Review, Swatch & Tutorial: Urban Decay - Born to Run Collection*

Urban Decay has done it again, it has launched a thoroughly beautiful collection called Born to Run. It contains three pencil liners, three lipsticks, a specialized packaging of their setting spray and of course the eyeshadow palette. I have them all swatched for you below so if you're interested, then keep scrolling down!

My favorite of the entire collection would definitely have to be the eyeshadow palette - it is pigmented, buttery smooth and blends like a dream put the metallics pack a punch when applied. You can also spritz your makeup brush with some setting spray or water to make the shimmers look foiled on the lid. I have created four different looks for you below with this palette and I hope you enjoy them!

The lipsticks have two in the comfort matte formula, and one in metallic. The liners stay true to their existing formulation which is buttery smooth pigmented only needing one swipe to deliver the perfect amount of color - all the swatches you see below are with ONE swipe.

As mentioned above, below I have created four looks for you, if you're interested to see what products I used for my entire face, I have included them in a photo right on the bottom of the page. Below I will just focus on the eyes - and will be letting you know what I used from the palette in each photo.
