It’s here! It landed in the UK on counters and I have one! We’ve all been excited about this palette for months.
So, what’s it like?
I love the packaging, it’s much sturdier and heavier than the previous Naked palettes and has a magnetic closure. It’s actually even more beautiful than we’ve come to expect from UD – they’re going to find it hard to follow this one! It is a bit big to take out and about with you though.
The shadows themselves are, for me, a little bit chalky (particularly the mattes) and do produce fallout depending on your brushes so it’s worth doing your eyes before your foundation with this one. The colours though are a gorgeous array of deep but still neutral shades. There are some shades I am totally in love with, those being ‘Password’ which is an absolutely perfect contour shade, ‘Armor’ which is probably the most glittery shade in the whole palette and ‘Smolder’ with it’s delicious plummy undertone. I love that there’s a lot of matte going on in this palette, matte shadows are great for adding depth to the eye and are especially handy if you have hooded eyes as you don’t want to draw attention to the hood by covering it in glitter.
Unlike previous Naked palettes this one comes with a little step-by-step guide to producing a couple of different eye looks using the shades in the palette.
Did you get a ‘Naked Smoky’ palette straight away or are you waiting to see how other people get on with it first?
