Hello! How are you guys? I hope you are fabulous! I recently received my Urban Decay Naked Smokey Palette. This is the latest in their Naked line. I have played with all of the Naked palettes at Sephora, but only own Naked 3, so this is a nice addition. I am absolutely crazy about the Naked 3, but know that this is not a lot of peoples favorite. Will Smokey be?
I think YES! This palette has four matte, four low shimmer/metallic, and four shimmery shades. The range in finishes makes this palette versatile and the colors can be paired with just about anything. The packaging is amazing like always. This one actually is visually better than others due to a smoke effect on the outside and on the brush. The only thing I have had trouble with is the depth of the brush holder. It makes it tricky to get out. This is easily fixed by tilting the palette until the brush falls into your hand.
The texture and pigment of the colors is again spot on. They are easy to use and bendable. This weekend I used it for a full smokey eye…and it was AWESOME. It was smokey, bold, and beautiful! Below is a simple little video with my swatches, so check it out!
