Urban Decay Naked Palette

I ended up getting my own Urban Decay Naked Palette after giving my mom one for Mother’s Day. She really likes hers, so I figured I’d get one too which works out since some of my readers wrote me asking to see looks from other makeup brands as well. :) This is a really popular palette and is often sold out, and now I can see why! Regardless of skin tone and eye color, the eye shadows in this palette are universally flattering. This palette also comes in a nice assortment of matte, shimmer, and metallic finishes.

The picture on the left is how the Naked Palette is packaged. The outside of the case is covered in dark brown velvet, and the name of the palette is displayed with gold foil lettering. The top of the palette opens up and has a mirror, and there are magnets to keep the palette closed. In addition to the eye shadows, the Naked Palette comes with a Good Karma Eyeshadow Brush and a 0.13 oz travel-size Eyeshadow Primer Potion.

The Naked Palette comes with 12 neutral eye shadows. If you click on the picture above, you’ll see a better view of the eye shadow swatches (without any primer underneath). From left to right, the names of the colors are: Virgin (nude satin), Sin (champagne shimmer), Naked (buff matte), Sidecar (beige sparkle), Buck (brown matte), Half Baked (bronze), Smog (golden brown shimmer), Darkhorse (bronze-plum shimmer), Toasted (taupe-bronze), Hustle (mocha shimmer), Creep (near-black metallic), and Gunmetal (dark grey metallic).

Here’s a closeup of the Good Karma Eyeshadow Brush that comes with this palette (the original version of the Naked Palette came with a double-ended 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil with “Zero” (black) and “Whiskey” (rich brown) instead of this brush). This brush is the same width as MAC 239 Eye Shader Brush, but the tip of the brush is longer and rounder. The flat sides of the brush are meant to be used for an all-over sweep of color whereas the fine, rounded tip is for more precise application. This is a full-size brush, which can be purchased separately online for $26.00. This makes the Naked Palette an even better deal at only $48.00 for everything that it comes with!

My only complaints: 1. “Sidecar” eye shadow has glitter in it that can easily lead to fallout if you’re not careful applying it, and 2. I wish it came with more highlight colors (but given the range of colors it has, this palette is pretty awesome)! Overall, I think Naked Palette would be great for just about anyone that can get her hands on it! This is something I’d definitely take with me when I pack for vacation. I’ll be creating some makeup looks using this palette, so be on the lookout! :)

I have not 1 but 2 of the Naked Palettes and it is definitely a go to palette. As a makeup artist, its so much more convenient to have palettes and although many of the colors have dupes in the end it would be more expensive to collect each individual color’s dupe and not very space effective. When someone wants a neutral look or a “natural” look the mattes (I wish it had more mattes though) are the perfect base color and sometimes all over lid color!
