Urban Decay Smoky Eyes Palette

If you're into creating easy, fuss-free smokey eyes then this palette is one to look out for. I've been a fan of Urban Decay ever since I first picked up their naked palettes years ago, and they've been one of my favourite beauty brands since. I find their products to be extremely versatile, something that you won't find in other brands and can't duplicate easily.

The smoky eyes palette contains 9 brand new shades that have never been featured by Urban Decay before. For me, that was a big selling point because some popular colours have been used in palettes before. The shades are overall pretty neutral, with a couple of dark shades that are perfect 'smoky eye' colours. I like that this palette includes some good lighter matte colours and some shimmer shades to balance out the palette. My favourite shades are high, radar, smolder & whiskey.

What I love about this palette is that you can easily transform your look from day to night. The lighter eyeshadows are perfect for a neutral day time look, then you can also amp up your make up for the evening with the darker colours. The formula of these eyeshadows are long lasting and I haven't seen any fallout yet. Whenever I'm doing a smoky eye, I would recommend to do the eye make up first before the base to prevent any fall out and ruining the base products.

In comparison to the other naked palettes, I'd say the packaging and overall quality of the Smoky Eyes palette is pretty good. Although I do prefer some of warmer colours from the other palettes, I think this palette is ideal for a smokey eye. The packaging is also a hard case which is ideal to travel with. This palette and the naked 2 palette are my two my favourites.

The Smoky Eyes Palette is availble in the UK here (on sale!), here and here and in the US at my favourite place, Sephora.
