Urban Decay On The Run Mini Palettes

Sunday, January 6, 2019

Happy New Year's Dolls!  So excited to ring in the new year with a fun little Urban Decay post!  I've been a collector of all Urban Decay NAKED palettes since they first launched.  There's just something about them that makes them feel so special.  When UD recently launched three On The Run Mini Palettes, i seriously could not wait to dig in!  Each palette has a specific color theme and has a good mixture of mattes and shimmers which i personally love.  When i first swatched these, i ooooh'd and ahhhh'd  with excitement.  The pigmentation is real and i swear, as i swiped each shade on my arm i felt as though i was in for a little surprised.  Certain shades are predictable but others have a little something extra that happens when you swatch!  Seriously, these are very pretty palettes!

The packaging is cardboard and each of these palettes includes a blend of eight mattes and shimmers. There are three palettes, Bailout (purple hues), Shortcut (stunning burgundy/wine shades), and Detour (blue hues).  I will show you each in more depth.

I love the neutrals in this palette because they make the purple shade a lot more wearable!  Vice is a beautiful shade and I'm typically not a fan of purple!  Pickup is one of those shades that has such a gorgeous sheen and looks amazing on the inner corners of your eyes paired with Vice! 

This is perhaps the palette that most resonates with my typical, everyday go-to colors!  Zone broke slightly during shipping but it's still completely usable.  Shortcut is easily my favorite crease shade.  It's beautiful and universally flattering!  Zone is such a beautiful shimmer, it looks stunning swiped across the lids. I love to add Sin to the inner corner of my eyes. 

This palette is a GEM!  Oh my gosh i can't say that enough!  First, Plunge is a GORGEOUS shade!  I love to sweep it across the lid for a deep, smokey eye paired with a nude lip.  Confidential, Detour and Escape are beautiful crease shades that can be layered.  Remember i spoke of some shades being a bit of a surprise?  Well, at first glance, Switchback looks like a very light, almost white shimmery shade.  Well, it swatches SO beautifully with a hint of icy pale blue shimmer!  It's spectacular truly!  I also LOVE the matte white shade as a brow highlight!  Overall, obsessed with this beauty!

These palettes are relatively affordable at $25 each.  Anyone of these (or all) make a beautiful addition to anyone's makeup stash.  Well worth the money!  Be sure to also stock up on Urban Decay's All Nighter Setting Spray! If you haven't tried it yet, you must!  This has been my go-to for years!!!!!  I can't even count the number of bottles i have purchased because i adore it! You can purchase these beauties here and here

I have no doubt that you will love these as much as i do!  Thank you so much for reading! Xo, Carla - FMM
