To start off this review, i have both palettes and there are some differences between the two. The Naked palette is more of a darker neutral palette that i tend to lean towards when wanting a everyday smokey eye or even dramatic nighttime smokey eye, you can use it for everyday but i tend to grab for it for the reasons stated above! The packaging is okay, but i don't like how things can stick to the 'velvety' packaging, i have dogs so little hairs will occasionally stick to this palette, but thats a quick fix! One last thing about the packaging is that it is a little flimsy at times but if dropped holds together very well and protects the shadows! One thing i don't like is how both Naked palettes have the color "Half Baked", why not add a different shade of gold to the Naked or Naked 2? Other than that i am going to go onto the colors, my go to colors in this palette are Virgin, Sin, Naked, Sidecar, and Toasted these are great for everyday but if you want a smokey eye these definitely go good with darker colors like Hustle, Creep and Gunmetal! I do recommend this to everyone as i think these colors would look good on any skintone and these are very high quality shadows, easily blendable and look great up close and from afar! I think this is worth the price and if you can get it on sale, makes it even a greater buy!
Well, I held out a long time since I don't wear eyeshadow all the time... I go thru phases of wearing it... but I had a 15% off coupon last month and I finally pulled the trigger and got this pallette... and as already noted many, many times... it's totally worth it.
Beautiful colors... they stay put! (Imagine that)... I love it.
I've worn it every day since I received it in the mail....
You won't be disappointed....
After years of looking for an eye shadow to replace my beloved discontinued Revlon Wet/Dry shadow, I finally caved in to all the hype and bought this. I don't know if my expectations were too high based on all the rave reviews of this palette, but for the price I was expecting a shadow that would be highly pigmented- i.e. would show up really well, and that would have some staying power. Maybe it's just me, but even with the primer, none of these shadows are particularly spectacular on me. And I have e.l.f. shadows that cost a dollar that last longer on my eyes than these do. One thing I will say about this palette is that the colors are great, at least in the box. Unfortunately though, for me the search continues.
I have seen the positive reviews on this palette for years and have been curious about all the fuss. But I really wasn't into neutral colors previously so spending $50 on this palette didn't make sense. In the past few years I have gravitated more and more towards more neutral and interchangable colors and expressed an interest in this palette to my sister. Fortunately for me my wonderful sister purchased this for me for my birthday and I am so glad she did. I absolutely love this palette with all of the great but generally subtle colors. Most can be used together in one combination or another and I like the ease of having it all in one palette nice and convenient. The eye shadows are soft and blendable yet long lasting. The eye shadow brush that comes with the palette makes application a breeze and with the UDPP I got 10+ hours of wear from the shadows without creasing or fading. A mini UDPP comes with the palette. Yes, most of the colors are shimmers which I like. I guess that is my compromise for going to neutrals - I still need a bit of bling. I didn't have any trouble with fall out of the shimmer as some have stated. I have never said this about an eye shadow palette but I could take this on vacation and only take this with no back up eye shadow and be happy. Initially I thought the $50 price tag was too high but now that I have tried this out IMO it is well worth the money. I like this enough that if I should ever use the whole thing up I would repurchase. Now I want to check out Naked 2.
I was not too impressed with this product. I bought it because i read so many positive reviews about it but to me, this eyeshadow palette is just too ordinary for its price. the colors are nice, but nothing spectacular for $50 price tag. I can do same exact look with a cheaper $10 pallete from nyx and other drugstore eyeshadows such as maybelline, and loreal shadows which also has same colors.
This was my first expensive eyeshadow purchase ( all other eyeshadows I own are from drugstores). i find no difference in quality whatsoever. the lasting quality is okay, no better than any of my cheaper shadows.
for the same price, you can stock up on alot more eyeshadows at cvs, walgreens or walmart.
I would not purchase it again and my advise is to look for dupes for the colors as the quality is the same as drugstore shadows.
I couldn't decide if I wanted the Naked or Naked 2 after days of thought I decided to go with the naked palette and I made a great decision!!! Even better it was friends and family day at Ulta so I got 20% off!! I love this product will def buy again!! I recommend to all my friends! It's great for day wear and even better for night! Not to glittery just GREAT!!!!
Simply loving it! Everything you could ask for in an eye shadow palette
I am so in love with this! Ive been wanting to buy this for sooooo long but couldn't shell out 50$ so I finally mustered up the money and purchased this. Best purchase ever!!!!!! The colors are so pigmented and blend fabulously I love it I have so many different eye looks from this palette and they last all day and night if your thinking about purchasing this do it!!!!!
I'm in love with this palette. My friends gave me this almost two years ago and I still have all the eyeshadows. They have an amazing quality, and if you take care of them, they will last for ages, really. It has more shimmery colors, and even though I like to keep it natural, you can use some eyeshadows for an everyday look or for going out. These are probably the eyeshadows that I use 99% of the times that I wear makeup.
