The new Urban Decay make-up palette that you will use every single day

Urban Decay Naked Honey Palette

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 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.
