The “Naked Eyeshadow Palette” by Urban Decay looks similar to the other Naked palettes by the same brand except that the box is made out of cardboard.
The overall design of the product is minimalist with the brand and product name printed on the palette in a gold large font against a brown background. The product comes with a mirror attached to the lid and a two-sided brush which makes it convenient for travel. However, the packaging is not very sturdy.
The shades are velvety or powdery depending on the color.
The product does not have any particular smell.
There are 12 full-sized shadows in total. The shades have fun names: “Bribe,” “Angel Fire,” “Barely Baked,” “Retro,” “Burn,” “End Game,” “Dreamweaver,” “Reputation,” “Boundaries,” “Distilled,” and “Bucked” “Blur.” The shadow colors range from pink nudes to brownish, mauve, lilac/blue and black. The palette has a bronze tone. Some shades are matte, others shimmery and glittery.
For a simple look, use the eyeshadow brush to apply one thin layer of eyeshadow over the eyelid. If you wish to go for a bolder look, you can use a lighter shade to define the inner eye and then use a darker shade on the rest of the eyelid. For best results, we recommend using a base primer before applying the eyeshadow.
The “Naked Eyeshadow Palette” by Urban Decay offers a wide range of options in terms of both colors offered and style. The eyeshadows have a bronze and warm undertone which makes them suitable for day and night looks. The applicator brush that comes with the palette is of good quality as it is very sturdy and does not wear easily.
When we tested the eyeshadow colors, we found that they are easy to apply, are long-lasting and do not fade easily. The color range offered allowed for a variety of different applications and looks. We especially found that the palette shades made the eyes pop.
For optimal results, we recommend applying a primer before the eyeshadow and pairing the shadow color with a colored eyeliner.
The “Naked Eyeshadow Palette” retails at $65.7/12shades which is pricier than other products such as Benefit Cosmetics’ “Vanity Flair Nude Eyeshadow Palette” which sells at $46.66/12 shades and Maybelline New York’s “The Blushed Nudes Eye Shadow Palette” which retails at $20/12 shades.
