Hey everybody. So I recently got the Urban decay ‘On the Run’ Palette and I thought I would let you know what I think of it and is it really all its made out to be. This palette is described as ‘The ultimate travel kit for Naked Junkies’ It comes with everything you need to create that ‘naked’ look.
Firstly the packaging is really convenient. It’s in a highly metalized rose gold case. Who doesn’t love Rose gold? There is a big mirror on the lid of the palette once you open it which is so handy. It is a perfect size for your handbag. What’s included? Well you get five new shades of eye shadow. A gorgeous bronzer, highlighter and blusher. Also included is a travel size 24/7 glide on eye pencil, a travel size ‘Perversion’ mascara (I have used this mascara every day since getting it – LOVE!) and a full size Naked Ultra Nourishing lip-gloss.
Every single one of the eye shadows and blushers are all new shades I love the more brown tone eye shadows that are in this palette more so than the two pink tone/light ones. I really love the bronzer that is included. It is so pigmented. A really lovely shade for contouring. The pink blusher is very pink so be careful when applying it if you get the chance to get this palette.What I like about the five shadows in the palette, which are Dive (metallic rose w/golden micro-shimmer), Fix (soft taupe matte), Resist (medium metallic taupe), Dare (medium brown matte), Stun (metallic bronze w/light gold micro-shimmer), they all allow you to achieve a day look, and then there are colours there for you to change it up and create that evening look.
I’ve done a little swatch of the eyeshadows. All the names are listen below 😍 (I’m so pale. So my apologies lol)
Highlighters are an essential product in your make up bag recently and The Naked On The Run Palette includes a really pretty highlighter. Sometimes I find that a highlighter can make your make up look quite ‘Cakey’ but this is not the case with the 50/50 highlighter. The Mascara ‘Perversion’ is gorgeous. It doesn’t make your eyelashes clumpy or anything. It is really brilliant. The eyeliner is a 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in the colour Stag. This isn’t a black eyeliner but it still comes out quite dark, to be honest I didn’t even realise it wasn’t black at first. It is a deep brown satin shade. The Lip-gloss in the palette is a berry tone. I’d say the more you layer it on the deeper colour it will be. I normally put it over my Mac ‘Crème de nude’ lipstick and it really gives it a lovely gloss. 10/10!
This palette is perfect to have in your bag if you’re trying to minimize the amount of products you pack in that bag you bring to work/friends house before heading out. Even if you don’t want to bring the whole palette with you, the travel size mascara and eyeliner are perfect. Who else has tried to stuff their clutch bag on a night out full of make up and it just won’t fit? I always end up bringing nothing and regret it during the night when my eyeliner needs topping up.
One youtuber who’s video’s I have only recently start watching ‘BatalashBeauty’ did a make up tutorial using this gorgeous palette and her make up turned out lovely. Take a look below. It might help you decide if you like it or not. You can subscribe to her channel for more tutorials Here.
Overall I would really recommend this palette if you’re looking for something to always have with you ‘on the run’. Having a palette like this makes life so much easier. It is available here to buy in Debenhams stores for €44 which I think is a good price for the amount of good quality products you are getting. Just click here to go directly to the site. Ladies as it is a Limited Edition, They won’t be around for ever so If you are thinking of getting one do it before they go.
What are your thoughts on this gorgeous product? Have you got one, how do you like it? Let me know.
Thanks for reading,
Love Shannagh X
