As sad as it was to see the original Urban Decay Naked Palette go (the palette that started it all!) I love the newest addition to the Naked collection; the Naked Cherry. A collection featuring a rich array of cherry inspired colors.
The full collection includes:
- Naked Cherry Eyeshadow Palette // $49
- Naked Cherry Highlight and Blush Palette // $34
- Naked Cherry All Nighter Scented Makeup Setting Spray // $15 for 1 fl oz
- Vice Lipsticks in Juicy, Devilish and Cherry // $18 each
- Naked Cherry 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Love Drug and Black Market // $21 each
Of course, the star of the show is the Naked Cherry Eyeshadow Palette! I am ALL about soft pinks, neutrals pretty shimmers and this palette offers a whole lot of them. The first seven shades (L to R) are pretty neutral and shades that seem workable for everyone on an everyday basis. The last five shades (Bing-Privacy) are great for intensifying any look and adding depth and dimension. I always gravitate towards a few specific shades when I use this – crease color (Caution), transition (Feelz) outer corner (Privacy) then switch up the lid shade with different shimmery shades (Bang Bang is my favorite!) Although the color story is very monochromatic, I still have been able to come up with several different looks. And the formula is consistent in what we’ve come to expect from UD – blendable, pigmented and long lasting.
I feel like the Naked Cherry Highlight & Blush Palette wasn’t as well received as the eye palette, but I actually love it. I’ve seen other reviews/videos of people complaining about the stark white highlighting shade on the right not being the most flattering, and I’d have to agree. I love a really subtle “lit from within” type of highlight and this one is too much for me and the formula is chunkier and doesn’t feel as smooth as the more champagne toned one to the left. That’s more my style when it comes to highlighter, champagne-toned, smooth, no glitter and something that seamlessly blends with my skin tone but adds just a touch of natural glow. The blush in this palette is really pretty, it also blends out so easy and is buildable so if you’re hesitant of the berry color or just prefer a more subtle blush, this is still a great option as it adds such a soft flush of color. It really is one of the most fool-proof face palettes I’ve used and impossible to over do it.
The original All Nighter Setting Spray has been my go-to for years and was the first setting spray I ever used and still remains the only one I use. Tried & true! This packs the same punch just with a subtle cherry scent. Whether you choose the original or this one, you cant’t go wrong.
The Vice Lipsticks are all really pretty and I like that they’re all very different in tone. There is a neutral shade (Juicy), a bright pop of color (Devilish) and a deep berry (cherry). No shock here that Juicy is my favorite. No matter how many times I venture out to try deeper, bolder lip colors, I always go right back to my comfort zone; neutrals.
I rarely ever talk about eye pencils on my page. I feel like they take forever to actually use up and they’re just not the most exciting category in makeup. What I look for in a good eyeliner is, longevity, one that is smudge-proof and doesn’t irritate my eyes. The 24/7 Glide On Eye Pencils hits every mark (pertaining to the waterline) and I don’t find myself needing to reapply throughout the day.
Overall this is a really great collection! I love that each product is in sync with one another and everything just performs so well. And the packaging – SOOO beautiful! If you could only choose one item from the collection I’d definitely recommend the eyeshadow palette, but either way you go, you won’t be disappointed. Xo.
