Until now I really wasn’t wowed by the Urban Decay eyeshadow palettes, it seemed that something was always missing!
And then a few months ago they released their Born to Run Palette! At first, I wasn’t planning on getting but after a while I had an impulse buy moment and I must say that is a decision that I don’t regret!
Let’s start with the out packaging!
This is the outer box it is very sleek and luxurious looking. Black simple and in the middle with that Urban Decay logo which looks really sophisticated!
And this is what the back of the outer packaging is looking! It has a little information about the palette as well as all the shades and name of the shades that come inside of the palette!
I really like the design that they chose for this palette.
Now to the part which is the most important part of this whole thing.
First of all, can we take a moment to appreciate this packaging! It is so beautiful that I honestly have on my vanity as decoration (of course when I’m not using it 😉 )
The packaging is very sleek and it has all these different places from all over the world pictured all over the palette, very fitting with the name of the palette.
The palette is very slim and it has a nice weight to it, it feels like it’s something worth, At first glance, you’d think that it is made out of cardboard but no it’s plastic and it has a nice magnetic closure. That’s an A ++ for the packaging from me.
And this is what this beauty looks on the inside!
Before I start to blab on how much I’m impressed with the shades (spoiler alert) I’d like to point at that huge mirror inside of the palette! Which by the way is a great quality mirror and makes the palette even more travel-friendly!
Now to the most important thing that comes with this palette: the actual content!
First of all the shade selection is amazing you have everything if you’d take this palette with you while traveling you’d be got to go!
Second point, Great job Urban Decay, a perfect balance between matte and shimmery shades.
And aside from the shade selection the thing that impressed me the most is the quality of the shades! The formula on the shadows is beautiful they are pigmented but yet they blend like a dream it is almost like they would blend them selfs.
These are the swatches of the shades, and this picture doesn’t do them justice, unfortunately, the lighting wasn’t failing me and this is the best I could do!
These are dry finger swatches without any base underneath!
I will say it again I think that this palette is the best that Urban Decay has ever released.
From the packaging to the shade selection and the quality, and even the price is great you pay $49 for 21 eyeshadows. You just can’t beat it!
You could even save a little if you buy it now on Sephora with the sale they have going on right now when I’m posting this!
Have you guys tried this palette? What are your thoughts?
