After a good few years of finding dupes for the famous Urban Decay Naked eyeshadow palettes I thought it was about time I finally bought myself one of the originals and stop being a cheapskate. If you haven't seen my previous posts, MUA and Make-up Revolution do amazing dupes for these palettes but nothing compares to the real thing. 

This Smoky Palette by Urban Decay has the most beautiful colour range which varies from subtle nudes to extreme smokey colours. I had been eyeing up this palette ever since it was first released as it seemed like such a versatile palette and I knew it would be perfect for both day and night make up looks, meaning I wouldn't have to attempt to fit at least three different eyeshadow palettes in my make up bag.

This palette contains 8 shimmer eyeshadows and 4 matte colours which is perfect to create a gorgeous smokey eye. When I first swatched this palette I was amazed by the pigmentation of the colours especially the shade 'Dirty Sweet' and how buttery the textures were. On my everyday eye make up basis I tend to stick to similar looks using mainly brown subtle shades but I am trying to mix things up especially it being Autumn/Winter and this palette has allowed me to do just that! 

I do however feel that some of the shades aren't as pigmented as others which would made me love this palette even more, however that does seem to be the only fault I have. My favourite shades from this palette is 'Dirty Sweet', 'Radar', 'Smolder' and 'Whisky'. I feel that these colours are amazing to create an everyday eyeshadow look and with the dark purple edge 'Smolder' gives it's perfect for winter time. I will definitely be purchasing future palettes released by Urban Decay as I feel all of the colours really compliment each other.

What is your go to eyeshadow palette?
