Review: Urban Decay On The Run Palette

Tuesday, February 2, 2016

I carry my world in my purse, and with half of the baggage exploding with makeup items, I'm always on the hunt for a versatile, all in one palette. Urban Decay On The Run palette is a perfect palette to throw in you bag, on the run.


  • The palette by itself is housed in a cardboard box with marbled print and the details of the palette imprinted on the backside of the box. 

  • Housed inside, is the rose-gold metal box with the same marbled top (very pretty) and embodied golden writing. 
  • On the back of the metal case, details of the palette is printed (similar to the cardboard).
  • Removable slots for eyeliner, lipgloss, and mascara.

  • Good size mirror that will come handy on the go.
  • The packaging is heavy and bulky, but very sturdy.


$54 (INR 3780)


1. 5 eye-shadows I 5*0.04 oz

The limited edition shadows are very buttery and easy to blend. The shadow quality is not quite on-par with when compared to UD 1 and UD 2. Minimum fallout, and OK-ayish pigmentation.

  • Dive: Pinky-gold with metallic sparkles
  • Fix: Brown with grey-undertone (Hardly shows up on my NC42 skin)
  • Resist: Golden taupe (Satin finish)
  • Dare: Matte warm brown (Perfect as a transition shade)
  • Stun: Brown with golden chunky specs and a touch of olive

2. Brow bone highlighter 5050 I 0.07 oz

The highlighter has a very subtle sheen to it and looks pretty when applied. I noticed major fall out with this one (I used my RT brush to pick up the product).

3. Blush and Bronzer duo I 0.3 oz

Blush looks screamingly pink in the pan, but if used light handedly, it can be Au-natural for dusky skin beauties. Slightly chalky and powdery.

Bronzer is not a good match for my NC42 skin, but may suite lighter skin tones.

4. Travel size Perversion Mascara I 4 ml

I've not used the mascara yet.

5. Full size Naked Lipgloss Sesso I 0.03 oz

Gloss is sheer, light pink, not a good choice for pigmented lips. If you have a matte lip, and want to add in a touch of gloss, you can use Sesso. It's not sticky like MAC lip glosses.

6. Travel size 24/7 glide on eyepencil Stag I  .03 oz

Eye pencil. It's a good quality pencil, and I guess brown balances out the eye shadows.

The eye shadow lacks a darker color that is a mandatory item to create a smokey eye. You can use this brown eye shadow to build up color on the outer corner.



All in all, this is a versatile palette, but would suit lighter to medium skin tone. If you ask me if it is a must have, eee....I would say, probably not! It's better to invest in UD 1 or UD 2.
