I got this palette today in the mail from Sephora and as soon as I looked at the colors I fell in love with it. The only problem is that I have hooded eyes that are deep blue with hazel and I've looked up makeup looks on youtube already today and tried a few out and they all just look weird with my eyes. So, I will have to play around with this palette a bit but so far, love it.
Just have to add my rave to this palette. I've had it for over a year and it's my fallback palette when I've got to travel. I love how it's got a big enough range of colours to let me change it up when I'm travelling, but how it doesn't take up too much room. It's work-appropriate too, always a bonus.
I also wanted to do a review because I've noticed that my pan of Sidecar is no longer as super-glittery as it once was. It's actually very wearable now! I think the glitter must be packed on the top layer. It used to be a glitter bomb on my cheeks whenever I used it, but now it seems to have so little glitter, I actually can wear it to work. This is a bonus because Sidecar is one of my favourite shades in the whole palette. (I even bought YDK because I heard that it was a non-glittery dupe.)
Will definitely repurchase when this runs out, but I've had it for over a year and the colours are so pigmented, I don't think I'm going to be running low for a long while. Unlike a lot of other reviewers, I really like the fuzzy cover, and how it's packaging is lighter than Naked 2. I think it makes it more travel-friendly.
Everyone's been raving about this product. And I can find tons of youtube videos on swatches or tutorial about this. I was just very excited about this product and decided to spend big bucks on this. I had to wait for a week while beatybay.com is shipping the product to me (urban decay or sephora aren't available in Finland *total sad face). I just received this a week ago and just can't understand what the rave is all about.
I have tons of bare minerals loose eyeshadows, and elf studio cream eyeshadows (in bronzed, candlelight and natural glow) and none of my friends or family can tell the difference which product I'm using now. For the high price with no difference at all, this wasn't worth the spending.
Now I just can't wait to do my daily makeup with MUA's heaven and earth palette that I just ordered yesterday while MUA's website was having a 40% off (costs me only £2,4) instead of spending literally 1€ for each time I do my make up with urban decay naked palette :D I admit that it's a lot better pigmented than coastal scents 88 warm palette. So for the high price, NO i wouldn't repurchase :)
I would use and bring this palette with me only when I'm travelling or sleeping over with friends. Sad to say, but some of them look down on elf and lower dollar products. So I really have to bring this palette and MAC products with :P
I love this eyeshadow palette! The Naked Palette has warm neutral colours which suits particularly those with light - medium skin.
I don't think it will show up so well on someone with darker skin tones. Anyways the colours are very pigmented and go on really smoothly.
It has a range of colours for any occasion. During the day I use the matte and satin/shimmery eyeshadows and when I got out I tend to use the glittery ones and it looks amazing.
The downside is that most colours are shimmery and there are a few glittery ones as well, which won't do well on saggy eyelids. Also there can be a bit of fallout when applying which is a pain.
If you think it's too expensive the cheaper alternative would be MUA - 12 Shade Undressed Palette (UK only) or the NYX Caviar and Bubbles Palette
Otherwise I highly recommend this to those who want a neutral multifunctional eyeshadow palette.
I start off wanting to compare naked one and naked two, because for the longest time I couldn't decide which to get. Eventually I sprung for both and I'm pleased I did, I mix and match a lot. I don't think one is better than the other. Sometimes I use one more often, then the next week I use the other more often.
Now onto this one specifically. The quality of UD's shadow's can't be beat. When I use primer, this stays on ALL DAY - like, 8am-midnight. It looks pretty much the same when I get home as it did when I first put it on. Even if I don't use primer, I get a good 7-8 hours from this shadow and it still looks great. The colors go on smoothy, and have great pigment.
Also, while this product is expensive, its totally worth it. I got Naked 1 and Naked 2 about 9 months ago, and use them at least 5 days a week (I really don't use any other shadows because these palates give me everything I need for neutral shadow, work appropriate looks and smokey night eyes). I still have a ton left, in fact, it looks like I barely used any shadow. These palates will last you forever, and even if you throw them away every year, $50/year for shadow really isn't that bad.
My only complaint is the color gunmetal. It has tons of glitter fallout - it gets all over my face. Thank god, none of the other colors do this even though they have just as much glitter. Plus, I think the color is just rather ugly. Still 11 amazing colors. Sin is particularly awesome for the inner part of my eye and darkhorse is an awesome lid color. All the colors are great and versatile. If you are going to buy one splurge-y makeup item, I would make it this or Naked2.
Let me start off by saying I have had the same urban decay naked palette for over two years. I would recommend this to anyone. Here are some pros and cons:
-amazing quality eyeshadows, all of which are full sized
-variety of colors for neutral every day looks & smokier night looks
-good quality brush
-overall one of the best beauty items you will buy
-Packaging is sleek and can fit into a suitcase or travel bag easily.
-Sidecar and Creep can have fallout, sidecar being the most
-is 50 bucks, so not cheap by any means.
-Original naked palette packaging with suede can get dirty; gold foil letters will peal.
Here is my review of the shadows:
Virgin-frosty pale pink toned white. beautiful pigmentation, slightly frosty but can be blended out for a nice sheen for highlighting the eyes and/or cheekbone
Sin-my FAVORITE shade. Shimmery pink-toned champagne. most beautiful pigmentation and glow to the skin. perfect for lid color and highlight.
Naked-matte light warm brown. great pigmentation and perfect for contouring eyes.
Sidecar-cool-toned shimmery taupe with TONS of silver glitter. this is a beautiful shade but it will fall out all over your cheeks if you don't watch out.
Buck-medium color warm slightly chocolate matte brown. Great for adding depth to eye looks, great pigmentation. can be used to contour darker skin tones.
Half-baked-gorgeous bronze-toned gold. not too yellow or orange. most amazing pigmentation and sheen.
Smog-sexy bronze with gold flecks. this color makes me think of sexy summer nights. beautiful pigmentation.
Darkhorse-deep green-toned brown with flecks of gold,green,&slight red. this color will make green eyes pop! great for smoking liner and adding darkness to the eyes.
toasted-rosey, shimmery brown. great pigmentation, nice lid shade for green eyes, but looks good on everyone. this can make your lids look irritated so be careful.
Hustle- purple toned darkest brown with purple flecks throughout it. can be slightly dry at first, but then that seems to go away with use. great for those who want a purple look to their eyes without actually using purple.
Creep-strange color, looks black with blue and silver glitter, but is actually a deep navy blue. I never use this shape except when I'm doing a smokier look. Great for those who want to use an eyeshadow for eyeliner with a kick. decent pigmentation.
Gunmental-my least favorite color, but don't let that deter you. it is a very nice deep silvery grey with some nice silver shimmers. good pigmentation.
Overall this palette is amazing. Some may be turned away by the price, but I guarantee, if you're a lover of neutral toned more natural looks, this maybe the only palette you use.
I got this a year ago and I am finally getting around to reviewing it. Long story short, it's changed my life.
The palette is expensive, but I haven't bought a single eyeshadow since then. If you love eyeshadow and playing with makeup is your hobby, then this will obviously not be the case for you, but for someone who only wears heavy eyeshadow occasionally and prefers classic/neutral looks, this could be the only palette you need. The quality of these eyeshadows is so much better than that of the DS eyeshadows I was using. Application is easier, and the final look is better and lasts longer.
I'm not very skilled when it comes to eyeshadow application, but the Naked palette makes multidimensional eyeshadow looks very easy. I would sometimes get frustrated at first because while most colors blend very easily, there are a few that give me trouble. Weirdly, my sister also has this palette and one of the colors that I have difficulty with is one of her go-tos. I think you just have to play around and figure out what works for you. For makeup novices like me, there are a lot of Naked palette tutorials and those can be a great place to start, even if you end up simplifying the look. This palette has been a great companion and guide on my journey to figuring out eye makeup. Having the right tools makes it a lot easier and I wish I had known off the bat that getting the most out of this palette requires, in my opinion, a minimum of three brushes: a flat one (which is included), a fluffy brush, and a crease brush.
I highly recommend this product. A year later, my look has been totally elevated. I typically use 5 or more of the shades in any one look and I would have never collected colors that worked so well together on my own. And even if I had tried to, they probably wouldn't have been as high quality and wouldn't blend so seamlessly. It's hard to contemplate repurchasing because I've barely made a dent in a year, but that's one more reason why this palette is worth investing in.
I just got this for my bday and I'm so in love , the quality is amazing and all the colors are perfect to create a lot of looks. I just wish here in Mexico makeup wasn't as expensive as it is, I read in the US it costs 50 dollars and here it's almost the double! So, I love it but i don't think I would repurchase it...
The Naked palette is simply gorgeous. I have to admit, when I first purchased it, I was looking forward to having a wonderful daytime palette. The main issue I had with it as a daytime palette is that I just don't generally wear super shimmery colors during the day. It's just a personal preference. However, it's BEAUTIFUL for evening. The most wonderful palette I've ever had for gorgeous, dramatic, but defined and naturally colored eyes. I've never been a bright eyeshadow person, so a palette like this of shimmery buildable colors is simply perfect for a sexy date-night look. Of course, it's UD so all the colors are super pigmented, buttery smooth and blendable. Love it. Did it fit the purpose I originally purchased it for? Nope. But it did it's true purpose so much better. Will definitely be repurchasing.
Love this palette for the wearable neutrals. This palette is one I use everyday but works equally well for night or day, going out or going to work. I've had this palette for a year and this is probably my most used eyeshadow. The only negative thing is that most of the shadows are a little sparkly - if you like matte colors you may want to try another palette.
