Urban Decay’s Smoked Eyeshadow palette ($49 at Ulta, Sephora, UrbanDecay.com) features ten eyeshadows (all from the permanent range), a full-fize Perversion pencil eyeliner, a small tube of Primer Potion and a rather thick and detailed “get the look” type bookley. This palette is designed to be the perfect set for doing a smoky eye, so most of the colors lean dark, especially compared to the Naked palettes.
