There isn't much to say about the NAKED palette. The pigmentation is outstanding, the packaging is cute, and the shadows are all soft and saturated. You can do anything from a neutral to a smokey. This is one of those few products that really does live up to its expectations and hype. Wonderful product, It's a staple, and I never want to go without it.

I think I can create many looks with this palette, but for me it lacks of 2 very important shades: black and dark brown, so I feel it is kind of incomplete. Great neutral colors overall, but can't stand the glittery fallout all over my face.

This palette was super popular all over youtube. I could never justify forking over the $58cdn to buy this myself, so i held off. Held off that is until recently when I received an unexpected Sephora GC from my sweetie :D I figured, this would be the best time to try it out since it wouldn't cost me anything haha I did take a look at the NAKED2 as well when I was in sephora but decided to go with the original. NAKED2 had mainly/more taupey/smokey colors vs NAKED which had a more greater color selection of warms,cools,darks etc (it seemed). I tested this out last night for a family bday dinner and let me say, WOW this palette is AMAZING!!I i tried to use a bit of all the colors in my eye look just to test out the quality of the shadows. There are different finishes as well (matte,satin,shimmery and frosty). Some of the colors i found weren't as "pigmented" as others, but they all blended beautifully. I believe the edition i got was a "revised" one since it came with a "karma brush" opposed to the dual ended 24/7 pencil. All in all, I can totally see myself reaching for this palette for both natural and natural smokey eye looks. I <3 this palette!

LOVE this palette because of the variety of colors it offers, and the unlimited combinations and looks you can make with this 1 palette. I barely use any of my old eyeshadow anymore because this one has everything you could ever need (as far as neutrals). Its really good for everyday wear because i like a natural look, and the browns, golds, peach, and shimmery colors look amazing. There's a nice balance between how some of the eyeshadows are matte and some are shimmery. There IS some fall-out when i apply it, where a few specks and crumbles of eyeshadow will fall during application but its not that big of a problem. There's so much versatility and so many options with this palette and that's why i like it. Plus they all look great, its pretty hard to mess it up.

Downside: super expensive but its worth it because you're getting SO many colors, plus a really good quality brush and the primer potion which is amazing.

I was super excited to finally get my hands on this palette after reading all the rave reviews online. It was sold out on the Sephora website for the longest time. Finally, I ordered it online after like half a year of waiting for Sephora to restock their supply of UB Naked Palette.
I was really disappointed when it finally arrived. For starters, my palette had visible fingerprint marks on the eyeshadows. It looks as if I received a palette that was previously returned. I called Sephora to complain and they just told me to return it at their store. They didn't have anymore in stock and I didn't want to wait till they restocked their supply since I had already waited so long. So I decided to just scrape off the top layer of all the eyeshadows before I tried it out.
Needless to say, I was sorely disappointed. I have fair-medium skin with yellow undertones. The lighter shades provided a nice shimmer which was useful for highlighting. However, the darker shades appeared too "ruddy" on me. It was too pigmented and didn't blend well for me. I tried using different brushes and techniques. I even tried to do what some of the other girls on YouTube were doing on their Naked palette tutorial. Nothing worked. I ended up exchanging it for the Too Faced Naked Eye palette.
Overall, I thought this product was just "okay". I really don't see what the hype is all about.

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.
