Urban Decay Streak Naked Flushed Palette is one of three new shades of permanent Urban Decay Naked Flush Palettes that Urban Decay released for Summer 2014.
Like the original Naked Flushed Palette, Streak features a bronzer, blush, and highlighter shade.
Let’s take a look!
Some folks didn’t love the original Urban Decay Naked Flushed Palette but I actually did! It’s a rarity for me to like anything with a highlighter and bronzer because I make more use of blush than bronzer and highlighter but I do like this style of palette a lot because it brings together a nice assortment of facial powders in one slim, easy to travel with, easy to store compact!

Urban Decay Streak Naked Flushed Palette is a nice assortment for those with fair to medium fair skin as the bronzer can double up as a contouring powder of sorts. I find the texture varies in these palettes as the highlighter is typically soft and velvety where as the bronzer and blush is dense, slightly dry, but still silky and easy to blend onto cheeks. The texture of the bronzer and blush isn’t exactly finely milled but as I still find it a smooth, blendable experience none the less with fairly natural pigment that isn’t overwhelming which is surprising as Urban Decay does like its pigment!
I think the bronzer portion is a softer tan which is so doable for me. The texture is very soft and quite smooth with a certain silkiness although it does have a dense layer at first but that brushes away with use. The color is very doable as it adds warmth but not orange to skin. It also adds richness to blush should you wish to use it over your face blush!
The highlighter portion of the compact is a golden peach. It’s a bit frosty but can be blended into a soft sheen on cheeks and face. It does kinda catch on drier areas of my face so spend some extra time blending it out. You can never over blend right? Blending out will soften the effects and you’ll have a smoother finish.
The blush is the most dense here and has a matte finish. I thought it was dry but it blends out quite well on my skin and looks smooth and even never patchy for such a drier blush!
Overall, Urban Decay Streak Naked Flushed Palette is a “safe” play for paler or fairer skin types that want a workable selection of not too pigmented bronzer, blush, and highlighter. Don’t be discouraged by “not to pigmented” because these powders do have excellent color pay off but they just look more natural and less harsh than some bronzers, blushes, and highlighters. For folks like me, that dislike bronzer, this is a perfect way to add warmth, color, and a hint of sparkle to your cheeks and face!
