When I received the Urban Decay Naked Cherry Palette, I knew I had to review it. Firstly, I love Urban Decay as a brand, & especially their eyeshadow palettes. The Urban Decay Naked Cherry Palette includes 12 ALL-NEW shades, with a selection of soft mattes & metallics. This eyeshadow palette is 100% cruelty-free like all products in the Urban Decay brand.
Hot Spot (ivory matte)
Caution (soft neutral beige matte)
Bang Bang (shimmering pink with gold shift and iridescent micro-sparkle)
Feelz (soft dusty rose matte)
Juicy (soft warm peach)
Turn On (pale metallic rose shimmer)
Ambitious (metallic rose copper)
Bing (deep mauve matte)
Devilish (reddish plum matte)
Young Love (metallic cranberry)
Drunk Dial (deep metallic burgundy)
Privacy (deep brownish-plum matte)
In the look I filmed, I used Hot Spot / Bang Bang / Feelz / Bing / Devilish / Young Love / Privacy
My favourite shades would definitely be Feelz & Privacy. When you look at Feelz in the pan, it doesn’t do it any justice. However, when I layered it in my crease, it created the most amazing build up of colour that blended effortlessly. Privacy is also a lovely shade. I love that it is a brown with a plum undertone. I don’t own any shadows that are a similar shade to Privacy.

The packaging of the Urban Decay Naked Cherry Palette is superb! I am so in love with it. Not only does the outside have copper detailing, but there are also cherries all over the outside mimicking the eyeshadow shades. Talk about attention to detail! The palette retails for R875.00, which is in line with Urban Decay pricing for a palette. This particular palette was sent to me by the brand, however I don’t hesitate to spend my coin on Urban Decay palettes because they’re so worth it. You will get your full wear of it. Trust.
I can’t write this review without mentioning what happened to me the day after filming the above video. The morning after filming, I woke up with red, sore, inflamed eyes. I was leaving for Australia that day, so I went to the pharmacy & picked up some eye ointment for allergies & eye drops. 2 years ago when I tried the Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance palette I woke up the next morning with my eyes looking the same, so I assumed it was the same situation. I did speak with the UD team, & at the time we thought it was perhaps an allergy to the pink shadows. Red pigments in pink shadows are known to have this effect on sensitive eyes. My eyes took a few days to heal while in Australia. Since then, I have not used the Naked Cherry palette. However, the other day while using a different palette I had a similar experience, although not as severe. I am not an expert, however a MUA friend has suggested it is likely a bacterial infection that has spread on some of my products. So, yay, it doesn’t look like it’s the palette. But I did still mention my experience because I want you guys to be better than me. I am very bad with not throwing out mascaras; sharpening eye pencils; & not cleaning brushes. I have since thrown out all mascaras & sharpened my pencils. I am yet to clean my brushes, but I have only used clean ones since chatting with my friend. Don’t be lazy like me friends.
