Review: Urban Decay Naked Smoky

I've recently gotten my hands on the newest addition to Urban Decay's 'Naked' line - the Naked Smoky. Of course, I was beyond excited to try this palette out after sitting at my laptop, counting down the days until it was available to order. Although I'm not usually one for a smoky eye I was intrigued by this palette and wanted to give it a try for myself - and you know what? I have been loving it!





Urban Decay have once again upped their game when it comes to packaging. The Naked Smoky comes in a hard plastic palette which snaps shut with a small magnet at either end, making it a lot more secure than the Naked 3 which mine has actually broken and no longer closes properly. The look of this palette has to be my favourite of the six palettes in the range as it has a very sleek look about it.

The shades in this palette are gorgeous, and I feel as if there is something for everyone. With everything from a creamy beige, to jet black, you can create an endless amount looks with this. I have left a brief description of each of the shades below, as well as swatches. As with the other Naked palettes, the shadows are of great quality. They are pigmented, easy to blend and you don't get an awful lot of fall out either. 




'High' - A champagne shimmer with micro-glitter.

'Dirtysweet' - A medium bronze.

'Radar' - Metallic silver-taupe with iridescent micro-glitter.

'Armor' - Metallic silver-taupe with tonal sparkle.

'Slanted' - A light metallic grey.

'Dagger' - Medium charcoal with micro-shimmer.

'Black Market' - Jet black satin.

'Smoulder' - Deep plum - taupe.

'Password' - Cool taupe matte.

'Whiskey' - Rich brown matte.

'Combust' - Soft pink taupe.

'Thirteen' - Light beige satin.


Have you gotten the chance to try this palette out yet? What's your favourite shade?

  8. I'm still very undecided about this palette, as I just feel like I won't use a lot of the shades. The more reviews I read the more intrigued I become so it's definitely one I need to check out in store x
