I was really excited to receive this item in a swap based on the hype around it. I've had it for about a few months and I think if I reviewed this three months ago when I first got it, it would have received shining stars, in this case lippies. At first glance the palette seems very promising, which is true. In my case I was restricted to one look when using this palette, and I agree with the reviewer that said when she would use different shades it would always come out looking the same. I have that problem with this palette. In fact, there are only two shades that I really go for now, and every now and then one other.
I didn't give this two lippies because the quality of these eyeshadows are pristine, the pigmentation is phenomenal and I don't find the price to be outrageous. You get twelve utilizing shadows for the price of $50. If you think about it, that's $4 a shadow. Whereas if you but on individual it would be $18. And yes, they are the same quantity wise. Every shadow in the naked palette is 0.05 oz, and if you buy on shadow it will also be 0.05 oz. Plus the packaging of this product is classy and velvet like.
With that said it kind of balances out, and I don't regret getting this. Yes, for me it's restricting but on the other hand it is not a lose at all. It's a palette I can rely on, I only wish there were more matte colors in the palette.
LOVE this palette! I went to Ulta hoping to snag the Naked II palette, but they were sold out. Each shade is so silky, smooth and pigmented--especially in combination with UDPP. My fav shades are Sin, Naked and Darkhorse. The only reason I won't repurchase is that I'll get Naked II next time!
I'm not a huge eyeshadow wearer but I wanted to get into it so I decided to buy this. At £36 in the UK I was hesitant but decided to get it as I found it on a website for £32.40. The quality and pigmentation of these eyeshadow are fantastic. I have the UK 'dupes' from MUA (cheap brand in superdrug) and although a good colour match the quality just isn't the same. The UD eyeshadows are creamy and easy to blend, however I don't find them particularly long lasting. Without a decent eye primer these most definitely crease, even with the UD primer potion they sometimes do - not great. Also, the shimmery shades tend to have some fallout and so you end up with glitter on your cheeks - also not great. The packaging, compared to the Naked 2 and Naked basics is shocking - a velvety type material which means if you use this a lot, the writing is going to wear off and the packaging is grubby after a while. With the amount of shimmery shades in this pallete I use it more for nights out or big events, I rarely use it on a day to day basis. This is not to say I don't like it, I do, I love it - but if the Naked Basics had been out when I decided to get into eyeshadows I probably would have bought that instead.
I love this eyeshadow palette. All of the colors are beautiful and wearable. The shadows are creamy and easy to blend. Although I love Naked, I don't see myself using it up anytime soon and when I do, I think I'll just try another palette instead of repurchasing. I highly recommend buying it though.
The naked palette is one of the few palette in which i use every color. The shadows have a great texture, they blend easily and the fallouts are minimal. My favorite colors are half-baked, virgin/sin, darkhorse and smog which are, in my mind, the softest most buttery shadows. The only colour I don't like that much is sidecar because I found it too glittery. If you are looking for a good neutral palette, go with this one. Not only will you be able to create multiple looks to make you beautiful, you will also have lots of fun :)
Perfect palette for the nude lover. Will definitely repurchase.
Really nice one from UD here. Twelve amazing shades [my favs would be Buck, Dark Horse and Hustle] that can really satisfy your lust for neutrals. Mostly shimmery/ satin finishes with the exception of two mattes [Buck and Naked]. Really smooth, blendable and pigmented. Great for bringing with you when you travel. As for price, buying palettes are always more worth it and for twelve almost full size pans you really cannot go wrong with this one. Plus the eyeliner duo/ brush inside makes it less of a hassle to always have to pack separate tools/eyeliner! I personally love the suede like packaging with gold words [makes it look so edgy] although I can see why this is a problem as well, as eyeshadow may just catch and cling onto the packaging making the palette look like one hot mess. But overall, gotta say, great job UD!
I bought this not long after it came out. I was a bit nervous as it was pricy and I am far from loaded. I still use this product a lot even though I have a lot more makeup. It's not going to be your stunning palette or the fun palette. But it is an every day one you can feel confident in turning to. I use all of the colors in one look or another.
The dark brown, Darkhorse, is one of my favorites. I use it to smudge out black liner, as a corner for a smoked look, smudged under the eye with a 239. It is very versatile. Virgin and Sin are lovely highlighting colors, depending on the looks I want to go for. Halfbaked is a decent gold. I even like Sidecar, the glittery shade in the bunch. I always use a UDPP and carefully pat with a 239 and I never have issues. You can always do foundation after eye makeup to minimize the cheerleader sparkle cheek look. I ended up liking Toasted and Hustle, which surprised me.
All in all, this is a solid palette. I think it's something one can use all the time. I also have the 15 Year Anniversary, Smoked, and BoS IV.
This is one of my best purchase ever! Eye-shadows are very pigmented, beautiful, smooth and last all day. Very perfect for everyday wear; night and day. I use buck for contouring and virgin for highlighting because the colours are very versatile and perfect for my tone. To compare with Lorax Pro and The Balm Nude 'Tude, I love NAKED better!!! Totally worth it!!! RM160 (Malaysia)
This is a great product overall. You dust the shadow on your lid and it does not crease at all, granted you put on the primer potion. The shadows are a bit shimmery, sometimes a little over the top. You have to really put this product on in intervals or it will be a glittery mess. The matte eyeshadows are really nice, though. The eyeshadows blend well with each other. The only reason I would maybe not buy this product again is because of the price, it is 50$ for the palette which I think is very overpriced.
Pros: blends well, does not crease, stays on all day
Cons: pricey, very shimmery
