I LOVE THIS!! i bought it because of the great reviews i read everywhere.. and I'm so glad I did. I had to check Sephora online frequently cuz they were always sold out.. thankfully I got lucky and bought one right away! They only had it available for one night.. sold out the next day.
Highly pigmented and good color pay off. Every girl who sees my palette asks me where I got it!
If you see it available anywhere, BUY IT!!
Updating my review. Sorry I'm taking back two lippies. This palette is a great, general, go-to palette for the average girl. I would recommend this to anyone who is just starting out with eye shadows no matter who they are. Unfortunately I think the colors in this palette gear more towards those warm colored gals who look awesome in golds, coppers, and reddish browns (more than half the palette). Unfortunately those of us with cool tones need to be more careful what we choose. This isn't so bad, but in addition to that, my skin is very light. I am an NW15, so "Virgin" blends right into my skin not working as any sort of highlight. With this highlighting issue, I can't make the cool effects others can. It seems most of the eyeshadows then, are either too dark or too warm. Urban Decay is awesome to make such a high quality palette that works for most women, but the key term is "MOST"... us NW15's are left out.
I have medium auburn hair and blue eyes. I never wore eyeshadow until I bought this palette. I love it and use it almost everyday. The colors are so beautiful and easy to apply. You can't really go wrong with any color combination in it. I go out a lot so can make my look more dramatic or wear it to work (i just have to use a lighter hand). I got the palette with the eyeshadow brush which I use a lot. I already have some of the UD liners so I didn't really need anymore black or brown liners. I can always use more good brushes though. I recommend this to everyone cause the colors will work on any skin tone/eye color and look fantastic.
Yes, it does have a lot of glitter fallout, but that doesn't bother me much like it does other users. I don't have much color/pigment fallout, just glitter. Like someone else recommended, it would be great if UD made this same pallet minus the glitter for more of a daytime look.
Well where can i start...I mean i use this palette everyday! I dont usually wear eyeshadows to school but when ever i do i always find myself reaching for this palette! it has amazing color selections so many looks you can do with this palette, smokey,neutral, dramatic and etc. I love this palette so much and use it everyday (creep) thats the main color i use its a black with little glitters which is beautiful! i use it as liner sometimes alone or sometimes with all that glitters or (sidecar) its a taupy glittery color and thats one of my favorite! so many people say its thier least favorite but to me i love it! it gives me such a nice glow on my eyes! My palette is so messy now since i use it everyday and the letters in the front are rubbing off which is something i hate i wish they couldve changed that lol which is not a big thing! i got the one with the liners and almost out of zero but still have the brown which is ok i dont really use or wear brown eyeliners so i dont really care for it much so maybe if i ever run out of these colors ill buy the new one with the brush :)
I LOVE THIS!!! This is the one item that I reach out to every single day that is the same, day in day out. I love that I can mix and match anything and it still looks gorgeous. The colours are pigmented, stay on all day even without primer! To make my smokey eye pop, all I have to do is too layer the shadow above the liner and ta dah! awesome smokey eye that lasts all. night. long.
However, I've never tried any other palettes apart from nyx (which bites) but I've been recommending this palette to every single girl I know who loves makeup. Will buy it for as long as I wear eye makeup.
I particularly love virgin as a highlight and naked and bucks for matte everyday wear. These shadows I will contemplate buying on its own. However, the value that the whole palette gives is just too awesome as I don't see the shades running out anytime soon.
Love urban decay!
everything I look for in a palette is here---i can use it for the office, for daytime makeup or for dramatic smoky looks. i use all shades everyday except for sidecar which has some fallout issues for me---however a primer can always fix that. the liner and primer potion are big bonuses. you just can't go wrong with this palette.
Very very pigmented and creamy shadows..almost too creamy sometimes i find. I used Gunmetal and Creep for a smokey eye and it was over urban decay primer potion and it crease like crazy after just 5 minutes ..i think the shades are too creamy sometimes and can mush. The color selection is great though but i wish i got the one with the eyeliner instead of the brush.
You can use every single color in this palette, and im not kidding either. I have pale freckly skin and some eyeshadows dont always look good. Ive used every color in this set and each is very pigmented and you can mix the colors to make an even better look. Even though i would buy this product again i dont think that i will have to because it doesnt look like im going to be running out of any one color soon. Honestly, ive used each color equaly and deffently will continue to do so. THUMBS UP!
I love this palete, but I have two issues; why cant they keep up with the demand for this product? and I would like to see them make a second Naked palate that is totally matte.
I love love LOVE this palette! I use this every day. My best friend wears a lot of Urban decay and I was never a fan of her 'book of shadows' palettes due to the colors (I have pale skin and orange hair so bright blues/pinks/purples make me look like a clown!). I came across this at an Ulta and it was the last one. I bought it, and boy am I glad I did! Neutral earthy tones look great on me, and I can pull off every shade in this palette! Mine came with a duo ended brown and black eyeliner as well. (The eyeliner stays on ALL DAY...in fact..a little too well. It's hard to get off even with make up remover). Bottom line, these shades are great! I don't know what I would do without it!!!
