Hi all! I’m excited to be reviewing the Urban Decay Born to Run Eyeshadow Palette! When I saw it was about to be released, I had to have it! I drove to my nearest Sephora last Sunday to pick it up as soon as it came out.
The first picture is the front of the box and this si the back. I like how it shows all of the gorgeous shades! Here is the front and back of the palette:
I love all of the travel photos! They are really fun. I haven’t seen a palette designed like this before. Plus, its made of a sturdy plastic and has a really nice mirror.
Lets look inside:
The top photo shows the amazing mirror, but in the bottom photo the light was better. In the bottom photo, the shades look truer to life.
I love the shade selection! I think a lot of palettes being released right now look very summery — lots of bronzes, blues and oranges. And they are really pretty. But this palette has those shades and so much more, plus I think the shades will work so well in the fall and winter, too!
On to the swatches (I’ll be going by rows):
From left to right — Breakaway (warm ivory shimmer), Stranded (pale rose gold with tonal micro-shimmer), Blaze (light metallic peach with pink shift), Weekender (light neutral beige matte), Still Shot (bright peach), Riff (brown-nude matte with floating micro-sparkle), Good As Gone (deep brown with iridescent micro-shimmer)
Hell Ride (deep fuchsia matte), Baja (burnt orange matte), Accelerate (reddish copper metallic), Guilt Trip (smoky purple shimmer), Ignite (rose gold metallic), Smog (deep coppery bronze shimmer), Wanderlust (forest green with gold micro-shimmer)
Wildheart (bright fuchsia), Punk (red-brown matte), Double Life (metallic rust), Jet (black with deep shimmering purple shift), Drift (charcoal satin with tonal micro-sparkle), Radio (deep emerald satin), Big Sky (frosted green shimmer with iridescent micro-sparkle)
So pretty! I was excited to play with the different colors, but of course I have been reaching for the bronze and purple shades because they are so easy to use. I have just tried out the blues and greens on, and they are amazing, too! I can get SO MANY looks with this palette!
And for the quality, they are very pigmented and blend well. The quality reminds me of my Anastasia palettes. I don’t have a lot of Urban Decay, but if this is what their shadows are like, I need to get me some more. Any suggestions?
Have you picked up this palette or are you planning on it?
