This is the most expensive eyeshadow palette I've ever bought, but I think it's worthwhile because you can use ALL the colors for everyday looks! I like how the palette is laid out so that every nook and cranny of the palette is utilized. I really hate it when you buy a palette and the shadows are placed in round pans that have spaces in between them. I wish the palette came in a steel or plastic case instead of a cardboard box. But maybe the price would go up if it was laid that way. You know when you are at a store and you always seem to find yourself drawn to neutral shades because you have a certain look you want to go for? And when you get home you realize that you have a lot of neutral palettes? This is the end of it all neutral palette. Every single neutral color is laid out in front of you and it's super easy to use! I just wish they'd return the eyeliner duo instead of the brush! The price has gone up a few dollars since it was released in 2010 and the eyeliner duo was replaced by a brush- not a sweet deal in my opinion. Still... I love all the colors! I can't believe I got the last one off the shelf! I'm glad I exchanged the urban ammo palette for this... There is one color that is missing in my opinion... a true matte black like perversion! The black here is nice, but there are tiny glitters in it. They should have included perversion instead of sidecar, which is, in my opinion, a beautifully pigmented glitter bomb brown! The glitter falls all over your cheeks! So 11 out of 12 shadows are usable! Still a sweet deal!
I absolutely love this palette! I think I can actually say it's my all time favorite eyeshadow palette... It took me forever to get it, everytime I would check Sephora's website(almost every day) it would be out of stock. So when I finally saw that it was in stock a few weeks ago my hands couldn't move fast enough for me to purchase it because I was afraid by the time I did it would be sold out again, lol... So anyways I've had this for a couple weeks and have been wearing it every day since, I love neutrals, especially shimmery ones.. so this pallette is perfect for me. I have tried urban decay shadows before this and they are really good quality all except for shades like snatch that have so much chunky glitter in them that gets all over your face. That is such a pet peve of mine cuz I do my foundation before my eye makeup and it just ruins everything. The naked palette doesn't really have any shades in it that have too bad of fall out, sidecar does a little bit so use a dense eyeshadow brush(like the one it comes with) and maybe a squirt of fix plus if you dont want fall out. Bottom line, This lives up to the hype and $48 dollars fo 12 shadows, a mini primer potion and a nice eyeshadow brush is actually pretty reasonable. GET IT
Oh, be still my beating heart! This palette is everything I could ever ask for. I'm not usually a big eyeshadow person but once I got this I started wearing it everywhere, everyday. The range of colors is fantastic. In my mind there was only so much neutral you could do before it starts getting boring, but none of the shadows left me underwhelmed. They all work really well together, too. The one thing I have a complaint about is the packaging - the velvet exterior attracts lint like none other. I'll definitely be buying this again!
I had never used Urban Decay products before ordering the Naked Palette off Ebay (for an insane amount when they were hard to get months ago). Still I don't regret spending tons of money because I wear this palette SO much. You have every neutral shade ranging from light highlight colours through bronzes, dark shimmery browns to black and grey. I can't believe other companies have not copied this marvelous idea! The finishes of the shadows differ from matte, frost to shimmers, so you have the option of doing a matte day-time eye, or amping up the shimmer for night. They blend seamlessly and are quite smooth, with little to no fallout. Lasting capabilities are comparable to MAC, with only sweating dancing making them budge.
I have also used Urban Decays Primer Potion, but I prefer MAC's Paint Pots as the pots are drier than UD as I have super oily lids.
I would recommend ANYONE to get this, especially if you can't afford getting ten shadows from MAC - this is just as good.
The colours are very pretty.. Even though some are a little similar when on the lids. They are so soft and smooth, making blending easy. These are even more pigmented and finely milled than the MAC eyeshadows that I have..
The brush that came with it is extremely soft.. and it doesn't scratch my lids when I put the shadow on, unlike my other brush which seems to be a bit prickly. I love this naked palette, and am happy that I spent the $80 on it to get it shipped here in Australia.
I am in love with this Naked Palette so much because it very easy to use in any time and any where no matter early morning or going out at night . you can easy to mix and create a very natural. I will definitely will purchase this Naked Palette again after I am finish with my first palette !!! x)
Oh my gosh! This is probably one of THE BEST makeup purchases I have ever bought! I am a total high-end makeup girl and when everyone was raving about this, I had to have it!
Pros: Neutral colors that turn from day to night, but most are naked colors, The eyeliner duo-side pencil (Zero and Whiskey) are the best, esp. Whiskey
Cons: Price (even though I personally don't mind it), the availability of the item (it's never in stock)
Overall, every makeup junkie should have this Palette. I use it EVERY DAY! The Naked Palette is amazing, DO NOT hesitate to buy this! :)
I have never seen this in stock at my local sephora. Thank goodness for MUA! I received this palette from a swap and I absolutely cannot get enough of it. I was fortunate enough to get the palette with the 2 liners but I haven't used them yet and am saving them for 'special occasions' lol. Im a neutral girl and if you are too, this is def a must have. You can create hundreds of different looks. These are full eyeshadows and for the price you are def getting your money's worth. The eyeshadows are very pigmented and a little goes a long way. Again, if you are a big fan of neutrals, this is a must have. I certainly won't be buying anymore eyeshadows in a while !
Beautiful neutral colours. I never need anything else on a day-to-day basis. The pigmentation is great and it lasts long (if base is used). My favourite has to be the colour 'sin'. It's gorgeous!
The Naked Palette is awesome! I just started working at ULTA about a month ago as a prestige makeup artist. This product is super popular that we keep it in the register. As a makeup artist at Ulta I had to try this out for myself. So I bought one and it came with a little cute travel size potion eye primer (original) and a eye shadow brush. My co-worker that bought it a while back said her's came with the 24/7 eyeliner. As for me it would've been more convenient for me to have the eye liner instead since I use different brushes to apply my eyeshadows. One regular eyeshadow brush won't do the work for me at least. However, for some it might be convenient to have the brush. Anyways, enough about the brush. The eyeshadows are well pigmented and have the best neutral/smokey/day/night look to it. I've done so many different looks with this palette that I love using it as a makeover for my clients. I love how I can take this anywhere with me and do pretty much any look I want in neutral colors. The only dislike factor about the naked palette is that it does not have much matte colors. However, I will still give this a five since I love it so much! :)
