Urban Decay Naked Palette Review and Swatches


Urban Decay Naked Palette

Urban Decay Naked Palette {$48.00, 12 x 0.05 oz., Urban Decay) is a 12-pan eyeshadow palette featuring 8 neutral-tone and 4 smokey full-sized shades. The palette is a slim, rectangular, sturdy cardboard palette with a brown velour cover. A full-sized mirror and dual-ended eyeliner or eyeshadow brush are included.

Virgin is a warm light pinky beige with a soft frost finish. It has a soft, smooth, dense texture with great pigmentation. I find it slightly too reflective as a brow highlight.

Sin is a warm pinky champagne with a frost finish. It has a soft, smooth, dense texture with excellent pigmentation. I experienced a bit of fallout with this shade.

Naked is a neutral-cool light soft brown with a matte finish. It has a soft, smooth, dense cream-like texture with great pigmentation.

Sidecar is a cool light-medium grayed brown with micro-glitter a frost finish. It has a soft, slightly gritty and dense texture with excellent pigmentation. I experienced a considerable amount of fallout with this shade.

Buck is a warm medium soft brown with a matte finish. It has a soft, smooth, dense, cream-like texture with great pigmentation.

Half Baked is a neutral-warm bronze-gold with a frosty metallic finish. It has a soft, smooth texture with excellent pigmentation. It's one of my all-time favorite shades!

Smog is a darkened bronze with a golden bronze sheen. It has a soft, smooth, dense texture with excellent pigmentation. Long-time fans know that smog has appeared in nearly every Urban Decay palette!

Darkhorse is a cool darkened smokey jewel-tone brown with a shimmer finish. It has a drier but dense formula with great pigmentation.

Toasted is a smokey grayed mauve with a metallic finish. It has a soft, smooth, dense texture with excellent pigmentation.

Hustle is a cool smokey plum-brown with a satin finish. It has a soft, slightly crumbly, dense texture with good pigmentation.

Creep is a cool soft black with a shimmer finish. It has a soft, smooth, but thin texture and good pigmentation.

Gunmetal is a cool dark charcoal silver with a metallic finish. It has a soft, smooth, dense texture and excellent pigmentation.

In terms of shade selection, texture, pigmentation, packaging, and value, Urban Decay hit all the marks. You can create everyday effortless looks, complicated dramatic looks, alluring smokey looks…everything with this little guy!

I can just imagine everyone in the planning process thinking, "just another run-of-the-mill palette" not for a minute foreseeing this to be an international phenomenon! Whoever came up with the idea for this was definitely promoted!
