I've recently been making ruthless clear outs in my beauty stash and it's left me with a lot more room, meaning all the products I couldn't get to easily and forgot about, are now within reach and easy to grab hold of.

I own all three of the Urban Decay Naked palettes, as well as the Naked Basics palette, and they are some of my favourites for the beautiful shades they include - yet I hardly use them. It's time I started using them more and I've definitely been getting my money's worth out of the original Urban Decay Naked Eyeshadow Palette (£37) over the past couple of weeks! Urban Decay are definitely up there at the top for me where eyeshadows are concerned, and I think they are some of the best shadows you can get. The Naked palette is the perfect palette for anyone just getting into makeup, fans of neutrals and anyone who simply can't resist the lure of a beautiful eyeshadow palette.

Presented in a sturdy cardboard deep chocolate velvet textured casing with gold detailing, it includes a compact mirror and a Good Karma Dual-ended Eyeshadow Brush as well as a sample of Primer Potion (not pictured). It's fairly light so would be very easy to travel with and the shades work well to compliment and flatter my olive skintone; although I think it'd would just as well with paler beauties and darker vixens too. Of the three larger Naked palettes, the first is my favourite because I prefer warmer toned shades and find they work best against my complexion. The palette contains 12 shades with a variety of finishes; satin, shimmer, matte and glitter, with shades that are incredibly pigmented, easy to apply with very little fallout and great longevity; these shadows don't smudge, budge or fade throughout the day.

Virgin is a nude satin.
Sin is a champagne shimmer.
Naked is a buff matte.
Sidecar is a beige with glitter finish.
Buck is a brown matte.
Half Baked is a bronze shimmer.
Smog is a golden brown shimmer.
Darkhorse is a dark bronze shimmer.
Toasted is a taupe shimmer.
Hustle is a mocha shimmer.
Creep is a black with sparkle.
Gunmetal is a dark grey with sparkle.

For me, the variety and combination of shades makes it effortless to create a whole host of different looks using the Naked palette. There's something for the true neutral fans, shades perfect for a day look, shades with a bit more oomph for colours that make a look pop, and shades which work perfectly to transition from day to night. There isn't a single shade within the palette I haven't used, but I do tend to turn to Virgin, Sin, Sidecar, Half Baked, Smog and Hustle the most. 

Everyone raves about the Urban Decay Naked palettes and there's always a lot of hype around the palettes, which I personally think is totally justified. Urban Decay know what they're doing when it comes to eyeshadows, and the result is a collection of stunning palettes with beautiful shadows. Naked is definitely my favourite of all the Naked palettes, the original and best for me! Do I think the Naked palettes are worth the hype? Totally, and I would definitely recommend the original Naked palette for anyone who wants to get into Urban Decay or wants to invest in a palette which you'll get a lot of us out of.

  1. I absolutely love Urban Decay; I've got a few of their smaller palettes (which include Smog, Toasted and Dark Horse - I never realised they're in Naked!) as well as Naked 2. Naked 2 is my favourite as it's suits me cool skin tone better :) I agree they're worth every penny!
    I'm hoping now the UK has a UD website, we'll get the amazing sales like they have in the US!

    1. I definitely agree and think Naked 2 suits cooler skin tones. I have yellow undertones, so Naked is perfect for me :) I hope so too, it would be so amazing if they did! xo

    1. I really couldn't recommend them enough. The first Naked palette is my favourite of the three large Naked palettes, but they are all absolutely lovely! I also highly recommend the Naked Basics palette are a perfect starting palette for eyeshadow newbies :) xo

  7. I can't get enough of this palette! I've had it for ages, and I still get so much use out of it. I've even hit pan on some, which is sad haha.

    1. Aha yes it's always sad to hit pan on a product, but it shows how much you use it and you're getting your money's worth! :) Plus, when it's all used up, you get to repurchase a beautiful fresh and new one! xo

  10. the only one i don't have is naked basics 1 but it's because i didn't like how warm the shadows were on me so i gave it to a friend whose coloring works better with it. whenever i rotate my palettes, i usually always have a naked palette included with a bright one. =]

    1. I think the Naked Basics 2 palette sounds perfect for you in that case! :) I love it personally, find it perfect for a basic neutral eye. xo

  12. Good post. Ive been looking at getting the 1 or 3 palette... not sure which as they both look very similar. But there just so expensive. Perhaps i'll wait and get them for a christmas present :) xo

    1. I think the Naked 3 is very different to the first Naked palette, but it's equally as beautiful! I'll be sharing a review of it soon :) I really do think they're worth the investment, especially when you break down the price per shade and how much it'd cost to buy each individually! They last forever, too. I think I've only ever hit pan on almost all shades on one palette, ever. xo
