Urban Decay Naked Palette


If you like neutral eyeshadows, then you will love this palette! Check out my full review and swatches.

This review is long overdue, but here it is anyways…

Urban Decay’s Naked palette has been out for quite a while, at least a year I think. In fact, they already released the Naked 2 palette. I purchased this right after Christmas. I could never bring myself to spend the $50 until I received a $25 Sephora gift card for Christmas.

Let me start by saying Urban Decay eyeshadows are amazing! They are pretty much the only pressed shadows that I use. Also, they are like the only non-indie eyeshadows I wear. These eyeshadows go on smoothly, are easy to blend and last all day. If you like neutral eyeshadows, the Naked palettes are PERFECT for you!

This is what the Naked palette looks like when you purchase it (minus the outer plastic which created glare in the photo.) The palette holds a brush and it also comes with a sample size of the popular UD Primer Potion.

The outside of the palette is brown, velvety, and soft.

The palette contains 12 different shades, 4 of which are exclusive to the palette. Between the 12 shades there are matte, shimmer, satin, and sparkle.

First 6 shades…Virgin, Sin, Naked, Sidecar, Buck, and Half Baked.

Second 6 shades…Smog, Darkhorse, Toasted, Hustle, Creep, and Gunmetal.

Here are swatches of all 12 shades. (Click images to view larger.)

I couldn’t get the best photos of these eyeshadows, but they are awesome. They look much better in person.

Overall Thoughts:

I LOVE this palette! You can do so many looks with it, work looks and smokey eyes for date nights. I use my Naked palette pretty much every single day!

I don’t have the Naked 2 palette, so I can’t say which one is better. The colors are similar in them, but different. From what I hear, this first palette has more gold/bronze colors than the second one. Naked 2 also has nicer packaging from what I’ve seen.

I highly recommend the Naked Palette. You can purchase it at Sephora, Ulta, or UrbanDecay.com.
