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.
NAKED HONEY – THE SHADES:
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.
HOW I’M WEARING NAKED HONEY:
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.
A FEW FINAL WORDS
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.
