Urban Decay Naked Flushed Native Palette Review

Today I’m excited to show you the new Urban Decay Naked Flushed Native Palette. This is a cool-toned pink palette that matches one of my three favorite Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick shades, Native. That’s the pink shade that I go for when I want a soft pink lip. I think it’s a more flattering shade than a beige lip on me for a ‘nude’ lip look. It made my Holy Grail Beauty Products, Best Products of 2013, my 5 Minute Face, and I’ve used the lipstick or lip pencil for several looks. It’s a great light pink on me. I had high hopes that the cheek palette would be just as flattering. Let’s find out.

Urban Decay is Cruelty Free and Leaping Bunny Approved.

 My Thoughts
UD describes this palette as medium bronze bronzer, pale pink shimmer highlighter, and bright pink blush. To me, the blush isn’t bright pink, nor is the highlighter pale pink, it’s more of an icy peachy pink. The bronzer is definitely medium toned to me.

I find the blush does a great job of mimicking my natural flush. I really like cool-toned blushes, and cool-toned pinks in particular, lately. I wouldn’t normally choose this shade of highlighter, as it’s an icy peachy pink shade, but I think it works ok on my complexion. I feel like the bronzer was too orange-toned for me. This palette kicked up a lot of dust for me when I used it, which I didn’t like. I believe this palette is a Sephora exclusive.

Overall, I feel like the blush and highlighter work well for me but the contour did not, as I felt it pulled orange. It may work better on different complexions. Between the bronzer not working for me and the palette kicking up dust,  this isn’t a must have palette, so unless you’re in love with the individual products, I would say skip it.

What do you think of the Urban Decay Naked Flushed Native Palette?

Pros

  • Nice shades for the blush and highlighter

Cons

  • Kicks up a lot of dust (wasted product)

  • If you don’t like cool toned pinks, you may not like the blush
