If you’re into a warm, neutral look but also love to play with fun, blue tones you’ll need to set your sights on getting the new Urban Decay Detour On the Run Mini Eyeshadow Palette.
what is it
Each palette is “travel-ready” with finishes in matte as well as metallic. All 3 of the palettes also include a complementary, iridescent transformer shade.
This post will focus on Urban Decay Detour, which is a mostly warm-toned neutral palette with a pop of blue.
Eight (8 x 0.02 oz/ 0.8 g) shades are included in Dash (pale bronze-gold shift), Escape (warm peach matte), Detour (deep mustard matte), 16th Street (metallic bronze-gold), Confidential (deep terra-cotta matte), Switchback (holographic green shift transformer), Off The Grid (pink ivory matte) and Plunge (deep metallic blue green).
The Urban Decay Detour On The Run Mini Eyeshadow Palette is full of perfectly warm neutral shades, but that blue is what will pull your heart in and hold on to it.
The palette itself is just under the size of my hand and though it’s cardboard it’s sturdy. The inside features a generously sized mirror parallel to 8 eye shadows. It’s compact enough to be perfect for travel.
As with the other palettes in the On The Run line-up I found the mattes (Off The Grid, Escape, Detour and Confidential) to apply, blend and wear beautifully.
The metallic shades (Dash, 16th St. and Plunge) are beautiful worn dry but, again, will be more intense if you use them wet. Plunge was another that when you use it dry you’ll need to layer to build the color evenly.
The transformer shade (Switchback) is one of the most beautiful that I’ve ever seen. Though it applies evenly when used dry I would recommend using a damp brush for more intensity.
Overall, the Urban Decay Detour Palette is going to call to a lot of people and IMO you won’t be disappointed.
