Hey Guys,
Today I'm going to share my thoughts on the new Urban Decay Naked Honey palette! They sent me the new palette a couple of weeks ago which I am very grateful for. When I first say this palette I knew I was going to love it. All of the warm brown and gold tones are definitely what I tend to gravitate towards. Keep reading to hear about this palette!
Review: Urban Decay Naked Honey Palette

Here is what is said about this palette on the Urban Decay website:
"Meet the Naked Honey Eyeshadow Palette, our newest addition to the Naked family—raw and sticky sweet, just the way nature intended. The irresistible combo of retro glam and golden glow makes this the one palette you'll be craving all year. Get hooked on this buzzed-about palette and its 12 exclusive shades; they’re perfect for creating a swarm of looks, from bright and sunny to dangerously seductive after dark. Reach for our go-to shade Amber (it practically glows), create the perfect hazy, smoked-out eye with Sting (warm brown matte), or get hooked on Honey (intense gold metallic) for the ultimate ’70s statement eye.From daytime matte to sultry metallic looks, blending your best look is easy, since the Naked Honey Eyeshadow Palette comes with a vegan and cruelty-free double-ended brush. One end is a smudger brush, which is short and densely packed to apply shadow along the lower lash line or smudge and blend. The other end is a tapered crease brush, perfect for defining the crease and blending shades. You won’t find another palette that’s this sweet."

On to my thoughts:
I knew I was going to love this palette! The shadows are all pigmented and blend so nice. The mattes are not chalky and you can easily build up the intensity. The shimmers are already super pigmented with one swipe. I always suggest using a shadow base like the Urban Decay Primer Potion or MAC's Paint Pots. I highly suggest using your finger to apply the shimmers for the best pigmentation. You can also wet your makeup brush with a setting spray or Fix+ to get a more intense color. This palette is very warmed tone which I love. You can create really simple and natural eye looks but also amp up the intensity and create some dramatic looks as well.   My favorite colors in the palette so far are Sweet, Amber, Golden, Keeper, Drip, an HBIC. Flyby is a good inner corner or brow highlight if you are going for a subtle look. Sweet is great for a base color or light transition shade depending on your skin tone Swarm, Keeper, Hive are also good transition shades All the shimmers are great for lid. Golden and honey look so pretty on the inner corner. Drip and Sting are good crease/outer corner or lower lash shades. If you can't tell already I highly recommend this palette! It's probably my favorite of all the Naked palettes. The only thing that would make it sweeter is if there was a light matte shade and if it was honey scented! I have already created a few looks with this palette. I will be posting looks in the coming weeks. Below is a sneak peak of one of the looks.
