Well I guess it’s about time I got into the real ins and outs of the latest Urban Decay Naked palette, the palette I really didn’t see coming. Although I do like plum tones, I’ve never really craved them enough to buy a big palette that was until Urban Decay made their mark. I’ve been loving Urban Decay palettes for what feels like forever so I put the *Cherry palette on my list pretty quickly and sure enough I was treated to it on my birthday.
Like any other Naked palette it includes 12 nicely sized shadow pans with a perfect mix of dark and light shades. This means there’s shades for multiple different looks depending on how you’re feeling. There’s also a wonderful mix of mattes, shimmers and metallics so you can play it safe or go completely wild.
Having tested the shadows I can really appreciate the formula of the metallic shades. The colour pay off is incredible and the shadows really pop when the light catches them. I will say that the first two shadows don’t feel as pigmented as other lighter shades in previous Urban Decay palettes but they aren’t bold colours anyway so I wouldn’t say this was much of an issue, the other shades are beautifully bold. Just like any Urban Decay palette the shadows blend effortlessly and need little tapping into the pans. The brush in this particular palette is a little different due to its small, dense brush at one end for precision and fluffy blender on the other. Both ends work well but they haven’t replaced my other brushes.
The design is flawless and well thought out with its large mirror, hard case and appealing 3D effect on the box. I have to admit I still reach for my Naked Heat palette more but I’m a warm-tone girl at heart. Other than that, I just can’t complain.
