Urban Decay Smoky Palette

| Urban Decay Naked Smoky Palette | £38 | Link |

I'm finally getting round to posting about the new Urban Decay Smoky palette. I bought it on pre-release online but it arrived the day I went into hospital, so I had to wait to play around with it.

I love the packaging of the Smoky palette, it has a magnetic fastening that seems fairly secure. Each palette is different which adds a uniqueness and I like it more than the three previous Naked's. I have sensitivities to certain textures and I can't touch the original Naked palette.

The palette contains twelve eye shadows, a full-sized mirror and a dual-ended brush. One side is a fluffy blending brush and the other a precise pencil. I'm always impressed with the brushes in the Naked palettes and this one is really good.

High - Shimmer light pink
Dirtysweet - Shimmer bronze
Radar - Shimmer metallic taupe
Armor - Shimmer silver-taupe
Slanted - Satin grey
Dagger - Satin charcoal
Black Market - Satin black
Smolder - Satin plum-taupe
Password - Matte cool taupe
Whiskey - Matte brown
Combust - Matte pink-taupe
Thirteen - Matte beige

There are a lot of cooler tones in this palette and I love it, I'm a huge fan of a cool smoky eye as I think it looks lovely on porcelain skin. I really like the formula too, when I swatched the shades they felt buttery and pigmented. I haven't used the shadows on my eyes yet (as I'm in hospital) but will report back once I have. 

Have you got this palette? What are your thoughts?


  1. This palette looks gorgeous and I'm so tempted to pick it up to complete my collection but I know that I don't need it. As it isn't a limited edition palette I'm not desperate to pick it up ASAP but no doubt I shall eventually!

    1. Yeah, there's no rush. I just wanted to test it out. Hope you love it x

  2. I've got all of the Naked Palettes except for this one. Although the shades look pretty, I can't see myself wearing them all that often. I hope you are okay and hospital isn't too bad for you! x

  3. I'm not as into make up as a lot of the blogging community, especially being CF but I have always loved Urban Decay - if fact it's the only brand I own eyeshadow from! Hopefully get my hands on one of these and the on the runs for Xmas or something to add to my pallet collection.

    1. Ooo, yay, you need to get it, I'm obsessed x

  4. These palettes look gorgeous! I have Naked Basic (the first one that came out) and it's been very useful, but my brown shade came off. I'm now thinking of getting one of these... Thanks for sharing!
