Urban Decay’s *NEW* Born to Run collection



I was so excited to see this new collection from one of my favorite brands, Urban Decay. I love eyeshadow palettes and I was really excited to see what this new collection would hold. I will tell you right now, I was not disappointed.

I will start with the look. I have said before, I am very attracted to packaging. The outside box is interesting, but I really love the look of the palette and the lipstick holder. It is very visually interesting.

I love the size of this palette. Some people probably won’t like it because it is very large, but (to me) large means more product and more possibilities. This palette has 21 colors that are absolutely gorgeous. There are so many possible looks with this palette. I love color, and this palette definitely has that too. pans

I have been using this palette for about a week and have never done the same look twice!

The formula is typical of urban decay. The colors are very vibrant, especially the shimmers when they are applied wet. They are very easy to blend and there isn’t a whole lot of fallout from the pans, which I love. I hate when eye shadow powder goes everywhere and dirties the palette so quickly.

I do have a small problem with this palette, but it would not affect me purchasing. I hate the look of the pans. It almost looks like they aren’t full because so much of the pan is showing and it definitely affects the aesthetics of the palette itself. Also, I don’t think there are enough mattes. I would have loved to see a couple more matte colors to take the place of a couple of the shimmers, but that is obviously personal preference.

I also got one of the lipsticks and it is gorgeous!! Again, the packaging is very visually interesting. The lipstick is so creamy. The color is a little sheer at first, but it is buildable and looks amazing.


I did not get any of the eyeliner. I really like to use shadow as liner and there are a few shades in the palette that make great liners. Also, the liners are waterproof and I do not like waterproof anything!! The colors look promising, but not really worth the extra money when there are colors you can use in the palette.

Overall, this collection is definitely a good one to buy. This palette will give you so many looks, so even at the $49 price tag, I think it is worth it. The lipstick is $18. Both are available from Urban Decay and from Ulta.

BTW, my favorite colors are hell Ride, Wild Heart, and Guilt Trip. What do you think your favorites would be?IMG_1203

    I do love the design on the box…and when opened it screams “Melissa.” 🙂 Obviously, I wouldn’t buy it, but I’m thrilled you are enjoying it…also it does look like they didn’t fill the pans. That’s not a bonus if you just see a pic. Keep having fun with it! 😉

  9. I told myself I wasn’t going to buy anymore palettes for a bit until I use up what I have, but this palette has so many interesting colors, I don’t know if I can resist! I adore Urban Decay’s eye shadows!

  10. Wow I actually didn’t expect to like the color choices as much as I do, but they really picked some great ones for this palette! I’m with you, though. I’d prefer to see more mattes than shimmers! I’m going to have to go to Ulta and see if I can find it in person.
