Are you someone who loves to create lots of different looks? On the other hand, are you more comfortable sticking to your one or two, tried and true, looks? That’s why they make chocolate and vanilla. Specifically, that’s why UD created the Urban Decay Mini On The Run Palettes. In addition, the inspiration for the curated. mini On The Run eye shadow palettes was UD’s Born To Run Eye Shadow Palette. First, UD’s Born To Run Palette has 21 shades. Next, Born To Run is an ” all in one palette”. To explain, the Born To Run Palette has 21 neutral, smokey, bright or sultry eye shadow shades. As a result, the palette will create every possible look.
First of all, not all of us collect eye shadow palettes. Also, unless you’re a makeup artist, and need to create all possible looks, you don’t need another large palette. Chances are, you’d use, at most, 8 of the 21 Born To Run Shades. For this reason, Urban Decay created these three curated mini eye shadow palettes. One, you don’t need the large, all inclusive palette. Instead, you are better off with the 8 shades you’ll use.
Above all, the mini palettes are easy to take with you! Just throw it in your handbag, and you’ll have just what you need.
Urban Decay Mini On The Run Palettes Packaging
First, the On The Run Palettes are sturdy cardboard.
Furthermore, they have a magnetic closure. Therefore, you can take them , on the run, with you. And, you need not worry that the palette will open in your purse. You won’t lose a shadow that has come unglued. Also, it won’t make a powdery mess all over the inside of your bag. Each of the three palettes has a different design. Furthermore, the design matches the color of the shadows in each palette. Above all, you’ll need the large mirror in the palette. Then, you can put your shadows on anywhere.
Urban Decay Mini On The Run Palettes Formula
Urban Decay’s formulas are luxurious, and easy to work with. First, the shadows are soft, and buttery. Also, they are easy to apply. And, they are blendable. Finally, the shadow pigments are “insane.” As a result, they have amazing color payoff. Finally, the shades come in different finishes.
The finishes are shimmer, matte, satin, metallic and micro-sparkle. In addition, each palette has one iridescent transformer shade. The reason for this is you can switch up the look of your shades.
Urban Decay Mini On The Run Palettes Shades
The Mini On The Run Palettes come in three curated colorways. First, Shortcut has blush-toned neutrals, rosy hues, and a chocolate matte. Next, Detour has Sienna – hued metallics, from peach to pink to ivory to bronze-gold to deep terra cotta. Finally, Bailout has cocoa neutrals mixed with a deep purple hue. Bailout’s transformer is an iridescent lavender shade. I purchased Shortcut and Detour.
On The Run Shortcut Shades
First, Sin is a pale nude shimmer. Use this all over your lid. Also use it in the inner corner or your eyes. And, use it as a highlighter, on your brow-bone.
I am loving Laced, a pinky-taupe matte shade. I would wear this all over my lids.
Shortcut, a medium rose-pink matte looks great on the lids.

Escape is a warm peachy shade with a matte finish. I love to wear warm peach on my eye lids.
Detour is a deep mustard shade with a matte finish. Love this shade on the eye lids. Also, wear it in the crease. Be adventurous, and wear warm mustard as an eye liner! Smoke it out from the outer corner of your eyes.

My favorite shade in this palette, Plunge, is a deep metallic blue-green shade. I love wearing this teal shade on my eye lids. Also, it looks great as a liner.

Urban Decay On The Run Mini Last But Not Least……..
The Born To Run Eye Shadow Palette is the big momma. First, it has 21 shades. Either every shade in this palette is all you’ll ever need, or maybe they are all you’ll never need. Regardless, you can own the big momma palette and leave it on your vanity. However, you won’t need to lug all 21 shades with you!
Instead, you can take an On The Run Mini palette when you are “on the run!” They are easy to travel with. Also, you can throw one in your handbag for touch ups. Above all, they are your Goldilocks palette. First, they are not too big. Also, the shadow pans are not mini. In fact, they are the same size as the shadows in the big moma. So they are not too small. As Goldilocks would say, they are just right!!!!!!!
