|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 ๐Ÿ˜€

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 NAKEDย 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 ๐Ÿ˜€ 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!

  5. These are really pretty! I don’t think I’ll be getting the palette because I have enough smokey shadows, but if I was just starting out my collection this would clearly be a staple! The colours are gorgeous and I think you will wear them well. Have a beautiful weekend my love! ๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿ˜˜

    1. Heheh, what smoky palettes do you have? ๐Ÿ˜€ … I understand what you mean! If you have too many it would be pointless to buy a new one ๐Ÿ˜€ thanks sweetie! <3 xoxox

  6. How on Earth had I not heard about this before now?! It looks fantastic! I’ve never really tried to achieve a smokey eye, but if I ever did, this is definitely the direction I’d look in ๐Ÿ™‚ Looking forward to seeing your experiment with it Serene!!

    1. Hehehhe, I saw it randomly on the Pixiwoo facebook page, and since then I couldn’t take my eyes of the palette! I’m so glad I managed to get it, it’s fastly becoming my fave makeup palette :D!!! I can’t wait to share some looks with this UD Palette and thank you Gabrielle ๐Ÿ™‚ xoxox

  7. Wow the pigment is insane! I love all the colours, and the fact that each UD palette includes a decent brush that you can actually use!

    Velvet Blush

    1. 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! <3

    1. Hehe I know what you mean, when you feel you need an update! This one is an amazing addition to the Naked palette ranges ๐Ÿ˜€ you’re gunna absolutely love it & thanks hunny! I will check out your blog โ˜บ๏ธ xoxo

      1. And you’ve also got the neutrals and shimmers to play around with ๐Ÿ˜€ so much in a palette! ๐Ÿ˜€ I love Armor that silver shadow is too stunning ๐Ÿ˜€ xoxox

    1. Hehehe, the more I see things the more I end up wanting them more and more you have to check out the swatches in store! YOU’LL LOVE the palette ๐Ÿ™‚ xoxox

  8. This palette looks so lovely with the different shades. Sure sound like a great beauty product. ๐Ÿ™‚


    1. 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 ๐Ÿ™‚ xoxoxo

      1. Ohh great! As soon as i saw it, i immediately noticed the quality seemed much better than the previous ones, though they were good too (just too much fall out i think). Great palette, thanks for sharing! xx

      2. That’s a bit of a problem with these ones! I think most micro glitter shadows (most UD products) have the ability to have fall out! But despite that aspect this palette is pretty great ๐Ÿ™‚ & thank you for stopping by & the lovely comments ๐Ÿ™‚ xoxox

  9. 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

    1. 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! <3 I can't wait to share some makeup looks with this bad boy <3 xoxoxo

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

      1. 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

      2. Awww again congrats on the move ๐Ÿ’— ๐Ÿ™‚ and if you do happen to have a lil cash lying around I recommend this be the first purchase ๐Ÿ˜€ xoxox
