Urban Decay Naked Flushed Palette

Mecca Maxima has been teasing us for weeks prior to the official launch of Urban Decay Cosmetics and it's finally here! Over the years I've collected most of their cult favourites including all 3 of their naked eyeshadow palettes, their naked basics palette and a few of their eye primers. I'm still indecisive about whether or not I need their Naked skin foundation or their Beauty Balm but there was one product that I knew I couldn't pass since I had wish listed it for a long, long time now. 

The Urban Decay Naked Flushed palette contains 14g of product in a sleek plastic packaging with a magnetic closure. Included in this palette is a generously sized bronzer, highlight and a blush, a great essential all-in-one palette for those of you like myself who often travel with limited bag space.  This palette is a little on the neutral-warm side but will definitely complements pale to medium-tanned skin tones. 

The texture of these powders are incredibly silky smooth and soft - it's jet-milled formula blends seamlessly on to the skin without crumbling or looking powdery. The bronzer applies sheer with buildable intensity, the highlighter is a gorgeous light-diffusing, pink champagne shimmer that has a beautiful lustre finish and the blush is a highly-pigmented dusty-rose with hints of shimmer. You could apply these individually or or blend them all together for an "all-over glow".

This palette comes in 4 different variants and retails for $46 AUD exclusively at Mecca Maxima. I personally love this product as it shows up so well on my skin (nc15/c1, NARS Gobi, True Match Golden Ivory) and is so easy to blend and contour. I'm still a bit of a novice when it comes to contouring so any product that basically blends itself is a keeper.

What are your thoughts on this palette? And what did everyone get at the UDAustralia launch? Feel free to open a discussion in the comments x


  1. I loved this palette naked and strip are my favourites, naked for a more natural look or strip for a more glam look, I love the blush in streak too :) xxx http://princesscaela89.blogspot.co.uk

  2. Ahh the highlighter looks stunning. Loved the swatches and review, thanks.
