Urban decay - Naked - On the run REVIEW



I spotted urban decay's latest launch just before Christmas, there were a lot of posts popping up on my bloglovin', and i was seeing this little box of wonder everywhere. 
After having the urban decay's naked 2 pallet for my birthday, i fell in love with the brand very quickly and when i spotted it in my local Debenhams, pride of place easily spotted when you walked though the doors, i fell in love, and i knew i just had to have it. So it turns out that on Christmas morning as well as a tone of other urban decay items me and my mum both got this wonderful thing. 

The thing i love about this palette is that their is basically a full face of makeup in once place (apart from base products). The palette includes 6 neutral eye shadows, bronzer, blush, eyeliner, mascara and lipgloss. I personally think the box is so cute, its a big box but is also light weight at the same time, and the magnetic seal makes it feel secure when its closed. I guess this is so when you do take it on the go, that it will stay shut in your handbag. Not to mention the actually casing.. Rose gold? just makes the packaging even better. Who doesn't love rose gold?


The one thing i have always loved about urban decay is the shadows, simply because of how amazing pigmented they all are. I love to be able to blend my shadows well, and some eye shadows i have tried before simply haven't done that for me. Not to mention that these 6 shades are brand new, for this limited addition on the go palette, so they have never been put in any of the other naked palettes. There are 3 amazing shimmer shades, and 3 matte shades so you have everything you need to create a tone of different eye looks, both for day and night. You can also use them for your brows, i have, in fact when ever i use this i will always use 'fix' for my brows. My favorite shade is dixie (on the left) its a rose gold kind of shimmer and i just adore it. 

lets not forget about the bronzer and blush, i honestly love using bronzer for my contour and this one is my go to at the moment. The bronzer can look a bit orange, but i don't use a hell of a lot, and once blended out with the blush brush i have, i think it looks really nice. Also the same with the blush, when blended out it creates this beautiful soft pink flush.


Including: Glide on eye pencil, Gesso lip-gloss, perversion mascara, Dixie, fix, resist, dare, stun, bronzer, blush, 5050 eye shadow / highlighter 

Next is the 24/7 glide-on eye pencil in the shade 'stag', the perversion mascara and NAKED lipgloss which all slot perfectly into the top the the palette. Both the eye pencil and mascara are both generous travel sizes and the lip gloss is full size. I had never tried any of these products before, but i am pretty happy with them. The perversion mascara has been hyped about a hell of a lot, and i agree with most people when they say that it is such a nice mascara, my lashes look longer and thicker than ever. The naked lipgloss is also something i have heard a lot about but had not yet tried. The packaging is so pretty, the gloss is so lovely too, it not sticky like most and is a lovely pink shade.

Overall I am a huge fan of this palette and i am just in love with the colours. Yes i got this as a present, but you can get it online at feel unique for just £37 which i find is a really good deal, considering that just the lipgloss by its self is £14. Such a bargain!

What do you think? would you use it?
