Urban Decay has expanded their Naked Palette line by introducing the Naked Cherry Palette, as well as an entire Naked Cherry Collection with a range of make-up products to compliment the palette. The collection is packed with Cherry-hued neutral colors, including rose golds, mauves and burgundy shades. For today’s post, I’m going to show you a selection of products from the Urban Decay Naked Cherry Collection.
Urban Decay Naked Cherry Palette
The Urban Decay Naked Cherry Palette (€55,00 Euro) comes in a cardboard box and is like the newer naked palettes, made of hard and sturdy plastic. The palette has a dark, cherry shade and while the back looks very simple, the front shows an embossed image of cherries with the Urban Decay Logo on top. I’m always obsessed with the brands packaging and this is no different. It looks super luxurious and attractive.
Like the other Naked palettes (excluding the Basics), the Urban Decay Naked Cherry Palette includes twelve eyeshadows, a full-size mirror and a double-ended brush. The eyeshadows are all in their separate, rectangular pans and contain 1.1 grams of product per shade.
The double-ended brush has a Blending Brush end and a Precision Brush end. I always like the brushes that come with the naked palettes, they feel soft and are of high-quality. I also used this brush for the upcoming eyelook, which worked great. I especially like the Precision Brush and for adding color to the the outer corners.
The twelve eyeshadow shades inside the Urban Decay Naked Cherry Palette are all brand new, so there are no pre-existing eyeshadow shades inside the palette. The shades are described as follows:
HOT SPOT (ivory matte)
CAUTION (soft neutral beige matte)
BANG BANG (shimmering pink with gold shift and iridescent micro-sparkle)
FEELZ (soft dusty rose matte)
JUICY (soft warm peach)
TURN ON (pale metallic rose shimmer)
AMBITIOUS (metallic rose copper)
BING (deep mauve matte)
DEVILISH (reddish plum matte)
YOUNG LOVE (metallic cranberry)
DRUNK DIAL (deep metallic burgundy)
PRIVACY (deep brownish-plum matte)
The eyeshadows feel soft and perform well however, I noticed that the mattes inside the palette are slightly gritty when touching them with my fingers. I don’t know if it’s because of the type of pigments that come with these kind of colors but it doesn’t affect the performance. I do have to say that the metallic shades are less intense as I would expect from Urban Decay but they still are beautiful and pigmented.
For this look, I used the Urban Decay Naked Cherry Palette using the shades FEELZ (transition shade), BING (crease, outer 3rd of the lid and bottom lid), DEVILISH (deepen crease and outer 3rd), PRIVACY (outer V), YOUNG LOVE (inner two 3rd of the upper lid and inner 3rd of the bottom lid) and HOT SPOT (browbone and inner corner highlight).
I absolutely adore the look using the Urban Decay Naked Cherry Palette. I still wish that the metallics inside the palette were a bit more intense. I had to wet the brush to use the shade YOUNG LOVE and I still feel that the shade isn’t as intense as I would like. Even though the metallic shade is not as intense, the mattes were! Each shade blended beautifully and work amazing together. The only thing that I’m missing in the palette is a light shimmery shade for an inner corner highlight.
Urban Decay Naked Cherry Vice Lipsticks
The Urban Decay Naked Cherry Vice Lipsticks (€20,00 Euro/3.4 gr each) are available in three different shades. To match the Naked Cherry Collection, these come in the Limited Edition Cherry packaging. Like the regular Vice Lipsticks (review here), the lipstick bullet has the Urban Decay emblem pressed into the product held in the same type of casing.
The lipsticks are unscented and have a different formula, the first two, Juicy and Devilish have a Metallized finish and while Cherry has a Cream finish. Even though these are not meant to be fully opaque, they have a good product pay-off and glide easily on the skin. The first two shades apply evenly but the Cherry shade can apply patchy if you have dry spots on the lips, so a lip scrub and a lip pencil is recommended before using this shade.
Urban Decay Vice Lipstick in Juicy
The Urban Decay Vice Lipstick in Juicy is described as a light peach-pink with copper micro-shimmer. I’ve applied it with a very thick layer on the lipswatch and how I would wear this shade on the complete look, which is slightly sheerer. I think this shade looks absolutely gorgeous. The micro-shimmers inside the lipstick make the lips looks extra glowy and juicy.
Urban Decay Vice Lipstick in Devilish
The Urban Decay Vice Lipstick in Devilish is described as a berry pink with tonal micro-shimmer. I’ve again applied the shade thicker on the lipswatch and more sheer on the complete look. I think this shade looks absolutely gorgeous. I really like the combination of this lipstick with the eyelook. I think this is a nice shade for the summer or for a party.
Urban Decay Vice Lipstick in Cherry
The Urban Decay Vice Lipstick in Cherry is described as a deep berry wine. I absolutely love these kinds of shades for this time of year and again, I think it matches the eyelook beautifully. It made the entire look feel more sexy and sultry. I love the finish in combination with the lipstick color but like I’ve mentioned before, it might be a good idea to apply a lip liner prior as a base.
Urban Decay All Nighter Cherry Scented Setting Spray
To set the Naked Cherry look, the brand has created the Urban Decay All Nighter Cherry Scented Setting Spray (€14,00 Euro/30 mL). This setting spray is only available in travel-size to easily set your make-up wherever you are. The setting spray’s formula is made with patented Temperature Control Technology and suitable for all skin types, setting your make-up for up to 16 hours.
Like the name is implying, this is basically a travel-size Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray with a Cherry scent. This was actually the product that I was most excited for when the Urban Decay Naked Cherry Collection was revealed however, the scent isn’t what I was expecting. I was expecting a Maraschino Cherry type of scent, the kind that they use on desserts, which is sweet. Instead, this scent is more tarte like an actual cherry. It’s not bad but just not something that I personally would prefer.
Either way, the product performs as great as the regular All Nighter Setting Spray. It has a fine mist and keeps my make-up looking fresh.
I love the entire look and feel of the Urban Decay Naked Cherry Collection, so I’m definitely a fan. These cherry/berry/mauve type of shades are right up my alley and I think a lot of people would think the same. I would absolutely recommend to check out the Urban Decay Naked Cherry Palette and the matching products if you love these kinds of shades like I do.
The Urban Decay Naked Cherry Collection is available at IciParisXL.nl, HudsonsBay.nl and selected Ici Paris XL and Hudson’s Bay stores. All prices mentioned in the post are suggested retail prices.
