After playing with the Naked Smoky palette for several weeks and using it in a lot of looks, I love a lot of things about it. I think you will love it if
- you want a cool toned palette
- you like greys and taupes
- you love Urban Decay
- you like matte and shimmer shades
- you love cruelty free makeup
I think you will want to skip it if
- you don’t like cool tones
- you don’t like greys and taupes
- you already have a lot of neutral palettes
For me, there are really only 2 shades in the Naked Smoky that I’m not fond of – Whiskey and Radar – the two browns. I feel like they just didn’t fit with the overall greys and taupes in the palette. And really, Dirtysweet – the soft gold – is on the warm side with this palette too, but I love golds.
The eyeshadow formula for some of the colors doesn’t feel the same as my eyeshadow singles from Urban Decay. Some of the colors that gave me trouble initially, like Password, were easier to work with after a few uses. They’re definitely harder in texture than my eyeshadow singles. There is also the issue that some of the glittery shades will give you fallout (or fall up, as I experienced) while blending the colors, so be sure to clean up after your application.
