When I first heard that Urban Decay were bringing out a new Eyeshadow Palette to go with their Naked range I almost had a heart attack. You know the feeling, butterflies all up in your tummy with mini palpitations as your heart beats a million times a minute. No, just me? Well let me tell you now, I was very excited for this new addition. Having all three of the current Naked Palettes I felt a need deep within me for their new smokey friend and I became a little sad in my attempts to get this. I even stooped as low as to set an alarm on my phone on the 6th of August for its release just incase it flew off the shelves as fast a number 3 did. Talk about pathetic. Nevertheless a couple of days later it arrived in its gorgeous packaging and I fell in love once again.
The blue / grey hues of this palette caught my fancy instantly and I’ve found myself gravitating to shades such as Dagger, Black Market and Smoulder more often than most. I’m a sucker when it comes to a smokey eye so this palette is definitely the one for me. I think all four of the Naked palettes have something special about them which make me love each one individually, but out of them all this is without a shadow of a doubt my new favourite (see what I did there). Especially when there are four matte shades in this bad boy. Yep that’s right, you heard me correctly, there are four matte shades! Shall we do a happy dance? As much as I love my shimmers, there is nothing more beautiful to me than a gorgeous matte! Well done Urban Decay, you’ve definitely stepped up your game with this one. My personal favourite has to be Thirteen; a gorgeous off white / cream shade which perfectly illuminates the inner corners of my eye to brighten up my dramatic smokey looks. The palette is so well balanced with shades and different colours that blend so magically together for all kinds of different styles that it’s a wonder why they haven’t brought this one out sooner…
Another point to make here on how absolutely stunning this palette is has to be the packaging. Now I loved the original Naked Palette packaging (the velvety touch is so cool) and I was slightly disappointed when for the Naked 2 (and then 3) they changed it to the hard metal case, but for this Urban Decay have definitely upped their game and I am even more in love … If that was even possible. The translucent ‘smokey’ casing with the gunmetal lettering and magnetic close just captures the character of these shadows perfectly and I honestly don’t think it could look any sexier. I don’t think I’ve ever been this excited over a set of eyeshadows, but there you go! You can grab the Naked Smoky Palette at FeelUnique.com for £38!
I’ve recently filmed a Get Ready With Me video (which I’m hoping will make the cut) for my Youtube Channel featuring this new product so keep an eye out for it by subscribing to BekyLou on Youtube!
