Urban Decay has done it again with the perfect must have eye shadow palette – Urban Decay Naked Smoky Palette.

Just when I thought I was fulfilled with the Urban Decay Naked Palette, 1, 2 and 3, word hit the street a few months ago that Urban Decay was launching Naked Palette no 4. Anxiously awaiting news of the new palette, the Urban Decay Naked Smoky Palette has finally landed at Nail That Accent headquarters (squeals!). image1 (4)

Urban Decay Naked Smoky Palette comes with 12 sultry, smokey neutral eyeshadow shades, the perfect double ended brush and a detailed lookbook to help you create 4 different looks.

The 12 shades include 3 exclusive shades from past palettes and 9 never before seen shades.urban decay smokey palette open

The 12 shadows are organized by finish from the most shimmery microglitters to satin to matte shades. The case itself is heavy duty plastic with a floating smoke effect and gunmetal ‘NAKED’ embossed on the front of the palette. The Urban Decay Naked Smoke Palette also has a full sized mirror, making on-the-go application a cinch. With a magnetic closure, the case conveniently protects the shades from coming loose when you throw the palette in your bag.

Let’s take a closer look.

High This sparkly blush champagne is probably one of my favourites in the collection. The colour payoff is intense and this makes the perfect blending shadow.

Dirtysweet More golden than HIGH, another beautiful champagne microglitter eyeshadow.

Radar This golden brown probably has the least amount of colour payoff, but it’s a perfect blending shade.

Armor Another beauty, this shade has a lot of warmth to it and is much warmer than it appears in the palette.

These 4  beautiful neutral shades above look fabulous on their own for a a neutral smokey look.

We’re now getting into the real smokes of the palette.

Slanted Another favourite in the palette, this intense shimmery grey has a slight purplish tint to it depending on how the light hits it.

Dagger A dark cool grey is perfect for creating a smoky eye.

Black Market Because every smoky palette needs the perfect black. Layer this on for an intense evening eye, or dampen your liner brush and use this as a liner in the day.

Smolder One word – STUNNING. The perfect eggplant shade for fall.

Over to the mattes. These shades are slightly chalky for my liking, but the colour payoff is still quite intense.

Password A warm taupey grey, this is almost the exact colour of my dining room! I’m in love with this shade.

Whiskey The perfect brown with the right amount of warmth.

Combust A neutral shade that’s perfect as a base or to create a lighter more natural smoky eye. This shade is a little chalky.

Thirteen Perfect for under the brow, a warm and creamy white.

As with Urban Decay Naked Palette’s 1-3, Urban Decay Naked Smoky Palette does not disappoint. Intense pigments, perfect microglitter and fantastic colour payoff (made even more intense with an eyeshadow primer), Urban Decay Naked Smoke Palette is a must-have for any beauty addict.

The Urban Decay Naked Smoky Palette is available at Sephora and select Shoppers Drug Marts ($64 CAD/ $54 USD).

    This is a no go for me – I only wear matte shadows now and on top of that, this collection has too many blue/purples for me – I have not touched blue eye shadow since the early 60s!
