The Urban Decay Naked Smoky Palette is the fourth full sized shadow palette in the Naked family. Like the others, Naked Smoky is made up of twelve shadows. The color scheme of the palette is mostly cool toned, designed, clearly, for smoky eye looks.
The Naked Smokey Palette comes in a hard, plastic package with a really cool smokey design. It is definitely my favorite packaging out of the Naked Palettes. Unlike most palettes, the light shades can be found on either end of the palette, and the dark shades are located in the middle. Originally I was not interested in the palette since it is marketed for doing smokey eye looks, but once I swatched it, I was sold and I had to finish my Naked Palette collection. While you definitely could create a smokey look using the palette, it has enough lighter and midtone shadows to create a variety of eye looks. Something I am not crazy about with this palette is that there really is a lack of transition shades. Combust is the closest thing to one, but it is still a bit on the light side. So, in order to use the darker shades from the palette, I would suggest adding a separate transition shade to make the blending process easier. The shadow formula is fairly consistent across the board. The only shade that is lacking a bit in pigmentation is Armor.
