Urban Decay Naked Cherry palette: Review & Swatches

We’re back with another review! If you follow me on Twitter or Instagram you will know that I love Urban Decay, especially the Naked palettes. I’m obsessed with them, seriously. They’ve been featured on this blog before, so it was only right that I did a Naked Cherry palette review to give you all the low down. Better late than never right? Keep reading to find out if it’s buy or bye for this palette!

Naked Cherry palette packaging:

The packaging for the Naked Cherry palette has the same structure as the previous two palettes (Heat and Smokey) and so feels so much sturdier than the first three Naked palettes. Again, it has a magnetic clasp meaning you’re not gonna end up with it accidentally opening and making a mess when you travel. Now as this is the ‘Cherry’ palette, it’s only fitting that there are a lot of cherries on the front. Cute! To fit in with the theme of the palette it’s a lovely purple colour with elegant gold lettering and so really stands out, if you have a lot of palettes like me! Like always there is a big mirror and a double ended brush, which I think is needed to justify the price. I love the Urban Decay brushes, with one side allowing more precision, and the other great for blending. They’re excellent quality so I’m glad I have another one in my collection!

The Naked Cherry shadows and swatches:

Like all of the Naked palettes, there are 12 eyeshadows that are a mixture of mattes, metallics and shimmers. The Naked Cherry palette is very versatile, ranging from highlight shades to deep intense cherry colours. Below is a low down of the shades (swatched left to right (bottom to top on picture)):

  • Hot spot – ivory matte 
  • Caution – pale beige matte 
  • Bang Bang – iridescent pink shimmer (with a hint of gold) 
  • Feelz – dusty pink matte 
  • Juicy – peach matte
  • Turn on – metallic rose shimmer
  • Ambitious – metallic rose copper 
  • Bing – dark mauve matte
  • Devilish – plum matte
  • Young love – metallic cranberry

My Thoughts:

It’s no secret that I love Urban Decay shadows, they’re creamy, blend like a dream and are extremely pigmented. It’s also amazing that the brand is 100% cruelty-free. I wanted to wait until I’d taken photos before I swatched and played with the shadows. But, me being me, couldn’t resist… oops! First of all, all of the shades are beautiful. If you’ve been following this blog for a while, you will know that I lurrrvee warm toned shades. It was only natural that I couldn’t resist this palette. It does remind me ‘slightly’ of the Naked Heat palette but is more purple as opposed to red.

Caution is perfect to use as a transition shade, allowing all of the other shadows to blend out beautifully. I love ‘Hot spot’ is great as an inner corner of brow bone highlight. However, I would prefer a more shimmery highlight to give more of an impact. You know me, I love to glow. Devilish and Bling are perfect for adding more depth and definition to the crease and outer corner, and they look fab on the lower lash line.

Eyeshadow look – caution, feelz and devlish in the crease. Privacy in the outer corner. Hot spot in the inner corner and brow bone. Ambitious and turn on is all over the lid. Lashes are from Kiss Products in ‘Little Black Dress’

Overall I really do love this palette, and I think it is perfect for the winter, especially Christmas. I am super excited to play with this palette in the spring, as Bang Bang would be stunning to use in an everyday subtle look. Obviously, quite a lot of the shades are a bit more ‘out-there’ and so if you’re after a day to day neutral palette, this is not the one for you. But, if you want something different in your collection or want to experiment with some brighter colours, definitely give this a try!

So that is my Naked Cherry palette review!

    Ohh, these shades look fab. Atm I’m looking for a.good.palette, and I’ll probably go with Urban Decay, I just have to figure out which Naked palette to choose.

    • BeingChloe173

      There’s quite a few (obvs no original anymore) so it depends what you like! I’d say Naked 2 and 3 are more natural and day to day, whereas heat, smokey and cherry are a bit more bold! X

    Great post! This palette looks so nice! I only have the naked 1 palette from urban decay and the setting spray but I really want to try more products

    Urban decay palettes never attract me because shades may be not my kind of. But this palettes seems interesting. Shade range is beautiful. May be it a time to give it a chance?? Nice review btw?

      Thankyou! If you like purpled and warm tones then you’ll definitely like this one ?

  9. December 10, 2018 / 5:05 pm

    The look you’ve created with this is gorgeous! I also love the look of the brush you get with it! This palette was probably one of the only urban decay ones i’ve told myself i wont get, just because i’ve probably collectivley got all of those shades in other palettes so theres no point me buying some that i technically already have. There’s no doubt in the quality of UD shadows though, i love them but it’s just not a palette i’d get much use out of. Loved your review though x

    • BeingChloe173
      December 10, 2018 / 5:08 pm

      Thanks Ellie! I love the brush! It’s great that you’re doing that, I think I need that willpower to not buy every palette! It’s going to be one of my New Years revolutions so hopefully I will stick to it haha! Thanks for reading x

      Aww thank you so much! I love the personally because the pigment is so good that you only need to use a small amount so it lasts for ages! Thanks for reading.

    this is such a beautiful palette. I haven’t forgiven urban decay for discontinuing the original naked palette yet but once i do i’ll have to pick up this palette. I have heard some say this is what they were wishing the naked 3 was like which is nice to know that the brand does listen to the feedback of their customers and try to meet their needs. great review! xx

      I know I’m devastated, I love the OG palette! It is great that they do that rather than just following trends x

  13. December 15, 2018 / 9:02 pm

    wow that palette is beautiful! I love the shades Turn On and Bing. Great review, I definitely need to find this when I next go shopping ? X

      Aww thankyou, haha treat yourself if you’re going! x

  14. December 23, 2018 / 9:13 am

    I totally agree with you that it reminds me of naked heat, the warmth in the colours are very similar. I’m so going to do that look your created on Christmas Day, I haven’t experimented enough with this palette. Saying that I’m not that great at eyeshadow. Wanna work on my skills but have no idea where to start!

    • BeingChloe173
      December 23, 2018 / 9:29 am

      It’s really easy! I’d say matte browns in the crease, with some purple and then shimmer all over the lid! Just keep practicing lovely, that’s what I’m doing, I’m gonna focus on it more in the new year! X

  15. December 27, 2018 / 2:20 pm

    Great post Chloe. I love UD. My whole make up bag is more or less dedicated exclusively to the brand. Thanks for sharing this.

      December 27, 2018 / 2:35 pm

      Haha I can relate to that! Urban decay everywhere! Thanks for reading!
