I recently bought this after seeing it raved about on YouTube. I was very happy with it. I use at least one color out of it everyday mixed in with my MAC shadows.
Sidecar is a great lid color when you apply a little bit.
Virgin and Sin are too shimmery to use as a under brow highlight so I use them in my inner corner once in a while.
Naked and Buck are my favorites because they are matte (my fave MAC shadows are Haux, Soft Brown, Brun, and Embark) and I think they ally work well together with a few frosts mixed in.
Most of the super glittery shadows I just use for dress up days:)
Overall I love the pallet. Great basics that you can mix with what you have already.
Not impressed! I like four of the colors. I can't stand the rest. Most of the shadows are blendable and all of them are highly pigmented.
I have a neutral skin tone and yet most of the warmer colors have too much of a bronze undertone to do anything more than just look blah on me. It's not that I can't make this work, because I could force myself to wear these and they would just look ok. I prefer matte shadows. Although, I really like shimmery sadows, and I hate glittery shadows. The fallout is obnoxious. I bought this because I wanted a simple and easy to apply set of shadows. The glittery ones are more work than I am willing to put in. So, it's really my own fault for buying this. I gave the palette to my 14 year old neice. She likes it. I can always tell when she's been experimenting with it cause her cheeks are glittery. You can get away with that in jr high! :) I'll stick with Too Faced. Their palettes have never failed me. I can see this working best for medium-warm skin tones. Cool toned girls can find more flattering shadows elsewhere. Some neutral girls can do ok with this.
I love this palette. I have had my original naked palette for over a year now and I have only hit pan on one color. There are so many different looks that can be created with this palette. It is great for everyday wear and night looks as well. It is fair for the price because you are getting twelve shades plus a brush. My only disappointment with this palette. is much like urban decays palettes you get repeats of colors. I would recommend this product to anyone who asks.
I love these shadows. Like everyone else says, they are highly pigmented, blendable, and I love the colors. I haven't used anything else since I bought this, and am looking forward to buying Naked2.
my absolute favourite palette of all time. i prefer these shadows to any others that ive tried, including MAC. i love the mini primer potion it comes with (i also own the full)l size its very handy for travelling.
i love the fact that there is a wide range of shades in this palette (opposed to the naked 2) so you can highlight, shade contour and deepen your eye look using only this palette. its fantastic! i do prefer it to the naked 2 which i also own, as i find there are no good contour shades in that one.
the only problem with the first naked palette is that the velvet packaging gets very grubby, and the mirror is rather small compared to the naked 2.
overall, i recommend this palette to anyone looking for good quality beautiful eye shadows at a decent price. its amazing, you wont regret it!
I love the colors in the palette, they can go well with any eye color. I think the only thing I don't* like about this palette would be that the darker/crease colors seem to fade during the day, even with the primer potion. It might just be a personal issue, but it still is annoying.
Love this palette and use it almost everyday!
The only way i could see this palette being any better is if there were a couple more matte shades to balance out some of the shimmer.
The packaging is very cute, and I've had no problems with it opening or anything when traveling. The only downside to the packaging is it gets dirty looking, and then its hard to clean.
But over all, this is a great must have palette for anyone looking for more 'wearable' colors.
if you don't own lots of shimmery neutrals and like to wear natural looks this is your palette. I was very hesitant because I figured how good could it be, but my husband got me a sephora gift card for christmas so I used it for something I wouldn't normally buy. I got this palette and am really enjoying it. you can do really natural looks and more dramatic smokey looks all with the same palette. definitely recommend it.
What can I say? The Naked Palette ROCKS! The colors are so pretty and they look good on everyone!! Also, I absolutely adore the brush. It's so soft, I just love using it.
I love this pallette! I ordered the Naked 2 pallette online about 6 months ago and have been using it almost everyday lol... I really love the more neutral shades in these pallettes but the shimmer keeps them from being too boring. Don't get me wrong, I love a nice matte neutral eye shadow every once in a while but I tend to lean more towards satin or shimmer finishes, just my preference. Anyways, after having used the Naked 2 pallette so many times, I decided to check out the Naked 1. While in Sephora the other day, I compared the Naked 1 and Naked 2 side by side. Online they look pretty close and so I wasn't really excited about the shadows in Naked 1. But in person I was surprised at how much I liked The Naked 1! Even though they are similar, they are different enough that it's definitely worth having both! The only repeat shadow in both pallettes is a beautiful gold shadow called Half Baked. Half Baked is my Holy Grail gold shadow... It looks so pretty with a black winged eye liner and red lips. Very retro chic =) So I did end up buying the Naked 1 and I have been using it every day since! If I had to choose one, I guess I would have to say Naked 2 just because I've had it longer and I really prefer the sturdier packaging! But if you can afford it, I say get them both! Urban Decay makes wonderful eyeshadows, I'm officially a believer. Very pigmented and great color payoff! They blend wonderfully and really last me all day long when I use them in conjunction with the Urban Decay Eye Shadow Primer Potion.
