For the longest time, I put off getting this palette because I refused to give into the hype, and also I thought “well I never use those kind of shades so it’s not for me anyway.”
As usual, I was wrong. After playing around with more reddish tone eyeshadows, I found I really love how they look against my green eyes, and as I have every other Naked Palette, AND I had a 15% off code, I gave in, and now am the proud owner of a new Naked Palette. Wooooooops.
I put this delivery on my Instagram story (follow me, @curiousginger) and thought, I may as well write a blog post about my initial thoughts. At the time of writing, I’ve only used this about twice!
I’m a huge fan of the Urban Decay Naked range, I have all the palettes, and they are by far my favourite to use. The eyeshadows in this palette are of the same quality, so if you’ve ever used Urban Decay shadows before, you know what you’re getting into. Some of the more shimmery shades do have a bit of fall out, but it’s easily gotten rid of. All the shades are so pigmented and beautiful!
You get 12 eyeshadows, plus a double ended brush, which is fairly standard for these types of palettes from Urban Decay.

As you can see, it is a very red toned palette, which I think is so cool and very different to other palettes I own. I feel like there could have maybe been another lighter shimmery colour, and perhaps a black, but that’s just me being picky- and I do really love all the shades.
So far I think my favourites are Lumbre, Scorched, and Ashes, but as I’ve said I have only used this twice at the moment so I’m excited to give it more of a try!
I’m glad I got this palette, I think it’s going to be really fun creating different types of looks with! If like me at first, red toned eyeshadows really intimidate you, just remember you can wipe it off if it looks crappy (it probably won’t) and it’s just fun to try different things now and then! Experiment! Go crazy….
That’s all from me! I’m excited to give this a go!
