UDsmoked 48Probably the best way to apply the colorful shades- OVER perversion. (left is over blended Perversion swatch, right is on its own, no base)

This palette is awesome, however, it definitely is not all new. 5 of the 10 shades are new and exclusive to the palette (Kinky, Freestyle, Backdoor, Barlust, and Asphalt are new!), so if you already have the other 5, it may not be worth your money. In addition to the actual makeup, you get a 26 page how-to booklet with different ideas of looks to create with the colors. I totally forgot to photograph this, but it is in the video review :)

This palette wil be sold for $49 from Urban Decay.

    this palette is so amazing I’m glad I waited to find the perfect UD palette to get.
    for a “nude” palette I prefer thebalm’s nude tude instead of the naked palette

  2. Jaziekat says

    Is this out now? It’s defiantly on my radar :)

  3. ericaandee says

     Thanks for the tip about using black liner under the deeper, more vibrant colors. I’ve never tried that before.

  4. Phyrra says

    Love your swatches :) Also, you’re right, the color looks great on top of Perversion. Thank you for sharing that tip!

  5. monka says

    is this palette limited edition?

    Hey Leesha!  I have the Perversion pencil, but I have to say a more affordable dupe of it is the bareMinerals ‘Round the Clock pencil in Midnight.  Just as deep a black, and I have to say, it wears even longer than Perversion!!  I just figured I’d suggest that since it is one of my favorite eye pencils

  7. Angelleoubre says

    Hey leesha i was wondering if the palette can be removed from the zipper casing or not i am in love with this palette and hoping to get it for my 20th birthday next month and i was so excited when i got the email showing you uploaded a review and swatches thanks love it hope you upload more videos soon :) have a great day

  8. Lcheatwood2000 says

    Omg.. I’m soo in love with the color loaded. It’s a very sultry sexy smokey color. Can’t wait to see what u come up with using that color. Thanks for the in your face pics of the eyeshadows, they look great :)

    Thanks again

  9. Tootsie50roll says

    Is this palette a part of their permanent collection?  I hope so!

  10. Em says

    wow. in love with the Mushroom shade. you should soooooooooo do a tutorial :D

  11. The Magpie says

    FYI The booklet is being sold separately at Urbandecay.com if you want the looks but not the entire palette. And UD make an even better matte black than blackout…check out the Black Palette for the sootiest, inkiest matte black shadow in the world, Black Dog (which btw, if you own The Black Palette, makes this palette sadly redundant in many ways!).
    Great photos and swatches, I have a feeling I won’t own this palette unless someone gets it for me bc I’m still undecided between Naked and Naked2. I own neither and want both! Glad I bought The Black Palette but wish I hadn’t bought BoS 3. Naked wouldve been the better investment.

    1. lguinn says

      Naked is better than Naked2 IMO.

  12. Katie says

    so glad i’m not the only one who thought the brown backdoor thing was weird.

  13. MahiMahi713 says

    Is the thing inside the case metal? or is it just plastic/cardboard? 

  14. Sarah says

    Great post Leesha! Sadly, I’m just not excited to buy this, (though I probably will eventually). I have all of their palettes, and as you said, I have 5 of the 10, and already have shades way too similar to the others! Great for a beginner or someone new to UD palettes though!

  15. Jenny Clinkenbeard says

     I definitely think I’ll get this, or at least put on my birthday/Christmas list.  The only color I have is Blackout, and I’m totally cool with having more of it.  I love that super pigmented, matte, black.  I also really want Perversion, and I love that they have a Look Book. 

  16. Brittany Nelson says

    Amazing swatches! I can’t wait to try it out. Thanks for posting it.

  17. Mariam says

    it looks like the sigma paris palette – almost !

  18. Michelle G says


  19. Lauren says

    backdoor is a nasty name for a brown eyeshadow

    1. Elizabeth_bluefaerie says

      ya completeley agree double nasty cuz the shadow happens to be brown

  20. Kelly says

    The palette looks really cool and the colours are very pigmented and pretty however they’re not very original, I feel like I have something similar for almost every colour, except Mushroom. I do really like the swatch of Perversion eyeliner, I might get that one. 

  21. Lex says

    I need to get this before I go on vacation. Something tells me the zipper closure and large variety will be exactly what I need in these hot summer days.

  22. Valerie39 says


  23. Autumn Angel says

    Self: Owns 5 pre-existing shades. Will probably buy this palette anyway. Sigh. Makeup addiction, how you complicate my life!

  24. Ejklages11 says

    I’m saving up for this :) such a great idea! Thanks for letting us know about it, Leesh!

  25. Alexus says

    I love UD and it’s great that they came out with a new palette, I just wish that they would let the consumer pick the color for the same price of there new palette… I think that it would be great if they did something like that, I realize that they have a single es, in a pot and you can depot that but for the price of that it’s not worth it . Really 18 per shadow x 6 that’s  108 plus tax hello … Sorry this is not a bash on the company at all just say’in it be nice to see if they would consider doing something for the consumer who love the products and would like to have a good deals. Btw great review and swatches Leesha! Thank you for your time :)

  26. curlygirl says

    A brown shade called ‘backdoor’. How unfortunate.

  27. Jolleen-Thegrafittiedgardenia says

    love this palette can’t wait to get it!!!

  28. Erin Schiedow says

    VERY informative Leesha!! I knew I wanted this palette when it came out but I’m DEFINITELY getting it now. Thanks!!! :)

  29. Leela Villacis says

     Couldn’t wait to get this pallet after you featured it and now i got it I LOVE IT!! thanks

  30. makeupmattersbylnc says

    I am really surprised how much more I use this palette than either of the Nakeds. I really like it!

  31. Fish X.r Yu says

    I think after watching your tons UD products reviews I’m going to get the smoked palette, cause the perversion liner itself worth the pick. it always bothers me when come to line my waterline, the staying power and pigmentation eyeliners I’ve used so far are not doing the favor as I expected, they all just gone within an hour. Have to definitely give perversion a shot!

    I’ve already own several UD palettes, they’re more than just amazing! ^ ^

    I have a website I will be updating a few times a week with original animations and short films along with concept art pertaining to the animated graphics and additional kinds of media. How can I copyright laws everything upon my site so that the copyright info I possess on the bottom level of every page “All primary content (C) 2008 (My Name)” in fact means something? Will my logo, site name, all of the content become copyrighted?.
