Urban Decay is one of those makeup brands that have experienced a meteoric rise in the last few years. Although the company was founded almost 20 years ago, it was after the acquisition by a beauty industry veteran L’Oreal that Urban Decay experienced a real boom. Today, Urban Decay and, in particular, one of their products – Naked Smoky Eyeshadow Palette – have become a staple in the makeup industry.
A famous makeup artist and vlogger Wayne Goss said that this palette is “a product worth the hype”, while another beauty vlogger Chloe Morello exclaims that she “absolutely loves all of the colors”. The Naked Smoky Eyeshadow Palette comprises of twelve colors, from mattes to satins – High (champagne shimmer with micro-glitter), DirtySweet (medium bronze), Radar (metallic taupe with iridescent micro-glitter), Armor (metallic silver-taupe with tonal sparkle), Slanted (light metallic gray), Dagger (medium charcoal with micro-shimmer), Black Market (jet-black satin), Smolder (deep plum-taupe), Password (cool taupe matte), Whiskey (rich brown matte), Combust (soft pink-taupe) and Thirteen (light beige satin).
These wonderful, highly pigmented colors compliment all skin shades – from the lightest to the darkest. The Naked Smoky Eyeshadow Palette comes with all the essentials that you need for the perfect smoky eye including a double-ended brush (with a Tapered Crease Brush on one end and a Smoky Smudger Brush on the other) that makes application effortless. If you are somewhat clueless about getting that smoky eye effect right, Urban Decay has enclosed a lookbook with detailed instructions. Last but not least, the Naked Smoky eyeshadows have a great staying power and are super easy to blend.
