are you born to run?
Let’s talk a little about this gorgeous collection from Urban Decay – The Born to Run Collection! In this post, you can learn more about the products in this collection, application tips, swatches and see one of the makeup looks I’ve created with the items in this collection. Although I have received this care package courtesy from Urban Decay, I’ve been putting aside some of the items from previous PR packages so that I can host quite a few giveaways at the end of this year for you. ♥

born to run collection swatches
EYESHADOW PALETTE: The eyeshadows are creamy and I didn’t notice fall out each time I used the palette. All of the eyeshadows apply well alone with no eyeshadow base but if you would like your eyeshadows to pop and appear more intense, I would suggest using the Urban Decay Primer Potion before applying the eyeshadows. You can also sprits your brush with the Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray that is featured in this collection to help intensify these shadows as well. I personally don’t mind applying these shadows without a primer though.
VICE LIPSTICKS: Just like the other Urban Decay Vice Lipsticks, these are creamy and highly pigmented. These can be worn alone but I do suggest applying some kind of lip liner underneath to create some kind of dimension to your lips.
EYE PENCILS: If you haven’t tried these, let me just mention that these eyeliners are really WATERPROOF! Before I go on a tangent, let me just say that these eye liners are creamy to the touch and are filled with so much pigment that one swipe will give you the intensity that you need. These eyeliners are super blendable but just know that once it sets, IT SETS! What I wanted to mention earlier was that I use the Urban Decay Glide-On Eye Pencil in Zero and Perversion on all of my makeup clients and it lasts all day! These are a Pro Makeup Artist staple!
I LOVE IT because there is something for everyone! This collection has everything you will need for any makeup look and the palette literally has every shade you need to bring on a trip. As far as the eyeliners and vice lipsticks, if you don’t think any of the shades in this collection is something you are not interested in or simply think it will not work for you, there are a ton of other shades in both the vice lipsticks and the glide-on eye pencils for you to choose from from the Urban Decay permanent line of cosmetics.
If I had to recommend one item for you to pick up, it will definitely be the eyeshadow palette. Simply because it has 21 shades that are versatile and you can create a ton of looks. I love the huge mirror – it’ll be convenient when you take it with you anywhere! Also, the packaging is inspiring and can serve as a motivation to travel the world!
