The collection is composed by three pigments and two glitters:

  • Gold Rush is described as a “snow white with gold glitter. This iridescent duo chrome glitter pigment colour looks white in the jar but it has beautiful gold reflects when applied to the skin. The rich and almost foiled effect texture allow it to glide smoothly on the lid, especially when using a water based mixing medium”.

  • Antique Bronze is described as a “bronze metallic glitter. This iridescent glitter pigment colour shows the true definition of bronze”.sparkleoflight-makeup-addiction-bedazzled-collection-christmas-pigment-set-antique-bronze
  • Venetian Gold is described as a “duochrome green with gold reflect. This unique reflective duo chrome colour has a moss green and gold shift which transcends beautifully in the light”.

  • Coppertone is described as a “true shimmery copper. This colour certainly reminds us of a rich jewel toned copper. The rich texture allows it to glide smoothly on the lid, so no hustling with this one!”.

Urban Decay • Naked Smoky Palette • Summer 2015

A new exciting addiction to the famous Naked palette line has been done! We’re talking about the brand new Naked Smoky!sparkleoflight urban decay naked smoky palette eyeshadow eyeshadows preview review summer packaging Following the footsteps of the Naked 1, 2 and 3, this new palette is composed by twelve shades and features “nine never-before-seen shades and three exclusives”.

How is the Naked Smoky palette described?

sparkleoflight urban decay naked smoky palette eyeshadow eyeshadows preview review summer lookThere’s more to the perfect smoky eye than a heap of dark shadow and a badass attitude. (Although the attitude certainly doesn’t hurt.) The key to nailing the most sought-after and elusive eye look ever? Urban Decay’s Naked Smoky—loaded with ALL the essentials for the perfect neutral smoky eye. We packed our newest Naked palette with a dozen sultry, smoky neutrals—nine never-before-seen shades and three exclusives. Experiment with warm bronzes, dimensional grays, rich browns, gorgeous taupes and deep black. From mattes and satins to shades with sparkle, Naked Smoky has it all. We painstakingly assembled everything you need in one palette: A true range of shades. The perfect brushes. We even included detailed tutorials!

Ever buy a beauty product and then realize you have no idea how to use it? Naked Smoky makes sultry, come-hither eyes totally doable. A detailed look book included with the palette breaks down four of our favorite ways to get Naked and smoky. Follow the step-by-step instructions to steal one of our looks (try the Iconic UD Smoky Eye, the Smoky Reality Star, the Smoky Cat or Everyday Smoky), or create your own. We even worked with top makeup artists to get their best tips and tricks for smoky-eye success. And since high-quality brushes are essential, we preloaded the palette with an exclusive double-ended brush. Use the Tapered Crease Brush to lay down shadow, define the crease or blend out color. To seamlessly fuse shadow and liner, use the Smoky Smudger Brush. Small enough for highlighting the brow bone or the corner of the eye, it’s also ideal for smoking out the lower lash line. (It’s also Wende’s favorite shape for perfect tight-lining.)

The case and the brush feature a cool floating smoke effect, with “Naked Smoky” in gunmetal foil. To add to the mysterious vibe, we set the shadow pans in a smoky transparent base. As mesmerizing as the case is, it’s also practical. A magnetic closure prevents shadow mishaps in your bag, and the full-size mirror makes it easy to get Naked whenever the urge strikes.

How is the palette composed?
