So what is a beauty/make-up blog without a review of the latest Urban Decay Naked Smoky Palette?!
For so long now, I have wanted to invest in eyeshadows which would allow for a bold, dramatic and fierce look. Having seen the hype of this palette all over social media, I finally caved in and purchased it from the FeelUnique website.
I already have the Urban Decay Naked and Naked 2 palette and absolutely love them! Why?
- The eye shadows are easy to apply (And blend!)
- The palettes contain a beautiful colour range (The Naked Palette consists of gorgeous golds and bronzes whereas the Naked2 Palette focuses more on cooler neutral tones and taupes)
- The quality is amazing!
Unlike the Naked and Naked2 Palette, the Naked Smoky arrived somewhat different to its predecessors. This time around the eyeshadows sit in a plastic case which has brown smoke like print, connoting a dark, mysterious, smoky, vampy feel which truly coincides with its purpose.
As with all Naked Palettes, inside you will find:
- A full sized mirror
- 12 eyeshadows ranging from shimmery, satin to matt finishes:
-Shimmery with glitter [High, Dirtysweet, Radar, Armor]
-Satin no glitter [Slanted, Dagger, Black Market, Smolder]
-Matt [Password, Whiskey, Combust, Thirteen]
- A dual-ended brush – One side is a fluffy blending brush while the other end is a shorter, more compact pencil brush that is sized well for adding depth to a smoky eye.
Overall, I love this palette. The flexibility in the shades allows this palette to suit everyone! It is definitely worth the investment. Here is a look I created using just 2 of the shades. I applied Black Market all over my lid & underneath my waterline and used the shade Whiskey in the crease.
I hope you all enjoyed this review & I’d love to hear your views on this palette in the comments section below…
