While I love this palette, while waiting for this I used the avon 8-in-1 palette and honestly it is of the same quality. So there are definitely cheaper options out there.
One of the best purchases ever! I was lucky to purchase it when it came with the eyeliners. Though the brush seem to be of great quality, the liners are so awesome and whiskey isn't sold regularly. The shadows are of great quality even though there could be some fallouts if it isn't applied with the right techniques. The colors are really pigmented and sooo smooth, that alone makes it worth the purchase. The packaging is alright, not my favorite type but it has it purpose and it has a lot of shadow packed in there.
This product is HIGHLY overrated. You can make these looks with other brands and other eyeshadows. It has nice packaging so you get all your colors in one spot - but let's expand our knowledge base a little and get creative shall we? The glitterbombs as previously mentioned in this comment below me - yeah, I don't like those either. Overall it's versatile, and if I put it on light it's great for work and if I put it on dark its great for going out. No big deal, great palette, too much hype.
Edit: for those voting unhelpful on my review: really? Is it really unhelpful to you or do you just disagree? If you like the product, great, I'm glad if works for you. But someone having a different opinion than you about a product and expressing it isn't unhelpful lol. Okay just wanted to get that out there.
I do not like being in the minority as far as not liking this product goes. I really, really wanted to like this product. I was on a waiting list at Sephora for 6 months to get it. When it came in, I went right in and gladly shelled out the 50something bucks. (I have the newer, slightly more expensive version, which comes with a brush instead of the eyeliner). The brush ended up being the one thing in it that made me not completely regret purchasing it. I like UDPP too, but did not need another one. Anyway, the palette itself: highly overrated. Here's why: it's a mess. Every "look" I've tried with this ends up looking the same because all the colors blend together. Also, as usual, there are a few eyeshadows in here, in typical Urban Decay fashion, that are straight-up glitterbombs. There are only two matte shades, and they are nothing special or unique. That's the thing about this palette as a whole: NONE of the colors are special or unique. If you have a good amount of eyeshadow, and you like neutrals, you already have these colors. You already have BETTER versions of these colors. I have a Sonia Kashuk duo from Target that has a better combo of neutral shades, with better pigmentation. Usually I find UD's eyeshadows to be smooth and well pigmented... these I just find have too much fall-out and are, as a whole, too glittery. The one cool thing (besides the brush and UDPP) is the packaging. It definitely looks nice. If you want your eyes to be a blurry brownish glittery mess... here you go. I'm sorry I couldn't like this, I feel bad returning it (as I usually do when I am this dissatisfied with a product) as it was so hard to obtain. So I will probably have to get rid of it some other way. Sigh.
I got the last one off the shelf at my local Sephora today. I have been waiting quite awhile to get it and when I saw it was almost out of reach again, I decided to buy it.
On the way home, I opened it and was disappointed at what I saw. Why is that? Because I recently purchased two customized Inglot Freedom System palettes online and they put all other palettes I have (and I have a lot) to absolute shame in pigmentation, price and product amount.
My 10-color Inglot palette was $50.00 and I got to choose the shades and formulas. Each shadow was $4.50 and the awesome magnetic palette was discounted to $5.00. Shipping was a bit costly at $9.00, but well worth it for the quality of the products. I bought another 5-color palette after I received the first one. It stacks magnetically on top of the other 10-well palette for easy storage.
I waited three months on a waiting list at Ulta to get this eye shadow palette and it was worth the wait! Both Sephora an Ulta could not keep this in stock. The colors are super pigmented but the shades are so neutral that you can almost bare - or build it into some fabulous blends. I'm gonna get another one!
I am so insanely happy with this palette! I am a teenager so i dont have drawers and drawers of makeup. I dont even own that many eyeshadow's with the exception of a few mac ones, a couple of drugstore shadows and the urban decay show pony palette. I have basically been stalking this palette since October and I finally got it a few weeks ago and i must say I LOVE IT! Its all ive been using and i adore it, i can do a natural eye look or kick it up a notch and go darker. Anything u need or want in a natural eyeshadow palette you will find in this one. Another thing is the price, although it looks expensive its not, the actual eyeshadows in this palette are full size and the retail value of it is $204 and we are getting it for $48! One last thing, one mac quad with just 4 mac full sized eyeshadows is around $50 as well which is crazy because the naked palette gives you 8 more for your money!! Bottom line it this palette is amazing any way you choose to look at it.
A really great palette. I love all the colors and the quality of the shadows are amazing. Every combination that I try is truly fabulous. One just has to have a light hand during application because of the fallouts and the pigmentation (which is absolutely great btw). I remember when this make up first came out I think spring/summer of 2010. I was so obsessed at getting this palette that we even have to go to 4 different states(Penn,MD,NY and NJ) and raided the Ulta and Sephora there back in August 2010 just to look for this palette, the search nearly drove me crazy. I was so disappointed going home to Toronto without this sought-after palette. But low and behold, around late Nov. /Early Dec., a local Sephora called me to say that they have limited quantity in their store and I was next on the wait list. I have to ask my poor husband to come get it for me since I was at work and won't be off until after the store closes for the day. But I got the palette. The dual-ended eyeliner was indeed a bonus, but I wasn't too impress with them , they are just okay. The mini primer potion is also a good thing to have so i can take it with me when I travel but since I have dry skin, I am more of a TFSI kind of gal. The packaging is cute but can get dirty easily and because of the length of the palette, I don't think that it is that Ideal for travelling. But if you have to go somewhere where you have do look really good and made-up and that you can only bring one make-up palette then this would be it. Highly recommended. Though the new ones now come with a brush instead of liners.
I love the Naked Palette!!!!!!! I bought this from my local Sephora in November 2010 for $44. Its such a great value all of the colors are wearable from day to night and creating looks is very easy!!The eyesahdows are super blendable and the texture is very smooth.The 2 eyelines are great very pigmented and very smooth and creamy. The Urban Decay Naked Palette is Love :)
First I should say I am a bit biased because I do not wear eye shadow on a regular basis, I tend to wear kajal smudged, blush, powder and foundation and lip stick and lip liner, so eye shadow for me is a novelty, but I do like this product, all bit it a bit over hyped. I would not purchase again because I can't ever imagine wearing enough eye shadow to go through it and the colors are more like a basic wardrobe for me not anything totally unique. I brought it to start wearing eye shadows and going for a more sophisticated makeup look with a nude lip color and polished face this does the job. The shadows are a bit on the shimmery side for me but that's alright I am trying to wear more color on my tan skin and not just nude lipstick and blush all the time. So if you are looking to build your eyeshadow collection this is a good place to start otherwise there are better colors out there.
