This Summer, it’s about to get a little smoky! Releasing on July 8th, is the brand new Urban Decay Naked Smoky palette. Gracing our presence with 12 beautiful shades ranging in finishes, it’s safe to say everyone is going absolutely CRAZY over this palette!
Naked Smoky comes in a sturdy plastic translucent brown packaging and has the most beautiful smoke print on the cover.
Inside there is a full size mirror, 12 eyeshadows and a brand new dual sided brush.
I love that they switched up the brush for this palette. On one side is a large fluffy blending brush and on the other side is a nice short pencil brush. Perfect for creating depth and really getting a precise application!
Inside the palette you will find a really great mix of shades and finishes. I LOVE that they categorized them. The first four are all shimmery sheen shades with slight glitter, the next 4 are satin shades with no added glitters and the last group are all mattes. There are NINE brand new, never before seen shades and 4 re-promotes from various palettes.
High – Champagne Shimmer with micro-glitter (New)
DirtySweet – Medium Bronze (New)
Radar – Metallic Taupe with micro-glitter (Vice 2)
Armor – Metallic Silver taupe with sparkle (Vice)
Slanted – Light metallic grey (New)
Dagger – Medium charcoal with microshimmer (New)
Black Market – Jet Black Satin (Vice)
Smolder – Deep Purple / Taupe (New)
Password – Cool Taupe matte (New)
Whiskey – Rich Brown matte (New)
Combust – Soft Pink matte (New)
Thirteen – Light Beige matte (New)
To be quite honest with you, this palette is everything. The range of shades is on point and you can create SO much more than a smoky eye with this palette! I have been rocking the first 4 shades on their own and I am in LOVE! They were all so buttery and pigmented and easy to blend.
I do wish that Smolder was a little more purple and a little less grey toned, but it is what it is and I still love it! Black Market was as black as night and so incredibly smooth. The packaging is one of their best yet and I hope they will continue to use this style. The magnetic closure feature is fantastic.
What are your thoughts on the Naked Smoky palette? Will you be pulling an all nighter to grab it on July 8th?

YES MAAM! WANT, NEED, WILL GET! It is life!
I was totally hoping you were going to say you hated it, and that you wanted to ship it to me immediately 🙂 I am a collector of makeup so I will buy this just because I have everything else they make. It is a sick obsession hehe
OMGSH! I NEED this in my LIFE! I so wish they would push the release dates to June! I can’t handle waiting so long #beautyaddict! Great review! You have convinced me that I need this for my collection!
Lola Seicento says
OMG!!!!!!!!! Pure gorgeousness! I need this NOW! Your swatches are stunning!
I was surprised by how much I loved Smolder once I wore it. Initially I was sad that it wasn’t purple.
The colors in this palette are to die for!!
I haven’t been really interested in this palette. I guess because I already have so many UD palettes with same/similar shades. But the swatches do make it look quite nice.
Cindy Ingalls says
I really love this palette. Trying to be good and not buy it, but who knows what will happen on July 8th.
Yes I’m gonna need this now!!!!
I am in love with Smoulder so I guess I will be buying it
I am more inclined to purchase a palette like this because it comes with a very usable and professional brush. Double-ended, no less. Good job.
I thought I wouldn’t like or need this one.
I NEED THIS ONE!
I think I might be the only person who doesn’t own any UD palettes haha
This palette is PERFECTION. I couldn’t justify NAKED 1, 2, or 3, but this one. MUST HAVE!
Aleya Bamdad says

WOW Such a gorgeous palette!
Thanks for sharing your awesome review 🙂
This is going to be another huge hit for UD. I’m glad that it’s mostly new colors.

Fabulous 😀 I need the Smoky palette!
This packaging is glorious!
Brooke @ Blushing Noir says
Smolder just might be my favorite shadow on this Earth! LOVE!
I like that the palette is skewed more towards the cool tones, I think their previous palettes have been really warm toned!

I thought I wouldn’t want this…but the more reviews I see…the more I think I do!
Lisa Heath says
I’m gonna need this one too!
I haven’t decided yet if I want to get this one or not. I love the packaging, but I really wish there were more purples!
Laura (Mrslolalynn) says
I can’t WAIT for this palette!!!
I’ll absolutely be picking this up.
