As the proud owner of Urban Decay’s Naked 1,2, and 3 palettes, I was just as excited as the rest of the world when this beauty came out! My excitement dampened upon reading some other bloggers’ reviews at the launch, but I decided to purchase it this weekend and give it a go anyway.
Can I just say, I’m glad I took that leap of faith!
For me, this palette is another hit from UD. The textures are smooth, the pigments are vibrant, and the blendability is on point as usual. Gorgeous packaging is just another plus for me, as I truly love the smoky design and sturdiness of it all. I played around with the shades this weekend and created several wearable, day-to-night looks that lasted for hours and hours with a little bit of primer.
If you’re an urban decay fan, you may remember a couple of other smoky shadow collections they’ve produced over the years – filled with beautiful jewel tones, but no blending shades and no highlighters. This version takes that feedback and makes a product allowing deviation from the standard smoky eye, while still providing the necessary tools to create a complete look.
