Urban Decay Naked Smoky

Monday, July 13, 2015

I've been waiting what seems like 100 years to get my hands on Urban Decay's newest offering.
I'm a massive fan of the (now sadly discontinued) Smoked Palette which provided a bit more drama than any of the three Naked incarnations. As soon as I heard UD were launching the Naked Smoky palette I knew it would be right up my street.

When I received the palette this afternoon, I could have easily broken a world record for fastest parcel opening. I couldn't wait to give it a go. The palette comes housed in a sleek, plastic case with a cool floating smoke effect. It has a magnetic closure which means no accidental damage to precious shadows in your handbag. Urban Decay have created a new brush for Smoky, as usual its double ended but this time has a fluffy, tapered crease brush and a pencil type smoulder brush.

The Naked Smokey is different to the other Naked palettes as the neutral shades are a little more sultry and smoky. Including warm and cool shades and from mattes to satins to shades with sparkle, the Naked Smoky has got it all. The palette has the usual 12 shades and includes nine never before seen and three exclusives.  As always Urban Decay eyeshadows are buttery soft and blend like a dream.

The shades are; 

High - champagne shimmer with micro-glitter
Dirtysweet - medium bronze
Radar - metallic taupe with iridescent micro-glitter
Armor - metallic silver-taupe with tonal sparkle
Slanted - light metallic gray
Dagger - medium charcoal with micro-shimmer
Black Market - jet-black satin
Smolder - deep plum-taupe
Password - cool taupe matte
Whiskey - rich brown mate
Combust - soft pink-taupe
Thirteen - light beige satin

 I'm really excited to try this out properly and can see it becoming my go-to eyeshadow palette as the shades make it easy to create a multitude of looks for both day and night. Urban Decay Senior Artist Danielle Roberts has a great tutorial showing the palette in action on her Youtube Channel.

The Naked Smoky palette will be available on the UK Urban Decay website (£38.00) from 28th July and in stores 6th August. You can also sign up to the Naked Smoky mailing list to be first to know when it goes online.
