If you thought you didn’t need another palette, think again. And this one you’ll actually use. Promise.
There was a global day of mourning when last year Urban Decay revealed the news that they were discontinuing their bestselling originalNaked Palette.
It had been the palette that incited a worldwide obsession with the modest beauty staple. Instagram was bereft. Heartbroken. Would there ever be another suits-all palette offering neutral, wearable shades ever again?
Oh yes. The Urban Decay Naked Honey palette is a sumptuous collection of 12 golden shades featuring a mix of their classic matte and shimmery shades in the buttery, blendable formulation that the brand is known for.
Even with my years as a beauty editor I still find applying eyeshadow pretty intimidating, but this palette pulls all the appropriate tones together in one easy-to-use compact. I immediately honed in on Honey, an intense gold metallic shade perfect for gliding over lids to create a 70s disco eye.
For a more paired down vibe, try Sting, a warm matte brown perfect for fashioning a classic smokey eye. All colours have an incredible, deep pigment making them easy to blend, but the big selling point is - like the original - how the simple, timeless shades can be worn day or night.
This means you’ll get a lot more use from it, rather than palettes that include primary colours in the line up. Red eyeshadow anyone? Thought not.
Naked Honey may be £42 but this palette will see you through the rest of 2019 and then some.
As with most of the brand’s palettes, there is forever a great demand - according to Cosmetify.com Urban Decay sits at the top of the most searched-for beauty brand list, which usually leads to it selling out, so you’d better move fast.
