Urban Decay Naked On The Run £37
After lusting after this palette for quite some time, I finally decided to treat myself to it when Debenhams had a 30% off deal. This meant that I paid just over £25 but after receiving the palette and having a little play with some of the products enclosed within, I definitely would have happily paid the £37 price tag.
The Naked On The Run palette packs basically a whole make-up bag worth of products into the one compact and for that fact alone it makes it the perfect palette for someone looking to have all of their must-haves in the one place. Essentially it's all that you could ever need make-up wise, minus your base products and some brushes of course. I'll definitely be taking this with me the next time that I go on holiday along with a concealer and my Real Techniques Travel Essentials set. Is it bad that I'm already planning what I would like to take with me on holiday to Florida even though I don't go until the end of next year?
You get five brand new eye shadows, a 50/50 highlighter/eye shadow, a bronzer, a blush and then there are the travel sized products; a 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in the shade Stag and the Perversion Mascara, as well as a full size Naked Lipgloss in the shade Sesso. The five eyeshadow shades (Dive: a metallic shimmery rose gold, Fix: a soft matte taupe, Resist: a medium metallic taupe, Dare: a medium matte brown and Stun: a metallic shimmery bronze) and 50/50 which is technically another eyeshadow/highlighting product are what I have come to expect from Urban Decay shadows; fantastic quality. If you've ever tried one of their shadows then you will know exactly how pigmented, soft and blendable their shades are and these are no different. The five, or six if you count 50/50, eye shadow shades are brand new shades to the Urban Decay collection as is the Naked Lipgloss in the shade Sesso. And then you've got a beautiful medium bronze matte bronzer (the fact that it's matte makes it a welcome addition to my current collection) and a vibrant pink blush with just that little hint of shimmer. On top of that, I can now finally try two products from Urban Decay that I've wanted to put to the test for a while now; the 24/7 Eye Pencil and the Perversion Mascara. This all makes me a very happy bunny. You couldn't expect me to post this on Easter Sunday and not make at least some kind of Easter related reference, now could you? Hehe.
And let me just take a moment to truly appreciate the design and packaging of this palette. How absolutely stunning is it? The palette casing seems incredibly durable which is a definite bonus for a product like this and the tortoiseshell design is unlike anything that I've ever seen when it comes to make-up packaging. It's about the same size as a CD case (remember CD cases? Hehe) but obviously it's substantially thicker than a traditional CD case.
What do you think of the Naked On The Run palette? Would you like me to review some of the products in this palette (ie. the Naked Lipgloss, the eye shadows, the 24/7 liner, etc.)? And if so, which would you like me to review, in full, first?
What's your favourite Urban Decay product? Or do you have one on your wishlist at the moment that you can't wait to purchase?
