Urban Decay Naked On the Run Palette: Review and Swatches
Boy do I have something good to share with you today. Urban Decay has very recently released a new limited edition Naked palette and this one includes not only gorgeous shadows but everything else you need to create the iconic "naked" look. To see some swatches and my review of the new Naked On the Run Palette ($64 CAD), click.......

Packaging:
Despite the name, the Naked On the Run palette is quite hefty in size. The products come in a sophisticated rose gold case. The lid features a beautiful tortoise rorschach design under a clear acrylic overlay.
Included in the palette are six brand new eyeshadows, a bronzer/blush duo, a full sized Naked Ultra Nourishing Lipgloss in "Sesso", a mini 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in "Stag", and a mini Perversion Mascara. Because the inclusion of the Naked gloss and mascara, the palette is quite thick. However, despite the bulky size, the packaging feels very luxurious and fashionable.

Formulation:
The palette includes six shadows, two mattes and four shimmer/metallics. The overall color scheme is soft and cool.
Dive: Metallic rose gold. Superb formulation, rich and pigmented.
Fix: Soft matte taupe, silky and creamy.
Resist: Taupe greige metallic, buttery and pigmented.
Dare: Light beige-y brown, fairly sheer but nice and soft.
Stun: Metallic version of "Dare", it has slightly larger specks of silvery sparkle.
50/50: Pale champagne shimmer. I initially thought this is a highlighter but Urban Decay describes as a jumbo-sized overall lid color.

From left to right: Bronzer, Blush, 50/50 Eyeshadow/highlight.
Bronzer: A beautiful soft tan with no shimmers. The formulation is super soft and creamy.
Blush: A gorgeous baby pink with very subtle shimmers that are hardly noticeable when applied on the cheeks. Great formulation, smooth, soft, and pigmented. Along with 50/50, the bronzer/blush duo seem very similar to the Naked Flush palettes but I couldn't find a match with any existing combinations so these are definitely new.

24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in "Stag":
I have long been a fan of the 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil line (Perversion is my favorite) so I am super excited to try "Stag". This is a soft black with subtle silver sparkles. The formulation is smooth and creamy, quite a nice alternative to the usual dark black.

Naked Ultra Nourishing Lipgloss in "Sesso":
Beautifully packaged in a shiny rose gold packaging, "Sesso" is a gorgeous deep rose with very subtle pink shimmers. I believe this is a new shade as the color is not listed on Sephora.ca. The formulation is very dreamy; it's shiny but not sticky, very nourishing and plumping.

Perversion Mascara:
A lengthening and volumizing mascara, Perversion promises "bigger, blacker, badder" lashes. As you all know, I have weak, straight, and sparse lashes that require something lightweight that does it all. This mascara is nice and volumizing but the formulation is a bit too heavy and thus makes my lashes droop after curling. Also I am all for waterproof mascaras as it rains a lot in Vancouver so this mascara is not my favorite from the palette.

Overall:
Such a gorgeous palette. The shadows are beautiful and the bronzer/blush duo has a superb formulation. The addition of the full-sized lipgloss is a nice bonus as well!
All in all, if you are a "naked" lover, this is a must-have!
