Urban Decay Born To Run Eye Shadow Palette Review

Hey Beauties!

So stoked about getting my hands on this palette! It’s definitely been the year of eye shadow palettes in my opinion and my collection of eye shadows has expanded to a point where I probably own almost zero single eye shadows.

I’ve been hearing so much about this palette and decided to purchase this instead of the Naked Cherry palette.

Born To Run Eyeshadow Palette offers endless escapes in one travel-ready package. With 21 shades and a full-size mirror, it lets you choose your own adventure.

If you find yourself packing multiple kits for one look, our Born To Run Eyeshadow Palette is your globe-trotting go-to.

When it’s time to grab your carry-on and dash off to the next big adventure, you’ll want to pack light. Enter Born To Run, an all-in-one eyeshadow palette that has everything you need to create neutral looks, add in pops of color and play with brights, no matter where you’re going. With 21 of-the-moment shades—from jewel tones and modern neutrals to more colorful shadows—you’ve got every possible eye look covered in one sleek kit. Made from our mind-blowing formula that gives each shade its velvety texture, rich color and blendability, Born To Run’s Eyeshadow shades hold tightly onto pigment that stays put.

Got a conference in Dallas where you need to look like a boss? Create subtle definition with creamy, light neutrals like Breakaway and Weekender en route (using the palette’s full-size mirror, of course). Or, blend Baja, a burnt orange matte, into the lids and smudge Accelerate, a reddish copper metallic, into the crease for a sunset-hued smoky eye that mirrors the view on your road trip through the Mojave Desert. If you’re dancing until daybreak in Prague, put a twist on the traditional cat-eye look and smudge Guilt Trip, a smoky purple shimmer, into the lash line to create an imperfect wing.

Can’t decide which awe-inspiring shade to swipe on next? No matter which shades you try, we designed them all to be universally flattering for any skin tone and any lifestyle. Whether you’re a total road warrior, a weekend escapist or a staycationer—this one palette has everything you need when you’re Born To Run.

My Experience:

The packaging and theme is so unique and I absolutely love the layout, thought and concept behind this palette. They have definitely stepped outside the box and I appreciate all the details behind the names and story. It contains a decent size mirror and the overall quality of the palette is on point.

The matte and shimmer shades are soft, blend-able and highly pigmented. The shades blend very well into each other and it’s definitely an all in one palette that can be used solo and very good and sturdy for traveling as the theme/ reason for it suggests.


This is the look I created using almost every shade in this versatile palette:



I would definitely recommend this palette as the quality, standard and performance is exactly what you need to achieve stunning looks from.


I purchased this from the Urban Decay Store in the Waterfront for R800.



Have you tried this palette before? What are your thoughts?




Thanks for stopping by 😊
