Urban Decay - Naked Flushed


So Urban decay have added more members to its ever growing Naked family, with the collection being complete for complexion, Naked Skin and Naked BB balm are now available and also a wide range of setting sprays have been released with the New Ammo 2 palatte. 
Now its no secret how much i love Urban decay as a brand and the quality of there eyeshadow has lead to me building up quite a collection. After i reviewed and loved the Naked basics palette, when i saw this new cheek palatte for contouring, highlight and blush. I was excited. I have the Benefit Fine one one but its not suitable when my cheeks are having a dry day so i was wanting this for those days when a powder formula is better. 

So the packaging is the same layout with the Naked line being across the centre and its roughly the same size as the Basics palatte, maybe a bit wider.

So the Naked Flushed palatte is dedicated towards the cheek area and making the face pop with colour and radiance. 
So the Blush part is a lovely fine milled feel powder with a high pigment plus high colour payoff, so you do not need a lot of product on your brush and i would tap off the excess as the colour is a dusky pink which is easy to build upon but not so easy to remove if too much is applied. It blends well and it gives a lovely healthy glow on finish- Really is a lovely spring coloured blush.

The Highlight is a Champagne colour with a lovely light shimmer to it, its again a lovely feeling product and blends well on application. The colour will be good with any skin tone i feel as it radiates plus is easily blend-able. I really love this highlight and think its the most natural highlight i own and will enjoy using this in looks day. I really want to show this colour off as i think the powder version may payoff colour wise better then the cream one i own.

The bronzer is the biggest section which i would have preferred the highlight being a little bigger considering its such a lovely colour. I understand though that the bronzer is the most used out of the palatte. I do think this section was not as pigmented and took a bit more to build upon but i didn't mind that as i would rather build then look like I've been tangoed and its something easy done if your not too careful. Its a muted and matte brown colour which is brilliant as some bronzers have shimmer over load, If its summer fair enough but in the transitional months you really want a matte product. 

So il be using this tomorrow as i have been trying to use a highlight i have up but its on its last legs so i may just use this now and the mirror included is perfect for travelling. So this would be good to have with you. I cant wait to use this as I've missed being able to use my cream version (drags on my little dry patch ) but this will offer a great glow for me and the highlight colour is stunning. Again another wonderful offering from Urban decay and i think il be hard pressed to find a product of theres i don't like. 
I must say though that my skin tone is fair to medium.

      yeah it will last a good while as it takes me ages now to hit pan on a product seems like the formulas are lighter so not alots needed when the pigment payoff is this good x

  4. This is lovely - haven't seen it yet and I really like it, would agree with you about the biggest section being the bronzer - think they should be more even. I much prefer powder blush at the mo so Im a fan x
