Urban Decay Born To Run Collection Review & Swatches

Urban Decay Born To Run Collection is your most wanted makeup for wherever life takes you. Whether you're a total road warrior, a weekend escapist or a staycationer—this collection has everything you need when you're Born To Run! I was not expecting any more Summer releases from Urban Decay after Beached so this was an awesome surprise! Born To Run takes us through Summer travel season, around the world, and back home with some Fall makeup vibes. Let's have a look!

First up: the all-in-one Born To Run Eyeshadow Palette ($49) lets you create nude makeup looks, add in pops of color and play with brights, no matter where you're going. With an assortment featuring 21 of-the-moment eyeshadow shades, you've got every possible eye look covered in one sleek makeup kit.

Can we talk about this gorgeous Summer packaging? The photography or UD Employee's trips is such a cool tribute and it's total Vacation worthy. This also isn't a cardboard palette. The palette is a hard plastic that is very sturdy with a spacious mirror. I will say I miss the added eyeshadow brush and eyeliner and I think for a travel palette they should have included it.

When it’s time to grab your carry-on and dash off to the next big adventure, you’ll want to pack light. Enter Born To Run, an all-in-one eyeshadow palette that has everything you need to create neutral looks, add in pops of color and play with brights, no matter where you’re going. With 21 of-the-moment shades—from jewel tones and modern neutrals to more colorful shadows—you’ve got every possible eye look covered in one sleek kit. Made from our mind-blowing formula that gives each shade its velvety texture, rich color and blendability, Born To Run’s Eyeshadow shades hold tightly onto pigment that stays put.

Breakaway (warm ivory shimmer), 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), Smog (deep coppery bronze shimmer), Wanderlust (forest green with gold micro-shimmer)
 Wildheart (bright fuchsia), Punk (red-brown matte), Double Life (metallic rust), Jet (black with deep shimmering purple shift), Drift (charcoal satin with tonal micro-sparkle), Radio (deep emerald satin), Big Sky (frosted green shimmer with iridescent micro-sparkle)

When I first saw the promo images for Born To Run I wasn't WOW'd. I am not one for colorful eyeshadow these days and the shades just didn't seem to go together very well. That all changed once I got in to this palette! The quality is exactly what we expect from UD. Rich, bold, pigmented eyeshadows that blend effortlessly. Upon first glance this palette looks warm and colorful, and it is, but the shades are surpisingly wearable and a more sophisticated take on color. It has a late Summer/Early Fall essence about it and many of these shades will take you straight in to Autumn.

My favorites were of course the top 4 peachy neutrals. Followed by the shimmering pairing of six in the bottom right hand corner. Smog is an OG from the Naked days that I couldn't live with out. I really loved Drift, Radio, Wanderlust, and Big Sky. They have a dusky smokiness to them that is beautiful. There are 16 all new shades in here which I appreciate. I did notice quite a few shades resembled the BEACHED Palette. This makes sense as it was also a Summer release. I would spend the few extra dollars for Born to Run for the extra color choices.

The perfect complement to the Born On The Run Eyeshadow Palette, these three brand-new, limited-edition shades of Vice Lipstick pair with anything from neutral to smoky and bright to sultry eye looks. With three new lip colors (a bright rose sparkle, a rich mauve-nude and a dark berry).

Born To Run Vice Lipsticks are designed to complement your everyday (and even the not-so-everyday) looks. Just one swipe provides an unbelievable laydown of color—with soft and supple texture, rich and even coverage, and long-lasting pigment.

These are not your typical Summer shades and I kind of love that. Though, I do wish they would give us coral lovers something too every once and awhile! Ready? was my favorite. The rose with mettalic pink shimmer glitters with out being gritty. I love how this looks under the cushion lipglosses for a super sparkly look! 66, a deep mauve nude and Marfa a rich egglplant berry will be fantastic come Fall.

Keep the adventurous vibes going with fun-loving shades of Urban Decay's 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil. From a reddish-brown and a dark copper to a deep green metallic, these versatile shades will pair perfectly with any bold eye look you can dream up.The best Eye Pencil ever, ever, ever! Never before has a pencil this creamy and brilliant been waterproof, too. Velvety-soft, this never-before-seen formula stays soft and creamy for blending (about 30 seconds), then dries down to a long-lasting finish that WILL NOT budge.

For pencil liner I buy nothing but the 24/7 Liners. There isn't anything better. The Born To Run Collection features three 24/7 Liners in Doublelife (reddish-brown metallic), Lucky (mettalic burnt orange), and Overdrive (deep green metallic). Both DoubleLife and Lucky are softer alternatives to black liner. They are somehwat similar, with Lucky having more copper undertones. I don't think you need both. OverDrive is the standout. It is the most gorgeous deep forest emerald green.

When it’s time to grab your carry-on and dash off to the next big adventure, be sure to lock in your look using Urban Decay’s Born To Run Travel-Size All Nighter Makeup Setting Spray. Wanderlust leaves no time for touch-ups. Your endless adventures may be a blur, but your makeup shouldn’t be. Mist on this weightless spray to give your makeup serious staying power. All Nighter keeps makeup looking just-applied for up to 16 hours without melting, fading or settling into fine lines. This is my favorite makeup setting spray and I love that they made it travel size! Perfect for putting in to your carryon bag.

Born to Run is an awesome collection for wherever life takes you! While I wouldn't call this my all-in-one travel palette it has some beautiful shades to take you through Summer and in to Fall. You will want to RUN and get it!
