Review: Urban Decay Naked Smoky Eyeshadow Palette & Swatches

Hello lovelies, 

Urban Decay launched their newest addition to the Naked collection in the form of the Smoky palette*. It was released on the 30th July in the UK so is available to buy now! 
The palette is packed with twelve smoky and sultry shades, which includes 9 brand new, never before seen shades and 3 exclusive shades, all perfect for the ultimate smoky eye. 

I am already a huge fan of Urban Decay, especially their naked and naked basic palettes, they are my day to day go to products so this is right up my street. It includes a good selection of shimmer, matte and satin shades. As with the other Naked palettes, it also includes a dual ended eyeshadow brush, with a fluffy end and also a pencil brush for more precision. 
As to be expected with a smoky palette, there are quite a few dark, grey-black shades that I personally wouldn't reach for that often, however perfect for a smoky eye, which this palette is intended for however it also includes pale shimmer and matte shades for a everyday make up look. 
The packaging is slightly different to the other 3 naked palettes. This time it is plastic and has like a grey and black smoked, marble effect which I personally love and think it compliments it perfectly.  It is also held together with a magnetic closure and includes a mirror. 
They are not arranged by colour in the palette but from most shimmery to least shimmery i.e matte and the darkest shades are situated in the middle. 
My favourite shades are High, which is a champagne shimmer shade and also Combust, which is a sandy, cream matte shade similar to my skin tone. There is a mixture of both warm and cool shades. They are velvety and soft to touch and blend beautifully  Urban Decay say that 'Each shade features our pigment infusion system, the proprietary blend of ingredients that gives every shade its velvety texture, rich colour, serious staying power and blendability. 
The Urban Decay Smoky palette is available to buy now for £38.

Is this something you will try and get your hands on?
