Urban Decay

There’s no shortage of eyeshadow palettes stocking the beauty shelves, but something about the *iconic* Urban Decay Naked Eyeshadow Palettes makes them irresistible—I still remember how giddy I was when my mom bought me the original Naked (RIP) in high school. Those 12 shimmery and matte colors encased in brown velvet created every single one of my makeup looks for nearly a decade. (If you can relate, you’re a real one.)

Point being, I’m a true Urban Decay loyalist. I’ve even been using the same color eyeliner (smog if you’re wondering) since high school too. And with every new palette launch within the Naked Collection, there have been some pretty high expectations to live up to.

ICYMI, the original Naked Eyeshadow Palette may have died, but the Naked Collection is still growing strong—its newest addition being Naked x Robin Eisenberg ($54; urbandecay.com). It’s the first Naked palette that was done as a collaboration; the brand teamed up with Robin Eisenberg, an LA-based artist serving major galactic gamer girl vibes within her art.  In true Naked palette fashion, it features 12 shades (seven shimmery and five matte) and a dual-ended brush. 

First impression when compared to the legacy Naked palettes: It’s certainly the most colorful Naked collection to date. The colors range from neutral and burgundy tones inspired by California sunsets to cool, deep purples and blues inspired by Robin’s signature celestial colors found in her artwork

The best part of this palette is that it takes everything we know and love about Urban Decay neutrals and blends it with the grungier, darker side of the brand’s personality. My favorite shades are the light terracotta called “Solar Storm” (for something neutral), and the pool blue called “Home Planet” (if you’re looking for a bit of edge). The colors remind me of my two favorite Sky Wash colors from Glossier, which I’ve since moved to the back of my makeup collection after snagging these very pigmented powder shadows. Similar to the other Naked palettes, I find that you don’t need an eyeshadow primer with these as they have a 12-hour wear time. That being said, if you are heading out for a long night or sporting an entire glitter look, I would recommend the brand’s Primer Potion ($25; sephora.com) to prevent fallout.

Overall, I love how surprisingly multi-purpose the hues are. I normally never stray too far from neutrals, but even the “intergalactic” colors are more wearable and don’t look too intimidating when swiped on your lids. You can check out the site for a couple inspiration looks, including a Blue Smokey Eye, Supernova Shimmer Cat Eye, and Stardust Eyeshadow Wing. 

But don’t wait too long—this palette is limited-edition, so it will only exist for as long as supplies last! The brand will also be sharing looks and tips on how to use it until it sells out. If you’re looking to revamp your eyeshadow collection or simply give this amazing palette to a friend for the holidays, score the Naked x Robin Eisenberg palette while you can. You can shop it now for $54 at Urban Decay, Sephora, and Ulta

While you’re at it, you can always shop the other iconic Naked palettes (all of them amazing in their own right), below.

Naked Reloaded


Fun fact: Did you know the OG Naked Palette was only supposed to be four shades? Instead, the product development team each came to the table with four of their favorite neutral hues to create the ultimate iconic nude palette. Since discontinued (sob), the love for neutrals is paid tribute in this Reloaded Palette—including some of the most popular and universal shades you know and love.

Naked 3


You guessed it—this was the third iteration of the original Naked Palette. It leans into the neutrals we know and love from Urban Decay but with a feminine spin, including shades like dusty rose and smokey pink. My personal favorites are Burnout, Truck, and Mugshot.

Naked Honey


We love a golden eye moment! This palette includes gold, amber, and chocolatey browns for the perfect smokey eye. My personal favorite: The golden “Honey” shade, which actually has a powder-to-liquid effect that shines like gold foil once applied. 

Naked Wild West


This palette showcases desert-inspired neutrals with soft browns, warm terracotta browns, burnt orange sunset colors, and a small splash of turquoise and blue. If you’re looking for a palette that has both warm and cool shades, this one is for you. 

Naked Heat


Want something a bit spicier? Reach for Naked Heat, which includes burnt reds, amber tones, and deep browns. Even though it skews warm, the 12-pan warm palette looks surprisingly flattering on all skin tones.
