All 4 Urban Decay Naked Palettes: Swatch & Chat


Hi guys! Today I wanted to share with you swatches from all 4 Urban Decay Naked Palettes and then chat a bit about them. As you could guess from this post, and previous posts, I am a huge fan of the Urban Decay Naked series. I only own the full-size palettes, I do not own the smaller ones. I find they are great because they are quality shadows and there is something for everyone. Each palette has it’s own theme, so while you may not like them all, there is likely one that would suit your needs.

Urban Decay Naked Palette

Naked 1

L to R: Virgin, Sin, Naked, Sidecar, Buck, Half Baked, Smog, Darkhorse, Toasted, Hustle, Creep and Gunmetal

This is the original Naked palette and the one that started it all. It is the warm toned palette of the bunch. I like to use this one particularly for a no-make up look, but I do also like the shimmery tan shades as well. I like to use it for when I want a very neutral look. My favourites of this palette are: Sin, Naked, Sidecar, Buck and Hustle

Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette

L to R: Foxy, Half Baked, Bootycall, Chopper, Tease, Snakebite, Suspect, Pistol, Verve, YDK, Busted and Blackout

L to R: Foxy, Half Baked, Bootycall, Chopper, Tease, Snakebite, Suspect, Pistol, Verve, YDK, Busted and Blackout

The Naked 2 Palette is the cool-toned one of the series. This is probably the palette I use the most as I use it for my everyday basic makeup look. My favourite shadows in this palette are: Bootycall, Chopper (looks amazing all by itself), Tease and Busted.

Urban Decay Naked 3 Palette

Naked 3

L to R: Strange, Dust, Burnout, Limit, Buzz, Trick, Nooner, Liar, Factory, Mugshot, Darkside and Blackheart

This is the rose-gold toned palette of the Naked series. I love it for soft and feminine pink looks. I love this palette, it is stunning, but I probably use it the least of the of the Naked palettes. That is only because I use it when I’m feeling like doing something pink, whereas the other two, I could use on any occasion. My favourites are: Strange, Buzz, Factory and Darkside.

Urban Decay Smoky Palette

Naked Smoky

L to R: High, Dirtysweet, Radar, Armor, Slanted, Dagger, Black Market, Smolder, Password, Whiskey, Combust and Thirteen

The Urban Decay Smoky Palette is the newest addition to the Naked series. It features the essentials for doing either a dramatic or more neutral smoky eye. The point of the palette is that you can do an every day smoky look that is appropriate for day time wear. I haven’t worn it enough yet (as I’ve only had it for about a month) to have favourites that I wear the most. Based on the swatches alone, I really like: High, Armor, Slanted, Dagger, and Smoulder. Those are the shades I go for when I pick this palette up.

Everyday Makeup Routine

Hi guys! Today I’m going to show you guys my every day makeup routine. I went to a family BBQ last night and I wanted to do something basic on my eyes and do a bright lip. I generally change up my makeup on a daily basis, but this is a look I find myself frequently going back to. It’s so versatile and you can pair it with virtually any lipstick.

Let’s get into it!

This look really was perfect for the BBQ. It is simple but summery enough to compliment the warm sunny weather. It was a great time, it really is nice getting the whole family together!

I own all of the Naked palettes (Smoky Palette is on it’s way from Sephora’s website!) and I really do love them all, but I find the Naked 2 palette is the one that I reach for the most. I use the Naked 1 palette if I am going for a no-makeup look, the Naked 2 palette for my everyday basic routine and the Naked 3 palette when I want to do a soft and feminine pink look.
