Urban Decay Highway Queen On the Run Mini Eyeshadow Palette Review & Swatches

 

Highway Queen

Urban Decay Highway Queen On the Run Mini Eyeshadow Palette is a new, limited edition orange-toned palette that features four more matte shades and four more shimmery shades.

The formula was drier and thinner for most shades, which resulted in so-so application and wear; it’s just not the type of formula that does well on its own–it needed a primer underneath to ensure even adhesion and longer wear. I find this formula to be drier and inferior to the one in the larger Born to Run palette in application and wear.

Coast

Coast is a pale yellow with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had good color coverage with a soft, silky texture that felt a little dusty in the pan but didn’t give me trouble with fallout. This shade stayed on well for seven hours before fading visibly.

Highway Queen

Highway Queen is a light-medium peach with moderate, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had nearly opaque pigmentation paired with a moderately powdery texture that had some fallout and sheered out a bit. I’d recommend wearing this with a primer underneath to improve adhesion, evenness of application, and wear as it only lasted decently for seven hours on me.

Urban Decay Shag Van Eyeshadow

Shag Van

Shag Van is a medium-dark orange with strong, warm undertones and a mostly matte finish. There were barely-there flecks of micro-sparkle throughout but they did not translate to the lid at all. The texture felt smooth, substantial but not too powdery, so it applied well to bare skin and blended out nicely without losing its full color coverage (where I wanted it). It wore well for seven and a half hours on me before I noticed slight fading.

Road Soda is a bright, tangerine orange with strong, warm undertones and a matte finish. The texture was soft, lightly powdery, but smooth and blendable. It had rich pigmentation that applied evenly to bare skin and lasted nicely for seven and a half hours before fading visibly.

Urban Decay Backseat Babe Eyeshadow

Backseat Babe

Backseat Babe is a light-medium orange with strong, warm undertones and a yellowy gold shimmer. It had opaque pigmentation with a soft, lightly dusty texture that was thinner and looked truer-to-pan with a dampened brush. It started to fade noticeably after seven hours of wear.

Urban Decay Pull Over! Eyeshadow

Pull Over!

Pull Over! is a rich, orange-copper with warm undertones and a metallic sheen. The consistency was soft, more loosely-pressed in the pan, but it applied evenly and blended out well on bare skin. It had opaque color payoff that wore nicely for seven and a half hours on me.

Rest Stop

Rest Stop is a light-medium pink-coral with moderate, warm undertones and warmer golden shimmer. The pigmentation was opaque, while the eyeshadow had a smooth, slightly firmer texture to it, so it worked best with a heavier handed approach to pick up product evenly with a brush. It stayed on well for seven and a half hours on me before I noticed fading.

Urban Decay Roswell Eyeshadow

Roswell

Roswell is a medium, coppery brown with warm undertones and a frosted finish. It had semi-opaque color coverage that applied a bit unevenly to my bare lid, which was likely due to the thinner texture and some powderiness to it. This shade lasted well for seven hours before fading noticeably.
