So I was apparently a very good girl this year and Santa brought me the Naked on the Run make up palette and I have to say it's been everything I dreamed it would be and more. This little beauty has been in my daily routine since I got it in my hands. The palette itself includes: - 5 eyeshadows - 1 eye liner - 1 lipgloss - 1 mascara - 1 blush - 1 bronzer - 1 highlighter It really is a great little workhorse to throw in your gym bag, travel bag or work bag. Be aware though this "little" palette is anything but little and is actually about the size of one of those day by day desk calendars (you know the ones, the square ones and you rip off each day?) So keep that in mind, it won't go into your clutch but will go into the purses of most ladies (myself a lover of oversized totes for years) just fine. 1. The Eyeshadows: The colors included are: (top to bottom) Dive (metallic rose/gold micro-shimmer), Fix (soft taupe matte), Resist (medium metallic taupe), Dare (medium brown matte), Stun (metallic bronze/light gold micro-shimmer). They are great nudes and you can use each one solo or together for a nice soft smokey eye look. I love them because the colors can be light enough for day but layered enough to give a nice evening look. The lasting power is also great on these little beauties no primer needed. They also didn't have that awful crease in the middle at the end of the day that happens frequently with other eyeshadow products 2. The Eyeliner: The eye liner included is the 24/7 Glide-On eye pencil in a dark brown. I have never used their eye pencil but have to say that I will never use another! These are amazing. Truly waterproof, even when I lined my inner line it didn't smudge. The true test for me was whether it would run when I lined my lower lash line and I am pleased to say that this lasted all day on me. 3. The Blush and Bronzer: The ones in the palette are a matte bronzer and a bright pink blush. I found the blush takes a very light hand to look natural. When I first tried this I used way too much and my cheek looked unnaturally bright pink. Like even after running 10 miles my face is not this pink. I had to wipe it off and start over. With a lighter touch and blowing on the brush before applying the blush the color went on much more sheer and natural. I would suggest using this one sparingly to get the most natural flush. Bronzer, blush and the all over shadow/highlighter The bronzer will be great for conturing but personally I like a little shimmer with my bronzer since I use it as a blush substitute in the summer. So I would need to bring in a different bronzer to do that with 4. The Mascara: The mascara is a nice dark black and is a decent formula with minimal clumping but again for a more natural look I still prefer the Tarte Gifted Mascara it nourishes the lashes while lengthening. I find that this makes my eyes pop and look awake without that false lash obviousness of some mascaras. But the one in the kit will do great for short trips or post gym needs 5. The Lipgloss: I love this! The color is natural and sheer and it isn't sticky. It really does moisturize and in the winter there is almost nothing more important to me. 6. The Highlighter Ok so technically this is listed as an all over eyeshadow color BUT i find that it works great as a highlighter on cheekbones, brows and eyes. And by using it this way I don't need to grab a highlighter to take with me as well as this kit. Overall Notes: Love that this kit contains (most) everything I need for the day Love that it can go from day to night effortlessly Don't Love the bronzer as a standalone product Don't Love the mascara as a standalone product I think that this will be a great workhorse to keep with me for trips and gym days and will most likely get a lot of attention during the week as well, but will still keep switching in a couple of my other mainstays to make it truly complete.
I gave this to all of the special women in my life for Christmas. It has a great color palette and is great from on the go women. It has all you need such as eyeshadow, blush, eyeliner, lipstick and mascara! Urban Decay products are amazing and worth the money!
I was given this as a birthday present. It is something I keep on me at all times. This is a great product for hurry and go situations, and I couldn't love it more.
