Urban Decay Naked Smoky Eyeshadow Palette Review

I am so excited about this review! I picked up the Urban Decay Naked Smoky Eyeshadow Palette for $27 when it was on sale at Urban Decay. This palette has all my favorite colors and looks amazing on my 46-year-old eyes. You’re never to old to go “Smoky”!

What’s to love?

First up, the packaging is a work of art itself. The palette is heavy and the marbled cover is so unique with raised lettering. You also get a super high quality mirror and one nice dual-ended brush which I thought was very high quality. I used the brush to apply the shadow in my example below.

They shades are very pigmented and apply beautifully. I had no creasing and the powder is very fine. You get 12 smoky shades in this palette that range from dark to light. They start with 4 metallic, then 4 shimmer, then 4 matte shade which is perfect for just about any look. The colors in this palette look even prettier in person.

I wasn’t sure what to expect when I ordered this palette but I am blown away by the quality and color selection. This is definitely one of my new favorites.

The palette is Made in the USA and I had zero irritation from this eyeshadow.

You also get a neat fold-out sheet that gives you some tips and ideas for creating the perfect look.

The shades.

The first four shades are High (light gold), Dirtysweet (light bronze), Radar (metallic brown) and Armor (medium metallic grey/brown).

The middle four shades are Slanted (medium grey shimmer), Dagger (ark grey shimmer), Black Market (black shimmer) and Smolder (dark purple shimmer).

The last four shades are Password (dark grey matte), Whiskey (dark brown matte), Combust (beige matte) and Thirteen (fair matte).

My favorite shades which I used below are Smolder,Black Market, Dirtysweet and Thirteen. I think my eyes look pretty good. I do were glasses so I included that pic too. I’m wearing Clinique Chubby Mascara too.

Price: $54

    It has some pretty shades, but as I’m a fan of warm tones it’s not my cup of tea. xx


  2. Nice score Bonnie. I haven’t tried the smokey eye yet. I think I’m too old, and my eyelids are too droopy!

  3. I think the shades are really pretty. Nice one!
