It seems to me that everyone is on the search for the perfect red lip(stick)(gloss)(pencil)(stain). I actually have plenty of red (or reddish) favourites, namely MAC’s Lady Danger, NARS Pop Life, NARS Red Square, NARS Cruella, NARS Rita, Bite Beauty Cranberry … and the list goes on …

All these reds are similar in some ways, and if you were to ask my husband, they are exactly the same … but what do boys know? (throw rocks at them!).

I get asked what red I’m wearing anytime I am wearing red, but the one red … the one lovely, perfect, stay put red that always garners a side eye … and the kind of side eye that says “you better watch your makeup bag, because I’m about to grab that lipstick from you …” is Urban Decay’s Pulp Fiction lipstick in Mrs. Mia Wallace.

I have istagrammed this lip color before, and even mentioned it on the blog previously. This lip colour is/was part of Urban Decay’s ode to the cult classic Pulp Fiction and it’s 20th anniversary of the film’s debut. The entire collection was inspired by the Queen B herself, Mrs. Mia Wallace.

I have worn this lip color to many bride’s and their wedding days, and guaranteed, SOMEONE in the bridal party will ask me what I’m wearing and state : that’s what I want. I have had Mothers of the Bride insist on having it. Bridesmaids glare at it in thievery.

A deep blood red, this lip color is insane. It looks great against many skintones. It’s not too matte, not too shiny. It has a great slip over the lips and stays all day. Should it wear off a bit it never looks garish … it’s perfect.

Now don’t get me wrong … there are other reds that are also perfect because you know, there are many tones of reds to be worn and each one is special … but as of late, this is it. This is the one you will find in my purse or coat pocket that I cannot live without!

So, your homework for this week : treat yourself and pick up Mrs. Mia Wallace … it’s still available on the Urban Decay website and select Sephora’s where the collection is still available.
