As an international kitteh model, Tabs the feline form.
After years spent striking fierce poses as a top talent in the fashion and beauty industries, he’s comfortable in his own fur, but sometimes when a shoot calls for him to pose in the buff, he has to pause…
He often wonders about the ethical implications. For instance, is it a Sin to want to get Naked in public?
Not according to Urban Decay!
If you like neutral makeup and palettes, you might want to Hustle on down to Sephora this September when the new Naked Palette ($44) disrobes on shelves.
Don’t be surprised to find yourself overwhelmed by a euphoric Smog the first time you peep this palette of 12 powder shadows.
The smooth champagne, brown, bronze, gold and charcoal shades (in a variety of finishes!) might leave you feeling Toasted (like the time you drank that Sidecar on an empty stomach, oy!).
Obviously, Urban Decay wants us all to get Naked (despite the social mores), and for what it’s worth, it’s not a Half Baked idea.
The palette’s muted matte browns may Buck UD’s bright style, but a handful of sooty shades help to liven things up.
The palette reminds me of this guy I once dated. It didn’t last because he turned out to be a real Creep (a shimmery blackish gray with sliver glitter), but he wore this heavy leather Gunmetal (a shimmery dark gray that looks almost bluish on my skin) blazer out to dinner everywhere we went, even if it was much too hot. I guess he just thought of himself as some kind of Darkhorse (a shimmery golden grayish brown) character, but I digress…
When it comes to guys like that, I have Zero (a matte black) patience, but he did introduce me to Whiskey (a matte brown)… I guess I owe him for that.
Of course, I’d take a wee bottle of Primer Potion (included with the palette but not shown) any day of the week.
Seriously, the palette’s color story should satisfy hard core Urban Decay fans who crave eye-popping smokey looks, and if you’re an Urban Decay Virgin, Naked might be a great way to break the ice.
If you can’t wait for September, check out Urban Decay’s website. They released Naked online last week, but due to high demand it’s been sold out (*tears*). You might still get your hands on it, however, by signing up to be notified when they have it in stock. NOTE: The signups are free, but you do have to give them a valid email address.
I bet I’ll be able to get a lot of use out of these shades (I’m a neutrals kinda girl!), and I think the palette looks cute (and portable).
You simply can’t go wrong with Urban Decay’s buttery, blendable eyeshadow texture. Naked is probably one of my favorite fall palettes so far. LOVE! Makeup and Beauty Blog Rating: A+
Are you feeling Naked? What do you think of the shades? BOOYAH or BLAH?
