Born To Run
When this Born To Run palette was launched, I honestly felt like Urban Decay has designed it with myself in mind. This being because as most of you know, I’m obsessed with traveling. With 21 shades that can range from a neutral daytime look to one with a serious pop of colour or a metallic jazz. It is the most ideal travel companion. Even the large mirror is perfect for when all the girls are trying to get ready in the hotel room and there is one tiny mirror available.
21 STUNNING SHADES ALL IN ONE PALETTE
From neutral shades to brighter colours for when you’re feeling brave or sophisticated jewel tones for glamorous nights out, Urban Decay has designed this palette to be universally flattering for any skin tone and any lifestyle. As always, I’m a huge fan of how pigmented the shades all are. As much as I love mattes for everyday looks, this palette is perfectly balanced with mattes and shimmers.

STRANDED (pale rose gold with tonal micro-shimmer)
BLAZE (light metallic peach with pink shift)
WEEKENDER (light neutral beige matte)
STILL SHOT (bright peach)
RIFF (brown-nude matte with floating micro-sparkle)
GOOD AS GONE (deep brown with iridescent micro-shimmer)
HELL RIDE (deep fuchsia matte)
BAJA (burnt orange matte)
ACCELERATE (reddish copper metallic)
GUILT TRIP (smoky purple shimmer)
IGNITE (rose gold metallic)

WANDERLUST (forest green with gold micro-shimmer)

DRIFT (charcoal satin with tonal micro-sparkle)

The Look I Created
For my look, I used Blaze as my base shade. I then used Wildheart in the outer corners of my eyes and dusted Double Life over it. I used Stranded on my upper lash line and Breakaway as my highlight shade. On my lower lash line, I used Big Sky.
The shades are all as pigmented as you’d expect from Urban Decay – I mean, what’s new?
Thoughts on This Palette
One of the top things I wanted to let you know about this palette, is its value for money! Most of Urban Decay’s palettes have 12 shades and retail for R850.00. This palette, however, is 21 shades and retails for R800.00. As I mentioned, it has a huge mirror which is great for when you are on the run but it is quite a heavy palette because of this fact.
