I don't even know where to begin...
I'm extremely disappointed of this palette. I'm so mad at myself for spending so much money on it.
The packaging is gorgeous. I love the velvet softness of it and it closes well and it's sleek and fits perfectly on my purse etc.
But... the eye shadows are not worth the hype, imo.
I find that some of them are hard to blend, especially Buck, which is also way too red for my skin tone and it makes my eyes look like I have rash on my crease. Last time I used Buck on my crease, it also left a streak in there which I couldn't get blended. The streak just got stuck on the dry part of my eyelid (yes, I had primer on).
Same thing had happened with some of the other shades. They don't blend well (they leave streaks).
Also the lighter matte shade Naked was a disappointment for me. I thought it would be a great for blending and I was mostly excited for that color, but it looked really yellow when I applied it on my pale cool tone skin.
I like the highlight color Virgin, but it's very powdery and leaves powder dust all over the pan.
Many of the colors are really not creamy, even if so many reviews say so. I have many Wet'n'Wild eye shadows which are, hands down, much creamier than these and they also blend much better.
This palette is way overrated.
I gave this palette two lipsticks, because half of the colors actually are usable for me, like Virgin (it's powdery, but pretty), Sin, Sidecar (maybe a bit too shimmery, though),Toasted, Hustle and Gunmetal. Other colors are too red or yellow (warm) toned or then they just don't blend well enough.
The best part of this palette was absolutely that little sample of Primer Potion. It's amazing.
The eye shadow brush that came with this palette does not work for packing on color, because the color doesn't stick on it. It's synthetic and very dense and smooth. It suits much better for applying concealer.
I can see that this palette will suit better on people with warm medium skin tones and people with very smooth eye lids (no dry spots or wrinkles).
Not worth the hype, sad but true.

I can't say anything that hasn't already been said, so I won't try.
I'm NW45. I haven't worn all colors yet, but very versatile for neutral looks that can be for day or night.

big fan of this product but surprisingly this is not my fave eyshadow palette! my fave is still my shiseido luminizing trio in strata. this one is fantastic though but if i lost it or something i'd probably want to try a different nude palette, there's not actually many colours i absolutely can't live without. & i actually like shimmer/satin colours more than matte so that was fine for me. the highlighter shade i dig but i have a few other highlighter shades from shiseido & stila that i like equally as well.
i do recommend this product though & don't regret buying it, it's convenient & great to use.

I bought this during Sephora's F&F sale for 20% off, after a co-worker basically forced me to - she was buying another for herself in case it's ever discontinued (unlikely, since it's so popular, but I figured she must really love it). It's fantastic. The shadows wear all day and I've used every shade with success. I recently went on a two-week trip and I've never looked so nice in vacation pictures, because I suddenly had every shadow I could have wanted on the go - very convenient. Sure, there are dupes out there, but not in a similar package takes up so little space in a bag. I also am a big fan of the primer.

Not sure I'll purchase the Naked2, as I tend to favor warm tones... and honestly, this palette has everything I need.

Con - like others have said, the brush isn't great for shadow, and I wish one or two of the shimmers were matte.

Oh Naked Palette, you don't really need another glowing review you, do you? I wish I could find the words to describe how much I adore you, but I'll just leave it at 5 lippies.

Great product - have been using it for a month now and love all the shades. Would have liked to see one or two more darker matte ones. Overall, great pigmentation, little fallout, creamy blendable texture. Packaging is sleek and very nice.

Yup, I fell for it - the hype over this product that is. I hate to be the debbie downer here but this is an incredibly over-rated product IMO. Over the years, I have tried many different brands, everything from Wet n Wild to NARS. The packaging is wonderful, I spend a lot of time back and forth visiting the bf/family/friends and the idea of a single case to hold a multitude of beautiful shadows really appealed to me. The shades are to die for, dont get me wrong. My beef is with the texture. Some of the shadows go on so pale and chalky, only 1 or 2 are what I would consider "creamy" or "buttery." (and girlfriend is an NW25 over here okay, so Im not even tan). The shades I like the best are the shimmery ones and these left me with unbelievable fall-out. Im sorry, but a $50 palette should not require so much prep and clean-up to create a decent look.

Yes, I am being a little harsh, but I have found shades that are similar and better quality for a cheaper or comparable price. (For example, I could just carry around my MAC palettes). The novelty of this item intrigued me, but left me feeling quite disappointed.

I purchased the naked palette from so much hype. I went to my sephora and purchased the original naked palette, super excited, came home and tried it. :( well the colors look gorgeous......however on my warm olive skin, the colors seemed to look muddy and dirty! I have tried using different primers, different brushes, washed all my brushes to make sure they have no residue from previous eye shadows and they ALL look muddy and dirty, what the heck. Pretty colors but not on my lids, that sucked but oh we'll. I wanted to keep it. It for $48 bucks went back to sephora. I know I'm the minority here but...the colors didn't work for me. I think that if you are fair, the colors would pop and would look lovely.
