards the middle of the lid. I darkened the crease with Vengeance with a larger, fluffier crease brush, and then I defined further by applying Anger with a smaller, more precise crease brush. On the brow bone, I mixed Righteous and Tyranny to blend from the darker crease color towards the brow bone. I lightly highlighted the brow bone with Furious. I used Urban Decay’s Perversion 24/7 Eyeliner on the lower lash line and water line.

Face

I began by applying Giorgio Armani Maestro (5.5) Liquid Foundation, then set with Urban Decay Naked Loose Finishing Powder. I patted on Laura Mercier Sensual Reflections Cheek Melange as a more defining/contouring blush (so it is applied a bit lower than a normal blush).

Lips & Nails

I used Urban Decay Mrs. Mia Wallace Lip Pencil on the outer edges of the lip as a liner (but didn’t fill in the lips entirely), and then I applied Urban Decay Mrs. Mia Wallace Revolution Lipstick all over the lips. I applied two coats of Urban Decay Mrs. Mia Wallace Nail Color on nails.
