Urban Decay – Born to Run

Urban Decay - Born to Run Collection

So to start this review out, I bought these products with my own money. The opinions below are 100% my own, honest and truthful. Here is the full review of the Urban Decay – Born to Run Collection.

I just purchased the Beached Collection from Urban Decay, so I was very hesitant if I needed another.

I travel a lot and like taking 1 eye palette with me, so I need that palette so be versatile. My Morphe x Jaclyn Hill Palette has been my fave on the road for quite some time, as it has a great variety of colours.

Finally, I caved in and purchased the Urban Decay – Born to Run collection because my curiosity got the better of me.

The Eyeshadow Palette

The colours in this one were surprisingly pigmented, and blend very nicely.

It took me a little bit of time of staring at this palette to decide what I wanted to use.

There is a nice variety of colours, but my concern was the lack of what I would call “transition shades“. Finally I dug in and I really enjoyed a few of the looks that I came up with for it.

I still am undecided if it will replace my Morphe x Jaclyn Hill Palette, I might need a little bit more time before I make that decision.

Overall, I am quite impressed with the shade range, if you don’t like to venture into colour, go for one of the Naked Palettes, they are classics and will have you covered for whichever undertone that you prefer in them.

The Eyeliners

Urban Decay released 3 eyeliners in this palette: Double Life, Lucky and Overdrive.

To my disappointment, Double Life and Lucky are WAY too similar. Honestly, they should have went with a purple or red undertone eyeliner to make this collection more versatile.

Once these two are blended, you can’t really tell the difference.

Overdrive, is a nice green colour and I rarely opt for these shades in eyeliner, so I do enjoy it in my collection.

Overall, these are the same AWESOME formula that is in all of the Urban Decay 24/7 eyeliners. They are super creamy and pigmented.

The Lipsticks

There were 3 shades released in this collection: Marfa, 66 and Ready.

Overall, I love the formula of the entire Urban Decay Vice Lipstick range but I am quite disappointed that they didn’t venture out with a completely new colour or even formula here.

I understand that when you already have 100 shades to a lipstick collection, it is next to impossible to be able to invent something new. These were quite disappointing to me.

Marfa reminds me a lot of Venom, so if you already have Venom in your collection, don’t bother with Marfa. Also, its such a dark colour that I wouldn’t really want to wear this unless its for the evening.

66 reminds me a lot of Backtalk, but with a more blue undertone. I love Backtalk and Rush (which I swatched) and they are so similar to this that I won’t be keeping 66 in my collection.

Ready reminds me of a slightly darker version of Heat, which came out in the Naked Heat Palette. This is the only shade that I love and think is unique to the Vice line.

The Setting Spray

Same awesome All-Nighter Setting Spray, smaller travel sized bottle.

If you prefer smaller sized bottles, get it. I’d save your money and get the big bottle. You can always fill up little bottles that you buy for a dollar and save yourself some cash.

Overall, I love the palette. I’m disappointed in the other items in this collection.

What are your thoughts on the Urban Decay – Born to Run collection? Do you love them or hate them?
