Summer gives us a lot to look forward to: vacations, road trips, picnics AND an endless amount of new makeup releases! Urban Decay just released their latest must-haves for Summer 2018 – the Born To Run Collection.
A colorful makeup range inspired by worldly travels, this collection features a 21 shade universally flattering eyeshadow palette, 3 new shades of the Vice Lipsticks & 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencils and a travel size cult-classic All-Nighter Setting Spray.
::: Born To Run Eyeshadow Palette [$49] ::: If you’re a long time fan of the OG Naked palettes, you’ll be ecstatic to see that this also contains a handful of everyday neutrals in addition to tons of jewel-toned pops of color to totally amp things up. This palette combines your favorite neutrals with bold, eye-popping shades to take all of your makeup looks to the next level. With a combination of 21 richly pigmented colors in matte, satin, metallic and shimmer finishes this palette contains everything you need and then some to create a beautiful, summery look. As expected, the quality is what we’ve come to know and love from Urban Decay, the shadows are all very creamy, pigmented, soft and blendable. The color selection is really unique and fun and like nothing else currently on the market. There are tons of all neutral palettes, and then there are palettes containing all bright shades, this combined both in the most versatile, wearable way. For me, it contains just enough neutral & matte shades to work within my comfort zone. Standout Shades: Wildheart, Guilt Trip, Drift, Smog & Big Sky. As with every shimmer shade in every palette, I prefer to apply them directly with my fingers for the best color payoff.

::: Born To Run Vice Lipsticks [$18] ::: Housed in limited edition, travel-inspired packaging, the Vice Lipsticks are available in three all new shades. I love the creamy consistency and texture of the this formula, they apply really easily and offer full coverage and don’t require a lipliner which is a huge plus for me. These new shades aren’t typically ones I’d reach for, so they’re unlike anything else I have in my lipstick drawer. My favorite is 66, a creamy deep nude/mauve. Ready is a semi-sheer rosy/coral infused with subtle pink & gold glitter. Marfa is a solid NO for me – way out of my comfort zone, but it’s a bold and vampy dark plum if thats your thing.
::: Born To Run Travel Size All Nighter Spray [$15] ::: If you’ve followed my blog for a while, you already know the UD All-Nighter Setting Spray is my absolute favorite and the ONLY setting spray I’ve used over & over for the last few years. Ironically, this was the first setting spray I ever used on my wedding day six years ago, so not only is it somewhat sentimental to me, but it’s the only one that actually locks my makeup into place and keeps it looking fresh & vibrant. With this, you don’t have to worry about your makeup melting, fading or settling into fine lines. It’s oil-free and paraben-free and suitable for all skin types. It features Temperature Control Technology that was designed to lower the temperature of your makeup to keep everything in place even on the hottest of days. The end result is smoother looking skin and makeup that will last through anything. And in TSA approved, travel size packaging, I won’t ever take a trip without this!
::: 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil [$20-$21] ::: The perfect compliment to the new Born to Run Palette are these eye pencils. Like the name says, these really do glide on without tugging or pulling your skin. These make a great base under eyeshadow to intensify color payoff or a great option to smudge out along the lash line for a one-step smokey eye. Shades: Lucky – dark metallic copper, Overdrive – deep green metallic, Double Life – reddish brown metallic.
