REVIEW: Urban Decay Born To Run Palette

Urban Decay Born To Run Palette Review & Swatches

Unless you've been in hiding, you will have seen the latest palette release from Urban Decay - the Born To Run palette. In a departure from their Naked line, this palette is larger and colourful and has covered every shade you could possibly want or need. You all know that I'm a palette addict so I was delighted to get my hands on this one & I want to share my thoughts with you today!

The packaging is sturdy but slim in heavy plastic and the exterior is covered in images from all over the world that basically makes me want to grab my passport & get on an airplane! Inside is a large mirror, which is ideal for doing a full face of makeup when travelling. There are 21 stunning shadows in the palette - nudes, jewel tones and smokey eye shades in a mixture of mattes and shimmers. This palette will cover you for day and night looks - subtle and strong - there is no look that you couldn't achieve with this one palette, which makes it ideal for those who are new to makeup or who travel a lot and don't want to take a lot of products or those who want to create a capsule makeup collection as all bases are covered within this one palette. As expected from Urban Decay, the shadows are pigmented, finely milled and long-lasting. Makeup novices and experts alike will love this palette. Now on to the shade selection:
