Review of Urban Decay Naked: Smoky pallet


Haven Kirkpatrick

If you’re an avid makeup collector such as myself, the not-so-recent launch of the Urban Decay Naked: smoky pallet was a big deal. When it debuted fall of 2015, I knew I had to have it (much like every popular makeup item). I have part of the collection, the Naked: 2, and I love it; a mixture of neutrals, shimmers, and mattes, all perfectly blend-able and pigmented. After I finally got the Naked: Smoky I was a little less than impressed. The colors of the shadows are all dark and cool toned, which I enjoyed for my ~smoky~ looks. The quality is not all there, as they don’t blend very well and are not very pigmented. In summary, use a wet brush to apply the shadows for full pigment, build the colors up slowly for easier application, and the pallet is $54 so you may want to spend your money elsewhere.
