Review: Urban Decay Naked Honey Palette | BEAUTY

I’m a huge fan of the urban decay naked eyeshadow palettes; I’ve reviewed the latest additions to the Naked line up, including  Naked Heat, Naked Cherry and Naked Reloaded on this blog and I knew that I absolutely had to purchase the new Naked Honey palette when it came out.


Flyby – this is an ivory satin shade, a perfect neutral colour for under the brow bone or on the inner corner of the eye to brighten.

Sweet – this is quite a pale beige matte, perfect for creating a plain base or blank canvas on the eyelid.

Swarm – I really like this warm, mustard brown matte shade and think I’ll use this in my crease quite regularly.

Amber – Probably my favourite shade in the whole palette; amber is a metallic copper shimmer which is so incredibly pigmented. I absolutely love the colour and think it really makes blue eyes pop.

Keeper – this is a darker version of Swarm, another mustard brown matte shade and I think it’s also quite similar to boundaries in the Naked Reloaded Palette. This will work really well to deepen up a crease.

Golden – an absolutely gorgeous rich golden shimmer shade, packed with pigmentation for a lasting finish.

Honey – I was actually quite disappointed with the honey shade, an intense gold metallic which I felt had a lot of fallout and wasn’t as intense as I expected. The pigmentation is poor compared to Amber, Golden and HBIC. I’m not sure if this shade will suit many skin tones either.

Queen – a gorgeous golden brown shimmer shade, similar to smog which will be perfect for the outer corners of the eyelid.

Hive – A warm matte brown shade which I’ll be using underneath my eyes.

Drip – drip is a lovely dark red reddish brown shade which will work well to deepen up a crease.

HBIC – my second favourite shade in the palette; a rosy bronze shimmer, guaranteed to make your eyes pop with great pigmentation.

Sting – a deep warm brown matte. I tend not to use the super dark shades much but I really like the piogmentation of this shade and I think it’ll be nice blended into the outer corners of the eyelid.

My favourite shades are Amber, HBIC and Keeper.


Start by blending bucked into the crease line and then blend boundaries over the top of bucked to deepen up the crease.

Take boundaries on a different brush and run it across the lower lash line and then sweep reputation across the lid. Apply burn in the corners of your lid and finish with a slick of black eyeliner. 


I really like this palette – the warm golds, browns and bronze shades are very “me”, much moreso than some of the other palettes like Naked Cherry which admittedly, I don’t reach for very much. The Naked Honey palette works particularly well for those of us with blue eyes as I think the shades really makes them pop.

I did note that the price point is slightly higher than previous palettes but I’m never disappointed with Urban Decay eyeshadow – the shades, pigmentation and quality is always exceptionally high and Naked Honey continues to meet my expectations.

Have you got any Urban Decay Naked palettes? Which one is your favourite?
