Urban Decay Naked On the Run Palette
Urban Decay Naked On the Run Palette

Urban Decay Naked On the Run Palette ($54.00 for 0.73 oz.) includes six eyeshadows, blush, bronzer, lip gloss, eyeliner, and mascara. Five eyeshadows are 0.04 oz., and then one is a larger-sized eyeshadow at 0.07 oz. The gloss is full-sized, while the eyeliner is 0.03 oz. (compared to 0.04 oz. for full-sized). The mascara is travel-sized (which may make replacement difficult–UD has a travel-sized Supercurl, though I’m not sure it will fit). In order to accommodate for the depth of the gloss, the palette is quite thick, and overall, I wish it was lighter-weight. I also would have rather Urban Decay had included a double ended brush or two, rather than the gloss, because I think having brushes inside the palette protects them particularly well, whereas many of us have lip colors stashed in our makeup bags. The quality is good for the most part with the highlighter eyeshadow being quite powdery. I do think the color combination runs rather dark and feel like more contrasting shades would have provided for a more versatile palette.

Stag is a dark brown with subtle, cool undertones and a satin finish. It had so-so pigmentation in a single stroke and was buildable to mostly opaque color coverage. It wore well for eight and a half hours on my lower lash line. See swatches of dupes / view dupes on The Dupe List.

Sesso is a warm-toned, medium-dark pink-plum with lighter pink pearl. It had semi-sheer color coverage, was mostly non-stickyand comfortable to wear for the three hours it lasted on me. See swatches of dupes / view dupes on The Dupe List.

Dive is a sparkly, medium-dark, rosy copper with a frosted finish. It had nice pigmentation and went on fairly smoothly; it wasn’t overly glittery or sparkly, so it didn’t feel chunky to the touch. It had some fall out during application but minimal fall out during wear. See swatches of dupes / view dupes on The Dupe List.

Fix is a medium-dark, subtly warm-toned brown with a matte finish. The color payoff was good, and it was very blendable on the lid, though it was so soft that it was slightly powdery. It wore well for eight hours before fading. See swatches of dupes / view dupes on The Dupe List.

Resist is a warm, golden taupe with a metallic sheen. It had good pigmentation and the texture was soft and fairly smooth. It wore well for eight hours on me. See swatches of dupes / view dupes on The Dupe List.

Dare is a muted, medium-dark taupe brown with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. This was a really lovely shade to work with, as it was richly pigmented and had a soft, silky consistency that wasn’t powdery. It stayed on without fading for eight hours. See swatches of dupes / view dupes on The Dupe List.

Stun is a rich, chocoalte brown with warm, yellowish undertones and chunkier micro-glitter and sparkle. The texture was a little dry to the touch,. and there was fall out during application as well as during wear due to the amount of sparkle in this shade. It had great color payoff, though. See swatches of dupes / view dupes on The Dupe List.

5050 is a light, peachy-beige with warm undertones and a pearly sheen. It had good color payoff, but it was rather powdery to work with, so it was messy to use during application but also prone to fading faster than other shades. See swatches of dupes / view dupes on The Dupe List.

Naked on the Run Bronzer is a light-medium, yellow-toned brown with warm undertones and a matte finish. The powder was silky and soft, while the color payoff was true-to-pan, but it was easily blended on the skin for a lighter (or heavier) look, as desired. It wore well for seven and a half hours on me. See swatches of dupes / view dupes on The Dupe List.

Naked on the Run Blush is a brightened, light-medium pink with strong, blue undertones and a satin finish. It was slightly powdery to work with, but it was nicely pigmented and blendable on the skin. This shade wore well for eight hours on me. See swatches of dupes / view dupes on The Dupe List.

The quality is better in this one, IMO, but it is bulky to me, and I can’t imagine taking this in a bag. I’d rather grab a palette like Rollergirl and keep the rest in a makeup bag.

Hmm, I think this is nice to have, but probably not a must-have for me at $ 54. I guess you can take out the mascara or lipgloss and put in a few brushes. And since the lipgloss is full-size, you can swap out different colors. The shadows are nice, but a darker matte brown would’ve made this more versatile, and the blush is a waste, as it’s too orange for me. It would’ve been GREAT if they allowed you to pick the colors, so you can customize the kit. Does the palette weigh .073 oz, including the case and the makeup)?

It would be nice if they offered this palette for a range of skin tones. Like at least 3 different palettes with colors for specific skin tones (light, medium, deep), then urban decay could take my money.

It would always be ideal if brands would do things like that :/ Especially when they put things like blush, bronzer, etc. in a palette.

Really and truly, someone should just lock me away for my own protection. I have 15 dupes and possible dupes – yes, FIFTEEN – for Stun alone (I haven’t even checked the other shades yet) and even so, I really want this. The blush is gorgeous on you, Christine, and the bronzer looks lovely too (though it might be too warm for me, but even given your warmer complexion, it doesn’t look as warm or “orange” as it does in the pan). I don’t know if I’ll be able to resist this one, though I probably should (though the shade “Resist” is making it hard for me to resist and, oddly, that’s one for which I don’t have any really close dupes, according to the Dupe List).

No – I think it’s just evidence of my slightly out of control-ness and my unfortunate habit of frequently buying the same sort of colours over and over again…I wish I had more will-power and the common sense to be able to convince myself that “Hey, once it’s on the eye, there is absolutely NO discernible difference between that one you think you can’t live without and the 2 or 3 similar shades you already have!”

Depending on your skin tone, of course 🙂 I think it may be too orange on cooler or really fair skin, but it wasn’t orange on my skin tone!

That’s what I thought too, Christine – and it surprised me. I thought it would be a lot more orange (and therefore unwearable for me). If I get this palette, I probably won’t wear the bronzer, simply because I never wear bronzers (well, hardly ever) and if anything, I will use them as subtle eyeshadows for defining a crease or blending out darker shades.

This looks like a pretty nice set. I think a double ended brush would have been a great addition too. But it still seems like a convenient kit for travel

It’s pretty, but nothing I don’t already have covered. I guess it is good for a Naked or UD newcomer to get a taste of the products. And it looks a bit clunky and chunky. I think a double layer compact more like the Face Cases might have been better. Maybe if the powder products were on a thin hinged tray above the tubes?

I would totally get rid of the gloss and mascara! I’d also rather have a sort of tray than individual slots if the gloss and mascara stayed so that the space would be more functional after using the tubes up. They could use a heavy card insert to make them spaced out until you wanted the extra space or something.
It just seems oversized for something that is being promoted as travel size. It’s hard to tell over the internet, but it does not seem too far off the size of the 15th anniversary palette!

I wasn’t terribly excited about this when I saw the press release info, but after seeing the swatches, it looks like a nice palette. Dive is really pretty, and the both the blush and bronzer look lovely on you. I wish they hadn’t included the lip gloss and mascara though; it makes the packaging bulky and I don’t really care for sheer lip glosses.

On an unrelated note, does anyone know what’s happened to the 24/7 liquid liners? They were on sale on the website and aren’t currently available anywhere. Are they reformulating, or discontinuing?

The 24/7 Liquid Liners have been discontinued apart from the black shade Perversion, I haven’t heard anything about them reformulating but hopefully they will!

This is nice. I’m kinnnnda tempted. But I really want to see more of this illusive Vice Limited palette that supposed to be coming out. I hear it has a ton of repromotes, but I must see for myself.

It seems like everything here is pretty dupable. Nothing really gets me in the first glance. And as a basic, travel-friendly palette, I think it could be nice to have it but really not necessary. I can de-pot other products and get a Z-Palette with better choices from my own stash.

I don’t know, this palette just doesn’t appeal to me…at all. This looks like an oversized Face Case to me, and I think the shades aren’t that great…I wish they could have spent a little more time on it, and maybe it would appeal to me more. I’m kind of disappointed, I feel like the Naked line is being milked…darn. At least it’s consistent with Urban Decay’s quality.

I like the eyeshadow colors in this palette, but for a person like me all-in-one palettes like this one just don’t work because I could not possibly count the times when I dipped my bronzer brush into an eyeshadow by accident and ruined my entire look, all whilst being in a hurry..

I”m on the fence on this one(.mainly because of the orangish appearance of the bronzer..may work though. My skin tone is just a tad lighter than yours Christine, but carries that golden/yellow undertone. I think a more grayish for contour or less orange for overall bronzing would be better. The shadows..I would too have preferred a deeper matte dark brown/black included. I love Stag. But, I burn through UD pencils because they are so soft and LE me and it’s not replaceable. Almost need a small sharpener and brushes to make this an all in one. I also prefer a lipstick to gloss. I too would rather have the travel tools and separate lip items. It’s nice though for a quick daytime look or a gift for a beginner or a makeup minimalist. Nice for maybe a business trip. But, I don’t travel for work. If I go on vacay, there is going to be some night stuff going on in my bag. I think a bit high on the price for what it is IMO though.I’ll probably pass. I think I would rather try a Rouge G lipstick or TF blush..:)

The eyeshadows look beautiful, but the blush and the bronzer are just not very wearable colours for me. This palette will be a pass for me. Thank you for the review and swatches, it is incredibly helpful. And PS I just had to say – you have beautiful eyes, and incredibly well kept and perfectly groomed eyebrows!!

Thank you for reviewing this so quickly for us! I’m liking this more every time I see it. I’m so glad it’s good quality. The bronzer might be too yellow, but it’s definitely light enough, I think. I’d use it on my eyes, though. I’d probably take out the lipgloss and put some short handled brushes in its spot, if I used it for travel.

However I should say that I am pleased that the quality of the products are much better this time. I like the eye look you did Christine, but I love it when you use your teal eyeliner – that Gucci one is a knockout on you. I am going to get one for Christmas for myself after seeing how many eye looks it complements.

Which eyeshadows are you using in the last photos? I like this, but I’m not sure I could make very good eyeshadow looks with the colors they include. I don’t understand how they would work together; they all seem about the same tone with no real darker color.

All of them! Dive on the inner lid, Resist on the middle of the lid, Stun on the outer lid, Fix above the crease, Dare in the crease, 5050 to highlight 🙂

But I agree with you – I don’t think there is enough contrast. Fix and Dare are similar on – you can get Fix by just sheering out Dare.

I know UD likes to name their items after sex and drug paraphernalia but I have to ask…Is Sesso named for Ron Jeremy’s swingers club in Portland?

Yeah I think I’m going to pass. If they had put a revolution lipstick in here..maybe. but the eye shadows are pretty, just very dupeable. So I’ll be passing on this one!!

the packaging is awesome, they usually nail that! however I’m not prompted to buy as the contents are so easily duplicated in my stash.
a great gift for someone just getting into makeup perhaps.

Even if someone just had to have travel-suited Urban Decay, most would probably be better served with a Naked Basics palette and then whatever Flushed palette suited their skintone better. Those are nice, compact designs with decent sized mirrors.

is the mascara you used the one included in the palette? dive is gorgeous but i should probably resist since i don’t like to travel with nude palettes…

I think you’re right Christine, a brush would’ve been so much better, and lip products are not something most women have trouble travelling with, as you said, we usually have spare lip products with us at all times in our purses.

This is great and all… but I think it’s too big for travel! Like… I guess it’s compact… but if you think about individual pieces, say, one eyeshadow duo or trio, one cream blush, one double ended brush, one lipgloss, a tube of mascara and an eyeliner… would probably take up less space in a little bag than this boxy thing. The only way something like this would really tempt me is if all the products were cream and could be applied with fingers. Then I really wouldn’t need anything else (i.e. brushes) and it would be super quick to apply, wash your fingers and done.

You’ve created a delicate, refined “uptown” look with this palette, Christine. Very flattering and professional. It’s one of the prettiest looks I’ve seen here. It emphasizes your own beauty rather than the makeup. A keeper for sure.

Does anyone know if the shoes being sent to bloggers will be available to the public? I can’t find any information on them anywhere. I need them! They are purple Nikes with leopard shoe laces…I think.

Hmm, after reading your review, I am more on the fence. I don’t need the gloss, and the fallout you mention and the number of sparkly shades may not be what I’m after. I was looking for a good travel palette, but I think I’m better off with some of the Stila cardboard palettes that travel well for me, & I’ll bring my own mascara/lippie. $54 for not quite perfection is a little much. Also, I heard it goes on sale at 4am tomorrow is it? and that it’s a limited edition. I don’t need to compete to get it at that price.

Just ordered from the UD website! The colors are nothing unique but it’s exactly what I’m looking for. I couldn’t find a lot of palette options that had both eye and face makeup. Was considering that huge Tarte circular palette (can’t remember the name) but the reviews weren’t really good. Very convenient for travel as I don’t have to go through my whole stash to figure out what to take. Yay!

I love the fact that the eyeliner is a brown (not a black one, as we usually see)! I guess we rarely get the chance to see a brown eyeliner in this kind of palettes.

This palette would be anything but perfection if it wouldn’t be for the gloss and the matte eyeshadows that I don’t like.

I’m so glad the quality is here in this one 🙂 It’s not really a must-have for me (despite my love of UD), because I’d only really be in it for the eye products and the gloss, and it also runs a little warmer than I’m really into. And the packaging is bulky and really not to my taste in terms of pattern.

You know, that sounded awfully negative, but I don’t mean it to, LOL! The Resist and Dive eyeshadows are very pretty, and the liner and gloss look lovely for a subtle effect (it is a ‘naked’ palette, after all).

I was excited to see this palette – but disappointed! I own shades these colors and the bulkiness of the palette and lack of brushes – No Go for me!

You look great as always Christine! Which foundation/powder did you use? It looks fantastic!! Thank you for all the great reviews!

Thank you so much for reviewing this, I’m at least assured that the quality of the palette is good. This was *just* released in Singapore (like five and a half hours ago) and I snagged it at Sephora. I thought I’d be prepared for how large/thick this palette was, but it still surprised me. I think I’m still going to enjoy it though. I do have dupes for some of the browns but it’s always nice to have it one palette when I travel. (Dive though, is such a gorgeous unique shade and for some reason looks really different from Trick on my cool skintone.) I can’t wait to try the mascara and lipgloss too, and I’m glad that the blush and bronzer doesn’t look so frighteningly unwearable as it did in the promotional pictures.

Hmmm…so far UD has been pretty successful at convincing me to buy every eye palette with the word “Naked” stamped on the cover–but this time I may just exercise some restraint…
