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.
This eye shadow pallete is AMAZING. Perfectly pigmented, glides on easily, super blendable, and the colors are perfect for every day wear or to create a glamorous evening look. In the past, I was never a huge eye shadow fan.. but this stuff has changed me! I cannot go out of the house without applying it. I will continue to buy this for the rest of my life probably.
I like the colors, great for every day makeup, some of the colors could have been switched for more mattes, but other than that, it's really great :)
Best eyeshadow palette I have EVER had, I use it almost every single day!
The colors are universally flattering earthy tones
The palette contain both muted and bright choices, so there is something for both daytime and nighttime.
The colors are very pigmented yet easy to blend
All the colors go well together
They last all day if worn with a primer underneath
There aren't a lot of mat choices (only 2), most of them have subtle shimmer.
Talc is a main ingredient in many of the eyeshadows.
The packaging (velvet covered cardboard) doesn't last well and look dirty in a matter of weeks and the gold letters stamped across the front break down quickly
Note: This palette is the warm choice palette while Naked II is cool.
The brush that comes with the palette is nothing special, very 'meh'.
