In case you missed it, I did a Facebook Live video in the PhyrraNyx group demoing the Light Medium Shift palette on me and swatching both palettes. Watch here.

This is currently available at Sephora.

The packaging is fantastic. I love the design. It’s sturdy but lightweight enough for travel. It has two completely separate compartments – one for the cream products and one for the powder. This is my preference. There’s a mirror for each side. You get 4 powders and 5 creams.

The Naked Skin Shapeshifter brush has a very thin fan brush on one end and a rounded contour on the other. It’s not a shape I normally use for contouring but it does do a good job of blending out both cream and powder contour products. I tested it out with this palette. The highlighter side is a little thin for my taste, but works well with a powder highlight.

In the Light Medium palette, I can make all of the shades work on my skintone if I use some of them as eyeshadows. In particular,  for pale skin like mine, I think all the shades work for their intended purpose except the powder highlighter. It’s just too dark on me as a highlight. As I mentioned above, this shade makes a great lid color for a quick neutral look.

Both Dark Contour and Medium Contour are super dark on me. They could also work as eyeshadows.

Pearl Highlighter is a gorgeous blush on my pale skin. It’s light a softer version of Urban Decay Score – a pinky peach with gold shift.

I can’t really speak to how well the Medium Dark palette works on other skintones.

Today I'm sharing the new Urban Decay Naked Skin Shapeshifter Palette with you. Urban Decay sent me these palettes. Shapeshifter comes in two different shades. Light Medium Shift is ideal for .5 through 7.0. Medium Dark Shift is ideal for 6.0 - 12.0.

The Urban Decay Naked Skin Shapeshifter Palette is a hybrid palette that is supposed to let you easily highlight, contour, and color correct. It’s also supposed to be great for travel with its compact size. I think it does exactly what Urban Decay claims.

If you are pale like me and open to using 2 of the shades as eyeshadows, this might be a great palette for you. If you’re paler than I am, you may want to swatch this in store to see if it will work for you. I think it will work for most light to light-medium skintones.

  • I think I’ll be passing on this, as I wouldn’t get enough use out of the creams. I do really like that they separated them from the powders, though.
