The Urban Decay Naked eye shadow palette has become a cult classic for beauty lovers, and now there's a new version of the makeup-bag staple. The latest addition to the collection is all about neutrals and pinks. There are 12 new shades packed into one convenient palette. We explore the complete Naked 3 set plus the new coordinating eye pencils, but it’s up to you to buy before it sells out!
Bright makeup colors are huge during the Summer months, but wearing them can be a fine line between looking cool and looking clown-like. The best way to show off bold eye makeup is to look at the color wheel for answers. Whether you have a beautiful brown shade, baby blues, or vibrant hazel eyes, we have three power colors that will accentuate your peepers and provide a fun shift away from your normal brown and black shades.

If there's one product you buy for Spring, make it a gorgeous makeup palette. Urban Decay never disappoints in this category, and this season the brand is showcasing two fresh palettes with 16 brand-new shades. Lorac's palette is convenient as a clutch, and NYX makes creating a smoky eye a cinch. Preview our favorite five before you purchase in today's Beauty Review. On Kirbie: Yumi Kim blouse.
The secret to its invincibility appears to lie in its massive pigment payoff. We've been applying the orange and fuchsia shades (Punch Drunk and Crush, respectively) together to create a custom neon pink, then blotting and pressing it into our lips for a matte finish. And even after that, the stuff's so highly pigmented that it stays around for the rest of the day. It's much brighter (and longer lasting) than almost any lip stain we've tried.
The only downside is that the high opacity limits the color's versatility. You can blot it down or try to dilute it with gloss, but you'll be working a long time before you get any kind of sheer or subtle result. Still, we'd never knock anything with this much staying power, and if you love vibrant lip color, you may finally have met your match. We know we did.
How do you follow up on the best-selling eye shadow palette of all time? With a beautiful sequel, of course. Today, Urban Decay unveils Naked 2 ($50), the follow-up to the flattering Naked palette. Housed in a taupe tin case, these 12 neutral shadows can be used to create a natural look, a dramatic evening eye, or anything in between — it's that versatile. Get the first look at this palette in our video, then head to our Facebook page for some close-up photos.
Deep End, Chase, and Deeper are all flat-out stunning shades that should be added to the brand's permanent collection ASAP, and other colors, such as Omen, Midnight Rodeo, and Evidence, are good candidates as well. Their staying power is excellent, and you'll almost certainly be the only one wearing these shades around. The windows to your soul will thank you for the awesome paint job.
If we could all be born with naturally long, luscious eyelashes, then there wouldn't be a need for false lashes or products like Latisse. Luckily, you don't need a prescription to try out eyelash growth serums. Many brands, such as MAC, Urban Decay, RevitaLash, and SmartLash, offer up longer, thicker lashes without a trip to the dermatologist. The question is: do they work? We put all four brands to the test, so watch the video to see our results.
