In this post, I am reviewing Urban Decay Naked Reloaded Neutral Eyeshadow Palette. Read on for more details on this beautiful eyeshadow palette.
We changed the eyeshadow game forever with our original Naked Palette, so it’s only natural that we’d rethink neutral. Meet the Naked Reloaded Eyeshadow Palette, with 12 all-new, universally flattering shades designed for everyone—for any age, gender, and skin tone. Naked Reloaded was designed with every makeup bag in mind. The four outer pans are bigger for the shades you’ll use the most. With silky mattes, metallics, and micro-shimmers, this eyeshadow palette has the nudes you’ll always need, all in one place.
$44 USD/2920 PHP (3900 INR approximately).
Medium fair, warm undertones. Eye Color: Black.
My Experience with Urban Decay Naked Reloaded Neutral Eyeshadow Palette:
Urban Decay had recently launched Urban Decay Naked Reloaded Eyeshadow Palette. This is a beautiful neutral palette. Let’s begin the review with the packaging of the product. The eyeshadows come housed in a beautifully-designed palette. This palette is covered with a fabric that has some neutral print on it. I love how pretty this fabric casing looks but it might get dirty over time and will be difficult to clean. This palette comes housed in a cardboard packaging, which bears necessary product-related information on it. The complete ingredients list is also mentioned on the packaging. It closes with a nice magnetic closure and also comes with a huge mirror. There’s no eyeshadow brush provided though. I had loved the dual-ended brush that had come along with the Naked Cherry Eyeshadow Palette. I wish the brand had included a brush in this palette too, but apart from that, I don’t have any complaints with the packaging.
The palette contains 12 pretty shades. The brand has given more quantity to base colors as you can guess from the pictures itself that the pans of the first shade “Bribe” and the last shade “Blur” are comparatively bigger than the other pans. The palette contains a combination of mattes, shimmers and metallic eyeshadows. This palette is featuring mainly the neutral browns, bronze and coppery tones. The color scheme is not too broad but it is definitely worth checking, if you like to create some subtle eye makeup. Now, let’s discuss each shade one by one.
- Bribe: It is a pale beige with subtle, warm undertones and has a pearly sheen. It has good pigmentation and gives pretty much decent coverage in a single swipe. It almost sets to a matte finish. The formula is slightly powdery and has a bit of fallout, yet it is soft and easy to blend. This shade is an ideal all-over-lid color and can also be used as a brow bone highlighter.
- Barely Baked: It is a light-medium gold with strong warm undertones. It has a nice and soft metallic sheen. It is quite opaque in terms of pigmentation. The texture is soft and non powdery.
- Angel Fire: This is a light peachy gold shade with flecks of gold and pink glitter. It has semi-opaque pigmentation and has a slightly dry texture, also tends to fallout a little. The glitters fallout during applying, so I prefer applying it using a damp eyeshadow brush. The shimmers are subtle and do not look over the top.
- Retro: It is a matte coral pink shade with warm undertones and a matte finish. The color payoff is rich. The texture is soft and smooth but slightly dusty in the pan.
- Reputation: It is a slightly muted medium copper eyeshadow with warm undertones. It has a soft metallic finish. The eyeshadow has opaque color payoff, which builds up nicely on the skin and gives opaque coverage. The texture is smooth, creamy and non-drying. There is no fallout.
- Burn: It is a deep reddish bronze with warm undertones. It has a metallic sheen to it. The formula is richly pigmented. It has a smooth, soft, and blendable texture. This is non powdery and does not fall out.
- End Game: This is a deep brown eye shadow with some cool undertones. It has a nice satiny matte finish. It is nearly opaque in pigmentation. The texture is very finely milled & silky smooth. It is non powdery and barely falls out.
- Dreamweaver: It is a medium taupe eye shadow with flecks of silver glitters. It is good in terms of pigmentation but it is better to apply it with a damp eyeshadow brush, as it tends to get fall out very easily. I prefer using a glitter primer and press this shadow firmly on top of my eyelids. The texture is dry and kind of chunky.
- Distilled: It is a medium bronze eyeshadow with a nice frosted finish. It has opaque pigmentation and color builds up really nicely on the eyelids. There is barely any fallout in this eye shadow.
- Bucked: It is a subtle light-medium brown eye shadow with warm undertones. It has nice matte finish. It is rich in pigmentation & gives really nice coverage. The consistency is soft, smooth but lightly powdery in the pan, but it does not fallout during application.
- Boundaries: This is a medium brown eyeshadow with strong warm and orange undertones. It has some flecks of gold shimmers in it, but they are so sparse that the overall finish is satiny matte. The texture was soft and smooth but lightly powdery. There is no significant fall out.
- Blur: It is peachy beige with warm undertones and a matte finish. The texture is soft, smooth but slightly powdery that it tends to fallout easily. The pigmentation is on a sheerer side but it is buildable with an eye primer underneath.
The texture of the eyeshadows are soft, smooth, and easy to blend. Some shades are kind of dry in texture, as I have mentioned already. But I love the fact that the metallic and mattes are very silky smooth and blendable. Shimmery shades glide effortlessly on the lids and are non-drying in nature. They glide on the eyelid like a dream without any tugging or without pulling the delicate eye area. The eyeshadows are non chalky but some mattes are slightly powdery and have a bit of a fallout. Most of the shades are amazing in pigmentation. On the other hand, the less pigmented shades are easy to work with an eye primer underneath. There is no major fallout issue with any of the shades.
Urban Decay Naked Reloaded Eyeshadow Palette is a nice everyday palette. The color scheme is good for women who like to wear subtle eye makeup looks. I still think it misses out some distinctive contrasting shades. It can be used to create both soft and party makeup looks. Most of the shades last on my eyes for a good 7-8 hours with an eye primer underneath without much fading or creasing.
