I love the Naked Palette!
Before this, I was not really a fan of nude colors... I've always been more a bright colors gal! But when everyone was raving about how awesome the Naked Palette was and what a great deal it would be... I just had to try it.
I was lucky enough to be one of the early ones to get it. In the height of the craze when it was sold out everywhere, I just happened to walk into a random Sephora and decided to ask if they had it in stock --- they did! I bought it without hesitation and have not looked back since.
It's true that, in a pinch, all you need is this palette to create a whole variety of looks. I went abroad and only took a fraction of my makeup --- the Naked Palette being one of the only palettes I brought with me and it was totally fine!
I love their variety of textures (although more mattes would have made it ++++)
Naked and Buck are both awesome colors to blend out edges and add more dimension to the eye. I've used Hustle, Darkhorse and especially Creep to darken up the crease, or just the general look. Love Virgin for highlighting the browbone and Sin for the inner corner highlight. Half Baked is an AWESOME golden color that can be used by itself for sure, but also over other shadows (Sugar Pill's Love + [matte red] comes to mind) to transform them!
The eyeshadows are awesome quality, just what UD is known for --- they texture is smooth and they apply well. I always use a eyeshadow primer when applying eyeshadow so I can't how it would be if someone used it just on the lid bare. I would say that my worst experience with fallout with be Sidecar -- it had glittery flakes in there; I can't say I really enjoy the glitter fallout but it's still a great color.
I can honestly say that I use every one of these colors regularly (and that's saying a lot... bc I have way too many eyeshadows to use in a lifetime >.<) --- the one I use the least would have to be gunmetal. For my smokey EOTDs I usually still prefer a bright lid color and smoke them with out with a matte black or something.
I don't think this palette is expensive because all the shadows are full-sized and totally worth it if you had it up. Mine also came with a duo-sided 24/7 eyeliner (I heard later versions came with an eyeshadow brush?)
It's nice that they have a mirror, but I hardly use it.
Also, the velvet packaging is lovely/pretty to look at. Mine had gotten a bit dirty (not extremely icky) but I would have preferred the packaging they used on the Naked2 Palette. Also, it should be noted that the Naked Palette is full of warm colors --- if that's not your thing you may not like it --- conversely I've heard that the Naked 2 has more cool colors -- so check that out!
I think this Palette would make a LOVELY gift for someone. I would probably never repurchase this only because I don't think i would ever finish it (if I do finish it, it would be either Buck or Naked... and in that case I would just buy the full size version... if they sell it :) ) continued >>
I love neutral colors simply because I have tan skin and it suits me well that's why I love this palette. I personally like the naked 1 than the naked 2 palette since the naked palette 2 have so many repetitive colors that are very similar with the naked 1 palette so why get them both if they are just almost the same? As for the packaging of the palette, I think the velvet cover is nice but it would be better if the whole case is made of tin can so that it wont get easily dented. I love the colors of this palette especially the naked, buck and toasted while I have this love and hate for the sidecar shade. It got this lovely glow and shade but I HATE its big chunks of glitters that spreads all over my face -_- whenever a sunlight hits my face I sparkle like edward cullen!! all the others shades were ok considering that they are all very pigmented and can last even without any primer (my lids are not very oily). For the price hmmm its kinda expensive and a bit hard to find in my location but i can say its worth it.
I really love this palette! I love shimmer and a lot of the shadows in this palette are shimmery goodness. I have to admit that I do use the lighter shades more than the darker ones, but that's just because i am more drawn to lighter shades on my eyes. My fave darker color in this palette is Toasted. It is gorgeous! I am so glad that i bought this palette because when using a dud palette (that I no longer own since i returned it), i picked this one up and applied some shades from Naked over the previous palettes botch-job and i looked great! *hugs palette*
I was a little reluctant to buy this palette, but Im glad i swapped for it and I really do think its a great idea to have a bunch of neutrals in one place and the packaging is very convenient, thin enough to just grab. I love the matte browns the most and the darker colors but I found the highlight shades to really be lacking,it didn't have the "pop" that I like even when layered over nyx milk pencil (it almost "killed" the white) lots of fallout with the shimmery neutrals (in general with urban decay)I also think that almost all the shades are pretty easily duped however if you are new to makeup, or want everything to be conveniently in one place this is a great palette (a little expensive...) but if you only want it for a few shades, get a z palette and make your own "naked" palette with similar shades by mac etc.
I absolutely love this palette! The colors are beautiful and really easy to blend, you donīt need any other palette because this one works for any day or night look you might want to achieve. The price seems high but these shadows really last for a long time and the come in every color you could possibly need.
I would love a black without shimmer, and no I donīt want to buy Naked2, I love this one i just think it is missing this color.
I donīt really love the package because it gets dirty really easily.
Wonderful palette! Love the colors, the quality and the package.
I love the colors and the quality of theese eyeshadows(except half baked that has too much glitter for my taste and it`s falling down on my face).
I don`t like the packaging because it gets dirty very often and it`s hard to clean it.It is not that travel frendly either because I find that it`s too easy to open(it has a magnet) .
Overall I like this palette very much for everyday use, but I would rather buy the Naked 2 because of the packaging.
I've had this palette for a little over a year and a half and to me, this palette is almost perfect. Compared to the Naked 2, I feel like the original Naked palette is more cohesive and organized when it comes to the color schemes and choices. You get a great variety of variations of warm colors with a few blending shades and a few cool colors for good measure. All the colors work together in harmony to create a look. In contrast, the Naked 2 takes more effort to come up with colors to create looks with because 1) the organization and 2) the majority serve as lighter lid colors and can make your eyes look extremely shimmery. The eye makeup won't have that WOW factor, even if you're going for subtle eyes. The only cons I can think of are 1) while the glitter in Sidecar is more minor compared to Maui Wowie or Midnight Cowboy, it's not my favorite finish. It's a bummer because it's such a gorgeous color. 2) the foiled letters on the cover rub off easily. This is purely aesthetic, but I like to keep my palettes in pristine condition. 3) It's not a problem for most people apparently, but I find that Virgin is waaay too shimmery as a highlight shade. I have a very minor burn scar on my brow bone, and it emphasizes that. The formulas were excellent across the board, making it very easy for beginners to blend.
Absolutely love this palette! Never leave home without it! Buy it, trust me, you won't be disappointed! At first I was slightly intimidated by all the eyeshadows, but there are so many beautiful looks people have created on youtube. It is my go to palette! You might say $50 is a lot for an eyeshadow palette, but each eyeshadow in the same size is $18, so $50 is a great deal since you get 12 eyeshadows in the palette.
I had wanted this for the longest time everrrr! And sad to say, I'm extremely disappointed that I don't even LIKE the colors once applied, I wanted to love it! :( The colors are just shimmers and glitters that all blend together on the eye. I keep trying different looks and they all look the same because of the insane shimmer. It might not sound like much, but I really am used to getting tons of compliments on my eye makeup and after two weeks of daily use with this..I had not gotten a single compliment. It's not about the compliments but it just really confirmed what I felt after creating different looks..I was not impressed. For the price, I feel like it should have a better mix of colors as well as matte shades. I have to return this. Can't justify keeping something I don't love. I will say I absolutely love the packaging, the whole velvet feel and magnetic closure, and the adorable mini eye primer. Even just looking at the colors I get so happy, but it didn't translate onto the eyes.
