Hello, I hope you are all having a fab day! For Christmas last year I got the Naked Cherry palette, I have never owned a Naked palette so was looking forward to trying this one out!
The 12 shades include:
Hot Spot – ivory matte
Caution – soft neutral beige matte
Bang Bang – a shimmering pink with gold shift and iridescent micro-sparkle
Feelz – soft dusty rose matte
Juicy – soft warm peach
Turn On – a pale metallic rose shimmer
Ambitious – metallic rose copper
Bing – a deep mauve matte
Devilish – reddish plum matte
Young Love – metallic cranberry
Drunk Dial – deep metallic burgundy
Privacy – deep brownish-plum matte
For £42 the 12 pan palette is described on UrbanDecay.co.uk as;
These 12 all-new shades include of-the-moment soft mattes and sizzling metallics, ranging from creamy ivory and shimmering rose gold to the most intense black cherry. We’re addicted to Bing—a deep mauve matte that is right on trend. And we can’t get enough of Drunk Dial, a shimmery metallic burgundy that takes smoky looks to a smoldering climax.
Because serious staying power and shadow that doesn’t flake or fade out on you are non-negotiables, each shade is made from our mind-blowing formula that gives its velvety texture, rich color and blendability.
Adorned with a row of metallic cherries, the crimson compact includes a full-size mirror and double-sided brush—ready for precision application on one end and seamless blending on the other. Whether you’re at the office, in between flights or getting ready at the apartment, Naked Cherry spices up everything from chill neutrals and sexy shimmers to super smoky eyes.
The first thing about this palette is the packaging, it’s everything! It ties in with the palette shades. I can’t compare it to the other Naked palettes, but it’s really sturdy. Plus it comes with a double ended brush, which I love as Urban Decay brushes are really good! One end is a pencil brush and the other a fluffy brush.
When it comes to application the first time I used this palette it blended out like a dream, the shades were really pigmented and I loved how the makeup turned out. However when I used it a few more times I found the shades would apply patchily onto my eyes when they blended out. The first time I thought it might be how I blended it out (even though I did the same technique I always use). So I wiped the makeup off and tried again, using a different brush, but the same thing happened, the shadows blended out patchy.
So I kept trying the palette and even though the shimmers are stunning and beautiful for creating a halo eye or adding shimmer to a smoky eye. The mattes either blend out like a dream or are a bit patchy. But I still think this is a pretty palette and one for you if you love theses kinds of tones!
