Welcome to Unfiltered, where we give our honest, no-B.S. reviews of the most buzzed-about beauty products, brands, and services on the market right now.
In recent months, it has been all about cherries. From tattoos to nail art, people can't seem to get enough of the summer-favorite treat. So, it was foreseeable that the trend would eventually influence our favorite makeup brands. Enter, Urban Decay. Following the heartbreaking announcement that the brand would be discontinuing the beloved OG Naked eyeshadow palette, UD redeemed itself by launching an entirely new palette called Naked Cherry — and it immediately sold out.
But Naked Cherry is back just in time for the holidays with a few friends. The lineup is called Merry Cherry Bright, and it's a curated selection of products available right in time for the gift-giving season. Aside from the restocked palette, there are new products, including a blush-highlighter palette, three lipsticks, two lip liners, two eyeliners, and a cherry-scented version of the cult-favorite All Nighter setting spray. Can't decide which one to grab for a gift (or yourself)? There's also a Naked Cherry vault with most of the products wrapped in one $100 set.
Knowing Urban Decay is on the wish list of most beauty lovers this season, we decided to put these cherry products to the test with a few R29 staffers to see if it's really worth it. Read their unfiltered opinions, ahead.
