Pulp Fiction homage from Urban Decay
To mark the 20th Anniversary of the cult classic film, Urban Decay has created the Pulp Fiction limited edition collection, with Uma Thurman’s Mrs Mia Wallace as the muse. The palette (£17.50) comes with five shadows (Righteous, Tyranny, Vengeance, Furious and Anger) which are blended to create a dark, edgy look to the eyes. The Mrs Mia Wallace blood red lipstick (£15) and matching pencil (£13) is a spot-on match to the colour worn in the film, and the collection is completed with a Mrs Wallace-inspired nail colour and Heavy Metal glitter eyeliner in Gun Metal (£14).

Sisley presents Phyto-Teint Expert Foundation
Phyto-Teint Expert Foundation (£79) from Sisley comes out next month.

The foundation blends with the skin and offers 12-hour coverage, and the formula is oil free and non-comedogenic, allowing the skin to breathe with wear.
