Urban Decay is just gonna ride the "Naked" thing until the wheels fall off! and how can you blame them? the line thus far has been uber-successful for the brand. this time they're taking on the world of blush, bronzers and highlighters.
the Flushed trio comes packaged in a compact similar but slightly larger than the Naked Basic eyeshadow palette and includes a mirror, making it convenient to throw in your makeup bag for touch-ups on-the-go.
my one gripe is that all three products are in the same pan. call me crazy but products packaged like this drive me crazy because they get super messy the more you use them and the colors tend to run together.
♥ the bronzer - the largest strip of the palette is described as a medium bronze satin (this shade will be useless for WOC with deeper skintones, which is unfortunate)
♥ the highlighter - the smallest strip, sits between the blush and the bronzer, is described as a soft pink champagne shimmer
while there isn't anything unique about the 3 shades included in this palette, Flushed definitely holds its own against other brands. and when all 3 products are used together the effect is perfection. Urban Decay got it right with this color combination. Flushed makes for a great go-to palette for everyday looks and perfect for the spring and summer.
and did i mention how fabulous they feel on the skin? these powders are so finely milled, apply like a dream and blending is effortless.
Flushed isn't a must-have, but is a nice-to-have. especially, for those that don't have a lot of time in the mornings and don't want to put a lot of thought into what blush to pair with what bronzer or highlight, etc.
the Naked Flushed palette retails for $30 and is available through Urban Decay (although it looks as though it is currently out of stock), Sephora and Ulta.
