One of my favorite eyeshadow palettes from 2018 is the Urban Decay Born to Run Palette (review). It had shades and textures that work for nearly everyone. Now, inspired by that runaway hit, Urban Decay has come out with three “On The Run” mini palettes, perfect for life on the road!
There are three On The Run palettes: Bailout (cocoa neutrals), Detour (sienna brown neutrals) and Shortcut (rose-toned neutrals). Each palette contains 8 eyeshadows in a variety of textures, along with accent shades to switch up your look. I’ve played with each of the palettes and my favorite so far has been Shortcut. Overall, I find the quality of pigmentation to be good, the eyeshadows blendable and no problems with fallout.
The Urban Decay On The Run palettes include:
Bailout: This palette has cocoa neutrals. Shades include Skimp (soft cream demi-matte), Bailout (neutral nude peach matte), Faith (medium warm brown nude matte), Rebound (rich chocolate brown demi-matte), Chopper (copper with silver micro glitter), Double Up (deep brown sparkle), Pickup (pale lavender with pink micro-sparkle transformer), Vice (deep eggplant shimmer).
Detour: This palette features sienna brown neutrals with teal accent shades. It reminds me of last year’s Beached palette (review). Shades include Dash (pale bronze-gold shift), Escape (warm peach matte), Detour (deep mustard matte), 16th Street (metallic bronze-gold), Confidential (deep terra-cotta matte), Switchback (holographic green shift transformer), Off The Grid (pink ivory matte), Plunge (deep metallic blue green).
Shortcut : This palette has blush-toned neutrals. Shades include Sin (pale nude shimmer), Laced (pinky-taupe matte), Shortcut (medium rose-pink matte), Afterhours (soft black satin with iridescent micro-sparkle), Back Alley (chocolate brown matte), Rendezvous (Bordeaux matte with blue-sparkle), Gash (metallic brick red), Zone (metallic pink-red with copper micro-sparkle transformer).
In short, for $25, I think you can’t go wrong with any or all of these palettes. I love the mini size, which is great for tucking in your travel bag, gym bag or purse. You can find the Urban Decay On The Run palettes in department stores now, including at Sephora, Ulta, Nordstrom and urbandecay.com. Will you be adding any beauties to your makeup bag?
