I went in to Selfridges this week on a mission to purchase the Eyes to Kill eyeshadow in Pulp Fiction. On finding the display and realising there were no names on the pots, I asked one of the sales assistants if they could tell me which one was Pulp Fiction. I was told that were no names and that they had no idea which one it might be. I hadn't made a note of the number so I decided to take the route of swatching them all and choosing one I liked. I settled on #4, a silvery grey with a hint of mauve, only to discover it was out of stock.
I resigned myself to going without so was very pleased when later I managed to get hold of it in Harvey Nichols at their shopping event. I've subsequently verified that #4 is the shade Pulp Fiction. I'd recommend that if you're looking for a specific shade it's worth going armed with the number.
The Eyes to Kill eyeshadows are a pressed powder formula and the texture is quite wet and similar in feel to a cream. They come in a small glass pot and there's an extra cap inside which I assume is to keep the powder pressed down. They are all quite metallic in their finish and a number are reasonably sparkly too. Pulp Fiction is shimmery with an almost foiled finish, especially when swatched. I suppose it's a relatively blingy choice for me but I was particularly drawn to these because of the creamy texture. I apply it with my finger tips, just like I would with a cream. You can use a brush but I believe fingers give the most intense effect.
I have worn Pulp Fiction twice now, both times I have applied directly to the lid without any primer. I was surprised that it didn't crease, especially in the current heat, but my eyelids seem particularly dry at the moment. I did notice some fading of the colour towards the end of the day and it seemed to become a little more sparkly as the base colour faded.
I thought that Pulp Fiction might be similar to Rouge Bunny Rouge loose pigment in Wishing For Wings. They're both silvery shades with a hint of mauve but when swatched side by side, Wishing For Wings is definitely more mauve in colour. I was relieved to see I hadn't brought home a dupe!
I'm tempted to get another of these eyeshadows. I was surprisingly taken by the lighter shades, Champagne in particular appealed to me. I think that #3 Purpura that Lipglossiping went for is very pretty too.
