URBAN DECAY STREAK Naked Flushed (Comparison | Streak, Native, Naked)


Urban Decay released two more Naked Flushed palettes into their Naked line for Summer 2014. The new palettes feature a bronzer, highlighter and blush in peachy, coral shades and bronzy, golden shades.

The Naked Streak Flushed (0.49 oz.) retails for $30 USD ($35 CAD) and is "a bronzer, highlighter and blush in a sleek, travel-ready compact."
Bronzer is described as a pale bronze matte.
Highlight is described as a peachy shimmer.
Blush is described as a bright coral.
"Get Naked (and FLUSHED). This peachy Naked trio features a super silky bronzer, highlighter and blush. Use them individually or blend them all together. Repeat. Bask in the radiant afterglow."
The packaging is simple and compact. It features a handy mirror and the individual products are generously sized, although I wish they were equal rather than being 45% bronzer. The packing is exactly the same as the original Flushed, however this compact is slightly more rosegold toned than gold. With that said, I was hoping they'd continue the theme and have Streak be slightly more peach than Native, but no luck. All 3 additions to original Naked palette have the same compact. *I should note, the stickers located on the back are different shades though!

The bronzer is a medium, peach brown with fine gold shimmer. The finish isn't really matte as described, it does have a noticeable shimmer while on the skin. The texture was soft, powdery and finely-milled. The product applied semi-sheer and was blendable. The bronzer lasted 7+ hours before showing noticeable fading.

The highlighter is pale, gold peach with a high frosted sheen. The finish is more metallic than shimmer. It left behind a high metallic, frosted sheen which can emphasize the look of pores and imperfections. The color payoff was true-to-pan. The texture was very soft, smooth, and applied evenly. When I first picked up the product, it almost felt chunky, but wasn't noticeable on the skin. The highlight lasted +8 hours before fading.

The blush is a coral with warm undertones and a matte finish. The texture is soft, smooth but is very powdery. I noticed a lot of loose product when I ran my brush/finger over the pan. The blush applies semi-sheer and almost patchy on bare skin. I recommend applying over top of a foundation so it has something to grab to, but with that said, it does become more difficult to evenly blend out. The blush lasted +5 hours before showing signs of wear.
 - Streak vs. Naked 
The Streak bronzer applied more sheer than the original Naked, it was also more yellow toned than orange. The texture of Streak was finely-milled, soft and powdery compared to Naked which was stiff and firm. I found Streak to have a lot of wasted product. When picking up product with a brush/finger, the leftover loose powder would sit on top of the pan.
The Streak highlighter is lighter, more of a pale champagne while the original Naked is darker. Streak appeared more frosted/metallic on the skin, emphasizing pores and imperfections, I felt Naked didn't have this issue. Both were soft, smooth and blendable. The highlighters are the only consistent product in all 3 palettes I've tried.
The  Streak blush applied a lot more sheer and was lighter, more peach than the original Naked, which is darker, more rose. The texture looked similar while on the skin but Streak was very loose and powdery in the pan, while the original Naked was firm. Like the bronzer, I felt the blush had a lot of wasted product due to loose powder sitting on top of the pan.
 - Streak vs. Native
The Streak bronzer is more peach toned and slightly sheer compared to Native. The fine shimmer was also more noticeable in StreakThe textures were similar, both were finely-milled, soft and powdery. I found both to have equally wasted product due to loose powder left on the pan when picking the product up, whether it be with a brush, finger, etc.
The Streak highlighter is darker, more peach toned with golden shimmer, while Native is lighter, softer and more white based with champagne shimmer compared. Both highlighters had a high-frosted, metallic finish and emphasized the look of pores and imperfections. The texture is soft, smooth and blendable. As I said, the highlighters are the only consistent product in the palettes I've tried.
The Streak blush is darker, more coral with a very slight, fine golden-peach shimmer, while Native is lighter, pinker, very cool-toned with a matte finish. I found both blushes were incredibly powdery and sat on the skin, almost like chalk. I would recommend applying both these blushes over a foundation instead of bare skin.

Overall, these palettes still aren't golden star worthy. The texture of the bronzer and highlighter are an improvement from the Native palette, but I still wouldn't say it's a huge improvement from the original Naked palette. The blush is still powdery and the highlight could be a tad less frosted. They're nice, travel-friendly palettes -- we just need the quality to improve and be more consistant!
