I caved in and finally bought this, and I'm very happy with it! Finally, an eye shadow that lasts all day on my oily lids!
The colors are very neutral for everyday looks, but you turn it from day to night if you want. I love that there are some shimmery ones as well as matte ones to give you a good selection. There are so many combinations you can play around with to get a gorgeous look.
Yes, the price is steep, but the quality is fantastic!
My go to eyeshadow, i use this everyday for work. Great lasting power and great selection of colours. Have managed to convince a number for friends to buy this and all are equally impressed. Next time one of my friends heads towards USA i will get them to grab me naked palette 2.
I use the darker shades for nights out, blends really smoothly to give a look that looks classy and not overdone.
I cant recommend this palette enough.
I caved in, and when asked what I wanted as a gift I chose this and the primer potion.
Im glad I did,as I love it.
I am so happy I bought the Naked Palette! I had a $50 giftcard to Ulta, so I was looking for something to splurge on. I would not normally spend that much money on a makeup item, but I am so thrilled that I did for the Naked Palette! The colors are beautiful, a nice range of browns, lots of shimmery colors and two matte shades. I have had this palette for a month and I have used it everyday since purchasing it! I find ways to create new looks everyday. I would recommend this to someone looking for a nice, good quality, pigmented shimmery/neutral palette.
$50 for this palette I was about to pass.. but since I've had numerous friends tell me how amazing this palette was, I just had to get it. I'm SO glad I did! It's pricey, yes, but the colors in this palette are amazing. The texture of them is like butter. It's true to color, what you see in the pan is what shows. The brush that comes with this palette also works really well! These colors blend super easily and can make a look for everyday or evening. If you're looking to invest in good neutral eyeshadows I highly recommend this. The packaging is also really cute. You also get a mini primer potion which is of course amazing. :)
So I'm a little late to the party, but I love this palette! I couldn't believe I didn't buy this sooner. I love neutrals for my eyes and the colors in this palette are all wearable for me. It glides on perfect and the colors stay on all day (with the help of UDPP of course). I decided to get this one instead of Naked2 because I feel the colors in this one suit me better.
I love this Palette. It was my first urban decay purchase. The colors are gorgeous and so pigmented I haven't used anything since and will be getting more. What I love is how many looks you can create with one palette
I debated for a while whether or not to buy this palette because of the price but I am SO GLAD I DID! The colours are smooth, blendable, and have amazing staying power. Not to mention, the tiny vial of primer potion is really fantastic. This was the first Urban Decay product I ever bought and now i'm a lifetime fan, totally worth the price.
For those who say that this palette is "too dark for fair skin" or that "the colors don't work for pale people", I am a pale person and I disagree. I have no problem with 8/12 shades, and they all look fine on me.
That being said, this palette is not the be-all, end-all that it is hyped to be. If you are not generally a fan of neutral eye looks, do not buy this. If the number of matte shades in a palette is very important to you, do not buy this, and buy the Sonia Kashuk neutral eye palette instead. Urban Decay has created a versatile range of colors that work for a number of people, and the Naked 1 has become my go to travel palette. I can create day or evening eye looks, highlight my face with the lightest shades, and fill in my brows with the matte brown.
If you have pale/fair/medium skin and like neutral shadows with shimmer/metallic/glitter finishes, you will get a lot of use out of this palette. I have never regretted buying it, and even re-purchased it when my first palette was stolen from me.
This really is a great eye shadow palette, especially if your in to your more neutral shades. I never wear bright eye shadows just neutrals and smokey colours so this has everything I need. Its also really good value form money when you think how much you get from it.
