So I ended up returning this. I really do think there was something wrong with mine. None of the colors, with the exception of Half Baked, showed up on my skin, and I tried using both UDPP and my Painterly Paint Pot. (I am an NW20) I had just picked this up from ULTA, and I believe that UD has been putting out a more mediocre version of this lately in order to meet demand. What a shame!
I am not a Naked Palette rave reviewer . I like this palette A LOT! I think the colors are a very pretty , useful variation on the neutral/ natural colors that we use 90% of the time . For me I am having a serious love affair with sidecar and half baked. those colors will probably NOT MAKE IT :) and will have to be repurchased separately ( side bar : please email me with swaps on these colors or dupe suggestions!) but the other colors are nice but nothing too special to me . I love the quality , blendability the ease of matching colors ( it would be hard to make a bad eye with this palette unless you went heavy handed) and I think the price is more than fair with the individual colors costing 17.00 each you would only get 3 for the price of this palette .
In my opinion this is a definite 8 of 10 , I think having a choice of brush or pencil would have swayed my opinion slightly but a positive experience and I am pleased with my purchase
The colors are gorgeous and the quality is very good, though I wish this palette wasn't so expensive. I really dislike the brush that comes with it, the bristles are very stiff. It feels more like a concealer brush than an eyeshadow brush, and doesn't deposit much color regardless of how much is on it. A $2 brush from Target does a better job, for that reason I gave this a 4 instead of a perfect 5.
I love this palette... everyone who loves UD knows how creamy, blendable, and overall gorgeous their shadows are so this I had to buy. The brush that comes with it is great for an allover wash of color or crease work and I think it's a great value to come with the palette. I really love the Naked and Buck matte shades, and Virgin is so so pretty for a highlighter color. There is not one shade in this set that I would never use, and that's rare to get with a palette. Overall these shades all really make my blue eyes pop and would look good on absolutely anyone! Well worth the price for 12 full sized shadows all in a cute palette plus the brush. If you're on the fence, I say go buy this now :)
For a more in-depth review of this and 3 other UD palettes plus hi-res pictures and swatches, please see my blog:
everyone must have this palette. it's the one eyeshadow palette that every girl should have in her collection. there's no other value that beats this one. especially if you're addicted to neutrals. you can still create a sultry smokey eye with the darker shades in the palette, but this is great for anyone. even beginners who want to experiment at an extraordinary price.
If there's one eyeshadow palette that is worth the money and the hype, this is it. Nothing beats the Urban Decay Naked Palette in my book. The quality and the quantity of the products that you get in a nicely put together sleek case make this an excellent purchase. With 12 amazingly pigmented eye shadows, 2 smudge-proof and budge-proof eyeliners, and a travel sized eye shadow primer that truly delivers, this palette is worth every penny. $48 is by no means inexpensive, but when you think of all the high quality items that you get with this kit, it's easy to overlook the price. Sure, not everyone is a fan of glittery/shimmery/metallic eye shadows which Urban Decay is known for (aside from the cult-favorite UDPP), but you certainly have to give them props for including at least two matte shades in the palette. Besides, Urban Decay never scrimps on quality in their eyeshadow palettes. The eye shadows are always buttery/creamy, smooth, (with the exception of MCRA and a few other gritty shades which are not in this palette) pigmented and long lasting with or without a primer. Aside from the variety of finishes of the eye shadows in this kit, the range of colors is also something that is worth noting. This palette can easily take you from day to night, from simple to glamour.
This is, for me, the best eyeshadow palette I've ever spent my money on.
I loved this product. I was so happy to find one in stock with the eyeliners, because I had been dying to try Urban Decay's eyeliners. All of the colors were amazing. Only downside for me was I wish there were more matte colors. I loved the colors but don't like wearing all shimmery colors all over my eyes at the same time. The eyeliner were amazing. They went one smooth and they were easy for me to apply.
Oh man, I waited MONTHS for someone to have this in stock in store or online! Couldn't believe people were selling them on Amazon for $100!!!! But I am so so happy I finally got ahold of it. The colors are beautiful. Wish there were more matte colors personally, but that is just because I am on a matte-kick at the moment. love love LOVE this pallet. And really a great deal for the amount of poduct you get. I didn't cringe at all forking over 50 bucks for it!
This is my favorite eyeshadow of all time. Even though there are no exciting colors in this palette.. let be realistic. Normally women everyday dont go out wearing bright eyeshadows. Even if bright eyeshades may appeal o us, they never get much use. This palette has 12 beautiful mostly shimmery, but some matte colors. The double ended eyeliner is an added bonus because its got ur brown and black all in one stick. This palette is essential to my makeup collection. And the packaging is the cutest thing ever. Yes the shadows are dupable, but this is the palette ive ever seen that has all neutral shadow u would ever needed in just one little palette.
Love it! Not like this product needs another review, but the colours are beautiful and are so versatile. You can keep it simple for work or have some serious drama for evening or going out.I do go out of town every couple of weeks and this palette is all I need to take with me. I get day and night time looks with this. I use Half Baked on the inner third of my lower lash line (nice tip from make up geek) to brighten up my eyes. Works great! The only colour I haven't really used is Smog, I use it as a contour sometimes. The shadows blend well and have really nice pigmentation.I do agree with precious reviewers that there could be another matte shadow or two. But in either case it's a great palette. As for the Primer Potion, I like it, but I'm not sure if I would but it as it seems alot of product would be wasted. The packaging isn't very user friendly, I think alot of product could be wasted since the applicator cant reach every angle of the tube. I think I'll cut my little sample open when I think it's done just to see how much is left before I decide to invest in a full size one.
