The key to nailing a sought-after and elusive eye look? Naked Smoky—loaded with ALL the essentials you need for the perfect neutral smoky eye. A true range of shades. Perfect brushes and detailed tutorials.
I reach for this more than you might think. I don't do smoky eyes, I just don't, and lots of grey/black eyeshadow overwhelms my pale blue eyes and makes my light NW20 skin look like I've been in a nasty fight.
But. Apart from the middle blacks and greys, this is a great neutral palette. The outside six shades are beautiful. Dirtysweet makes my blue eyes pop, High and Radar are almost as good. Combust is amazing as a (my) skintone transition between crease and brow, Thirteen a matte highlight, Whiskey a workhorse matte brown. I barely touch the others, I'm afraid, although they're good quality.
Great durable packaging, fantastic brush, overall excellent quality packaging. My only problem is the shades I barely use (although the clue is in the name here).

The Naked Smoky palette is the fourth instalment in the Naked range by Urban Decay. With 12 shades and 9 brand new never before seen shades and 3 exclusive shades from previous palettes from matte, satin and sparkle finishes. This is the perfect palette for creating that never out of style iconic smoky eye look. There are so many possibilities to create endless eye looks. The shades are extremely versatile and all work well together. The palette is beautiful with a hard plastic outer packaging with a floating smoke appearance, included is a new exclusive professional dual ended brush with fluffy bristles on one end, perfect for blending and then a tapered smudge brush, more tightly compact bristles allowing you to precisely pack on the colour or smudge out the product on the under eyes for that grungy undone look. With natural shimmers, warm bronzes, taupes, purples, greys and a black. Create the ultimate come hither sultry eye look with ease using the shadows in this palette. I would say that this palette is the most versatile as there are warmer and cooler shades making for a perfect travel essential. The shadows are extremely pigmented as always and the blend-ability factor is so velvety. A fool proof way to creating some dramatic eyes. Everything you need in one palette. I have included some swatches in one of the pictures below so that you can get a good idea of the shade range. All colours are listed below with a breakdown. Highly recommended for someone who wants 1 palette that covers a multitude of looks.

I adore this palette! The colours are very vibrant, blend beautifully, and work really well together. The silver shades are so beautiful and stay very well. All of the shades are very pigmented with minimal fallout and last a really long time. I always reach for this when I want a more dramatic look.

Love all of the shadows in this pallete. Got it for Christmas in 2016 and for a while it was the only pallete I used. It's great for creating every day looks and more intense and dramatic looks with the good range of shades which are all nicely pigmented

Got this beauty for £23 in Debenhams and what a bargain. All shades are beautiful and I will use everyone in the palette. Colour payoff is amazing too ! Would deffo purchase again even at full price. Prefer this over my naked 3 palette 😍

I recently brought this half price from House Of Fraser and I’m in love 😍 the eyeshadows can be used as a mixture from day to night so it’s the perfect palette if you like nudes and smokey eyes. It’s a great starter for anyone just getting in to make up to practice with. It comes with a leaflet inside with lots of tips and eye looks.

✨This palette is absolutely gorgeous... the colour pigmentation is fantastic and they blend extremely well with colours contained within and also with other palettes too. I’m not too keen on the application with the brush this palette comes with - I always use my Spectrum brushes which I find works much better - which I feel should be nicer for the price tag of £40. The amount of looks that can be created is fab as all of the colours go really well together. The application is smooth and easy and great for all levels of experience. Beauty haul must have!

I received this palette as a birthday present off a friend (I know she's a good'n). The eyeshadows are really pigmented and I love the shades. I recently looked at getting another palette, however I was completely put off by the price. As good as it is, there are still better eyeshadow palettes available and at a much more reasonable cost.

I absolutely love this palette, gone through 2 already and now on my 3rd, I love all the colours, especially the matte shade, you can create a few smokey eye looks from this one palette and no fallout at all and the colours are so easy to blend, would definitely recommend.

Personally, I think this palette is not worth the money, as the pigmention of these eye shadows when they are applied to the skin are non exsistent, when you swatch the shadows onto your hands they are so creamy and pigmented but when you start to use a brush the pigmentation is gone! It isn't worth £38, I wouldn't buy this product again because I just don't think it is worth it, however I do believe the naked original palette is a lot better than the smoky palette. I wouldn't say there is a huge difference but I definitely see a difference in the two, but that is just my personal opinion.

I love this eyeshadow, it's easy to blend and if you are not confident at doing your make up its great as it's easy to use. Just match similar colours for your Base and then add a darker colour to the outer edge - magic! Easy! only bad point is the fall out is quite a bit so I havexpect to clean up my cheeks after.

Who doesn't love a flawless smokey eye right?? I'm telling you, with flawless eyeshadows it's possible. Right pigmentation is key, because u don't want eyeshadow falling on ur cheeks during day, right? So u only use a small amount, and with this you can! I love, love love it! So worth the money X

I love colours in this palette, they are rich, creamy long lasting and really easy to blend, however after owning all of the naked palettes this is my least favourite and I only use a selection of the colours. It is a must have palette for anyone's make up kit even if it's just for a small selection of colours.

Some beautiful colours in here, as usual they are creamy and blendable like every other naked palette.I wouldnt buy this again, simply because i wouldnt have to. I dont reach for it as much as i reach for the original naked palette. The packaging blows the other 3 palettes out the water, but it is extremely cool toned and i prefer warm tones. Its still a must have for any kit! Beautiful product.
