Urban Decay Naked Reloaded Eyeshadow Palette Review & Swatches

Last Summer, we said goodbye to the palette that started it all– the Original Naked Palette. It was a game changer in the beauty community and certainly set the standard for beauty lovers all over. We were promised that something new would be coming and now the time has finally come. Urban Decay recently launched a new, glowed up version aptly named the Urban Decay Reloaded Eyeshadow Palette. It features 11 all-new shades and the return of one cult-favorite. Basically, it’s another retake on the neutrals.

The 12 shadows contained are described as being universally flattering for any age, gender, and skin tone. You need not worry about hitting pan early on. Urban Decay has you covered. The four outer pans are bigger, and feature the shades you’ll use the most. There’s even a pop of a bright peach that stands out among warm and cool mattes, metallics, and iridescent micro-shimmers.

This new iteration has the most beautiful packaging. Cue heart eyes emoji here. According to UD founder Wende, the packaging was inspired by a vision of “flowers with an edge” The floral design wraps from the front to the back. It has a slim design with a beautiful cushiony, fabric cover. I can’t help but run my fingers along back and forth. Once opened, there is a sizable mirror, however an eyeshadow brush is not included like its other Naked palette family counterparts. I don’t mind this at all. I usually have eyeshadow brushes on hand when applying makeup at home and at work.


Blur-light nude matte

Boundaries-warm terra-cotta mate

Bucked-warm brown matte

Distilled-bronze metallic

Dreamweaver-cool brown with iridescent sparkle

End Game-chocolate brown matte

Burn-coppery burgundy metallic

Reputation-deep rose gold with iridescent micro shimmer

Retro-bright peach matte

Angel Fire-pale rose gold with iridescent micro shimmer

Barely Baked-soft gold metallic

Bribe-Warm ivory matte

The palette performs beautifully. Even without primer, the shadows blend smoothly and work cohesively together. Boundaries, Bucked and Endgame are my three favorite shades in the palette. They are smooth, pigmented and have great lasting power—all of what I’ve come to expect from their line of eyeshadow palette offerings. I am really enjoying this new take on the neutrals.

The Urban Decay Naked Reloaded Palette will retail for $44 and will be available tomorrow online at Sephora. You can sign up for notifications here. It is slated to be available in stores March 7th. It is also currently available on the Urban Decay site and will also be sold at Nordstrom, Macy’s and Ulta.
