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.
I love this palette! Its great for both day and night!
They have some subtle colours which are great if you want the professional look and they have some sexy smokey colours for nights out.
The palette is also bigger then I thought! The pics online make it look a lot smaller.
This product is perfect for girls who love natural colours!
Great product with great colors! If you want it for $35 go on http://theblueoutlet.com/collections/eyeshadow/products/naked-palette-1
I know this palette has many reviews, so I'll just add my two cents as well. :) I've had this palette for over 17 months, and I can honestly say that the quality, variety of shades, and mix of finishes, are quite exquisite. For everyday look(s), I'll do one of two looks: 1.)Virgin on inner corners, Naked all over lid, smog on bottom half of lid near lash line, Sin on inner third, and Darkhorse on outer third. 2.)Virgin, naked, sin on same areas as 1., exchange toasted for smog, and hustle for darkhorse.
The shadows are very buttery feeling and blendable. I love the two matte shades, Naked and Buck(which I use for my brows) Naked is also a good contouring shade for my nose area, and Half-baked is a beautiful gold shade that is perfect for brightening up the eyes. Side-car is too glittery for me, it literally is a glitter bomb, which is great for a party look, but not for everyday, in my opinion. I wish Creep was a matte black instead of a glittery black and that Gunmetal would not have chunky silver glitters in it. Besides the chunky glitter, the mix of shades is wonderful.
I've put off buying other palettes because frankly, this palette will last me quite a while, which is great on my budget. Highly recommended!
I decided to go ahead and purchased this palette since everyone was raving about it, I've been using this palette everyday for the past 2 months and I must say I love it! It has 12 eye shadows, 10 are shimmery and only 2 are matte... I do with they put more matte shadows in it and have a black instead of a blue but oh well! Its overall a great palette and worth the money, will repurchase but doubt I will have too since this palette is going to last me a long time!
i am a hypocrite. i was that girl who said how mainstream this palette is but i finally got my own since mymum actually offered me.
anyways i love this palette. it has beautiful colours. its darker than naked 2 and personally i think it suits tanned skin so much better than naked 2.
it has matte and shimmery colour so you can mix blend and all. overall i still think i can get dupes of naked from other cheaper brands but this palette is definitely awesome
The HG of eyeshadows in my collection (use this more often than the Book of Shadows). I bring it with me to wherever I go - work, travelling or just out and about. Some of the darker shades (mostly the blacks) are very pigmented but I don't use it often because I am more of a neutral colour girl. The eyeliner that comes with it works just as fine. Although this is tipping on the more expensive side of the scale, it's worth every penny to invest on this. Definitely will get it again IF I ever run out on this (like the Naked 2 perhaps?).
The dark colours are nicely pigmented.
The light ones e.g. Half Baked, Virgin are not pigmented enough. They just look like translucent shimmer on my NC20ish Asian skin tone.
The dark colours aren't terribly flattering on my skin either... They just look muddy.
Estee Lauder eyeshadow has less fall out, more pigment.
I love this pallete a lot! And this is the first time me having this many color on one pallete. Normally i ended up buy two or three-color palletes. Practically, i use this everyday to work and on weekend as well. I also love the fact that it has the little promer with it..but sadly it's very small, i ran out of it quite fast..and now i have bought the new one in tube. Packaging wise, at first i was very velvety beautiful with the golden engraved, but after now having it for almost a year, it became so ugly. Anyway i'm still loving it :).
I just dont understand why it was said that will inly last for 6 months after the first use. There's no way you can finish it in 6 months, unless you are a makeup artist.. Hhmm maybe it's just a marketing trick that makes you thunk you should buy another one even when you havent finish it.
I might/might no buy it again, still hasnt decided, if later i find other interesting products from urban decay i might switch to those ones.
This is a great makeup palette! especially if you are first starting to wear eyeshadow. The colors are great. Theres a mixture of matte eyeshadows and very shimmery eyeshadows, but overall they are all great. the colors last all day and are just amazing.
