I was all excited to be notified by Sephora that I qualified to order Urban Decay’s Naked Smoky Eyeshadow Palette. I was on it within minutes and pressed “order” while on my 15-minute break at work.
The palette arrived in just a couple of days. The next morning, I couldn’t wait to use it. I’ve used it a few times since and I have to tell you, I’m not that impressed. It’s just another eyeshadow palette. Meh.
I’ve tried using it three times now and nothing has thrilled me. I think I way over spent on this product. I’ll continue to use it from time to time because, after all, I did pay an arm and a leg for it.
The palette did come with a “how-to” diagram but I threw it away thinking that I knew how to apply my damned eyeshadow thank-you-very-much. Perhaps I should have kept it and given their technique a try. I don’t think it would have made much of a difference though.
I do like that it has a wide-variety of shades and it comes with a decent brush. But I could have purchased these colors anywhere. I normally put on my eyeshadow wet, or damp. I get my brush damp and then dab it in the eyeshadow. It goes on better this way and less mess. It also makes it more intense. **Mind you, not dripping wet… just wet the brush and then dab it on a paper towel to get off excess water before putting in the eyeshadow.
Urban Decay Smoky Naked Eyeshadow Palette
Urban Decay Smoky Naked Palette – 12 different colors ranging from nude to dark and creamy to sheen is what you get with this palette; golds, silvers, nudes, brunettes, and charcoals. So as far as variety goes, it does have that going for it. But other than that, it doesn’t do anything else for me. It would be good to travel with, just throw the palette in your makeup bag and you wouldn’t have to worry about bringing a bunch of different colors.
Anyway, yeah, I’m not that impressed with it. It’s okay. And I wish I hadn’t spent all that money on it.
I did find a different brand of eyeshadow that I really really like and I’ll write about it later.
Thanks for reading and show me your moxie!
