Swatches of the new Urban Decay Naked Smoky palette and comparison review


I just reviewed the Naked Smoky palette by Urban Decay. This new Naked Smoky palette has a nice range of cooler toned shades. When compared to the other Naked palettes it’s closer in color tone to the Naked 2 which also leans towards cool tones. Cool tone shades are my favorite kind but that’s just personal preference and it also depends on skin tone.

The Naked 1 or the Original Naked palette is more of a warm toned palette and a cult classic now. The Naked 3 palette is all about rose tones, and rose golds a popular color indeed but one that can be a little more difficult to pull off as any rose or leaning on red tones can tend to make the eye look a bit tired.

Finally let’s talk about the packaging. I know I am a sucker for packaging and have been known on a couple occasions to actually purchase an item just because of it’s gorg packaging! I shouldn’t admit to  it, but hey being real here. So the Naked Smoky has great packaging in my opinion as it is a durable, light-weight plastic case with a magnetic closure (something I dig). It’s very practical to travel with as it is sleek and has a very large very usable mirror. But the best perk for me is the translucent quality of the design on the palette giving it … you guessed it, a smokey effect!

Before Naked Smoky came out, my favorite was Naked 2.

So which one is your favorite Naked Palette ?
