Urban Decay Naked Smoky Eyeshadow PaletteUrban Decay Naked Smoky Eyeshadow Palette ($54.00 for 0.60 oz.) is a set of cooler-toned shades ranging from beige to black with a definite slant towards grayish tones. The eyeshadows are arranged by finish from most shimmery to least shimmery. The formula feels different than previous Urban Decay releases; it feels noticeably drier and almost chalky to me, especially in the more satin/matte shades, and the press feels firmer. In a way, they remind me of the dryness I felt in the holiday palettes of last year, but the firmer press resulted in less excess powder kicked up all over the place when used and less fall out during application. They almost feel more like Too Faced or LORAC eyeshadows, though LORAC has a silkier feel overall. This texture made it particularly difficult to use them without primer, and I've been able to use the prior releases reasonably well (some better than others) without primer (and in general, I can do so with the majority of Urban Decay's eyeshadows from the permanent line). For summer, the brand added several new brightly-colored eyeshadows that I was easily able to use without primer (see this post), but this was not workable on bare skin. The texture of these is nothing like the individual shades launched for summer and don't really feel like any past iteration of their formula. Whether or not it is accurate, the texture and performance feels like a cheapening of the Urban Decay eyeshadow formula on the whole but at the very least, I've lost a lot of faith in their ability to put together a high-quality, high-value palette based on the recent palette releases.

Highly pigmented, pretty and wearable. The brush is very good for the lower lash line and the inner corner. I just wish i used it more often.

I know this has had some pretty mixed reviews but I really like Naked Smoky and, from the first time I saw it, I thought I would. I don't find the fallout to be nearly as bad as I thought it would be (and there's nothing in here that's as troublesome as Sidecar from the first Naked palette - I fell in love with that shadow but could not use it because of the dreadful fallout, no matter how I applied it). I do love the lighter and brighter shades in this and it's nice to have a few mattes to pair with the more shimmery shades. I missed Armor in the first Vice palette so I'm really happy to have it. Combust is a great transition/subtle crease/blending out colour and I simply LOVE Password - that shadowy taupe-grey shade is so versatile. I like the solid, substantial packaging of this. It's similar to that used on Naked on the Run and it looks elegant and sophisticated with a bit of edginess thrown in.
