I am really impressed with the beautiful range of shades this palette has, from deep copper bronze to smokey browns, purples and cool blue-greens to add in pops of color!
The shades are all richly pigmented with a velvety soft texture that applies and blends out easily. The satin shimmers and metallics are all rich and silky smooth with very little fall out. Not only is the formula easy to work with but also packed with pigment!
The mattes are overall pretty good too, except for Weekender and Baja that have a little drier, almost chalky texture which isn’t as easy to work with as other shades in the palette.
My favorite shades in the Urban Decay Born to Run Eyeshadow Palette are the gorgeous shimmery greens Wanderlust and Big Sky and also the golden copper shade named Ignite (that I can see myself wearing all summer long!) I am also loving the warm neutrals especially Double Life and Smog that are great for summer and all year-round.
If you are a fan of rich jewel tones like me, this pretty palette is sure to please! Not to mention, it’s beautifully packaged in a sleek travel-ready case that’s perfect for wherever your go this summer and beyond! Here are the swatches:

The Born to Run Vice Lipsticks are available in three brand new (limited-edition) shades that are are designed to complement your everyday (and even not-so-everyday) looks. 66 is a rich mauve nude with matte finish, READY is a bright rose sparkle (metallic finish) and MARFA is a dark berry with pink micro-shimmer.
My favorite is the mauve shade 66. Not only is it a beautiful color but the formula is also super smooth, creamy and well-pigmented. Ready (shimmery rose) is also right up my alley…it’s such a lovely shade for summer! With its purple tones, Marfa is not really my type of color especially for the warmer months.
Here are the swatches from Urban Decay:
The Born to Run collection includes three new fun shades of Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in rich jewel tones that’ll amplify any look. LUCKY is a dark metallic copper, OVERDRIVE is a deep green metallic and DOUBLE LIFE is a reddish-brown metallic.
All the three shades are super pigmented, creamy and apply very smoothly. The formula is waterproof with a long-lasting finish that stays put. I am totally digging the teal green shade (Overdrive) that’s perfect for adding a pop of color to any look!
The Urban Decay Born to Run Collection also includes a limited edition travel-size All Nighter Makeup Setting Spray with a custom Born To Run deco. The formula is exactly the same as the original, but in a convenient travel size that can be easily tucked in your purse or carry-on.
This weightless spray gives your makeup serious staying power for up to 16 hours without melting, fading or settling into fine lines.
Overall, the Urban Decay Born to Run Collection gets a two thumbs up from me! The Born to Run eyeshadow palette features a beautiful selection of jewel-toned shades along with everyday neutrals and more colorful shadows to create multiple looks…for day and night!
With more than 20 richly pigmented shades packed into one palette, this is a truly versatile makeup kit (also travel-friendly!) with a great value. And with such a nice variety of colors, it will transition well from summer into the fall season. As for the Born to Run Vice lipsticks and 24/7 Glide-On eye pencils, they are rich and colorful with plenty of pigment and delightfully smooth textures.
