I guess I'm in the minority here, but I did not care for this palette at all.
I do like a little bit of shimmer on my eyes if it's subtle, but this was over the top.
First, I felt that most of the colors were not that pigmented, so I had to apply more to actually see the color. The biggest issue I had with this is that I looked like a disco ball throughout the day! There was glitter all over my face and I was embarrassed to talk to people because I felt that I looked ridiculous. I returned this to Ulta and when they asked "Was anything wrong with it?" I replied, "I don't like having glitter all over my face." They were cool about it, but I cannot believe how insanely expensive this eye shadow palette (almost $60) is for the result to be a face full of glitter!! Would NOT repurchase.
I really love this palette. Between this and the Naked 2, I have enough colors to make an infinite number of looks.
With my complexion, I look like a clown with most colored eyeshadows... so these natural/neutrals are perfect for me.
I like the fact that they're shimmery and don't have many mattes. I like a little "pop" but without the bright blues and purples that plague me so.
The only real downfall to this palette is the packaging. I bought Naked 2 first; I have become quite accustomed to the tin that snaps shut much more securely.
The Naked palette is just a soft, velvety brown box with a slight magnetic enclosure. It just closes like a book, so if you wanted to transport this with you for touch-ups or travel, you might want to take other measures to ensure that it stays shut. I can imagine this slipping open and the contents crumbling all over the contents of the bag that it's in.
If/When they reformulate or re-release this palette, I would hope that they decide to change the packaging.
Other than that, I love this palette.
A beautiful product. Very usable! I use this palette everyday and find that the matte colours are brilliant for an everyday look. You can use the other richer colours or the shadows with sparkle for night looks, you could easily get a beautiful smokey eye from this palette. There are so many gorgeous colours for a solid amount of money and the quality of the shadows are amazing, for me they are on par with MAC eyeshadows, so what's not to love about it?
-A lot of product for your buck
-beautiful neutral shades
-perfect for travel
-NOT ENOUGH MATTES:(
-darker shadows are of lower quality IMO
Overall an amazing palette.
I use virgin, sin, naked, buck, half baked and toasted most, they are phenomenal.
Just wished they had a few more matte shades, like a matte black
I just bought this palette recently, love it I use it everyday now but I wished they would have them more matte colors in this palette. $50 is not too bad of compare to Mac.
My all-time favorite palette! I love the versatility that this palette has! I use virgin on my lid and naked in crease for day-time look. But I can also do beautiful smokey eyes, and stage eyes too! The only negative is that I rarely use the last 5-6 colors in the palette, but otherwise the selection of colors is perfect. I find the glittery colors will crease without a primer, but the two matte shades have not creased in the time I've had this product!
Overall, I would repurchase!
I mean, yeah, it's a beautiful palette. I'm not a huge fan of the brush it comes with, but that's just me.
As for the wear, it does stay. It's not a great palette for just trying to do your eye shadow quickly and going out. I think it kind of just blends together too much to become one ambiguous color. I think I am going to try wetting it to make it more intense and using smaller brushes.
I think some of the colors don't go well with the palette as a whole, though it does make for options at least. I do find I make larger dents in certain colors and never use others.
Why did I wait so long to get this!?! What a fabulous collection of neutrals. You can create fun and different work-friendly looks everyday. Then I just add some "creep" and/or "gunmetal" and my after-work look is perfect. I use a primer, of course, but I think this has great staying power. I'd like more than a magnet to keep it shut, but that's minor because this palette will forever be in my collection. Next up, Naked II.
This eyeshadow palette is the best thing to ever happen to my makeup collection! The colors are amazing, the consistencey is unbeatale, everything about this product gets an A+. This palette runs around $70 (can) but is SOOOOOOOO worth the money, I can not even express how worth it, it is. Every girl needs to go buy this, I promise it wont be the last time you purchase it!!!
