    If there’s one thing that Urban Decay is known for, it’s those signature Naked eyeshadow palettes. A classic staple item in many beauty-lovers’ make-up bags, they truly are iconic, and now there’s a new edition to add to the collection – introducing the Urban Decay Naked Honey Palette. SWEET.

    We’re buzzing to get stuck in to 12 brand-new shades that are long-lasting, highly pigmented and perfect for every occasion, all year round. With a combination of mattes, shimmers and metallics, this palette is excellent for creating a range of looks from neutral, to radiant, to retro.

    You can expect tonal browns and ambers, with luminous golden, copper and bronze shimmers that suit all skin tones. The golden hour never looked so good.

    Every eye look needs a flawless base, and what better shade to use than Naked Honey’s Flyby, a creamy satin ivory hue? Sweet, Swarm and Keeper make for ideal transition shades, while Drip and Sting are perfect to pop in the crease for that deep and defined look.

    The shimmery shades are on a whole new level. Packing any of these gorgeous golds and coppers onto your lids will give your eyes a new lease of life, and in the right light they’re almost blinding.

    The real show-stopper, though, of course goes to Honey, a vivid golden shade; slather this onto your lids for the ultimate statement look and you’ll definitely be turning heads. There’s no doubt that you’ll be hitting pan on every single one of these shades.

    The palette comes equipped with a double-sided application brush (which is vegan and cruelty-free, by the way). The tapered side is ideal for seamlessly blending and defining the crease, while the smaller, more dense side is great for packing on pigment and emphasising the lower lash-line.

    Urban Decay’s Nakeds have been exceedingly popular ever since the release of the original palette back in 2010, and there’s no doubt that Naked Honey will be just as favoured. So make sure you get your hands on it before it sells out!
