Oh. My. God. I think I just died.
This is going to be YET another stellar review of the Naked palette so if you're looking for something to curb your longings then look away, friend, look away.
Let's get the negative over with first.
The palette itself is in a brown velvet case with gold lettering. The only thing with the brown velvet is that it collects dust a lot and if it gets wet, it takes positively ages to dry. I do my makeup in the bathroom (it's the biggest mirror I have and the Naked mirror doesn't cut it) and it often gets wet or dusty or both, which is frankly HELL. If UD made Naked the same way they made the BLACK palette, that would be so much better.
The shadows inside are typical UD formula -- they're silky soft and "obedient," as I like to call them -- easy to blend when required, staying put when required. On my dark skin, the light mattes look slightly chalky, but apart from those two or three I can manage to make everything work and so can my reasonably lighter-skinned friends.
What I love about this palette is that you can be as intricate as you want with your looks -- hell, put Gunmetal in the crease if you want! but you'll still look effortlessly made-up, minimalistically classy even if you're just using one shade or five.
GET. THIS. PALETTE. It's amazing, a great value and definitely an awesome addition to anyone's kit.
I finally got this palette after being on the waiting list for months. I was afraid that it wouldn't be worth the hype, but it really is. Since I received it, I haven't used any other eye shadows. The colors are fantastic- I can get whatever look I want for day or evening.
If you're wondering if this palette is as good as it's hyped to be, the answer is a resounding YES!
I finally got my hands on this palette!!! Months after I was on the waiting list at Sephora, I finally got it. All I can say is, I am so happy I finally have it! The shadows are very pigmented and goes on smoothly. The only shade I probably am not partial to is sidecar, which tends to have a ton of glittery fallout. Overall, i love this palette although I am a bit sad that they now come with the shadow brush instead of the pencils. Still, the shadows are worth the price and for those who love the neutral look, this is one palette you shouldn't pass up.
Awesome Neutral Pallette to travel with.
Colors are gorgeous! You can create so many looks!
Get a lot for what you paid for. It couldn't get any better than that.
Love UD shadows...I have two of their palettes and its well worth it...I purposely waited for the naked palette with the eyeshadow brush instead of the dou eye pencils(have too many of them).
I just found this product while it was in stock for a split sec at Sephora.com. the only reason i waited, was because it wasn't in stock! great great great color pay off. awesome selection of neutrals, with a variety of shimmer, matte, satiny colors. the only thing i don't love is the eyeshadow brush it came with... feels more like a concealer brush to me... but i already have eyeshadow brushes that I love. would def. repurchase.!
I love this !!! I bought this for my birthday on ebay for $60 including the shipping and I would do it again. It's the greatest pallet in the world. I use it everyday for work. I have to wear business clothes Mon-Thurs and this goes great w/ everything. The shadows are very soft and pigmented so you only need a little bit. The one I have came with the liners and I am sad they don't come w/ it anymore. The brown one is great for more neutral looks and the black is perfect. I love the velvet outside and just the packaging all together. I now want to buy more urban decay pallets since this was my first, as well as more of the liners. This is the most awesome thing and everyone should buy it.
I'm sorry to go against the grain, but I sent this product back. The colors really didn't do anything for me. I have this problem often with Urban Decay shadows. I've only found 1 pallete that suited me. I think the product is good, but it made me look more blah. I use all kinds of shadow bases and the product went on well, but the colors didn't enhanceo anything about me. Admittedly I have a very odd skin tone. I am between NC15 and NC 20 but with a notable gold tone. Often, I look good in colors made for darker skin tones. I don't understand why that is, but it may be the gold tone. I have pale cool blonde hair and blue eyes.
Colors are absolutely beautiful! Very easy to blend and create different looks with. Worth the wait and the money!!
I finally got it and I am very glad I did. I love every one of the colors. The eyeshadows glide very smoothly. Mine came with the shadow brush instead of the liner, but I'm totally fine with that. Very pleased with this purchase.
