There’s a brand new Naked palette in town and it’s all about retro glam…hello, golden honey goodness!
Urban Decay NAKED Honey Eyeshadow Palette features 12 all-new decadent golden neutrals including classic golds, warm ambers & rich chocolate browns in matte, shimmer and metallic finishes.
Urban Decay Naked Honey Eyeshadow Palette is raw and sticky sweet, just the way nature intended. This buzzed-about palette is a keeper with 12 exclusive shades perfect to create a swarm of looks, from bright and sunny to dangerously seductive after dark.
Reach for our go-to shade Amber (it practically glows), create the perfect hazy, smoked-out eye with Sting (warm brown matte), or get hooked on Honey (intense gold metallic) for the ultimate ’70s statement eye.
From daytime matte to sultry metallic looks, blending your best look is easy, since the Naked Honey Eyeshadow Palette comes with a vegan and cruelty-free double-ended brush. One end is a smudger brush, which is short and densely packed to apply shadow along the lower lash line or smudge and blend. The other end is a tapered crease brush, perfect for defining the crease and blending shades. You won’t find another palette that’s this sweet.

Urban Decay NAKED Honey Palette Review
Honestly, when I first saw the new Urban Decay NAKED Honey Palette, my initial thought was that it’s a bit too warm-toned probably because of that striking yellow shade in the middle. Now don’t get me wrong…I have medium skin tone with warm undertones so I’ve always been drawn towards warm neutrals, especially soft gold and bronze hues.
As I started playing more with the palette, I realized the colors are actually quite flattering once applied. Yes, this palette has plenty of toasty tones but they are totally wearable and would compliment most skin tones. That said, if warm golden browns are not your thing at all, this palette might not be for you.
As you’d expect from Urban Decay, the eyeshadows in this palette have a great color payoff with a velvety soft texture that applies and blends out easily. The metallics are especially smooth, rich and packed with pigment!
The matte shades are pretty good too with an easy to blend formula that isn’t patchy and goes on very smoothly. A couple of the satin shimmers (especially Golden and Queen) have some fall out, but nothing too messy.
My favorite colors in this palette are Amber and HBIC. Both are such gorgeous shades with a silky, blendable texture and barely any fallout. I knew I would love HBIC for all its bronzy rose-gold goodness, but Amber was an instant fav as soon as I swatched it…it’s a gorgeous golden copper that’s perfect to add some pizzazz to your look! It pairs up nicely with Swarm and Keeper.
Here are the swatches of the Urban Decay NAKED Honey Palette:

Overall, Urban Decay NAKED Honey Palette gets a thumbs up from me. If you are also a fan of warm neutrals, this gorgeous golden toned palette is sure to please!
With a rich mix of tans, earthy browns and gold-hued shades, Naked Honey is more warm-toned than Urban Decay’s previous neutral palettes. So depending on your preference, you may or may not find the shades right up your alley.
