It’s rare that an eyeshadow palette comes along and makes it way to the top of our favorites list, but the Urban Decay Born to Run Palette did just that. We were really excited about this palette the moment we saw it on trendmood. The only reason we tend not to use Urban Decay palettes is that their pan sizes are long and skinny which we don’t prefer, and they’re naked palettes have too many shimmer shades for our liking. However, the Born to Run palette is set up completely differently. It has large square pans, a good balance of mattes and shimmers, and a gigantic mirror.
The quality of these shades is on par with ABH in my opinion. The mattes blend effortlessly and the metallics glide on the lid so smoothly when you use your finger to apply them.
One of my favorite things about this palette is the unique color story. It’s rare to find both warm and cool shade in one palette and have it work, but this one does. I love that there are plenty of copper and gold shades to choose from, but I can also use greens and blues when I want to do a bold look. This palette forces me out of my comfort zone and for that reason, I love it.
I also want to mention that the packaging is high quality and sturdy. I’ve taken this on many trips and the shadows and mirror have remained intact.
Here are some swatches:
Overall this is hands down my favorite eyeshadow palette from 2018 and I can’t wait to keep using it for years to come!
