Urban Decay G Train On the Run Mini Eyeshadow Palette Review & Swatches

G Train

Urban Decay G Train On the Run Mini Eyeshadow Palette is a new, limited edition eight-pan palette that featured three matte shades and five shimmers. The formula was drier, which meant they ran dusty to powdery with light to moderate fallout and a tendency to sheer out or appear drier on my lid. I’d recommend using most of the shimmery shades with a dampened brush to get a smoother finish on the lid.

Breakdown

Breakdown is a light, peachy beige with warm undertones and a pearly sheen. It had a moderately dusty texture, though it felt finely-milled and silky to the touch, but it had some fallout and a tendency to over-diffuse, which could result in turning other shades grayish. It had opaque pigmentation but was hard to keep at that level without a tacky primer underneath. It wore well for seven hours before fading noticeably on me.

City Kitty

City Kitty is a pale gold with moderate, warm undertones and a frosted finish. It had semi-opaque, buildable color coverage with a slightly drier, dustier texture that had a bit of excess product kicked up in the pan. It lasted well for seven hours before fading visibly on my lid.

Urban Decay Trax Eyeshadow

Trax is a medium-dark copper with warm, brownish undertones and a pearly sheen. It had opaque color coverage that applied evenly and smoothly to bare skin. The texture was soft to the touch, thin but not dusty or powdery. It stayed on well for seven and a half hours before showing signs of fading.

Urban Decay Night Trip Eyeshadow

Night Trip

Night Trip is a medium-dark green with neutral-to-cool undertones and subtle, golden shimmer. It had good pigmentation in a single layer, which was buildable to full coverage with less than half of a layer more. The texture was drier, slightly dusty, and seemed thin, so it looked more faded and didn’t apply as evenly to bare skin as I expected. It wore nicely for seven hours on me before fading visibly.

Subway is a light-medium orange with strong, warm undertones and a matte finish. The eyeshadow had good color payoff, which built up to full coverage with a second layer. The texture was drier, thin, and had some excess product kicked up in the pan but didn’t seem too prone to fallout or sheering out during application. It lasted well for seven hours on me before I noticed signs of fading.

Urban Decay Jolt Eyeshadow

Jolt is a brighter, light-medium gold with subtle, warm undertones and a metallic sheen paired with very fine, micro-sparkle. It had rich color coverage, while the texture felt slightly drier and thinner, which resulted in light fallout during application. The color started to fade noticeably on my lid after seven and a half hours of wear.

Urban Decay Tunnel Eyeshadow

Tunnel

Tunnel is a deep, reddish brown with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. The eyeshadow had a silky, smooth consistency that was a smidgen powdery in the pan, but it was denser and more substantial compared to the other shades in the palette. It had opaque pigmentation that stayed on well for seven and a half hours before fading visibly.

Urban Decay G Train Eyeshadow

G Train

G Train is a muted, medium-dark green with neutral-to-warm undertones and a matte finish. The texture was quite powdery, though finely-milled and soft to the touch, so I’d recommend using a light hand with it and building up coverage if necessary. I’d also suggest applying eye makeup prior to base as there was still some fallout to contend with even when I took care to avoid it. It had opaque pigmentation that lasted nicely for seven and a half hours on me before fading noticeably.
