Awsome! The naked palette is my favorite, I've never really liked shimmer eyeshadows I use matte but I decided to give this a go since I got it as a gift from my mother && I'm in love with it! Have never loved shimmer but I can definitely pull it off with the naked (:
I got this as a gift and it was honestly one of the best gifts a guy has ever got me! He did good. Okay so basically, everyone had this and I heard a lot about it but I was never into neutrals because they look so boring. AND then I met Naked. Hellooo NAKED.
Neutrals come first in my life, even before cheddar cheese.
LOVE: The packaging, so cuteeee.
The colors ESP half baked which i'm totally done with #fml
SO pigmented and nice the looks you can create are endless.
Never has makeup made me happier until I met Naked.
The primer sample it comes with.
The cute UD brush.
DONT LOVE: The price.
How quickly I FINISHED eye shadow, Didn't know that was possible.
I literally have never finished makeup until I got this and used the half baked color. I'd use it with everything. I'd use it for a daily look or for going out. I LOVE IT MORE THAN LIFE.
I love using the color virgin under my brow bone to make my eyebrows look more arched.
I use the color dark horse to fill in my eyebrows.
And the color sin to put in my tear ducts and under my eyes to make them pop!
I really don't even know where to begin. I LOVE this palette. The looks you can create really are endless. Lately, I love wearing Sin all over the lid, then I throw some Buck into the crease, blend the outer corner with Toasted, and lastly I use a touch of Virgin to highlight the brow bone and inner corners of my eyes. The result is a super lovely, sultry, natural look that is suitable for any occasion. School, work, dates, clubbing, anything! This palette is more than worth the $50 that it costs. Primarily because it will last forever, and the product is amazing. I can put this stuff on at 6:00 in the morning, work a 12 hour shift, and my eyeshadow still looks amazing and creaseless by 10:00 pm. Plus, a little goes a loooong way. I barely even tap my brush into the eyeshadow, and I have more than enough for my entire eyelid. The pigmentation is amazing, and I never experience fallout with this stuff as long as I tap any excess off of my brush before application. If my house burned down, I wouldn't hesitate to run out and buy a new one of these bad boys. Naked II and Naked Basics are amazing as well! Buy it, you WON'T regret it!
It really is worth five stars. Buy into the hype - it's really that great.
I have them both. Very beautiful shadows great pigment . Sometimes to shimmery and glittery for every day but I am more of a matte girl anyways. Very versatile and will last forever. Have had naked for 2 years and makes two for a year and have tons left
-Pigmentation is great
-As someone with a warmer skin-tone, I lean toward this palette over the Naked2 palette.
-A lot of product
-Comes with a high-quality eyeshadow brush i use daily
-WAY too shimmery and glittery
-the "sidecar" shade has crazy fall-out, no matter how much primer you use
-The "velvety" case gets dirty easily and the print on the case wears off easily
I caved in to purchasing the Naked palette due to all the hype. I thought it'd be great for creating daily looks. Once I received it in the mail and started using it, I realized how shimmery and glittery it was. This can be a good or bad thing, depending on your preferences. But unfortunately for me, I guess the shimmery/metallicy-ness of the majority of the palette didn't sit too nicely on my face. A year after buying it, this palette sits in the back of my makeup drawer, and I only use the mattes and highlighter shades occasionally. Other than that, all the other colors remain virtually untouched. I can see this palette being ideal for shimmer-lovers and younger gals. But my honest opinion is that this palette is just way too shimmery to create a natural, neutral look.
Amazing eye shadows and a free great quality eye shadow brush! What more can a girl want.
This was my first ever high end eyeshadow palette. And I love it!! The colors are super pigmented and have lasted me for about 2 years now and I still haven't hit pan.. The shadows are all amazing quality and they are very smooth and not chalky whatsoever. The color selection is great and there is a mixture of matte and shimmery shadows (more shimmery though..). I wish the packaging had a snap closure, and the fuzzy case gets pretty dirty. But I like that it has a mirror inside. It's pretty expensive, but definitely worth it!
To start off this review, i have both palettes and there are some differences between the two. The Naked palette is more of a darker neutral palette that i tend to lean towards when wanting a everyday smokey eye or even dramatic nighttime smokey eye, you can use it for everyday but i tend to grab for it for the reasons stated above! The packaging is okay, but i don't like how things can stick to the 'velvety' packaging, i have dogs so little hairs will occasionally stick to this palette, but thats a quick fix! One last thing about the packaging is that it is a little flimsy at times but if dropped holds together very well and protects the shadows! One thing i don't like is how both Naked palettes have the color "Half Baked", why not add a different shade of gold to the Naked or Naked 2? Other than that i am going to go onto the colors, my go to colors in this palette are Virgin, Sin, Naked, Sidecar, and Toasted these are great for everyday but if you want a smokey eye these definitely go good with darker colors like Hustle, Creep and Gunmetal! I do recommend this to everyone as i think these colors would look good on any skintone and these are very high quality shadows, easily blendable and look great up close and from afar! I think this is worth the price and if you can get it on sale, makes it even a greater buy!
Well, I held out a long time since I don't wear eyeshadow all the time... I go thru phases of wearing it... but I had a 15% off coupon last month and I finally pulled the trigger and got this pallette... and as already noted many, many times... it's totally worth it.
Beautiful colors... they stay put! (Imagine that)... I love it.
I've worn it every day since I received it in the mail....
You won't be disappointed....
