This is my absolute favorite eye shadow palette. I will keep buying this again & again. Though luckily it seems to last a very long time for me. In my opinion, neutral eye shadow is the way to go. You can create many different looks using this palette. Beautiful colors, & very versatile.
I absolutely lovvveeee my Naked palette. I more so use the first half of the palette because I enjoy subtle smokey eyes oppose to the intense black or dark shadows. If anything, I like to use the dark shadows to smoke out my lower lash line. My favs are def Virgin (inner tear duct) and Naked (transition/crease). The shadows are so buttery and smoothe, def top notch quality.
The quality of these shadows far surpasses the rest of Urban Decay's. I have multiple UD palettes, and while I like them, most of the colors are quite ho hum in terms of finish and pigmentation. Not these babies! Smooth, rich, pigmented. True to pan. My current HG brow shade (Hustle), as well as great colors for either a neautal look or a great smokey eye. The only think missing is a good matte black/gray. I reach for this alot more than I thought I would. It really has given me an appetite for more neutral looks. And now I want Naked2...
I absolutely love this product. I'm always on the search for a duo or quad that I can use on a daily basis for a natural look, and this is the only thing I'll ever need! I love having a variety of colors in easy packaging, and the quality of the shadows is excellent. Some of the shimmers have more fallout than I'd like (especially compared to the matte neutrals), but it isn't enough to deter me from using them.
The only thing I'm not a huge fan of is the brush. I experience a LOT more fallout when using it, as I didn't feel the shadow was really adhering to the brush. I ended up using one of my Sephora brushes and haven't had a problem. The brush provided is really soft, but just not up to the best quality.
Was very sceptical about buying this due to the price and I worried that it was going to be overrated.
However, I love this product especially after watching lots of tutorials on YouTube. Many of which the channel owners cannot praise this palette enough.
The shades complement my light eyes and fair skin perfectly and are subtle enough to wear as a natural look when going to school/college.
For a night out, it is easy to make your eyes pop by blending a few colours together - this product can be used day or night.
The mini primer is a god send because shadows usually slide off my lids due to them being oily.
Definitely recommend as it is so versatile with the look you can produce.
I've reviewed here the Naked palette,close up pictures and swatches, but I have also compared it with Nude'tude palette from the Balm. Which one is better? See in my blog post.
Hope it will help you choose the right one, or why not, buy them both :D
I have both Naked palettes but still prefer this one. It is so versatile and I can make any eye look that I want. The eyeshadows are super pigmented and also blend beautifully. My go to palette for any occasion!
There is no other make-up palette necessary! This is my go-to smokey and natural eye palette.
The colours are perfect and they stay on very well. Love to go for it even for eyebrows, 'Buck' is perfect for mine. The palette is totally worth the money.
Highly-rated, much-hyped products usually let me down. I'm a tough critic and hard to please. That being said, I'm happy to say this palette has lived up to the rave reviews. UD shadows are nicely pigmented, easily blendable, and versatile. There are several shades within this collection that I've used both as shadow and as liner (Hustle, Creep, & Gunmetal). Sidecar is very sparkly, but for a night out, this will make your eyes say, "Notice me!" (Especially great on hazel peepers - hazel-eyed gals MUST try this shadow.) Perhaps my favorite color in the collection is Virgin. It reminds me so much of my beloved & ever-dwindling Sleepy, a limited edition MAC shadow. Virgin has the rare capability to make my eyes look bright and my face look "awake" and "rested" (people have acutally commented as such when I wear it - that alone makes this palette worth the price.)
On a final note, I love the packaging. It's unique, plush, and luxurious. (Unlike the packaging for Naked 2 which looks cheap, cold, and industrial - yuck - but I won't go there just now.) If you've not yet taken the plunge and treated yourself to the original Naked palette, and can find it within your budget to do so, go for it.
