I have the brand new Urban Decay Naked Skin Shapeshifter palette here and I have to say, I’m a fan. It’s beautifully packaged and offers up a range of textures and tones for shaping and sculpting the face. Here’s everything you need to know along with photos and swatches. Enjoy!

I am instantly excited by the palette because I’m a big advocate of using cream products and then setting them with their powder counterparts. I mean, nothing pops like a cream highlighter set with a powder one. I absolutely love the intensity that this technique delivers.

You can layer the powders over the cream to set and intensify, or use each one alone depending on the kind of finish you are going for. Sometimes I love the juicy finish that a cream on its own delivers and sometimes I like to amp it up with a powder on top. If I’m in a rush, I’ll just go for powders.

This is a combination of creams and powders together. I used the two contour powders on my lids so didn’t need any eyeshadow.

The packaging is gorgeously sturdy and has a lovely magnetic close. It’s the perfect travel companion and the colour correctors make excellent eye primers too. Great!
