Just when you thought that they couldn’t release another Naked palette, Urban Decay drops another one. It’s the Naked Wild West Eyeshadow Palette. A whole new look for Urban Decay!
The palette has a wild west vibe with all the colors and shades you would expect to find in a desert, specifically the Californian deserts. Let’s find out if this palette is worth splashing on!
You would think that Urban Decay would’ve run out of colour combinations by now. But no, they shock us again by coming up with a whole new colour story.
I’ve never quite seen an eyeshadow palette like the Wild West, it reminds me a little of the Melt Cosmetics Smoke Sessions palette, but it’s not close enough to call it a dupe.
The colours of the Wild West palette remind me of the fashion a decade ago, when aqua, turquoise and brown were all the rage. When I look back at those photos of myself I cringe at the thought of putting those colours together.
But who knows, maybe Urban Decay is bringing back that decade-old trend?! I feel like Covid has definitely brought out some interesting sides to us all!
The Naked Wild West Eyeshadow Palette is a 12-pan vegan and cruelty-free palette.
The colours were inspired by the Californian deserts, with the endless sky and sand, and the Joshua trees that are found there, hence the name Wild West. I love how the palette’s packaging fits into the desert vibe with its snakeskin emboss. The packaging is totally gorgeous, and a makeup piece that any collector will need to get their hands on!
Included in the palette is a double-ended eyeshadow brush which is always a useful touch. Like the eyeshadow palette, the brush is also vegan!
The palette has a combination of creamy matte, metallics and shimmers that have the same fabulous formula as the other Naked eyeshadow palettes.
There are 8 mattes, 2 metallics and 2 shimmers to choose from. The palette also has a few good base colours and a few options for smokey eyes too- both of which are a must-have for every eyeshadow palette!
The shadows are all super-creamy, intensely pigmented and easy to blend! The palette is the same top-quality palette as the other Urban Decay palettes we’ve all come to love.
The colour combination is definitely interesting and original, and perhaps slightly too out of the box for most people. If you love trying out green and brown eyeshadow, you’ll love this palette.
You can create a variety of eyeshadow looks including bold and very unique ones.
While I’m generally a fan of Urban Decay Eyeshadow Palettes, some of their color choices are simply not for me. The Naked Wild West is one of those palettes that I’m happy to look at on the screen and skip adding to my basket. And I’m sure I’m not alone in that!
It has some pretty neutrals, but this isn’t a neutral palette, it’s mainly filled with greens and browns. It’s definitely targeted at a smaller audience.
Like all Urban Decay full-sized eyeshadow palettes, the Wild West is on the pricey side. That being said, if you love the colors and it’s within your budget, it’s a palette you’ll love and get a lot of use out of!
