Back in the early days when they were first around, Urban Decay used to come out with something called the Urban Decay Face Case. This was a great palette of eye shadows, blush and lip gloss all in one nifty little case. I miss those lovely palettes. I really wish they would come out with those again! Until they do though, I have something similar that I think you will like just as well!
Recently, Urban Decay came out with a nice new Limited Edition palette called Naked On The Run, which has six ALL-NEW shades of eye shadow (including an extra large dose of the perfect all-over shade, 5050), a bronzer, a blush, a new shade of 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil, a deluxe travel size sample of Perversion mascara and a new shade of full-size Naked Ultra Nourishing Lipgloss. The palette was made for travelling. It is small enough to take with you anywhere you need in a carry-on bag.
I got the Naked On The Run palette for Christmas, so I thought I would review it for you! I also got one for my 15 year old daughter, who is an Urban Decay fan too. I think that Urban Decay has cornered the market on nude shades of eye shadow. If there are any shades left to use, I don’t think they actually exist! UD has used them all…so, how is the Naked On The Run palette? Is it worth the $54.00 asking price? Let’s see!
The six shades of eye shadow are all variations on shades of brown. They are as follows: Dive (shimmery glittery rosy brown), Fix (light matte cool taupe), Resist (shimmery cool brown), Dare (dark matte dirty taupe), Stun (dark shimmery glitter cocoa brown) and 5050 (oh so slightly shimmery cream). The bronzer is a very light warm shade of bronze. The blush is a beautiful shade of bright cool pink. Perversion mascara is a regular deep black mascara. The 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil comes in Stag, a shade of deep cool slightly shimmery deep brown. Finally, Naked Lipgloss in Sesso is a neutral pink that has cool pink shimmer.

Above you can see the look I did using the Naked On The Run palette. I think it is a pretty good palette and is perfect for everyday use or especially good for travelling. The eye shadows are very soft and pigmented, like all of Urban Decay’s eye shadows are. They have a pigment infusion system that makes their eye shadows the top of line and some of the best in the business. They are not particularly creamy per se, but are more soft and do have some fallout. The key to avoid that is to load and tap the brush prior to application. The blush is a nice color but I think it is not one that everyone can wear. I think they should have gone with something more neutral in tone. This one is very bright pink and while pretty is not great for those that cannot wear cool shades. The bronzer is slightly orange-y and is light. I like that is a light shade, I am sick of bronzers that are too dark. The only complaint I have about the shade is that I think it would have been better had it been a little rosier instead. The 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Stag is a very nice shade and I think it works well with the shades they chose for the eye shadows. The Naked Lipgloss in Sesso is a gorgeous nude shade with just enough shimmer to make lips look super large and pouty! It is a neutral shade of pink with a beautiful shimmer to it. And finally, the Perversion mascara is a great mascara. I love it. I do however, think it works best when used with Subversion Mascara Primer.
I’ve always been a huge fan of Urban Decay. I think their products are top of the line and I definitely recommend purchasing this product. It will be a good addition to your collectibles, or to your makeup collection in general. Again, the Naked On The Run palette is $54.00 and can be purchased from www.urbandecay.com, www.sephora.com, www.ulta.com, www.beauty.com, the Urban Decay Flagship Store and department stores where Urban Decay is sold.
