The HUGELY anticipated Urban Decay Naked Smoky Palette is almost here and we had the pleasure of a press preview yesterday to view the little beauty in all its glory.

Us Irish ladies have always been a fan of a smoky eye, so this palette will hit a lot hearts once it hits counters. The thing is though, that there is already a wait list of 8000 people in Ireland, so call a Debenhams counter asap and get your name on a list NOW!

And if, per chance, you still need a reason to believe, let me tell you that the mix of colour tones range from light dusky tones to deep, inky dark tones and have a mix of textures from sheen to matte. There has never been a more perfect palette. There is no more to say! €46 available from August 6th at Debenhams and House of Fraser Dundrum.

THE SKINNY: There’s more to the perfect smoky eye than a heap of dark shadow and a badass attitude. (Although the attitude certainly doesn’t hurt.) The key to nailing the most sought-after and elusive eye look ever? Urban Decay’s Naked Smoky?loaded with ALL the essentials for the perfect neutral smoky eye. We packed our newest Naked palette with a dozen sultry, smoky neutrals?nine never-before-seen shades and three exclusives. Experiment with warm bronzes, dimensional greys, rich browns, gorgeous taupes and deep black. From mattes and satins to shades with sparkle, Naked Smoky has it all. We painstakingly assembled everything you need in one palette: A true range of shades. The perfect brushes. We even included detailed tutorials!

HYPE: Ever buy a beauty product and then realize you have no idea how to use it? Naked Smoky makes sultry, come-hither eyes totally doable. A detailed look book included with the palette breaks down four of our favourite ways to get Naked and smoky. Follow the step-by-step instructions to steal one of our looks (try the Iconic UD Smoky Eye, the Smoky Reality Star, the Smoky Cat or Everyday Smoky), or create your own. We even worked with top makeup artists to get their best tips and tricks for smoky-eye success. And since high-quality brushes are essential, we preloaded the palette with an exclusive double-ended brush. Use the Tapered Crease Brush to lay down shadow, define the crease or blend out colour. To seamlessly fuse shadow and liner, use the Smoky Smudger Brush. Small enough for highlighting the brow bone or the corner of the eye, it’s also ideal for smoking out the lower lash line. (It’s also Wende’s favourite shape for perfect tight-lining.)

THE WAIT: All Urban Decay Counters in Ireland have waiting lists set-up – contact your nearest Debenhams or House of Fraser Dundrum to join the waiting list today

NICE PACKAGE: The case and the brush feature a cool floating smoke effect, with ?Naked Smoky? in gunmetal foil. To add to the mysterious vibe, we set the shadow pans in a smoky transparent base. As mesmerizing as the case is, it’s also practical. A magnetic closure prevents shadow mishaps in your bag, and the full-size mirror makes it easy to get Naked whenever the urge strikes.

BREAK IT DOWN: Each shade in Naked Smoky features our Pigment Infusion System?, the proprietary blend of ingredients that gives every shade its velvety texture, rich colour, serious staying power and bendability.
