Urban Decay has announced they are discontinuing their iconic Naked Palette. This is not a drill.

To pay tribute to the loss of this fan favourite, the brand invited makeup influencers Kandee Johnson, Christen Dominique, Chrisspy, Katy DeGroot, Shayla Mitchell and brand ambassador Nicole Richie to pay their respects. They also released a statement: “Today, the beauty world mourns Urban Decay’s beloved Naked Palette, the product that revolutionized neural eyeshadows.”

One user says: “I’m confused as to why this was necessary.” While another states: “makeup is unisex but ok.” However, others have praised the brand, saying they hope it paves the way for others to follow in their footsteps and makes inroads to normalising men wearing makeup.

Fans have taken to Twitter and Instagram to share their excitement about the inclusive range, with many expressing FOMO at the news that the line quickly ran out of stock on the website. Now newly restocked, you’d better hurry to get a piece of the yellow pie.
