There has been so much controversy on the internet about this palette and I was really unsure whether or not I actually wanted to buy it, but, knowing me, I was a sucker for the how beautiful the shadows looked and honestly, I do not regret buying this!
This palette contains amber-hued neutrals – including warm browns, burnt oranges and rich siennas. Urban Decay has slain the colour selection in this palette. These are some of the most beautiful warm tones I’ve ever used and these warm toned shadows will definitely look good on all different skin tones!
There’s a mix of mattes and shimmers; seven mattes and five shimmers to be exact, there are so many combinations that would look so good together. (I’ll do a tutorial using this palette on a separate post).
- Ounce (ivory shimmer)
- Chaser (light nude matte)
- Sauced (soft terra-cotta matte)
- Low Blow (brown matte)
- Lumbre (copper shimmer w/gold pearl shift)
- He Devil (burnt red matte)
- Dirty Talk (metallic burnt red)
- Scorched (metallic deep red w/gold micro-shimmer)
- Cayenne (deep terra-cotta matte)
- En Fuego (burgundy matte)
- Ashes (deep reddish-brown matte)
- Ember (deep metallic copper-burgundy)
Each shade is creamy and blendable and the shimmery shades give a beautiful shine! There was a massive dispute on the internet about how these eyeshadows were ashy – which is not true! Each eyeshadow has incredible pigmentation.
I love the packaging! It is similar to the other Naked palettes – a slim rectangle. However, I find this to be a lot more sturdy than the other palettes’ packagings, the lid has a double layer with embossed writing on the top, it looks so beautiful and honestly, the large mirror inside is my favourite aspect.
The palette does come with a brush, which does a decent job of applying the eyeshadows. The slim end is for application and blending into the crease and a fatter end for blending.
Overall, I love this palette so far, bare in mind, I did only purchase this recently so I’m definitely going to be playing around with this a lot for the next few weeks.
Hope you found this helpful! ^-^
