Well, first I am probably the last beauty blogger to be writing a post on this. But second, holy cow! What a gorgeous palette! Urban Decay has come out with their fourth installment of their Naked Palettes, the Naked Smoky retailing for $54.00. For me personally, the outside colors in the palette are gorgeous! It would be nice to add this to my collection, but I am trying to scale back on my makeup purchasing. I also just recently subscribed to a makeup box so I'm excited for that! And yes, if you've been following me for a while, you will no doubt remember how disappointed I had been in Glossybox, So Choix, and French Box. But I just miss having a monthly box but don't worry, I'll be blogging about that when it arrives! But back to basics! (Man, that would have been a great segway back to UD but this isn't about the Basics, it's about Smoky!) If I still want it and I have the money, I might pick this up during Sephora's November 20% off sale, but for now, it's not a must-have. What do you think?
What it is:
A palette with 12 smoky neutral eye shades, a double-ended brush, and a detailed lookbook with four chic looks.
What it does:
Sweep on popular smoky eye looks with Urban Decay’s Naked Smoky. Packed with all the essentials needed to create the perfect neutral smoky eye, it offers an array of shades, a double-ended brush, and a detailed lookbook that breaks down four amazing ways to nail any smoky look. The eye shadow pans offer a smoky, transparent base, the magnetic closure on the case prevents shadow from spilling your bag, and the full-size mirror makes it easy to get a sultry look whenever the urge strikes.
With a dozen alluring, smoky neutrals, including nine never-before-seen shades and three exclusives from past palettes, these shadows range from warm bronzes and dimensional grays to rich browns, gorgeous taupes, and a deep black. From mattes and satins to shades with sparkle, each shade in this palette features Urban Decay’s Pigment Infusion System™, a proprietary blend of ingredients that gives every shade its velvety texture, rich color, staying power, and blendability. The exclusive double-ended brush, with a tapered crease brush on one end and a smoky smudger brush on the other, makes application easy.
