Urban Decay Naked Honey Eyeshadow Palette Review & Swatches

Naked Honey

Urban Decay Naked Honey Eyeshadow Palette ($44.00 for 0.492 oz.) is the newest to the Naked series of palettes. It features “honey” hued shades–translation: warmer, yellower tones with less orange/red-based warmth–across an assortment of mattes and shimmers. The overall quality was there; almost every shade received perfect marks on pigmentation, though some were a bit thin, dusty, or had some fallout, which was where some fell a little short. Those who tend to user primer or don’t mind a bit of fallout will likely enjoy using the palette. From the color story, it is cohesive but isn’t the most versatile palette, though I think that the lighter and medium matte hues end up looking richer when applied than they appear in the pan.

Flyby

Flyby is a pale, yellowed beige with a satin sheen. It had excellent color payoff in a single layer, which applied well to bare skin with a smooth, even lay down of product, though there was light fallout. The consistency was very soft but it felt a touch drier and dustier. It stayed on well seven and a half hours on me before fading noticeably.

Sweet

Sweet is a light, peachy orange with warmer undertones and a matte finish. The pigmentation was nearly opaque in one pass, which applied evenly, blended out easily along the edges, but it did sheer out a bit. The eyeshadow has a soft, slightly thinner feel that was on the drier side. It wore nicely for seven and a half hours on me before I noticed any fading.

Swarm

Swarm is a light pop of orange with warm, yellow undertones and a matte finish. It had good color coverage with a soft, moderately powdery texture that sheered out a bit when applied, though it certainly blended out well along the edges. It lasted well for seven and a half hours on me before showing signs of fading.

Amber

Amber is a rich, molten gold with strong, warm undertones and a metallic finish. It had opaque color coverage in a single layer, which adhered evenly and blended out easily on my lid. The texture was smooth to the touch, lightly creamy but not too firmly pressed in the pan. It stayed on well for eight hours on me before fading visibly.

Keeper

Keeper is a brighter, light-medium brown with warm, golden undertone and a matte finish. The texture was slightly drier and thin with a bit of powderiness, but it applied evenly and blended out nicely so while it felt a bit off, it performed fine.

Golden

Golden is a bright, medium gold with strong, warm, more orange-leaning undertones and a sparkling, metallic finish. The pigmentation was opaque in one pass, while the texture was soft and smooth, but there was a bit of sparkle that resulted in light fallout during application.

Honey (2019)

Honey (2019) is a bright, medium gold with warm, yellow undertones and a sparkling, metallic finish. The eyeshadow had rich color payoff that adhered evenly and smoothly to bare skin with slight fallout. The texture felt firmer, a little stiff, but it became more yielding after a few uses.

Queen
