Urban Decay are basically the undisputed rulers of the palette kingdom world in my eyes, as far as nude shades go – they win hands down with their Naked range. Then they went and turned the standards up a notch by adding a cheek palette into the mix…
The Naked Flushed palette is a trio of shades – a bronzer/contour colour, a pinky shimmering highlight and a peachy pink blusher. Basically the three basics you need for the perfect cheek look.
I like the shades in this palette and the trio of colours do cover the essentials of what you need for a lovely look but I can’t help but feel like they could have taken this that little bit further and put the palette on the same sort of lust-list status as the Naked 1 an Naked 2 palettes. Perhaps a selection of 3 or 4 blusher shades that perk complexions up – maybe a pink, a peach, one with a shimmer and a cream version? Just thinking out loud on that one (and writing it down).
I do really like the blusher shade and the shimmer but I struggle to make the bronzer/contour work for me as it’s that little bit too yellow which doesn’t really work for my skin tone. If I had to pick one shade from the trio I’d say the blusher is the most flattering of the three as it’s pink enough to brighten but just enough of a glow to look healthy.
Overall, this is a great partner for the Naked Basics palette as a small and easy to carry around essential that has all you need in a compact little package.
