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.
So i have my Naked palette a couple days now and i wont repeat all the great things tht have been said already. I think the colours are wonderful, esp. toasted,hustle,sin, smog and buck. But im sure ill get to the other soon enough. For the price, its a great deal and the packaging is amazing. I would have liked the eyeliners but its not a big deal to me. Would repurchase if i ever ran out and highly recommend to anyone who loves makeup.
This is the best makeup palette ever! It is my go to palette with everything in it. There are so many versatile looks with this palette.
Virgin- A very nice highlight color, but even though I love shimmery satin colors, i am not a fan of them for highlights.
Sin- This is a good neutral color that is adds a pop of color for a natural look.
Naked- is a good subtle crease color.
Sidecar- I love this color except for the crazy glitter fallout. It is a great sparkly color but use a tissue under your eye and a primer to prevent fallout.
Buck is another great crease color.
Half baked is the BEST color in the entire world. With every makeup look, I end up putting half baked on somewhere (this makes a really cool eyeliner).
Smog and Darkhorse are very dark colors and very pigmented. A little bit in the crease looks nice with either of these colors.
Toasted is a warmer peachy gold color that is nice on the lids
Hustle is a burgundy-purple color that is very pigmented.
Creep is almost black but a dark navy blue color.
Gunmetal is a versatile color, wearable in the crease or on the lid.
My naked palette came with the double sided eyeliner and I love it. They glide on very smoothly.
Overall this palette is fantastic! I will defiantly buy again. I say the price is not that expensive for 12 eyeshadows which are normally around $17 and 2 eyeliners that are normally $18. It is almost a $240 value for around $40.
This palette was love at first sight!! When I saw it at Sephora, electric sparks flew and I HAD to have it! I was crushed when they were out! So when I got an email from Sephora that they had them in stock again, I ordered mine that day! There are so many great reviews about it and I will chime in that I love the elegant purple velvet packaging, the colors are richly pigmented, buttery soft and like all UD shadows, the colors blend well and last all day. I got mine with the e/s brush and mini UD primer that I just adore. This palette is great for travel to be able to create lots of different looks without having to drag my MAC shadows around. I have watched some youtube tutorials for ideas on doing different looks and love Kandee the makeup artist who shows how to do a gorgeous smokey eye with this palette. These shadows can be mixed and matched and are perfect to wear for a professional look for day and a smoldering sultry/sexy look for evening. I have experimented with using my ELF e/s primer that only cost $1 and honestly, it works just as well as the UD primer! This is a must have palette for everyone!!!!
It's a nice palette and I have to give Urban Decay credit for being among the first ones to bring out a nude palette and starting this huge trend.
However over time I found myself only using about 4 shadows frequently. And for the same price I could have gotten a quad from Mac with those colors or even better ones (I find Mac shadows are a bit better quality, especially those with shimmer). Keep in mind that Mac pans are 1.5g vs 1.3g in the Naked Palette.
It's still a great product to have though and I don't regret buying it but as of today I would probably invest my money differently.
I love this palette! The colors are perfect and neutral and work for almost any occasion.
A few cons:
Glitter fallout (standard for UD eyeshadow)
I bought it before it came with the free brush
I had been eyeing this product for a while now but the price tag and the low availability of the product was holding me back. When I found one at my mall's Sephora I finally decided to get it. I believe the newer palettes come with a brush instead of a double-ended eyeliner. I love all the colors and they are super pigmented and can be used for every-day and night-time looks. I've been using it every day since I purchased it! I think it is well worth the money spent!
I am still not sure how much I like this palette. I have the palette that came with the brush. Some of the colors blend right into my skin and it looks like I am wearing nothing. The concept was great but I think that they could have changed some of the colors or made this into a palette that contained only limited edt. colors only. I think that they should have had a dark black and a rich chololate brown. I am going to keep this palette since it is the same price as buying 3 regular UD shadows.
EDIT: So far this has been my go to palette for everyday looks. I even mix some of the neutral shades with eyeshadows from the UD Deluxe palette.
