Smoke Signals from Urban Decay
I’m SUPER excited to write this blog because, A) its makeup and, well, I’m obsessed; and B) I get to write the words (which of course makes it real, that’s the rules right? Say it out loud/write it down, its real!). I digress…….”Urban Decay have released a NEW PALETTE!!” Not just any palette, no it’s not NAKED3 , because let’s be honest, NAKED2 was a little underwhelming and felt a bit like it was just 1 hue away from the original NAKED palette.
Urban Decay have released……….. SMOKED
Yes I have MAC Cosmetics pumping through my veins, however, I do adore Urban Decay just as much and in particular, my Urban Decay NAKED palette. The trusty NAKED palette is the first thing I pack when travelling (heck it’s the ONLY palette I need to pack) and the first thing I reach for when I have little time to spend on my makeup but still want to create a simple smokey daytime eye in record time! So when UD announce they are releasing a new palette (released in the US/UK this week), with new colours inc. jewel toned hues no less, I’m excited!!
So, what does the Urban Decay SMOKED palette have to say for itself:
This is the smoky eye done the UD way: a true range of shades (Neutral mattes! Shimmering jewel tones!) for a range of smokey looks.
A “non Urban Decay Marketing speak” breakdown of each colour:
Kinky (a new soft ivory peach with a matte finish), Freestyle (a new light pantyhose nude with a matte finish), Mushroom (a repromoted warm gray with a shimmery finish – LOVE!!), Backdoor (I shall resist the urge to make a joke here……a new true dark brown with a matte finish), Blackout (a repromoted blackest black with a matte finish), Barlust (a new dark golden brown with a metallic finish), Rockstar (a repromoted deep aubergine with a shimmery finish), Evidence (a repromoted deep navy blue with a shimmery finish), Loaded (a repromoted deep emerald shimmer with a metallic base), Asphalt (a new deep gunmetal with silver micro glitter and a metallic base) and Perversion (a repromoted matte carbon black).
So , excited yet? I am!! Now to just get this bad boy in my hot lil hands. Well its on its way as I type this blog (thank you Nat – you little PR Guru – and fabulous makeup buying friend – you). I will be sure to blog swatches and give a full review the moment this palette arrives!
RRP around NZ$90
