A few days ago I finally got my hand on this cult favorite, the Urban Decay Naked Palette. This has to be one of my best purchases ever.
This palette retails for $48 and it has 12 warm neutral shadows, the Urban Decay Good Karma shadow brush and a small bottle of the original Urban Decay Primer Potion. I believe that when this palette first came out this contains a dual ended Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On pencil.
This is an amazing palette and I can't believe I have waited this long to purchase this. I have been meaning to get this for a long (exaggeratedly long!) time but I keep telling myself that I have a lot of neutral shadows and warm palettes already and I don't need this one. Boy, was I totally wrong. This palette lives up to the hype - no wonder everybody loves this!
The palette itself is very well thought of. The colors go together and you can make a whole range of day to night looks with just this palette. The shadows are very pigmented and for darker, smokey looks, it is buildable too. It is soft and blends easily. Virgin is a nice brow bone highlight and Naked and Buck are perfect blending colors. I love wearing neutral smokey eyes so my favorite shades from the palette would be Smog and Hustle with Naked as my blending shadow. For bright inner eye corners the perfect shadow would be Sin. As for the packaging, I'm loving the felt and cardboard material that makes it very lightweight. I would've liked a bigger mirror for this palette but other than that I have nothing bad to say about this palette. It is just AMAZING.
I have been taken over by this palette and I can't wait to get my hands on the NAKED2.
