Yes the Urban Decay obsession continues, this time it’s the turn of the ‘Smoky’ palette. It’s exactly what it says on the tin! The prettiest of packaging with large silver/gray writing. A smouldering design with a magnetic closure. It screams high end quality! Like the other palettes it comes with a good quality brush, this brush is my definitely favourite. A tapered dome blending with a dome smudger on the other end, I reach for this using many of my other palettes. It also comes with a card explaining: keys to getting the perfect smoky eyes & 4 looks that are possible to create with the palette – iconic/reality star/smoky cat and every day. The card is very handy and gives great quality tips to follow when creating your desired look.
The shades – 8 shimmer shadows & 4 matte shadows, – 5 of the shadows are warm, 4 are cool and 3 are neutral cool. Shades include: High, Dirtysweet, Radar, Armor, Slanted, Dagger, Black Market, Smoulder, Password, Whiskey, Combust, & Thirteen. My most used shades include – Armour, Slanted, Dagger, Smoulder, Password, Combust & Thirteen.
The Naked Palette is priced at roughly €47.50/£39.50/$54. I purchased mine in my local Debenhams, but I know it’s available online from Urban Decay also. Pros include: The brusH, is very handy when creating the perfect smoky eye. The range of colours allows you to have a subtle smoky to a very dark & harsh look depending on your mood. Plus the amazing pigmentation of each shade! Cons include: I struggle to find any, but one thing was that there can be a small amount of fall out on certain shades. In my opinion this Naked Palette is very useful for people seeking a palette that creates the perfect smoky eye, it’s good for many skin tones as it has several shades depending on how dark you desire.
So have you used the palette? Is there a palette you use that creates the perfect smoky eye? Feel free to comment, or link me your posts & recommendations, I love hearing from you.
