Urban Decay Smoked Palette
Another "Naked" palette to add to the Urban Decays arsenal of eyeshadow palettes.

Product & Colour: 
This palette contains 4 mattes and 7 shimmer/metallic shades that are richly pigmented. They all blend beautifully together when working with these. The Jewell tone shades work best over a base to the the flash of metallic intensity you see in the pan.

The shades are:
Kinky is a pale, neutral beige with a matte finish, i similar to MAC Blanc Type is but lighter then UD Foxy.

Freestyle is a light camel peach with a matte finish.

Mushroom is a grey-brown taupe. Loved this shade since trying it in Alice in Wonderland palette. I work well with a number of other shades as it  not to cool or warm tone.

Backdoor is a muted  dark brown with a hint of grey in a matte finish.

Blackout is an true dark black with a matte finish. 

Barlust is a warm medium-dark brown with Shimmer.

Rockstar is a dark smoked red plum with shimmer. Identical to the eyeliner form Urban Decay.

Evidence is a dark navy blue with a metallic finish. This shade is very dupeable in an number of brands, Inglot, theBalm, Wet N Wild and Eve Pearl come to mind as it's a classic jewel tone blue.

Loaded is a blackened green with bright teal shimmer. theBalm Jealous Jordana is similar. 

Asphalt is a dark gunmetal grey with micro-shimmer. theBalm The Mistress/Inspirational is less shimmery and deeper grey.

Perversion eyeliner is a true black with a creamy glide/ finish.

Wear: I got about 6 to 8 hours wear on their own. (the shimmer one last longer)

Packaging: Cool black with rainbow shimmer fabric and a nice zipper that it functional and well made. The eyeshadows are house in a cardboard box make this palette really light wight.

This is a nice staple palette to have as the jewel tones makes this not a typical smokey eye look. That said you might find the shades redundant if you own a number of eyeshadows already as the shades them self are not that unique.


  1. I love these colors especially the 1st row!

    1. Yes the first row has alot of wearable daily shades in it that can be smoked out and compliment all skin tones. Most palette only compliment one range skins tones. ;)
