Urban Decay Streak Naked Flushed Palette

Urban Decay Streak Naked Flushed Palette ($30.00 for 0.49 oz.) just debuted on the brand’s website and will be available at all the other retailers later this month/early June. It features a bronzer, highlighter, and blush in a slim compact. The texture of the bronzer and highlighter were good, while the blush was powdery and didn’t apply evenly. I wish the highlighter was just a bit less metallic, as it tended to emphasize skin imperfections and enlarge pores.

Urban Decay Strip Naked Flushed Palette

Urban Decay Strip Naked Flushed Palette ($30.00 for 0.49 oz.) just debuted on the brand’s website and will be available at all the other retailers later this month/early June. I’m not in love with the texture that Urban Decay has in their cheek palettes, as there’s always something off about them. Strip didn’t impress me, as two shades were problematic. The best shade was the bronzer, but if you aren’t a fan of more shimmery bronzers, that will likely make this an automatic pass.
