Urban Decay On the Run Shortcut Mini Palette Review

While the UD On the Run Mini Detour and Bailout palettes left me unsatisfied and wanting more, the Shortcut palette didn’t disappoint!  If Gash was a true red, Rendezvous was a deep burgundy wine matte, and Back Alley was either Desperation or Tease, I’d think this was the perfect mini palette. I love Sin, Laced, Afterhours and Zone to bits!

Laced is the perfect sort of soft crease color or transition shade for me. Zone is an amazingly gorgeous, complex shade that deserves to be a single. I love that I see peach, pink, copper, red and bronzey gold in zone. Afterhours is a beautifully rich, romantic gunmetal grey shimmer. Rendezvous is a beautiful wine matte. Sin is one of my favorite eye brightening shades. Gash is a pretty metallic red. Really the only shade I’m not crazy about is Back Alley, as all the rest are wearable for me.

If you love Urban Decay’s eyeshadow formula and you love reds, you’ll love this palette. I feel like it has almost all of my favorite red hues that I reach for, plus Zone for extra fun. Because the palette has Afterhours in it, I think this palette would have been better off with Desperation or Tease instead of Back Alley for another neutral. Desperation is a deep grey taupe, while Tease is a light cool taupe.

Even though I’d skip the other two mini palettes, I wholeheartedly recommend the Urban Decay On the Run Shortcut Mini Palette! Reds are my jam and I love them.

What do you think of the UD Shortcut palette?

  • This is the only mini palette I’ve picked up so far, and I have to say I’ve used it a lot more than I thought I would (as I mostly lean towards cooler purples and greens). It’s perfect for quick and easy everyday looks, but it’s also great for doing some more intense looks. I love using Afterhours as a smoky liner.
