Palette Series: Urban Decay Naked on The Run

Palette Series: Urban Decay Naked on The Run ($54 USD)
I just got this in the mail and I had to write on it before everyone else did.  But it has been a while but here is another addition to my palette series.  This one is from Urban Decay.  Their Naked line has made millions with their Naked palettes.  Also we are all still debating whether to venture out and try their other naked products. 
So it's genius to find everything in one "travel friendly" pack.

Taken from Sephora:
A limited-edition, all-in-one travel palette loaded with exclusive eye shadows, blush, bronzer, lip gloss, and mascara—everything needed for a complete Naked makeup look.
The looks you can create are very nuetral and more on the rose gold side.  Though it claims to have brand new shades.  it looks very similar to the Naked palette 3.
A. Perversion Mascara - slimmer deluxe version (.13oz) [a full size is .4oz in case your wondering]
B. 24/7 Glide on Pencil in black or zero (deluxe size)
C. Naked Ultra Nourishing Lip Gloss in Sesso (Full Size, Woo Hoo!)
D. Five Eye shadows in Dive (metallic rose/gold micro-shimmer), Fix (soft taupe matte), Resist (medium metallic taupe), Dare (medium brown matte), Stun (metallic bronze/light gold micro-shimmer)

E. Bronzer ( a bit orangey for me)
F. Blush (very bright and pigmented, use a careful hand)
G. Highlight

Percentage of FACE it covers: 70%
Face (Foundation)
Blush - Yes
Eyeshadows(3) - Yes
Bronzer/ Contour - Yes
Eyeliner - Yes
Setting powder
Highligter - Yes
Mascara - Yes
Lipstick/Lipgloss - Yes

Travel Friendly? Yes
Can you double up on products? Yes
Does it include application tools? No
Mirror? - Yes
Do you need additional application tools? Yes
Factors of uniqueness:
All in one feature of the naked products
Still need to bring: Face products

You can double up on the products use  "Dare" as a eyebrow powder  and the highlight can be mixed with the shadows for a new look.

The packaging is very similar to the Vice palettes, a bit of a cheap plastic that could split and shatter if dropped.  Though it's called travel friendly, my reccommendation is still be very careful when travel with it.
It would have been nice to include at least one double ended eyeshadow brush with it but I think they wanted to get out the products more.  And you do get alot of product for the same price of a regular naked pallete.  A full size of the Naked Nourishing Lip gloss will already cost you 20 dollars. the eye shadows alone are already (.4oz) compared to .03oz of the VICE and .05oz of the naked pallete 3.

If you are into the rose gold brown nuetrals of Urban Decay, you will love this.  But as a makeup lover I am sure I cannot just travel with this palette without lugging around a few more products to make THIS palette work for me. Palette available on Urban Decay website, Sephora and Ulta.  But I think this might be put in the back of my closet or returned.
