Urban Decay Born To Run Palette Review

Hi all,

I know I am late to the game as far as reviewing this eyeshadow palette.  I finally broke down and bought this palette after it was highly recommended by a makeup artist that I know and love.  She was like I can’t believe that a makeup junkie like you don’t have this palette.  I told her that I remember when this palette was released but I guess the main reason why I never got it was because I could never find it in stock in the Ulta stores.  I usually like to go and check out palettes in person before I decide to drop any of my coins on it.  Luckily for me, this makeup artist had this palette and let me check it out.  I was very impressed with this palette and the shades looked amazing.  So when I went to my local Ulta store to purchase one, the palette was sold out again so I placed an online order for it.

It took only a few days to receive the palette and luckily for me I had an event to go to in which I wanted to use the palette for.  The colors blended so nicely and like always Urban Decay eyeshadow palettes never seem to disappoint.  Check out the palette details below.

Or, blend Baja, a burnt orange matte, into the lids and smudge Accelerate, a reddish copper metallic, into the crease for a sunset-hued smoky eye that mirrors the view on your road trip through the Mojave Desert. If you’re dancing until daybreak in Prague, put a twist on the traditional cat-eye look and smudge Guilt Trip, a smoky purple shimmer, into the lash line to create an imperfect wing.
