Urban Decay Naked On The Run Palette

Urban Decay Naked On The Run
Last week I was just scrolling through my Facebook feed when I noticed that Debenhams Beauty Club had posted about the Urban Decay Naked On The Run palette as it was 30% off (£25.90 instead of £37.00) for that day only! I quickly clicked off and said 'No, I still can't afford it.' It was then in my head all day, could I really justify it? That evening, I caved. In my basket it went, I was so desperate to get my hands on it I even paid £1 more on delivery to get it the next day. When it arrived, I was pretty excited. This was definitely an impulse buy.

This palette is amazing - it has basically everything you need for while 'on the run' hence the name. It's the perfect travel companion with a decent sized mirror included too. It's not too heavy and not too bulky, so it's perfect for just popping in your handbag. The palette contains a Perversion Mascara, 24/7 Glide on Pencil in Stag, Naked Lipgloss in Sesso, 6 eyeshadows (three matte, three shimmer), a bronzer and a blusher. I've heard many good things about the Perversion Mascara and the 24/7 Glide on Pencils and obviously being the proud owner of the Naked 3 Palette, I adore Urban Decays eyeshadows.

The Urban Decay Perversion Mascara is said to give you 'bigger, blacker, badder' lashes. I haven't tried it out yet as I have so many full size and sample mascaras lying around, but I will be giving it a whirl soon. Next is the 24/7 Glide on Eye Pencil in Stag, which is a deep brown shade. It is exclusive to the Naked On The Run palette but I'd imagine the shade Whisky would be quite similar. This eyeliner is really creamy and pigmented and glides on really easily. I'll be wearing this a lot! The Naked Lipgloss in Sesso is also a Naked On The Run exclusive. The shade Sesso is a rosy pink and when on the lips is definitely a 'your lips but better' colour. It is however quite sticky which put me off instantly, nothing worse than sticky lipgloss! It does give a nice plumping effect to the lips but I don't think I will be wearing this much.

There are six eyeshadows in this palette, yep that one next to the blush/bronzer is actually an eyeshadow. I did think it was a highlighter at first but it isn't, however I'm sure you could also use it as one. The shades are all exclusive to this palette so you won't find them in any of the Naked palettes or Urban Decays single eyeshadows, these shades are all very 'me' and I will probably get usage out of all of them as with the Naked 3 palette there are few shades I will probably never use. These eyeshadows are highly pigmented, I love that theres a mix of matte and shimmer shades. You can create a whole number of looks with these - day and night.

Last but not least, the blush and bronzer. The shades look a little daunting in pictures but in real life and when swatched/applied they are actually really nice. The blush is a vibrant pink and has slight shimmer but not too much and the bronzer is a medium bronze matte.

I'm so glad I gave in and bought this palette, as I have three weekends away from home coming up soon this will come in handy but knowing me I'll probably still bring loads of other make up bits with me! Although I didn't pay full price for this, I would say it is 100% worth it's £37.00 price tag when you think of what is included, a full size Perversion Mascara and 24/7 Glide on Pencil would cost you around £33.00 if bought together!
