As we all know by now, is that I’m a sucker for neutral-toned palettes. I love how this Urban Decay Naked Honey Eyeshadow Palette is neutral-toned, but due to the honey inspiration, it has some gorgeous gold tones in it as well.

I didn’t really need another neutral palette, but I just couldn’t pass on this new, gorgeous palette. But is she just a beautiful palette on the outside? Let’s find out together.

7.6Expert Score
Urban Decay Naked Honey Eyeshadow Palette
Overall, I got to say that I’m pretty disappointed. I love the color story; however, the shades are similar. I love the pigment but that comes with powderiness and fallout. I like at least one darker shade, but that one was patchy and hard to blend. I’m not saying that this is a bad palette, but I do think it could’ve been way better.

Urban Decay Naked Honey Eyeshadow Palette Review

A versatile eyeshadow palette with 12 golden neutrals made for creating indulgent looks that look good on every skin tone, thanks to richly pigmented mattes, metallics, and shimmers. This lineup of opulent golden neutral eyeshadows was made for every eye color and skin tone.

With classic golds, warm ambers, and rich chocolate browns, create the perfect smoked-out eye with Sting (warm brown matte) or get hooked on Honey (intense gold metallic) for that ’70s statement eye. The eyeshadow palette also includes a vegan and cruelty-free double-ended eyeshadow brush so it’s extra easy to spoil yourself on the go.

How To Use

  • To achieve the ultimate ’70s statement eye, saturate the eyeshadow brush with All Nighter Long-Lasting Makeup Setting Spray first before reaching for shades of Honey, Amber, and Golden.
  • The gilded colors combined with All Nighter Makeup Setting Spray create a super-silky look that lasts.
  • Create a custom cream eyeshadow by mixing in a small dollop of Eyeshadow Primer Potion and your favorite shade of shadow. The color instantly lays down extra-intense and smooth—plus, you’ll stay crease-free all day.
  • Brown shades can double for brows and golden shades are perfect for use as highlighters.
  • Metallic shades can be added to the Cupid’s bow for a hit of highlight or on top of any Vice Lipstick for a shimmering effect.

Things To Note

The Urban Decay Naked Honey Eyeshadow Palette is Paraben-free, Sulfate-free, Phthalate-free, and Cruelty-free.

Where To Buy

The Urban Decay Naked Honey Eyeshadow Palette retails for $49 and is available at the Urban Decay website urbandecay.com, Sephora, Nordstrom, Macy’s, and Cult Beauty.

Urban Decay Honey Palette Swatches & Review

Urban Decay Makeup Haul &Amp; Look | Testing Out The Stay Naked Foundation &Amp; Concealer + Naked Honey Palette

I fell in love with the color story of the Urban Decay Naked Honey Eyeshadow Palette which is why I decided to get the palette, however, I noticed that some of these shadows are very similar. Especially on the eyelids, it’s almost impossible to see a difference in shades. Which is quite a bummer because you’re paying for a 12-pan palette.

Almost all mattes swatched pretty well, except for the last and darkest shade. I also noticed it being hard to blend and patchy-looking on the eyes. Another disappointment because this shade is pretty important to be able to create some depth in your eye look. I barely reach for that shade and if I do, I regret it most of the time.

On top of that, I noticed that the mattes in the palette are pretty pigmented but they’re also quite powdery. This is why I had kickback in the pan and a bit of fallout on the face. The metallics, on the other hand, aren’t pigmented right from the get-go when using a brush, but get some of their pigment back when applied with your finger or a wet brush. Especially the wet brush helped me to make the metallics pop a little, but it did require some work. The shadows, both matte and metallic, do stay on all day though which is very nice.

The palette was okay to work with, I wouldn’t say it was very easy but it wasn’t hard either. Most of the shadows blend pretty well and are quite easy to apply or to build up in pigment. However, I wouldn’t recommend this palette to beginners or to people that want a quick, easy palette. I’m still doubting if I think this palette is worth the $49 or not. It’s a beautiful palette but it does have quite a few cons.

Alternatives

  • Natasha Denona Sunset Palette: The Sunset Palette is definitely a lot more expensive but the quality is way better too. The formula is buttery soft, super easy to work with, pigmented, no patchiness or fallout. Truly a great alternative if you have some money to spend!

Final Verdict

Overall, I got to say that I’m quite disappointed. I love the color story but the shades are similar, I love the pigment but that comes with powderiness and fallout. I like at least one darker shade but that one was patchy and hard to blend. I’m not saying that this is a bad palette but I do think it could’ve been way better.
