Coming Soon: Urban Decay Naked Smoky Palette (aka: Naked 4)

I realize this doesn't fit the theme of Nouveau Cheap, but I'm posting about it for a few reasons. First, it's always an event when Urban Decay releases a new Naked palette (this could be considered Naked 4, even though the actual name is Naked Smoky) and also, that means that it will only be a matter of time before the flood of Naked Smoky dupes hit the market. And we all love dupes around here--especially UD Naked dupes, right?

That said, this palette contains nine new shades and three repromotes. More info:

  • Preliminary swatches reposted by Sophia (@lipstickjunkieforever) HERE

What do you think of this new Naked palette so far? Think you'll save your pennies to buy the real thing, or await the onslaught of dupes (or both...or neither)?


  1. Oh, that's gorgeous. I'll probably wait for the dupes though, I just can't bring myself to pay that much for eyeshadow...

  2. I'll pass on this one. Too dark overall for me although the smoky eye looks good on some. I'd hoped the next Naked palette would be purples and greens.

  3. Have to give them kudos for so many new shades.. and the only repromotes are from Vice palettes which were LE.

  4. Xsparkage has swatches on her blog

  5. I'm gonna pass too. I'm only seeing about three shades that look interesting. The rest are meh. I too had hoped for some purples and greens.

  6. Budget issues means having to wait for dupes =\

  7. I'm not as excited about this as I expected. I only wear neutrals and love the NAKED line for that reason (no hopes for green or purple here), but this collection just doesn't seem as special as N1 or N2. I was maybe hoping for "50 Shades of Naked" with a bunch of gray, stone, and taupe shades. Sort of 'UD does a Bobbi Brown palette.' N2 still has a lot of warm shades with Chopper, Half Baked, etc. I want a palette full of colors like Pistol and N2B.

    1. Hey Cara, Temptalia posted swatches on her Instagram and I THINK you might be happy with how many grays are in this one! Check it out:

  8. Greens and purples 😓 but I wouldn't mind dupues of the shimmery half of the palette.
