Urban Decay Naked Reloaded Palette swatches
So Urban Decay decided to discontinue their ground braking Naked 1 palette, and replaced it with this, the Naked Reloaded palette. We definitely see similarities with the old palette of course. What’s extra was the size of the two shades at both ends. They are larger than other shades, because the brand thinks these are the most used shades and therefore will need a larger size. I like that idea.
However, I think this palette is much lighter than the original palette overall, and as I like Smoky eyes, I liked the original palette much more. This one leans too much neutral and is kinda boring. But that’s just me.
OK Here’s the official description: THE NEW NEUTRALS
We changed the eyeshadow game forever with our original Naked Palette, so it’s only natural that we’d rethink neutral. Meet the Naked Reloaded Eyeshadow Palette, with 12 all-new, universally flattering shades designed for everyone—for any age, gender, and skin tone.
Naked Reloaded was designed with every makeup bag in mind. The four outer pans are bigger for the shades you’ll use the most. With silky mattes, metallics, and micro-shimmers, this eyeshadow palette has the nudes you’ll always need, all in one place. Because we all look better Naked.
The essential Naked palette, featuring 12 all-new eyeshadow shades that redefine neutral with Urban Decay’s signature formula.
Reinvent. Redefine. Rethink neutral. Meet the Naked Reloaded Eyeshadow Palette, with 12 all-new, universally flattering shades designed for everyone—any age, gender, and skin tone.
The new neutrals are here, and they’re anything but ordinary. Naked Reloaded is the essential palette with the nudes you’ll always need, all in one place. Bonus: We made the four outer pans in the palette bigger for the shades you’ll use the most. From silky mattes and metallics to iridescent micro-shimmers, these 12 versatile shadows contain our mind-blowing formula, with its velvety texture, rich color, and extreme blendability.
Created with every makeup bag in mind, Naked Reloaded is a game-changer. Start with Bribe, a warm ivory matte, as the perfect base, and add depth with dimensional metallics like Burn or Distilled. We’re addicted to Dreamweaver, a cool brown with iridescent 3D sparkle, and Retro, an unexpectedly bright peach matte.
No matter where you're headed or who you want to be, Naked Reloaded is all about you—because we all look better Naked.
Tips: Mix shadows with your favorite Eyeshadow Primer Potion to create cream shadows with major staying power.
Get creative with mattes! Load up and spray the brush with All Night Setting Spray for intensified finishes or graphic designs.
Achieve the ultimate blown-out look by using a clean UD Pro Blending Brush to softly blend the outer edges – when you think you’re done blending, blend some more!

I have not tried these on my lids, so I can’t comment on their application and longevity. But since its Urban Decay, they should be quite good quality ( they wouldn’t want to compromise their brand by selling a s#itty permanent palette)
So what do you think? Would you buy it?
