It’s always exciting when Urban Decay announces a new addition to the Naked line up and Naked Cherry is no different. I was super lucky that I managed to get my hands on it in a 48 hour flash sale on Saturday while wandering round London but it’s going to be available in the middle of October so not long to wait if you didn’t manage to get one!
If you’ve read my review of the Naked Heat palette, you’ll know that the original Naked palette was my absolute favourite so I was devastated when it was announced that it would be discontinued. Luckily, I’ve got the new Naked Cherry palette to distract me!
The Naked Cherry palette is absolutely gorgeous with lovely pink, cherry tones which I think is perfect for autumn and I’ll be wearing it through winter for all my festive parties. As with all the Naked Palettes, it’s got twelve shades in total- five shimmers and seven matte shades. The only shade I can’t quite get on board with yet is Juicy but I’ll see how I get on with it.
If you’re familiar with Urban Decay’s palettes you’ll know that Naked 3 is the signature pink hued palette but Cherry is very different, full of peachy pinks and reddish browns.
The packaging of the palette is very similar to the Naked Heat palette, with a vibrant pink casing and rose gold writing. It also includes a full size mirror, has a magnetic catch and it comes with a double ended brush for perfect application!
Naked Cherry – The Shades
Hot Spot- Every Naked palette starts with a pale highlight shade and Naked Cherry is no exception. Hot Spot is a champagne ivory shade with a matte finish. This will be great for your inner eye corners and brow bone and would also work well as a base for other shadows.
Caution- This is matte in a pale bone shade, a perfect base colour.
Bang Bang- This is a shimmery, sparkly pale pink which will be a gorgeous highlight shade.
Feelz- This is more of a dusky rose pink matte which I think will be a great transitional colour for a crease. I can see myself using this one a lot.
Juicy- The first shade that I’m not convinced on. Its a soft warm matte peach but I don’t think this one goes with my colouring so I’m undecided as yet.
Turn On- Hands down my favourite shade. This is a metallic rose gold shimmer which I think will be one of my “go to” shades to sweep across the whole lid
Ambitious – If turn on is my favourite, then ambitious is my second favourite. This is a gorgeous copper shimmer shade which I think will look incredible on a night out.
Bing- This is a darker pink shade, more of a mauve which is matte which will be perfect to deepen up any crease.
Devilish- This shade reminds me of some of the shades from the Naked Heat palette such as He Devil. It’s a matte dark plum-ish shade which is perfect to take a look from daytime to nighttime.
Young Love – This shade is so festive, its pink, its sparkly and a gorgeous metallic cranberry colour.
Drunk Dial- This looks better on the swatch than it does in the pan as it suddenly comes alive! It’s a gorgeous metallic Burgundy brown with pink undertones.
Privacy- The final shade is a deep matte brown.
My favourite shades that I think I’ll wear regularly are Feelz, Turn On, Ambitious and Drunk Dial.
How I’m Wearing Naked Cherry
Start by sweeping Caution across the lid as a base shade. Then, push Feelz into the crease and add Devilish over the top to build the crease up.
Next, apply Turn On over the your lids and add Ambitious into the outer corner of the lid. To finish, add Bang Bang to the inner corner of your eye and to the top of the brow bone.
This palette is slightly more expensive than previous palettes but as with all of the Urban Decay Naked palettes, I think it’s really good value for money for 12 high quality shades and they last for YEARS.
The Urban Decay Naked Cherry palette costs £42 and will launch on 15 October.
