Lexs’ Must Have: Urban Decay, Born to Run Palette

Honestly, Urban Decay can do no wrong. They keep releasing banger after banger and the new Born to Run palette gives me major feels. It satisfies all my creativity with its 21 shades and it was released so soon after the Heat palette that I can barely cope. It’s the ultimate travel companion and makes me want to jump on a flight straight away because I know I’ll have a shade for any occasion, zero boredom or shade fatigue…. sign me up.

Neutrals – check. Warmth – yes. Blues – hi! Berry and Jewel tones – yaaaaas. I really don’t know how the clever team at Urban Decay managed to pack so many amazing shades into one product but I won’t question it anymore, I am happy to accept it graciously!

Creamy powder formulas and crazy pigmented in the Born to Run palette means it’s really easy to buff out for a seamless application. Easily buildable to take you from day to night which means you can rock whatever look you want with minimal effort. I must admit for my eye shape that I’m really diggin’ on the mattes though. They are perfect for all my fellow hooded eye friends out there because they are a dream to place in the hollow of the eye to create the illusion of depth. If you’re looking for that spotlight eye that’s very on trend RN, take the metallic hues for a whirl giving you glimmering texture ASAP.
