Urban Decay - Naked On The Run palette

I have wanted to buy an Urban Decay palette for so long now and I finally decided to take the leap to buy one with my Christmas money. It was a choice between Urban Decay Naked 2 and Naked On The Run, I went for Naked On The Run in the end as it is a limited edition set. Plus I also have two housemates with Naked 2 so I will buy it once university is over, what are housemates for after all. :)

This palette is awesome, it has mascara, eye liner, lipgloss, 6 eyeshadows, blusher and bronzer all for £37. It also is a travel size product that fits easily into your handbag, what more could a girl wish for... All your makeup in one palette, so you can top up throughout the whole day. This is the perfect way to try out Urban Decay makeup without having to buy one single item for full price.

Here are my thoughts on the products in the palette:

Perversion Mascara: blackest black 

I was a bit dubious about the mascara at first as I tend to have a preference towards plastic brushes but it is fantastic!! My lashes looked really long and the volume was impressive. The application of the mascara was really easy and it just glides on, no clumpiness whatsoever. It costs £17 as a standalone product, so it makes the set even more worthwhile.

24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil: Stag (deep brown satin)

I originally thought it was a black eye pencil but only on further inspection did I realise it was brown. Urban Decay did a great job putting in a brown eye pencil, it pairs so well with the brown eyeshadows. Amazing!!!

Naked Lipgloss: Sesso (rose w/pink shimmer)

The durability of this lipgloss is impressive, I wore it to town in the wind and rain, and it didn't start to fade until I ate lunch. Urban Decay has done a good job with their lipgloss and the shade is so pretty!! I love this pink shimmer colour and it is perfect for any occasion. The Naked Lipglosses normally cost £14, so am happy this was included and it is a full sized product, how good is that?!

Blush: vibrant pink w/light shimmer

Perfect pink blusher to create pretty rosy cheeks!! It's not too bright and it is just the right shade of pink.

Bronzer: medium bronze matte

It is really good that there is blush and bronzer in the set, I wish the bronzer was a lighter shade though as I am faired skin. I still love it just as much, it just means I have to apply it delicately and to be careful I don't put too much on.

Eyeshadows (Dive, Fix, Resist, Dare, Stun and 5050)

All 6 eyeshadows are such beautiful colours that you can mix and match, they stay on all day and I don't have to worry about my eyeshadow when I am out and about.

Dive (metallic rose w/golden micro-shimmer): I'm not a massive fan of rose eyeshadows but I do like this combo, the shimmer makes me like it even more!

Fix (soft taupe matte): It is a great matte shade that goes with all of the shimmer shades.

Resist (medium metallic taupe): This is my favourite shimmer shade in the set and absolutely adore it, I have even wore it during the day and it doesn't look over the top.

Dare (medium brown matte): The matte eyeshadows are of very good quality, this eyeshadow goes very well with Resist and Stun.

Stun (metallic bronze w/light gold micro-shimmer): The shimmer shades are highly pigmented and this one is no exception. It is the darkest shimmer colour so I will probably wear it just on nights out as I would be scared that it is too much glitter for daytime.

5050 (cool bisque satin): Nice light colour to use as a base or on it's own just to add a bit of colour to your eyelids.

Is it worth it? Yes, this is the best purchase I have made in ages and am sooooooo happy with it. Urban Decay sure have created an amazing product and this will definitely be travelling with me if I go on holiday this summer! It is a bargain and the content is worth more than what you pay for it. It is a beauty bloggers must have!! My first Urban Decay product and it is the first of many. :)
