I'm a big fan of neutral, natural eyeshadows and use them as my daily look. Unfortunately, I also have some of the oiliest lids on the planet and Asian eyelids that crease onto itself. So I finally coughed up the $50 and bought this infamous palette, and it every bit lives up to the hype. The colors are insanely pigmented, so much to the point that the first time I used it I actually had to wipe it off and redo it because it came out way darker than I had expected! The shadows also blend like a dream. A thing that came as a happy surprise was the usability of all the colors. I usually only use browns and tans, so I didn't expect much use out of the non-browns such as Hustle and Toasted. To my surprise, the non-browns come out as very nice neutrals and look every bit as nice as classic browns like Darkhorse. At the end of the day the eyeshadow still looked almost perfect; no fading or smearing. The only change was a slight amount of creasing where my Asian eyelids fold under, but that's to be expected due to my eyelid shape and oily lids. Though I haven't tried the shadows with the primer it came with, I'd guess that if I used primer there would be no creasing at all. My palette came with a Good Karma eyeshadow brush, which was hefty and well crafted. However, I don't use it because the bristles seem a little bit too stiff in my opinion, so I gave it to my sister and use my own eyeshadow brush. The price is a bit high for an eyeshadow palette, but considering how expensive Urban Decay products are and the amount of product you're given (12 full-sized shadows, a brush, and a mini bottle of primer), it's a pretty solid splurge on an essential if you use neutrals for your everyday look. If I ever run out of this product (which shouldn't be anytime soon, according to other people's experiences and the pigmentation of the shadows), I will definitely repurchase.
Amazing palette, top quality eyeshadows that are smooth, pigmented and last all day (especially with a primer like mac paint pots). They are neutral and perfect for everyday wear. I use this non stop and will forever love it and repurchase it if I ever run out which I don't see happening anytime soon as I have only hit pan on one shadow (naked - perfect crease colour for pale skin) even thought I use this almost everyday. My favourite formula of eyeshadows I have ever tried (and I have tried a lot!). Expensive but reasonably priced considering the amount of wearable shadows you get - great investment. Packaging can get a bit dirty but that is my only complaint.
- Very versatile palette. You can go form natural/day looks with those great neutrals to dramatic/night looks with those more darker colours.
- Great pigmentation and also blends well
You really can't say any more. It's just such a great eyeshadow palette with all those colours as well as the great quality of them. I really recommend it.(:
This product is pretty expensive but couldn't be more perfect. I could use this everyday, my favourite color being "half baked", that I seem to use the most. It comes with a great brush the applies the shadow really well. Used in combination with the primer, you can have the prettiest shimmer eyes everyday.
I was a late comer to the whole Urban Decay Naked Palette phenomenon, but better late than never. I am a big M.A.C. eyeshadow fan but thought I'd give it a try. LOVE IT. So much I bought the Naked Palette 2. I intermix both as well as my M.A.C. I love to experiment pairing colors, mixing colors, and different looks. My choices are endless. The colors go on really well and blend very well. You do need to put some translucent powder under your eye before you apply or you have sparkles. Oh yah, if you like matte shadows, do not use this.
I adore this eyeshadow palette. It contains 12 high quality eyeshadows in an array of beautiful neutral, universally flattering colors. Virgin, Sin, Naked, and Buck have become some of my HG eyeshadows that never fail me. I love using Half Baked, Smog, and Darkhorse for an ultra warm smokey eye. The eyeshadow brush is very nice, high quality and a breeze to use. It is expensive at $50, but it is a great deal considering how much I use this palette.
I got the knock off version of this palette by Profusion Cosmetics. It's called Sultry and Neutrals. It's like the same thing! Mine was $5 compared to $40. You can get it at Walgreens or Big Lots. Save your money! They also made a Naked 2 palette knock off that's called Midnight Fever. Also the same exact colors as the Naked 2 palette and also was $5.
Received this in the mail today and love it! Lives up to the hype. The colours are beautiful yet subtle and work really well together. Well worth the money
I would have put a double sided eyeshadow brush like Stila but in all other words I LOVE it
This is essential for every girl. Neutral colours for everyday looks. I love it! <3 I use it everyday. I use it for eyes, and even to fill out my eye brows. Just everything you can possibly ask for in a eye shadow palette. Absolutely love it. I wish the packaging was a little bit more sturdy so I can shove it in my bag when I'm travelling. I do like the mirror that it comes with and the brush is fairly good quality as well. Will repurchase for sure!!! :D
