A lot of times, when we think of smoky eye makeup, we automatically associate it with uber bold, dark looks, but the new Urban Decay Smoky Palette proves your version can be as demure or dramatic as you please!
But first, can we just take a moment to obsess over this packaging!!
The case is so beautiful and thoughtfully designed with smoky haze covering the outside of the package, while the base is a brown translucent case. It is very sturdy and would keep up well for travel and in makeup kits. The case closes magnetically and there is a huge mirror which is great for doing your makeup on the go.
The inside has a row of twelve shadows as in the previous palettes but the names are now engraved into the packaging so they don’t rub off as was the case for my previous NAKED palettes. The double-sided brush included in the kit is also ideal for perfectly blended looks with a pencil brush on one end and a tapered blending brush on the other.
Now the range of colors is truthfully the value of this palette! I know it is called NAKED Smoky but you can honestly achieve a wide range of neutral to smoky looks with these shades. With four matte shades, six satins, and two sparkle shades, the opportunities for perfected eye looks are endless.
The shadows are highly pigmented and are buttery smooth and blendable–exactly what you need when layering dark shadows for high impact looks.
