When the Urban Decay Naked palette came out, I was a harried first-time mom, enrolled in school full-time, and exhausted. One day, while strolling through the aisles of Sephora, I came upon its beauty. It had every shadow I needed for day or night in one neat package, and it continued for eight beautiful years — the Urban Decay Naked Palette. I wasn't alone. This palette was wildly successful. Unfortunately, we have now been smote by the makeup gods, but while the Urban Decay Naked Palette is being discontinued, there are some other eye candy palettes you can love instead.
Wende Zomnir, founding partner of Urban Decay, told Elle magazine that "Saying goodbye is extremely bittersweet. It was a big moment in our history. It's a little painful to leave your past behind, but it's also essential to always evolve. I will forever miss Naked, but we plan to turn the grief into even more greatness. Urban Decay will continue to thrive in Naked's memory and honor — just wait and see." Will she miss it like I miss it? I mean, if the profits of Urban Decay suddenly go sideways, it's possible, but I doubt it. I've purchased almost every iteration of this product; I'm bereft. Thankfully, I'm also a great shopper, which has led me to find some killer palettes across the makeup spectrum to perk up your peepers, and let me tell you, y'all have got to get on these.
