Highway Queen

Urban Decay Highway Queen On the Run Mini Eyeshadow PaletteUrban Decay Highway Queen On the Run Mini Eyeshadow Palette ($25.00 for 0.16 oz.) is a new, limited edition orange-toned palette that features four more matte shades and four more shimmery shades.

The formula was drier and thinner for most shades, which resulted in so-so application and wear; it’s just not the type of formula that does well on its own–it needed a primer underneath to ensure even adhesion and longer wear. I find this formula to be drier and inferior to the one in the larger Born to Run palette in application and wear.

Coast

Coast is a pale yellow with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had good color coverage with a soft, silky texture that felt a little dusty in the pan but didn’t give me trouble with fallout. This shade stayed on well for seven hours before fading visibly.

Formula Overview

$19.00/0.05 oz. - $380.00 Per Ounce

The formula is typically described as "high-pigment" that "stays on your lids" and goes on "seamlessly." Their permanent range has a lot of fantastic shades in it, and many of them are pigmented, blendable, and long-wearing. Some of their matte are real workhorse kind of shades with soft, smooth, silky, and blendable textures, while their shimmers and pearly shades are very rich in payoff and apply beautifully to the lid. They wear between seven and nine hours on me, depending on the shade and finish.

Highway Queen

Highway Queen is a light-medium peach with moderate, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had nearly opaque pigmentation paired with a moderately powdery texture that had some fallout and sheered out a bit. I’d recommend wearing this with a primer underneath to improve adhesion, evenness of application, and wear as it only lasted decently for seven hours on me.

Shag Van

Shag Van is a medium-dark orange with strong, warm undertones and a mostly matte finish. There were barely-there flecks of micro-sparkle throughout but they did not translate to the lid at all. The texture felt smooth, substantial but not too powdery, so it applied well to bare skin and blended out nicely without losing its full color coverage (where I wanted it). It wore well for seven and a half hours on me before I noticed slight fading.

Backseat Babe

Backseat Babe is a light-medium orange with strong, warm undertones and a yellowy gold shimmer. It had opaque pigmentation with a soft, lightly dusty texture that was thinner and looked truer-to-pan with a dampened brush. It started to fade noticeably after seven hours of wear.

Pull Over!

Pull Over! is a rich, orange-copper with warm undertones and a metallic sheen. The consistency was soft, more loosely-pressed in the pan, but it applied evenly and blended out well on bare skin. It had opaque color payoff that wore nicely for seven and a half hours on me.

Rest Stop

Rest Stop is a light-medium pink-coral with moderate, warm undertones and warmer golden shimmer. The pigmentation was opaque, while the eyeshadow had a smooth, slightly firmer texture to it, so it worked best with a heavier handed approach to pick up product evenly with a brush. It stayed on well for seven and a half hours on me before I noticed fading.

Roswell

Roswell is a medium, coppery brown with warm undertones and a frosted finish. It had semi-opaque color coverage that applied a bit unevenly to my bare lid, which was likely due to the thinner texture and some powderiness to it. This shade lasted well for seven hours before fading noticeably.

This particular palette doesn’t appeal to me as I have so many of these shades. I assume most of us do since they have been popular for quite some time. If I were going to pick up either it would be the other one but luckily, I am not tempted by either unless they go on sale.

A fairly unimpressive little palette with just about monochrome orangey shades. Not a lot of depth here and the quality is lacking.
Thank you Christine for the review.

These colors are very pretty. I am more inclined to buy these than Colour Pop’s palettes that have pressed glitter. If I can control myself, I will wait to purchase these until after the holidays.

This is the kind of palette which readers may find has sufficient variation. Or be more critical, seeing the absence of true deepening or browbone shade. Those ‘observing’ the look will see it as totally one note, and that all looks are virtually the same. Shag van? Backseat Babe? Enough with that, UD.

Urban Decay made a palette tailored for me without realizing it! I’m a transportation planner whose nickname is Mrs. MD Roads because I’m a transportation geek and my husband is the webmaster of mdroads.com, a website all about the history of roads here in Maryland. My favorite color is also orange! I actually reached out to Urban Decay about it on instagram and they replied “we got you!”

The only thing missing from this palette is a darker brown shade for the outer crease, so I’d need to get a single for my makeup bag for the palette to be truly on-the-go. But it’s so perfect for me!

I love the look you put together with it, Christine, and think I’m going to recreate it on a regular basis, and change up the lower lash line colors and outer crease color.
