Round-up: Urban Decay Pulp Fiction Collection Overview & Thoughts

Urban Decay Pulp Fiction Collection
Urban Decay Pulp Fiction Collection

Urban Decay Pulp Fiction Collection launches on July 16th (per Urban Decay’s Twitter account)–most likely appearing on their website first, then releasing elsewhere–and will be launched at Sephora, ULTA, Macy’s, beauty.com and urbandecay.com. It’s a small, edited collection, and in general, it is dupable, though the quality is there in the majority of the products.

Urban Decay Pulp Fiction Palette

Urban Decay Pulp Fiction Palette ($34.00 for 4 x 0.06 oz.) is designed to help you recreate the look Mia Wallace’s look from the movie. Urban Decay says there are three new shades (so two are repromotes), but these were all new to me (at least, by these names). When I first saw the palette, it reminded me of Naked Basics, and there is overlap. Righteous is closest to Foxy, though it is lighter and brighter than Foxy. None seemed similar to Tyranny. Vengeance is darker and more shimmery, with a stronger red tone (versus yellow) than Faint. Furious is very similar to Venus, though Venus’ texture is quite different. Anger is more shimmery, less warm-toned compared to Crave. They are similar enough, however, that if you rarely use the Naked Basics palette, I’m not sure that this one would be much more useful. The Pulp FIction palette leans warmer overall. I found the eyeshadows to be very blendable, easy to use, and fairly pigmented across the board. I wish the palette itself was more compact, because then it would be travel-friendly, and though the colors are dupable, they work well together for a mostly matte neutral eye.
