Legitimately Exciting: A New Urban Decay Naked Palette is Coming
Urban Decay's Naked Eyeshadow Palette ($83) has been a staple in beauty lovers' makeup bags since its debut in 2010. This is thanks to the 12 versatile and universally-flattering shades that are housed inside. (Shout out to "Sin" and "Sidecar," which are still the only two eyeshadows I wear on a daily basis!).
Urban Decay has released half a dozen iterations of its original Naked palette over the past seven years. But we are particularly excited about their newest, completely on-trend version: Naked Heat. If the swatches are any indication, this is probably going to be our new go-to palette. Keep reading to see the 12 new shades joining the Urban Decay Naked Palette family!
The shades in Naked Heat (with fiery names like En Feugo, Dirty Talk, Cayenne, and Ember) range from shimmery pale pinks to hot and heavy maroons. Urban Decay Founder Wende Zomnir told Allure: "These peachy, burgundy, red-based shadows look good on everyone because they resonate with that warmth that people want to bring out in their skin." If Instagram and YouTube are any indication, Zomnir is right on trend. Warm smoky eyes have been populating our feeds for the last several months, and we're definitely not mad about it.
The best part? The palette isn't UD's only launch. A brand new limited edition mini collection is launching right along with it. Three new Vice Lipsticks ($28) with cheeky names like Fuel, Heat, and Scorched will hit store shelves along with two new 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencils ($33) in shades Alkaline and Torch. All of these products follow the palette's lead with glinting, fiery red tones.
Interestingly enough, this palette took over a year to make. Zomnir calls it "the most crafted, most artisanal of all of the Naked palettes," due to its unique colour scheme and emphasis on warmth. "I've never been able to say this about a Naked palette," she continues, "but this is the first Naked palette that satisfies both my need for neutrals and my craving for rich, sexy colour." We agree: The burgundy tones are totally current and will transition seamlessly to summer later this year.
The new palette, along with the rest of the collection, will be available later this year—stay tuned for details.
