Ahhh the Naked palette - probably the most talked about palette of all time.
- Beautifully pigmented eye shadows
- Matte shades (Naked, Buck) are included
- Eye shadows are all significantly different from each other, however still can be used together
- Combination of warm and cool toned shadows
- Combination of light, medium, and dark eye shadows
- High ratio of shimmer shadows to matte shadows (10 shimmer, only 2 matte)
- Two of the shimmery shades have significant glitter fall out (sidecar and gunmetal)
So while the pros of this palette outweigh the cons, somehow I still don't see myself reaching for it a lot because I need more mattes in my "everyday" look. That however is my own fault for buying the palette when I am a person who only likes shimmer on the lid and inner corner (not in the crease or on the brow bone). Perhaps if the Lorac Pro Palette had come out when I purchased this I might have gone for that instead. There are also shades that I simply don't like and pretty much never use, but that's a matter of personal preference (virgin, half baked, dark horse, gunmetal).
Anyways, if you like shimmer, this is a great palette and excellent value for money.
This is my all time favorite palette! I see myself reaching for it almost every single day. The colors are absolutely gorgeous! You get an array of browns, taupes, golds, and light neutrals which are perfect for everyday makeup looks. The quality of the shadows are perfection, as are all shadows from Urban Decay..they blend like a dream, and I experience very minimal fallout if there is any. I would recommend this palette to anyone who is a beginner and trying to experiment with eyeshadows, and of course to anyone who loves neutral eye looks. To some the pricing may seem a bit high, BUT you must remember that you are getting 12 full-sized eyeshadows (individual shadows are $18 each), shader brush, and mini primer potion all for $50. This is a staple piece in many women's makeup collections, and I think if you don't have, definitely try it!
Worth the money! Need a lot less shadow to achieve the smoky effect compared to cheaper brands! Favorite piece in my make up bag!!!
My most used and loved palette. Gorgeous. I would not recommend it for those looking for mostly matte shades or bright colors (obviously lol). To everyone else I'd recommend it. Even when you already have loads of neutrals/these type of shades, these are such lovely pigmented good quality shadows, I think you will use them regardless haha! Virgin great for highlighting, buck great for contouring in crease, naked across the entire lid, creep with gunmetal for a night time smokey look. I use every color, except sin which I'm not a fan of. All the others are gorgeous in my opinion. My only thing is the outside of the packaging, it gets dirty and the 'naked' logo wears of very fast.
I use toasted and hustle quite a lot because of the pairings. Lovely set of colors; worth the hype if you can splurge on it.
This is amazing! The range of warm colours means anyone can use this palette. Also, you can use the eye shadows for more than just your eyes, for example "buck" for contouring and "Virgin" for highlighting. The colours have great pigmentation and last all day, especially with the free primer! It's really worth saving up for this palette! :)
I got this as a 21st birthday present from my friends recently
First of all...the packaging is GREAT! Love the Velvet texture of the casing <3
The staying power of these eye shadows (especially after using the Primer Potion that comes with it) is absolutely great! Maybe a little too good, haha, makes it a bit hard to correct my makeup after putting it on.
I'm currently in Taiwan and my gosh it humid and hot here (average 35C each day) and I'm usually either in an air conditioned room or outside in the heat, which the eye shadows do not melt or slip and slide. It is great!
I would never have bought this palette myself, the pricing of it really is just a bit too dear for my wallet. So sadly, despite how well this palette goes on I would most likely not repurchase this :(
Good Quality eyeshadow, it is just me or do these shadows actually look better after 3hours of wear? Anyways, they blend easily and wear shear and well- you can put other deeper shades and top them off with these shiny gems. I bought this palette and was actually a little hesitant to try it(took me 6 weeks). But now I know that if I only have 15mins to look hot, I can depend on these shades. Surprising fav of the pack was the shade Sidecar, which i thought was a no no for my tawny complex. Minimal flaking. Beautiful.
I was really excited to receive this item in a swap based on the hype around it. I've had it for about a few months and I think if I reviewed this three months ago when I first got it, it would have received shining stars, in this case lippies. At first glance the palette seems very promising, which is true. In my case I was restricted to one look when using this palette, and I agree with the reviewer that said when she would use different shades it would always come out looking the same. I have that problem with this palette. In fact, there are only two shades that I really go for now, and every now and then one other.
I didn't give this two lippies because the quality of these eyeshadows are pristine, the pigmentation is phenomenal and I don't find the price to be outrageous. You get twelve utilizing shadows for the price of $50. If you think about it, that's $4 a shadow. Whereas if you but on individual it would be $18. And yes, they are the same quantity wise. Every shadow in the naked palette is 0.05 oz, and if you buy on shadow it will also be 0.05 oz. Plus the packaging of this product is classy and velvet like.
With that said it kind of balances out, and I don't regret getting this. Yes, for me it's restricting but on the other hand it is not a lose at all. It's a palette I can rely on, I only wish there were more matte colors in the palette.
LOVE this palette! I went to Ulta hoping to snag the Naked II palette, but they were sold out. Each shade is so silky, smooth and pigmented--especially in combination with UDPP. My fav shades are Sin, Naked and Darkhorse. The only reason I won't repurchase is that I'll get Naked II next time!
