Urban Decay Naked Smoky Eye Shadows Palette Review: 

Hello everyone! 😉 It’s almost time for the New Year Eve party and we all know that we want an amazing look to make our friends say: ” Wow! Your makeup is awesome tonight!”.
So, I thought to review the perfect palette: The Urban Decay Naked Smokey Palette.

Who is it for?

Everyone who wants an amazing palette with a versatile selection of shades for creating intense night-time looks as well as softer day-time eye shadows designs!   

What’s good about it?

This palette, along with the others in the Urban Decay Naked line, has a great pigmentation, wears well throughout the day without fading or creasing and has a good texture too (between powdery and buttery in consistency).

In this palette you will find 12 eye shadows: 4 matte, 4 satin and 4 shades with sparkle.

As I said before, most of the shades have a smooth texture, a deep pigmentation and they also are very easy to blend. In fact, according to Urban Decay, each shade features the Urban Decay’s Pigment Infusion System, a proprietary blend of ingredients that gives every shade its velvety texture, rich color, a serious staying power and blendability.

The included double-ended brush (available only in this palette) has a fluffy Crease Brush on one end and a smudging Smoky Brush on the other; both ends work well, and if you are traveling, this brush is enough to get you by.

If this palette was under your Christmas Tree but you are not so sure how to use it then don’t worry, because inside the box you will find a detailed tutorial look book with step by step instructions and four amazing ways to create an appropriate go-to-the-office look, an intense go-to-the-party smoky eyes look and everything in between.

•The 4 matte colors are:

-Thirteen (light beige satin)

-Combust (soft pink-taupe)

-Whiskey (rich brown)

-Password (cool taupe)
•The 4 satin colors are:

-Smolder (deep plum-taupe)

-Black Market (jet-black satin)

-Dagger (medium charcoal w/micro-shimmer)

-Slanted (light metallic gray)

 

•The 4 shades with sparkles are:

-Armor (metallic silver-taupe w/tonal sparkle)

-Radar (metallic taupe w/iridescent micro-glitter)

-Dirtysweet (medium bronze)

-High (champagne shimmer w/micro-glitter)

The packaging is also awesome! The case and the brush feature a cool “floating” smoky effect, with the words “Naked Smoky” on the top of the case.

The magnetic closure on the case prevents shadow mishaps in your bag, and the full-size mirror makes it easy to touch up your makeup wherever and whenever you want!

What’s not so good about it?

I have to say that this is an expensive palette, but it’s also an amazing product, so it’s definitely worth the price!

Also, 2 shades with sparkle, Armor and Radar, have a little fall-out when you put them on. For this reason I would recommend using a good eye primer to prepare your eyelids and solidify the wear of this shades. (FYI: I have oily eyelids, so I always use this palette with a good eye primer, and I can honestly say that my makeup lasts a whole day/night).

Final thoughts!

The Urban Decay Smoky Palette is, in my opinion, the perfect palette and a must have product! 

P.S: If you own none of the others Urban Decay palettes and you are thinking of buying one, the Smoky Palette is the best choice because it’s definitely offers more look options than the others.
