Naked Flushed by Urban Decay.


The first review from my little haul! As I’ve said loads before I’m really into contouring and highlighting at the minute. Most of the products I use for this are Illamasqua that I unfortunately cannot afford to wear all the time. I’ve been looking for a little duo/trio palette to use everyday so I picked up Naked Flushed by Urban Decay as I’m already a big fan of the Naked eye-shadow palettes.

This lovely compact has everything a girl needs for glowing cheeks! It contains a matte bronzer, which is medium-tan with orange-brown undertones. A champagne beige highlighter with a frosted finish and a medium-dark rosy pink blush is a with a hint of coral and a matte finish.

The 3 shades can be blended together or worn separately. I was a bit wary of the bronzer on my pale skin to begin with. In the compact it looks rather orange but I was pleasantly surprised. It’s not as well pigmented as other bronzers I’ve used but this isn’t necessarily a bad thing as it avoids oompa-loompa cheeks! The finish is matte, which is my personal favourite as it looks more natural. I don't think I would use this as a contour shade due to the orange tones, but it gives a lovely sun-kissed look!

Lately I’ve gone off blush as I’ve just been contouring, but when I do wear it I love a bright candy pink colour. The shade in this palette was a bit too dark for me personally, but applied lightly and blended with the bronzer it can give a cute rosy look. I just unfortunately wouldn’t wear it alone.

Top: Bronzer. Middle: Highlighter. Bottom:Blush. 
The highlighter is the final colour and it’s also much darker than anyone I’ve used before! This isn’t a negative, just something to be aware of. I usually dust my highlighter lightly on top of the cheekbones but I find it quite hard to do with this. It’s quite a heavy product so you have to be very light-handed with it. When it does work how I want it looks lovely and glowing, it just takes more concentration to get there!

All in all I was slightly disappointed in this palette, I wouldn’t wear it for a night out or anything I needed long-wear for. But if I was just popping out for a bit or I fancied a rosy glow for work this would do the job nicely! Although I like the bronzer I don’t think I’ll be repurchasing just for one colour! Have you guys tried Naked Flushed? What other contour kits should I look into? xo


  1. I have looked at this palette before but was put off by the highlighter and blush. Think this post has reinforced that I shouldn't get it!
    I haven't tried it, but I have heard so many great things about the Sleek contour kit!
