Urban Decay Naked Reloaded Eyeshadow Palette Review + Swatches

Wednesday 24 April 2019

Whilst we all mourned the loss of the original Urban Decay Naked Eyeshadow Palette towards the end of last year, Urban Decay had a little treat up their sleeves. They recently surprised us with a brand new eyeshadow palette, the Urban Decay Naked Reloaded Eyeshadow Palette to be exact. When it comes to nudes, Urban Decay always know how to rock our world...
This brand new palette offers a range of universal nudes that can be combined to create endless everyday or dramatic eye looks. It comes housed in a slimline palette which has a soft, padded satin-like shell, featuring gorgeous orchid flowers all over it, and I must say for me personally, I really enjoy this packaging. This is lighter to hold than the original Naked palettes, and you don't receive a brush like you do in the others, but to be honest, that doesn't bother me as I have a hoard of eyeshadow brushes You do receive a mirror on the inside of the lid though like the originals.
Urban Decay Naked Reloaded contains 12 shadows, with two larger pans on the outside and two medium sized pans next to those, which are the MVP shades according to Urban Decay so those are the ones you would probably use more. Formula-wise, this palette offers the same high-quality, pigmented and silky shadows just like we have come to expect from the brand, so there is no concern there whatsoever.
Onto the shades themselves, and this is quite a warm-toned palette. From left to right, we have...
Bribe - a soft satin ivory with a hint of pearlescence
Barely Baked - a light gold metallic shimmer
Angel Fire - a pale rose gold glitter
Retro - a matte warm peach
Reputation - a warm rosy brown metallic shimmer
Burn - a rich warm brown shimmer with a darker base
End Game - a deep chocolate brown with minute sparkles
Dreamweaver - a taupe brown glitter
Distilled - a bronze metallic shimmer
Bucked - a matte light brown
Boundaries - a matte terracotta with minute gold sparkles
Blur - a matte beige nude
This is definitely another solid addition to the Urban Decay Naked family, and for me, it has a much more updated shade range, with that pop of peach in it, and a good variation of tones and finishes. Whether you are a makeup pro or a makeup newbie, you will absolutely be able to create an eye look or twenty with this palette.
The Urban Decay Naked Reloaded Eyeshadow Palette costs £38.00 and is available online at Urban Decay here.

All the Loves,
