Urban Decay - Pulp Fiction palette.

Hi errbadeh! I'm back for another blog post!

My homegurl who's at the UK currently sent me a goodie a month ago and it is Urban Decay's Pulp Fiction palette!!! Pulp Fiction was a movie released in 1994 and it starred Uma Thurman as Mia Wallace, which this palette is based upon. Not knowing anything about the movie, I asked my mom about it and wanted her opinion if the eyeshadow shades truly scream Mia Wallace's character, and mom said yes. So, well done UD!

I've always wanted a small palette with neutral and warm shades that is suitable for travelling. And since I don't have any of Urban Decay's Naked Basic palettes, Pulp Fiction it is!  

↑ The box that the palette comes in. Sleek and straight to the point, Pulp Fiction style!

↑ The packaging of the palette.

↑ The palette, with 5 eyeshadows and a brush.

↑ The dual ended brush included in this palette, in which the bristles are very dense (love it!).

↑ Righteous, Tyranny, Vengeance, Furious, Anger.
(Awesome names for an awesome character)

Here are the swatches applied dry, without any eyeshadow base and under white LED lighting.

↬ Righteous - a light cream matte shade.
↬ Tyranny - a burnt brown shade with a little orange undertone.
↬ Vengeance - a medium-dark brown shade with a satin finish.

↬ Furious - a light, shimmery white shade (perfect for highlighting the inner corners of the eyes!).
↬ Anger - a black shade with a satin finish.

(I was expecting the Furious to be the black shade and Anger to be the white one. That's because, from what I can see, the palette above shows the black one above the white one, with the names labelled as "Furious/Anger". But I thought to myself, "Black sounds angrier than it sounds furious", so I double-checked UD's official website to be sure. Turns out that I was right, black is angrier than it is furious. Perhaps the shadows were potted in this particular palette of mine wrongly as the one on UD's official website had the white shade on top of the black one, as opposed to mine.)

Regardless of the misplaced/mis-potted eyeshadow, this palette has some amazing color pay-off! They are that pigmented, even without the need to apply them on any base or eyeshadow primer. But one thing though, the eyeshadows are a little chalky so having fallouts is likely. That wouldn't be a problem for me as I can always apply my eyeshadows first and wipe away the fallouts with a facial wipe prior to applying foundation and the likes.

I haven't come across any online sellers in Brunei that carries this particular palette, except for @theitgirlbn (click here for link!). This palette is priced at BND64. If you are interested in it, just holla at them!

I hope that this post has helped you! Thank you so much for reading and if you have any questions, feel free to leave a comment below. Have a great weekend ahead of you!
