Urban Decay Naked (original) palette…

Ever since I posted about the 20% off of Urban Decay, I have had a couple of requests for review on the Naked palettes.. So, here are my thoughts on the Naked original palette..

I remember how I fell in love with these colors.. saw the palette at Sephora store, played around swatching the colors and HAD to get it!  The palette has a velvet brown covering on the outside with a cardboard casing.. Very sleek and great for travel.. It has a magnet to hold the top/lid in place….

The palette is gorgeous with mostly warm shades – ranging from pinks to nudes to shimmery colors to browns to purples and finally greys/gunmetal.. Note that there are only 2 matte shades in this palette (Naked & Buck).. so if you are a gal who is drawn towards matte colors, this palette may not be for you.. If, however U do like or don’t mind using shimmery shades, this palette is great.. The eyeshadows are very smooth and finely milled..

The palette did come initially with a dual ended 24/7 eyeliner in Zero (black) & Whiskey (brown) and a mini primer potion.. It has since been replaced with a flat eyeshadow brush..

Overall, I do enjoy this palette.. My favorite shades are Naked, Buck, Half baked, Toasted, Hustle, Smog and Dark horse.. What I enjoy most about this palette is the versatility – you can create a simple every day look using Naked and Buck or create a bronze / purple / silver smokey eye… I love that I can carry one palette and achieve all kinds of looks with it.. This is one palette I travel with most frequently.. 🙂
