Hello Oreo! I’m pretty sure we all know this beauty product that I am about to review. It’s been really popular in the market lately and some of my local beauty stores don’t have them in stock. It’s so good and the colors are indeed very wearable. Say Hola to Urban Decay Naked, Naked 2, Naked 3 and Naked Smoky eyeshadow palettes!
Each palette is a collection of neutral-toned eyeshadows in different range of textures and shades. They are meant to be wearable and versatile to wear for any occasion at any given time or day. It’s like looking good naked with eyeshadows that will complement your eyes and your skin tone very well. Hmmn, I like the idea and I like the colors of each palette, for sure, only, it can be very hard to pick just one. 🙂
Urban Decay Naked Eyeshadow Palette – The first eyeshadow by Urban Decay in the Naked line. It’s full of neutral-toned shades that are indeed very wearable. They come in matte, satin, and shimmery sparkled shades. Most of them are bronze-hued which are ideal for any skin tone and can definitely work for tanned to darker-toned girls. It is the basic primary colors for those who loves neutrals. As far as I can see, there’s only 2 matte shades in this palette. Most are quite shimmery yet very well pigmented. I love the velvety casing, the free eyeshadow brush, and a sample of eye primer that came with it.
Urban Decay Naked 2 Eyeshadow Palette – The taupe-hued version of Naked. Actually, I can’t quiet makeup my mind as to which one I would prefer, this or the one above? I think this is the more neutral and slightly lighter sister of UD’s Naked. A bit less shimmer and with slightly more matte and satin colors. It’s extremely wearable, specially for a “day look.” The casing is very different from Naked, but similar to Naked 3. A tin metallic hinged-lid which is unique and easier to clean. My favorite shades from this palettes are: Chopper, Tease, Snakebite, Suspect, Verve, YDK and Busted. Also, the color “Half Baked” has been repeated from the Naked eyeshadow palette.
Urban Decay Naked 3 Eyeshadow Palette – Rose-hued neutrals. Probably my least favorite, as I’m always wary in buying rose/pink-tinged eyeshadow colors. However, this one is an exception because a lot of its shades are very wearable. Some blended well on my skin that it’s kinda hard to identify them. It’s definitely like a neutral-toned pink. This would look really great on fair-skinned gals. My favorites from this palettes are: Limit, Nooner, Liar, Factory, Mugshot, and Darkside.
Urban Decay Naked Smoky Eyeshadow Palette – For smoky eyes. I’d like to think of this as the darker version of UD’s Naked. It is also the most pigmented and has a lot of matte shades to it, as expected, to create those sultry, smoky eyes. A lot of blacks, browns and grays with a bit of neutrals, this is my most favorite of them all in terms of shades. Although, I find that this can tricky to pull off during the day, as it is meant to create that smoldering smoky eyes, unless you want to be part of the cast of Penny Dreadful. 🙂 Also, I prefer the case of this eyeshadow palette the most, as it feels more robust and I love the “floating smoke” design. The brush that came with it is also different from the other previous three Naked brushes. This one has tapered crease brush on one side and a smudger brush on the other. Ideal for that gorgeous smoky arsonist eyes, Ha! 🙂
