Urban Decay NAKED Flushed Palette Review, Swatches, Photos


With the early spring releases from Urban Decay, you’ll find the new NAKED Flushed Palette. (BTW, did you see the new NAKED Skin Beauty Balm and NAKED Nail Kit yet?) NAKED Flushed is a trio of beauty essentials; a bronzer, highlighter, and blush in one convenient compact.

Urban Decay NAKED Flushed

What’s included:

  • Bronzer — sheer medium bronze satin
  • Highlighter — soft pink champagne shimmer
  • Blush — dusty rose satin with a hint of shimmer 

If there’s anything lacking in this palette, it’s certainly not pigment, because I can achieve great pigment payoff. Maybe even just a little too much with the blush. I thought the texture of the three when I ran my fingers along them felt pretty silky—with the highlighter being the silkiest of the bunch, it’s almost buttery!

With length of wear—on top of a BB cream, NAKED Flushed makes it almost all day, with a little bit of fading as the day winds down. Urban Decay recommends the use of the Good Karma Optical Blurring Blush, but when I tried it, I picked up way too much product with the exception of the bronzer. The Optical Blurring Brush worked fab with the bronzer, but not so much with the blush and highlighter for me.

All three products are free of parabens, fragrances, alcohol, and mineral oil.

Bottom Line…

While the bronzer can seem a little stiff, it’s a nice medium tone that doesn’t look too dark. The highlighter glides on so smoothly—and a little goes a long way. I love the highlighter the most in this palette. The blush is super smooth, and very, very pigmented—make sure to use a light hand.
