Maybelline and Rimel are my two favorite drug store brands for make-up. This palette is a great dupe for Urban Decay's first Naked palette. I don't think the shadows are as pigmented as Urban Decay, but with a good eye shadow primer I see no reason why they wouldn't last just as long. Great palette for the price. And I really like "the smokes" palette for a more vampy and smokey eye.

I also think the Fresh Face palette they have is a lot like my Naked 3 palette! Great color selection, cute compact, and I love the price!

I am a total beginner at eyeshadow and this is my first palette but I am totally satisfied with this product. It gives me the looks I want and has all the colours I want. The colour pigmentation isn't that great and I have to put on a lot of layers but other than that its great!

I have only a few words to say about this product because I have only worn it for one day. i immediately liked it better than the Urban Decay Naked 2 that i have and rarely wear. I used 3 or 4 colors over the Hard Candy face primer. the colors went on really smoothly and look great. Somehow the Urban Decay is never right on me. it is too intense, too gritty, too everything. i also had the Naked 1 and didn't like it at all. The Maybelline shadows have worn well all day. no creasing. normally i find Maybelline shadows to be more "miss: than "hit", but this palette is great.

I know one day I needed some basic shades for some everyday looks. I walked into Ulta specifically for this one day because I saw it in stores all the time and it was the first thing that came to mind that I thought would work. When I got home, I was excited a bit, because it has a few matte shades and a few shimmers. It has a little guide on the back that shows you how to pair the shades up, either two shades, three, or using all four in it's little section. Its cute and user friendly. it's good for basics but I'm truthfully not very thrilled by it. The colors are not very pigmented, they fade quickly, and are a bit hard to apply because they are patchy for me. I use a primer and I've tried using a wet brush and its still just a bit of a dud for me. I mean, Its great for what I bought it for. Basics. That's it. But I'm not thrilled and I wont buy again. I'll probably try to pass it on one day to someone and maybe they will have some more luck with it.

I feel a mix of I like this palette but at the same time I don't. It's great for daytime use but I did not find a variety of good colors in this. There are two shades that look almost the same and others that just look muddy on my eyes. Yet I do like the bronzey shades and the few matte ones. I just feel that this palette is boring. Some colors are more pigmented than others. It's an ok, just good palette but not great.

This palette has very mixed reviews for me. Part of me totally loves this palette but I just don't reach for it as much as I thought I would. I don't regret purchasing this because it's great size for travel and has a good balance of mattes and shimmers but the colors just aren't THAT pigmented and vibrant. They are a little chalky for my liking but I do enjoy this every so often. You get what you get for 11 dollars. Still love my Naked palettes and Too Faced Chocolate bars better.

this product is okay! it's not the best if you like really creamy, easy blend able eyeshadow (e.g urban decay) but it's still a good deal, wouldn't re purchase though

This palette was just not up to standards. I will be honest though and say I don't normally buy DS and although I've heard and am sure there are similar quality, even better products than HE, this is not one of them.

I saw this on sale for a fab $12.50 and the colours just looked so gorg I couldn't resist. Wasn't able to swatch in store though and that was biggest mistake because upon trying it out at home there is like NO pigmentation!!!

I'm actually really curious how people think this a good palette?? But I will tell you this is just not up to my standards period. I've tried it over foundation/concealer but not real eye primer, but tbh you really shouldn't have to use an eye primer to have a shade simply show up. The shadows need so much layering and building up and even then it isn't great.

Big disappointment because due to the lack of pigments and barely being able to see the shades they all kinda look the same anyways which makes having all 12 shades pointless when you could do similar looks with just a few eyeshadows. I don't know what this is regular price but I'm guessing it's not worth it for a product that just kinda sucks.

I was hoping this palette would be a dupe for the high-end palettes out there, but my expectations were slightly off the charts. However, I still consider that I got my money's worth as it is still a decent palette.

I'm so glad there's finally a drugstore palette that's similar to Urban Decay's Naked palettes! I had my doubts on this product when I first purchased it since the reviews of this product were either really good or "worst product of the year", however, after trying out myself, I TOTALLY LOVE THIS PALETTE. This palette comes with 12 different shades and two sponge applicators. I love this palette since it's cheap, comparing to similar high end palettes, and it contains both matte and shimmer colors, so it's great for both neutral and smokey looks. My only complain for this would be that the pigmentation of two or three colors aren't that great, so it'll take some time to build up the color. To me, this is a great drugstore swap for Urban Decay's Naked palette and Too Faced's Chocolate Bar palette. Overall, I think this is a great product and I would definitely purchase it again.
