The Urban Decay pallets have a mixed review of being both amazing and over rated. I must admit I never found the original palettes interesting enough to justify spending out on a neutral set of colours but when I found out they were releasing a smokey set I really wanted it.
I tend to wear a smokey eye as my day to day look, I love quite dark striking colours so I need something with a lot of colour pay off which this has. I love the way these blend so well and are very easy to use, there is a good range of both matte and shimmery shades in both warm and cool tones.
I really love the brush that comes with this, the larger end is soft and good for applying colour to a large area and blending it perfectly, the smaller end is better for the inner corners and applying a concentrated amount of colour to a smaller space.
Standard colour swatches, although you can hardly see the lighter shades on my pale skin, they are fantastic little colours for highlighters.
I love how easy the colours go on, the staying power is really good and even on the days I can't be bothered to use primer they still stay very much in place
In my opinion this is the best of the Naked series so far!
