After years of looking for an eye shadow to replace my beloved discontinued Revlon Wet/Dry shadow, I finally caved in to all the hype and bought this. I don't know if my expectations were too high based on all the rave reviews of this palette, but for the price I was expecting a shadow that would be highly pigmented- i.e. would show up really well, and that would have some staying power. Maybe it's just me, but even with the primer, none of these shadows are particularly spectacular on me. And I have e.l.f. shadows that cost a dollar that last longer on my eyes than these do. One thing I will say about this palette is that the colors are great, at least in the box. Unfortunately though, for me the search continues.
I have seen the positive reviews on this palette for years and have been curious about all the fuss. But I really wasn't into neutral colors previously so spending $50 on this palette didn't make sense. In the past few years I have gravitated more and more towards more neutral and interchangable colors and expressed an interest in this palette to my sister. Fortunately for me my wonderful sister purchased this for me for my birthday and I am so glad she did. I absolutely love this palette with all of the great but generally subtle colors. Most can be used together in one combination or another and I like the ease of having it all in one palette nice and convenient. The eye shadows are soft and blendable yet long lasting. The eye shadow brush that comes with the palette makes application a breeze and with the UDPP I got 10+ hours of wear from the shadows without creasing or fading. A mini UDPP comes with the palette. Yes, most of the colors are shimmers which I like. I guess that is my compromise for going to neutrals - I still need a bit of bling. I didn't have any trouble with fall out of the shimmer as some have stated. I have never said this about an eye shadow palette but I could take this on vacation and only take this with no back up eye shadow and be happy. Initially I thought the $50 price tag was too high but now that I have tried this out IMO it is well worth the money. I like this enough that if I should ever use the whole thing up I would repurchase. Now I want to check out Naked 2.
I was not too impressed with this product. I bought it because i read so many positive reviews about it but to me, this eyeshadow palette is just too ordinary for its price. the colors are nice, but nothing spectacular for $50 price tag. I can do same exact look with a cheaper $10 pallete from nyx and other drugstore eyeshadows such as maybelline, and loreal shadows which also has same colors.
This was my first expensive eyeshadow purchase ( all other eyeshadows I own are from drugstores). i find no difference in quality whatsoever. the lasting quality is okay, no better than any of my cheaper shadows.
for the same price, you can stock up on alot more eyeshadows at cvs, walgreens or walmart.
I would not purchase it again and my advise is to look for dupes for the colors as the quality is the same as drugstore shadows.
I couldn't decide if I wanted the Naked or Naked 2 after days of thought I decided to go with the naked palette and I made a great decision!!! Even better it was friends and family day at Ulta so I got 20% off!! I love this product will def buy again!! I recommend to all my friends! It's great for day wear and even better for night! Not to glittery just GREAT!!!!
Simply loving it! Everything you could ask for in an eye shadow palette
I am so in love with this! Ive been wanting to buy this for sooooo long but couldn't shell out 50$ so I finally mustered up the money and purchased this. Best purchase ever!!!!!! The colors are so pigmented and blend fabulously I love it I have so many different eye looks from this palette and they last all day and night if your thinking about purchasing this do it!!!!!
I'm in love with this palette. My friends gave me this almost two years ago and I still have all the eyeshadows. They have an amazing quality, and if you take care of them, they will last for ages, really. It has more shimmery colors, and even though I like to keep it natural, you can use some eyeshadows for an everyday look or for going out. These are probably the eyeshadows that I use 99% of the times that I wear makeup.
$55 on beautybay.com, 10 eyeshadows in warm colours.
cardboard palette so if it drops it minimizes breaking the eyeshadows, velvet lid with a mirror inside.
the colours are very wearable and can be combined to make so many different looks. 2 mattes and the rest are shimmer or velvet textures. the mattes are for the crease/transition colours and there are 2 highlight colours (that are shimmery) and the rest are gold tones, black with sparkle, and deep plum with shimmer and a gunmetal plus more.
the payoff is so amazing, they are very pigmented and they last all day without creasing when worn with a primer. without a primer, they last about 8-9 hours without creasing which is fabulous, better than mac in my opinion plus cheaper when you think about value.
i would reccommend this to women who do not want to buy a whole kit of colours and who want a savvy, smart purchase.
I love this palette the colors work so well for me and the eyeshadow quality is wonderful. the price is kind of expensive but it is worth I because of all the looks you can create. I just hate the packaging because it gets dirty so easily
