Is this Urban Decay's BEST palette ever?

When I think of eyeshadow palettes I think of Urban Decay. The Naked palette was the first ever 'high end' make up product that I owned (and still own and use to this day.) I think that the Naked range is where my obsession with collecting eyeshadow palettes came from.

A lot of people collect lipsticks, they collect highlighters... I collect Eyeshadow Palettes and I live for it. Yes, I only have two eyes... yes, maybe I do always go for the same gold shades every day (I'm not ashamed) but there is something so beautiful about an untouched palette.

(How many times am I going to say the word palette in this blog post...) Anyway, swiftly moving on before I start getting proper emosh about pressed pigments.
Urban Decay - Born To Run palette. When I saw this on Instagram (months before it's release) I knew that I NEEDED this. The packaging is unlike any that I have seen on a palette and the colours are to die for.

If you take only one piece of information from my blog for the rest of time, believe me when I say this palette is SO WORTH THE MONEY!
First of all, the packaging is just amazing. It feels so sturdy, it's slightly heavy but I genuinely believe that this is ideal for travelling. Have you seen the size of this mirror!?!? Sometimes I just use this palette for the mirror alone when doing my make up, it really is amazing.

This palette has the perfect mix of matte and shimmer shades and again, going back to travelling with this, there are so many eye looks you can create with these colours/formulas that you really do only need to pack this one product with you. Gone are the days of packing 3/4 palettes because they have different shades in each one that you need.
Anyone who knows me knows that I love a gold eyeshadow look. My favourite combo is Riff, Blaze and Stranded. If I'm being completely honest... I love all the colours but thought I couldn't see myself wearing the blues and the pinks. That was until I swatched them...
Okay Urban decay... I see you. I SEE YOU. 

I would say, without a doubt, this is my favourite eyeshadow palette that Urban Decay have ever released. If you're unsure of which one to buy, I would certainly recommend this one.  Now I would like to try the whole 'Born To Run' collection pleaseeeeee. 

Have you tried any of the Born To Run collection? Which piece is your favourite?

 Lots of love.
