There’s not a lot to say in this post because to be perfectly honest, just look at these bad boys.
LOOK AT THEM
The packaging itself is amazing as it is and when I randomly went to buy something from the Urban Decay counter and was shown these I promptly put my name down for them when they were allowed to sell them.
How on earth had this amazing collaboration escaped my notice??
I’m a huge Tarantino fan, its something that me and my brother actually agree on and having bought him the box set many years ago i still steal them now.
The orange and red writing stands out on the black box and it all looks so striking I’m surprised I didn’t snap up the entire collection. But having put my name down for the palette, the only product they were allowed to reserve and the others being sold on a first come first serve basis I legged it into Cardiff on the morning and snapped up the lipstick and liner to match. Oops!
Here’s a sneak peek of what’s to come, I do love it when they show a swatch of the colours inside and give their names. Names always make things better don’t they??
Here’s a close up of the text:
Inside is the card I always look forward to reading when purchasing a limited edition palette from UD. The tips and tricks are always good to follow and give you an idea what they colours were there for; if only for you to totally break the rules and do your own thing anyway/
Be Cool Honey Bunny.
The attention to detail, as always, with these collaboration products always astounds me but this time I’ve been completely blown away.
My brother loves the quote below and even he was slightly impressed with how cool it all was (and as a mixed martial arts fan make up REALLY isn’t his thing).
I really did just marvel at it for a while before even opening it, the packaging was just too special. I’m not sure I could have designed it better myself, although the paper packaging does worry me for long term usage but only time will tell what that will be like.
I always love the inclusion of a mirror with these products, it’s a lovely touch and means it’s a lot easier to use them on the go and travel with them.
Here are the four shades with accompanying names and brush. I’m not sure what I think about the brush to be honest, the quality was better than i thought it would be from first glance but I still find them too small to be of any use. I’m sure I’ll be grateful for it when using the palette on the go though and for touch ups it should come in handy.
Righteous was the main reason for me buying this palette. As a firm Theodora palette fan ( I use it EVERY DAY without fail) which was also limited edition I was beginning to get worried after hitting pan on the lightest colour called Broken. It’s the perfect colour for me and after telling the lovely Haddie on the counter in the Cardiff store she showed me these.
It’s not a perfect match but it will certainly fill the gap in the ‘limited edition’ section of my collection. Or something like that.
Righteous can be described as a light cream colour and is matte.
In fact all of these colours are quite similar to the Theodora palette and so that was how I justified it to myself really, as I know that I should use all of the colours in it almost every day.
Tyranny is a lovely warm brown and is very pigmented and also matte. I didn’t think I’d like this one on me but again I was surprised and it blends with so much so easily.
Vengeance is a colour I love, described by Temptalia as a deep taupe brown matte satin, which is quite a mouthful really. The colour is amazing and similar to Theodora’s Bewitch, though you need so little I’d be surprised if this ever runs out!
Furious and Anger is the only duo colour. Furious is similar to Venus from the Naked Basics palette and Anger is similar to Crave but has a slight shimmer added as they are both satin shades.
I’ve been using Furious on the inner corner of my eye and Anger to line the outer corners and they’ve both worked really well.
Here are swatches:
You can see Righteous is a little less pigmented than the others, this was a little disappointing as it was the colour I was most excited about but nevertheless I’ll just have to use more!
Furious can be seen below, a lovely white satin colour:
Swatched on the back of my hand you can see the colours a little better, But how does it look on the eye itself??
Below shows Righteous and Tyranny on the eye (left) and Vengeance in the right picture.
Above shows Furious and Anger applied also. Its extremely wearable for a limited edition palette and this surprises me as well as lots of other reviews I’ve read online.
I can see me wearing this a lot and I’ve already been wearing it to many outings; see below for a recent picture with the Mia Wallace liner and lipstick on also:
The longevity of the lipstick is phenomenal, but that’s for another post.
What do you think of limited edition collaborations? Are you a Pulp Fiction fan?
Would you snap up the eyeshadow palette or another product in the range?
