I am so excited to write this post! eek. If you have seen my October Beauty Wishlist you would know that this lovely little beauty was upon those of many other beauty products that I wanted to buy this month. I have finally added the original Urban Decay Naked Palette to my makeup collection, yay! I have been deliberating buying this for ages but I just couldn't seem to part with the money until now. I bought it for £39 from House of Fraser and that includes the p&p too. I know that it seems like a hell of a lot of money to pay for an eyeshadow palette but it's definitely worth the money.
It's certainly not an ordinary palette, it has it's very own unique shades and names, 2 of which are matte shades and the rest are shimmers. It also comes with a mini eyeshadow primer potion and a Karma brush to apply the eyeshadow. The packaging has a suede effect and feels very luxurious, which is great, who wants a tacky, horrible looking palette when it has a big price tag? Nobody.
Since I bought the Naked Palette I have been experimenting with all the shades but only worn them once in the daytime for my very first day at my work experience.
I found that at the end of the day the eyeshadow didn't fade at all which I am so impressed with. Applying the primer potion before applying my eyeshadow certainly helped keep it all in place.
As you can see in the swatches above there are four shades with less pigmentation than the others but that's only because they are slightly lighter colours. The shade 'Virgin' is a lovely white shade which is great for highlighting the brow bone and the inner corners of the eyes. I found that using this shade in the inner corners really make the eyes 'pop' and make the eyes look slightly wider and brighter. My favourite shades of this palette has to be half baked, smog and toasted. These shades really make my eyes stand out and they're great for creating smokey effects(sorry for the bad lighting!).
At the moment it's my number one eyeshadow palette and I really can't fault it, I have nothing negative to say about it.
Do you have a Naked Palette? What are your thoughts?
