The Urban Decay Naked Wild West Palette


If there's one brand I always look out for when it comes to new beauty releases, it's Urban Decay and they've had some killer launches recently, one of which is the Urban Decay Naked Wild West Palette. Launched in February 2021, it's Urban Decay's first-ever vegan makeup palette and is inspired by the Californian desert - think warm dusky tones, rich terracotta browns and deep coppers plus the most gorgeous blue I've ever set my eyes on.

The Naked collection by Urban Decay is the most well-loved collection of makeup palettes available with the first three in the collection gaining cult classic status. Naked 3 is still one of my all-time favourite palettes but  some of the newer launches are definitely hot on its tail of taking the hot spot for me.



Retailing at £45.00, the desert-inspired palette features twelve shades and a double-ended eyeshadow brush. Chocker full of warm coppers, ambers, and rich browns, in a mix of matte, metallic and shimmer finishes - this seductive set of shadows is perfect for creating day-to-night looks. It has a pop of teal, for a funky fun look, and shimmery bronze shades for a sultry evening eye. Whatever you want to create can be easily done thanks to this little beauty.

The outer packaging is hard plastic, so great for travelling and it features that all-important large mirror inside. Unlike the Naked OG and Naked Reloaded Palettes, which can be folded in half, this one has a hinge that doesn’t allow that, think Naked Heat and Naked Honey. The vegan double-ended brush is great quality as always and features a blending brush and shader brush. Both sides are great for crease work and blending, I've always found the brushes inside Naked palettes to be brilliant and they're always a little bit different to the last so you build up a great little collection.


All of the eye shadows feature their blendable Naked formula which gives each one a velvety texture, rich colour, incredible staying power and blend-ability which is why I use Urban Decay shadows allllll the time. They're just my favourite. You'll see from the swatches below just how incredible the colour pay-off is - It's even better if you use an Urban Decay Primer Potion too! 

The metallic shades apply best with fingers, but that's true of most metallics I find. The mattes are a touch chalky so I needed to pat on the shades more than I do with previous Naked palettes BUT this is a vegan formula so maybe that is why there is a slight difference. You’ll have to be careful not to over blend though, as they can fade with too much brushwork.

My favourites are the shimmers as always, they're not overly shimmery - they're just luminous, smooth and so pretty all over the lid. Urban Decay really hits it out of the park with their shimmer formula. They look and perform more like a satin, with just a hint more sparkle which makes reaching for this most days a dream.



For those that love warm shades with a pop of something special, this palette was designed for you! I like it much more than I thought I would and the shades are much more wearable than I was expecting especially Tex and Bud - those oh so gorgeous blues. I'm reaching for Wild West a lot at the moment. 

The Urban Decay Naked Wild West Palette (£45.00) is available to buy now online and in stores.

  6. That tea shade is stunning! Although I think I'd be a little scared to use it. I'm still living off my Naked 3 palette. Haha.
