So I finally got Naked: UD Naked Palette review and swatches

I don’t remember the last time there was such hoopla over a non-limited edition eye shadow palette. It’s a gorgeous palette for sure, but I doubt that anybody could have predicted just how popular the Naked Palette would be, or how quickly it would sell out each time new stock arrives.

Behold- the legendary Naked Palette…

 

Everybody wants to look good NAKED! Far from a group of boring beige shadows, this long, lean, seductive case is packed with TWELVE gorgeous neutrals, including FIVE NEW shades, and includes our pro-quality Good Karma Shadow Brush. [description from Urban Decay website]

Price: The Naked palette retails for $48, but I paid about $55 USD for this palette on beauty bay (like the chump that I am)

Availability: www.urbandecay.com , Sephora, www.beautybay.com

 

 

I generally don’t buy palettes because I usually find that I only like half the colours/textures in each palette. I’m a single eye shadows kinda gal.

The Urban Decay Palette, on the other hand, is different. Every colour is useful, gorgeous, and pigmented (I hate it when there’s only 2 colours in a quad that has decent colour payoff), and there is a good mixture of mattes and shimmers.

I feel like I could use nothing but this palette on my eyes every day for months and be quite content- you can create looks ranging from barely there, to sooty sultry eyes. Chuck in a few bright colours in your makeup bag and you are set for that long trip you’ve been planning :)

To prove my point, I’ve got some Face of the Days coming up using this palette- first one to go up will be tomorrow!

ps- I just realised that I had left out ‘smog’ in my swatches. Fail!

pps- I also just realised that I’ll probably be getting the wrong kind of traffic to this post. Ah well..  nothing to see here, boys.
