Let’s talk about a makeup palette today…shall we!?
I’m in love with makeup as you all know, but it’s been a while I haven’t tested any new products (skin issues you see…tch tch!) in the market, which means that I’m spending a lot more time going through the stash I already own.
This morning I came across an oldie-but-a-goodie…one of my most loved and cherished palettes of all times – the Urban Decay Naked Flushed.
If you’re an Urban Decay fan, then you’ll know very well that when UD launches a product in the market, the cult fan base listens…and doesn’t rest until it gets a hold of the product! Well, it was a similar story with this palette by Urban Decay … I saved for months & months to finally own this baby and let me tell you – it was well worth it!
Let’s jump right in then!
The Urban Decay Naked Flushed Palette is aesthetically presented and packaged, just like all of Urban Decay’s products, but what I LOVE about this one in particular is how dinky it is! ❤
The outer packaging is a very sturdy plastic and the palette comes with a full-sized mirror on the inside…hooray! I’ve dropped this baby a couple of times and as you can see, it’s still holding up pretty well, apart from some rugged edges ;P
The palette easily fits in the palm of my hand and is so sleek & compact that it takes no space whatsoever even in a slim clutch bag….perfect for those touch-ups’ on the go and evening out’s!
The cheek & face palette has a matte bronzer on the left, followed by the beautiful champagne colour highlight at the centre and a gorgeous, pigmented matte blush on the right end of this palette. You’ll see right off the bat that the largest pan is dedicated to the bronzer in this palette and the pans get smaller as we move towards the blusher.
Naked Flushed has the best matte bronzer i’ve used because it’s almost impossible to go overboard with this thing – trust me…. there’s never been a day I’ve ended up with muddy looking cheeks. …ugh!
The highlight shade is quite unique and beautiful too. Champagne with a peachy pink tint to it…it’s ideal for those who want the glow, but not the disco-ball effect! ;P
My favourite part though of it all is perhaps the rosy pink blush which has a hint of warmth and coral to it. You might think at first glance that this blush is loaded with shimmer, but it isn’t because when applied or swatched the blush is pretty much all-matte. Great colour pay-off and super easy blend-ability makes this a true winner in my books 🙂
Here’s a look at how the Urban Decay Naked Flushed Palette swatches:
Would I recommend the Urban Decay Naked Flushed Palette – ABSOLUTELY!
If you’re looking for a compact, do-it all kind of face & cheek palette for your handbag or when you’re on the go – this palette is perfect. The pans are decently sized and you can easily get a small face brush into each individual pan. The powder is finely-milled and very smooth in texture. I’ve also noticed minimal fallout from the Urban Decay Naked Flushed and I’m quite impressed with the overall quality.
Feel free to share your thoughts on the Urban Decay Naked Flushed Palette with me…let me know if you own it/ love it/ are lusting for it! I would love to hear from you 🙂
