I AM SERENE L

|Urban Decay|NAKED SMOKY Palette

I am so so so so excited for today’s blogpost, as I’ve been waiting for the release of the Urban Decay NAKED SMOKY Palette for a while now, and it’s finally hit the UK Market! Woohooo πŸ˜€

I haven’t been excited for a makeup product as much as I was with this palette, as I’ve put my trust into the Urban Decay brand, and am rarely disappointed with their makeup quality!!! Judging from my love for my Naked 3 Eyeshadow palette, I thought the NAKEDΒ SMOKY Palette will be a nice addition to my Naked collection, for smokey & sultry makeup looks!!! I finally managed to bag myself a palette before the official online release of the product within the UK, which will be released in 2 days time! I happened to walk across the Westfield – White City Urban Decay store, and saw a huge display for the Palette, and something called out to me to go inside and swatch all the pretty shades & was told by the lovely assistant that the palettes are exclusively sold in this store, and the Covent Garden Store before the official online release & that’s when I made the decision to pick one up, as once they’re gone…. they’ll be gone for a LONG TIME!

First Impressions:

I adore the smoky graphics on the packaging, it compliments the theme of the smoky eyeshadows perfectly and sets the tone for the product! The packaging is sleek and very, very chic I’d be more than happy to open this palette on the go and show it off for the whole world to see! Haha πŸ˜€ I love the see through back for the palette, it is something I haven’t seen in a palette before and also compliments the tone of the palette!!!…. Something I adore about this palette is the way it opens, it slides open and closes with magnetic closing , with the Naked 3 palette that I also had, I had the problem of the opening clasp being too firm to open (in some cases, damaging some of the shadows from the force that is used in opening the shadow palette)! I also love the huge mirror that is included within the palette, a feature that is presented very nicely within all the Urban Decay palettes, and the double ended brush that features a tapered crease side and a smoky/ smudger side! I also love the included instruction / Picture guide on achieving the Iconic Urban Decay Smoky eye look!!!DSC_1247DSC_1244DSC_1250

The NAKED SMOKY eyeshadows:

I am impressed with the layout for the eyeshadow colours, within this palette you have an even distribution of eyeshadow groups including a shimmer group, satin group and matte group. You have 4 shadows in the 3 groups included! They’re also grouped together which is perfect and well organised for the palette, definitely a very nice touch for the product!

Swatching the shadows on my hands, I definitely was impressed with the quality and the pigmentation of the eyeshadows. When I say they are pigmented, oh boy are they PIGMENTED!!! …. You’ll see for yourself in my hand swatches!

    • The pigmentation is so so so intense and you’re right I absolutely love the UD Palettes they include a normal sized brush that is a win in my books cause the value for money in their palettes is spectacular! ❀

  40. This palette looks so gorgeous!! Also, seems to be of better quality that its predecessors – would you agree with this?

    • Thanks so much! YES I do agree with that, this palette is by far my fave from the other Naked palettes! A wider variety of shadows, better pigmentation, shadow bases shimmers, mattes, Satins / a better quality brush! The packaging is even easier to use and is just too beautiful to stare at & even the staying nature of the shadows is of a higher quality! I definitely recommend investing in one πŸ™‚ xoxoxo

  41. So much love for the UD products. i’ve got a Naked 3 palette and it is absolutely gorgeous. I’ve seen the Smokey version on a lot of blogs recently and the pigmentation and colours look amazing. How lucky were you to get your hands on this product before the release?! Can’t wait to see your make up tutorials using the shades xxx

    • Hehehe So do I, I love my naked 3 palette too it’s such a versatile palette & this one is even great to create some makeup looks with! ❀ I can't wait to share some makeup looks with this bad boy ❀ xoxoxo

  42. Love the packaging, so pretty. Pigmentation looks great and the colors seem very versatile, I totally see why you had to have this!

    • Thanks Anne πŸ™‚ are you thinking of getting this palette? It is such a beauty πŸ™‚ xoxox

      • Maybe…I love the way it looks, but I am on a very limited beauty budget right now (spending everything on furniture and decor) so i may have to wait a little while. xxx

      • Awww again congrats on the move πŸ’— πŸ™‚ and if you do happen to have a lil cash lying around I recommend this be the first purchase πŸ˜€ xoxox

  43. I have this palette and am totally in love with it. Was also really lucky to get it on a Β£10 off sale from feelunique.com. :)Amazing colours! Up there with my favourite palettes ever! x
