After seeing many bloggers and Youtubers rave and rave about this, I finally got my hands on the Urban Decay Naked Palette to see what the hype is all about.
Great color section. With a total of 12 wearable neutrals ranging from light beiges and taupes to warm bronzes to dark browns and charcoals, this palette has everything you need to create looks that are both great for work and for going out. I also love that the eyeshadows come in different textures including Matte, Satin, Shimmer and Sparkle, making the palette truly versatile.
Great pigmentation. As with most Urban Decay eyeshadows, these babies – even the Matte ones – apply very smoothly with superb pigmentation. Loves!
Great value. A regular Urban Decay eyeshadow retails $17 a pop and with this, you get 12 along with a trial size of the famous Primer Potion and a double ended 24/7 Glide-on Eye Pencil in Zero and Whiskey for $44! How can you beat that?
My only complains? The case measures almost 8 inches long and is a little too big to fit in my makeup bag. It would also be nice if Urban Decay included a flat eyeshadow brush for the shadows. That way, all you need is a mascara and you are set!
More pictures and swatches!
Below is me wearing Half Baked and Smog from the Naked Palette for my ELLE January 2011 editorial:
The Urban Decay Naked Palette is available at Sephora, Urban Decay and Ulta but since it is sold out in most places and so hard to find, I have snatched an extra one to give away to one lucky lady. Stay tuned for the giveaway details later this week!
