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.

Strip Bronzer is described as a “deep bronze shimmer bronzer.” It’s a medium-dark, subtly red-toned brown with gold shimmer and a frosted finish. It’s shimmery enough to impart a soft glow to the skin, but it doesn’t seem to emphasize my pores (just maintains the status quo). It had good color payoff, and the texture was soft without being powdery. The color lasted for eight hours on me, which is about average. Tom Ford Beauty Unabashed Bronzer (LE, $90.00) is lighter. Too Faced Sun Bunny #1 (P) is similar. Wet ‘n’ Wild Bikini Contest (P, $3.99) is less shimmery. Disney by Sephora Golden Sands (LE, $55.00) is yellower. Urban Decay Baked (P, $26.00) is slightly lighter. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Strip Highlighter is described as a “golden shimmer highlighter.” It’s a light-medium, golden brown with larger, gold sparkle and shimmer. It doesn’t bind together well and almost seems like a loose highlighter. It tends to catch on any baby hairs you may have on your face, and it doesn’t adhere to the skin, so it travels to parts unknown. It also emphasizes pores, unfortunately. The sheen was visible for six and a half hours. Too Faced Snow Bunny (P) is less sparkly. MAC Whisper of Gilt (LE, $30.00) is lighter, less sparkly. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Strip Blush is described as a “deep mauve blush.” It’s a medium, rosy plum with subtle warm undertones and a matte finish. It had so-so color payoff, while the texture felt soft, it also seemed powdery and didn’t bind together well, so it sheered out easily. This shade stayed on the skin for seven hours. Divergent Misty Rose (LE) is darker, pinker. Hourglass Mood Exposure (P, $35.00) is warmer. Tarte Elevated (LE, $26.00) is cooler-toned. Tarina Tarantino Neopolitan Lane (P, $25.00) is darker.

Wow that is depressing! I got the Native palette and I adore it–it’s perfect for paler skin.

You look so gorgeous! I need to check out that eyeliner! Sad that these didn’t perform well for you! πŸ™

First of all, looking gorgeous Christine, love your eye makeup and lip gloss.
Second of all, can you hear that pitter patter sound? Its my feet, running for the hills! Thanks for the heads up..

I get why you’re saying to pass – but OMG they look so gorgeous on you!
I can’t tell if the product is good, or if you just make everything look good!

The blush looks like it’ll be a little too light for me. The bronzer and highlighter looks so perfect though! They’re beautiful!

I really like the concept of these bronzer/blush/highlighter in one, but the UD Flushed palettes have been so consistently disappointing! I was hoping they’d be more like the Naked Basics palettes in terms of quality!

Maybe I’m just getting weird in my old age, but I’m so over overly sexualized cosmetic names. “Strip naked” is such a turn off, that even if I liked the colors, I wouldn’t buy it. Am I alone here?

The palette is “Naked Flushed Palette” and the shade is “Strip,” so it’s not actually “Strip Naked,” but it’s possible that “Strip” (which is used throughout their range – used to have an eyeshadow by the same name) still has the same meaning.

I understand that is a shade/palette compounded name, but with another palette in the range called “streak” I’m doubting that it’s accidental entendre.

I really like the idea of these face palettes – small and compact and with 3 products most people use – but the execution is pitiful. UD is capable of much better (mind you, I don’t think I own a single blush, highlighter or bronzer by them so perhaps I am wrong in that regard).

Reviews are really positive on Sephora, and in general, it seems like a lot like the trios. I haven’t liked any of the four they’ve released much myself, unfortunately!

The bronzer shade looks really pretty on you, especially with the eye look! πŸ™‚

Still, for the price of these palettes, not so sure it’s worth it because the blush and the highlight don’t seem to perform very well.
