I got this palette on a whim after getting glammed up at my local UB counter and I couldn't be happier with it.

The palette itself is compact and sturdy and will fit nicely in any small bag or clutch ; I have already dropped it a couple of times and it survived! Also, it's almost hard to open so you can be sure it won't open and spill in your bag if you carry it around.

The textures are quite soft and powdery but highly pigmented ; you need to be light handed as you build up the colours on your face.

The bronzer is a rather cool shade which works fantastically on my ivory skin (at last a bronzer that doesn't make me look orange!) ; brilliant for contouring and achieving a soft day time finish.

Like previous posters said, the blusher is a coral shade which I love, it's a pink coral rather than an orange coral and it's just perfect, it creates a healthy pop of colour on your cheeks whilst looking completely natural. Just dip your brush in it and tap it before applying as a little goes a loooong way.

The highlighter is great as long as you remain light-handed too, brilliant for a glowing look. It helps your skin look radiant without making it shiny.

The powders stay on my (normal to dry) skin all day, I am not sure what went wrong for the other posters. I use primer, powder and foundation and apply Naked Flushed on top of it all and it still stays put all day.

Overall I have been using this for a few weeks now and I wouldn't go back, it's a brilliant complement to the UB Naked Basics palette for your everyday looks, it costs more than your usual blusher/bronzer set but it's a fantastic investment as it looks like it will last me for ages.

If you are looking to achieve a healthy, peachy look then look no further.
I usually never leave reviews anywhere but I just had to because the Naked Flushed palette is so useful.

What really sold me on this palette was the gorgeous highlight color. I swatched all shades in Sephora and knew they were going to be powdery, but I felt I could deal with it. After using this a few times I broke out in the hollows of my cheek bones, right where I applied the bronzer.

The beloved highlight shade looked very scaly on the skin, not as beautiful as when it is merely swatched on the skin.

The blush is a nice flush of coral, but it is very powdery and doesn't last long on my skin.

This is being returned.

There are several things that I love about this, and a few that I really don't. The concept of having a bronzer, highlighter and blush in one palette is fantastic. It's a great concept and makes for a good travel palette.

The colors work well together. The blush is a lovely coral-pink. My skin is NW15, and this is a great brightening color. The bronzer isn't too dark or orange either. There's some shimmer, but not too much. The colors get a big thumbs-up from me.

The texture and lasting power are what keep this from being HG material though. None of the colors are highly pigmented, and they can be kinda chalky. They look fresh for about 2 hours before fading. My skin is on the oily side, though, so that might be why they don't have a lot of lasting power

Overall, I love the concept, but there are a few things that I'd love for UD to tweak. For the price ($29), it's not a bag deal for the amount of product that you get.
