So I’m not going to let – people saying things yeah I get PR releases and Press samples for shameless promotion of the brand from someone who has some what a social following and I love doing what I do but when I first let started it took me years before i was on anyone’s radar.
When I say “Naked Palette” and you think everyday eye makeup or the very best smoky eyes in the game. Not this time. A brand-new Urban Decay Naked contouring palette is about to drop, and it’s going to be so good. The Urban Decay Naked Skin Shapeshifter was just announced on the beauty brand’s Instagram page. And this isn’t your ordinary contouring palette. In addition to four powdered shades for sculpting, color correcting, illuminating, and adding color to your face, there’s a whole different formula underneath it. If you flip up the powdered section, there are five cream contouring shades underneath. The combo of the two will let you gauge just how natural or intense you want your look to be. Plus, layering them will ensure all-day slay. You might be wondering why this particular highlighting palette gets the famous nudist moniker. Our best guess: There’s a range of versatile, buff, and skin flattering hues that will make your contour look born-this-way not full-face-of-makeup (not that there’s anything wrong with that!) It’s also not the first time Urban Decay has created a Naked product that wasn’t a shadow: There’s also Naked foundation and concealer.
I’m going to say UB (urban decay) has been killing lately and giving it other companies one way or another, with they launch of their line of makeup removers and skin products to this which is not available in Canada at the time I’m posting this. SO let’s do this killa – what we have from UB is a total package for the face it’s something that I’ve wanted to own for quite sometime in some ways it performs like I just had the best sex ever and some ways it’s limp – you say tomato I say potato. It’s your creams and your powders all in one place, Naked Skin Shapeshifter is more than a contour kit – this three-in-one complexion palette provides everything you need to contour, color-correct and highlight. One side contains powders (three (3) for contouring and one (1) pearl shade for highlighting), and the other holds creams (two (2) for contouring, two (2) four color-correcting and one pearl shade for highlighting). Available in two color ways that span the complexion spectrum, Light Medium Shift for light to medium skin tones and Medium Dark Shift for medium to dark skin tones—Naked Skin Shapeshifter has everybody covered. If you fall somewhere in the middle, mix the shades in either palette to create your own custom tones. You can even layer the powder and cream formulas to achieve a longer-wearing, more intense effect.
Naked Skin Shapeshifter is contouring the Naked way. Every shade is blendable, buildable and forgiving—so your skin still looks like skin. We curated a range of shades and textures for the flexibility to create any look. The medium and dark contour shades allow you to achieve any level of contouring, from subtle shaping to more intense, sculpted effects. The color correctors neutralize dark areas under the eyes for a wide-awake look. The light contour shades and highlighters enable you to bring light to the high points of the face—for glowing, youthful-looking Naked skin. Our powders are finely milled for an ultra-silky feel and a clean finish. The creams blend into the skin for a seamless finish—giving you the best of both worlds.
Naked Skin Shapeshifter comes in a super-sleek, travel-ready case with a dimensional, “contoured” effect. Slim enough to take with you, this palette is still packed with nine shades. A double-sided mirror separates the powders from the creams and keeps them clean and mess-free.
If you live in the USA I’d go out and buy this and as soon as it’s available in Canada I’ll have a link up to buy and a little surpise!
One of the best parts about the Shapeshifter Palette is its compact design. You can easily use the palette on shoots without bringing a ton of products along with her. In addition to the palette itself, though, there is also a Shapeshifter brush meant to be used directly with the new product. The fans thought the double-sided brush was going to come in the box with the product but come on do you think UB WOULD PASS UP MAKING MORE MONEY!? I don’t think so it’s sold separate.
Mastering contouring techniques takes practice, and using the right tools makes all the difference. No matter what look you’re going for, the UD Pro Contour Shapeshifter Brush has you covered. The domed brush makes it easy to lay down a lot of product and blend out the edges. Think of it as a mini version our UD Pro Optical Blurring Brush. Stipple on color to get the payoff you desire, then buff the edges to diffuse. The fan brush lays down just the right amount of highlighter for that flawless, glowy, “I woke up like this” look.
