Review: Urban Decay Naked Smoky

This week I was an extremely lucky girl and was very kindly sent the infamous Naked Smoky palette from the lovely team at Urban Decay.

Now let me just start by saying that before I got swept up into the world of YouTube and blogging I was already a HUGE fan of the UD Naked palettes! So much so that I practically begged my poor boyfriend to queue up outside Debehnams with me for over an hour each time a new one was released - soz boyfee :/

Anyway... when I heard that they were bringing out this beaute I couldn't wait to get my hands on it! I've been using it for the past couple of days so I thought I would share my thoughts :)

Colour Selection
Amazing! The palette holds 4 matte neutral shades and the rest are all shimmers. I think the twelve shadows all compliment one another flawlessly to create the the perfect smoky eye look. 

Pigmentation, Blend & Wear - 
I haven't gotten around to using all of the shades as of yet however all of the ones that I have tried so far have been incredibly pigmented, super easy to blend and have lasted a really long amount of time on the lids with minimal fading and that's without a primer!

Packaging -
I have to say that the packaging is by far my favourite out of all of the Naked palettes. It feels super sturdy and looks lovely displayed on my vanity.

Value for Money? -
I'm not going to lie and say that £38 isn't a lot of money to part with, however these shadows are worth every penny in my opinion. Each shade is completely different allowing you to create multiple looks whether it be for a night out with the girls, a date or even a natural everyday look. Also when you think about it each shade comes to just over £3 which is a fraction of the cost if you were to purchase the shades individually!

All in all I absolutely love the palette and I can't wait to start experimenting with the colours and different looks  :) 

I'm actually planning on filming a make up tutorial using the palette on my YouTube Channel over the next couple of weeks so if you'd like to see that make sure to keep an eye out!

Anyhoo I hope you lovelies enjoyed this little post and let me know what your favourite colours are from the palette?! - Mine are Smolder, Combust & High :)

Lots of love

*Disclaimer - This palette was very kindly sent to my by Urban Decay however I have not been asked to write this post or paid to. All opinions are honest and my own - Pinky promise :)


  1. This looks beautiful! I need this to add to my collection <3

  2. The packaging looks the best out of all the other palettes but I still don't know whether I can part with £38 for it. Oh the dilemma haha :)
