Honestly, the new collection from Urban Decay On the Run deeply impressed me from the moment I saw it on the official site. I couldn't decide on which palette to buy until finally stopping on this one- BAILOUT, which is full of brown-beige shades with lilac accents.
In my book, this palette is perfect for brown and green eyes. Mine are hybrids - green with yellow spots around pupils. 100% my shades.
The design is flawless as always.
Urban and gothic, adorned with their classy purple shades.
The back of the palette shows the shades inside, which are deceitful and don’t look true to life.
At first, the cover then the palette itself.
It’s made of thick cardboard and closes with magnets.
Inside there are refills and a mirror, which is great and not defacing.
So, 8 refills, 3 are mattes, 2 shimmering and 3 satins. Usually, I don’t welcome shimmering shades in my makeup and hardly ever use them but in this palette, they are so delicate that they don’t appear vulgar or anything. I always reach for them.
The shades match my complexion. They are mostly warm-toned and super gentle.Skimp
- satin fair shade. It’s very delicate.
And my skin appears as though lit from within. I can’t say that it’s warm or cool for sure but it’s absolutely neutral. In the photos, it appears more cool-toned but this is all due to the lights. It’s good for a brow bone and inner corners of the eyes.
Bailout - powder light peachy color. At first, it might appear too yellow but on the skin, it’s more peach and gentle. Warm and matte. No chunky at all.
Faith - warm taupe shade. Matte and powder-like. It’s nice for nude makeup and the crease.
Rebound - dark coffee matte hue. It’s warm and nicely pigmented for such a dark color.
It might be too much for daytime makeup but I love when I can easily transform my daytime makeup into an evening look with it.
Chopper - pink copper really beautiful shimmering shade. It’s infused with golden flecks, which are rare yet still interesting.
It blends out into a pink shade. It’s good to wear alone as well as to pair with other fair shades.
Double up - coffee shade with a vinous hint. It’s barely satin, though I can see that light golden sheen.
Intensity-wise, it looks like the Rebound color, though satin.
Pickup - dust of fairies. I can’t even describe it differently. In the picture, it somehow appears more silver, while in life it’s a very complicated violet-pink color with silver sparkle. It’s more shimmering rather than satin.
I tried my best but I still couldn’t catch that play of colors. The shade is cold but the sparkle is pink and warm. It’s so nice to pair with the next color.
Vice - magnificent deep blue shade. It isn’t cool, it’s warmer. There’s a slight hint of pink in there. It’s absolutely unique and I’ve never seen anything like it before.
All the shades blend out with ease. You won’t have any problems to blend each of them into a sheer tone. They are super soft and nice to pick up with a brush. There’s no dusting or fallout under my eyes.
Oddly enough, the shimmering and matte shades look almost the same on my eyes. The pigmentation, as well as blending, is fabulous.
Honestly, it’s a rare occasion to meet such a palette. Usually, matte shades are thicker and finer milled, while shimmers are too chunky.
I use them over the UD primer and with it on they never lose their pigments or intensity. I don’t wear them without a primer because my eyes are hooded and oily so I’m afraid of spoiling my makeup.
Easy daytime makeup, which will be apt for any lip color, gentle nude as well as saturated.
Fairy lilac makeup. It goes well with red hair and fair complexion.
More evening-like version.
Price: $25, which means $3-something per refill. That’s cool because the quality is perfection! The MAC singles cost much more and they aren’t as dope as these ones.
Recommend? Definitely! To tell you the truth, I’ve never had such ideal eyeshadows before. I’m completely in love!
